8 Months!

We seriously cannot believe that 8 months have gone by since we've welcomed little Ian into the world!

Our friend, Nate, was dancing 'at' Ian.  It was followed by giggles and clapping.

Ian, at 8 months you:

~ are finally starting to crawl.  You've moved on from moving like and inch worm to the army crawl

~ would much rather be held that explore.  Well, that's MOSTLY true

~ are a cuddle bug.  You're our only one.
~ adore your siblings.  I swear I even heard you say "bra-bra" (brother).

~ are a ladies man.  Dude, it's the way you smile and turn your head that does it EVERY. TIME.

~ still have a bit of a clogged tear duct. I *really* don't want to have the docs fix it.....

~ don't eat food yet.  Each time you do you gag terribly.

~ according to the doctor you have enlarged tonsils.  We have yet to see if this will cause any issues.

~ have only gained a few ounces in the last few months but you've shot up 2 inches.  Perhaps you'll be the only tall one of the Bergren children?

~ are FINALLY saying "mama".  It melts my heart every time, even though I *know* you love daddy more.  

~ have given me a few hearty laughs.  Up until now, it's really been a bunch of chuckles.

~ will wake up, even if you are on the verge of sleep, if you hear the intro music to DS9.  You will sit straight up, watch the whole thing, then throw yourself back down when it's done.  Cutest thing EVER.

I can't wait to see what the next few months will bring.  Love you, little man!

Natalie is 5!

 My first born girl has reached the age of five and I'm not too sure how I feel about that.  She's getting so big and learning so much.

Katy came by to help us celebrate, too.

Natalie, at 5 years old you:

~ are as much 'sugar and spice' as you are 'snips and snails'

~ love to play with barbies as much as you do actions figures/heroes

~ enjoy watching X-Men, The Avengers and The Swan Princess

~ want to do school work like your brothers do

~ take advantage of every opportunity to color

~ have an interesting sense of humor

~ love playing with your brothers' friends

~ can be a naughty little girl - I think I have steam cleaned the carpeting in your room 4 times in the last 6 months, cleaned toothpaste from places I never should have, and have found SEVERAL different substances you've used to play 'tea party'

~ adore your baby brother and play with him all the time

Love you, baby girl!!
