shots, shoes and shenanigans

We had a busy week! I was a brave soldier and scheduled the boys to have their 21 month and 6 month check ups at the same time -while it went okay that is one thing I will not do again. It was a bit crazy but Mimi helped save the day. Both are doing great and are healthy little boys. Buck is in the 95th percentile in height! And T is already pushing 20 pounds! Its good that Theodore is so big because he is fitting into Buck's old summer clothes perfectly, even if they are a 12 month size.

Buck was so cute this week walking around in my shoes, I don't think they are the right style for him but I think he was trying to tell me that he needed bigger shoes. Come to find out, he measured for a 7.5 shoe!!! I was cramming the poor guys foot into a size 6!! Who knew... Luckily Buck has new tennies so he does not need to wear his momma's kitten heels.

Finally, we almost have T mobile! He is on his knees trying to rock forward, I think he will be crawling before we know it. He can go backwards like a champ and has no problem creeping around a room that way. He is one tough little guy.

Ice cream makes us feel bettter

A good friend of mine passed away from cancer yesterday and we were all pretty miserable. I am lucky to have two awesome little boys to keep me distracted and laughing even through the toughest times. I decided to treat Buck and myself to ice cream. I made an early supper then packed us all in the car to go to the Baskin and Robbins drive thru at highland. Buck got a clown cone and I had a Mint Chocolate Chip Sundae, it was much needed. I took some pics of buck eating his ice cream and then he starting slurping his plate - he is tooo funny. He REALLY liked his treat. T was just happy we were happy and I got some smiling pics of him.

T had a busy weekend and got so tired Jumperooing that he fell asleep mid jump, it was hillarious.

Schools out for Summer - well two weeks

Parents Day out has been on summer break for two weeks and is starting back this week - YAY. I have really enjoyed spending the days with my boys but as a working mom, i HAVE to get my work done so it will be nice to have the break. We have done so much these last few weeks. Buck is talking, and by talking I mean real words! Some of his favorites are Dirty, Happy, Shoe, Melmo (elmo), Cookie, Cracker, Chula, Moo and Stinky. He is turning into such a good little Boy. His favorite new activity is to take his dirty clothes and put them in the laundry basket, he does this after every change adn even puts Theodore's clothes in the basket... he has perfected this activity with a dance - hillarious. Theodore has been up to quite a bit too. He is eating cereal and has had bananas and squash, tommorow we will try pears for the first time. Today T sat unsupported fora good 20 seconds, a first and a big leap ahead. I think all the time he spends in the Jumperoo has been prepping him. Theodore also really enjoys his glowworm, Buck did not like them as a baby, so it is interesting to see!
