Its been almost a month since my last post and I am finding it hard to believe that I have been so aloof with posting :( But then.....then I remember that I am now back at work and time seems to go by in a different way! Being back at work is nice but being both a professional teacher and mom is hard work. When I get home I am exhausted but I still manage to get the boys out exploring and playing with friends.
Brycen has some solid head control now and enjoyed being in a sitting position. He has explored the jumper and rolled over from his belly to his back a few weeks ago. He is not a fan of belly time but we make sure to try it each day. He loves to look in the mirror and just started holding objects and interacting with them by exploring his sense of touch and taste. His favorite by far is Azul his bunny rattle from his Busia.
We look forward to bringing him to his four month appointment. I would be surprised if he weighs in at less them 16 pounds. Already he can fit into Carter's (which run small in my opinion) size 18 month LOL. That is what he is wearing in that photo with Gavin at the top. In Gap clothes he is wearing 6-12 months and I think he will out grow them soon. Like Gavin he has a long torso which makes onesies a difficult fit. Here are some special photos of him exploring his world...

|Bath time without the hammock!|
|Gavin feeding Brycen :)|
Gavin's skills are exploding around us. Some new favorites are feeding himself cereal with milk, climbing out of his crib and climbing up his dresser (this makes me very nervous though we temporarily ceased it), and using new vocabulary in context. Some of his favorite words/phrases are "nice", "gross", "one more please", and "let's go". Though we have language barriers still he has found a variety of ways to express what he wants and how he is feeling.
