We have not really been doing much new to write about, but it has been a little while since I posted. Ben is back at work and pretty much back into the swing of things. He is glad to be working again, but misses his time at home with the boys and I. The boys and I have been working on getting back into a schedule of our own as well. I think that both of them are getting new teeth (I have not gotten a good look in their mouths though) because they have been horribly cranky, not sleeping well, not eating great, and their diapers have been pretty nasty recently. We have been battling with some major tantrums recently, but I have learned that getting out of the house does help limit the number of tantrums. I am pretty sure this is the beginning of the terrible two's...

I have started to get all of the supplies needed for their birthday party which is only a week away. I can't believe they will be 2 years old in only 11 days!! I need to start going through their clothes and put away the ones that are too small so that we can start looking ahead for cooler weather clothes.

Here are a few pictures from the past few weeks that I wanted to share. The boys have really started to explore the big boy equipment when we go to the playground. It makes it more difficult for me to take them alone because they like to climb everything and Zak has no fear of doing anything!

Here is a picture of Robin from the other day that Natalie took. She is getting so big and really is a good puppy...

Batman has definitely come out of his shell with the boys which is nice to see. He lets them pet him, chase him around, and he likes to give them kisses. The other day in the car he was sitting on my lap and out of the blue he jumped into the back seat and got into Zak's lap. It surprised us, but Zak loved it!
Now for a comparison picture (I love looking at comparisons)...
