Miss Smarty Pants

We were playing out in the backyard yesterday before dinner. I thought everyone would enjoy seeing our little ham showing off her smarts. Then, of course, she wanted to come inside and watch her movies that we made.

2 month checkup and babies' first day of daycare

Believe it or not, these babies are almost 3 months old! We went on Monday for their 2-month well check up and shots. The doctor says they are both doing great and progressing as they should be. Their stats are:

Carley- 11 pounds even and 21" long
Evan- 10 pounds, 5 oz. and 22" long (he is going to be tall and skinny like his daddy) :D

A few weeks ago we decided to switch Evan's formula because clearly he was having reflux and spitting up a whole lot and super fussy. We are now using Similac with rice starch in it. They are changing the packaging, so there are two different looking cans out there. Similac RS or Similac Sensitive for Spit-Up, if you are shopping. Just FYI.

About 2 weeks ago, we had to put Evan on Prevacid for acid reflux. He was having the exact same symptoms and problems that Becca had at this age, so we knew what to look for. It has taken awhile, but we are finally seeing some improvement. The doc says to expect him to stay on the meds until 5 or 6 months old.

This is my last week on maternity leave, so the babies started daycare today with Becca. I figured we could use a few days to practice the routine.

All our babies before daycare this morning. Becca was so happy that Carley and Evan can finally go with her to school! Big Sister even helped them find their room today.

This is a 10 week picture. I just thought Carley and Evan looked cute in these outfits!

Silly Girl

Not sure when Lee took this video. I just found it when I was going through the video camera. This is one of Becca's new expressions.

Playdate with Grayson

Wednesday we had a playdate with Becca's friend, Grayson and his brother Dalton. They are friends from our old daycare. Becca says that Grayson is "her buddy." She is crazy about him, it's so cute!

We went to the Jump Zone in Bentonville then to lunch. Jump Zone is this place that has a bunch of inflatable bouncy houses, slides, etc. The kids can just go crazy in there....and the parents can play, too! I took a few videos. You can totally hear them giggling.

The kids had not seen each other since Becca's birthday, so they were very happy to play together. (oh--and I had to change her clothes because she's not good at drinking from the water fountain yet). HA!
