So it's been to long since we posted!

Tym is now getting very good at her bike with training wheels. They ventured on the sidewalk the other day!

On Friday I took Tym to the doctor to check out her ear. She was amazing. The doctor scraped waxout for 10 minutes or so and Tym hardly flinched. She could see 80% of the ear drum and it looked good. Ok'ed for swimming again! The doctor also took out 2 splinters Tym received ont he deck- that took another 15 minutes. And she hardly flinched again - she was awesome!

We have been going through a rough spot with her - she is 4, there is no doubt. We've heard a lot that what they are like at 4 is a window to their teens. OYE! She's going to bording school! She has been quite a handful with her attitude and such. But the next minute she's turn around and do something sooo sweet you love her all over again!

Lake is doing well - he's 18.5lbs now, and turns 5 months next week. It's amazing to watch him grow into a baby - no newborns around here anymore. He can roll both ways if you let him. he loves looking at books - especially the Dora one Tym got on Saturday. last week we had our first teething day with him. He cried for 3.5 hours straight until we gave him advil. Now we have our homeopathics all ready to go. He's getting fussy at the table - he wants to eat what we are eating. So much so that at matt and sarah's on Sunday he grabbed pork from my plate. We've given him some homeopthics by spoon and some breastmilk - he seems to enjoy the experience. So now we are on the prowl for a booster seat for him so he can sit at the table with us. He is also 'almost' sitting up on his own. It's amazing how quickly they grow up!!

last weekend we 'de-catted' our room and he seems to be sleeping better. Last night I slept upstairs with him to test it - and he was congested this morning. Lake is allergic to the cats! This makes us sad. Poor Belle is miserable - the bedroom was her domain.

Lake has very sensitive skin - and has excema around his ears and on his bits. It is starting to get better slowly - but he doesn't do good when he's in a prefold - the fitted diapers are much easier on his skin.

One last thing - Tym started soccer last weekend. It is amazing to watch her play soccer with her friends. You can see Meag's pride rise with each run. Our little girl is really growing up.
