Well, it has been a very long time since I have updated you on my family!
First of all, Joe and I are have started our weight loss journey. As of now, Joe has lost over 40 pounds and I have lost 25 pounds since we started this journey in July. It is slow going, but we are seeing our progress and are very excited to continue this journey.
Sophia is turning into a beautiful, smart little girl. She is still going to her sitter Julie's everyday we have school. She loves it there and misses it when she does not go. Her friends are great there. She is also learning her alphabet and numbers and has become very interested in doing puzzles and using technology. She definitely follows in her daddy's footsteps. She is looking forward to Christmas and can't wait until we get the Christmas trees up next weekend. I love her curiosity and her love for her sister!
Claire has changed the most. She is sitting up unassisted (when she wants to that is.) A couple weeks ago we started giving her rice cereal once a day. She really likes it. We tried some sweet potatoes and that didn't go over as well with her tummy so we are holding off for a week or two to try fruits and veggies again. She has been rolling for quite a few months so she has been able to get around very well. As if that wasn't enough, she has now began to do a modified crawl that looks more like she is a worm. She has the idea, she just doesn't know what to do with her hands/arms. She will be 6 months on Friday and according to all the emails I get about her development, she "shouldn't" be crawling until 7-10 months! It is way too early! Claire is getting so big. I am excited to see how she has grown on Friday at her doctor's appointment. I am not excited about the shots, but so far she has done very well with them.
The two of them together are amazing. They can get each other laughing so hard and I have no idea why they are laughing. Sophia is such a big helper and wants to play with her a lot. She is also becoming very responsible for her big girl toys and making sure they are getting picked up so Claire doesn't get into them.
I imagine there will be another update very soon with Claire's specs. from her doctor's appointment on Friday. Until next time...
