Good Parent = Bad Blogger
My absence can be easily explained in two photos...
Busy, busy boys...morning until night (and sometimes during)...and we wouldn't trade them for the world!

Theo and His Chins
When it comes to metric weight conversions, I don't have a clue. So when the doctor told us that Theodore was gaining weight really well and weighs 5690 grams, I just smiled and said "That's great!" When I got home, I popped onto my favorite conversion site and got the English version. 12 lbs. 8 oz. Go Theo! Go!
As if we couldn't tell by looking at him...check out those cheeks and extra chin!
However, this smile is not from today. The 2 month appointment is not a pleasant one. 4 shots, 2 in each leg. I don't know what pulled at my heart-strings more, Theo crying when he got stuck with the needles or Ollie crying because "my baby brudder Fee-a-dore has two owies, Mommy!"

Is it in the Genes?
Do you see why we get their names mixed up?!
Everyday is a flashback to 2 years ago...in looks only though. The two couldn't be more different! Theodore is so content to eat, sleep and poop. Oliver..."I go play! I GO PLAY!! IIII GOOOOO PLAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!"

Mommy's Not-So-Little Helper
Where does the time go?! We've been home for 11 days and have settled into somewhat of a "routine". For those of you that are already laughing at that statement (you know who you are!)...ppplllllllllllllllllbbbbbbbbbbbbbbtttttttttthhhh!
As you can see, I have all the help I need! Oliver turned into a big brother overnight. It cracks us up that he's gone from "No like it the baby" before Theodore to "I'M COMING FEE-DA-DORE!!" at the tiniest of his whimpers. Oliver loves to "hold, feed and help change" Theo, even if it means leaving his obsession of the moment. Overnight, Oliver has turned into a good eater and sound sleeper. As far as two-year olds go, he gets a big shiny gold star in our books.
Theo's working hard at getting back to his birth weight, a difficult task when there's so much sleeping and pooping to be done! He's a bit of a dream these days but not to worry, two years isn't long enough to forget that stuff like that doesn't last.
