As usual as can be with 3 boys! Life has continued since Jason went back to work over a month ago. There are some days I wonder if I will make it through. I look forward to the weekends even more now.
Nate is doing fine! He is just talking like crazy! I talked with my Grandpa the other day and he asked if Nate was talking and of course I said yes and then I realized what he was getting at. Does he talk alot like me! I told Grandpa, yes!! My Grandpa likes to tease me about my chatter. I do like to talk! Nate is into Mighty Monster Trucks at the moment. He likes Meteor, Junk Boy, Little Tow and Big Foot. I wonder what he will like after this. Will he go back to Thomas or Bob the Builder again? What about tractors? He seems to jump back and forth with what he likes. One thing that never changes is that he loves to be outside. The other day, he wanted to go outside so bad and I kept telling him that it was too cold. He still insisted on going out. So, I opened up the front door and had him step out onto the front porch in his jammies. I asked him if it was too cold and of course, he said No! When he gets something in his brain, he won't let it go. Mmmm, wonder where he gets that from?!! Thankfully we had a couple of nice warm days so we made sure we got outside to play. He loves when the neighbor boys are out too. Lots of boys to play with!
Riley and Jon are doing fine. Growing like crazy. They are making lots of eye contact now and are focusing more on things like our faces which is pretty cool. I have gotten a small smile out of both of them but I am waiting for them to crack big smiles!
Jonathan is my sleeper. I can always count on him taking good naps. Other news for him: Since he was breech, we need to keep an eye out on his hips. The second of Feb we had an ultrasound done on his hips to see if there was any concern. His right hip looks fine but his left hip is off a bit. We now have a pediatric orthapedist on our list of dr's. Dr Anderson saw Jon last Thurs. Dr did say that Jon's left hip is loose. We don't need to do anything in the way of braces right now. We are going to have another ultrasound done the 19th of March and then see Dr Anderson right after. Dr said that his hip could take care of itself and if thats the case, then no braces are needed. We will see what time will do between now and the 19th. Dr Anderson was wonderful!
Riley is my eater! When he nurses, he's all business. He is also a mamas boy. He loves to be held. Good thing I have a sling to put him in! He has red hair and it sticks up! Cracks me up! He gets lots of comments on it. He has battled 2 colds so far, poor thing. He has had to sleep in the bouncy seat so he could breath. Just last night I put him in the crib to sleep. He is also starting to coo. It is so fun to watch him. He can really get into it!
Both of their personalities are starting to emerge. Jonathan is more laid back and Riley is a mover and shaker. All 3 of my boys are going to do great things when they grow up :)
The twins had their first long car ride a few weeks ago. I took all 3 boys up to my folks in Springfield, Il. The babies slept the entire 1 1/2 hours. Nate just chilled out in the back seat. My parents were excited that we were coming to visit. They can't get enough of the grandbabies. We took some time and went to visit my sister-in-law and her boys. My brother was on his way home from Chicago so we didn't get to see him. Nate had a great time playing with his cousins. Tiffani got her baby fix with the boys. It was so much fun watching Nate play with his cousins. They are a hilarious bunch!
Jason celebrated his birthday the 21st of Feb. We went to lunch at TGIFridays. First restaurant outing for the twins. They did great! After that we chilled at home. Jason opened his gifts. He got new memory for the computer, some things for game nite, and a book. He also got to have breakfast in bed. I made biscuits and gravy for the first time. He was happy with that! Nate woke up and gave him a balloon. Nate and I were sneaky and hid the balloon in Nates closet so daddy wouldn't know. Nate did a good job keeping the secret! That night, we went to Americas Incredible Pizza Company with tickets and such that I won at our trivia night at church in Jan. We took our good friends Ben and Laura and their son Logan. Everyone ate for free and played for free. It has pizza and games. Think Chuckee Cheese but bigger and better.
I tried looking for photos of the twins so I could update you all but I cant find the new ones Jason just took a while ago. Here is a link to his blog since he seems to have the photos. Photo hog!
Enjoy your Sunday!
