Cal Update and Our Lives Lately...

Happy FRIDAY before a long weekend!!  Wooooo! Now that Cal is 7 weeks old, I wanted to write an update on our schedule - an update from this post which I wrote out my scheduling goal and where I wanted to be around this time. 

Here is where we are at...he is really doing great and I couldn't be happier.

I can't believe it's September and Labor Day Weekend. We are loving summer and don't want it to end. If time could just pause right now, it would be great. Conor and Caden are doing awesome. I love being home. I feel less "mom guilt". They are really fun and we are enjoying each other a lot. I have seen huge growth, and a lot of speech improvement. They are understanding and saying words that aren't just labeling objects (more than just "airplane", "sun", "car", etc). While I am thrilled they can label almost anything at this point, it's nice to see them say words like "dance" while doing a little wiggle...and also say "stuck" when opening something...or "my turn" when they want something that I have. They are also [finally] starting to string a few words together. To me, it shows they are really comprehending more and developing their language.



Storytime and pics before bed!



And the following morning. :)




We visited Auntie Chrissy at work the other day. Cal cried a ton haha but he did well on the way home in traffic. Out like a light!

Playing in Grammy and Papa's backyard! Brothers in the background.



I love these pics. They are interacting more and more and more each day. It's SO fun to watch. Not only is their actual language developing, but also their "twin language" is developing too. They have conversations between the two of them and babble and make the same noises...or stomp on the floor back and forth...or give each other toys and say "here Caden"...or "here Conor". It's the cutest.



Mommy and Con. This is so our relationship. Conor is very calm, sweet, thoughtful, and cuddly.


Mommy and Cay. This is SO our relationship, too! Caden is very inquisitive, silly, sweet, and fun.


All three!

Cal's new play mat! It really keeps him awake...lol.



All three sleeping boys last night...so lucky to have these guys in my life.





All for now! Enjoy your long weekend!

Shaz
