This is the most recent picture of my boys.  I love it! Both of their smiles are so contagious.  Derek, you are such an amazing man.  You work so hard for our family to make it possible for me to be a stay at home mom.  I love you so much more than you will ever know! Thomas, you are such a wonderful son.  I love every minute I get to spend with you.  It is a pleasure to stay home with you every day. Thank you to both of my boys for making my life so wonderful!!

Thomas Talking

Thomas likes to talk. I snagged this video the other day while he was in his bouncy seat talking to the animal toy. :-) He kept this talking going for quite a while. He is so cute!!

May 17, 2012 - 5 Months Old

Thomas is 5 months old today!!! He is growing so big so fast.  It is amazing all the changes recently.

Sleeping/Eating: Thomas sleeps on average about 9-10 hrs each night.  I am okay with that.  It makes for early mornings because he has started needing to go to bed around 8-8:30pm so them he decides to wake up around 5-5:30am.  Thankfully he will usually go right back to sleep for about another 3 hrs. He sleeps on his belly, last month he started flipping in the middle of the night.  Now as soon as I lay him down he goes straight to his belly.  He has been eating every 3 hours but I have been recently trying to get him to go a little longer more like 3.5-4hours.  It depends on the day.  :) No solids yet.  At 4 months he was 92% in weight so I think he doesn't need anything more yet.  We will probably start that at 6 months.

Clothing: Little T is wearing anywhere from 6-12 month clothes! He definitely fills out 6 month clothes and 12 months can be a little big but still fit.  My goodness! He is such a big boy.

Talking and Smiling: He talks all the time.  He still smiles at everyone but is becoming a little more apprehensive with people he doesn't know.

New Things: Thomas has loved his new pool that we got.  He has really started grabbing at the things he like/wants.  He has even started reaching for people when he wants to go to them.  Crawling - He is starting to stick his bum up in the air but has not figured out how to get his belly off the ground.  Precious! Sitting - He sitting a little more and is becoming quite steady.  I think he would be better at it but his curiosity gets the best of him and he tries to get to things and loses his balance. He is so sweet! I love everyday and I love that I can spend every day all day with my little boy!

Thomas In His Kiddie Pool!

We went to walmart last week and bought a little pool for Thomas to play in this summer.  The day we bought it was really warm so we filled it and wanted to see how he reacted.  He usually like bath times so we thought he would like this too! It was cold so I was a little apprehensive that it might ruin bath time if he hates it but thought it was well worth the try! He loved it!!!! It was so cute.  Here is a little video we snapped while he was enjoying the water.  PS. He is in the phase of grabbing things he likes so he first tried to grab the water. hilarious! Enjoy!

Thomas Meeting Auntie Amber

Amber was my college roommate for 3 of the 4 years we were in college.  She also came and lived with me for the summer before Derek and I got married.  Amber and I have stayed close all these years and now she is in Italy teaching school.  Well, she had to come back to the states for a really quick trip (like 5 days) and she was able to meet Thomas!! There are only 2 girls in my life that are not family but are close enough to me they get "Auntie" status with my children.  One of those is Amber!! Cant wait to see her again in just a few weeks!

We love you Auntie Amber! So glad to get to see you!!!
