Staying Busy and Staying Warm!

The family is doing wonderful.  We are trying to stay healthy with all the bugs going around, and trying to stay warm.  As you have seen in some of the pictures we have had some snow but not a ton.  We are certainly OK with that!  Although Soph would like to see more snow.  So we have been bunkered inside and I think we have a couple more weeks of this.  So until then we are staying busy with inside projects and trying not to know the walls down.  Here's a run down of what's going on with the girls.  Kristen first and for most is doing wonderful as usual.  She is managing the girls and I like a Pro!  The way she pays attention to both girls and makes sure they are enjoying themselves but still learning is truly amazing!  She makes me proud to see her when she interacts with them.  Sophia is next, she is also doing wonderful!  she is still in school and she is also taking gymnastics again.  She is making major strides in Gymnastics!!  She has the heart of a competitor and it makes me proud!  She likes to compete and tries very hard at all that she does.  While Kristen and I both know and remind her that winning is not everything, it's very fun to see her throwing herself into gymnastics.  She is still being the perfect big sister to her little sister Nora.  More importantly, Sophia is also still performing extremely well in school.  Each time her preschool teacher sends home a report or any comments, it's all very good news for us to read about Soph.  We of course are very proud of her as well.  Lastly there's Nora... She is doing amazingly well!!  You will see some updated pics of her shortly.  But in short, she is growing and developing like a top performing Mutual Fund.  Everyday she is learning something else and doing something different.  We started teaching her baby sign language when she was 6 months old and now at 9 months old she is starting to respond with signs when she is wanting some things.  Namely, the "more" sign when she is eating food.  She has picked that up very well.  She still has not picked up the "water" sign but we anticipate it will come soon along with a couple others.  She is also crawling all over the place. She's been super active all with in the past 2-3 weeks.  It started off with the Army crawl and within a week it turned into full sprint crawling!  She is such a fun baby as well!  Very easy to attend to and like all Stewarts... She likes to eat! She is eating all kinds of fruit and Veggie's as well as Puffs, Chicken and anything else Kristen can make.  As you will see she it looking more and more like Soph, but still manages to keep her own look as well.  We hope you enjoy the pics and thanks for staying tuned and continually dropping in.  See you next time!

Guess who lost a tooth?  

So in this last picture you see the girls cleaning.  Soph is helping as she always is.  Nora is usually helping as well, but i think she may have been napping when i took this picture.
