Update # 1

I figured that I would break this update into two different posts so there wasn't a novel to read all at once!
Things are going pretty well with the boys. Elliot had his check up and shots last week and did very well. He is up to 12lbs 6oz already! He can wear Noah's diapers now! He is doing great at night and will go for a 7 hour stretch before he wants to eat again. It feels great to be getting more sleep and I surely didn't anticipate it happening so soon! He is super smiley and making all sorts of happy baby sounds.
Zane is good as usual and keeping very busy. He only has a month left of school, which does not seem possible. He will have the next two months free to enjoy his summer before football starts. Right now he is getting ready for the school triathlon in two weeks. He has to ride his bike for 2miles, run for 1/4 of a mile and swim for 1/4 of a mile. He is really excited about it! He is still active in cub scouts and lots of activities for school. There is always someone at the door after school and on weekends wanting him to come out and play and the phone is always ringing! There are no boys in the neighborhood so its just girls to play with. Zane doesn't seem to mind at all...:)
We are loving the weather!! We are outside as much as we can be. Noah loves being out in the dirt playing in his water table. He and Zane found a bag of water balloons left over from last summer that have kept them both very entertained!

It's so amazing to see the boys grow, change, and become thier own little men!!

I am so proud of Zane being in a triathalon - and Baby Elliot sleeping through the night and putting on so much weight!! I know that he's just loving all the attention from his two big brothers!!

Mom and dad went on and on about what a doll Noah was when they saw him last week :)

We just can't wait to see you guys this summer and meet the Fabulous Baker Boys ;)

We love you all :)

Kelly and the Handsome Handley Boys ;)
