Well, a scary thing happened last Friday evening. I went up to get Trevor after his evening nap. Russ had just gotten home. Jack was at the bottom of the stairs talking to me about what he wanted for dinner. I was not paying attention to what I was doing....I always tell Jack not to get over confident on the stairs....Anyway, I was 3 stairs from the bottom & stepped on the edge of the step & my foot slipped & I landed on my tailbone on the edge of the stair & bumped down the last 2 stairs onto the wood floor.....all this while holding Trevor. I was in a lot of pain...but could not even think about that until I knew Trev was okay. Russ ran over & took him & he was fine...I could not really catch myself since I was holding him, but I did get my forearm down to break a little bit of my fall apparently...I had a big rug burn & bruise to prove it. I stayed in bed all day Saturday with ice packs on my lower back & tailbone....I am soooooo thankful that Trevor was okay & that I did not break anything. 9 days later I am still very sore when I lift anything, but feel like I am on the road to recovery.

It looks like my little boy might turn out to be a ladies man :). He already has his 1st girlfriend. If you ask him who his girlfriend is he will tell you, "Bailey". She is a cute little girl in his MDO class & apparently she has been seeking him out for awhile. The teachers say she always wants to sit by him at chapel & story time & cries if she doesn't get to. They hold hands during chapel every day. They also do the see saw together all through recess time. I am a little worried I may have my hands full as he gets older.....

Today is Trevor's 4 month b-day! It has gone by soooo fast! He is such a good baby! He loves his Mommy, Daddy & big brother soo much! He is really paying attention to Jack now & giggles like crazy as Jack entertains him. I can still see the caution is his eye though when Jack gets rowdy...he still has that gear of being hit by a flying dino or monster. He enjoys grabbing my hair. He rarely leaves my arms without a handful of it. He is starting to drool...not sure if that means teeth are coming, or if it is just meaningless drool. Today at the doctor he weighed 15 pounds-13 ounces (75%), was 25 & 1/2 inches long (75%), and his head circumference was 41.8 (45%). They said he looked healthy & had met all the milestones a typical 4 month old should. As a comparison, at 4 months Jack was 14 pounds-14 ounces (45%), 25 inches long (55%), & his head was 42 (45%) in. around. So Trevor has Jack beat by 1 pound & 1/2 an inch. We will see how the battele continues as Trevor grows. I have a feeling he might be a little bigger boy than Jack??? So far so good with how Trev is handling his shots. I gave him Tylenol ahead of time this go round & he has been sleeping since we got home (3.5 hours & counting). I am keeping my fingers crossed he won't have a crying fit when he wakes up...my boys don't seem to handle the after effects of shots very well. Hopefully we will break that trend today :)

Since Jack was 20 months old he has been saying "FARSI" when he means to say "SORRY". "Farsi Mama" was a phrase commonly heard on a daily basis...until last week. He started saying sorry...it was a sad day for me! My little boy is growing up. He proceeded to tell me, "look at me when I am talking to you"...that, I did not appreciate quite as much :). Trevor is getting big too! He will be 4 months old tomorrow. He is giggling up a storm & is now sitting in his exersauser & jumper. He is such a happy baby & very easy going. He is sleeping 10-12 hours at night now consistently (finally). I am not sure how he went from only sleeping 3 hours at a time to 12, but I'll take it. My goal each day is for Jack & Trevor to nap at the same time. It works out sometimes...but other times not so much. Today, just as I put Jack down & was walking down the stairs to go lay down, guess who woke up. WAAAAAAAAA!!!! Tomorrow is Trevor's 4 month appt & shots. I'll post his stats tomorrow.
