Finally growing!

If you've been reading along with our blog then you know that we've been having quite a time getting Aren to put weight on.  We think we've finally figured out the right combination.  Vitamin D drops and an Iron supplement.  He gained 1 pound 3 ounces in 3 weeks!  Then he slowed down and gained 2 ounces in 2 weeks.  But he has gone full speed ahead again and now weighs in at 13lb 15.5oz.  We couldn't be more thrilled! 

We've been to the doctor more than I care to admit these last few weeks (which is why I've been able to keep a close eye on Aren's weight progress).  As mentioned previously, we've been a little sick around here.  A virus, the flu (that hit the whole family), an ear infection for Aren, strep throat for Ajay, and now Aren has some virus again.  He's been hitting a fever of 103.7 the last couple of days.  We're hoping once he gets well he can stay healthy for awhile.  At least he is busy building his immune system, right?

Some pictures to share with you (again, pics w/ hair, because I've been a slacker about keeping up with the blog lately).
Alex working on some math and writing skills

Ajay, also, working on math skills.  It was peacful in our house during this time.  Ah, sweet concentration.

Aren figured he needed to climb over Brother.

Aren has been busy pulling up lately.  In fact, while we were at my parents, he ended up in bed with me because he couldn't sleep.  Turns out he was busy working on his pulling-up skill, because he kept pulling up on me despite being half asleep!

Alex was a great helper as we made a double batch of Banan-Oat Muffins.

Here is the reference shot - taken with his Monster from Binu Uncle.  He's finally filling out some of his onesies.  That is a 3 month onesie. 

Trying to figure out that walking thing.
And for a little extra view pleasure - Aren learning he can "dance" - and Alex showing off his exuberant personality.
