Abby - She is rolling (over and covered in them)! She is sleeping through most nights, going down around 9:30 and waking up around 5:00 am. She is also nursing! After 4 months of pumping, she has finally decided that nursing isn't quite so bad. I haven't pumped in 2 days and I am totally excited about that! Abby is talking to us like crazy, she loves to coo and follow you with her eyes. She loves laughing and is a very content and relaxed third born. What a blessing! Abby is now rolling from her tummy to her back, she has also found her thumb and has decided that it taste's better than her passy.
Gabe - He is talking! He talks non stop these days. His favorite phrases are "And Me!" "I want to eat." and "Where's Goo!" He calls his brother Goo, isn't that cute! Gabe moved to a big boy bed last month, now he and Drew are in bunk beds in the big room that was once a loft (in our DINK days). Gabe just loves life, especially when he gets outside and in the pool! We've been visiting the pool a lot this past week, its very hot here and the boys were very timid around water the first trip to the pool. They are much better after 5 straight days of swimming! Gabe is excited to start gymnastics next week!
Drew - He is seeing! Yes, the poor child needed glasses for a very lazy right eye. He is seeing well now and we're hoping the glasses survive a week of soccer camp which starts tomorrow. Drew finished his pre-school year and is excited about playing all summer. He too will be in gymnastics beginning next week. We're so excited for all the summer fun! Drew and I are pushing through his reading culiculem, which is going much better now that the glasses are here. We're almost 50% of the way through. Drew is learning so much, he can now recognize basic words, knows about periods, quotation marks, can site read about 10 words and can sound out almost all 5 or less letter words. He loves to do his reading lessons and is getting much better writing our his letters. I'm so blessed to have a son who loves learning - that has always been my dream since the kids were born - I wasn't much concerned with their intelligence, I just wanted them to love learning. With a love to learn, anything is possible!
Daddy -He is Summer Breaking! Yep, tomorrow is his last day of work until August. I'm so excited to have him home more. His summer job will begin soon and he is taking a trip for work to Florida for 5 days in mid June. Over the last month, John has been finishing up the boys bunk beds and making me custom silverware holders. He still has plenty to keep him busy this summer!
