August Hot Spots

Life is finally back to normal. Thank the heavens life is going well for us! After the craziness of summer things are on a roll. I do believe God throws in little bumps to make us remember how much we are blessed and that He's the one in control! We are all in very good health, have a roof over our heads, food in our bellies and plenty of bounteous blessings to be grateful for!

If you look closely you'll notice our little man has a tooth poking out! Jack-jack has survived the first of many teething experiences. He has both of his bottom little teeth pushing their way up! Bella thinks it is pretty cool that she is growing the same teeth (her's are the adult teeth)! Jack-jack is my biggest 6 month old yet. He went to his checkup and he's enormous! 18 lbs 8 oz and 28 3/4". Let's just say whatever I am doing seems to work for him.

Bella began 1st grade this past week, August 15th. She is in Miss B's class. We sure do miss her while she's gone all day! Bella loves school, especially now that she has really grasped the reading. We have her read scriptures out loud at family scripture time and she does a marvelous job! The princess has started taking her lunches to school, I seem to overfill them! I am told that she doesn't have time to eat all the food in there or she'll be the last one in the lunch room :o)
Obi will be attending preschool this year at DSC. He's rather excited as Bella seems to be having all the fun without him! He is a great big brother and loves to help Rex and Jack-jack out. It has been fun to see how much he's grown as the big brother! Don't worry too much though I still catch him with his finger in his belly button every once in awhile!
Rex and Jack-jack adore each other! Jack-jack usually scrunches his face in caution when he sees Rex but no one would miss the large grin he always carries with him! Rex is becoming the over concerned child. He has started trying to help make sure Jack-jack is fed, but I don't think 6 month olds usually have a liking for yogurt jammed down their throats or carrot sticks to naw on! He is a tough little guy so he seems to recover from the extra affection rather well. Now if they would all just sleep a little longer at naptime I would have it made!
