Opening their gifts






So the boys turned 1 last Wednesday December 1st, 2010. I can't believe a whole year has gone by. Well it's been a little crazy lately, well more than usual. The boys had their 1st Birthday party, Vic's 34th birthday was a few days later and Lil Vic's soccer is in full swing. We are out on the soccer fields every weekend which is actually really nice for the boys. They have had so many 1st this year and although this isn't their 1st Christmas it feels like it, since they were still in the hospital last Christmas. So we are just enjoying it. Here are some updates on all our boys.




Victor- School President, straight A's so far this year, joined band and is learning to play the sax and has had a solid soccer season. Now although he has had some disappointments in soccer he hasn't let it get him down and has risen and continued to play with such heart. We are very proud of the young man he is growing up to be. Oh yea, he also likes a girl (crying as I type this out, wipe tear).



Isaac- He loves his milk and carbs. No baby food for him, he wants the good stuff. He is my cheese ball and makes funny faces. he also loves to move my furniture around, well anything he can move, like chairs. He is also my big boy and my big baby. He walks, says something that sounds like happy, claps, is starting to wave, and dances by bobbing his head.



Size- 12 to 18 months

Weight- 23.2 lbs

Height- 30 1/8 inches

Head Circumference- 18 inches

teeth- 7 ( 4 on top and 3 on the bottom)






Jeremiah- Now Jeremiah No, as we refer to him as, is non-stop. He is active. We always knew he would be. Although he is active he is actually a really good baby. He keeps himself pretty busy. He is also my charmer. When ever you call his name, Jeremiah No, he turns around and bats his eyes. He walks, claps, blows kisses, and dances by bobbing his head



Size- 12 month to 18 months

Weight- 21.14 lbs

Height- 29 3/4 inches

Head Circumference- 17 1/2 inches

teeth- 8 ( 4 on the bottom and 4 on the top)




Samuel- Samuel is my con artist. He loves to be carried around and plays being the youngest/baby to a tee. He really doesn't care to walk and if I could carry him around all day that would suit him just fine. He is also my shy guy or he at least acts shy in public by turn his face into his shoulder. At home he is my loud one and boy what he lacks in size he makes up for in attitude! He is cruising around the couch and has taken up to 3 steps, so walking is around the corner for him. He says mama, waves bye, sticks his tongue out and makes that pluuuu sound. I forget to mention all 3 have starting throwing their balls. Samuel also likes music and moves his head from side to side and makes monster sounds by growling.



Size- 9 months to 12 months

Weight- 19.06 lbs

Height-29 inches

Head Circumference- 17 1/2 inches

teeth- 4 ( 2 on top and 2 on the bottom)




Well all I can say is this past year is exactly what we expected and nothing like we expected. Meaning at times it is as hard as we thought it would be, yet since it becomes your norm it isn't as hard as you thought it would be. Then at times just as hard and crazy as you thought it would be it is 3 times as wonderful and fulfilling as you could ever imagine. We continue to struggle, soar, cry, laugh, love and be blessed with each passing day!
