Where have I been???

Wow, it has been a long time since I've posted anything on here. I was recently asked to join a recipe blog and I'm hoping to get this back up and rolling again at the same time. How about an update on the boys...

Oh Micah, where to begin...He is such a complex little person. He is very active, very imaginative, very mechanical, very strong-willed but very, very sweet. His favorite saying is, "Why?" I've come to the conclusion that he uses it just as a filler word. Much like we would use the word, "Um," he uses, "why?". Yes, sometimes he really wants to know why but after the fifth or sixth why I begin to wonder. He loves playing with tools, cars, trucks, and tractors but also Play-doh, scissors, crayons, and paint. He is learning his colors and shapes and is counting things, independently, up to 4. He loves his brother and sometimes you can actually tell! :)

What a calm kid! (Now that I've written that he will wake up a bear tomorrow...) Eli is such a sweet little boy with the most even temper and a heart full of love. Often when Micah is in time-out you will find Eli right there with him; rubbing his brother's back and saying aye aye. Much like his brother, he is very mechanical and loves to play tractors. He has a great sense of humor and the funniest expressions. He has recently learned that he can yell and will do so at random times. He is a force to be reckoned with and yet a gentle giant. At his 18 month check up he was almost 28 pounds and 34 1/2 inches tall. He has started using 3 word sentences but still needs a lot of interpreting.
