Sitting Goose?

Not a sitting duck, but close.  Here is Tommy (AKA, Goose) sitting up.  He's growing up so fast!

Santa's Little Helper

Ben is learning all about Christmas.  He knows that you have to be a good boy to get presents from Santa, and that Santa lives at the North Pole.  So far that's about all he knows.  We are working on the rest of the story...  Although, he does seem a little confused since he told me that he is going to be a fireman for Christmas and that Tommy is going to be Superman.  Like I said, we are working on it!

In the mean time, he is loving his Santa hat that he found at Nonnie's house. : )

Boys will be boys

Back to normal this week.  The boys are back at day care and Chris and I are both at work.  No one is traveling and the weather is holding up.  It's getting dark at 5pm, but I'll take what I can get.

Ben and Tommy are both growing like weeds and changing every day.  I am constantly amazed at how sharp and perceptive Ben is.  He hears everything and can recall information amazingly well for a 2 1/2 year old (I think...).  Tommy is Mr. Smiles most days.  He is a great sleeper and he is very chilled out for the most part.  He adores his big brother Ben, and laughs as just about everything Ben does.  What more could a mom ask for?!

Post haircut ride on the motorcycle

This is where I found Ben after he shouted, "Mama, come find me!"

Cutest Martin Sexton fan ever!

Big boy!  Tommy sitting in his high chair for the first time (5 months)

Hurricane Sandy Week

This week has been hard for everyone on the East Coast.  We are very lucky that we didn't lose power.  Many people in our area lost cable, power, heat, even their homes.  However, we did have to get creative once the boys started going crazy not being on their schedules...  It's been a tough one!  Things are getting back to normal though.  Many schools will reopen on Monday, including the boys' day care center (woohoo!), trees are being cut down and cleaned up and power is steadily being restored.  If we could all just stop going crazy for gas, things would be good!

Here are some pics from the week of Sandy:
