Today is Bob's birthday. So far to celebrate it I have done the dishes and a load of laundry. Woohoo! It's pretty nice outside so maybe we can go to a park or something when the boys wake up. We'll definitely be going to dinner at the place of Bob's choosing.

Happy Birthday, Wumpkin, I love you!!

Wyatt's 4 month checkup

I think I have been so busy that I haven't had a chance to post this yet. Wyatt was 15 pounds even (50th percentile), 26.5 inches long (75-90th percentile) and his head was in the 50-75 th percentile but I can't remember the exact measurement. In all areas he is doing wonderfully. He did pushups for the doc, stood up holding onto my hands, grabbed stuff, followed the lights, turned towards sounds, all that stuff. He got two shots, the same two as last time, but without the hours of crying afterward...thank goodenss! She said to go ahead with veggies so that's why we tried the sweet potato and carrots. I think I'm going to hold off trying any more until he's six months old. I intend to make my own baby food like I did with Oliver but we'll see how that turns out. There's so little time!

He's rolling over more consistantly now, almost every time I put him on his belly he gets over on his back. He's also grabbing his feet a lot and rolling from his back to his side. He's chewing like a fiend on anything he can get his hands on. I'm hoping he's not teething but I think he probably is.

He's such a smiley happy baby...I guess we'll keep him

Little man

He's such a little man!

We are all sick! Oliver got sick when we went to WV two weeks ago. Two days ago Bob and I and Wyatt all picked up whatever it is that he had. He's still sick, too. I took him to the dr today and they said give him Mucinex for a few days to see if that helps and if not we have a scrip for antibiotics. Fun! Bob and Wyatt were both running fevers today, although Wyatt's has gone down in the last hour or so. I tried to make some soup but it was a disaster. I didn't think about putting the noodles in the slowcooker and they became MUSH. I guess I'll be the only one eating that big vat of goop. We did end up getting a good nap ...Bob and Oliver for about an hour and Wyatt and I for about 2.

Oh yeah, I actually did give Wyatt some carrots today. He ate them up! he's going to be a good eater like Oliver, I think.

So it's the last day of the year and here we are, sick as dogs. What a way to go out!

So much to update!

I have so much to write and so many pictures but there is just no time lately!! Oliver has another cold with a horrible cough. Wyatt is eating cereal and has tried sweet potato. Oliver is talking in sentences, complete whole sentences. Wyatt is rolling over tummy to back and from back to side (he can almost make it over!). Oliver helped pick out and decorate the Christmas tree...he also helped open everyone else's presents. Oliver loves tools and fixing things. We (with help from Uncle Digits and Aunt Ani) got him a tool chest for Christmas. His favorite is the drill. Wyatt got some squeaky blocks that he just loves to chew on. I can't wait to post pictures. When I do it will be JUST pictures unless there's an especially cute story to go with it.
We had a trip to WV recently, too. We all enjoyed seeing Mammaw and Pappy Lucian and Cheryl and Angie and their families. Pictures and maybe a story or two later
Bob is enjoying his break from school, we're having a little bit of relaxing. If we get the kids in bed at a decent hour we can watch a movie or something!...together!! It's nice to have some time together.
Bob's birthday is this Saturday. I don't know what we are going to do for it but we'll do something. He's 35 this year! I actually managed to get a Saturday off work for it.
I've been busy working and taking care of the house and the boys. Nothing is really new with me, I suppose. I have gained 5 pounds (maybe a bit more) over the holidays but I'll be losing that in '09 plus the last 5 that I gained with Wyatt.
Maybe when the boys go to sleep I can get those pictures posted!
