Jane has perfect Genes!!!

 We finally got our results back from Jane's gene sequencing, and it is all beautiful! There are NO GENETIC ABNORMALITIES! The geneticist said that everything looks great. So her only problems stem from her eating and slow weight gain. And she is now just barely over 12 pounds! The GI is very happy with her progress. SUCH A HUGE RELIEF!!!

Abby's Preschool

My first week of teaching Abby's preschool came and we had lots of fun! We practiced counting with water beads and writing our letters in shaving cream. It is fun watching Abby interact and learn.

 Kate and Jon and still loving soccer. It is fun to watch Jon coach Kate. And Jane sat in her bumbo for the first time after a game this week.

 Mason and Abby have such a love hate relationship! At this soccer game Mason ran away from Abby for the first 30 minutes refusing to give her a hug. Then awhile later started chasing her around trying to kiss her. He got her a few times and pulled her into his arms like so: (hehe--young love is too cute!)

 Disney's new live action Cinderella came out, and we all love it! The movie has such a wonderful message that I hope I can teach my girls to emulate.
I got my ugly moles removed!!!! I've had the mole on my forehead and back (not pictured) for as long as I can remember, but during Jane's pregnancy they both changed and grew, so I decided better safe than sorry and had them removed. They came back as benign, so that is good, and I'm happy to not have such an ugly bump on my head!! It's healing rather nicely.
Then this last picture is of Jane wearing some of my pjs from when I was a baby. So fun!

All 3 at 3 months

 Jane                                                                          Abby

More for me than anyone, I wanted to compare my girls all at 3 months. I thought I'd share so you can enjoy too. I love how it goes Kate is oldest and chunkiest, Abby middle, Jane skinny! I love that they are so different but still similar. I'm so lucky to be their mom!

Jane at 3 months

 We have made it to the 3 month milestone! I always feel like 3 months is when your newborn starts becoming more human....maybe it is just because you are getting back to normal yourself since they start letting you sleep! Jane still wins the prize for worst sleeper--but she still needs the calories so we forgive her. She sleeps from about 10-3am, then 3 to 6 or 7. She is also the only one who can claim Dad as her nurse! Jon has been taking the 3am feeding since basically her birth (one benefit to bottle feeding!) She coos and smiles, but it kills me, her preferred smile is this half smile. Overall I can tell that she was my early baby, cause I think she still acts younger than 3 months, but she's getting on the right track!

Her sisters came in this morning during our photo shoot and wanted in on the action.

Abby starts Preschool

 We are doing a rotating preschool with some families from church. Abby couldn't be more excited to go to 'baby school' as she calls it. I just hope she pays attention! This girl is so full of life!

Kate takes over Kindergarden

 This spunky, girl was so excited to start school! After we bought school supplies she asked me how much longer she was stuck with me! Gee thanks! Dropping her off was fun, she was so confident. And they interviewed me for the local news and aired it! I was so glad I wore real clothes!

 Happy girl. I can't wait to see her learn and grow this year.

Tummy Time

 Jane is acting more and more like a normal baby every day. She smiles and coos all the time, and has started doing really great at holding herself up! Things I love; her eyelashes!, how she sleeps with her arms folded under her...precious, and her smile always seems to be a side smile....cute cute!


Stereotypical girlhood rite of passage, dress up with makeup while mom is busy. I was impressed, they used only purple and made sure their outfits matched. Fabulous!
