In the past few weeks Jesse has graduated from the swing to the "Bumbo" chair and the exersaucer. He has gotten such great control of his hands and rolls all around the floor playing with toys. He tries to grab anything in our hands when we are holding him. And at 5 months, he has been in 6 to 9 month clothes for a few weeks. Still refuses a bottle even after trying multiple days this week (and still no pacifier). The picky eater has gotten even pickier in that he will not eat store bought baby food. I started him on homemade stuff and that is the only way he will eat it now. Can you believe it?! But oh the dimples make up for everything.
And this little princess turns 3 in October. At 3, she is still way below her peers in weight and height so we were super amazed today when she begged us to pull Asher's tricycle out of the shed, plopped on, and peddled away. Asher got this tricycle for his 3rd birthday and it still took him about 4 months after that to get the hang of it. Anna can barely reach the peddles and now speeds around the parking lot happy to not have to run next to the older kids riding their bikes anymore.
