8 and 9 months

Its becoming harder and harder to get any free time. The boys have grown up so much the last couple months. They seem like little kids to me now. They are having a little bit of separation anxiety lately. They hate when I leave the room even if they were not even paying any attention to me, the minute I walk out they start crying. The last two months have been kind of crazy. We went to New Mexico for Chases little brothers farewell. He is going to Germany for two years! were going to miss him so much. Then we went to California for 10 days to hang out for memorial day. When we got back the boys both got that mouth, hands and foot disease. Luckily it was a mild case and only showed up in the mouth. Then Tate got his first two teeth! Teething was so much fun (NOT). Porter still does not have any teeth. I just went to the dr and Tate has a ear infection. Chase also got the shingles during this time, so he couldn't play with the twins that much seeing as it was contagious to them because they have not had chicken pox yet. We are still waiting to see if they will get them or not, it can stay in their system up to 20 days before any signs show up. Needless to say a break sounds pretty good right now :)


Other then all the sickness the boys are great! They Pull out the smiles all the time and I love it. The minute I take out my phone they start smiling, seeing as the only pictures I get of them are with my phone. Ever since they got sick they have loved waking up at 530 in the morning. This is not ideal so we are trying to ween off their third nap to see if it will make them sleep in longer. So far they have slept in till 7 both times! im excited :) They Take two two hour naps sometimes longer. The hard part is just keeping them up till bedtime with out them getting to fussy.  They drink four bottles and eat three solids a day. They are little jibberjabbers. They say momma and dadda all the time. They love their dad, and by love i mean LOVE!!! Seriously, anytime they hear his voice or see him they squeal and laugh and cant wait to be picked up by him. It make me wonder if they would do that for me if I was gone all day.. but I guess we will never know..







Tate is 20lbs 3 oz and 28.5 inches. He got his first two teeth all at once. He is so close to crawling! He is a master at the army crawl, he just needs to figure out he can move his legs. He loves sitting on mommys lap. If I am sitting anywhere around him he crawls right up on me. Porter sees this and then cries and follows suit, Porter hates being left out. Tate favorite words is Momma. Its not so cute when he is whining and say it but other then that its adorable :). He loves snacks! He is so my child. He is feeding himself really well. He really likes gogurt, veggie sticks, Puffs, yogurt melts. He is a little more skittish of things. He doesn't like water being splashed at him by his brother or to get thrown up in the air by his Dad.





Porter is 19 lbs 11 oz and 29 inches. He still has no teeth but that does not stop him eating what he wants. Lately he has been really into green beans, Veggie Sticks, Cheese, and Peas. He puts them all in his mouth at once, I dont think he realizes that he can eat one at a time. He says dadda all the time. He is a little dare devil. We have to watch him really well in the bath because he just wants to go all over the place. He loves to splash Tate and getting himself dirty with his food. He has not started to crawl yet but he does like to roll everywhere to get where he wants. His favorite things are getting under the crib and Playing with door Stops.




 Porter knowing that he is in trouble for motorboating all his food all over me and him...
