Proud Mama of 7 month olds!

Unfortunately, I feel like there isn't much to blog about recently!
The boys are doing so amazing!
The 7th month milestone seems to be a great month for us already!
I know you are not supposed to compare kids, and I really try not to, but I must say...Our boys are simply BRILLIANT. 

They are only 7 months, they haven't had hardly any eye sight the first 6 months, they have had non-stop headaches for 6 months, and gone through 2 surgeries each..and Yet I still find they are way ahead of other people's kids ;)  --I have to brag! hehe

My big boys sitting in the cart at Sam's Club! They LOVED it!! They loved seeing all of the colors and people. :) It was the best shopping experience we have ever had with the boys... and their carts hold 2 babies!!
I will say, my boys might be 'advanced' but they are the size- weight and height- of a 12 month old!
These little boys are SO hilarious too.

They just randomly start cracking up laughing either on their own or with each other. It's so awesome to sit here and watch them play with each other.

I can't imagine having 1 baby and them not having someone to laugh with at this age..
it is just so amazing.
These are "Healthy" Milestones that should be reached by 7 months.

This 3-day weekend was AMAZING!
It has been wonderful having Brad home everyday!  I have gotten a few naps in and taken a few trips out of the house alone :D
And, Brad is DONE with our Bathroom remodel!!!!
Now that he is finished, I get to start buying my part...
Towel bars, art work, and a corner chair and wall mount to hold towels !!
It is so beautiful! I must say I have great ideas and combined with Brad's hard work and do-it-yourself attitude, we make a great team!
I will post pictures soon!
Have a wonderful 4 day work week!
