2009 - Mommy's resolution...

I will be a better blogger.
I will be a better blogger.
I will be a better blogger.
I will be a better...(you get the idea)

After all my big talk and promises, another month (almost) slides by.

So, I will forgive myself, start fresh in 2009 and give you the month 3 update, beginning with our 2 month appointment.

Brewer, true to form, HOWLED at the shots, while Bonham took it well, barely letting out a single whimper.

I was absolutely right on about weight - Brewer weighed in at 10lb 13oz, while Bonham was 10lb even. Brew was 1/2 inch longer than Bon, so they are staying pretty close in size. Brew was in the 25th percentile for everything while Bon was in the 15th for everything but his head, which measured in the 10th percentile.

After that was Christmas which was wonderful, except that I got a horrid stomach virus and spent Christmas night in urgent care. Luckily, I felt well enough to spend Christmas morning with the boys and we had a wonderful time and got some cute pictures! The Christmas season was spent with family from near and far - most especially with little miss Lili-pie, the boys' cousin - who was also celebrating her first Christmas.

Fast forward on to January - the month of giant strollers (YAY!)....we got a BOB jogger and a couple of double Maclarens...and sadly, the month of our first colds, and, as a result, ear infections...Brewer has 2 and Bon has just a half of one...Dr. Suell took great care of us and the boys have been real little troopers, even sleeping through the night despite being so miserable with stuffy noses.

(I bet you can guess by now which one takes his medicine and his nose-cleanings like a champ and which one gives his mama major DRAMA when it is time for these activities...when Brewer even sees the saline bottle now he screams bloody murder!)

February will be the month of returning back to work...I am anxious, but hopeful that all will go well. We started a trial run of part-time daycare this month and the boys seem to really enjoy hanging out with Miss Mary and Miss Sophia, so at least that won't have me crying on day one...

In the meantime, Jon and I want to try to do some fun things with the boys, so tomorrow we are headed to the Houston Zoo - pictures to follow soon - no, really, I PROMISE this time...see the beginning of this post...this is my resolution for the year!

I'm so envious that you are able to use your BOB already. One of the downsides of living in the great white north, I guess. :) At least the summers ROCK.

Well done on the blog, mama.
