Me and my babes!
Jack is getting big enough to play in his saucer, which is so much fun to watch!
Big Sister is going to be 5 soon and is full of so much love. She is a very emotional almost 5 year old, and it scares the hell out of me. I can't even imagine a 12 year old Alana. We are in for a ride, that's for sure! She "graduates" preschool at the end of June and starts Kindergarten shortly after that! My baby is going to Kindergarten. That is madness! She took a Kinder assessment and passed with flying colors. She knows so much and is starting to be able to read words. Her little brain is soaking up so much! It's exciting to see her learn so much.
My baby guy is so full of smiles, but sometimes can be so hard to capture on camera. The second he see's the camera or phone, he stops smiling. I swear that's always the case right? Any second time parents out there will understand this issue I am having.... When Alana was born I was anti Pacifier, because I HATE that three year with one stuck in their mouth. You can't understand what they are saying, you can't see them smile. Take the damn pacifier out of their mouth! Alana ended up sucking her thumb because of it! ... Well damn. That's not what I wanted either. I can't take away her thumb like I can a pacifier. BUT at least she ONLY is allowed to do it in her bed at night and not while we are out at the grocery store or out to dinner. I am pretty strict about it too. Again, I hate to see those kids out in public in the middle of the day with their thumb stuck in their mouth! SO... being a second time mom, I told myself I was going to give Jack a pacifier so at some point we could be done with it. Not to mention with all of his crazy crying when he was born, it's the only way I could get him to be quite for a while. I tried and tried to give that stupid pacifier to him since the day he was born. I tried two different kinds. The kid would keep spitting it out. He was just not going to be a pacifier kid either! So he also found his thumb.... Hopefully I will be able to control that thumb sucking like we have been able to with Alana. But he loves his thumb!
My little fat man does not want to roll over yet. He is almost there and wants to, but I'm pretty sure the size of those legs and the rolls on them are preventing him from actually rolling! Soon enough I will have a little rollie pollie on my hands like I did with Alana!
This picture makes me smile because no matter what is going on, the second Alana starts to talk, he looks around for her and all of his attention is on her. He smiles at her and melts my heart. He loves his big sister!
Here is my fat boy with no clothes on! I LOVE the rolls! I will be sad when he grows out of them like Alana did. He is a healthy boy, that's for sure!
