February 19, 2007

Yes, today is our anniversary. My husband and I were married 2 years ago today and it was a very special day and a beautiful wedding. We have had a busy two years: we moved from Texas to Oklahoma, my husband changed jobs, I quit my job to be a stay at home wife and mother, we sold a house and bought a new house and, of course, we adopted our two little sons. It has been a wonderful two years and I would not change a thing. We are very blessed indeed.

The boys are both doing wonderfully. I have a few pics I have taken and wanted to put them up today but I have not had time to upload them. Maybe tomorrow.

Benjamin is still working on trying to feed himself. Today, he fed himself a cracker. I took a picture of it and will post it with other pics later. He will also pull his sippy cup up for a drink, although he will only use one hand, so he needs some help if the cup is not full.  His walking continues to improve and he can take 8 to 10 steps on his own and can turn a little better on his own also. He is trying to walk between pieces of furniture and other objects, on his own, more and more. He is a bit more quiet than Nick, although he goes through periods of time where he is chattering a lot. If he is trying to say actual words, I have not heard any that I recognize yet, other than mama and dada.

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.

Happy Anniversary!

It's wonderful that the boys are sleeping well and adjusting pretty smoothly to their new life. It is amazing how resilient some kids are.
