a new bed... plop!

since audrey's been crying and screaming in the middle of the night and needing daddy to go in and sleep in her room with her, we decided to have her try out her new princess toddler bed. you like it... but you've fallen out several times already. you sleep just like daddy.. tossing and rolling all over the place. and once you fall, you don't like going back in the bed.. and end up sleeping on top of daddy!

spencer - you've slept over 5 hours straight these past 2 nights! i hope that's a permanent thing! you're just about 12 weeks old.. heidi says rex started sleeping through the night at 11 weeks.. and i hear that sleeping 5+ hours straight is considered sleeping through the night.. so there you go! ;-)

spencer is 2 months!

and you weighed in at a cool 14 and a half pounds! little audrey didn't weigh 14 pounds until she was 6 months old! you have been sleeping relatively well these past couple of days.. since you got your shots at the doctors. audrey slept super well after getting shots as well... or is it that we now have you swaddled, sleeping on a vibrating bouncy chair, and playing highway sounds to you all night? you'll give me a 3-4 hour stretch.. then about 2 hours and 2 hours.. which basically takes me from 10 at night til 8 in the morning. you sure are fussy from about 7pm til 9pm tho.

audrey - you are super cute... but super high maintenance too.. you love wai-po, and drag her to play with you all the time.

Spencer's longest sleep stretch so far...

not yet 8 weeks old, and you slept 4.5 hours last night - yay! but after that you were up every hour or so... but then after you woke up, you took a 2.5 hour morning nap! you've been sleeping lots lately.. hope it's not because you are sick.. daddy's been deathly ill.. he stayed in bed and slept for practically 36 hours straight!

audrey - we went to art class at gymboree today to try it out... you wouldn't even pick up the paintbrush! and you would't touch the play-doh... you hate getting your hands dirty! :-)

the kids are sick..

audrey's been sick for about a week already.. we missed your mandarin class.. and haven't been to gymboree all week! poor little thing. but you love, love, love playing with wai-po.. so much so that you often go to her to play rather than mommy and daddy. i think that this 18 month to 2 years old stage is the *bestest* time. you are so cute.. you totally understand everything we say.. and you love getting attention by showing off your little tricks... rowing a boat, shing nian hao, dancing to the wiggles...

spencer... this last week was your sixth week.. they say peak fussiness happens at 6 weeks... so i'm waiting for things to start getting better.. but they just seem to be getting worse! maybe because you're a bit sick.. we used the reflux medicine for the first time.. it seems to calm you down.. sometimes you just spit up so much.. and other times you don't spit up much at all. and you have this typical evening fussiness that we didn't have with audrey. you cluster feed from like 6pm til 9pm.. you fuss.. you get all aggravated during nursing.. yet you nurse constantly during these three hours... you have lots of gas.. lots of burping and farting.. you sleep in a swing and bouncy seat at nights... i sure do wish you would start sleeping better... you are pretty regular though.. you typically sleep at 10am.. and 1pm.. 5pm... and of course there's the evening fussy period.

right now you are asleep on daddy, and we're watching tv.. that's what happens every night... :-)
