Felt like maybe I should do an update on the kiddos to share with you all. Plus this allows me to keep a record for me to come back to time and time again to just oogle over all these memories. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone back to look at all the fun things Ab has done and it is a great reference of what I should be expecting with Jack.
Can you believe that little girl is going to preschool this year? This hasn’t sunk in yet, truly I still think of her as a baby sometimes and catch myself doing things for her that she is more-than-capable in doing for herself. It just amazes me that George and I created such a smart, funny, witty, and absolutely cray-cray little girl. If you couldn’t tell from this photo, Ab LOVES her baby brother. She is so great with him and truly has the patience required of a big sister, such an important role. She is imaginative and loves to play! She is super into sidewalk chalk, swinging and playing on her swing set, reading herself books, playing babies, watching movies (Toy Story 1,2,3 are new favorites) and then acting out scenes from said movies. Her eating habits are all still fantastic when we can get her to actually sit down to eat. This girl can seriously chow down on fruits of our labor (tomato and cucumber) directly out of the garden but is still so ready to lick some icing off any cookie or cake in her reach. I know this is my kid but damn, she is COOL.
This little man is 5 months old (sorry Kat, I can’t find the damn stickers) and chock full of personality. He is sweet and lovey and is so into his momma, such a good boy. He gives hugs, he pulls your hair (Poppa Herron can vouch for this as Jack has pulled his chest hair many times) and he JUMPS! Jack is extremely entertaining in his Johnny Jump-Up and can get that thing going so much that you hear it and feel it in our bedroom upstairs. He is amused by his Abbey-girl and can watch her run, jump and play for long periods of time. At 5 months, Jack is enjoying his oatmeal baby cereal and Beppy (sitter) has discovered that he LOVES his pears and strongly dislikes his prunes. I plan to introduce more vegetables this month. He has rolled over a few times and then decided (I guess…) that he doesn’t want to do it anymore, however, he loves to sit up from his propped up position on the boppy. We are in trouble, I predict he will be crawling in just a few short months! Is it possible to skip rolling over and crawling and going straight to standing and walking? He might do that actually because he loves to use his strong little legs.
Whew, lots of things going on, could I be a more blessed momma? I think not!
