Default Update on Julien & I

Hi everyone, I am never here anymore. I can't remember the last time I played on the computer for me. Sigh... I miss being connected to you all and knowing what is going on with the babies. Was able to browse some of the posts and the kids are BEAUTIFUL!!! So thought i'd give a little update and hopefully post a picture soon.

Julien is 17 months now. He continues to be a BIG boy.
He is 30# and last I measured I think 33" He is wearing 2 and 3 toddler clothes. He has a head full of dark brown soft curls and the biggest dimples. Those are the 2 things people comment on all the time. He is so sweet and also knows what he wants! And phsically he is SO strong. Yikes. He is doing so many things earlier than Alex 1) because I think he learns from Alex and 2) he is just so much bigger that he can do things and reach things that took Alex longer to get to. He can grasp most things on the counter and we have to be vigilant about pushing things back ...especially knives. I have grabbed many knives out of his hand. He runs laughing from me. I'd laugh too if it wasn't so dangerous.

He is a great sleeper. He naps so well, sometimes up to 4 hours! It is such a big deal for me as Alex fought naps. I've been lucky that both boys sleep through the night well. He is making the transition to his new daycare well. He'll be starting there 4 days a week in 2 weeks. I stay home with him 1 day a week. My DH would like me to put him in full-time and allow myself a day to relax but I'm resisting. I know this is our last baby and I want to be with him as much as I can. And I also know that it is difficult for me to allow myself time for me. I said to DH today...what the heck would I do with myself all day? He said, "um, relax, do something fun, sleep, whatever you want." Cook husband I have! I see a lot of women struggle with this and DH has noted that men don't "usually" feel guilty about doing things for themselves, but we women are often socialized that it isn't okay. Hmmmm....

I have been super negligent about pictures for Julien. I have so many on teh computer but very few printed out. And he is not always the easiest child to photograph as he is constantly moving! He isn't thrilled about my picture taking normally either . So, I hope to post one this week here.

Hope you are all well. And your boys & girls are just so adorable.!

Ahh, sounds like he is doing so great. Wonderful to hear from you Laura.

I find the same thing as you that Bradley does things so much faster being the second child and he is also, so much bigger than Ben was at this age.

Can't wait to see pictures and would love to see you around more often

great to hear from you Laura and thanks for the update on Julien...sounds like he is thriving
Lucy is a big girl and quite tall and is using this to her advantage too
I'm constantly chasing after her to take something out of her hands

Look forward to seeing some new pics of Julien.
