Watch out, kids, there's a new crawler in town! Meadow will be 8 months next week and is very happy to be on the move. Cheryl and I get a kick out of comparing her to Steven-- we think she's going to be busy like her older cousin and the fact that she started crawling at the same age Steven did (to the week now that I looked it up) reinforces that theory. She's growing so fast!
Steven loves Meadow but is still working on saying her name. He usually settles for "Baby," but he doesn't skimp on the hugs and kisses. Meadow gets lots of love from Steven. He does pretty well being gentle but every once in a while with get on top of her for a smothering hug- she takes it in stride though. Yesterday was really the first time I've seen him try to play with her; he is showing her how to stack the cups. Steven and Saige also share a love for Elmo and were happy to share a seat in "Elmo Chair." We are so blessed to live around so much of our family. The girls are more like sisters to Steven than cousins, and we're adding another baby to the bunch. Charlton's sister, Jenn, is due the beginning of February and we are excited to add one more to the family next year. Although Steven loves the girls, he wants to put in a request that Aunt Jenn have a boy because he's starting to feel a little out numbered! Hi to Mimi, Popo, Aunt Jenn, and Uncle Evan who are on vacation!
