I love my kids!




Jacob is four years old and is a great kid! He is really good at helping me with anything I ask him. Most mornings he gets up and gets himself dressed and makes his bed. He is very proud that he helps me do the laundry and I tell him he is the best four year old at folding spit rags.(Madeline spits a lot and we go through a lot of spit rags!) Jacob loves to watch Super Why on PBS and play computer games on the PBS website. He enjoys connect the dots and mazes and learning to spell words. His favorite thing to do is to play with a friend. Jacob is really good to David and Madeline, I am so glad Jacob is in our family, he is a great boy!



David will be two in May. He is learning to talk and we are really excited for him to start talking a bit more. He likes to say the word helicopter and says it pretty well. David loves all balls and is really good at throwing and catching a ball. Last night he was in our room with a football and tossed the ball from side to side twice while grunting and then threw it, it was as if he was running a play and waiting for the receiver to be open. David loves dad, he likes to wave to dad every morning as he leaves for school and is always excited to see him come home. David loves Madeline’s soothie and is starting to learn to give it to her instead of take it away from her! We love David tons!


Often at night when the boys are in bed I hear Jacob say, "I love you David" and then David mumbles something that is supposed to be, "I love you Jacob" I am glad they are buds!



Madeline will be eight weeks on Thursday, she is a great baby, especially last night when she slept for eight and a half hours! She likes to talk, and make eye contact. She is a patient baby which I am thankful for because it helps make my life easier. She is a strong baby and likes to stand while supported, she has great control of her head. We are glad to have Madeline in our family!

Cute kids! Ya, I need to know who took those pictures, after out baby comes I'll need to get some done too.

The pictures were taken at Sears. We always go to Sears for pictures because they have sales and coupons so it is affordable and we have been pleased with the pictures. I wish I could take pictures that well! Liz, I hope your baby comes soon.

Oh, your kids are so adorable. That is so fun. I will have to try Sears. I have tried JCPenny a few times and have not liked them either time. So that I will try. Kids are so precious, aren't we blessed?
