Killean is turning into a very smiley boy. He's a pretty happy baby. Until yesterday, we had only heard good laughs out of him in his sleep. A couple of time we were holding him and he just started to belly laugh. The best we could get out of him when he was awake was a little chuckle or a "huh" and that's about it. Yesterday though, he started to laugh when we finished nursing in the afternoon. I dont' know what was so funny, but something struck him as funny so he laughed. Then we were watching Rowan play the drums and saying "bang" and THAT was hillarious. Laughing and laughing at our brother. It was awesome to hear.

He's currently going through a growth spurt I'm sure of it. He's eating more frequently at night so I'm guessing he's working on growing some more. Trying to keep up with his big brother I guess =)
Rowan...oh yeah, there's another kid in the house.
Rowan is staying ever so busy. I have felt like I've put him on the back burner a lot more lately-which I knew would happen. Babies just need a lot more attention and he's more self sufficient. Generally he does fine. Sometimes though, you can tell he really misses being an only child. He will insit on sitting in my lap while I'm nursing Killean. He won't want me to read bedtime stories or rub his back at night if it means Killean will be with him-he'd rather have me go be with Killean and dad read books and rub back. He's adjusting though-as we all are. And he definitely loves his brother. He likes to see him and is pretty tender when Killean is sleeping. He's a two year old though, so sometimes when Killean is sleeping it's more fun to pull on a leg or tickle him than let him sleep.
|"Rowan love Thomas"|
Rowan's current obsessions are: Thomas and friends, Polar Express, train tracks (catching a theme here?), and Play-Doh. He will stay entertained by Play-Doh for an hour if we let him. We have to watch lots and lots of Thomas everyday. And the other night? We had to sleep with our Henry and Thomas toys. We still also love our pirate toys and our puppies. When we went to visit Santa, we asked him for a puppy costume (thank goodness Santa lives in the day of Amazon). Rowan's a smart and sweet little boy who continues to amaze us with all he can do and all he is.

|Lesson learned:If mom goes to work on laundry while Rowan takes a bath, all bath toys will end up in the bath tub|
|Fascinated by a new toy that jiggles when you pull it.|
|The jumper is much more exciting at 2 than it ever was at 9 months or so|
|Merry Christmas from my littlest elf!|
