Nuts and Bolts

Tyler had his 2 month check-up yesterday and he received a glowing evaluation. He is now 11 lbs 12 oz and 23 inches. Just as a reference point, these are similar measurements to Ella and Drew at 3 months. We aren't used to such a big...ah average...size guy! He smiles all the time and has started to coo a little bit. He is starting to focus on things around the room, especially the big clock on the wall and he loves the fish on his seat. Last night was the first night he went longer than 3 hours between eating!! Woo Hoo! Keep up the good work buddy! Ella is still infatuated with her little brother and she participates in all the feedings and changings that she can. She has started to play with her dolls more, feeding, changing, and wrapping them in blankets. When she gets them ready to go somewhere it is either the bookstore or to see "Nasha" as in Dr. Menasha the pediatrician! Drew is a music man. If he isn't playing his guitar he is drumming everything in sight. It is rare to see him without a drumstick. He is constantly saying, "Mum, Drum?" asking if he can bang on all sorts of things. We are trying to keep it on the quieter side so yes he can drum the couch, but no drumming the oven door. They still love books and we are at the library all the time. Other weekly outings include music class, the gym - a community center that opens its gym to families in the winter, the bookstore - they have a train table and a cafe for snacks, and sometimes the puppet show or a play date. We also spend some time at Panera with friends.
Getting out of the house with 3 is becoming routine and this week Ill add the 3rd seat to the stroller - stay tuned for pics.

I love the blog. Even though I have not met the kidos, I feel like I know them already. Thanks to Lauren for all her hard work with the postings. Sarah (in Alaska).
