Ashton is still waking 1-2 times at night, but I'm actually very content with that. It was never my intention to night wean him. If he wants/needs to eat, then eat he shall. I'm hoping he'll night wean himself eventually. Until he does, I will savor every ounce of cuddle time I get with my ever growing baby because soon enough he'll follow in his big brother's foot steps and run from the very thought of it.

Pectus excavatum (a Latin term meaning hollowed chest) is the most common congenital deformity of the anterior wall of the chest, in which several ribs and the sternum grow abnormally. This produces a caved-in or sunken appearance of the chest. It can either be present at birth or not develop until puberty.
The pictures I found while googling are a bit disturbing, but it seems to be a relatively non-issue. Some people have surgery for cosmetic reasons, but in rare cases it does cause some health issues with breathing and a displaced heart. I guess only time will tell, and there is no sense getting my knickers in a knot over it.
In other Mahlke news, this week we focused on the letter K. We started with making our flashcard by using cookie cutter lips to "kiss" the paper with paint. Then we made a kayak collage out of a catalog from Daddy's work. Spencer loved this project so much that he wanted to make two collages. It's very cute hearing him say that his daddy makes kayaks at work. Afterwards we create a makeshift kayak out of a plastic tote and used a golf club as an oar. Spencer especially loved this and had a great time navigating the choppy water (i.e. Mommy pushing and pulling and bouncing and tipping the tote).
Enjoy a video of Spencer jamming out to an Elmo video on my phone. He's obsessed with it!
