Noah is 3 Months Old

Seriously, where has the time gone!
Noah is such an easy going, calm, content, and happy baby. He can be a bit fussy during the evenings, but is sleeping great at night so I don't mind much.
I don't know how much he weights or his stats.
He is wearing 3-6 mo clothes. Size 2 diapers.
He is nursing about every 3 hours during the day. He is content and happy for about 30min after nursing, laying on the ground kicking and talking up a storm. Sometimes he takes a long afternoon nap. He has been sleeping through the night for a good 2 weeks giving us at least 8hours between feedings. The last few days he has been giving us 10-12 hours. I am almost getting a full nights rest, though I still feel like I could sleep for days.
He is finally taking a bottle well. It took about a week of a bottle a day to get him to take it without crying and fighting for an hour.
He has rolled over 3 times from front to back.
He loves the swing and the bouncy seat.
He sleeps on he cradle in our closet.
He is just sweet as pie and cute as a button. We wouldn't trade him for the world and love him more than anything.

Evie's surgery went great. We had to wake up early and Evie did great waiting for an hour. She just wandered up and down the hall. Everyone commented on how cute she was. She was happy when the nurse took her from me. They say as they took her into the OR, she was just looking around, no crying or fussing, until they put the mask on her. The surgery went great, as planned. They put tubes in both ears and removed her adnoids. I got to go back and hold her as she was waking. Again she did great, better than expected. She did cry of course but mostly just a whiny cry and not the unconsolible kind of crying the nurses prepped me for. The worst part was getting her into the car seat, she did not want me to put her down. When we got home, she was still a bit clingy, good thing Dad was there to hold her while I fed Noah. A little bit more snuggling and by about noon, she was playing and back to her normal self.
Today she has been a bit more fussy. I gave her some Tylenol today thinking she might be hurting a little.
Overall it has gone smoothly. We are doing antibiotics for 10 days and ear drops for 5 days. Then hopefully we will be done with antibiotics for a long time!

1 1/2

Our Evie girl is now 18 months old. I can hardly take it, the time is flying by.

Our baby girl is growing up. She is having her first surgery on Tuesday to place tubes in her ears. She has basically had an ear infection since December, been on antibiotics 4 times, and still has fluid in both ears. I think this is going to be harder for mommy than her.
Little bit more about Evie:
Height: 29.75 inches (3rd %tile)
Weight: 23lbs 4oz (55th %tile)
Teeth: 4 on the top, 4 on the bottom with 2 bottom molars
Words: uh oh, dada, kitty kat, jakey, baby
Favorite foods: pears, strawberries, pb&j, waffles, rasins/crasins, animal crackers, broccoli, cookies, treats
Favorite toys: legos, anything she can climb on, a cup and anything she can put in it
Favorite things to do: be held by daddy, be swung around upside around, play ring around the rosie with Jacob, play peek-a-boo
Favorite books: ten little fingers and toes, I love you through and through, jamberry
Favorite tv shows: baby einstein, cedarmont kids
Evie is a great big sister. Noah gets more kisses than anyone. She loves playing with Jacob and wants to do everything he is doing. She is a bit of a drama queen and will throw a tantrum anytime she doesn't get her way. She doesn't have many words but babbles quite a bit.

2 1/2

Our Jacob is now 2 1/2.

Where has the time gone. He is definitely becoming a little boy leaving the little toddler behind. Jacob is very busy. He comes running out of his room every morning and fate every nap. He is a very sweet big brother. He mostly plays well with Evie and likes having her around except when she gets into what he is playing with. He is gentle with Noah, concerned when he is crying, and asks to hold him occasionally. Jacob always keeps us on our toes as he can do more and more (get into more) each day. He still loves to laugh and is smiley and happy most all the time.
Here is a little bit about what our boy is up to:
Height: 35.25 inches (40th % tile)
Weight: 29lbs (40th %tile)
Favorite food: strawberries, pears, pb&j, mac & cheese, broccoli, cheerios, waffles, cheese, treats
Favorite toys: shape puzzles, painting, cars
Favorite things to do: play outside, ride an elevator or escalator, help, read books, watch tv
Favorite books: mom and dad are palindromes, cars and truck and things that go, the bunny book, jamberry. He likes pretty much all books.
Favorite tv shows/movies: any Leapfrog video, curious George tv show and movies
Jacob knows all the colors, all the letters, all the letter sounds, can count to 10, almost 20. He loves to climb, jump, dance, and sing. He loves being with his sister. When he is playing with something that he doesn't want her to to get, he takes a toy and shoves it at her and says "play with dis Ebie".
