Emma is 3 years old!

Today Emma is 3 years old! We can hardly believe our little baby girl is 3, but she is! She has had a wonderful birthday this year. We did a little Toy Story party on Dec. 18 with some of her friends and she really enjoyed it. Today we are at Grandpa and Grandma Smith's house and they had a little party for her with cake and ice cream.

She is a very funny girl, she loves to make silly faces and tell silly jokes. I love to watch her play and listen to her talk to her toys. She is so sweet and loving but also very smart.

She absolutely loves her baby brother and asks me every day if he is big enough to play with her. She is so affectionate, she loves to hold him and kiss him. When Nathan is on the floor she will lay down with him and talk to him.

When we return from our Christmas trip I am going to stop using diapers on Emma. She is ready to use the potty, she can and has worn panties all day and not had any accidents, but she still continues to choose diapers. So when we get back home, I'm putting up the diapers (except for night time) and we'll see how fast we can get her completely potty trained.

Emma still pronounces a few words incorrectly. She says "gurl" for "girl" and "hurs" for "horse". It's very cute and I know soon enough she'll drop all of these cute little inaccurate pronouncements.

Nathan is 3 months old!

Today Nathan is 3 months old! He weighs 15 pounds and two days ago he rolled over from his tummy to his back for the first time! The whole family was there to witness this first of Nathan's. He is really smiling and cooing a lot now. He holds his head up so well and enjoys looking at toys and watching Emma play. He has also found his hands and loves to suck on them. He sleeps pretty well at night, waking up to eat 2-3 times a night. He is growing so fast and he is such a happy baby. We love him so much and he is just precious to us!

Nate Update

Today I took Nathan to the doctor to receive an immunization shot. They were out of this shot at his two month appointment so we had to go back. Well the little guy is not so little, weighing in at 15 pounds, 2 ounces! It's no wonder that my shoulder and back are hurting so much these days from carrying him.

He is really smiling now and starting to stay awake for longer periods. I am afraid that he may have some reflux issues because he does crying after feedings sometimes and spits up quite a bit. We will go back to the doctor in late January for his 4 month checkup.

Nathan's Two Month Checkup

Today was Nathan's two month checkup. His weight is 13 pounds, 14 ounces, in the 80th percentile. His height is 22 inches, in the 10th percentile and head circumference is 39.5 cm, in the 10th percentile.

The doctor said that he looks good, he's very healthy and doing great. She said that he will probably catchup in the height and head circumference areas and not to worry about that, all babies grow differently.

He did receive several immunizations, one oral and two shots. He cried but recovered quickly, and just slept more through the day. He still has very dry skin so we are going to watch that closely and continue to use a very moisturizing cream on his skin.
