Life here has been very busy with three little ones, one of which is a newborn. Just wanted to give you an update of all that is going on with us. I’m sitting here and all the kids are occupied. I get on the computer while I’m nursing so I don’t usually get to type. I can load pictures with one hand but I can’t type very well!!
Karter – We’ll start with the one that is getting the most attention lately. He is still waking up every 2-3 hours to eat!! I’m waiting for him to space his nighttime feedings and am hoping it will happen soon. He was 3 1/2 weeks early, so he is almost 2 weeks past his original due date!! I may have a few more weeks before his sleep evens out. He is healthy and getting bigger by the day. He has a very loud, cry (scream) and lets us know when he is hungry or needs a diaper change.
Isabelle – She is already wearing 3T. She is just so tall!! 2T shirts and pants are just too short. With the 3T I have to pull in the elastic on the pants to fit around her waist, but she needs the length. She loves her baby brother, loves to poke him, rub his head, and is always asking to hold him. Loves her ABCs!! Jakob and I have been working on his letters and sounds this summer and she loves to sing her ABCs and go through the flashcards and letter games. I think she is ready to start potty training, but I AM NOT. Hopefully in the next few months we can start working on it. She is talking, a lot.
Some of the things she is saying:
I’m excited to get on a schedule, back on some kind of routine. I hope that when Karter starts sleeping and Jakob starts school we will have some sort of daily routine to follow.
I can’t wait to buy school supplies. I want to get my self a bunch of sharpened #2 pencils and my favorite pens and have them sitting on my desk. So inspiring.
I’m excited to start exercising! I’ve been trying to walk, but haven’t figured out how to do it consistantly without a schedule. I have to lose this pregnancy weight! Being on bedrest for 3 months did not help me keep my weight down. Time to get moving!!
I’m excited for the trips we have planned that are coming up soon.
I’m excited to get a new bike. It will be an early birthday present from Steve.
