Growing like a weed

Hudson went in for his two week checkup on Friday. He has gained 13 ounces (up to 7 pounds 6 ounces) and has grown nearly an inch since he was last measured 10 days ago. If he continues at this rate, he will overtake his sister before he is 6 months old. Also, I found that I enjoy making him ride a cat like a cowboy.
 So, in the past couple days, Sara Beth has asked two big questions. First, she asked if we could get another baby. She wanted another baby brother or sister. While that is a huge compliment to Hudson's temperament, we told her God made our family with four in it.Then, she asked if Santa Clause was real, I sort of side stepped that question as I was not prepared to answer it yet.

After lunch on Friday, she asked if she could do some dusting around the house. I gave her the duster and told her to go wild. And, as you see, she is in her gymnastics leotard. She is enamored with gymnastics.
 In case she didn't love going to the gym enough, today, one of her fellow gym classmates had her 4th birthday party and rented out the gym to play. Sara Beth had a great time getting to use the big girl equipment. She loved running up to the horse and then I would help her jump up onto it, then she would leap from there into the foam pit. There was a rope swing into the pit as well, but she bumped the rope into her teeth and didn't want to do it again after that. I tried the rope swing after all the kids went into the other room to eat cake and ended up tearing off a layer of skin from rope burn. I think the lesson here is that I need to develop a stronger grip.
