The boys are now 7 months old and for their seven month birthday they decided to give me the gift of having to take care of them while they both have colds. It's been great. Both are extremely congested and snotty so sleeping has been difficult, especially for Jake who really loves his pacifier. It is hard to breathe and suck on a pacifier at the same time when you can't get any air through your nose! But we're dealing with it and I have to believe that every night here on out is going to get better.
In addition to a cold they both each have a tooth! Jake got his first tooth on a Friday and Zach got his the following Monday. I did not expect them to get their first teeth that close together, or this early, especially since Olivia didn't get her first tooth until she was ten and a half months. Even more coincidental is that they got a tooth in the same spot - lower right front. I'm guessing that Jake will gloat over getting a tooth first as I'm sure he will about being older too.
|The weather has (kind of) started cooling off so if we can get out early enough in the morning for walks it isn't so bad. The boys, and Olivia, really like it.|
|Baby boy Zach.|
|Middle child Jake.|
|Oooh, I want that thing in your hands, Mom!|
|Dad's a funny guy!|
|Had to get all 3 of them!|
|Typical Zach trying to climb over someone to get what he wants. And typical happy-go-lucky Jake.|
|Jake's best, "But I'm an angel, Mom" face. Mmmhmm, I know better.|
|I don't know why she smiles like this with her nose all scrunched up. It's not her natural smile.|
