The boys are 8 months old and going strong. They wear size 12 month clothes, but can still fit into their 9 months. They each weigh right around 20 pounds. Tucker has 2 teeth and is a crawling machine. Carter isn't crawling, but he still gets around faster than Tucker by doing the army crawl. He drags his legs and pulls himself with his arms. All I can say is this child is going to have some incredible arm muscles if he keeps this up. Brayden is the largest baby, and is not crawling or scooting. I guess it's hard to pull that much weight around. He loves being in the exersaucer, jumping and exploring. They are eating 3 meals a day now, with a snack and bedtime bottle (so 5 times a day). They nap for 2 hours once a day and that's it right now. We are going to have to find a way to adjust our schedule though, they need more sleep and it shows. By the end of the day we have some fussy, whiny babies. Carter is notorious for falling asleep at the dinner table. We no longer have swings to cat nap in... Oh, how sad! They are all sitting up. Brayden has a little trouble staying balanced and he can't go into a siting position on his own. We go for our evaluation next Tuesday. I'm anxious to see what they have to say.

I've completed my first week of school. WOW. What an adjustment! But I'm still alive and it will only get better from here. ...right?
