Life in the Kid Lane

Hard to believe we have been in Tenerife for 5 weeks now. It doesn't seem that long ago we were packing up our apartment and still hanging out in Dallas. The boys are 10 months and 6 days old already and always entertaining.

Alex finally started crawling with his tummy off the floor earlier this week, he can now stand up and get back down without falling, he can sit up all by himself, and he is sprouting a couple of top teeth. He recently discovered his bellybutton and loves to lick the patio door and anything else he can get his mouth on.

Connor continues to add bumps and bruises to his collection and they always seem to be on his face. He is walking around everywhere and is getting faster and faster by the day. He even knows how to make sharp turns and walk over objects without falling.

We take them to to pool as often as we can. Not only because it's fun, but also because it helps all of us stay sane now that their 3rd nap is gone. Bubbles are a big hit with the boys as I imagine they are with most children. We also started brushing their teeth yesterday with a "real" toothbrush and baby toothpaste. They seemed to like it!! Let's hope it stays that way.

Tomorrow is Nuria's, Jaime's sister, 40th birthday so there will be a party here this afternoon. Otherwise, not too much else going on. We are going to try to start taking one day a week and heading out to be tourists. Maybe we will start this Wednesday... and see how the boys manage.
