David 3 months

Hello big boy!
David has grown so much. I love it. I actually don't feel like he needs to slow down. Mostly because I feel like he was never quite a newborn, maybe cause he was different then Sienna. I felt like we skipped that stage so I don't really have a squishy cuddly newborn to miss.

*Weight: 12 pounds something... I forgot to really pay attention when he got weighed (10th percentile)
*Height: 23.75, 25th percentile 
Everyone thinks David is so big but those percentiles say otherwise. I think he seems big because he is so alert all the time and active and not to mention he has a pretty big noggin.
*David smiles all the time. You are so easy to make smile. We are getting into some little laughs.
* Started sitting in the bumbo and LOVES it.
* Still isn't the best napper
* Doesn't like a pacifier. I am convinced if he did he would nap better. I haven't give up yet on him
* Squirms almost out of his car seat if not buckled in.
* Loves to eat his hands. He tries his best to wiggle them out of his swaddle and into his mouth.
* Enjoys tummy time. He seems to be getting the idea of what it takes to roll over.
* Quite enjoys his bath. If he is frantic for what seems like no reason, we give him a bath
* CONSTIPATED. Poor boy. In a week he had only pooped once and it was small. He made up for it though when he exploded. We are talking thick poop all down one leg and all over his little bum. It was definitely a bath time blow out.
*Went on his first plane ride! He did so good. There was tons of turbulence but he never seemed to mind. And I sat next to a grandpa one flight and a grandma the next and they were so sweet and didn't mind a baby at all.
                                       Despite his expression, he really does love the bath! 

                                       He's pretty good at flashing a smile for the camera. 
Look at him hold that big noggin up.

 Loving the bumbo
 Went thru a phase for a couple of days where he pursed his lips a lot.
And another phase where he stuck out his tongue all the time.
We sure love this sweet boy. He is happy most of the time and makes us happy, 99% of the time. If he could just sleep more at night...

Miss Si Si

Just thought I'd do a little sienna update. I wish I was better at updating more singular events instead of  doing it all at once.

Sienna moved into a big girl bed about a week after David came. We thought she would have a hard time but she loved it! She did really well in the beginning with staying in her bed until we came in to get her... now a few months later, not so much. She no longer takes naps in her room because she will play the whole time and she often falls asleep at bedtime by the door with her pillow, blankets and stuffies.
She is speaking quite a bit more. She says some 2-3 word sentences like thank you, here you go, bye bye pup pup.
She loves anything she can eat with something like ketchup, ranch, and salsa. And she eats best when she is distracted. So breakfast is often eaten in the bath tub and lunch and dinner while watching peppa or playing with some toy.
She has become obsessed with peppa pig and could watch it all day and if we arent watching it she wants me to read her the books. mostly she just wants to watch it.
Sienna loves to play outside. We can not wait for the weather to warm up annd the wind to die down so we can be out there everyday. She likes to play in the snow the only problem is she hates wearing gloves and loves eating snow so her hands get cold very fast.

 Getting good use of the baby swing before David came
 I can't remember how her mattress and herself  ended up by the dresser... 
 She has become obsessed with bubbles and they disappear to fast when we fill up the whole tub so she has been bathing in davids baby tub.

On this instence Sienna had brought her bear into the bathroom with her but left him outside the tub. I went to go get David and came back to find sienna had snuck him ito the tub. She was so happy as every time she takes a bath she tries to bring in some stuffed animal.

 this girl is so busy. Some of the things that keep her busy for longest are playing with flour, beans, rice, water...anything messy. 
I love these to! Sienna is so good with David. She says hello to him in the morning, helps me rock his bed, brings me diapers for him and if he is crying she will show him her pup pup.

Hehe, cutie bum

 Cuddles with Dad.
 Matt told her to say cheese and this is the face she gave.

 Loving the Snow

Sometimes she likes to pretend she is a baby. She hasn't used a pacifier for over a year now but every once in awhile she grabs davids to play with.
She loves to play with my old make up. Also, she has worn that shirt for 4 days in a row, all because it has a pup pup on it. And I LOVE her hair in pig tails.

 Her bed head freaks him out.
 She is getting to the stage of wearing others shoes. She loves to wear my flip flops.
This girl has been showing some major love to her dad lately and it is so wonderful. They have so much fun together!

That time Sienna broke my finger.

Sienna broke my finger. Not really a phrase I ever thought I would say. I was exercising saturday mid morning. Sienna often likes to play with the 3lb weights when I exercise. She got one out and the first thing she did was lift it to her chest and give it a little toss. We told her not to throw them but to put them down softly. So she did... Until she didn't. I was in push up position and she was standing a foot or so in front of me. She brought the weight to her chest and let it fly. It hit my middle finger square on the nail and I heard a loud pop. It reminded me of the time in Jr. High in a game of killer spoons where Devin Johnson leapt and knelt on my finger causing my pinky fingernail to pop out from under neath my skin. Painful. I immediately checked to see that the nail was still in tact which it was which meant the pop was likely my bones breaking. Which it was.
I wish I has brought my phone or iPad with me to the e.r. Room so I could have a picture of the x-Ray. My middle finger bone really did look flatter then the rest and going up each side of the bone was a crack. So I don't have pieces of bone floating around but she pretty much broke my finger into 3 pieces. It feels much better now, a week later but I sure miss using my whole hand. Changing diapers, getting dressed, picking up and putting down a baby that can't support them self much is tough! But it does also help me realize how blessed I am to have the body I have. Most days it can do anything required of it with no problems. That is a miracle and a blessing. 

I have no clue why there is a dent. It was like that immediately once it happened. My thought is maybe some nerve damage or something? There is still a slight dent but now where the dent was is a little bruise. Weird stuff.

First day at the park in 2016

The weather has been pretty nice the last few days. The only down fall is the wind that has been accompaining it. Yesterday the morning was beautiful and sunny. We set out to walk to the park and as soon as we got there the wind picked up. So it was short lived but sienna loved every moment.
