LeAnne is very happy to have Grandma Marcia home and loves spending time with her. LeAnne has set a goal to read 100 books this summer and as of this morning she has read 41 books. I love that she is a ravenous reading and pray it stays that way. I have really enjoyed reading with her and hearing how well she is reading. I am amazed that she will be just 6 in October and is reading at a 2nd grade level. She has a lot been doing a lot of journal writing. She loves to write stories and draw. She has been having a lot of fun having us play kick/catch with her in the back yard. I can't wait to get her swing set put up in our back yard. I just picked it up from Walmart today. I am thinking John will get to work on it early next week because this week he has a TOUGH week of school. He has taking 2 classes this summer working toward earning his Bachelor degree in Criminal Justice from WSU online. The summer courses very difficult because its a compressed schedule. Sometime like 15 weeks crammed into 6 weeks. LeAnne has also been enjoying arts and crafts and the library and can't wait to go to the beach in August.
Christian weighed 11 pounds 10 ounces and was 23 inches long at his 2 month well check last week. The Dr is impressed with how alert he is. The first comment we get from people who see him is something about how much hair he has. Thinking he'll need his first hair cut before LeAnne and she had her first hair cut at 6 months. He is smiling at us all and started to coo and make other adorable noises. He is wearing 0-3 months and some 3 month clothing. I can't wait until summer gets her so I can have him just wear tee-shirt and his cute cloth diapers. Cloth diapering is going well. I have 1 adorable custom diaper on the way, an Army one. Then can't wait to order a few more custom diapers in July or August. Loving his little fluff but. After he settles down for the night he is sleeping one good 5 hour stretch at night. He and I are still sleeping downstairs. Him in his swing and me in my recliner. I have tried to move him upstairs to his bassinet or the pack and play and he wakes up. One day I will get to sleep laying down again. :-) LeAnne still really enjoys her little brother and gets a big kick out of him smiling at her. John adores his son! He is a huge help with both LeAnne and Christian! I appreciate his help with the kids a ton!
I better get some pictures loaded up before little man wakes up. I would like to say I will blog more but for now I just can't say that. I'll try but no promises. I do need to document his milestones or I know I will forget. Motherhood is really the hardest yet most rewarding job EVER! oh speaking of jobs... I am officially now a stay at home mama! It's going to be interesting financially but I am praying we'll make it work. So now I am working on figuring out my new role in life. :-)
