Miles is getting up on his hands and knees and starting to get some forward motion! It's exciting and nerve wracking all at once, the big kids are having to be really careful about picking up all of the little toys now. His growth has seemed to slowed down a bit, but I'm convinced it's because he's so wiggly. He's constantly on the move and I'm sure that burns tons of calories. I've started giving him food at every meal instead of just once a day, so hopefully that will help.
Ruby's winter break ended on Wednesday, but she had to stay home Thursday and Friday because she was still sick. :(
Ruby and Reid both got a fever again on Tuesday. This picture is exactly on point for how they act when they're sick. Ruby just wants to lay in bed and eat bananas and toast, while Reid is still his busy little self. Haha!
Miles has been pushing himself up to sit also! He LOVES being down on the floor, moving around.
He was "cropping his seeds" with his tractor and trailer.
We had to make a snowman together for school during winter break.
Scooting to the door to see the activity out in the bathroom.
More fun train tracks.
Reid helped me make some pasta for dinner (Italian sausage, blue cheese, sun dried tomatoes... it was delicious).
They did a Mary and Joseph play, and Miles was baby Jesus. It was too cute.
He's starting to like standing so much (with help still).
Poor sick baby. He just wanted me to rub his back.
Her cough/breathing was pretty bad, she even had croup in the night once and it scared her (and us) really bad.
Pushing up to sit.
On Friday morning, Ruby gave us a scare. She woke up, but then at breakfast she went back to sleep on the couch. Then she was really hard to wake up and kept falling back asleep. I called the advice nurse and they said bring her in. I gave her some water, and we think that might have been it, because she seemed okay once we fully woke her. Yikes!
This was pretty much the sum of our week.... the kids fighting. It has been really rough and wearing on us all. :( We've been praying a lot and reading some books to try to help.
Miles likes to pull hair. (I'm not sure what's up with the drool on Reid's chin. Haha!)
Finally, a sweet moment of them reading together. It was short lived though, of course.
Silly Miles! He thought this was hilarious.
On Saturday we were feeling much better, so we baked a bunch of cookies and delivered them to Andy's family because we missed celebrating Christmas with them (they did it on the 1st and we were too sick).
The kids got scooters!!
Miles opening up a toy with Grandma.
We had a fun movie night, obviously it was a good one. :)
Pretty girl taking a photo for her birthday party invite.
He's learning to put on his own pants. :)
And cutie pie Miles. He really LOVES music of any kind, just like Reid did as a baby.
