Henry - 19 months; Thomas - 2 months

I'm not sure where the time has gone, but it seems to passing by so quickly lately. 10 days ago marked Henry's 19 month birthday. It doesn't seem possible. Since starting school last month his vocabulary has expanded greatly. He's a real talking machine these days and I just love to hear his voice. I also think he has gone through a growth spurt these past few weeks, he looks as if he's wearing high waters these days :)
A new routine for us is the potty. He loves to use it and whenever you sit him on there he will go. He really just enjoys flushing it...well and putting all the toilet paper in it! He's also gone #2 three times on the potty so far - such a big boy!! I can't believe he's growing up so quickly right in front of my eyes!

Yesterday marked Thomas being 2 months old - already! He's such a good baby! He goes to bed around 8pm and now sleeps 7 hours straight! He only wakes up once in the middle of the night to be fed and then sleeps until 7ish and is fed again and often goes back to bed until 9am. It works out great so that I can get Henry around 7 and play with him solo for a few hours. Thomas does have a little bit of a fussy time around 6ish but it's getting better as he's getting older! He also is showing some sensitivity to dairy :( I had a blizzard on Saturday with my mom and little Henry and he didn't like it too much - he had such a tummy ache. That and caramel popcorn seem to be enemies of his - but it's worth it for me to give it up while I'm nursing.
He too seem to hit a growth spurt. He's still wearing newborn diapers (barely!) but in between newborn and 3 month clothing. The 3 month swims on him a bit but the newborn seems a little snug - hate the in between period!

We went home to Camp Hill this past weekend since it was "Men to the Mountain," where all the guys go to the family cabin to shoot guns and fish and I spent time with Henry's mother and my mom. They both loved being with the little boys and we were all exhausted by nighttime.

The boys are both napping so I'm going to go enjoy a few pages of my book and finish some laundry. I will post photos later :)


  1. So glad to hear the boys are doing well!! I am going to have you come to Lincoln next time we have a little one to sleep train him/her. You have some great sleepers : ) Can't wait to see some new pictures of them!!

  2. I second that! Can you come to Minneapolis and sleep-train my next little one?!?! :)

    The boys are growing so big. I need to get out to Philly and see them before they grow up too fast!
