Not a creature was stirring...

The whole family is asleep at far as I can tell, even the cats.  I haven't had time to write in such a long time with the addition of Sammy.  Every time I read my friends blogs I think I should really post to mine but then I look at the clock and think "to heck with that I'm going to bed!"  But now the family, better known by the neighbors as the "Man Farm" is asleep so perhaps I do have time.

Max turns 3 in just a few weeks which will come in handy when I want to holler at him to stop acting like he is a 2 year old  cause now when I do it well it just sounds stupid, but on the other hand its a reminder to me that he is only 2.  We are going with a Mickey Mouse themed party this year since that is his latest interest.  Max is making good progress on the language front.  He is starting to use sentences a little more.  Although I notice he the sentences he does use are ones he has heard from me.  Such as "it's dark in here"  "the dog is out".  I don't know if the speech therapy has been helpful for him or not but he enjoys it and its free.  He is in full parrot mode which mean if you are driving and some one cuts you off and you yell "thanks jerk" he will too.

Sammy just turned 3 months old last week.  He is doing well also.  He has found his hands and loves to look at them.  He can also smile and laugh which is so cool.  Much more fun when you can interact with them.  We do have an apt to have his vision checked because he doesn't seem to focus on any one object, his eyes do a left right left right motion most all the time as if he is scanning the environment.  I am hopeful that this will be something that is correctable or at least not intrusive to his life. 

We had the kids pictures taken last weekend.  I think we got some pretty good pictures.
