Goings On

Well, Miss Baby had her 4 month checkup yesterday. She's doing great. 13 lbs. even, 24 3/4 in. long. Early onset stranger anxiety ;) which apparently is typical for girls. Rolling to at least one side, laughing up a storm, she's on track and ahead of things.

Only downside is she has a cold. Poor girl has had a stuffy nose the past few days or so and it turned into a runny nose yesterday afternoon and through the night and still this a.m. I pray this is short lived, she just seems so miserable with it. She slept pretty well last night, only waking once in frustration with the runny nose mess, but settled herself back down pretty quickly and slept the rest of the night. I slept less, on red alert listening for gagging, etc. from the drainage. Sigh.

I have successfully gotten Miss E and Miss A signed up for swimming lessons. This will be their first time for lessons, first time in a pool, etc. We bought suits yesterday. Miss E wanted to know where the ones with sleeves were....we bought shorts to wear over the suits. They start June 15 and will have 30 mn. lessons each day. The classes are 2 children maximum, which we were very happy about, and they're guaranteed to be able to swim across the shallow end by the end of the week, or we get another week free for another go at it. I'm hoping that won't be necessary. A good friend is going to watch Mr. E, Mr. A and Miss Baby for me during the lessons every day that week - did I say, a "good" friend? A FABULOUS friend!

Mr. E wants to take lessons too - we'll see how it goes w/the girls first, then see about it for later in the summer.

Hmm, Miss E started back to piano lessons yesterday - she will be focusing on technique this summer (June/July) with this teacher. She said she liked the new teacher (who is the daughter of her regular teacher).

Mr. A is doing very well w/potty training 101.

Lots of summer church meetings coming up - I think we're planning on at least 3 and they're each 2 weeks apart - just enough time to rest and recover, maybe, before the next one!

Well, I better run, Miss Baby has fallen asleep on my lap while I was typing this!

What's going on w/everyone else out there/

Swim lessons sound fun. I'm comitted to no other lessons until Silas learns to stay with me and sit still. Church is the exception. :) Have fun!
