Savannah is three-weeks-old now, and she sure is growing!
At her check up today, she weighed 9 lbs., 9 oz. That means she’s gained 25 ounces in two weeks. An ounce a day is normal, but Savannah gained nearly two ounces each day. She’s in the 95 percentile for weight, height, and head size. Here’s a recent photo:
Madeline is doing well and loves being a big sister. Of the three girls, I think she’s the one with the most spunk. I love her sweet personality. She’s tons of fun and is also incredibly smart. I can’t believe the things that come out of her mouth, and she’s not even two yet! Her birthday is one month from today, and I’m sure it will be a day filled with lots of Dora. (Madeline is a huge fan!) Here’s a picture of the two littlest sisters.
Kayla, our big girl, is doing great, too. She’s learning to read and write and is a great helper around the house. She and Madeline like to help me set the table at meal times. The other morning she tried to help by carrying the full Brita pitcher to the table. I had my back turned, but when I heard her say, “Mommy, can you clean that up?,” she immediately had my attention. I turned and looked and saw Kayla entering the dining room with the Brita pitcher in hand, water still pouring out. Good thing it was just water! It ended up under the refrigerator, in the cheese and produce drawers of the refrigerator, under the china cabinet and everywhere in between! Here’s a picture of Kayla, who we also call our Little Lion:
Aaron is doing well. He had been busy with his graduate classes. One meets Monday nights, and the other is a weekend class (four weekends in March and April). He loves his weekend class, and I won’t comment on the Monday night one. 🙂 Turning 30 wasn’t too bad, besides the fact that he became a little more clumsy. A couple days after his birthday he fell down our stairs, but thankfully he didn’t have any serious injuries.
And me? I’m doing great as well. My mom took 10 days off work to help with cooking and the girls. That was so helpful! Now I’m on my own. The days are non-stop busy, but as long as I focus on the blessings and not the challenges, everything goes well. It’s a joy and privilege to raise these three little girls, and I want to enjoy every minute of it.
