Catching up

So much has been going on.  I just realized last night that it has been nearly a month since I posted on the blog.  Every day life getting in the way of blogging
; )

The boys have been quite sick this winter - one cold after the other.  It looks like we are taking a turn for the better heading into Spring now.  But, I will never say never.  These boys certainly keep us on our toes.

Tommy is 9 months old and checked out perfectly healthy at his doctor's visit this week.  He weighs nearly 20 pounds which puts him in the 50th percentile for weight.  His height is dead on average too.  He has two teeth and is babbling and drooling constantly.  He is cruising on furniture, holding himself up and getting ready to walk.  My guess is he will be walking by his first birthday. 

Ben is thriving as well, although he is in the thick of toddler-hood.  He throws tantrums like it's his job, and can whine with the best of 'em.  But, overall he is smart and calm - just headstrong.  He is working on putting on his own sneakers and getting better at that every day.  He puts on his own jacket and hat like a champ.  It's hard to believe that he will be 3 years old in just 2 more months.  He is moving closer to independence every day, but he still loves to snuggle and read with mom and dad.  I'll take that for as long as I can get it!

So, life goes on and we are moving forward every day just doing our thing.  Can't wait to be out of the house and on the playground or in the backyard!
