Today Zachary is 2 months old. How did that happen so fast? We went to the doctor yesterday and I cried almost as hard as he did when he got his shots :( He is still too little to get Tylenol, so he was pretty miserable last night. He cried more yesterday than he has in the 2 months of his sweet little life. His stats yesterday--7 lb, 19 1/2" long, and not even on the charts for weight or height for a 2 month old. We'll do a little dance for him once he makes the charts :) Seriously, how has it been 2 months since this little boy entered the world?
Emerald has had a cold the last week. I hate it when my kids get sick in any way. They are so sad and pathetic and I can't do anything for them. She has been a trooper, though. She is really getting into torturing her little brother these days. She's also been a little bit of a drama queen. Emerald is proving, yet again, to be a fantastic big sister. She always wants to hold Zach and be in his face--kind of hard on us this week since she's been sick. She is doing a fantastic job with her letters lately. Seems like her reading skills develop more and more each day. By looking at her, you'd never guess she was a short pudgy baby any time. She is sprouting up tall and thin and it is so hard to find pants that fit her well.
Calvin has been a fantastic big brother. Last night was really the first time the kids have heard Zach cry much. Calvin was so concerned for his brother. "Uh oh, mommy-o, daddy-o, Za-ry crying, Za-ry crying." Said to us with the most sad, please help him, voice I've heard out of Calvin. He is always wanting to hold Za-ry's hand and talk to him in a super-soft voice, something that seems odd for us from Calvin :) Calvin has taken to fighting back with Emerald and has learned the art of sitting on his sister if he doesn't get his way. He's been a little whiny lately and is forever asking for "my Bo-Bo" (his monkey). He loves helping us out with Za-ry's diaper (put in trash) and doing everything himself. His independence is really starting to shine thru.
You may have noticed our March of Dimes badge on the side. Look for a post soon to describe it. Is is really almost March? My year is flying by. We've had some fantastic weather lately. 2 days this week were in the 60's and we all enjoyed some outside time with our neighbor friends. Missing those Texas winters right about now :) Unfortunately, the warm weather is just a teaser and now we are going to have more cold weather, yuck!
I'm off to another photo shoot. A wonderful photographer from my church, Julie, is wanting some "practice" on newborns, and wants to use my boy (and I don't mind at all). Hope we get some good shots. We had some great pics from Angela when she was here. Check out her blog, AE, on my blog roll on the side bar.
