Merry Christmas!

We made it New Mexico safe and sound. The kids did great on the 15-hour trip, although our plan to leave at 4am so the kids would sleep in the car kind of backfired. Caleb didn't go back to sleep and he only slept about an hour and a half all day. Thankfully we arrived early enough to have some playtime before bed. We're still trying to get the kids to sleep and nap well after that day!

There is actually snow on the ground here, which is a first for us. Usually when we come, we bring the warm weather with us and there's no snow. But, as I type, Caleb and Daddy are sledding!

We just wanted to wish you a very Merry Christmas!

Check-ups and Santa and all that stuff

I've been slacking on posting lately, mostly because I don't have a lot of time and when I do, I sit down to write and my brain gets so foggy I can't form complete thoughts. ;-)

Levi is HUGE. At his two-month check-up, he weighed 14 lbs. 4 oz. That's almost 2 pounds more than Caleb weighed at the same age. He's in the 95th percentile. He's also 23 3/4" long. He's outgrown pretty much every 0-3 month outfit and wears 3-6 month clothes comfortably. If he keeps this up, Caleb's clothes aren't going to fit at the right seasons! I like to call him my "chunky monkey." :-)

Levi is such a good baby and he's sweet as can be. He's starting to giggle now, which is precious. And, big news...he's finally sleeping longer at night and going longer in between feeds. Thank goodness! He'll now go 4 hours once or twice a night and usually 3 hours during the day between feedings. It's helped my sanity a lot!

Caleb is doing great. I'm amazed at how smart he is. Last night he actually carried on a conversation with his Daddy on the phone. He used to just tell you about everything he was looking at, but now he actually answers questions. He loves his little brother so much. He'll lay down beside Levi and say, "Hi baby brother" and give him kisses.

Last week Kimberly and I took the kids to have their pictures made with Santa. You can see that Ava wasn't having anything to do with Santa, but my boys' picture actually turned out well. It's the best you could expect from a two-year-old and a two-month-old:

And this picture I think is priceless. :-)

Ava is completely upset. Caleb's doing his own thing. And Levi looks freaked out. :-) Ahhh...memories.

By the way, I love, love, love having my sister live close. It's so fun to have someone to hang out with during the day and do things like this. Ava and Caleb love playing together, too.

We are gearing up for the drive to New Mexico for Christmas. We are really excited to be there and spend time with Justin's family. The drive we're not so excited about. If you have any great ways to keep a two-year-old occupied on a 16-hour car trip, please tell me about them in the comments!
