So how is this for updating more often? It’s been about six months since my last update. As you can imagine a lot has changed since then.

Amy went back to work after three months. The first few weeks were predictably exhausting. Fortunately, the boys adapted rather quickly to sleeping in their cribs and by month 4 they slept through the night more often than not.

We helped that along when we started feeding them rice cereal before bed. My boys can eat! We have worked our way up to two cereal feedings a day. Lunch is rice cereal mixed with a vegetable. Dinner is oatmeal mixed with fruit. Melanie really helped us out by making pureed veggies and fruit for the first couple months. Now our guys are nine months old, wearing 12 month clothes minimum. Alex is most comfortable in 18 months.

As of last Wednesday, Danny was 20 lbs. 3.5 oz. and 28 inches tall. Alex was 22 lbs 8.5 oz and 30 inches tall. According to a height estimating formula, Alex will be 6’1″ and Danny will be 5’10″ when fully grown. The chart was from an article my mother found and when she compared it to my siblings and I, it was dead on.

Anyway, at nine months, the boys are babbling incessantly and are just about to crawl. They have been rolling over to move for about six weeks now. Danny is a terror in his walker. He tears all over the house. Alex is much more laid back and is content to sit or bounce at his own pace. Alex likes to say, “ma-ma-ma-ma” even though he hasn’t made an association with it yet. Danny likes to make inquisitive sounds and scream.

I have been keeping my hand in professionally by maintaining some websites and shooting and editing a video for Amy’s work. It’s hard to juggle all this but Amy’s parents and my parents are always willing to lend a hand. They have all been a great help.

I will get some more photos on here soon to show the evolution of the boys. Thanks for sticking with me!
