He is on the move

Its funny, our kids may never really crawl!  Kai was an army crawler, never got his knees up under him, the arm crawl across the floor worked well enough for him until he could pull himself up and cruise along furniture.  Now with Fin, he seems fine butt scooting.  Ahmad was helping him learn he could crawl but he seems happier moving this way.  It is early still but it would be funny to me if neither 'crawled' in the traditional sense.  I like it, they beat to their own drum and carve out what works best for them.  That is the best way to live life, my munchkins!

Car seat upgrade

It barely fits into our car!  Oh good grief!

Expanding our options

This week we had the kids alone and so we ventured out on a week night for dinner.  There is a local mexican restaurant.  Fin had a container of homemade food and the options for Kai seemed safe.  It was good.  Kai loved dipping the chips in salsa and eating out.

I love every moment of raising these boys.  Each stage comes with surprises and it is all happening way too fast!

Bath Time

The night time routine is getting a bit easier for us.  Kai has fun in the tub, once coerced into taking a bath and Fin, well he LOVES the water!  Ahmad and I laugh that these boys have it nice, bath time involves a jacuzzi tub... its kinda like the sitcom that was around we were we little with Richie Rich (did i just date myself?).

Sunday Funday

This weekend we had the kids to ourselves, we did the park and then lunched at a local favorite spot.  I find it funny, we are never too sure what Kai will want to eat so we pretty much order one of all his favorites (soup, cheeseburgers, fries, pasta...).  Kai picked the table and sat in a grown up chair while Fin dined on homemade baby food.

Fin and I picked up an ice cream cone for Ahmad while Kai napped in the car... yeah, we are one of those parents.

Happy 6mth Birthday

 Wait can you believe it, he is 6months old already.  He is growing fast and is oh so strong and such a happy little man.
The doctor was so surprised he could clap his hands already.  She also commented on how strong he was/ is.  It looks like we have another super special little man, of course!

The Stats:
Height/Length: 29" (Kai was this tall at 9mths)
Weight: 22lbs 5 ozs (Kai was this big at 1 year)
Head: 50cm (Kai's hit this mark at 1.5yrs)
Destroying the examination paper - he loved it
