The Magster

Maggie is now about one month old. She's rolled over twice (over achiever!) Last night she slept from 8 PM - 4 AM and then 5:30-8:30. Probably won't happen again for another 2 months. Maggie hasn't exactly been on a regular sleep pattern. Except for sleeping a lot during the day, and then wanting to be up between 12-5 AM. I guess that means I should go to bed when she does! But what about that laundry that's been sitting around for the last 5 days?? And dishes? And my corner cabinet project? And catching up on e-mails? And working ahead on school projects?

Just a few more cute pictures

What a contented little sleeper!
One of Owen's favorite toys-my mixing bowl-he likes to walk around and bomp into things!
Thank goodness for Grandmas! Here's Grandma Hudson reading with Owen. Both were able to come help out for a while...very helpful since Owen is at a very busy stage in his little life.

Here's Maggie

Dave, Owen and the back of Maggie's head (and Owen's stuffed doggie).
Here she is just a day or two old. She was born Dec. 18th, 2006. 7 pounds, 9 ounces. 20 1/2 inches long. She sleeps almost all day long. She wakes up every now and then to eat and get her diaper changed!
Here she is thinking about waking up.
Owen seems to be adjusting pretty well to having a sister. He likes to give her kisses and tries to play catch with her. We keep telling him that in a few months she'll be a little bit more fun. If you're patient enough, just wait a year and she'll be chasing you all over the house!

We got our first snow of the year yesterday. Dave and I both took turns taking Owen out in the snow. He wasn't too sure what to think about the cold, white, wet stuff . It was definitely something different for him to babble about when we finally came inside.

Owen's new words are doggie, thank you, and ball. He just continues to baffle us with the things he can do (especially when he chooses to do them). He now puts on his own bib, can go find his sippie cup, waves bye-bye, hugs and kisses, and is often just a blur of color while running from room to room.

Getting ready for Maggie

Here's Owen testing out the Moses basket. He used it from birth until about 3 or 4 months old. We're hoping Maggie will be able to use it a bit longer, until Owen's ready to switch over from the crib to a "big boy bed."
Of course, Owen had to make sure that Maggie's carseat is properly put together.
One more thing to check off the "to-do" list....painting the Mustang!

A quick update

Here's Owen enjoying bath time in his "new" tub.
I guess this is a little out of order...Owen is great help packing up our books.
Again-great help mowing up the gazillion leaves that fell in our yard!

A lot has happened since our last post....I started teaching at a new school (writing and journalism), we purchased our first house, packed and moved, unpacked (mostly Dave did that work while I worked in the evenings grading and slowly getting everything ready for my maternity leave).

Thanksgiving came and went by quicker than any holiday I ever imagined. We had Thanksgiving lunch (or dinner, if you prefer) at my brother-in-law's house, Darin. And then another Thanksgiving meal for supper at my folk's house. We also got in some Christmas cheer that evening exchanging gifts.

Before we knew it, Christmas was almost here, and then it was time to go to Methodist Hospital for the arrival of our newest addition, Margaret Noel Hudson.
