shark tooth

Elliott lost his first tooth on Dec 1st, 2013 (bottom picture), and the second has been loose since Thanksgiving or longer!  Hanging on by a thread.

Spencer, my day dreamer

A boy with a smile always on his face.  So easy going.  My little dreamer.  A joker who laughs easily and is impossible to be mad at.   

But when he wants something he is very particular. He likes things orderly and his way.  He wants to make his own choices.  Stubborn and obstinate. 

I love this gorgeous boy. 

Happy 1/2 year Birthday!

Cuteness abounds! 

Current skills include sitting up, rocking back and forth on my hands and knees, putting my mouth on everything, and pulling myself up onto my knees.

I have 2 teeth coming in on the bottom.  I love smiling. And I am enjoying eating. 

I don’t cry often, but when I do I am usually tired or want to nurse.  I laugh freely, and can easily make my brothers smile.

Teeth

My biggest boy has his first loose tooth.  I wiggle it every day.  He is not impressed.

My little girl has her first tooth coming in.

Somehow this timing is symbolic, but I am simply too tired to analyze it in detail.  *sigh*

Update: Make that 2 and 2!  2 loose for Elliott and 2 coming in for Trea. 

We have a mover

When Trea was in the hospital her pediatrician noted that she was going to be an early mover.  And she was right!
Trea could roll from her tummy to her back at a month old.  I didn’t think it was possible, but she did it 10 times over.  I attribute her large head to the phenomenon.  And her strong will, of course. 
And over the last couple of weeks she has figured out how to go from back to tummy. She has very strong abdominal muscles and can pull herself into a sit-up when I sit her on my lap.  It is super cute to watch her work.  I do wonder if all of her ab work is causing her to spit up more.  It seems silly to link the two, but they are happening simultaneously. Can anyone weigh in on this?
Here is photographic evidence of her rolling over.  I left her on her back, and when I came back, she had rolled to her front.  She didn’t make a sound while she worked, and seemed very proud of herself when discovered.
