Read all about it

Christmas was definitely a different experience this year. Mike got to be home with us a lot more than usual and I loved every minute of it! Santa didn't come this year but the boys got some fun presents like a new red wagon from Mike's parents!

Maguire has figured out how to get where he wants to go by scooting, rolling or army crawling. He is already over his toys and into things like cell phones and remote controls. I was loving this age because I could lay them on a blanket with toys to load the dishwasher or do some laundry and they'd be there when I got back. I'm in for it now.

We are currently on our way to Santa Cruz to see a homeopath for Keller. I'm listening to him cry as we speak. I would never under normal circumstances take them this far but we are getting desperate! The poor guy itches all of the time and his skin looks terrible. The "help" we are getting in town consists of prescriptions and steroids. I'm praying for a healthy natural alternative for him. I'll let all of you know!

Then and now

Then . . .

I got this mini video camera to take videos of the boys on a whim. I haven't been that great about it but I got it out tonight because Keller was cracking up (which of course stopped when I took out the camera). I thought I'd post one I took of them talking and fussing this evening for my Colorado family and I started flipping through old videos. I found this one of them as teeny tiny babies looking like little old adorable men. Mike was watching them with me and we were ooooing and ahhhing about how cute they were and are. I said, "let's have another one soon." He promptly left the room and I snapped back into reality. That was close.

Now . . .

Holy Guacamole

The boys had their first meal yesterday. It was organic as it comes-an avocado straight from their Papa's tree. They loved it! I watched Keller like a freak all day because I was sure he was going to have some crazy reaction but all was well-phew.
