I apologize ahead of time for the long post. I have a hard time committing to the computer for more than 2-3 minutes at a time. So, I sat down this evening & went a little crazy...
It's been a while since I last posted & we have kept very busy! The boys are enjoying more awake time, so I've found new ways to entertain them & they are beginning to respond with lots of smiles & laughing.
So, labor day weekend we had a little get-together for the boys' blessings. They looked very handsome in their outfits & Jason gave wonderful blessings that of course, made me cry. It's amazing to see these little guys & hear of their incredible potential!
I mentioned that I entertain the boys... Yeah, we haven't invested in many toys/activity centers yet, so the boys rely on my dancing, singing, story-telling, & attempt at comedy to keep them busy. Hmmmm....we really need to get to the store....
So, here are the boys kicking & "dancing" while there is music playing, I'm singing along & doing a crazy dance myself, with no blackmail photos included!
This is our life, it's great!
Another piece of entertainment for the boys: MIRROR
They LOVE to look in the mirror....whenever we walk past one, I have to stop & let them look at themselves & me in AWE & wonder. Here's ARLO grasping my little bathroom mirror....
Both Josiah & Arlo love tummy-time. They like to show off their rolling skills. They lift up on their arms & push themselves to laying on back. They immediately start to fuss until I put them back on tummy. We repeat this little exercise over & over until they've pooped out. They are interested in rolling to their tummies, but have not quite gotten the strength yet.
Another fun activity...going on WALKS!!! It's sad that the weather has taken a turn for the cold, so I think our outside walking days are over, until next spring. 2 weeks ago I took Josiah & Arlo on a walk to campus to visit daddy at work in the Kimball Tower. It was a quick visit because Jason was working, but definitely a fun venture out of the house!
Jason's birthday was on September 28 & we had a quiet evening together the day before (Since Sunday is our only day together =( ...) We had a YUMMY london broil for dinner with a banana cake for dessert. The boys made a card for daddy & signed it with their foot-prints. =)
