Big News AND 1st Birthday

Okay...the big news...are you ready...Adam took a few steps. He's not officially walking, but he's been walking a few feet at a time. This is a HUGE milestone in his development. Chris and I are so excited. And Adam is so cute about it; he's so proud of himself. My little baby is almost walking!!! Proud daddy thinks he'll be walking by next week.

Ben is standing up without holding on to anything. He's becoming quite a pro at this. And Jacob's doing a lot of dancing. His favorite song is "Barbara Ann" by the Beach Boys. Gotta love it!

And they're drinking out of regular sippy cups. Thanks Aunt Suzette for the Halloween sippys!

We can't forget about their birthday. Adam, Jacob and Ben had breakfast in bed (a Bible family tradition). Well, it wasn't a big breakfast. They just had their bottles. They weren't too happy that mommy and daddy woke them up (Chris wanted to see them before he left for work).

Then we went to lunch with Grandma B. at Bob Evans. Their FIRST lunch at a restaraunt (I usually feed them before we leave). They had mac & cheese, broccoli and ice cream. I must say they did quite well. Then we had birthday dinner at IHOP with mommy & daddy, Grandma P. and Grandma & Grandpa B. They had scrambled eggs, french toast and of cream. Love that IHOP!
Their birthday party was the following Saturday. In attendance were Great-Great Grandma E., Great-Grandma & Grandpa B., Great-Grandma & Grandpa J., Great-Grandma & Grandpa P., Grandma P., Grandma & Grandpa B., Great-Aunt Sharon & Uncle Bob, Great-Aunt Jeanie & Uncle Gene, Aunt Jen, Uncle Jeff, cousin Logan, Aunt Connie, cousin Kyliah and cousin Cassie. Whew, that's a lot of Greats! It's awesome that all the grandparents were able to come. It was nice to see everyone. Of course, it was a Moose A. Moose themed party. Unfortunately, you can't find Moose A. Moose anything, so I didn't have any Moose decorations. But, Grandma B. to the rescue! She made Moose cakes and Zee cupcakes. They were so adorable, and they tasted good too!

Next, it was time to open up presents. Logan helped the boys with their gifts. He was so excited. He picked out a book for the boys, and he couldn't wait to for them to see it. The boys also got some toys and clothes. Thank you to everyone for the gifts.

This guy looks like trouble!

Great-Great Grandma & Jacob

Too cute!

We also went to see Dr. Einhaus and the ladies. Next time, mommy needs to go when I'm more caffenated. I was a zombie that day! We also went to the zoo and had lunch at DQ ALL BY OURSELVES. Mommy was very proud of herself! The boys were so good. We are so lucky...they're such good boys. They just hung out in their stroller and ate their chicken and ice problems.
The boys also had their 1 year checkup. Adam weighs 19lbs. 15oz. and is 29" tall, Jacob weighs 19lbs. 10oz. and is 30" tall, and our small fry, Ben,weighs 17lbs. 6oz. and is 28 1/2" tall. They're all doing quite well, with the exception of their size. Dr. Dillon doesn't seem too concerned as long as they keep growing (especially in height). Right now, Ben is in the 3-5% for weight, and Adam and Jacob are in the 10-25% for weight. Keep growing boys!!!!
Well, I'm going to go shower. It's been a long day. By the way, this took me about a week to write. I'll try to update sooner, but I have a little fellow that just doesn't want to sleep. Take care everyone!
