Five updates

Baby K is up to 7.5 lbs as of his appointment yesterday. The doctor said he looked to be healthy and happy which is good news, of course. He is so tiny - I know my kids were that small (Lily was way smaller!) but it seems so long ago.

BB is a funny boy. He is talking up a storm now, and doing that toddler thing where he says a string of sounds that he thinks are words but make no sense. He also has quite the temper. He is fond of throwing, slapping, stomping, etc, when he doesn't get his own way (and also sometimes just for fun). So far, he's been pretty gentle with Baby K (even going so far as to snuggle and want to hold him without prompting) but we'll see how long this lasts. I have to admit that there is just a difference between boys and girls in terms of how they play, too.

Brooklyn just started her second year of preschool. She has come so far since she came to us over two years ago. We went through some serious potty training regression this summer which made me want to poke my own eyes out, but that seems to have cleared up now (knock on wood).

Then there's Lucy. She is hysterical, a performer and an attention seeker. She is in love with Baby K. When I brought him home on Friday, she ran out the door to meet me.  She can often be found petting his head or asking to feed him.

Lily just started Kindergarten and man, I cannot believe the change in her - she seems more grown up after only three weeks. I was so nervous about how this would go for her because she is so shy and doesn't like to talk to adults. But I think it might be something she's outgrowing, she's clearly more confident already - she rapidly progressed from us walking her into the cafeteria and waiting with her until the bell rang to just having us walk her into the cafeteria to letting us drop her off.
