who is who?

Vivian Helene - 1 month and 2 months; Isa - 3 years!

Vivian! She is an amazing baby. Such a good sleeper. So beautiful. And we are teaching her how to sign milk...and she's learning it! At just over 2 months!

1 Month she was: 12 pounds (99th percentile), 23 inches

2 months she was: 14.1 pounds (99th percentile), 24 inches

Vivian is sleeping well at night, eating and growing well, and working hard at building up those muscles to hold up her head fully, sit and (eventually) stand. She hasn't yet fallen into any napping pattern, but we expect that to come in the next few months. We do notice that she's sleepier in the morning and wants to be awake in the late evening (6-9 pm) and then sleeps well in the dark throughout the night unless she has gas or a bowel movement to take care of.

Not to mention Isa girl, who turned 3 not long before we welcomed Vivian into the world. Isa's 3 year old stats:
34.6 pounds (84th %)
40 inches (96th %)
I knew she'd settle down in weight as she got older, but now she's turning into a little athlete! She's a tall and muscular girl. So unbelievably strong and very into moving her body through dance and sports.
Isa started school at Barbara Vick and will continue to go until we leave the country Dec 7. More on that here. She's also taking park district classes: sports, tumbling, art, soccer and basketball. She loves her park district classes and asks to go to them instead of school (I don't blame her!). We've been watching lots of shows in Spanish to prepare for the move, and she's been attempting to use some Spanish words. We are talking with her a lot about Uruguay, and she is excited to go there -- though she will miss a lot of people when we go.
