It's been an insanely amount of time since I've blogged. I just saw an old post from October 2011 with a picture of the boys. How different they look now! I'd like to attach a picture but not sure how to do it from the iPad.
I'll write more later. I'm tired.

Miss me?

So it has been over a year since I've posted to this blog. I can only blame one thing...Facebook. I joined Facebook and it was all over. And I can't promise I am truly back. Life is busy with two kids. But we are having fun. Well not actually right now. We are still recovering from our house being broken into last week. It is quite a terrifying experience. We were not home but still. It is very scary coming home to find your stuff has been stolen and the realization that someone was in your house. Now we are bracing against Hurricane Sandy. Prepared as much as we can be, waiting it out. Looking forward to Halloween. Hopefully we can have one. The boys are Luke Skywalker, Nicholas and maybe a frog for Alexander. He has several options and last week he picked the frog. Not much else for me to say today. So peace out!

I am addicted to online shopping. It is a blessing and a curse.
It is really hard to shop withtwo little children and stores half an hour drive away. So online shopping is wonderful. I can shop in my pjs I can shop on the toilet. Its great.
However, it is always available....and is way to easy to type in the 'ol credit card number and hit "order". And I hate paying for shipping so I'll usually buy a minimum to get free shipping.
But I will take a moment to advocate ShopAtHome. It's a site that gives you cash back just for clicking on the links and shopping through it. It also provides coupon codes for % off discounts and shipping discounts.
I think I started using it in 2008 after little nicholas arrived and it was hard to get out. Since then I've saved over $400 in cash back. I use it for everything from clothes, gifts, computers, airline travel, you name it.
That's all I'm done.
Oh, look to the sidebar for a ShopAtHome link.

Yo Ho Ho

The boys say "Yo Ho Ho"


It's hard to say which theme wins out lately: moving or eating. Alexander is busy with both.
He isn't crawling yet but he rolls and sort of scoots. Mostly backwards. He'll scoot himself under the sofa with just his head sticking out. I am still trying to get a picture. But he usually ends up crying once he gets stuck. He gets up on all fours and rocks but then flops back to his belly.
He has mastered sitting himself up from a laying down position. It's so cute to leave him on his belly to come back and find him sitting up.
He also LOVES food. He is not happy with just a bottle anymore. For example, just yesterday we were in the car and he was ready for a nap. So I try to give him a bottle thinking it will put him out. No he screamed. I said fine here's a graham cracker. He proceeds to chow it down and fall asleep. I couldn't believe it! I weighed him last week at home and he's 18 pounds. My big boy.
He LOVES the cat. He wants to grab her. And gets excited when he sees her.
He is still a happy little baby and most of the time pretty darn easy.
He has 3 teeth, 2 bottom front and one top front. He is cutting his other top front and it is taking forever to come in. It really bothers him at times.
So here are a bunch of pictures. I've gotten several of the boys together. So cute.

Mrs. Clean

I cleaned the top of my refrigerator today. Why? That's probably what you are asking. Well I got into the cabinets above the fridge to get out the roasting pan. Why wouldn't I roast a chicken when it's 85 degrees and humid. I digress.
My point is, it's amazing what a little Lysol spray and a magic eraser will do.

Alexander: 7 Months

This is Alexander today. Exactly 7 months old.

I've said it before and I'll probably keep saying it: Slow down with the growing, already! This little guy is just developing so fast. I want my baby to stay a baby, well for a while longer at least.

So what's he doing?

Well he's rolling, scooting, sitting up, he gets up on his hands and knees and rocks. He scoots backwards. And just yesterday I watched him go from belly to sitting position. OMG! Not that he's mastered it by any means but this is what I am talking about. Slow Down!

He's interested in everything! Especially his brother's things. He loves watching Nicholas and other kids as well, I learned this week. He of course puts everything in his mouth.

Is he eating?

Why yes. He loves food. He is learning to like the spoon. He would much rather have pieces he can grab. So he pretty much eats anything I think he won't choke on: pancake, Puffs, peas, green beans, banana (a favorite), melon, sweet potato, butternut squash, acorn squash, apple, pear, bread. He likes that net thingy which I put apples and melon in.

He LOVES the cup. If you have a cup, he eyes it and wants it. I am so surprised he can actually drink out of it. He can.

Does he have teeth?

He has his bottom teeth he got at 5 months and is getting one of his top teeth now. I wouldn't be surprised that his other one soon follows.

He is just such a sweetheart. A happy little guy and silly personality.
