Memorial Weekend

The boys had a great time celebrating their very first Memorial Day! We played over at the Wesson's on Friday night, spent all day Saturday lounging around the house, Sunday we had a BBQ with all of the fixins' and spent time with friends and family and finally, spent Monday relaxing and napping.....Gotta love long weekends! A special thank you to all of our servicemen and women who gave their lives to let us enjoy the freedom and to let us all come together to honor those who gave their all!!!

Sooooo, the tooth that we thought was the "fang" tooth, was really Brody's second tooth. The one that touches the front tooth. He is getting 5 teeth in at once and it has not effected him in the slightest. Our kids are such troopers. Wade is standing and taking steps while holding on to furniture and Brody is perfecting his scoot. We have been introducing table foods, slowly but surely...Brody loves bananas, while Wade gags and nearly throws them up. They both love icing, mac n' cheese, chicken salad and cheese so far. I find Wade clapping his hands all of the time and Brody's face lights up whenever you sing to him, poor guy doesn't understand that Mommy is tone deaf... This age is so much fun!!

And we shall call him FANG!!

The boys turned 9 months old last Wednesday! Their check up went great and they are still just as perfect as ever! Here are some new stats:

Wade is crawling all over the place and pulling up on everything. He cannot stay still for one second and cries his little head off when he needs his diaper changed or new clothes put on. He loves to steal toys from his brother and has become quite the Mama's boy. He weighs in at 22 pounds and is 28 3/4 inches long (75th percentiles for both height and weight). Dr. Keefe tested their iron levels and Wade's was a tiny bit low. She recommended that we feed him more red meat based baby foods and increase his intake of oatmeal/grits, etc...Nothing to worry about Daddy calls him snaggle tooth because his 4 little teeth are about all you can see when he smiles his huge grin. He is very curious, attentive and easy going. He loves to try new foods and so far hates anything too Popsicles or ice cream! (Is he really my child? ha ha) He is our little Freebird...Brody finally cut his first tooth on the day he turned 9 months old. It is not the typical 2 bottom or two top...but rather his eye tooth(canine), aka his fang tooth! Seems odd to me, but Dr. Keefe said it is just fine. He cut his bottom fang tooth this cute! He weighs in at 21 pounds and 15 ounces and is 29 1/4 inches long (75th percentile for height and 95th for height)! He loves to bang his VERY STRONG legs down on the ground, his crib, on his toys, his brothers head, etc...He still screeches and screams when he is frustrated and has started clasping his hands together and saying "Nye Nyeeeeee" when he wants something. It is hilarious! The more sensitive of the 2, he studies new people for a long time and will melt your heart with his huge grin. He will sit in one place and play by himself for hours. His new favorite "food" is Popsicles...he will roll to you faster than you can count to 3 if you have one in your hand! He is starting to scoot and gets very frustrated when he sees Wade crawling and being independent. He is almost there...anytime now!The boys went on their first real vacation this past weekend! We went to Cedar Key with Nana and LaLa, (formerly known as Ganty Lowie). We had an absolute blast and could not keep the boys out of the water! We even gave them their baths at night in the baby pool with warm water. I thinks the pics say it all.....Going, Going.....
Gone....(No children or animals were harmed during the taking of this photo...)

Sun and Sand

The boys have had a great past couple of days...They made a platter for Mommy on Mother's Day...And picked Mommy a flower (and let me take a nap and sleep in...!!)Played in the sand for the first time with their best little girlfriend Campbell
and then found out that sand tastes horrible... and also found out how exhausting the sand can be! What a day! Uncle Jon, Aunt Whitney and Uncle Larry loved the sand too...Swam in their new pool from Grammie and Pops at Nana's house
Wade explored every inch of Nana's house and was fascinated with Gus and Gil on the back porchand helped Daddy grill chicken tonight for dinner!
