Sleepy and Kiddo Updates

Yawn.
That explains my energy level these last few months. Could it be the youngins? :)

In other news, we've decided on a paint color for the kitchen. Now I just have to buy it and my mom is going to paint it for us for our anniversary (which we celebrated on Sept. 9th). Oh...guess you want to know the color... Thanks to Sarah's suggestion, we're going with Benjamin Moore's Hawthorne Yellow. Whoo hoo!

Benjamin had his 4mo well check up last week. He's gone down on the growth charts a tad but he's still a big boy! Weighing in at 15lbs and 25 inches long, he's 55th on both charts. His head is 75th. Hey...that's smaller than Hannah's 95th noggin! Benjamin continues to get quite the personality. He LOVES to laugh and I often hear him laughing to himself in his bed. Seriously, he laughs at just about anything. Our friend Ruth always said he's be a joker (after his start/stop labor drama)... maybe he will be!

Hannah's vocabulary is finally exploding. She is seriously saying SO many new words every single day. She's interested in repeating (or trying) everything we say. Of course that means we must really pay attention to our words and their uses even more. She's getting over another ear infection but the doc still wants to hold off on tubes at this point (and so do we!). She's also turning into a better eater. Though I'd still label her as picky...she's getting much better at trying new foods and at least abiding by the 1 bite rule (1 bite and then she doesn't have to eat any more of that food if she doesn't like it; she is required to taste it). OH and potty-training is going FABULOUS! I didn't know if I'd ever say that! She's more or less completely day-trained at home. Rarely do we have an accident. Now the real test is out in public. Baby steps here. She's only 27mo old... I'm not pushing it too fast.

Well... I guess that's the update for now. Until next time...
