Peanut is in her third month. She weighs around 14lbs and she is smiley, chubby and beautiful. She is starting to be more and more awake and more and more loud. :)  She needs to be heard over her brother afterall, right?  She prefers to sleep on her tummy and she loves being "worn" in the baby carrier.

Ryder continues to be full of energy! He can be sooo happy and sweet when he wants to be, but when he is tired...look out! He's loud, insistent and cranky!!
He loves to pull his wagon and "fix" things that are "broken down." He's big at "taking the motor out" and putting "oil in it."  He often requests screw drivers to fix things and he is always looking to call a tow truck for some reason or another. He has also mastered the question of "Why??" and he is not aftraid to ask the same "why" over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over.... 
 Yep, definitely stuck. Gonna need a tow truck!

 He's still bigger than most of his buddies, and he loves to hug. Sometimes he's sooo affectionate that he knocks down his little friends or scares them with his too tight squeezes.

 He loves water and hoses and buckets...hey, what kid doesn't?
 The water play started out fully clothed, but eventually ended with everyone in their undies and diapers!

I love my kiddos, though, I'm not gonna lie, this month was a tough one with me being so sick, Ryder being potty trained (still) and Marty gone stampedeing as much as he was. I got a taste of single parenting and I am glad I don't have to do it. I respect so much Mom's and Dad's who do this day in and day out by themselves. It aint easy, especially when you are sick!!!!

WE survived though, and I am soooo excited to report that 6 weeks after starting out three day potty training bootcamp, Ryder is finally, mostly potty trained. He's telling me when he has to go and he's even pooping in the potty!!!!!! Life is about to get way easier, right???

Kiss your babies, count your blessings and double up on Vitamin C if you feel a cold coming on!!!
