This has been a busy month for us, which is why I haven't posted anything in a while!  But I'm going to try to update as well as I can since the boys are sleeping right now.

Trey turned two on the 6th!  I can hardly believe it.  We celebrated by having a bunch of his little friends over to our house for lunch and cupcakes and playing.  He wasn't sure about that at first (having to share his toys and the craziness of it all) but ended up having tons of fun.  The next day we had our immediate family party (grandparents, great-grandparents, cousin, aunts and uncles) at Pj's parent's home for a bbq and cake and presents.  By the time his real birthday on Sunday rolled around, we were all so tired we slept the day away!  I've been looking through his baby book this week and its amazing to see how much he has changed since that day we brought him home from the hospital!

Poor Trey has pretty much been sick the whole month.  He had the one cold which led to breathing problems.  He never really recovered fully from that before catching another cold which gave him a bad ear infection.  Today is the last day of his antibiotics for that so we're just hoping and praying he stays healthy for a while now!  We made the decision to keep home from church for a while atleast because it seemed like every Tuesday after being in Sunday School he would start getting sick.  I'm also being really careful to sanitize everything.  Normally I wouldn't mind a cold hear and there but the poor kid gets so extremely sick when he does get one.

We had a fun Thanksgiving with both sides of our family.  We had the big meal with Pj's family and some of his relatives from PA that we don't often get to see anymore.  That was so much fun!  Then we drove over to my parent's home for dessert along with most of my siblings.  It was a long day but worth it and the boys slept VERY well that night and the next day!  Its been really great too because Pj has a few days off for the first time in ages so we are enjoying time with him that we usually don't get.  Trey especially is enjoying having his Daddy around (and awake;-)) to wrestle with and play trains with.

Lately Trey has spent his time reading books to himself, playing imaginary games with his stuffed animals and look action figures, building his train set, finger painting, playing with playdough (or "pee-oo" as he calls it).  He loves to run and play ball still.  Often when he gets spurts of energy he will just run back and forth in our hallway with his ball, chasing the dog, or just running for the sake of running.  It's so hilarious to watch!

Ethan is growing so fast too!  At his 2 month appointment he was over 12 lbs and 21 (and something) inches tall.  He is a very very chubby little baby!  He is 2 1/2 months old now... but is already starting to wear some of his 3-6 outfits.  He has very long arms and legs and a huge tummy!  It's so funny to see him in the bathtub... just rolls of chubbiness... so cute!  Speaking of which, he loves the bath... he will splash around and laugh and smile.  He also loves when we sing to him.  I have a few special songs that I only sing when he's upset and they usually always calm him down and make him laugh.  He is a pretty mellow, laid back kid.  He loves to lay on his playmat and bat at toys or sit on someone's lap and watch everything that is going on.

I could go on, but that's it for now.  Trey is awake... and so Mommy time is over;-)  Enjoy the pics!
