Later that night, we noticed that Jake felt hot and he was not feeling good for the rest of the day. He ran a fever through the night. I figured it was because he was still getting his two top teeth. We gave him some tylenol and he felt less hot the next morning. However, Jonah had the same issue the following night. I know fevers are a normal way of the body fighting off something...but they scare mommy! We were supposed to go over to GG's house the next day but with Jonah running a fever over 100, we put it off until the following night. The reason we did 2 christmases was b/c our Aunt Lissa is a police officer and had to work on Christmas.
SO, Saturday, which was our 10 month birthday was spent at GG and Grampa's house. It was great. Aunt Lissa got us a cool new toy. And GG and Grampa got us a wagon!!! We put the boys in it and just drug them around the house a few time and they both giggled. It was super cute.
Both boys are back to normal by now. Jake is still working on getting those two top teeth out. They are slow movers. Other than that, we are looking forward to 2009. Happy New Year!
The monkeys LOVED their rocking dogs...Jonah especially!

This video was taken right after Thanksgiving.
Our Thanksgiving was great! The boys had fun playing in grandma's kitchen, or should I say destroying it! Unfortunately they slept through the main dinner but we discovered they like cranberrys and mashed potatoes. We have MUCH to be thankful for. I still can't believe we have TWO beautiful, healthy baby boys. They are the highlight of my every moment. I can't wait to see what they'll do next. I still can't believe it sometimes. Even tonight my mother said, "Shannon, your CHILDREN are walking! YOUR CHILDREN...how did that happen that you have kids?!" I said, "I know...I have to remind myself sometimes too that this happened and there's two at the same time...and it's the most amazing thing I could have ever happened to me!" I thank God for these babies and pray everyday for their continued health and progress. Even our doctor said they're way ahead of the curve as far as physical accomplishments. He said that even if they weren't twins it would be big but especially as a multiple. My kids are awesome!

We had our first playdate a little over a week ago with our friend Paisley. We had a great time and can't wait to see you again soon Paisley. And we're looking forward to getting together with more friends as soon as we can!

They just started to eat some protein, just chicken and turkey as of right now. They definately liked it! Their favorites are sweet potatoes, bananas, apple sauce, peas, carrots and a few others they've tried. I dont think they are too wild about green beans or spinach but we'll work on that. They definately let me know when something is not good. Jonah looks at me like "WHY would you give this to me" and Jake makes the funniest gagging sound. He's not actually gagging, it's just a noise to protest my choice of veggie.
I do make my own baby foods as well as give them some store bought. BUT, everything is organic...even their juice. That's important to me to try to reduce the amount of chemicals/artificials that go into their mouths right now. I'm sure they'll have plenty of time to load up on unhealthy things when they are adults but I want to start them out on the right foot.

We'll be 8 months old on Monday...hard to believe! We are working on many things and every day presents something new to explore. For example, we're starting to try some new foods that require a little bit of gumming like mango and apple. Jake thought the sound the apple made was HILLARIOUS! (see below...the camera ran out of memory or we would have gone longer) Every time he took a bite he laughed. The boys are SO active. They are pulling up to a stand almost all day long. They love their activity table that Aunt Lissa got us because it's easy to pull up to and it has lots to do. Of course we already know all the songs it plays by heart!
