A cranky beach baby. Jake just wanted to sleep in his car seat but I just had to get a picture of him in his new hat. So he slept and the girls hung out in the pool for the 4th of July. We weathered the hurricane, even went out to the store to get the girls a game because they were bored! So Arthur was no big deal and we were able to get to the beach and see some family and go to the pool. We also had fire works!
Before that cousin Lily came for a visit and she was so enamored with Jake. She wanted to touch him and kept smiling at him (such a pretty smile she has!) and got upset when they were separated. I know they will be good friends!
|Not the best picture, but what do you expect with 2 3-year-olds and 2 under the age of 1?|
Jake is such a good baby for us. He sleeps 6-7 hours at night and sometimes even 8. He's starting to goo and gaa for us and he's getting so good at keeping his head up and scooting forward when you put your hand behind his feet. It reminds me of when I would do it for the girls and have baby races to see who would scoot forward the farthest and fastest. How far they've come! Catherine is growing again. They both took a gymnastics class to see how it would go and they did great. Well, mostly. They were so excited and they've never done anything like this before so every time the teacher demonstrated something they immediately got up to do it rather than wait until he was done and it was their turn. But I will say that every time he asked them to sit down (which was about 100!) they did so quickly without complaint. I'll have gymnastics pictures soon. In the mean time I can give you their latest conversation "Samantha, don't sing!" "People don't have to do what you say all the time!"
I leave you with more pictures of Jake and his fantastic head-holding-up skills and adorable face. He now weighs 12lbs 8 oz!
