The thing I enjoy the most about having 3 kids is seeing how they interact with one another. They are so considerate. (Not that Hannah wasn't considerate to Peter after he first arrived, I think I was just too overwhelmed with having a second kid to notice) If Miriam starts crying, Hannah always runs over to her with a toy, a blanket, or just to say, "Miriam, don't cry. We love you." Or if Peter falls or bumps his head or hurts himself in any other way, Hannah's always there to give him his blanket or his water (unless of course on the *rare* occasion that she is the one causing the injury...they she splits like a banana). And the other day Peter found Hannah's favorite stuffed animal is his crib and he noticed it and said, "Hannah's, Hannah's" and he immediately wanted to run and give it to her. It is so much fun to watch them grow individually and grow together. That said, they do have their moments where they fight...what siblings don't. But it's so worth it see the moments where they truly care for each other and giggle together, and do goofy things together.

Well tonight at dinner Peter was saying poo poo and here's how Hannah responded.
"Peter we only say that in the bathroom. At the table we say, "yum, food" or "more food please." OK Peter?"

Weight: 35lb (50%). Apparently she is the average weight of a 4 year old. (Side note: Peter weighs about 33lbs. I guess that means he is also the average weight of a 4 year old. :-D)
Height: 41.5 inches (90%). Apparently this puts her at the average height of a 5 year old. This is why eventhough she is "average" in weight she is so dang skinny. She is just the long & lean body type, I guess.
Anyhow, a couple weeks ago I had some birthday parties for her (yes, parties, plural). I had one party with her friends (and siblings) and one party with family (mainly adults). I decided that the kids wouldn't be very excited about hanging out and chatting and that the adults wouldn't get too many thrills from the treasure hunt and follow the leader. Both parties were tons of fun and it was great to celebrate the whole weekend.
Here's the crew that came to the kiddo party. Oliver, Owen, Peter, Hannah, and Sasha. Maya didn't make the picture (she's Sasha's 1 year old sister), and unfortunately Claire and Daphine were sick so they had to miss.
The balloons were definitely a highlight of the party. Actually, they are still afloat today, 3.5 weeks later. And they still provide minutes upon minutes of entertainment. It's amazing!
Hannah and Sasha running around the house. There is always lots of running when Hannah's around! :-D
This is party #2. Rebekka, Peter, Kiefer and Hannah playing on Hannah's bed. Can you find Hannah?
The rest of us sitting around the food. :-)
Yay for the Healthy Monster Triathlon book.
Kiefer stuck in the grocery cart.

Opening Easter baskets in the morning. Don't worry, that's not what Peter wore for the pictures.
