Happy New Year!

Wednesday, January 13th, 2010

I don’t know about everyone else but we enjoyed our holiday season, however, we are thrilled that it is over. All of the running, buying, wrapping and receiving gifts is exhausting. It turns out that IC had strep over the holiday and no one even knew it. We wouldn’t have found out except for an unexplained rash that prompted a visit to the doctor last week. Other than the rash everyone is in good spirits and as always we are more blessed than we deserve. IC weighs 24lb with clothes on now. He has gained about 3 lbs since June. That is good news. Toilet training, however, is another story. He is finally able to use the toilet without panicing but he still refuses to tell us when he has to go. In fact, when left naked he will surprise himself when he begins to go.

OD is now 5! It is very hard to believe that he is so big now. He has grown 3 inches since last year and now weighs 35 lbs. He is a great big brother to the other two (most of the time). He is also starting to read fairly well. He is all ready for Kindergarten in the fall.

EP is getting bigger every day. He hates tummy time and is consequently lagging behind in his arm and back muscles. He loves to hold his head up and see what is going on and he also loves to snuggle. OD was rolling over by this age (12 weeks) and swimming on his tummy but each child is different. We are just going to have to be careful that he does not fall behind on his development.

In mid-December EP was 2months old and weighed 10lbs. He was also 22 inces long. He has since slowed a little in his growth but we are excited to see how much he has grown next month when he is 4 months.

The weather has been so cold lately we are wishing for spring to come soon.
