So much to report!

  • I just noticed yesterday that one of Adon's molars has broken through his gums. I didn't even know it was coming in! He bumped his mouth and it bled. When I inspected it, I found a chomper in the back! However, he's missing a bunch of teeth between his front ones and that molar. :o)
  • Adon knows how to pretend. We've been saving empty Pringle's cans for VBS at church, and Adon loves playing with them. He took the lid off, stuck his hand in, pulled out a pretend chip, and munched away pretending to eat. He also offered pretend chips to everyone else, who also enjoyed munching on pretend chips!
  • Adon knows how to pick up his toys and books. He's become soooo helpful! He can take his shoes to his room and put them away, put dirty clothes in the laundry basket, bring blankets and pacifiers to me for Gabe, and he's learning more things every day.
  • Adon is down to nursing just twice a day, morning and bedtime. We've eliminated the afternoon/nap time feeding unintentionally, but the afternoons have just been too busy.
  • Adon learned so many new words while Aunt Donna was here. In the last couple of days, he's started saying, "Yes, ma'am" but it comes out like "ma ma". It's really cute!
  • Gabe has started to have some head control. He lifts it up and then it flops back down.
  • Gabe is eating every 3 hours, but at night he's been going 3.5 to 4 hours. One night, he even skipped a feeding and went almost 5 hours! I felt really good after that one.
  • Adon loves his "bubba" so much! He always has a hug and a kiss for him. He tries to put (shove) his paci in his mouth. He says "shh" when Gabe is sleeping or imitates my shushing to calm Gabe when he's fussing.
  • I'll report more as I think of it. I've started the post on Gabe's birth story, but have been too busy/tired/obsessed with Facebook to finish it.

Yay for a new post! :) I love seeing all the pictures of your new family on facebook. Its hard to sit down and write on a blog when you got 2 little ones running around. Glad things are going well and that Adon has adjusted to his new brother well.
