With Sara being so sick, it has been hard to do much. I feel like I am just going through the motions.
But, my kids don’t understand.
And Sara would want me to keep LIVING LIFE and being joyful. Moreover, her favorite posts have always been Elias and Adeline posts.
So, I thought I would share a little bit of our every day with the kids these days.
Adeline is doing really well at school. She eats about every 2.5-3 hours and always drinks her full bottle. Most days I nurse her on my lunch break, which is such a blessing. Her caregivers say she is always extra content after I leave.
At almost three months, Adeline has really been enjoying her Bright Starts play mat. She loves to look at the hanging toys and just starting swinging at them this past week. She is often entertained for more than 30 minutes.
Of course, as is often the case with older siblings (so I hear), Elias is way more interested in her toys than his. He loves to lie on the mat with her , as well as drive his big trucks under the arches. I love the bright colors and how plush the mat is.
Each morning we let Elias watch a “show” when he wakes up/hast breakfast. Lately, he has really been into The Tuneables, a new DVD/CD combo pack I was sent to review. From the press release: This new 30-minute animated DVD/CD series, sponsored by the Music Intelligence Project, takes a unique approach to music education. Featuring great animation, children are introduced to the magical world of Tuneville, where the delightful Tuneables characters encourage them to hear and sing tonal patterns in songs, develop their rhythmic skills, expand the range of their singing voices, and become immersed in the sounds and melodies of classical music. It’s really one of the most engaging and educational DVDs in our collection – I can’t recommend it enough.
Elias loves going to school every day. Every night, he tells us about his day and all the fun activities that he does. Last week he told us, out of the blue, that he loved chapel service. So sweet.
Elias seems to fall more in loved with Adeline every day. He hugs and kisses her all the time.
Bath time is also a highlight these days. Elias has always loved the bath tub, but now he equally loves helping me give Adeline a bath. He has to have his own washcloth for her and is so darn cute with her.
I love being a mom.
