Story Time

The other day I put AJ on his little ocean mat while I was getting things ready for bed. Tommy of course, had to join him and pulled out some of his books to read to him. It was very cute watching big brother reading to little AJ.

You are the most wonderful father and husband, I couldn't ask for more. I love watching you play with the boys and I can't wait to see what the future holds for us. You are the love of my life and best friend. I hope you have the most wonderful birthday. Finally, we are both 30!! I love you so much.

Pizza Making

We were able to go behind the scenes at a local pizza restaurant and make our very own pizzas with the MOMS Club. Tommy had a blast, and his pizza didn't turn out half bad either! AJ did great too. I put him in the baby bjorn and he enjoyed watching the whole process. I really think he wanted to eat some too!!

Exhausted!!

I was in the kitchen the other day getting dinner ready and AJ was in his jump-a-roo. I can always tell when he is active in it because it plays music when you move around. All of sudden it got quiet. I went to check on him and he had fallen asleep right in the jumper! I guess all the exercise just exhausted him!! I couldn't resist, I had to take some pictures!

Super Hero Birthday Party!

We attended our good friend, Casey's second birthday party. The theme of the party was superheroes, so Tommy dressed up as Buzz Lightyear, (naturally), AJ wore a Superman shirt, and even Chris joined in on all the fun and put on his Superman shirt. The kids had a great time, it was very cute to see many of them dressed up as superheroes! The Buzz costume was very popular with many of the kids. Here are a few pictures from the party.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Today we celebrated St. Patrick's Day by attending an Irish/green themed party! The kids had a blast! We ate green food, drank green milk, and the best part, we were able to play outside and search for gold! The weather is beautiful today and the kids really enjoyed being outside and running off some of that energy. AJ had a wonderful time, he slept in the baby bjorn the whole time! Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone!!

Jump-A-Roo Time!

AJ is big enough to fit in the jump-a-roo! He just started using this week and loves it! Everyday he gets more used to it and figures out what to do. Here's a short video of him jumping away!

On the Mend!

It appears that everyone is doing better...finally!! We have been able to get out the house and see our friends, which has been wonderful! Tommy's cough is gone and AJ's is minimal. However, he is still not sleeping the best at night, only about 2 hour stretches. It's tough, but hopefully that will end soon when the cough is completely gone! Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of pictures or videos from the past 2 weeks. All you would see is a lot of snot and vomit and hear a lot of coughing!! So I thought I would spare the audience! However, I did capture one quick video of the boys towards the end of last week. AJ had gotten his voice back and loves talking to Tommy. He is also very into grabbing things and pushing things away right now, as you will see in the video. He is almost rolling over now, he tries so hard, but it's tough for him to get his lower half over! It's quite cute (and funny) to watch. When he reaches that milestone we will post it too, look for that soon!

RSV

Sickness has entered the Cullen household. We are going on 2 weeks of sick kids. Tommy was hit with this horrible virus last week, then I knew it was only a matter of time before AJ would contract it. Both of them have had a terrible cough and congestion. The only problem is, RSV affects children under the age of one much worse. Their little bodies just are not equipped to fight off this virus. AJ ended up in the ER twice with breathing treatments. Luckily, we never had to check in to the hospital. We are continuing the treatments at home, as this cough and wheezing can last for up to two weeks. We're not getting much sleep around here, so I apologize for the lack of posts over the next couple of days. Luckily, I have not gotten sick, so even though I'm tired I'm able to manage the kids during the day. Chris and I tag team at night. We'll be glad when this is all over and can get back to much happier posts! AJ has been a trooper through it all though. He smiles at every nurse and even after coughing and vomiting, he still manages to smile. Here's a picture of our little guy. Bath time is his favorite time of day!
