The Catch Up . . .

My First Baby...

You are currently the biggest social butterfly in school, so says your teachers. Not sure if this will be a good thing or bad thing down the line. For now, I am happy because I was a very shy kid. So, I am glad you are showing signs of being very outgoing.

You are such a sponge and remember everything I say to you! Your newest repeats that you say are..."Mom, you are freaking me out." Not the best one. My favorite though is, "Mom, can you do me a favor?" Hilarious!

You are obsessed with watching Cars now, and you often will role play with your "cars" toys each scene that goes on. You even do that with the Thomas the train shows you watch. I am just so amazed within the last two months how much you have grown up. You definitely are not a baby anymore.

Last week on the way home from school, I asked how your day was and what you had for snack and you told me, "Cupcakes." Oh. Who did you have cupcakes for Will? "For Baby Jesus mom! And we sang happy birthday to him but he was crying." I tell you, he had me in hysterics! I was laughing at how casual our conversation was. I finally have a little person to talk to and keep me company when Daddy is at work.

I also wanted to pose a question to moms out there...What does Santa do at your house? What kind of magic does he leave behind for your children to be amazed by? I am kinda stumped.

My Second Baby...

A routine is starting to come into light and I am so thankful for it. These past two months have flown by and have kind of blended together.

You smile, usually right after you are content from a feeding. Usually for Daddy. But, you do give them to mommy. You mostly like to talk to mommy.

Just this week you started sleeping 7 hour stretches at night. Knock on wood. Keeping my fingers crossed that this stays. It definitely helps me function throughout the day.

You love to be held. You enjoy tummy time and are quite strong.

Your nickname is squirmy because you love to kick and move your arms like crazy. I now know why I was kicked in the ribs so much! I think you will be moving a lot quicker, i.e. crawling, walking, talking. To me you seemed so advanced, but I am your mommy and think you are the best!

As your first Christmas approaches I am trying to convince your brother to go and sit on Santa's lap but he doesn't seem that into it. He's a bit scared of the man in red, so we shall see.

To both my boys....I can't imagine not having you in my life. I can't wait tell you are older so you can play together. To share memories that brothers will often create together. I love you both...More than air.
