this big brother loves his little sis....

We really couldn't ask for things to be going better. Jackson is all about helping with his little sis. Although you gotta keep your eye on him. He loves holding her hand, watching her sleep, and giving her kisses.
oh and you can't forget the Hiya bebe...that comes out of his mouth almost every other word.
Too cute. the bottom picture is of this: I ask jackson where's the baby and he did this and said baby. We have also, well Jackson has, learned to say please. He signs it...by rubbing his belly and saying peezzz. So adorable. It could melt the hardest heart. he had a meeting with the nutritionalist the other week and we have evened out his height to weight ratio. We are now in the 75 % instead of the 95 %. So much better. He is up to 29 and a 1/4. We have grown 2 inches since we got out of the cast...which is amazing. We have started cutting molars...yipppppeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. Let's just say Dad and Jackson aren't getting much sleep these days. I think we have found at least three teeth that are coming in all at once. He even started drooling last night. Adrian said he carried a kleenex with him, because it freaked him out when the drool would land on his hand as he was crawling. Wish I could have seen this, because it is hard to believe just hearing it...and I think i would have laughed my head off. your proabably wondering how in the world, with a kid who doesn't let anything in his mouth, we know he has teeth coming in. Well we went to Orland and met Kara and Delaney on Father's day for another Myofacial therapy treatment. It went really well. they were able to get in his mouth to do some therapy. He wasn't quite resistant at first, but once he let them...things went very well. I can't explain this therapy very well. But I can say it has made a big difference in Jackson and that is all that counts at this point. We see great things happening after every visit.

As for Avenlea...she is up to 5lbs 1.5 ounces, which was a 7 ounce weight gain in 6 days....we couldn't be happier. We are working well into complete breast feeding. I have to say mom's that have to pump all the time, should be given a grand prize..they are super moms. I can't do it. Hats off you all you mom's that go back to work and pump to keep your kids on breast milk...
She has also grown a little over an inch and a half. Which means bye, bye to all the preemie clothes. She still swims in newborn sleepers but the little newborn outfits are mighty cute.
I will leave you with this picture of my three favorite people...taken on father's day. THis is one happy father. We are so blessed to have two great kids and who knew...he would be celebrating father's day this year with two kids. :)

Adrian's arm looks about 6 ft. long in the last pic.
