Three weeks

It is so hard for me to believe that Naomi is three weeks old already. She is thriving and getting bigger. She is still a peanut but to me she looks like she is getting longer and I just can't believe it.

So much has happened in the past three weeks that I don't know where to begin. We have had some adjustments that needed to be made but we are all doing well. Isaiah is doing well with having a new sibling but he is starting to get into the talking back phase and having to have the last word phase that it is driving me insane. He makes me laugh because he acts older than he really is.

Nathanael was not too fond of Naomi when she first arrived but now he loves to look at her and loves to give her kisses with Isaiah. They both enjoy giving her kisses and hugs. Nathanael has also had a growth spurt and is starting to look a little taller these days. His birthday is right around the corner in two months so we are thinking of ways to make him feel extra special without breaking the bank. Anyone have any ideas?

As far as Alex and I...we are doing well. Alex is still in Texas and I can't wait for him to be home already. He tells us he misses us dearly and we definitely feel that way about him. It will be nice to have him home again soon. I am a little exhausted but doing well. I finally got Naomi's crib situated to be her bed and transitioned Nathanael out of the crib into a twin mattress. Once Alex gets home I will have him get his bed together but he enjoys having his big boy bed. I have managed to stay busy but I am resting as well. My sister has been here helping me keep my sanity.

When I was little my mom would decorate the house with different Happy Birthday signs made with construction paper and balloons (with my name written on them). She would do it late the night before so I awoke to a decorated house as a surprise. I love it and want to do so with any kids i have. That and you can't go wrong with a homemade birthday cake. Even if its the boxed kind its special. :)
