Christopher, Sophia and Madeline are really getting along nicely now, and its such fun watching them play together. We really miss Leif on these afternoons. Lately the weather has been nice enough to venture outside. We've been frequenting Ft. Smallwood Park after nap time and sometimes Granddad and Uncle Kevin join us. The kids are all very brave trying out the slide and swings. We've been visiting Bayside once a week, and Mom brings Sophia up to our house once a week. The kids (and adults) love the company.
Lilly is G-R-O-W-I-N-G! She still sleeps a ton. Her days are like this: wake at 8am for quick nursing and then back to sleep within 45 minutes. The rest of the day she sleeps 1-4 hours varying with only 45-60 minutes of awake time in between. Her bed time is at 7pm, along with Christopher, then I usually give her a twilight feeding before I turn in for the night. She then wakes briefly at 2 and 5 for quick nursing and then back to sleep! This is great, because I can get alot done and have plenty of time for Christopher. But on the other hand, I wish she could tolerate being awake more, so we could play with her. She has lots of social smiles and likes holding her head up and looking around the room. I am noticing her being more awake, even if its just by little bits. Christopher loves getting her toys and playing with her. He also bounces her chair to help soothe her. She is still very interesting to him. I had her weighed three weeks ago, and she was 11lbs, 4oz. We have her 2 month checkup on Friday. I can't wait to see her new numbers. She is still spitting up so much, but that doesn't seem to bother her, just makes alot of laundry for Mama.
Our house has been on the market now for two weeks. We've had two showings, but no serious buyers. It is a little challenging keeping the house "show ready" with little ones around, but I am doing it! Each time we leave for Bayside, I have to have the house perfect just in case someone wants to see it while we are out. It makes it tough to get out the door before 10:30! Meanwhile Ryan is keeping himself very busy with our new house plans. These are very busy and exciting times for us.
