I am so in love with this sweet baby's big blue eyes! I wonder if they will stay blue like Oliver's or turn green like the rest of ours.
We feel so blessed to be parents to all three of our sweet kids!
On another note our Cora girl is 2 weeks old today! She had her well check and it doing great! She weighs a whopping 6 LBS 4 ounces! She is still 19.5 inches tall, at two weeks of age she is officially our smallest baby, but only by an ounce. She is doing really well and has her nights and days figured out for the most part. She has awake periods in the morning and evening for a good 3-4, sometimes 5 hours, but I don't mind if that means she only gets up to eat in the night and goes right back to sleep.
We still haven't gone anywhere with all the kids so as far as adjusting to life with 3 kids its been super easy because we just stay home and hang out. In a way the winter is a nice time to have a baby because it forces you to stay home and take life a little slower, it gives me a chance to just sit on the couch and cuddle with my babies without feeling guilty.
Oliver loves his cars! He will spend hours making lines and l arking lots. Some of his favorite cars were kreg's wen he was little. Since becoming a big brother Oliver has been especially sweet to his sisters. He has only shown a little bit I have a transition to having a sister. He is testing us with his listening and saying no to us more often. But overall he has adjusted very well. He loves to stay home but misses his friends. it is nice that Cora takes a lot of naps so Oliver and I still have a lot of 1 on 1 time together while cc is at school.
So happy to have Grandma Wagner here visiting! Mark and Mallory came to meet Cora too! We are loving all our visitors!
Cecily was so excited to have her half birthday the day after Cora was born. A few things about CC right now.
~She loves school and all that it entails, she has made many great friends and loves her teacher Mrs. Bond. She is doing really well in all her subjects at school. She is a perfectionist so she tends to resist new things she is learning, everyday when she brings out her homework she whines and says "its going to be hard!" Then does it in five minuets and says "that was easy peasy lemon squeasy" I asked her why she says it every time (it gets a little old, convincing her to do her homework each day) She said its because she's worried she wont do it right the first time. That explains her to a T. She puts so much pressure on herself to do everything perfect the first time. we have lots of talks about practice makes perfect and we have to learn new things to be able to do them. She is a great reader and I love having her read to me each morning while I get ready!
~She is taking gymnastics and doing really well at that. She is getting really strong and can do handstand pushups against the wall. She loves gymnastics and would go everyday if she could!
~She is such a great helper and so responsible, I have to catch myself from asking her to help me to often, I have to beg her to play with her toys. She is so mature and adult like for her age, I often forget how little she really is. I don't want her to look back at her child hood and only remember being a little mommy. How do you convince a kid to just be a kid?
~She is so sweet and caring, like I said she is beyond her years so she worries about things and people unlike any 5 yr old I know. She and I are so similar it crazy. She is just like me now as an adult. Not so much like I was as a child.
~She loves to be outside riding her bike or scooter when the weather permits, she still loves swimming and doing art. She loves to play any pretend play games like being Mommy with her dolls, restaurant, etc.
~She is so fun and happy, testing her limits with Kreg and I, trying to get away with as much attitude as she can. Hopefully this stage will blow over quickly.
~We just love our CC girl and all the spunk and joy she brings to our home! We love watching her learn and grow and perform all her new talents! We feel very blessed to have three great children!
