Sweet Pea was five weeks...two days ago. I'm finding it hard to find time to blog. I also realize I hardly write anything about the other kids, especially the boys. I'm going to try to remedy that this week.
At her doctor appt last Friday she weighed 8 lbs 3 oz. They measured her at 22 inches long, but honestly I don't really believe it. Their measuring method has never been reliable on my other kids until they are able to stand up on their own.
When we woke up Monday morning we realized we no longer had a newborn. It was like overnight she changed. I don't know if the new car smell wore off or what! Actually, it is just that when she is awake she is more alert and she is beginning to sleep in longer increments. She also looks different as she has filled out and her skin is smoothing out. In this picture she still has mitts on, but she's outgrown those onesies and now her hands are free most of the time-and she doesn't scratch herself up as she has a little more control over her arms.
We are working on NOT being held all the time...and not screaming about it when she isn't being held. Her lungs are nice and healthy! I promise I'll post at least one more time before Sunday. I need to get back in the saddle again.
Snug loves life. At eight years old, he is a big brother four times over, a role he takes very seriously. He loves to read, swim, run, play Legos, and hear stories. He is sensitive to the needs of others and has a very kind heart.
Little Monkey Man
Watch out world! This middle child is not about to be left out of anything! Formally known on this blog as "Baby J" he is a baby no longer. His sense of adventure is downright dangerous and he will push your buttons all day long. This six year old is very generous and has a sweet smile that will light up a room. Don't let him use his "eyes" on you or you may fall under his spell!
Four years old and quite the little lady. Not sure what we'll do with all of her emotions, but loving watching her grow. She loves ballet, preschool, and church and all of her friends-both real and stuffed variety.
She's three! Hard to believe how fast time goes by. She's my girl and she's demands lots of my love. Growing, changing, and making us all laugh (and scream...not gonna lie), this little one is so precious.
Oh this baby. Easiest one, cheeriest one. Laid back, happy, sweet.
