I wasn't sure where to begin with this blog--or what to even name this entry. After today, I knew exactly what I was going to name it. Again, it has taken me a week and a half to get another entry on. It seems as though that is how this may go---some things I just can't keep up on. This is one of them, obviously.
Lots has happened since the last entry--I will just go chronologically.
I wanted to mention, on February 25th my sister-in-law's cousin died. He was 27. He died from Wilson's Disease. I never knew him, but from what Aunt Kim has told me about him, and what I have read about him, he was an amazing man. To quote Aunt Kim--"Mike will be the most beautiful angel in Heaven..." We are praying for you Aunt Kim, and your whole family too. To learn more about Wilson's Disease, click here http://www.wilsonsdisease.org/. Here is a picture of Mike. Rest in Peace. Last week was a big milestone week for LM. He graduated to using only a sipee cup--like a trooper. He (on accident) went to eating just 3 meals (solids and formula), and skipping the bedtime "bottle". His schedule got off one night, and he just skipped it. He hasn't wanted it since. Yay! I don't have to change crib sheets every day now!! Over the weekend, we had some friends over for a pizza party, and while the kids were playing, and adults were chatting, LM decided he would walk behind a moving toy across the room. My friend and I stopped talking, and I was in awe. I couldn't believe it. She said..."you know, he will be walking in about a month, don't you..." Yes, I am aware. Great. Thanks. LM also cut three teeth in two days. Now that is a record!! The first two teeth he got are on top--not the ones right in front, but the two next to those. I know it has to be uncommon...I have never seen a kid get those teeth first. The next day, a little tooth on the bottom cut through. Since the teeth started coming through, he has been sleeping ALL the time. In the morning, he will take about a 4 hour nap, and in the afternoon about a 3 hour nap. Nice. Can't get enough of that! :-) I think that is all for milestones for now...
Here we are sleeping in on our lazy Saturday morning...I love that he is such a loverboy--he loves to snuggle...
Sunday, we all piled in and went to church. Bug got to wear her new dress that Grandma Kris gave her for Christmas. For the first time ever, she voluntarily went to the nursery (playroom) during church. I am such a freak--I missed her! I just wonder how I will be when it is time for kindergarten. I will be THAT Mom crying as she takes her baby to school. I am already dreading pre-school. Here is Bug in her dress after church:
Here is another dress, that I couldn't resist from Target. I think this will be her Easter dress. It really isn't as long as it looks in this picture...she isn't exactly standing straight up. Blue looks so good on her...(Can you tell I love to dress her up??)
Bug insisted she wanted to get Daddy a ball for his birthday...(I am sure she was quite fond of the ball too....!)
