Watching Jack and Lilly as they learn to play together more and more is the reason we keep having children! Jack was running up behind Lilly this morning while she was finishing breakfast, and poking his hand through the back of her chair to tickle her. Lilly shrieked each time and Jack ran away laughing, only to return a few seconds later for more. I can't even begin to imagine life with 3. Luckily we still have 16 weeks to get used to the idea. And these weeks couldn't be flying by faster. I feel this little one kicking all the time now, but they're the sweet little kicks, reminding me that I'm pregnant, before the huge, uncomfortable ones come along in about 10 weeks. Before I fall asleep at night or when I wake up in the morning, I lie in bed feeling these kicks and spend a few minutes of quiet with this baby, as I don't seem to have much of that these days. The other day, I even felt this baby's hiccups for the first time. This has to be one of my favorite times during pregnancy! I'm clearly pregnant, although not huge yet, and I have constant little reminders from this baby that he or she will be here in a few short months. Lilly keeps asking when March will be here (we go through the months of the year every time, stopping at everyone's birthdays and other major holidays) and she's coming up with names for the baby as well. Her current favorite is Sunshine--thoughtful and happy, but I think it's time that Jim and I start talking about names for this baby, otherwise Sunshine it might be.
Here are some pictures from the bath last night. The two of them love the bath--some nights are more relaxing than others, especially now that Jack tries to walk in the bath. I'd love him to be a bit more steady on solid ground before he attempts the slippery bath and water, so we seem to have this battle nightly. Jack adores the faucet, however, and thinks that splashing water in his face is hilarious. Lilly would be content lounging in the bath for hours, so she usually stays in for awhile after Jack hops out. She adds some more hot water, lies back and chats away to herself.
