Shame on me for not making every effort to meet my goal of blogging on time. I am behind, of course. I do have plenty of pictures so hopefully that will make up for it :)
Over the last week, the boys have really become interactive with each other. Up to that point, they would look over at each other and sometimes smile at each other, and my favorite would be when I'd catch them holding hands. Now, we've started sitting them right in front of each other so they can be face to face and they love it. They smile and laugh at each other, reach out to touch on each other, and they have even talked to each other a few times. My inlaws were over last night and we had them face to face and Ethan made a noise at Lucas and Lucas responded with the same noise twice. It was so sweet. So I guess twin talk has officially begun. Catching it on camera is a must!
We finally FINALLY got some snow at the end of last week. Probably about 4in which is a lot for us. They call for snow often in the forecast and 9 times out of 10 we get little to none so we were pleasantly surprised to actually get snow this time. James, being the big kid that he is, was super excited to play in the snow and we were both excited to see the boys in their snow suits and see their first reaction to snow. Although they didn't stay out but for a few minutes, they did make snow angels.
The boys are sitting up now, unassisted. Sometimes it's for quite a while, other times it's just for a few minutes, but we are so proud of them. It seemed to happen for both of them in the same day. We were sitting them up to get them used to it and they just automatically were able to sit up. I tried first with Ethan, then later with Lucas. I was only able to get a picture of Ethan while Lucas was sleeping and wasn't able to catch him when he did it. Sadly, I haven't taken a whole lot of pictures lately, which I totally need to be better about doing, so I don't have one of Lucas yet.
If you look closely, you can see Ethan's teeth! Luke's in the process of teething. Oh yeah, Lucas is referred to as Luke by me, sometimes. I don't think I've done it on here yet, but I do. He was having a painful afternoon today. We tried the teething tablets for the first time today...not sure if they worked though because the bottle followed soon after and that always calms them.
I wanted to add a few cute pics of Lucas, but for whatever reason, it's not working right now to add more pictures.
