Family Update

Everything is going great in the Stoker family right now. Brandon started his new job this week and he is really enjoying the company which is a relief. It is kind of sad because he has been home so much over the last year that I am missing him during the day, but when he gets home from work he has been more loving so I like that. Elizabeth is growing and becoming more beautiful every day. She is opening her eyes more now, can hold her head up, and I even caught a hint of a smile yesterday. She is also sleeping much better, although she prefers to sleep on our bed rather than in her own. Last night she went to sleep at 11:30pm woke up at 4:30am and then again at 9am. What a good girl! I have been so blessed to have good sleeping babies. I think that Jackson's sleep schedule has been the biggest factor in contributing to an easy transition since he still sleeps from 9:30pm to 10am every night. (Actually right now it is 10:40am and he is still asleep).

Jack is such a good little boy too. He is getting more acclimated to Elizabeth and even gives her kisses on her head now. He still acts up now and then, especially during feeding time, but for the most part he is a really good big brother. Yesterday we went to a playgroup at this place called My Gym. It is an indoor gym for little kids with mats, a balance beam, a ball pit, and all kinds of other fun equipment. He had a blast playing with the other kids and with the gym workers.
He is even talking more now which is a relief, the kid can throw a ball 10 feet but the language development is still coming about. The other day he figured out how to use my camera and decided to take a self portrait which I thought was pretty funny. What a great family I have, I am so blessed.Not the most flattering picture but hey, he took it all by himself.

I love the self portrait. He's even making his special face for the camera!
