March Twink Stats

Gracers has been walking more this week. The older kids have been competitive on who has witnessed the most consecutive steps. 10 steps is the most Mom can confirm, bragging rights of big brother swells the distance of her journeys at each telling.

Meekers has taken a few steps, but is generally more inclined to dive towards arms rather than walk. She cruises along everything and has an crawling speed.

Gracers has been sleeping through the night, Meekers did once this week. Bear still doesn't sleep all the way through the night as a 3 year old, but I am trying to be optimistic that 2017 will be the year of restful nights.

There Cannot Be Only One

My view everytime I am feeding only one baby and the other notices.

I guess our motto is tandem feeding or tears.

Coming to a Bookstore Near You!

My 7 year old is making how to books today. The back page has "coming soon" and listing his other books, currently out and up and coming. I haven't explained copyrights yet, which may effect things.

The instructions range from incredibly detailed to vague. His first book has the 1st step as opening the book. Step 2: turn the page and read all other steps. The next 3-5 steps deal with finding and gathering supplies, with a helpful note that it will be hard and some items might be mistaken as garbage. Also getting yourself a secret lair to keep the creations. Several items needed in the two books I have been allowed to read: a bobby pin, popsicle sticks, glue, a broken christmas light, and the top of a Yummy Tummy drink (have your mom/dad buy you one. Then drink it, but don't throw away the lid.)

We are showing his work to trusted family and friends first before pursuing a publisher.
