Not even two weeks after Nathaniel's surgery, he was struck with yet another round of ear infections. Poor guy. Audrey is also recovering from another bout of infections too. She's tricky as she doesn't really show symptoms other than everything that can also be chalked up to teething.
We can't wait for the nice weather to come to get back outside. Poor Audrey's first year of pictures are all going to be from inside the house. Seems like it snows every weekend. We do get out but it's mostly to do laps at the mall, an indoor play place or a restaurant.
Nathaniel can finally officially say his name! He's been referring to himself as Nate because people couldn't understand his version of Nathaniel: Nano. He's getting good at writing letters and is constantly reading letters everywhere we go. He loves to play I Spy, school and other role playing games. He's getting really good on the Wii too with the snowboarding and motor cross games.
Audrey is crawling all over the place and pulling herself up. She's crazy in her walker but not yet really interested in furniture surfing. She's packing away the food but is still a little petite girl. Last week, she weighed in at 17 pounds. I'd say her most favorite activity is bath time now. She gets So excited when we turn the tub on.
They both great together. Nathaniel loves to care for her, he helps every step of the way. With her new mobility, they love to play together - hide & seek is a big hit.
We recently conquered some sleep issues with Nathaniel. He had gotten a little spoiled after Audrey was born and slowly the sleep system had been pretty abused, which was requiring him to have one of us lay down with him in order for him to get to sleep. It took a week, and only two of those nights were really bad, but we've succeeded in him going to bed at 7, not getting up and being much more rested come morning. Super Nanny would be proud.
He got busted playing with my makeup before school
Dinner makes me sleepy too
He loves to read and play school, reading to us and to his stuffed animals.
