Just a few things to mention today. Izabel and Tanner are both doing really well. A little over a week ago they both had really high fevers for no apparent reason. I took them both the pediatrician but nothing was wrong so we just gave them tylenol and motrin and waited. They are both feeling much better now.

Tanner is a little crankier than normal but he has some new teeth coming in so that is probably why. We have started giving him more and more table foods. He has eaten bananas, cheese, noodles, carrots and pears. He's not a fan of doing it himself though! He is still happy most of the time (except for when the teeth are bothering him) but he is starting to get more annoyed with Izabel. He waves and gives kisses and says Mama all the time. He even waves and kisses himself in the mirror and it's so cute.

Izabel is talking more and more but she is still having trouble getting some words out and making some sounds. We're working on getting an appointment with the speech therapist at CHKD for an evaluation. We've also been looking at preschools for the fall so hopefully those two things will help a lot! Our church just started a 3 and 4 year old program so we're hoping they will take her. She loves movies now and wants to watch Nemo everyday! She is also playing more in her room now that Tanner can come in and keep her company. It's nice to see them starting to play together.

Over the weekend we tried to relax. Noah and I got to go see The Book of Eli Friday night. I thought it was pretty good. Saturday morning Noah had a class and then when he got home I went to a baby shower for one of the moms in the playgroup. It was a lot of fun and it was nice to get to chat with everyone without having to chase the kids around! Sunday we went to church and then Amy and Ray came over for dinner and to play games. We had a really nice time. This week is exam week at school so my schedule is a little more relaxed. The problem for me is that DECA projects are due next week so they need to be in the mail by Friday. DECA is the student organization I run and the projects are 10-30 page written manuals for state competition. This year we are sending 6 of them so that is a lot of editing and re-editing for me! It'll be worth it to see my students succeed!

I don't have any pictures because I left my camera at the baby shower but I should get it back tonight at our play date. I'll post another update in the next couple of days so you can see how we celebrated National Chocolate Cake Day! Have a great rest of the week :)
