Lillie and Elliott hit their 2 month mark on the 7th. I guess at this rate you can expect the monthly pictures to be about a week late. I did take the picture on the right date, its just finding a few minutes to get it from the camera to the computer to the blog.
They are really filling out. Newborn clothing is getting a little snug and they are comfortably fitting into their 0-3 month sizes. Great Gran is here right now helping us out and over the next month or so we'll have more help coming up. When people are here it makes me wonder how in the world I do it by myself when its just me and the three kiddos. As Gran says "its a 3-ring circus" around here. Very rarely is it quiet. Someone is always crying, needing a diaper change, hungry, wanting a snack, needing apple juice, wanting to "build something", wanting me to "sit right here", etc... I'm still getting about the same amount of sleep. I think we are finally making it to a 4 hour stretch from one feeding to another, its helpful but I'm still longing for them to make it a little longer.
Jack is full of personality. He loves to see what Lillie and Elliott are doing. He asks to feed them, but that really means hold them because he'll find a seat and hold out his hands. He thinks Elliott should be able to play like he does, "Elliott sit here, wanna racecar?" and he told Lillie she was pretty this morning "Lillie, pretty Lillie". He had his first baking experience with me a few days ago, we made chocolate chip cookies. He dropped the butter in and also helped me mix the dough. He also got to try chocolate chip cookie dough, I think he liked it.
Please keep praying for our perseverance to make it through these hard, early days. We are having fun, but we are tired. Pray for strength and energy and wisdom as we try to raise these little blessings. Enjoy the pictures.
