Brenan Stats and Christmas Dresses!

This is the most recent picture I have of Brenan! I'll take some new ones soon!!
He had his doctor's appt. yesterday. He is 5 weeks 4 days and he weighs 13 lbs 11oz and is 25.5 inches long. He's a chubby little guy! I don't think he is as big as Keslie was though! He is trying so hard to talk and smile! His eyes smile and occasionally he can make his mouth do it too! His little noises are still mostly grunts but when he does coo it is SO cute!! He is still sleeping a ton and I have yet to hammer down a good schedule for him. He eats every 3 hours (ish) and sleeps in between! I don't worry too much about a strict schedule until my babies are around 2 months. I don't think they are ready for one until then! He still is a bit jaundiced. The doctor thinks it's just "breastfeeding jaundice" but I had to take him in for another heel prick today. He is the sweetest little man ever! The girls just love him (a little too much sometimes!)!

I took these pictures when he was 4 weeks old.

The girls got to wear their Christmas dresses last week! They both felt like princesses! I LOVE their dresses this year and I only paid about $10 for each one! I love EBAY!! Anika was not in the mood to pose! We got a couple normal ones and then the rest are her being a goofball.

She wanted Nana West and Grandma Kivett to see how it twirls!

And here is Miss Bodess:

Here is Anika's letter to Santa! The words are ALL hers - I was helping her with spelling at first and then I just let her do her own thing!
Translation: Santa Baby, I love Rudolph's red nose. Please bring me a pet. I will leave you cookies. Love, Anika West
And a couple random Keslie ones:

I loved everything about this post! I loved Brenan's chubby cheeks (is it possible to get so chubby so soon? You go little man!) Thomas is still a little skinny minny that I love! I loved his cute little upclose pics, especially the one with his mouth open. I loved the girls Christmas dresses! So cute! I will always think about the time we went to get Anika's pic and I ended up helping you get talked into that really expensive, but beautiful dress. Oops! I still loved it though. I feel sad, but I am not getting Katie a Christmas dress this year since she stays home from church with me anyway. I also loved your tree. I have always loved the way that you decorate for Christmas. I miss you. Merry Christmas!
