Mo', Mo' Peas

Here is another update. I've become really bad at blogging lately... Anyway...

First up - Nicholas. Today, he turns 2 months old. I should probably make sure I take a picture of him today. It's amazing how fast time goes by and he's already 2 months old! He's cooing more and doing a little bit of babbling to the cow and pig hanging from his rocker chair. He smiles and talks to them - it's really adorable and something I hope to get caught on tape soon. He smiles at us too. His hair looks like it is going to be red. So right now, I have a blond haired girl, a brown haired boy and a red haired boy.

As far as sleeping, he can have nights where he sleeps up to 5 hours after we first go to bed then come back to 3 hours the next night. He is doing better at sleeping in his own bed. Something that I'm working on during the day is to get him to take naps in his own bed instead of in my arms or in the swing or rocker chair. The first time I put him in there, he was having none of it. The next time, he slept there for 45 minutes until I woke him up with the sound of the breast pump.

Then Benjamin - his latest words are more and teacher and he said please a few times. His more sounds like "mo'" and his please sounds like "peas", but he's saying the words! His favorite words are more and no. Oh, and he has said walk and rock and duck. We went shopping this morning to get him new shoes - he's already wearing a size 7. I feel like I just bought the other shoes! Kids grow up quickly. He's wearing a 3T shirt and pants are usually a 2T, but he seems to be moving into 3T soon - some 2T ones are getting too short.

And, last, but not least, Ella. She is saying more and more words like "more" and "I see" but her favorite words are still "kitty" and "baby". She understands far more words than I hear her say. She has tried to be the little mommy by giving Nicholas the pacifier, but she can be a little too aggressive with that. She will force the pacifier on him if given the chance. Nicholas doesn't like that too much.

Both Ben & Ella are pretty good sleepers (knock on wood). Lately, they've been sleeping from around 8:30 to about 7:30-8 in the morning and taking one nap during the day. They go to daycare for a few hours each day though I'm thinking of keeping them with me one day this week to take them to a playgroup at our church. We'll see how that goes. I've been taking them on my own to daycare and picking them up, but I haven't gone anywhere else on my own with all 3. Jon is braver than I am and will walk to the park with all 3 while I stay home to pump or whatever. Or sometimes I'll go with them and put Nicholas in the Bjorn.

That's about it for now. I need to go do some cleaning before Ben & Ella get up from their nap and Jon goes out with some friends this evening.
