I'm having such a hard time diligently updating for Olivia like I did with James. I haven't even filled in the details of her birth into her baby book. It is empty.
She is almost six months old now. At two months she was smiling, at three months giving me a little laugh and rolling from her back to her belly. Now at 5 months she can roll front to back and back to front. She has no teeth yet but is cooing and trying to "talk" to us. She is so close to crawling. She just needs to coordinate all her efforts. We've also been using cloth diapers with her because of her large frame. The disposable ones just leak all the time. These past few days it seems like she's made a huge jump in being aware of her surroundings and exploring her environment. She's totally a momma's girl and won't let me out of her sight which makes it difficult to have "me" time. She's getting better with Jake though and totally adores James. While she isn't sleeping through the night yet, at least she wakes up to eat and then goes right back to sleep. I am so glad to be out of the beginning, cry for hours, super gassy stage.
Next month James will be three! He is fast becoming a "big" boy. He's so smart and funny. I am amazed at his vocabulary and intelligence. We are hoping his allergies will be resolved at our next appointment. It would be awesome for him to be able to have an ice cream cone this summer.
Things are starting to become somewhat normal around here. I can finally do laundry and housework on a regular basis. I am looking forward to the warm weather and spending time with the kids at the park or outside. Maybe I can shed these last 15 pounds as well.
