If you have been waiting for an update....Sorry!!! It has been awhile. Life is good at the Axness household, but there is not a lot of time to sit on the computer. We are in full swing with everyone back to work and the holiday season among us. I think I will just give you a little update on each of the kids.
Reese is a "Cracker-Jack." That is what my grandpa used to call all the grandkids, so the tradition continues. She will correct you if you call her otherwise. As you can see by the pictures, she just performed in her first Christmas program at our church. She did a great job and made her presence known. She belted out the songs as loud as she could with a big smile on her face. Reese is very much aware of the holiday season. She love talking about Santa and truly believes that he is watching her every move, which has helped us out. We can say, "Who is watching you?" and she instantly does what she is suppose to. Her favorite thing to say these days is, "I want you to talk to me about it." She wants to know everything that is happening. Reese is still is gymnastics which is loves. I have seen improvements in her skills, which is fun see. She is always quick to point out when she has done something, "Miss Barb! I just did a monkey flip." She loves to be praised. She has been a pretty good helper around the house. She loves making Marcus smile and running around with Isaac. She has started to trace things and she aware of different letters. She is a social butterfly as well as a little on the bossy side, but I think that might go with 1st children.
If Isaac could run up and down the hallway all day, he probably would. He is on the go and seems to not run out of energy, EVER! Isaac has been going through a few changes. He is now in a bed. That was a little bit of a challenge, but I think we are good to go. He is finally getting used to it and seems to sleep just fine. Reese and Isaac are actually in bunk beds, so that is something kind of fun. Isaac has been teething.....not so fun, but I think most are in now. We are still working on talking. He says the basic words: duck, dada, stop, NO, yea, hi, bye. Things like that, but we are waiting for the floodgates to open and for him to start talking more! He will get very frustrated if you don''t know what he wants. Isaac loves cars, trucks...things on wheels. He also loves Mr. Potato and things that he can put together. And Isaac can eat! He is a bottomless pit. His favorite things are chicken nuggets, meat and potatoes, apple juice, and nutragrain bars.
Oh my little Marus. He is getting so big, so fast, which makes me a lot sad! He is a very happy little boy. He loves to play peek-a-boo, be in the exersaucer and watch his brother and sister play. He has tried a few different foods, but seems to be much more picky than Reese and Isaac. No rolling over yet, but is getting stonger and getting closer and closer to sitting up.
