He has really got his head control down quite well and is doing well mastering his hand coordination. He loves batting at the toys that jingle back at him.
But I'm afraid he has only begun having his big sisters dress him up. Fortunately so far it has only been as Winnie the Pooh, a nice choice for a cuddly little bear.
He is a really good sport about it too.
He has also begun really getting those push-ups down. He is building those back and arm muscles and amazes me how quickly he progressing.
You just can't get anything done with such adorable, soft piggies staring at you just begging to be caressed and tickled!
James and I spent two days last week rearranging 3 1/2 of the upstairs rooms. Which was exhausting. And we still have 2 or so closets to sort out.

Her sleep routine is still a work in progress. She still needs a nap, but she won't go down for one easily and I can't spend hours getting her asleep by leaving Teresa unsupervised and Thomas crying. So I generally just wing nap time and if she conks out great and if she doesn't oh well and I try to have Thomas in his swing for her bedtime in case it takes a while. She has slept all night in her new bed though so she can do it.
During the last playoff game before the Super Bowl, Teresa got in our Elsa costume and put Let It Go on repeat and danced and spun and sang non-stop for 20-30 minutes. I was amazed watching her go. And it was especially priceless watching Brigid copy her.
For the feast of St. Agnes, Elizabeth's patron, we had donuts for breakfast. Yes, they are the Packers colors, but more importantly, green is Elizabeth's favorite color so it was very fitting.
I met my new dentist and got a much overdo cleaning. For the first time in my life I've been struggling with sensitive teeth, sensitive to both hot and cold. Turns out my teeth are fine, no cavities or decay or anything. But my gums apparently got a bit too much brushing exposing the root of a couple of teeth, so they've switched me to sensitive tooth toothpaste. He said it was a fairly common problem to have but it was new to me. Has anyone else ever experienced this?
Cecilia, Felicity and Elizabeth have all kept up their handwriting, spelling, math and english. Cecilia wrote a letter to her best friend in Maryland two weeks ago and a letter to her grandma last week. Felicity is a few pages behind in English but she has a wicked cold and is having trouble concentrating. She also just began learning roman numerals and multiplication this week.
In Religion we are going over the 10 Commandments and fairly in depth. We reviewed them all the previous week and focused on the first three this past week. I think it will be a wonderful prep for Felicity before her First Confession.
The past two weeks have been very busy from my dentist appointment to an AHG meeting, gym class, rearranging 3 rooms of the house, school and a check up for Cecilia but it all culminated in a birthday.
I hate to admit it, because I realize this post is really long, but that is just the surface of the past two weeks. Unfortunately many details are lost since I wasn't writing as the week progressed, but I will try to do better next week. Next week will be busy as well but that is another post. Blessed Weekend! :)
