Joseph is coloring again. He can entertain himself for hours with a few colored pencils and a piece of paper.
Sarah is getting really good at holding the baby properly. It also helps that he is not so tiny anymore.
I was trying to get a picture of little David smiling - which he does on occasion - because this week we discovered that he has a little dimple in his left cheek. You can almost see it in this picture. I thought he looked rather cute with his tongue sticking out too. Sarah is such an awesome big sister and I love how she looks with her hair short. She has been extra helpful for me this week. Today she helped Kathryn into her carseat and got her buckled when it was time to pick up Joseph from preschool.
Joseph is trying to show you (or the camera) his new haircut. It's VERY short in the back because at first he insisted that I only use the scissors to cut his hair because he doesn't like the sound or feel of the clippers. Well, that wasn't going very well...ahem...and I had to use the shortest clip to fix it in the back. It's still a little splotchy, if that's a word. The front looks a bit odd too because his hairline is not symmetrical in the front; it grows noticeably lower on one side of his forehead than the other. That's why we usually keep his hair long in front. But, I decided that he looks rather handsome with it shorter in the back and still long enough to part on top - kinda like his daddy. =)
Almost every day Sarah will choose a dress or a tutu to dance in around the house. She loves playing dress up and she enjoys twirling around while wearing full dresses, or in this case, a puffy tutu. Here they are trying to "strike a pose" for the camera. They had to hold very still because I was using the camera on my cell phone. Any movement = very blurry picture. That's why Kathryn is always fuzzy in the photos.
Sarah is so beautiful. She is tall and slender with long legs and a very out-going personality.
I'm going to have to lock her in the house in about 10 years.
I pulled out the baby toys today to see if little David was interested in them. At first he liked the rattle sounds and actually smiled quite a bit. Then when I grabbed the camera he stopped smiling. I think he doesn't like the look of the camera because never smiles when I'm holding it.
Those chubby cheeks...I just can't get used to them. Next Tuesday is his 2 month check up and I can't wait to see how much he weighs. At 2 weeks he was up to 8lbs 12oz. I'm guessing that he is around 11 pounds now. A friend at church guessed 12 pounds. He has grown so much faster than I thought he would and has completely lost that newborn look. Now, if only he could lose the newborn sleeping patterns! =)
