It's been awhile since I updated.  Sometimes I think about giving up on this silly blog due to lack of time, but I love going back and reading past posts, so for now, I will keep the blog alive.  It's a good way to document our lives.

The past couple of months have been crazy!  Having 2 kids has been wonderful, and a little challenging.  We have had a few growing pains since Vivi joined our family, but over all it hasn't been that big of an adjustment.  Going from no kids to 1 kid was a lot harder for me than going from 1 to 2 kids.  I am so much more relaxed and confident this time around.  Vivian is a dream baby.  She has slept 5-6 hour stretches at night since the day we brought her home from the hospital.  When she's awake, she is almost always calm and content.  She is the complete opposite of Max when he was a newborn.  Max cried A LOT and hardly ever slept day or night.  This time has been a breeze!

Max is cuter and sweeter than ever. He's extremely active and runs around all day long. He loves his cars and has to be holding one in each hand at all times.  He is still very affectionate and gives hugs and kisses freely all day long.  He is a typical 2 year old and throws temper tantrums and says "no" a lot, but over all, he's a very good little boy.  We always tell ourselves that we need to document some of the  cute things Max says on a regular basis. I'm sure that most kids have a few sayings that their parents love, but we have a handful that really crack us up. He doesn't really know the difference between "big" and "heavy," so whenever things are "big" he calls them "hebby." The moon is "hebby," the trucks are "hebby." He loves sleeping. How many kids actually ask to go to bed or take a nap?! He always asks us to "get paci and blank" (his pacifier and blanket) so he can go to bed. He learned to spell his name this week, we were so proud of him. He has little bath letters that he put together to spell "Max."

We love both our angel babies!  Life is great and we have never been happier.  Merry Christmas!
