A Year Later

Ok, so it is not quite their birthday, but it is getting close...two weeks from today the boys will be one year old!  More pictures at that point, but I wanted to do a quickie update.

All is well.

We have managed to survive the HOT summer in Dallas.  We have had over 60 days of 100 degree (38 C) temperatures.  It has been the second hottest summer on record for Dallas...lucky us that we moved here, huh?!?!?!  We took a trip to LA to get out of the heat, show off the boys and see our dear friend Rita awarded her doctoral degree.  Of course, the weather there was amazing.  The boys screamed the entire flight - both ways!  We have become those people that I stare at on flights...the ones with out of control kids.  Yikes!  Even so, being back in LA and seeing everyone - and yes, the cool breezes, made the trip totally worth it!

Both boys have quite a few teeth.
They stand and squat without help, but no steps just yet.
Meal time is fun for all of us...we end up with more food on their face, our clothes, the walls, floor, etc than we do in their mouths.  Sometimes they cry in the high chair and sometimes they laugh as in this quickie video...Steve keeps dropping the spoon and that is just cracking Jag up!

Here are a few shots from our trip to LA...
