The Kids

February 7, 2011

All About Ainsley

  • No more diapers.
  • Lots of imagination.
  • About 27-28 pounds.
  • Reading (she has memorized a couple books, and “reads” others as best as she remembers them).
  • Memorized about 4 Bible verses (a lot of thanks to Steve Green and his fabulous memory verse music).
  • Loves playing with Thaddeus, and sitting on him.
  • Has started playing dress up. Such a girl.
  • Occasionally calls Daddy by his real name.
  • Likes to help Mama in the kitchen — dishes, cooking, baking, meal planning. She has come up with a few delicious soups. She always remembers the garlic. Gotta love that.

All About Thaddeus

  • Sits up. Tumbles over mostly on purpose.
  • Pushes up on hands and knees, or hands and feet. Very yoga-like.
  • No teeth, but also little “teething” crabbiness. So we’ll take that.
  • 20 pounds, almost 30 inches. Ginormous.
  • Mostly bald.
  • Soft and squishy. His skin has an especially smooshy appeal after he wakes up. Cannot keep my lips off those darn cheeks.
  • Squealy. Shrieky. Spitty.
  • Loves playing with Ainsley. And even loves getting sat on by Ainsley.
  • Likes smacking stuff and making noise. Such a boy.

After a couple weeks of cold-swapping between the kids, we appear to be back in health around here. It seems like it will never change when you’re in the midst of colds. Like the kids will always be drippy, coughing, generally un-well. Then one day you realize you didn’t wipe up any noses all day. Then you sigh, “Thank goodness and good riddance.”

And now, what you’re here for. The kids.

    Love it!!! Isn’t it crazy that they are only 7 or 8 pounds apart? I can’t wait to see Thaddeus next month (and you of course). I guess I’ll have to wait to see Ainsley (and Scott) in June. 😦
