I haven''t updated the boys'' page in a while. Let''s see if I can get it all into one post.
At 6 months (June) Eli got his first 2 teeth. At 8 months 2 on the top came through and then 2 more followed about a week later. So they''re still working on coming through all the way. But he''s officially got 6 teeth now.
At 7 months he really started to army crawl. He''s still not a crawler but he can boogy around army style.
At 8 months he pulled up for the first time on the bouncy chair we had in the office. It''s pretty low to the ground but he got on his toes all the way. Now he''s pulling up like a pro. Still a little wobbly and likes to stand on those toes but he''s getting better every day. Now we''re just waiting for that first step.
I took him to the Dr today for his 9 month check up and he''s a healthy 22lbs 4oz. He did great and she said he''s a healthy little boy!
He''s starting to wave "hi" and "bye" now too. It''s so cute because my ex boss was talking to me at the clinic and wasn''t paying attention to him. He was screaming and waving at her so she would pay attention to him instead.
Ethan goes in for his 3 year old check up on October 1st. He''s been to the Dr a few times in the last few months for ear infections and I''m thinking he''s probably close to 35 lbs.
He''s always been a picky eater when it comes to vegetables but we''ve been telling him that they make his muscles grow and it''s worked!! He ate a whole helping of green beans one night, broccoli the next and potatoes the night after that. Crazy little kid! We''re working on his ABC''s now and recognizing letters. He''s great with colors and shapes. We''re also working on numbers. For some reason he likes to count 3,4,9 instead of 1,2,3. :) But he''ll catch on. We''ve been going to the Cherryvale football games on Friday''s and he LOVES it! I can''t believe how well behaved he is for a 3 year old. Yes a little onry but what 3 year old isn''t. I think Eli''s got him beat in the onry department though. This little one is going to be a handful when he starts walking. He''s already testing us when we tell him no.
That''s about all I can think of right now. I''ve been super busy with school, talking a full time schedule this semester, and JR''s been busy with work and house stuff. I promise to update this more often. I plan on putting some more pictures on here soon too. Ethan''s birthday party is Sept 28th at 4:30 at our house (in case you don''t get the invite).
