The boys are 17 months old today!

Since the majority of our friends and family live hundreds of miles away, I have decided I could do a better job keeping in touch with everyone by joining the blogging world. Many of you know that I am pretty computer illiterate, so this is a huge undertaking! I hope this will keep us better connected!

Our precious babies are growing up so quickly. Bryce and Drew are 17 months old today! They bring so much joy and laughter to our lives.

Bryce loves music and dancing, peek a boo, hide and seek, going on walks, playing in his swimming pool and sprinkler and riding his tricycle around the house. He also loves to watch me cook! Bryce loves to be around people and lights up a room with his big, brown eyes, smile and giggles. I laugh so hard at him sometimes, my face hurts!

Drew also loves music and dancing (they have recently started watching "The Wiggles") doing ANYTHING outside, cars, dogs and chasing his brother around the house on his tricycle. He also loves to ride on the lawn mower with his Daddy. When I sweep the floor he is usually right beside me sweeping up with another broom...what a good helper! Drew has a very tender, sweet spirit and shares well his brother.

We pray every day that our boys will love the Lord and each other. We want them to be the best of friends. I think they are off to a pretty good start!
My babies also love THEIR babies! I have been amazed that Bryce and Drew never took a pacifier, they never sucked on their thumbs and they never had a blanket or a special toy or animal...that was until a few months ago! Around the time that we started weaning from the bottle, both boys began loving one of their stuffed animals. Bryce only sleeps with his (thankfully...you'll see why!) but Drew likes to have his nearby him ALL DAY! Here's Drew with his best friend...besides Bryce!
