Big Week

So many changes are happening this week....Apple said his first word on Monday, "Dog", he took his first independent steps on Tuesday,Boo's top two teeth came in and they both have started to play peek-a-boo with their hands instead of just a blanket and it is so cute!
Boo is also starting to laugh like a little girl instead of giggling like a baby. She loves to look at herself in the mirror and laugh.
They are also getting very curious and are really starting to play with each other, yesterday Kevin had them down to just their diapers for lunch and he turned around in time to catch Boo taking Apple's diaper off, Apple thought it was hilarious!
They are also getting a bit mischievous....

Pump it Up!

I just never knew who I was until I was a mother. Who knew I would be so adamant about my kids not having processed foods?! Well, they do eat whole grain goldfish now because Kevin gave them to them and LOVE them so I let that go, however, that has been about the extent of it. And whole-grain Cheerios. I am glad they have been given the opportunity to learn healthy eating habits right from the start and I am content knowing we have given them everything we can.
Who else knew I would still be pumping away after 14 months and still not be ready to give it up? Well, sometimes when it is late and I am sitting there while Kevin starts dozing off I think I will stop but I am just not ready. It is so good for their little brains and why not give them everything I've got?! When did you give up nursing? Did you go longer on your last child because you knew you would never do it again?

Little Apple

Sometimes when Apple is on my shoulders or I am holding him and he catches a glimpse of my earring, he puts his gentle little hand flat on my check and turns my head....I can't explain it but it makes me smile every time he does it. I will try and catch it on video. It is just precious, the feel of his soft, warm little hand and the quizzical look on his face....

Grandpa & Boo

Boo has been having a rough couple of days, not sure if she is getting another tooth or what but it seems like Grandpa is helping her feel better!
So sweet!
