For your viewing pleasure.

Right, so here are some NEW pictures of what the kiddies look like now. I've got a stockpile of pictures involving various aunts and uncles and grandmothers, too, so expect those shortly. Or sometime. Hopefully shortly, but no guarantees.


Lottie at 12 weeks old (that would be on Wednesday April 9th, folks). She broke out howling about half a second later, so that's why she looks so concerned.


Jim fell asleep on the couch. He really ought to just accept that he still needs a nap.


Noah and Jim performing one of their many acrobatics routines.


Lottie loves standing like a people. You can tell by her face she feels all kinds of impressive.


Pajama-clad Jim being adorable for the camera. I cropped out most of the messy floor, aren't you glad?


Lottie is the happiest smiliest thing I ever met. Jim was always more stoic - kind of the strong silent type. Lottie, on the other hand, is extremely talkative and smiley and always sociable.


Did I mention that she can say 'm' now? 'Cause she totally can. "Mimimimimimimimi" is the word of the day.


Okay, now back to giddiness and joy.

Lottie at Five Weeks.

Finally, almost caught up. One week to go! Here's Jim at five weeks, for your comparing, pleasure. I probably could've picked a more flattering picture of him, huh.


On the other hand, Lottie looks like a little prize-fighter here in her several-days-late Valentine's Day onesie, so I guess it's even.

The most exciting event in Lottie's life in her fifth week was definitely the Great Ice Storm of '14. They'd been hyping it for weeks, but hey, it's Georgia, so I figured it'd be just another quarter inch of snow flurries that would melt before noon. Nope. Turns out it was four inches of solid ice that stuck around for days and took down trees and power lines across the state, leaving us without power for three days. So Lottie and Jim got to experience the joys of huddling in front of the fireplace and wearing six layers of clothes to stay warm.

Lottie at Four Weeks Old

As per usual, Jim at four weeks. Have you noticed how much more thorough the weekly Jim posts were?


This is one of about two usable pictures from that session, due primarily to Jim's "I'm not touching you!" game.

Note how tight that onesie is getting on her giant belly. At four weeks, she was almost entirely grown out of her newborn stash. She can kind-of-sort-of fit into a few 3-6m things in addition to her 0-3 stuff, too. Only things without legs, though. She's got a huge torso and itty bitty short limbs.

Lottie at Three Weeks Old

Okay, I'm obsessed with comparing pictures, but again for comparison's sake: Jim at three weeks. Note how much happier she is about the proceedings.


Jim was obsessed with this bow and kept insisting that I put it back on her after I took it off.

Speaking of happy babies, Lottie started smiling and cooing a little just before she was three weeks. Told you she was a sociable little thing.

Moving pictures!

Noah very helpfully got Lottie to smile for the camera! Behold:




Not to be outdone, here's Jim reading one of his favorite books. Marvel at his alphabet-reading ability:



Note that in both videos the other kid is clamoring for attention. I feel so neglectful.

Lottie at Two Weeks Old

For comparison's sake: Jim at two weeks.


Already bigger and chunkier than at one week. Note the hand-me-down onesie. We (read: mostly Noah but I go along with it) are of the opinion that blue is good for girls, as are camo, trains, and dinosaurs.


Okay, it's blurry, but this is a very typical Lottie face. She looks like a hilarious little alien.

Also: Jim in .gif form!


I was absolutely shocked that he didn't toss himself in, too.
