Our sweet Cove is already 3-months old and 17-pounds on the button! We have no idea where this big baby came from, amazing really since Morgan is the complete opposite with such a tiny frame and not an ounce of chub on the girl. She had swimming lessons this morning and is like a turtle on her back- an incredibly awkward munchkin, arms and legs thrashing about. The monkey likes to be in control, so I'm thinking this is a metaphor for her stubbornness. She just needs to let go and relax.
These past few weeks have been kind of nuts- I think its sunk in that Cove isn't a 'rent-a-baby' and will be sticking around. This is obviously cramping Morgan's style as she is beginning to act out for attention all the time, meltdown central. Not to mention a touch of terrible 2's...poor nugget. We're doing everything in her our power to give her the attention she needs, but somedays its hard like when Brydon works 12-16 hours and its just the three of us. Good thing Cove goes to bed at 7 bells on the dot. Morgan is a 9pm'er which actually works out nicely, since those last couple hours we can just focus on her.
Brydon's mom took her to the lake for the weekend, so she could get outside, have Nana all to herself and enjoy plenty of fresh air. I miss her, but its also nice to have some time with just Cove. Here are his latest pics. They're similar to the others but this will make it easy and fun to see how he's changed as the months fly by.
he's always fanning out his toes. Its so cute.
Auntie Erin got him this sweet itty-bitty owl
from the farmer's market in Banff.
Tuckered out from all those pictures!
I've been missing Morgan, so I took a few snaps of her
room and the things that remind me of her.
Piggy-bank castle from Nana. Morgan loves it.
