We got out to visit the Owens family this morning and Elaine finished feeding Jack. He surprised us with how he had grown since we saw him a week or so ago. Julie says he typically wakes up twice during the night and expects to be fed. Some of us "older" people also get up a couple times during the night but she says the feeding takes quite a bit longer than going to the bathroom. She is looking and feeling better every time we see her. Carolyn spends a lot of time helping with everything while John is at work. Even at 3-weeks Jack appears to be of a much different personality than Sadie. He seems to be of a much lighter complexion and a lot quieter in his disposition but he's still young.
Sadie continues to learn and do new things. She and Grandma Carolyn do a lot of food preparation. I was surprised to see her take a egg out of the carton, crack it open on the counter top, put it in the glass dish and stir it for a scrambled egg. I was a pretty big guy before I even tried to crack an egg, and when I did, it seems that some egg shell ended up in the skillet. She has a toy that will sing a song when a certain button is pushed. It is one of her favorites because she can sing right along with it. They have a bird feeder just outside their living room window which she enjoys watching. Elaine mentioned to her that we had a Red Breasted Woodpecker on one of our trees the other day. I don't think she was familiar with the word but enjoyed walking around saying "Woodpecker", 'Woodpecker" just as well as anyone could say it. Her mind works like a fly trap and anything she hears "sticks to it".
