Ava Drew is 3 years old!

My sweet Ava Drew, you are 3 years old! I can't believe it! You are the sweetest, sassiest, girlie girl ever!

You weigh 24 pounds and you are 34 inches tall. You wear a size 7 shoe and wear 2T clothing mainly for the length. Jeans are too big for you in the waist so you mainly wear leggings and dresses.

You still need your nap during the day. You will usually nap for about 2 hours every afternoon.

Your favorite song right now is Jesus loves me (with the hand motions) and you are phasing out of watching Peppa Pig. You used to be obsessed with it.

You LOVE barbies and you HAVE to have lipstick on at all times.

You are not a picky eater and will pretty much eat anything. You still don't like mashed potatoes or any potatoes really. You never have.

Some of my favorite things that you say... "Momma, come here, wet me show you sumfin", "We'll see", "Maybe", "Don't kiss me, you'll mess up my wipstick", "I'm a BIG girl", "I'm 3 months old", "Momma, watch dis, I'm a cheerweader".

You're my favorite girl in the whole world ever, Ava Drew!

Calum: 7 Months Old

Cal, you are 7 months old!! 

You weigh 17 pounds 6 ounces and 24 inches tall (I believe). You wear a size 3 diaper and 12 month 
clothes. You wear a size 2 shoe. Your hair is finally starting to grow back! 

You nurse every 3-4 hours and also eat a veggie and fruit during supper time. You take roughly 3 naps a day. You go to bed around 8:00 pm and sleep until 7:30/8:00 am. 

You just started crawling a few days ago! You can scoot pretty well. You are almost sitting up by yourself. You are still a little unstable. 

You cut your two bottom teeth on October 6th (6 1/2 mo.)! 

You slept in your room for the first time on Sept. 27th. (6 1/2 mo.)

You don't like to be held very often anymore. You'd much prefer to be on the floor playing with your toys.

You are the SWEETEST baby in the world! You never get fussy unless you are tired. 

We love you so much Calum Brooks!!

Calum: 6 Months

Happy Half Birthday, Bubba!!! You are 6 months old!!

At 6 months, you are wearing a size 3 diaper and I have no clue how much you weigh but I imagine it's around 17-18 pounds. You are wearing 9-12 month clothing. 

You are more interested in being on the floor playing with your toys than being held these days. You want to put everything in your mouth. 

You are the BEST baby! You are so easy-going. We can take you anywhere. You fall asleep almost instantly in church during the music and usually wake up as soon as the preacher starts to talk. 

We tried starting you on a little baby cereal but you did not like it one bit so we gave it a rest. You love baby food though! You have tried peas, green beans, carrots, squash, and bananas. You aren't a huge fan of the squash but you LOVE bananas. 

You love the exersaucer! You are smitten with your sister! Your face lights up when she enters the room. You have found your voice! You grunt and roar when you try to "talk". It is SO cute! You are all boy!!!

Calum: 5 Months Old

Cal Brooks, you are 5 months old!!! Almost half way to a year and I just can't take it, sweet boy! You are growing too fast!

I'm guessing you weigh around 16 or 17 pounds. You wear size 9 month clothes and size 3 diaper.

You are still nursing exclusively. We tried rice cereal about a week ago but you do NOT like it. You don't spit up near as much anymore.

You take about 3 naps a day each around 1 1/2 hours long and you usually go to bed around 9:30 and sleep for 12 hours.

Your a pretty serious but happy baby. 

Your hair has really started to grow.

You love to suck on your toes and you put everything in your mouth that is in reach.

You can role over both ways and you scoot around very well.

Your jumparoo is probably your favorite place to be, besides your momma's arms, of course.

I moved you from your cradle to the pack-n-play in my room and you sleep SO much better now. I guess its because you have more room.
