A year of life for Nevan.

We have been blessed w our third baby for a year now. Nevan is our Christmas baby. His birthday is December 15, 2011. He has brought so much joy into our lives! The transition from 2 to 3 children was extremely difficult but seems to be finally easier. Nevan is a very happy boy who loves to be held as well as in the action. He can't get enough of Clare, whenever she walks by or talks to him he repeats 'Ca' or 'Sis' over and over. He will sit by Paul for long stretches of time and play cars or blocks which is very sweet. Hands down, Nevan is a baby, he loves constant attention and is very content to be held all day long. He is a big boy but is fairly small (weight wise) in comparison to Paul at this age. Nevan started walking about 2 days after his first birthday and still only says a couple of words consistantly. He loves to be roughed up and wrestled by Daddy and Paul. It will be so fun to see Nevan react to the new baby! He will be 18 or 19 months old when number 4 comes along.

Update for the Hinkle clan!

Whoo hoo! Blog is working again! Somehow I locked myself out for months! Irritating!


We are pregnant again, currently 15 weeks along. We are so excited for this next blessing, it is so much fun w Clare and Paul being more aware.

Clare is almost 4. She is so much fun and such a Momma's helper and Daddy's girl! She loves playing w her many dolls (honeybaby, sarabelle, clarabelle, baby dream, tiny baby, Mosem and China baby). We had Clare in 3 days a week Preschool for about a month, but we just didn't feel it was a good fit.

Paul is 2 and absolutely hilarious all.the.time. he is a total Momma's boy. He says sweet things all day and is a great little problem solver. He is obsessed w spiderman and swords. He prefers to play w his bro or sis but isn't to interested in making outside friends (unlike his super outgoing sis). I can't get enough of Paul, he is such a blessing. He seems to be musically inclined, not so much singing like his sister, but he catches beats really quick and plays air guitar anytime he hears music.

Nevan is 1 years old! He started walking just after his birthday, we spent a lot of time holding off walking due to our Chiropractor's recommendation, not easy. He doesn't say a whole lot beyond grunts but he sings whenever we are singing. He finally is sleeping through the night. A month ago he was waking 6 times per night and it quickly tapered down to 3 which after a year of 6 or more nursing sessions a night, 3 was welcomed, but for the last week he hasn't been getting up! He has a very pleasant and happy attitude. Loves to be roughed up and in the action.

We had a very blessed Christmas, hope you did too!
