Growing Boys

Brock's 3 Year Check-up

I took the boys (I love saying "the boys") in today for their check-ups with Dr. Mumford. Brock had his 3 year check-up. He is doing awesome. Dr. Mumford was so impressed with him. He passed the eye exam and pointed to the right shapes when he was asked what they were. Brock had to get one shot today. We let Brody go first so Brock could watch. Then the nurse asked Brock if he wanted a turn. To her surprise he said "yes". As soon as his pants were down the nurse gave him the shot. With tears in his eyes and a surprised look on his face he said "did she just give me a shot?" I said "yes". When he knew it was true that's when the crying began. Luckily it didn't last long at all. He did awesome. Brock is a growing boy! Check out his stats:
Height: 39 in-84%
Weight: 34 lbs-78%
Brody's 2 Month Check-up

Brody is made of steel! He did awesome at his check-up today as well. Dr. Mumford was impressed with his growth. They were surprised when they measured his height, they said "that can't be right?", so they measured again and it was the same outcome. He did have to get 3 shots today. He is a tough little boy, only cried a few seconds. Check out his unbelievable stats:
Height: 23 in-40%
Weight: 13.5 lbs-81%
Head Circumference: 16.25 in-73%
Brody grew 3 in. and gained 5 lbs in 2 months. Wow! What can I say our boys are good eaters.
We are so grateful to have healthy boys. We are very proud of them and their development.

Our 2 Little Heart-Breakers

Today while I was listening and relaxing in Church, I couldn't help but think about how blessed we are to have these 2 beautiful and perfect little boys. I used to think of our infertility as a negative thing, but lately I have been THANKING our Heavenly Father for our infertility. It truly is a blessing to us. Because of IT, we have been blessed with these 2 amazing boys through the miracle of Adoption. We are proud to be apart of it, and we wouldn't trade it for anything. Just look how Good-lookin' they both are! :)

Brody is 2 Months Today

Brody is the cutest baby! Wait, so was Brock, but today it's all about Brody. Brody has changed a lot over the last few weeks. He is getting a little chub to his bones, which I like. He is cooing and smiling a ton. He is kicking his legs 100 miles per hour. I have noticed that when he sleeps he loves to have his head turned on his left side. He is most comfortable that way. I know when he's hungry and when he wants time to him self. He is sleeping all the way through the night! :) :) There is not one thing I can complain about. He is perfect in every way. We are so lucky Chanel chose us to be his parents. We thank her and Devin everyday for placing the cutest little baby to be apart of our family. We love you.

Fun with Kailee

I have the privilege to watch Kailee (Brock's cousin) twice a week. It is so much fun to see them together. I have fun creating fun things for them to do. I am teaching them the letters in the alphabet one by one. So far they can recognize and say the sound of A, B, C, and D. Once they know all the letters I will teach them how to write them. It is really rewarding to me to see them learn and memorize the letters. I love it!
