Abby @ 13 Weeks

Abby was 13 weeks old on Thursday, she weighed in at 10 pounds, 10oz. She has been eating a ton and gaining weight. I can't wait for her to sleep through the night! She will have a night or two only waking once, then three or so nights where she wakes up every 2-3 hours. She is still fussy in the evenings, but seems very happy when we get out of the house. Abby loves noise, she loves to be sung to and also loves to snuggle in the front pack. We dedicated her at church today, she was perfect - sleeping through the whole thing in mommy's arms.

Here are some fun things the boys have been saying lately:

Drew calls his Tkids binder his "finder" because it helps him find things.
Drew calls his tank top a "tater tot."
Drew says when he becomes a man he will marry a girl and they will have 4 babies, they are called "tubelets."
When Drew grows up he wants to sing and teach children. He said a music teacher might be nice!

Gabe now loves to talk to himself and is finally starting to speak! He loves to share his "thoughts" with you, like telling "green light", "red light," "Mommy's food" and "Daddy's feet!"

In the car yesterday Drew tells Gabe" Mommy. It is only me that his spending the night at Nana's." To which Gabe repeats, "Me", Drew then says, "No me!" That went on for 4 minutes at Drew explained that it was only him and Gabe repeated, "Me" and "OH" So cute!

We're learning about metamorphasis and studying life cycles of frogs and caterpillars. The boys are loving it! Drew is reading very well, we're 1/3 of the way through our reading curriculum. He can read up to three sentences and is able to answer questions about what he just read. Gabe is into puzzles and learning his colors and shapes. Their imagination is running wild, just this evenings Drew built a house using bricks, glue, wood, tape, and a strawberry container. He spent two hours making it and using his critical thinking skills to come up with ideas and spent a lot of time with trial and error. I had a blast watching him while Abby sat in the front pack and  "helped" me garden. Gabe enjoyed riding his little motorcycle and walking up the "front steps" of the house. Such fun Spring Days!
