the little guys:)

Conall and Declan at the toy box (Dec's actually helping Conall move his hands so he can close it...he really does love his brother!).
At the park last Friday for our playdate.  Still too cold for my thin blood, but the boys enjoyed being outside!

The little guys and the big guy:)

Declan being silly before bedtime!

Standing up with Tow Mater:)

Conall laughing, wish you could hear it:)

Bed head!

Napping after a long day:)

8 months

 Oh my gosh, Conall is eight months old today!  He's growing and developing so quickly, we can hardly keep up with him:)  As you can tell we couldn't get him to sit still for a picture:)  He's been crawling for quite awhile now and pulling up on everything.  He's started to make his way down the couch and on the window sills, even took a few steps behind his brothers truck...definitely not ready for him to walk, but we think it will happen pretty soon.  Conall seems to like pureed apples, potatoes and black beans and even had some graham cracker yesterday, which he demolished!  We think his two little bottom teeth are about to get some friends up top, he's not a great teether, so this should be fun!  He's a sleep fighter, as in when it comes time to go to sleep he lasts til the 9th round!  He's up about every 3 hours after one 4 hour stretch, but normally gets in 2 decent naps.  He's definitely taken after Declan in the sleeping department:)  We love his raspy laugh and wide smile, just as much as he likes to try to get everything Declan has (Declan does not like that).  Happy 8 months boo 2, we love you!

2 years + 8 months

Oh, Declan B. you keep us on our toes!  We just noticed the other day what a big guy he actually is, loves to do things himself (getting undressed is so funny to watch), help out with everything (currently setting the table is a fun one) and of course know everything...from why to where and what!  We love how inquisitive and informative he is.  When he sees something he wants to know what it's doing and why and after we answer he lets it all sink in and doesn't forget a detail:)  He's still an eater, we seriously can't believe how much eats!  Even after eating a huge dinner (mostly tri colored noodles and chicken, it's what he wants everyday) he'll say he's still hungry!  One of our favorite things he says these days is "how about....", when you ask him what he wants to eat or where to go.  He still loves Mickey Mouse, but is really into Buzz Lightyear too.  We've been working really hard on sharing with Conall, pretty sure we'll still be working on it when he's 16!  He's doing so well in school and is signed up for preschool next year!  Can't believe he'll be in preschool, but am super excited for him.  I think he's ready for the warm weather (not as ready as I am), he wants to go on bike rides, go to the pool and the park and we can't wait to take him:)  Ahh, only 4 month til he turns 3...we're going to enjoy the heck out of these next months!  
Love you boo!

Conall D

This is how Conall has been crawling around lately:)  He's figured out if he wants a toy to go with him, this is the way to do it!  Declan's at the table "working on my station" (coloring a fire station) telling him that's not the way to carry things around! 

Happy Valentine's Day

Love, Declan and Conall:)

Counting fingers:)

Declan has really been into numbers and counting lately and last night I was able to get him counting his fingers:)  This has helped him to remember it's 1-2-3-4-5 and not 1-2-3-9-10!

Dad and Declan went sledding today!  Declan was so excited to go:)  BC took him over to the park to go down a little hill.  He loved being pulled, especially when BC went fast!


Off they go!
When they got back Declan didn't want to come inside, so they decided to shovel snow out front.  I think they were going to make a snowman, but it was more fun to just pile it up:)

This is the view from inside, where Conall and I were staying warm!

Declan's turn shoveling!

King of the snow hill!

Finally, he decided to come in:)

And this is what happened after dad and Declan had their hot chocolate:)

Tunnel video

Tunnel of fun

So we haven't left the house in a long, long while, which leads to a bit of cabin fever (why is it called that?), but out came the tent and tunnel and the little guys were laughing and actually playing with each other:)

On the move...

Conall has been full on crawling for a couple of weeks now, but I haven't had a chance to catch him with the camera.  I think we forgot how much stuff we need to keep him away from, he's reminding us quickly though!
