Cairns kiddos kidding around

Well it’s been a great last 2.5 weeks. Luke’s been adapting well to being a big brother. He loves to help my with Charley – from wanting to hold her (all the time) to giving her kisses, from burping her to teasing her by taking away her dummy.

Charlotte’s up to 7 lb 5 oz – I had to take her in to check on the cold she caught from Luke (gotta start sharing somewhere!) – so that’s an increase of 7 oz since birth, but almost a full pound since we were discharged from the hospital. She’s settling in to something of a routine – awake most of the morning – followed by a long nap in the afternoon. Awake in the early evening, and then a short nap, followed by a bath, followed by sleeping surprisingly well at night. We hope the sleeping well at night sticks – but we’ve decided to just enjoy each night as it passes 🙂 Every few days I manage to have both of them nap at the same time – but inevitably, when one skips their afternoon nap, so does the other – it’s either win-win or lose-lose!

Here are some photos from the last week:

A happy big brother:

She smiles! (and that’s not wind! She screams when it is!)

The only photo I remembered to take when we went to Red Lobster for dinner. Both kids did great – Charley slept under the table in her car seat the whole time!

Luke LOVES his bike!

Charley giving her Daddy a big hug:

Tummy time (she hates it):

My Dad came over the other day – and Charley fell asleep in his arms (in a very awkward position!)

And she’s found her thumb!

Luke holding “Sha-shoh” or “my baby”:

    Such lovely photos. I love the one of Charley sleeping on your Dad’s knee!

    Love the pictures especially the one of Luke lying beside Charly and patting her on the back (that’s what it looks like to me 🙂 ). BTW what is Tim’s birthday pie? or is that even what it is?
