New things

Exciting things!!

Crew is ROLLING OVER!!! yay!! poor kid hates tummy time so he doesn't get it much...especially with Cooper around. The second he starts crying Cooper goes a little crazy too. SO when he kept rolling over from his tummy to back we were a little shocked! The kid does the same moves and tries hard to get his arms in the perfect spot. But he's a pro! I have a video of course but it takes forever to up load (I need to figure out how to do it differently).

Cooper seems to be advancing with everything. More specifically he recognizes the shape of a star, knows the letter M and S. And when I ask where the letter U is he points to himself :) Super cute! It only took 2 full days to teach him to stay out of the tree! He's LOVING baths more (how is that possible??!) when he's in it he says it's "ni aka nice over and over. He would sit and splash forever if we let him.

I am loving my job and start NICU in January. I am super nervous but will learn a LOT about babies. It's a different world with babies and I am excited to start that journey. But I do love working on the pediatric unit for now. It's AMAZING!! I miss my boys when I am at work but in all honesty...I need a little adult time and they need that play time/structured learning time. Crew isn't afraid of anybody and Cooper absolutely loves to play with other children. He's a much happier child since we started back at day care. He gets so bored playing with mom! They only go 2 days a week and I'm happy with that.

Brady is doing awesome at work as always. They are in the process of hiring a new receptionist, which is good experience for him. He had his ankle looked at and we are considering doing corrective surgery on it at some point but the recovery time is ridiculous so we're going to wait a year or two (his ligaments are completely detached from his ankle so there is not much support except a little muscle).

So that's us recently. A lot of changes going on. We are always crazy busy but we are trying to enjoy our little boys as much as we can!!
