February 20, 2007

Nicholas, holds my sneaker. It's only size 7.5 but it looks huge next to him! He really likes shoe strings or anything soft to hold while he is sucking his thumb.

Nick's vocabulary increases a bit each day. His newest words are banana and tractor. He chatters a lot and will frequently try to repeat words, when we are trying to get him to say a word.

Do you like the socks and sandals:)? This is my solution to cold feet on our wood floors.

Here is Ben, feeding himself a cracker. This was a big step for him.

One of my favorite pics of Ben, learning to walk, hands up in the air, fingers crossed, and a huge grin on his face. So cute!!

Nick, recovering from pneumonia. Thankfully we caught it early.

As Nick sleeps/recovers, Ben plays, wishing Nick would wake up. I thought this was too funny. He will sometimes lift one foot off the floor, so he can lean into the toy basket further. He actually fell in head first once and it was hysterical (he was not hurt but needed help getting out:). My mom and sister were here and we all had a good chuckle.

Ben, palming the ball. He was excited when he realized that he could do this.

So glad to hear B is fine. How great that they boys miss each other when the other is asleep or away. They truly are brothers. That's great.
Sounds like church went great. I have often wondered how it is leaving them in the nursery. Glad you were able to enjoy the service.
Happy anniversary. That was a very busy 2 years. I hope the next to are a bit slower and full of new things with your sons.
Sounds like they are sleeping so well. That's great.
They look great, so cute. Thanks for sharing the pictures.
You have many prayers answered, very happy for you guys. You are doing an amazing job.

Will B pass a item from one hand to another? try putting a toy in each hand of his and seeing if he will clap them together and play pat-a-cake ( a small block or something he can wrap his fingers around works well)

Livi was also behind on fine motor skills and I would often have to show her how to play & to explore.
We do alot of lacing & fine motor activities now as she is still a little behind.

OMG!! Ivan just started doing that EXACT SAME THING with his fingers on the same hand!!! I have no idea where he got this. How ironic.

Your boys are so adorable! Sounds like things are progressing wonderfully!!
