Kr8zY eIgHtS^2

I really can’t complain about anything in my life right now. I have three amazing kids. They all nap well, sleep at night, play well together, eat pretty good, and are overall just happy kids.

Everyday I remember things that Collin was doing and how much fun he was becoming each day. I have that fun feeling all over again with Justin and Lana. They are learning and doing so much it’s bittersweet how fast it is going.

  • The very next day after I posted that neither Justin nor Lana had any teeth, BAM just like that Justin has one. A Couple days later he has two on the bottom. A week or so later he’s got one on the top and now the second one on top has just broken though. Four. Justin has four teeth. Lana on the other hand… none.


  • Crawling. Crawling. Crawling. Justin gave up on the paralyzed legs army crawl he was doing and realized he’s much faster if he really crawls. Just a day or so later Lana really started moving too. Both of are fast little boogers. I can leave them in the living room to throw diapers away and come back and hunt them down.
  • Pulling up on anything and everything. I have to keep the downstairs gate closed again because they started pulling up on it and have been trying to kick their legs up on things to climb. Justin has made it into the dishwasher and onto the couch (with the cushion missing) I haven’t actually seen him do it, but I turn around and BAM here he is with a big smile on his face. They are also figuring out the stairs. It’s all happening so fast!!


  • Starting to cruise
  • Both are wearing 9 month clothes and a few 12 month pieces.
  • Sleeping so well! They usually go to bed about 8:00, some days 7:30, some days 8:30. Usually up about 6:30 or 7:00 and take a morning nap somewhere between 9:00 and 10:00 for an hour or two. I’m trying to keep it closer to one hour (I know I’m crazy) because they only sleep for an hour in the afternoon… while Collin takes a two plus hour nap. I’d love to have two hours to myself in the afternoon.
  • They nurse 5-7 times a day
  • Had their first Easter – and looked so stinkin’ cute



  • Eat like they are starving children, which obviously is not the case. I can’t even list the things they eat now. While they both like to pick things up and eat on their own, Justin prefers it a little more than Lana does. I’m pretty sure both could survive on yogurt alone.
    • The faces Lana makes during dinner, really are priceless…


  • They are starting to enjoy the park and being outside more

  • They are starting to “talk” more, but I still, try as I might, can’t get them to say Mama or Dada. The closest I get to any actual words are the occasional “heeeeeey” when I walk into their room and they are standing up in their beds.

  • I think they are beginning to understand kisses. But I can’t ask for a kiss on demand and get on all the time.
  • Started taking baths in the BIG bathtub… we basically bipassed the ducky tub. It’s much more efficient to have two -or three- in the tub all at the same time.
