Weekly update!

Well to update about the contest. Nathan came in the top 8!!! Thank you for your votes! I don't know what place he came in. WE should be receiving a book here shortly! Thanks again!

Brian's vocabulary is expanding every day. He's really good at mimicking now. He popped another tooth through bringing his tooth total to 11. He is still sleeping great in his big boy bed. He's got a runny nose again but not to severe. He fought off a fever a couple of days ago. I thought we were going to have a full blown sickness on our hands but he fought it off. I have no injuries to report.

Nathan is not so lucky. He's got the runny nose and cough. No fever but not sleeping well at all. Poor baby can't breathe with a stuffy nose and a paci. Other than that, he's a generally happy baby.
He can be happy when he wants to be. He's going to be laughing here soon! We got really lucky with a good sleeper. For about a week or two now he's been sleeping through the night. From about 8:30- 7! It's definitely nice!

That's about it for us here. Keep checking back for more updates!

Update on us!

Family- We spent yesterday at our annual May get together with my family yesterday. We had a record breaking 27 people there! Mostly my family with the addition of my cousin's girlfriend, another cousins boyfriend, another cousins fiance, and another cousins best friend. We attempted to get the first picture of the three greatgrandbabies together. It was rough and figures that the oldest was the hardest to get to sit still. I'm attaching some pictures of that.

I hear he giggled during this shot!


Kisses for my cousin Kyle! Brian loves him!

We also got a grill last nite. Dean loves to grill but we haven't gotten around to picking out a grill. I'm glad we have it since that means less I have to cook!

Nathan- He is pushing up now and rolling! (video at the end) At his 9 week appointment I asked his doctor about his strength since he was much further behind than Brian was at this age. At 9 weeks he wasn't lifting his head at all. Somehow by 10 weeks he was pushing up really really well! At 11 weeks he was rolling over! It seems like just overnight he went from weakling to superman! So proud of my little man. Unfortunately it means he is no longer safe on the couch. Little did he know, he was much safer up on the couch than on the floor with his brother.

Brian- He is still working on adding more words to his vocabulary. His newest word is "dude". Thanks to his aunts. It's pretty cute! I'll see if I can get a better video and show it next post.
He's also starting to learn how to help Mommy. He's learned to pick up his toys and we do that every night before bed. He throws his dirty clothes into the hamper at the end of the day too.

Dean- He came home on Monday. We were very glad to have him back! Brian finger painted a welcome home sign for him. We were supposed to be at the base at 8:30 am and he was to arrive at 9am. Well at 7:30 he called and said he would be there in 3o minutes! We jumped in the car and sped there only to be stopped in morning rush hour traffic. Needless to say we arrived around 8:15 or so and Dean arrived around 7:50. Oh well.

So that is the update on us!

My 100th Post and some random never before seen pics!

Welcome to my 100th post!
91/2 months ago I posted my first blog post. Since then a ton of things have happened and changed. Brian developed his personality, he got into a lot of trouble, we had some rough days, and even added a member to our family. It's been a roller coaster of a ride, but I enjoyed every moment of it! I love those two little boys more than anything in the world! I'm going to post a few never before seen random photos from the last 9 months. Enjoy!

Stuck in his "drum", otherwise known as the spaghetti pot.
The boy loved his new shoes.
Silly mohawk boy!
Professional pictures we had taken when Brian turned 1.
The boy will sleep anywhere!
4 days before I had Nathan and my Grandma's Birthday celebration.
Brian was telling us how ready he was to leave the hospital after Nathan was born. We all felt that way little man!
Newborn Nathan sleeping on Daddy's chest
Not happy during an attempt at Easter pictures.
Smiley Nathan.
A typical meltdown.
He decided it was best to sit on the couch in his toy bin.
Brian climbing down the back of the couch.

I hope you enjoyed them and continue watching and reading about us.
