Here are the boys at playgroup with their friends Everett and Andrew (cutie-pie Perry was there, but I think she is having a snack during this picture). The boys have been having a great time at their playgroups hanging out with other kids and stealing toys.
The boys have been adding to their mobility skills a ton this month. Here they are practicing their commando crawl during our first annual Cracker Race. Eli won. (Oops, I have been corrected. That is indeed Sam in the lead. I don't even know my own children...!)
The month began with some special packages arriving in the mail. Then Nana and Mo arrived to celebrate the special day. I made an almost sugar-free applesauce cake, which was a hit with the boys (and Mo) if not exactly for the rest of us...
We got some really wonderful presents from everyone. Grandmama sent us a big Radio Flyer wagon (which we call The Hummer). Nana and Mo sent us a small Radio Flyer walker wagon (which we call The Mini Cooper). Aunt Heather and Uncle Paul sent us a great Leap Frog Learning Table, which has been playing non-stop since it arrived. These boys are set for the next five years! Thank you all so much for the wonderful birthday presents!
