Drake and Hunter are 2 years old ...

As I write the title of the blog I wonder how that happened? How did my boys suddenly become 2? I feel like life is flying by and there is no way to slow it down. My precious preemie babies have grown into incredibly smart toddlers, and I am so proud of them.

They speak very clearly and talk all the time.

They are wearing size 18 month shorts and size 8 and 24 month shirts.

They wear size 5 Pampers Cruisers.

Their hair grows like their daddy's does! They constantly need a hair cut!

They started taking showers this month with mommy. They say it is "raining" in the shower.

They are absolutely amazing with their little brother. If he makes any type of noise they tell is "Luke is crying!"

Hunter especially likes to lay on the activity mat with Luke. He has also picked up that I talk to Luke in a higher pitch baby voice, so now so does he. It melts my heart.

They often ask to hold him.

They understand when I am nursing that Luke is eating milk. They have completely adjusted to me nursing and are doing great!

They started saying their names and their age this month.

Their voices absolutely melt my heart!!

They love to watch Barney, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Caillou, Chuggington, and Mickey Mouse.

They say "Come on" when they want you to go with them.

They ask to eat when they are hungry.

They love pop-tarts, and I love hearing them say this word.

They say please, thank you, and Hunter says welcome for your welcome. Drake has not picked up the your welcome yet.

They consistently pick up two toys, cups, snacks etc and take the other one to their brother. They are very thoughtful of each other.

This month they LOVE to wrestle. I don't love it so much, but oh well ;)

Drake loves to get kisses when he gets a bo-bo! If I am nursing and can't kiss him at that moment he will kiss it himself, lol.

They get so excited for daddy to get home from work. They spend the entire evening playing with him.

Drake started to be able to catch a ball when you throw it to him.

They are definitely becoming more attached to me since I am home with them now. I know August will probably be a hard transition for them.

They don't go to bed until 9 pm now since they are staying home with me. This helps me because they sleep until 9 or 9:30 am, and I am able to catch up on some sleep after getting up with Luke. They nap at 2 pm.

They bring us books and tell us "read"

They learned our names this month. They know that daddy is Brandon and mommy is Ashley.

They figured out that their bath numbers and letters can stick to the walls and not just the bath tub.

They love to brush their teeth.

Drake still calls his blanket a "night night" and Hunter calls it a blankie.

They ask for their "Barney Pillow" which is their pillow pet.

There is not many things they say that we can't figure out what they are saying.

They always eat with a fork. Hunter struggles with a spoon, Drake is pretty good with a spoon.

Hunter is still sensitive to cold foods, but has started to understand he can bite things with his side teeth and it does not hurt.

They love oatmeal and pronounce it "me-meal"

They had a Barney birthday with family on Saturday April 20th! Since we would have a new baby I decided not do a huge birthday and have family only. This was still nearly 40 people. They loved their Barney balloons! They got a ton of neat toys! Several cars, remote control cars, a toy box that Pop built them, a mickey mouse table, a train track, Mickey Mouse books, superman capes and balls! It was a great day and they had a blast!
