J just got glasses! He'd been acting the same way as before his eye surgery - distracted, having a hard time focusing, tired and fussy. He hadn't complained about anything being hard to see, but then he hadn't before either, he had just compensated and wore himself out. Sure enough, at his checkup they said he is far sighted, has an astigmatism, and one eye is starting to drift out again, which is why he kept looking at us with his head tilted. Right now he is super excited about them (and Cadence is super jealous!). I think he's adorable!

This little girl is the sweetest thing in the entire universe. Not even kidding. She loves to smile, and talk, and churtle. She always wants to watch what’s going on around her, and just loves playing with toys or rolling around on the floor. She just started sitting propped up on her hands, rolling over, and wiggling across the floor to get stuff. However she happens to be is generally just fine with her - she delights in whatever happens to be around her. She has a contented little soul :)
|Num, num, tiger!|
|Ha - this face!|
|Here I go...|
|And now for the whole reason I rolled over - to chew on this delicious butterfly!|

My sweet buddy J is FIVE! He is our 'laid back' kid, who loves life, loves making people laugh, and is very affectionate. He's super excited about starting school this year, and chill about the distinct possibility of getting glasses next week. In spite of being miffed about going, he had a great time at his annual check-up, making all the nurses laugh by checking his muscles in every reflection we passed, and chatting up anyone who paused in his general vicinity. He's holding strong on his growth chart 12% for weight, and 15% for height. My little man - now if they measured hands, that might be a different story, with his bear paws. He also bumped up a Sunday School class, and is loving his Aunt Kari time!
