Happy Birthday Mikey

Well My little Bear is four years old. My how the time does fly. I am not going to put that this is late because Thrsday I was with him having fun. (Well for the most part.) There are so many things I want to and could say about him but I am in the middle of making cake for his Birthday party tomorrow with the fam. I will however list four of my favorite things about him.
(in no particular order)

1. His songs. He is always singing. He always has. efore he could talk he would coo to the hymns. He sings all the time sometimes they are real songs sometimes they are totally made up and sometimes they are both. Real tunes with new woerds or vice versa.

2. The things he says. This was going to be two categories but I go selfish. Her has the sweetest compliments. Just today he told me that"I'm a real good denius". Sometimes he makes up words such as "quater to foshen" and sometimes he mixes up words constenation instead of constellation. But I love that he speaks so well because it gives me a little glimpse of what goes on in his head.

3. His imagination. He is so fun to watch when he is playing. I love when he shares his world with me. I love his stories and ideas for the world.

4. His hugs. He is so sweet to us. He always has the best hugs. It is so fun to watch him love on Lindsey even if I do fear for her at times. His hugs definately make the world feel like a better place.

Little Lindsey

Lindsey doesn't have just one nickname, she has several. It is often Sister, princess, Baby Girl, or Princess Pea. Today she is two months old. I can't believe how quickly the time passes. She had her first set of immunizations today. I can't believe she is big enough for her shots. (wipe a tear.) Mikey never cried when he got his shots until he was much older. He just got this look on his face like "Mom, why are you letting her do this to me." Well Lindsey is a different story she howled like the world was coming to an end. She was not pleased. But all it took was the trusty old soother and some momma love and she was soothed to her happy little self. She even gave me a sweet Lindsey smile. Today she is 10lbs 13 oz. she is 22.5inches. She is right on the 50% mark for head weight and height. The nurse told me to be proud of my nice balanced baby. Isn't funny the things we pride ourselves and our babies on at this age. Like burping and pooping. I always laugh when I catch myself melting all over her for behaviours we get on Mikey for e.g. burping, passing gas, and messing in her pants. Oh how time changes. Mikey was so sweet to her when he found out that she had to get shots. "Oh sis, I'm sorry." " I love you". Next time the whole family has to go. Mike and I have boosters, Mikey has pre-school shots and Lindsey has her four month shots. It should be fun.

My little bear

I am not sure how it started but I have always called Mikey Little Bear (or baby bear or just bear). But that is what he is lately I call him Bear more and more. He is such a sweet kid. The other day I overheard him making up a song for Lindsey. It went something like this: I love you Lindsey Grace Little babe for days and weeks weeks and days and days and days and daysand days.... It was so sweet then he came running in to me with a huge grin on his face and informed me that he had sang a song for sister and she smiled. It was so cute how excited he was. And so I try to remember this on days when he is trying to cover her mouth to get her to quit crying or he tries to lay on her or any other forms of rough love she has to endure. I can't beleive my "little" Bear will be four in two weeks. The time has flown by. I can still remember holding him when he was Lindseys size. I could never understand how Lisa could be baby hungry when she still had a baby, and while I still think she is crazy I understand it better when I see how quickly Lindsey is growing at her 6 week checkup she was 10'7'' way too big. WAY too big.
And on another note: Adria --Marintha made the bow not me she is amazing. And the onesie is just wonderunder and felt. So easy I can show you in July when you come if you'd like!!!
