a quick look back

Looking back at pictures from the beginning of 2009, I am in awe of how much my boys have grown and changed.

Silas, he has really grown in height and maturity. During the year he has learned how to use the potty, learned how to be a great big brother, and learned how to work his charm! Silas has played and played with his farm animals. He has spent hours doing "homework" and focusing on the detail of each mark he makes. You could usually find him sporting his chuck taylor's and john deere cap. He is my growing boy! The knowledge and maturity he already possesses at three is crazy!!

Sweet baby Joe Joe....My baby Joe is really no longer a baby! Little fella will be two in two days! This year has been filled with amazing changes and transformations! He always gives in to his brothers manipulations, yet at the same time emulates everything that Silas does. He is always two steps behind in any adventure brought his way. Joe has an easy way of always getting his feelings hurt very easily, as well as being my little snuggle buddy. If I am every just having some "down time", I can always count on my baby Joe to join right in. He gave up the bottle at the beginning of '09, but you can better believe he is hanging on that pa-pa...(pacifier). He is not letting that thing go, and I don't mind one bit. Joe has become super fond of his blue blanket, which he calls "night-night" and his little bear named Snuggie.

2009 has brought several changes to our lives....and I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what 2010 has for us..........
