Rockin' Ryan

Ryan is the FUNNIEST kid I have ever known. Here he is rockin' out on his guitar from "Santa". He does this ALL on his own...pulls out the shades, shakes his head, spins, etc. It is SO funny!!!

Can't believe our baby will be 4 yrs old in another 2 months.

Big girls turn 7 months old!

On March 23, 2010 our Allie, Norah and Olivia turned 7 months old. WOW! Although the sleepless nights (for 7 months) are taking a toll on me and Nick, every moment is worth it. Olivia has slept through the night a handful of times. She's almost ready! Allie, who eats the least, slept through the night 1 or 2 times and Miss Norah just protests. She will be our last one to give up nighttime feedings. We are currently working on a project to close our loft off and make it a 4th bedroom. This may be Norah's space if she decides she won't try to sleep through the night. Having a separate space will allow us to give her a little time to cry and see if she will fall back to sleep without eating. Right now we worry too much that she'll wake her sisters.
Norah and Olivia have started solids. They are getting about 1 TBSP of rice cereal every day at lunch. We've even tried carrots and applesauce at this point. We will be taking foods VERY slow with the girls just because of all of Ryan's food allergies. We've tried Allie twice with rice cereal but she chokes so we aren't pushing it too much. She'll let us know when she is really ready.

Thank goodness we have made it to springtime. If we all can get well (since March 1st someone in the house has had a sinus infection) we will be getting everyone out of the house soon. Still trying to be cautious. It's been a long winter!

Miss Olivia = BIG GIRL!

Thank you sweet Olivia for being the first to sleep through the night. Last night was the 3rd night in a row for her to give mom & dad a big treat. Although, it's great she is sleeping all night, we still are getting up 4 other times to feed her two sisters.

Norah and Allie, did you miss the memo? You are big girls too! Please, please, please...think about it. Try it out. (Peer pressure!)

...Love, Mom...
