Here is Joshua's costume from yesterday when I went to get the kids in the morning. He was being an astronaut. :)

Ellie has a buckle um... Obsession, I think that might be the right word! It all started with the buckle on Lanie's carseat. We used to tell her not to touch it because we didn't want her to pinch her fingers. She kept pushing it, so we decided she could learn the hard way if she really wanted to. Is that bad parenting? ;) Now, I only regret it because every time I go to place Lanie in one of her several infant apparatuses, I have to fumble with the buckles while cradling her bobbling head! Bouncy seat? Buckled! Swing? Buckled! Ellie even buckles her own carseat before she climbs into it!

Skin strugs

Lanie has had a rough time with skin care over the past weeks. Her eczema got so bad that she needed an oral steroid for several days. That was a rough week! Thankfully, we know how to handle it now, and I will be super diligent to avoid getting to that point again!

Lovely Lanie

I forget how quickly these first months fly. Lanie is 3 1/2 months old, and she is so much fun! She is all smiles, and she rolls onto her stomach from time to time. She is quite the extrovert; she loves catching the gaze of anyone nearby, and she is extremely aware if said person attempts to inch away from her. Lanie only likes to sleep in her bed, and when she ought to sleep in her carseat on the go, she is only content to face outward while being held and watching the world happen around her. She is very cheerful, and she thinks her siblings are fun!
