“Many a new day” (Oklahoma)

Saturday, April 10th, 2010

Almost a month since the last blog update. So many things are happening that we want to document, but we forget to take pictures, forget to load photos, or are just too tired to update the blog. The good news is that the kids have all been happy and healthy over the last month. The not so good news is we have had a really tough time at night. All three kids were waking up during most nights and some nights daddy’s were left with only a couple hours of sleep. Lately it has gotten much better. Evan is almost always sleeping through (but likes to wake up at 6), Sophie will wake up once about 50% of the time and just want some daddy time, and Max is still usually wanting to eat at about 1 AM.

Max is now playing in the jumpy seat, sitting in high chair, eating rice cereal and playing with all sorts of toys. He mostly loves to watch Evan and Sophie and will giggle and laugh whenever they are. Sophie continues to develop her speech. She adores Matthew and calls him “Mat-Mew” – it’s adorable. She is finally beginning to call Evan more than “Ehh”and now says “Evan” about 75% of the time. She pooped on the potty last week, but will normally just say “poopie, poopie” then sit on the potty for 5 minutes and say “all done”¬† without anything happening. Evan is in the middle of potty training. He knows he gets a bike when he is done, so he is working on it diligently. For the last 3 days he has done every pee in the potty during the day. Regular underwear stayed dry all day two days in a row. I think we are off to buy a bike today. Yesterday when I came home from work he told me he peed in the potty. I said “great Evan, I am so proud of you, do you want to go pee with Daddy again¬† right now?” He said, “Daddy if I go pee again do I get 2 bicycles?”
