I am a blog-posting slacker

The title says it all. I can't believe I haven't posted in 2 weeks!!! We've all been keeping busy. The boys have had swimming lessons 4 mornings a week for the past two weeks. They are doing great and love swimming. We are trying to convince Mitchell to join the swim team (he is a GREAT swimmer), but he's a bit nervous because he doesn't know anyone on the team. My parents are now in St. Louis, so we've hung out with them a few times. They have a great pool at their house, so the boys and Miranda have enjoyed that.
Miranda had her first ear infection. She had a fever up to 103 and was simply miserable. After she finished her antibiotics, she was feeling so much better. Then my ear started hurting, my head felt like it was going to explode, and I had a fever!! Guess what??? Yep, ear infection for me, too. I am now, finally starting to feel better after about 2 1/2 weeks.

Miranda is doing awesome. Sleeping all night...goes to bed at 7pm (if we're not out at various baseball games or other activities!) and sleeps until 7:30am. She takes a bottle 4 times a day (7:30, 11:30, 3:30, 7pm roughly), and is now eating baby food three times a day! So far, there isn't any food that she doesn't like. Thus, she is gaining lots of weight...she now weighs somewhere close to 20 lbs! My arms are getting tired from carrying her!

Miranda is crawling, pulling up to standing, and can go from laying down to sitting all on her own. She thinks it's pretty fun to crawl under the exersaucer, then get stuck there! Matt and I are trying to get the house child-proofed. He has a bunch of door latches that I need to get him to install! She's getting quicker and quicker every day with the crawling, so we need to make our house safer!

Here are some pictures of what we've been up to the past few weeks! Matt's been busy at work...that's why he isn't in any pictures!
Hanging out at my parent's pool has been lots of fun for all of us.
My mom and I took Miranda and the boys to the wading pool at Tower Grove Park. Miranda loved playing with the fountains.On a recent trip to the zoo with some church friends.

Would love to get together when you have time and I have a playgroup if you are interested. When are you back at work? I's working most Thursday and Friday nights. Call me if you get a chance.

Congrats again. You all look so happy!!
