Wade has been scooting around quite a bit. He will also get up on his hands and knees and rock, but doesn't really move forward yet. He also has learned how to do push ups. Auntie Cammy, you would be proud. Here is a video of a portion of his morning workout.
The boys in the bath tub.
There is also a video of him eating his carrot wheels.

Now that we are in the new house, the boys share a bedroom. It has taken about a week for them to get used to it, but last night they both went down without any crying at all! Tristan is sleeping in a big boy bed, and Wade is in the crib. As you can see, they also share the "boat" while taking a bath!

Sorry updates have been few and far between lately. We had moving, canning season, and the stomach bug all coincide.
I wanted to share a few things that the boys have been doing lately. Wade loves to inch around in his walker, and spin around in his excersaucer. I have been feeding him solids for about a month, and I'm just about done feeding him solids. Why you ask? He only wants to feed himself!! He loves fruit puffs, chunks of banana, pieces of bread, teething biscuits, anything that he can pick up and put in his mouth himself! If I do manage to get some rice cereal in him, I have to give him his own spoon so he can feed himself while I try to stuff food into his mouth, too. He loves to eat though, and everytime I think that he'll never eat all this, he does and wants more!!!
Tristan has been much better about throwing fits. He is working on saying "Mommy, help." instead of fussing about something. He has an umbilical hernia that he's had since birth, and it causes an "outie" belly button. Lately, he is very interested in going potty like Daddy. It is quite hilarious, though, because he leans over the toilet with his big round belly, and directs his belly button into the toilet. :)

This is a picture of our "new" boat. It is a 1976 Bayliner. We bought it from some of the friends right before we left for Lk Roos. It has a closed bow, with a cabin underneath. Eric slept in the cabin while we were camping and said that it was very comfortable. The seats also make into 2 more beds, so it can sleep four comfortably. It is obviously an old boat, and somewhat tattered, but it seems to be great for us. I like the deep sides, especially with little ones. Jason and I both waterskiied behind it, and the boat did a great job of pulling us.

All in all, a very relaxing weekend!
