So obviously, by the lack of posts, things have been very busy since I've returned full time to work! My first week back was an emotional one to say the least. Being home with the babies in the morning was always my favorite time spent with them. They wake up smiling and I liked the idea of being the person they saw to start their day. Its hard not being there for that each day. Knowing Jacob is home with them each morning though settles me slightly however I tend to be a little selfish when it comes to them;) so I still wish it were me home instead!! haha...
Each of them are growing and accomplishing milestones each day. They are all able to roll over now- still have difficulty getting their arms out from underneath them but they are getting the hang of it. They reach for toys and excite themselves when they push buttons which make noise. When you talk to them they LOVE to talk back--especially Jade. She is going to be our little chatterbox!! You'll quickly see what I mean in the video below!
Everyone is slobbering like crazy too--still waiting for that first tooth to break through though.
The table we received from the family with the quintuplets has proven to be such a valuable item!! They are getting much more stable with sitting up and enjoy some time at the table playing with their toys. We have also noticed that they are starting to notice each other. Again, Jade especially...she will watch whomever is sitting next to her and talk to them or laugh hysterically.
Lexi is also keeping us busy with soccer and her new found hobby--lacrosse. Sunday she played soccer in Mansfield and won--scoring the first goal of the season too!! Her first lacrosse game was Tuesday--this is the first year for Brunswick to have a girls lacrosse team so its a learning experience for everyone. She plays with girls ranging from 4th grade to 8th grade so I was nervous how she would hold up physically against the girls but she did really well. Her team lost by a couple goals (I think that's what they are called in lacrosse??). It is a fun sport to watch and I like being outside of my comfort zone of soccer--I love that she is trying new things and meeting new girls. I feel that alone is worth the craziness it adds to our day of running her around.
