The boys turned six months old on Sunday!!!! I'll post some more pics soon. Things have just been very busy getting ready for the Christmas holidays and crazy busy at work. One of my peer managers is going to another department and I believe my manager is going to make an organization change that will have me managing twice as many people. Which will be great to position me to get a promotion to a Sr. Manager at the end of next year.
Yesterday the boys had their first day trying the backup day care at my office. It's really hard to get into the infant room as they are so busy, but we got a call at 8AM that they had room for both the boys!!!! Nicki was out of town on Monday and Tuesday, which is why I had the boys on the waitlist to come in to the office with me. I also have them on the waitlist for December 21, 22, and 23. Then I'm taking the rest of the year off. The boys had such a great day listening to stories and songs and making new friends. They really liked the three ladies that were taking care of them. Liam even gave Miss Carol a big smile when I handed him over to her in the morning. And he's usually so reserved with his emotions.
The boys also started trying sippy cups! I started having Phoebe try a few sips from one with the stopper in it when she was 6 months old and she loved them so much by 7 months she was off bottles. The boys are acting like Phoebe did when she first tried them, curious why it comes out so fast when they suck on it. They both were starting to get good at it at dinner last night.
And Phoebe has a crush on a boy at school. Sniff! She keeps getting so big. He told her he liked her "a little" which she told me meant he really likes her as "boys always don't want to completely admit it." She's wise beyond her years....
I'll post more updates soon.
