What Are we Up to

I realized I really haven't blogged about all the things the boys can do now and what we have been up to lately.  Really what we have been up to is staying at home.  They have officially become too much to handle in public.  When we go out to eat they are occupied for a good 30 minutes and then they get bored and want down.  Doesn't make for a peaceful dinner out.  We have attempted to go to a few parties with them and that is a disaster too.  It has gotten incredibly challenging and frustrating to be at someone else's house.  At our house we have gates up and the boys can just take off.  At others we have to constantly keep an eye on them, tell them no and chase them everywhere.  It has really been unenjoyable to go anywhere.  So we sit at home and play.  We play in our little pool and they play with their water table. We went to the pool this past weekend and they had a blast and were actually pretty good.  They love water just like their momma.  I am finally feeling better so we were able to make it back to church Sunday. The boys started a new class and they loved it.  When we picked them up they told us they did so good and just played with everyone.  That makes this momma happy.  They are still taking two naps a day.  I contribute this to the fact that the little stink butts wake up at 4:30/5:00 every morning.  I am praying this changes soon!  We are completely off bottles and formula.  This was a major Hallelujah day.  It was actually a pretty easy transition.  Next will be binkies and I know that one won't be so easy.  I'd like to do it before the new baby comes, but not sure if it will happen.  They are eating all adult food now.  They chow down. I don't know where they put it all. I mean they can literaly eat more than me and Robert. Their favorite is pancakes.  Here are some little individual developments.

-words - bubba, momma, dada, nana, ball
-He can stand on his own, but hasn't started walking yet.  He can take about 2-3 steps and then he falls. You can tell he really wants to, so I'm sure it is just a matter of weeks before he takes off. 
-He can somewhat say more in sign language. It is more of a clap, but we know what he means :)
Beckham is still so laid back.  He is starting to get a little tougher with his brother, but for the most part is still very passive.  He gives kisses, but mostly only to his brother.  He has become a major daddy's boy. 

words- bubba, momma, dada, nana, ball, please, thank you (ball is his favorite word that he repeats over and over)
-He is full force running!  I swear one day he just took off and hasn't stopped since.  It is so cute seeing his little body just go everywhere.  He is so much happier now that he can walk too.  He walks around picking everything up and throws it. 
Brody is really understanding what you say to him.  I can tell him to go get his cup and he will go right to it.  Pretty much the same for anything I say.  He has a shovel he got for his birthday that he loves to carry around.  He is still very ornery, but also the biggest cuddler ever.  He is constantly kissing his brother and has recently started picking things up and giving them to Beckham.  It is so sweet and melts my heart. 

They have really started interacting with each other.  It will be so funny when we put them in their cribs for nap time.  Next thing you know all you hear is them cracking up laughing back and forth at each other.  Every day is getting a lot more challenging, but it is also getting so fun. I love the different personalities that each of them have. This really is the time when something new happens every day.  I'm excited for the milestones to come.
