Wow...sorry it has been so long!

Sorry it has been so long. So here is a recap since Halloween.

Braxton turned 9 months this month and had his check-up he was 31 inches and 22 lbs and 15 oz. He is a big boy. He has 11 teeth and we are still counting. He is sitting up on here own and he loves it when his brother plays with him. He loves to grab anything that is in front of him. He is still eating baby food but loves to eat what we are eating also. He gets upset if he does not get a bit and he will let you know.

Payton went for a 2 1/2 year check up because we are still worried about his speech development. It has gotten better but not where we think it should be. The doctor is sending us for a hearing screen just to make sure that everything is ok on that front. Both Payton, Jeff and I get frustrated when we don't know what he wants and we hope that we get some answers soon and we are looking to get hims some speech therapy.

Jeff and I are still trucking along. We are both exhausted when we go to bed to keep up with the boys. It is a blessing to have both of them and exciting to see them grow up. It is sad also because Braxton isn't much of a baby anymore and becoming more and more independent. We can't believe that Braxton will turn 1 in less than 3 months and Payton will turn 3.

We are getting ready for the holidays and celebrating that this is Braxton's first Christmas and Thanksgiving.

Well that is all the news from the Vander Logt's. I am so sorry that is has been so long and I will have to put up new pictures.

Payton and Braxton had fun their first halloween. Payton was scared to trick or treat at first but his cousin Jacob helped him and at the end he really enjoyed it. Braxton didn't know what was happening other than his mom putting him in a funny costume. He was a little under the weather because he is cutting his stomach teeth now and they hurt.

Where did it all begin.....

This is a blog about the lives of a non-traditional midwestern family. I am a full time working mother of two beautiful boys and a wife to a stay at home husband. We were married on June 15, 2002 and were blessed with two boys, Payton (4-19-05) and Braxton (2-08-07).
