Anyways, on to a little update on the kids. Brady is very very four. He talks to me without ceasing...ALL DAY LONG. I try to listen. I try to answer question after question...sometimes I don't have the answers. This month I'm going to begin reading lessons with him. He already knows the sounds of all of his letters so hopefully he'll catch on pretty soon. I have a goal to teach him all about a new place in the world once every 2 weeks. You know...the state bird, flower...what they do for entertainment...that sort of thing. He has such a sweet heart and thanks me constantly for anything I do for him. Yesterday i went to the consignment shop to search for a coat for him....yep, that's right...we're in the middle of winter and he doesn't have a warm coat. Anyways, I found one and when I gave it to him he just said "oh thank you so much." Later, probably 2 hours later, he was playing in his coat and he looked up at me with a smile and said "thank you so much for getting this coat for me." Ah, melts the heart.
Trinity is still the treasure and joy of my heart. I don't say *life* even though she is...heart just seems more appropriate since I feel it swelling every time I talk and laugh with her. She is getting so big and is big brother's biggest fan. Anything Brady does...she wants to do. She is quick to obey and has a very spunky spirit but is also very sensitive. She loves to dress up and just recently was given some used princess costumes - it is a HOOT! Pictures to come.....
Trinity is basically potty trained just still needs a diaper at night. I think she has a food allergy and I've almost narrowed it down to nuts...poor little thing - she loves peanut butter so much. Trin likes to pretend like she's serving my food all day long. Oh, and she still loves to sing. She's my little song bird.
Tristan is such a happy baby...unless I decide to put him in his pack and play before he's good and ready. He's still not sitting up on his own which is strange to me since the other two were crawling at 6 months. No...he just content to bounce and sit in the bumbo all day. I give him lots of belly time and he has fun but no crawling movements. My word for Tristan is "chill." It would be so funny if as he grows older if he were to keep that relaxed attitude. Such a change around here....the other two kiddos are pretty *on the go* to say the least. I was suppose to go today to get Trist measured and weighed but am going to call and cancel since Zac is working and there's no way I'm sitting in an office with all three kids. No way at all.
