Luke is 3!

What a day it is!  We've been celebrating the last 2 weekends - parties, Monster Truck Jam, cupcakes, ice cream- that today has finally arrived.  We sang happy birthday this morning to him with his cupcake & candles.  He's a sweet, sweet boy.  I can remember all those feelings of anticipation - not knowing if he's a boy or girl, healthy, everything.  I couldn't believe it was really (and finally!) happening!

Now he's here and he just makes everything better.  And it's like he's always been here. He really was meant to be and is our Dream Weaver come true :)

Don't want to forget Friday!

It's our last Friday as Luke as a 2 year old!  He turns 3 next Wednesday.   Blows me away.
He had gone through a rough patch at night, but seems to be getting better and back to his sweet ways.  He still does not like 'to get ready' in the morning - he wants to just stay home.  Even if we are going somewhere fun. 

Last weekend we had his birthday party at Grandma Fellure's with the other January and February birthdays.  He loves to sing Happy Birthday!  And he loves to eat just icing off of the cupcakes.

The girls are as sweet as can be. Vivian is a fast crawler and goes all over the house.  Riley is content to just sit there, crawl a bit, and then keep playing.  I do notice they are getting a little more aggressive with each other when they are playing- banging the toy on the other sister, taking it away, climbing on each other.  Usually one ends up in tears but nothing too bad yet. 

I catch Vivian doing the 'tri-pod' - a crawl/walk thing that Luke used to do right before he started walking.  That makes me nervous! But very excited at the same time.  I try to get them to stand and cruise along the couch, but their little legs/feet just aren't ready.  But when one of them sees the other 'standing' they get a big smile on their face and act so proud of them.  It's really sweet.

Luke is going to the monster truck jam tomorrow with Daddy and Sunday we are having the Weavers over for his birthday.  It's been a long month of celebrations and it's still not even his birthday yet!   He's majorly into cars, guns, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, puzzles....and trying to go on the potty.  He will do both on it, just not consistently.  Looking forward to the day he's out of diapers!!

But he does the sweetest 'I love you, Mommy' and 'I want you to snuggle with me' and he's really good about 'hey sister, do you want me to feed you?  Do you want to play? '  His little voice is so darn sweet.

Christmas 2014

Happy New Year!!

What an exciting year 2014 was and looking forward to see what 2015 has in store for us!  Thankful for all the blessings.  I still can't believe I was pregnant a year ago with twins and didn't know what to expect. And to know they made it here, full-term, safely, and they are girls still leaves me giddy.  My cup runneth over.  And to watch Luke grow up into such a sweet, loving boy - it's amazing. 

The girls turned 9 months old on New Year's Eve.   Backward crawling, playing with toys, sitting and rolling around.  Oh, the life of a baby.  Such happy girls- always wake up with a smile on their faces. 

Had their check up yesterday - here are the stats:

Riley -  weight: 19 lbs 8 oz  - 53%
            length:  27 3/4 - 54%
             head:  43.7 cm  - 39%

Vivian- weight: 19.35 lbs - 58%
              length: 28 inc- 62%
              head:  43.3 cm- 28 %

Little peanut heads!  4 bottles of 7 oz and an occasional meal, but I need to increase that.  They are still great sleepers.  7:30 ish is bed time and don't wake up until 6:45ish. 

Both of them have their 2 bottom teeth and 2 top teeth and working on some more.  Feel like Vivian might be the one who gets in a little trouble.  She's more mobile and seems up for anything.  Riley is a little more cautious and a little more sensitive around people.  Has the saddest sad face if she's sitting there and you walk away.  

They had a great first Christmas - didn't know what was going on but seemed to enjoy it!!  Actually we all had such a wonderful Christmas (except for Daddy who was super busy moving his company's office!) Weaver peanut butter ball making on Christmas Eve morning, Christmas Eve at my parents',  Christmas Day at my Grandma's,  day after Christmas @ the zoo with the Weavers, and Weaver Christmas Saturday the 27th!!  Man, it was exciting and fun celebrating with all the cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents.

Luke is AWESOME still with them and he's becoming quite the encourager and cheerleader:  "Mom, sister is crawling!!  Go sister!!! "   "Come here, sister!!  You wanna play??"   It's so sweet!!   He had a rough November, crankiness, not sleeping well, but he seems to be back on track.  He's so excited for his 3rd birthday!! He wants M&M's, cupcakes, and dinosaurs.  Pretty easy.
