Time Flies When You Have a Toddler and a Baby

It has been one busy month with my two little kids. Asher is growing like crazy because he is basically eating twice as much as he should. Now I understand the meaning of "Eat you out of house and home." Let's just say that our formula costs are quite amazing. This kid can chow it down. He will be 6 whopping weeks old this week but he looks a lot bigger than that. We had to retire our newborn clothing and move up to 3-6 month clothing already. He's a lot like his big sister in that sense because she has always worn twice her size compared to her age. Addie is almost 2 years old and wears a 3T-4T. I love my big little kids.
Asher is getting quite the personality. I love listening to him coo when he's awake, laugh when he's falling asleep and sigh when he's dreaming. I fall in love with him more and more every day. He has an awesome dimple in his left cheek. His hair is slowly getting longer (mostly in the back). It has a cute curl when it's wet, but straightens again when it dries. He is getting a double chin and a big belly with rolls forming nicely on his legs and arms. He's going to be quite a hunk when he's older... but of course I think I have the cutest kids ever... just like every mom!
Addie is almost an official toddler. Her birthday is next week. We had to delay her birthday party because we keep getting sick at our house. It's Aaron's turn to fight a fever today and I'm crossing my fingers that I don't get it next. Addie was so sick on Saturday. She spent the entire day on the couch or in bed. By the next morning though she was back to her old self and getting into all kinds of mischief. That's my girl... she's a little stinker. She is testing all of the limits right now so we are working on making choices and setting expectations. She's a spunky little girl and I love her to pieces. She has quite the imagination right now. She loves to play with her dolls, puzzles, books, blocks and anything else she can get her hands on. I love watching her color pictures and write scribbles for her name. She copies everything we say so it's not uncommon to hear her repeating us word for word right after we talk. She is also taking after me when I was a little girl because her phrases usually include "ME TOO" with anything and everything she wants. If you're lucky, you can sometimes hear her belt out a cute Addie version of the jazz song "Summertime."
Aaron is busy with work and school. I'm busy with kids and keeping the house clean. We sleep whenever possible to make up for our 2 hour of sleep nights that seem to be so frequent. We can't wait for the day when we feel human again and get a full night of sleep and regular showers. I love having my little guy... but it sure is a lot of work right now. It's a good thing he's so worth it! Is it nap time yet?

Rock Band Girl

My girl loves Rock Band. It's hilarous! She gets so excited for Daddy to come home so they can play together. I have to admit that the new baby has limited their time playing considerably but Addie still loves to pull out the guitar every single day. Sometimes she pretends to play along with the Imagination Movers which happens to be one of her favorite TV shows right now. Yes, my child watches the Disney Channel. She loves it. Her other favorites: Little Einstein, Hannah Montana and Jonas Brothers. Too much for a 2-year-old? Not all when you have a newborn!
