Somehow I blinked and this happened…

I knew this day was coming, but still, I’m not ready! Addie has spent nearly every weekday since she was 8 weeks old at Linda’s. Linda practically raised her! And now, Addie starts preschool next week. Sad day, happy day. Mixed emotions for sure. The good thing is that the boys will still be at Linda’s so Addie will still get to see her. I won’t shed too many tears just yet!

We decided to take Addie to Tahoe as a goodbye summer/hello preschool treat. Coen had to tag along since he’s pretty much attached to me until Tuesday. Addie met a friend who helped fill her pail over and over again.

Coen got a little sun and put his toes in the water.

Then we decided to spend the rest of the day in the tent until Addie decided she’d filled her pail enough times.

Aside from beach fun and Addie’s last day at daycare, Coen turned 14 weeks!

Next week, many new adventures for these little nuggets! I sure hope we all survive 🙂

Last Thursday and Friday, we reached Coen’s official 13 week and 3-month milestones. We had a crazy full week. Auntie returned from her summer interning at Disney World. Coen loves his baby Mickey. His ears sure do taste yummy!!

We had a few impromptu play dates last weekend. Our landlords are planning to paint the outside of our house so their two little ones were over playing in the yard for a bit. Addie insisted on playing in their truck while they painted the garage. She gave our landlord a full overview of the Disney princesses and a summary of Frozen.

And after a long Sunday of playing outside in the water, she passed out on the chair like this for two hours!

Last Friday, we took Coen with us to our lovely friends, Jocelyn and David’s, wedding in San Martin. The whole day was beautiful, classy yet unpretentious. Absolutely perfect! Aside from a couple of photo ops, I didn’t hold Coen all night. I’m sure there are plenty of pictures of my friends holding Coen. Jocelyn probably won’t even remember who that baby belongs to 10 years from now 🙂

We went back to Nana and Poppy’s Saturday to visit with family and pick up our other little ones before heading back home Sunday. Aunt Lisa brought a Rapunzel dress for Addie. She and Lisa’s granddaughter, Jolie, had tons of fun playing princess all night long.

Poor Coen had to wear the tiara for hours when we got home. I have a feeling this won’t be the last time his sissy dresses him up!

And, finally, I just think this is a funny picture. We have one with Addie’s cousin Ewan holding her when both were just about the same ages and she pretty much has the same terrified look on her face that Coen has here!

A little late this time around, but Coen’s 12 weeks old (almost 13 now, but let’s not focus on that!!). His 12th week of life was filled with fun family time, a trip to the park, lunch dates with mommy…nothing too crazy.

He’s filled with smiles and coos. Generally he’s a happy baby though still has a strong preference for his mama. We’ve abandoned the swaddles at night since he’s so squirmy and now he sleeps in the funniest positions.

A bit dramatic, don’t you think? Typical for a Gibson 🙂

Coen’s 11 Weeks

If you listen to the numerous baby books and websites, your baby is “sleeping through the night” if he or she is getting in a six-hour stretch. So technically, by baby book standards, Coen started “sleeping through the night” a few nights ago. However, since he goes to bed around 7 or 8, he wakes up at 2am. I’m not going to say he’s “sleeping through the night” until that 2am gets stretched until at least 6am, but if you go by the the old 6-hour rule, we’ve hit a new milestone this week.

We had a pretty quiet week. No birthdays. Just a nice weekend at home enjoying the rain. And some good times playing in the stream at Gram & Gramps’ house.

Another week of excitement for Coen! He spent more time at Beckett’s therapies, more time at the gym and went to yet another birthday party. Our friend Leo turned one the day before Beckett’s birthday. We celebrated with a day of water fun over the weekend.

Addie spent the entire party in the pool, Coen was passed between friends and Beckett hung out for a bit then took a nap! We had so much fun Saturday that we decided to spend Sunday in the pool too!

Other than fun in the sun, our week’s been filled with Coen being adorable and Addie being silly.
