January is almost over! Hooray!

Not that I love how quickly time passes, but I really hate winter, so I am really happy January is coming to an end. The boys are already nearly five months old! They are complete balls of energy now. We've had a busy month. They are both regularly eating solids now (pears, bananas, apples, and sweet potatoes), but of course are still nursing as well. Joel ate an entire banana the other day-- what a piggie! They continue to grow like crazy. They love to play all the time now. We went to Gymboree (a playtime class) yesterday, had lots of fun and met another baby their age. Both boys have started "talking" a lot recently, and they were their normal loud selves during the class. The other little boy was completely infatuated with Joel and Evan-- he couldn't look away! The three of them sat their smiling at each other nonstop after class. Hopefully we'll be seeing him again soon. Their first friend their age! We are going to start attending storytime at the library, and we might be joining a park district program soon as well. I am excited to get them out of the house to start socializing, and, to be quite honest, I need a change in scenery myself.
Daddy went to Spain last weekend, so the boys and I went to stay with my family while he was away. They got lots of time with Nonnie and Poppy and Aunt Jessi. Even Mark (Jessi's boyfriend) and Katie (Alex's girlfriend) came over and helped out. It was nice for the family to get to spend the time with the boys, and it was great to have the extra help... feels like my brain got a bit of a much-needed break!
Here are some pictures taken over the past few days:

Joel and Evan (look at that happy baby!)
Mommy makes Joel and Evan laugh!

Looking more alike every day

Beautiful baby faces (Evan on left, Joel on right)


He can't really sit up on his own yet, but Evan was able to balance long enough for a photo!
Joel, intently watching tv.

Taking a tv break so Mommy can get stuff done (No, I don't just mean taking pictures!)


Daddy is trying to convince me that they look alike... opinions?
