Update on the Kiddos

I haven't done a real update on the kids in a while. Everyone is doing great and keeping me running!

These three acting like babies...
they are the silliest, and I love their imaginations these days.

Landry turns four in exactly a month. Are you kidding me?! That has completely snuck up on me. I have so many Landry quotes written down, but I'll share those in another post. She is too much!
She is hit or miss with getting decent photos of her recently. She is such a goober, and she doesn't like to look at the camera AT ALL.  

We've had the chance to get out regularly and have more girl time lately. I love this...I need this! I think she is so sweet and so witty (when she isn't being a total terror...bc you know, that happens occasionally when you're 3). I love how our conversations are growing and changing, and I hope it's always easy for her to talk to me!

She still loves to dress up, but is more interested in being in "real" princess dresses rather than her play dresses. She is particular about how she wants her hair fixed and gives me lots of direction...already! She gets up most mornings and dresses herself before she comes downstairs, and then she brushes her hair first thing. :) It's so fun to watch her grow.
She is the biggest helper around the house, and she always asks what she can be doing. She was teaching Collier how to make the windows "sparkle" the other day.

Collier is 2 1/2, and he is completely inconsistent at this stage. He can go from being the most joy-filled child to screaming and throwing a tantrum in two seconds flat. His favorite new thing to say when he's in trouble is, "No! Stop talkin' to me!" I'm trying to get that one to stop! I still see glimpses of my precious baby boy, but mixed with this crazed, hungry maniac.
Seriously, all he wants to do is eat, and eat, and eat. He can eat a huge breakfast and be hungry 5 minutes later. I feel like I'm constantly having to plan meals for him. I'm not okay with him just eating junk regularly, so that makes it a bit harder to plan. Maybe if I would just feed him a darn Snickers bar he wouldn't be hungry anymore? Ha!

Collier got married to a friend's little girl the other night. She is 6, and she taught Collier so much. Ha! :) I don't think he had a clue what a wedding was, and now he's been asking to play it. Notice, he also had to have a bouquet of flowers. This groom is not going to be outdone!

 Collier is the best big brother. He constantly asks where "Breb" is, and he wants to help feed him his bottles and get him toys. He is so, so proud.

We've had a great week celebrating Bretton's great MRI results! His MRI of his brain and spine were clear, and everything looks great! At this point, the doctors feel like his stiff muscle tone is pretty normal for him. We are continuing with our two days of physical therapy each week for his neck, and he will wear his helmet for another month or two to keep improving his head shape.
He is hands down THE MOST laid back baby. He is easy going and has the sweetest personality.
We went for his 6 month check-up last week, and he has gained weight and is in the 25th percentile now. He sleeps 12-13 hours at night without waking up...and that is a total blessing! He is eating some solid foods, and his favorites so far are butternut squash and carrots.

I love how he holds on to his car seat while Daddy is driving. I can't see, but I'm positive he doesn't feel the need to do that when I drive. :) :)

His toe busted through his favorite pair of pj's this morning. This made me laugh because Landry and Collier have both done that too! Apparently our family has wild big toes!
We are having a great weekend together. Yesterday was beautiful and today it's snowing again! Absolutely crazy, but great weather for snuggling and having a movie day! We all love when Daddy is home!
Make THIS Monday will be back tomorrow with another (way easy) breakfast recipe your family will love!
