Long time no post!

It's been awhile since I've posted to the blog, so forgive the mass amount of cuteness you are about to see! The boys are doing GREAT! Sean's speech is continuing to improve daily (he has quite the vocab now!) and Nathan is growing like a weed!!! Hard to believe he'll be two months on Wednesday!!! Here's a quick recap of all we've been up to:

Last Monday we made the trip to St. Louis for Sean's check up with the endocrinologist. Once we got there, they told us that the doctor didn't work there on Monday's (she was at the hospital). This Mommy was about ready to go CRAZY on the lady (she of course was oh-so-pleasant), but she did call to see if they could see us there at the actual hospital. Thankfully they could, but it was another 30 minutes to get there. Sean was an absolute angel all day (thankfully)!

Once we got there, they did some measurements and checked his height and weight. He's grown 1.5 centimeters since his appointment in March, so that was good progress. A normal child his age grows about five centimeters in a year, so he would be on track at this rate. HOWEVER, what they said is that he's still not catching up. So we, along with the doctor, decided to wait until February of next year to do the testing. Rather than poke and prod at Sean now, we decided to wait one year since having his tonsils and adenoids removed to see what that does and then we'll go from there. Kind of disappointing to hear that we still have to "wait and see", but I'm getting better at it! They weighed him in at 23.1 pounds, so he's gained a little, but not a lot. Time will tell!

He is continuing to amaze us with his vocabulary every day! His phrasing and sentences are really coming along nicely. We have decided (along with the therapist) to hold off on speech for now and have him re-evaluated at the end of the summer to see where we are at. He is extremely animated and completely in love with his cousins, grandma and grandpa, Mickey Mouse, "Choo-choo trains" and Cars (the movie). I'll tell ya, he is one funny kiddo and we just love him to pieces!

My baby. This Wednesday I return to work part time and then full time on the 13th. I thought I was ready for this, and although it is a little easier the second time around, I have found my self a little more emotional this week! What is it about babies that makes you able to just stare at them for hours and hours? He is such a snuggler and is starting to smile more and more every day! Melts Mommy's heart - that's for sure! He's a really good baby and is starting to become a really good sleeper (such a change from Sean!) Just hoping he's sleeping really well by the week of August 16th when Jamie heads to Colorado for one week! YIKES!

Well, that's enough for this post. Now for the pictures!!! :-)
