Nice Weather

The boys woke up today in pretty good moods which is a nice change from the last few days. I think they are finally starting to get over this virus that has lingered since the beginning of December. They ate pretty good today which they have not been doing. It has been a long 2 weeks filled with lots of diarrhea, coughing, snot, gagging, spit up, and breathing treatments. Their wheezing has gotten much better so we are going to stop the breathing treatments and just use the inhaler when needed. They go back to the pediatrician on Thursday for a check-up to make sure their lungs have improved.

Today the weather is gorgeous and in the low 60's! Once the boys ate breakfast I got them dressed and we headed out to the bank and Target; they behaved great while we were out. At Target I got the boys' stockings and some stocking stuffers along with more Pediasure for Ryder. When we got home it was so nice outside that we played in the yard for a bit and the boys loved it. Zak started to get a little crazy and tried to run off down the sidewalk so I decided it was time to go inside and have lunch. Now they are laying down for a nap, but not so sure they are actually asleep yet though. Ryder has now perfected the "bear" crawl which is when he crawls around on his hands and feet with his butt up in the air. I will try to get a video of him doing it, but usually he stops when the camera comes out. Zak's new favorite toy is a little piano that he will play, pick up and carry around, then sit it down and play again. Ben and I are going to start going through toys and taking out the "baby" toys since these boys are no longer babies. We plan to either sell them at the consignment shop, keep them for Madelyn and a future kid, or offer them to other members of my MOM club who have younger kids.

I wanted to post some pictures of them from today, I love the outfits they wore! Also, we love their early x-mas present from Aunt Chelley...they eat breakfast and lunch at it everyday.
