12 weeks

It's been 12 weeks since Penelope's been born and she is such a joy. We love her now ready smiles and "talks" that she likes to have with us. We are starting to find a routine and learning her little personality. She's starting to love to sit up and look around and especially keep her eye on Max and what he's doing. She's starts to squawk at him when he's around her too much.
She weighs a little over 11lbs so she's right where she should be to meet the "double weight by six months" that "they" say babies should do.
She is starting to grow hair finally and it looks like it may be dark or even a bit red. We'll see. She's been to the kids clubhouse twice at the gym and one time did great and the other terrible and she spent the whole time in the nursery during MOPS on Friday and was awesome. She sleeps 7-9 hours straight at night and will take 2-4 naps during the day ranging from 1-3 hours if Max doesn't wake her up.

I made Buckeyes on Saturday and made the mistake of leaving them out on the counter to "dry" next thing we know Max is having himself a Buckeye pop holding on to the toothpick and eating away. He was quite proud of himself.

All of a sudden Max is all about Legos. We've spent hours each day building over and over and over. I'm already tired of stepping on stray ones. But he's so proud of his creations.
He also is really loving to help me cook supper when he wakes up from his nap. He's been helping quite a bit stirring and things. Tonight he helped me roll out the dough for our Stromboli.

My Aunt and Cousin stopped by overnight last night on their way back to Ohio from Chicago and Max loved playing with Cailynn.

We're driving through the night tomorrow night to get back to Ohio for a little less than a week. I'm so not looking forward to the drive.
