 I have been slamming a lot into posts lately because I really only want to remember special moments and pictures. It is just easier to put it all in one post for the week right now. Life is just a tad busy and I am just a little sleepy. Multiple nights this week I was up for some reason since around 3:30am, so I'm pooped.

Jeremy and his 3 kiddos. 

Jensen's first nap outside in the stroller.

Haven hopped in his crib for some love.

Jensen cuddling his tiger.

This little one turned 4 months old this week. He was 13.6 lbs and 25.75 inches at his appointment this week. His weight growth curve came down a little, so his Dr. was a little worried. We are trying to figure out if it is his reflux, my supply, or something else.

This morning all 4 of us were doing some tummy time.

We had a bunny visit us. These pictures are for Aunt Punk. She sent Jensen this sweet little romper. He was so cute in it.

Easter Party

We hosted the 3rd Annual Easter Party on Friday. We loved having a variety of our friends over to make a craft, eat a snack, play, and have an egg hunt. Haven is a party girl so she loved having our friends over. Jovie did her own thing most of the time. Jensen slept through the whole thing.

A little about Jovie

Jovie has a big personality. She is super silly. She likes to entertain. She likes to jump. She doesn't cry going to Sunday school anymore and she will tell you that. She usually talks in 6-7 word sentences which baffles most people. She could have a really long mullet because I already cut off 4 inches of the back of her hair and no I didn't cut her bangs. That is as long as they have grown so far. She has just started to pay attention to her brother for the last month, as you can see from these pictures. She repeats everything that Haven says and does. Literally. Everything. She wants Daddy to "stay with her." She is a very good hugger and squeezer. She even grits her teeth she hugs so hard. 

She sings lots of sweet songs all throughout the day. Her favorite right now is "Praise Ye the Lord, Hallelujah." (Ha de you wa) She will do anything to prolong bed time. She really doesn't like going to sleep at night, but she will ask to take her nap and goes to sleep quickly during the day. She has just started realizing that she can fuss and cry when she wants something or doesn't like something. We used to be able to trade her or change the subject. She has really good manners: bless you, excuse me, excuse you, thank you, no thank you, have a nice day.

I think she will be ready to potty train soon because she tells me that she has gone in her diaper sometimes and grabs her diaper. She has loved playing with blankets recently and talking about boobies and poopy. Yikes. She gets her little feelings hurt easily.

She is two years old. No question about it.

Jensen has been sucking his fingers the last few weeks. It is so cute and really loud at times. He really hasn't taken a pacifier much at all lately. Hey, fingers are more convenient!

Time is flying

These weeks are going by so fast and I honestly don't even know what all we have been doing. I haven't even taken many pictures. Last week, I took the kids to Discovery Place Kids and the mall. Haven was sick for a few days with a bad cough and fever. Jovie has entered fully into her second year with loud yells and running from her parents. She learned how to hold up two fingers today for the first time. She had just been holding her hand up with contorted fingers. Jensen is on meds for reflux. They seem to be helping some. He is still nursing and sleeping like a champ. He woke up a few times in the night last week, but has slept the last two nights all the way through. He definitely has established a long afternoon nap and we are trying to figure out his morning one. 

Here a few pictures from the last week.

Daddy and the babies

Jensen is now bathing in the big tub with his sisters. He cried so hard in the baby tub, but seems to love this.

After our niece Bethany's birthday party, Haven crowned Prince Jensen.

Haven wanted a picture with him in their crowns. Her hair was a pretty big from being up in a bun for the ballerina birthday party. She loved learning ballet moves.

Practicing his least favorite activity, tummy time.

Haven asked to hold Jensen this morning and they were both happy for a while. She is good helper. Jovie will ask to hold him but it literally lasts 5 seconds.
