Just to Catch Up

Thought I would just take a moment to catch up on what’s being going on at our house.

Katherine is in LOVE with Bluey the blue fish. She loves to feed him (it’s a boy, but she says he is a girl), talk to him, and blows him kisses. We will see how long she is entertained by the fish, hopefully he sticks around awhile. She still loves her brother very much, but sometimes is not so excited about sharing lately! I see this becoming more of the trend.

She still gets excited in the morning that Colin is coming to “her” school. She says the cutest things all the time. In the car coming home from the race, she was trying to fall asleep, half awake she asked me if I could come back there and hold her, made me feel special. She told me the other day that winter was no longer fun and it needed to be spring, I told her I agree! When asked how old I was I, she said 5.. guess again Katherine.

She is very silly. Katherine’s favorite game to play is Robot Katherine, where she talks like a robot and turns you into a robot. The other night I came into the kitchen and she was on the barstool naked talking to Bluey and I asked her what she was doing, she simply said being naked. The other night Matt and I were watching TV; she came in, put her arms in the air, shushed us, then farted loud, laughed, then left.

Colin is doing a lot better with eating at school and at home. His appetite has really picked up a lot; hopefully he is going through a growth spurt. He is drinking more formula and baby food in a day than he ever has before. He has improved so much on solids too. He now will pick up cookie/cracker, put into his mouth, lick it, take a bite, CHEW, but then spits out about half. Two weeks ago he would just lick things! I think it has really helped him being around children his own age. Like I have said before it’s really hard to understand how to feed a baby who could care less about food. BUT WE HAVE COME A LONG WAY. Bottles used to be screaming fits and take 45 minutes then he would spit up half. NOW it takes 10 minutes, no crying, drinks the entire bottle, and doesn’t spit up. We decided to reduce his reflux medicine; he was on the max dose.

He stands up and holds onto everything he can. Can walk while holding onto an object, but still lacks the balanced needed to stand on his own. But I am not in a rush. He can crawl really fast, so that’s enough for us right now! Even his teachers commented on how fast he is! In school they are doing the “Your Baby Can Read” video series. He rolls his tongue like how in Spanish you roll R’s, it’s so cute, and I can’t even do it.
