Two Months

Two months old already. Since Jack's 2 day stint in the hospital the boys have been doing great. At 2 months they were a healthy 11 and 11.7 lbs.
Will (left above) is more finicky but his projectile urping has improved tremendously. Will has a high pitch squeal when he gets really upset. It is hard not to laugh when he busts out the squeal.

Jack (right above, pic below) is a tank, eating a lot and just SOLID (heavy) overall. Jack rolled over at 1 month but hasn't repeated the trick since.
Both boys are smiling more and more and starting to show personality.
Evie continues to be a bundle of energy, joy, and She's hilarious one moment and pitching an end-of-the world fit the next. She definitely keeps us on our toes but that is how we like it.

Every day when I leave for work she asks me why, so I tell her "to get more monies." Then she'll ask "you monies all gone?" When Erin went back to work she pretended to talk to her on the phone and said "Momma, you go to work to buy more monies?"

Like Father like Son

We've had a scary week so far. Over the weekend our top notch eater Jack seemed to lose his appetite. On Monday he struggled to breath and cried in pain every time we tried to feed him. So on Tuesday the doctor sent us to the hospital.
Little Jack was suffering from a nasty respiratory virus (RSV). The virus is common but can be very dangerous to children under 1 (and Jack isn't even 2 months).
Jack has acted congested his whole life and Erin and I suspect he'll have asthma just like me. In the hospital he was given breathing treatments; medicine that I've used may times myself - albuterol, nebulizer...
The little guy perked up after getting fluid via an IV and really seemed content most of the time at the hospital.

He was there overnight and thankfully is now back home. Get better JACK!

Snowstorm 2011

Everyone has a story about the massive snowstorm we had last week. For the most part we had an uneventful week. My 5 minute drive to work took 8 on Wednesday.

I personally enjoyed the creative nicknames for the storm:
  • Snowtorious B.I.G.
  • Blizzard of Oz
  • Snowmageddon
  • Snowzapalooza
  • Kaiser Snowze
  • Mass Snowsteria
  • SNOW-normous
This weekend we had some fun in the snow piles.

Erin built 3 comfortable chairs in our snow bank.
I built a passable tunnel.
