Growing, Climbing and PLAYING!

**Written August 2013**
At one month old Bowan was a learning experience for our Blake family.  It took this month for all of us to get on to a schedule that fit a newborn.  We had to change our lifestyle and focus, but even though newborns require a lot of attention, Bo seemed to fit ever so perfectly in our routine. 
Max with his preschool, swim, soccer and nature classes, is full of activity.  People say that the terrible twos are awful.  “They” lie.  Three’s have nothing on the twos.  But despite his antics of defiance and button pushin’, he is a great kid.  He is growing faster than fast and is such a social butterfly.  In becoming a big brother, he is more independent and a little more curious about the world.  Such a quick learner and patient teacher. 

At two months, after the newness has settled and in and everyone has settled down, real life kicks in.  Mommy returns to work, daddy tackles beer dinners once again and Max is immersed in his social life.  Bowan is constantly growing and changing.  He is almost 14lbs and 22 inches.  His three shots were not watched by brother and mommy because it made us too sad to see him upset.  Daddy was the brave one. 

How quickly the three months flew by.  Summer is almost over and the real preschool session starts.  Max is constantly jumping off beds, running and yelling, chanting pirate tunes or screaming Tarzan calls.  Or he is fighting bears……We have already bought is Spiderman Halloween costume and restocked his undie drawer full of Super hero themed gear. He is all boy.
Baby B is holding his head up strong, drooling, cooing, giggling and smiling.  He is such a gentle, soft little man. He isn’t sleeping as much during the day but when he is awake, he is content.  I think he is in complete awe of his brother and loves to just sit and watch him. 

Daddy and I, after several months, had our first date day.  While the kiddos slept, we ate and drank freely.  It was nice to come home , just in time for dinner and bedtime.  These boys, as they grow each day, are our shining stars!
