It's Been Forever

I thought I'd update the blog for those of you who are still checking, and maybe to surprise those of you who had given up hope that I would post again! Adam and Eleanor are doing well overall. Both of them are walking, although Eelanor is much more steady and can get herself to standing in the middle of a room, whereas Adam still needs to pull up on something. Good news on the eating front: Adam is much happier eating now and hasn't thrown up in ages. In fact, the pictures I've included show both kids eating goldfish crackers. Eleanor's favorite food is ice cream. She makes a hilarious face as we feed it to her...her eyes close and it's like she's seeing a little bit of heaven. Adam loves cookies--in fact the first "real food" he ate was part of an Oreo. He even will take the cookie apart and eat the center first before chowing down on the rest of it. Eleanor's "stinker" personality has continued to flourish. She climbs on everything possible and is often found behind a chair in the family room ripping up some paper she found. She climbs on tables and sits right in the center of them. Not that she likes attention or anything. Adam is much easier to please. Recently, he wants to be picked up every time one of us passes by him. When his little arms go up and I pick him up over the gate he actually giggles, laughs, and shrieks with joy. What a mommy's boy :) He loves to climb the stairs and wander around the main floor, often ending up at the piano to bang out a few "chords". Neither of the kids are talking yet. Eleanor does make a lot of sounds and talks to her stuffed animals in some language she and the bears apparently understand. Adam makes several sounds, but hasn't really gotten the whole language idea yet. He will be going in soon to have his hearing tested, just to make sure that isn't the issue. Right now, Eleanor weighs just over 25 pounds and Adam is a couple ounces away from 23 pounds. I will try to update a little more regularly in the future! (I have to figure out how to download photos off our camera on our new computer, so as soon as Jim comes home, I'll post the new photos)
