other happenings in the past few months....

Josiah has a best friend. And his name is Elliot.

Elliot and Josiah playing in the back of Elliot's Daddy's truck...

Elliot is 5 1/2 months older than Josiah. They became best friends this past fall. They started hanging out when I went back to work. Elliot and his Mommy, Lindsey, came to keep Josiah. And, their friendship was born. Elliot got a new little brother just one day before Josiah got his new little brother. And, their friendship
became even stronger. Now they talk about the woes and triumphs and joys of being the big brother - and boy, do they have a lot to talk about!

Josiah and Elliot at Elliot's 2nd birthday party - riding horses and catching up on the latest big brother news.

Andrew began propping himself up, getting ready to be a big boy and sit up!

Daniel celebrated birthday #33 with friends at Istanbul Grill in Arlington.

Josiah has a couple of lady friends.

I went back to work at the end of March and a friend of mine kept
the boys for us. She and her daughter came over 2 mornings a week to play with
the boys. Josiah and Naomi fell in love!
Grace is another one of Josiah's friends. We tried to get together with Grace and her mommy about once a month. This picture is at Kindermusik. Grace invited Josiah to be her guest at Kindermusik one morning - he had a blast!

Other fun around our house.
Watching Praise Baby with all of his stuffed animals, the babies hanging out with each other learning how to be brothers, taking Josiah on a date with us by himself to Putt-Putt, playing dress-up with cowboy gear, having a first lick of an ice cream cone, sliding down a BIG slide at our church's carnival (so proud of him!)

the boys.

Well, it's almost June and Andrew is almost 6 months old. I last posted over 2 1/2 months ago. You probably guessed what happened to me... yes! Life has gotten busier with 2 boys and well, lots of things have taken priority over blogging. Though, I do miss it.

Since I haven't blogged in so long and I just got overwhelmed looking at all the pictures I've taken since my last post, I decided I'd just post a series of pics of the boys. Josiah has wanted to hold Andrew from day 1. And now, over 170 days into Andrew's life, Josiah is still wanting to hold him. And, he is sometimes trying to pick him up - THIS is scary! He also tries to sit on Andrew, hug him, pull him out of my lap, kiss him, tickle him, "zerbert" his belly.... he's very interactive with his little brother!
