Nothing Better!

I have decided there is nothing better than 2 boys and beautiful weather. We have had temperatures in the 90s since the weekend. I had hoped to post last week but did not have the chance. Things have been crazy.

Austin has started T ball and is quite the hoot! 4 year olds swinging bats can be a little scary at times. They are all so cute and he really loves it. We were surprised at how fast he has blended with the other kids. Shane is acting as assistant coach and Austin is going between the groups at practice without difficulty. We were scared he would be clingy. He also enjoys cheering on his teammates. Since the weather has been nice, he has gone to play golf 2 times and wants to play outside almost every day. He has more energy than I think I would even know what to do with.

T ball practice - stretching, fielding and hitting

Caleb likes it outside too. He has enjoyed his stroller rides and swing on the swing set. Last week he had his 6 month well check. Beefcake now weighs in at 17 pounds 8 ounces and is over 26 inches long. His attempts to sit up are becoming much more successful. Last weekend, he actually showed us that he can sit up for about 15 seconds before finally toppling over. He continues to limit his bottle intake at times but they think that is due to the reflux. He will usually take the bottles for me once we get home at night. He will eat food from a spoon from whoever places it close to his mouth! We are still waiting for his first tooth but continue to think it will show up at any time due to the crankiness and constant drool!

Caleb's New Favorite Game:
Where's the baby?

There he is!!

Caleb's first attempts at sitting...

Did not last long and ended like this! (no babies were injured!!)

On a more serious note, my grandmother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer about a month or so ago. She went in for surgery last Tuesday and has had good and bad days since. Yesterday, they decided that she must have a bowel perforation and took her back to surgery last night (as per her decision). I immediately went to Greenville to be with my dad. Things went well but she is very sick and still on the ventilator this afternoon. We can only hope for the best over the next 48 hours. Please keep the entire family in your prayers.

Last, I went and had the boys' pictures made on Saturday afternoon. They turned out great! If you are in the Cary or Greenville area, I cannot say enough good things about Portrait Innovations. They rock! My sister went today to get Carter's pictures taken and said the studio in Greenville did an awesome job as well. Until next time.....
