Happy 4th Birthday Alexander!

Happy Birthday to my little buddy! I can't believe 4 years have gone by.

Alex is a great little boy. Everyone loves him around here. He is pretty gentle most of the time. In fact, he was never really mean until Sophia arrived. He has finally started to test us a little and he has gotten more aggressive on the big boys. He gets tired of everyone telling him what to do. he loves school, Sophie, Nate, Legos, puzzles, games, Little Einsteins, candy, cheeseburgers, chocolate and especially his mom. He is so good to me. I really love Big Al.

Sophia is 6 months old!

My sweet little crybaby is 6 months old today. It has been a very action packed half a year around here for sure. My life most definitely feels full. Nothing is missing.

This month, Sophie has started eating baby food in addition to all the bread, tortillas, rice, Cheerios and other things she has been gumming for awhile! She chews like she has a mouthful of teeth, but really she just cut her first bottom right tooth today. The next one is almost through. She really likes squash, sweet potatoes, peas and bananas and is not the biggest fan of rice cereal. I wonder how she feels about all the cute blue bibs I put her in? She gets very excited while she eats--crazy girl!

Sophie continues to be very temperamental. She is so smiley and happy and then watch out! She has been saying ma, ma-ma and is beginning to wave as she says, "HHHHIIIIIII!". Everyone around here adores her. She has started to reach out to be picked up and is scooting all over the floor. She gets up with her booty in the air and rocks back and forth. She is very loud and is singing all the time. She loves to play with toys and her little dolly. She has figured out how to turn the music on in her crib and pulled herself up on the side rail a couple days ago. She loves to hangout with Alexander and lights up when Jake comes near her. We love this baby and we are so grateful to have her!
