Haddon 2.5

I can't believe this kid is nearly two and a half!  He has taught me so much in his young little life about life and what is important and my own faith.  He can be a challenging little two year old but he is also the sweetest, most affectionate little boy full of hugs and kisses and sweetness.  Here are some things I want to remember about Haddon at this age...

He loves trucks, trains, cars and all things with wheels.  If a car is parked he wants to know why it isn't going and he creates "garages" all over the house to park his cars in.

He is particular like his daddy.  If his pillows are not the right way, he fixes them.  If the books are backwards on the bookshelf, he fixes them.  If there are crumbs on the floor or on his highchair tray, he cleans them and he does not like to have messy hands!  I sure do hope this trait lasts into his teen years :)

He must give me a kiss on the cheek every night before bed. He insists upon it!

He loves his sisters!  He wants to do everything his big sister does and tries to tackle her all day long, though I'm not so sure she sees that as loving :)  He loves his baby Vera too and is getting good and saying her name.  He loves to lay next to her, bring her toys and lay on top of her, though again, I'm not so sure she sees that as a loving gesture. Ha.

Every time I pick him up from the nursery after church he runs into my arms with the biggest smile as if we haven't seen each other for weeks and I definitely don't want to forget that!

Vera: 4 Months

This beautiful little lady is 4 months old!!  I don't know if it's my perspective or if she is the best baby ever (probably a combination of both), but she is SO easy  She is happy and content nearly all the time, loves her siblings, and gives loads of sweet smiles every day.  If I could make her stay this age forever I think I probably would.

Like all my children she started waking up in the middle of the night again right when she turned 4 months, but we are back to sleeping until 4-6 in the morning again, which is amazing!  During the day she eats on a 3 hour schedule and is an eating champ other than the fact that she is getting very distractible.

We visited the doctor last week and she is perfect as can be.  The doctor also did not hear a heart murmur anymore!!  We won't know for sure until we visit the cardiologist, but the hole in her heart and likely very small or completely gone now.
