Tidbits of Life

It's hard to believe how fast time has flown since my last post. I've gotten to be such a loser about writing! As that has been the case, here a few tidbits to fill you in on what's been happening around here:

Ezra now sings The Beatles's "Hello Goodbye" (although just the chorus).

Georgia now dances to the aforementioned song. You should see her-she stands up against something and just bobs and bounces. In fact, now that I mention it, I might just have to take a video of Ezra singing and Georgia bouncing.

Georgia has been weaned and is soley on table foods. I was nervous to make the transistion at first since she is so small, but my milk was drying up and I really did need to be eating a more of a complete diet for the baby. Despite all my worries, Georgia has done fabulously. She gobbles up all kinds of food, although she does have definite likes and dislikes. She'll let you know when something doesn't strike her fancy pretty dang fast.

Ezra is absolutely in love with trains, Thomas the Tank Engine especially. Those of you at Ruby's Inn might remember the Missing Thomas Disaster of '08 (Thomas was later found with a bunch of toys belonging to another cousin. They had gotten thrown in there by mistake). Ezra insists on taking Thomas and the Sodor Fuel car everywhere he goes and often sleeps with them (heaven knows how two wooden trains can possibly be comfortable to sleep on). He takes his trains and track-building very seriously, frequently telling Georgia to leave them alone because they are his "very special trains".

*A quick THANK YOU! to Auntie Libby and her boys Josiah, Gavin, and Gunner for loaning Ezra their train set until we can aquire one of our own.*

Ezra seems to be in another "fasting" phase. He's always picky, but when he gets like this, we're lucky to get him to eat anything. His entire diet for the day has consisted of a handful of raisens, four soda crackers, three bites of an apple, a sucker (he discovered it on top of the fridge left over from Valentine's Day...lovely), and half a cup of applesauce. The sad thing is that it's a lot considering the rest of this week.

While Georgia doesn't yet walk, she does cruise along the furniture and has even started to push some of Ezra's toy boxes around and walk behind them. I'm beginning to think it won't be long now! It might be not be a good thing, necessarily, but it's still always exciting when the little ones learn to walk.

Well, folks, that's about all I have time for today. Spencer's giving a presentation at an ASHRAE conference tonight (Yay! for Spencer), so I've got to get stuff ready for the babysitter. Thanks for sticking through the long breaks between these last few posts, I hope to get back into more of regular posting schedule after this. Have a fabulous day!

Nice to see the updated ticker!

I didn't notice the ticker, but I just realized why you could eat that piece of chocolate cake on Saturday... no more nursing! Ha ha. The things we notice.

Welcome back! And congratulations! Nothing wrong with being too busy to blog... hope you're feeling okay this time around!

Wow...I feel posted Friday and it is Monday and I am finally reading it. Oh yeah...I had the weekend from HECK!

Anyway...sounds like the kids are doing great. Don't worry about Ezra's should ask Kaila about Alex. For the last 4 or 5 months or so...he only eats bananas. That's it. Nothing else.

Keep up the good work!

So if that was your official announcement, then CONGRATS!! I actually heard a little something down at Ruby's, but I wanted to hear it from you before I said anything. Your kids are adorable by the way. And I know what you mean about getting kids to eat. It is so hit and miss with Ashlyn, usually a miss.
