Oh babies you are so good at recognizing your mom and dad's voice now. You were at your great aunt Tracie's this weekend and you were passed around like a ball. Everyone wanted to hold you and watch the sweet coo's you used your voice to produce. The sweet smiles always precluded that sweet baby talk. When mommy or daddy would talk you would turn your little heads to see where they were. Just needed to connect with your security in a room full of strangers.

You are growing so fast you are not getting to wear half your clothes. Jakers is growing the fastest. He is going to be nana's line backer if he keeps going.

Nana got to share in feeding you your first food, cereal. You gobbled it up like pro's. Now you are eating your cereal with a little applesauce mom said. Soon you will be on baby food and not taking as many bottles a day. You will be getting 3 meals a day and milk supplemented. Mommy is going to save you some food while she is away in Michigan. You won't need as much as you need now. You will be eating 3 times a day.

I am so proud of your mama. She pumps milk for you all day long. She spent the night with me, we had a girls night because she had to go to the Duluth office the next day. She would pump and pump and out would come your breakfast, lunch and dinner for the next few days.

She has really given you all a mother can give in every aspect of the word. She loves you so much and would lay down her life for you. She told me the other day that she would. She now has a taste of why a mama bear is so dangerous when she has cubs. Mama bears will always protect their cubs to the death if necessary.

Your daddy is doing such a good job of staying home and taking care of you guys. He loves his babies to pieces. He is the protective mommy too. You all are good babies and are such a joy to keep and be around. Sometimes one of you may have a tummy ache and cry but you always go back to being happy loving babies after it is over.

Well I won't get to see you this weekend, daddy isn't going to get to go on his camping trip but I will be with you in spirit. I will see you at the beach. I can't wait to show you off in front of my friends. Tell mom to bring your bumbo seats so you can all sit up and entertain us.

I can't wait for you to crawl and sit up. Nana's works out so she can sit on the floor and play with you. She is losing weight so she can be on your level at playtime. Don't need a nana with knee replacements and can't get down on the floor. Nana doesn't want to ever miss a play opportunity with her babies.

Gotta go and get back to work now. Love you to pieces.
