Cheetah IS Bryns' favorite color!

Saturday morning soccer games. 

Last Saturday night, we got to eat at Ruth's without kids to celebrate Chris's birthday (a week late) with the Rowdens!  

Bryn falls asleep almost every afternoon when waiting to pick up Hollyn in carline. 

Drew is happy sitting in the high chair! 

Lots of tummy time.

And sleeping on Mommy time. 

Silly picture before school. 

Fun with the Face Swap App! 

14 weeks old! 
Drew's legs are sticking out of his carrier already!

Saturday afternoon, after Bryn's dance rehearsal, Hollyn went to a birthday party for her friend Elyssa in her class at Princess Party Palace NWA .  

My twins at Hunter's birthday party Saturday night. 

Sweet napping boy

Recital Week

Bryn's Spring Dance Concert was last night!  It was a busy week full of rehearsals!  

Tuesday Night: Technical Rehearsal and Costume Fitting

 Thursday night: Individual and Class Pictures

 Saturday Morning: We had to be there & ready by 9:30.  Group Picture & Stage Rehearsal

Sunday: Call time 3:45, Concert 5:00
Took this picture before leaving the house!

We got to the church around 3:45.  Our dressing room for the tots and tiny tots was in Atrium 2 this year!  Much better than with ALL the girls in the choir room (over 140 dancers and their moms)! 

 Chris sat outside the room, so I could dress Bryn & feed Drew before going to the Worship Center to get a seat.

Visit from Uncle John

Chris's brother, John flew in last Thursday (7th) from Australia to meet Drew for the first time and to be here for Chris's birthday on Saturday.  

Birthday Breakfast at Pressroom before soccer

He stayed here until Sunday morning, then rented a car to drive to Piggott to see family, flew from Memphis to Tampa for a surprise visit, then back to Arkansas this Thursday, since he had a roundtrip ticket from XNA back to Australia.

He stayed up late working on Australia time, so he was very tired when he got here... Bryn wanted to sit with him, but kept getting upset when he would fall asleep!
 Friday night, we went to Flying Fish, then got ice cream on the Bentonville Square.

 A little Go Fish and drinks before bed!
The girls loved having him here and wanted to play with him non-stop!

Drew: 3 Months

D is 3 months old today!  
  • 14 lbs 13 oz (68th percentile)
  • 24.75 inches (76th percentile) ... if we are right. 
  • Size 2 diapers
  • 3-6 month clothes
  • Gets tired around 7 or 8.  Naps in his rocker until we change his diaper, swaddle him, and I feed him around 10.  Sleeps until around 7, sometimes 8:00! 
  • Eats every 2 hours, sometimes goes longer if we are out and he's in his carrier
  • Is really alert and more interactive lately.  
  • His arms and legs move so much when he's laying on the floor! 
  • Does a lot of "talking!"  Likes to stop eating, and looks up at me and starts talking!
  • Seems like he's going to start rolling over soon.
  • Has lost almost all of his hair on the top of his head! New hair (blonde?) is already growing in. Still has brown hair (with red tint) in the back! 
  • Went 5 days at the end of March without pooping! (Absorbing all the nutrients from my breastmilk?) 
  • Bryn asked if we could permanently change his name to "Drewf" Haha!  She always has a different nickname for him! 
  • Is about to outgrow his Swaddleme velcro swaddles, so we just ordered a large Swaddleme Wrapsack, where his arms can be in or out.  

He's growing!

My triplets all at 3 months!
