Ten on Tuesday.

1. She wears this dress no matter what. If it's 70, if it's 85. If it's scooter time or naptime. She loves it.2. My family one bedtime. Kids bathed and clean and with time to spare. Notice I say one bedtime, because usually this is not what bedtime looks like at all. It's chaos. Alla only wants Mommy to do her lotion but Mommy's feeding Fisher. Fisher is ready to nurse and go to sleep and then suddenly he's wide awake and not ready to sleep at all. Mommy + Daddy are also wanting to clean up the kitchen so that we don't have to do that after the kids are in bed and we're trying to enjoy one peaceful hour or so of relative quiet. 3. But on this night it looked like this and I like it in black + white, too.4. Look who's sleeping with his lovey and loving it. Sans swaddle much of the time. You hand it to him, he inserts fingers into mouth, holds lovey with other hand, and curls his little body around it. So darn adorable. Being his lovey pimp seems to have paid off.
5. Her pool may never be the same. Yep, that's Ajax.
6. Someone got a nice little turning-four-months-old present: a used-by-big-sis exersaucer! Next up, the five month activity: swinging!
7. Can't wait to see which toy he likes best. Alla favored the elephant.
8. This seems to be his favorite so far. 9. Speaking of four months old, he went in for his appointment today and is officially 17 pounds 4 ounces. And 28 inches! I had to go back and look at Alla's baby book to compare four-month stats. Don't know her height but she wasn't 28 inches til 8 months. She was 18 pounds 3 ounces at 4 months - wow, almost a whole pound heavier! So definitely he's focusing his growth on height!
10. Alla has a new favorite show, which we were turned onto because of the books. Charlie and Lola is absolutely the most adorable show ever. Go to the library and check out all of Lauren Child's books.

Yay for the exersaucer! Ours served us well for 6 years. It was one of the best investments we ever made. The girls love Charlie and Lola. It's a great show.

I won't even go into my "tiny" children sizes. Just hope my boys are taller than Alla, but looking at me, they don't have a chance. The Ajax is awesome.

Oh, hooray, I had TOTALLY forgotten about the exersaucer. Guess who is getting one for his 4 month birthday on Monday? I get so many good ideas from you. :) His 4 month pics are beautiful. Mini-Ron.
