My kids are so much fun right now! They enjoy each other and will play for awhile everyday. Actually, it is Lola playing and Deacon follows her around, but they are both having a great time.
When I take a shower, I put Deacon in his pack'n play, which is in our bedroom. Lola stays in the room with him also. Today when I came out of the bathroom, she announced that she was "making a float for the baby parade." She took every blanket and pillow she could find in the house and put them in and on the pack'n play.

I am not an animal person, really. I don't really care for little dogs, and I HATE loud, annoying dogs that bark all the time and jump on you. I like big dogs and cats. Hamsters, turtles, and other "housepets" creep me out. Even looking at Lola's goldfish while I am cooking grosses me out.
However, one of my new favorite websites is http://www.icanhascheezburger.com/ - it is pictures of (mostly) cats with captions on them. For some reason, I can almost pee my pants from laughing so hard when I read it. Anyways, here is one that was on there today. So funny. Check it out.

Here are some pics of Lola at the same age. Oh yeah, Happy late Valentine's Day! Remember when I only had one kid and I had time to pose her and take her picture just for holidays? Not so much anymore. Sorry.

Drawing in the "snow."
Deacon really wished he could go too. But that would mean I would have to go, and I have a vivid memory of cracking my tailbone on the ice one Thanksgiving as a kid. No thanks!

This little man was 10 months old yesterday. He started clapping his hands the other day, and I have tried SO hard to get video of it, but it hasn't happened. As soon as he sees the camera he comes barreling towards me to get it, which is what he was doing in this picture. Usually he stands up when he claps. He can stand up on his own without support and stand there for a while! He takes little steps if you hold onto his hands. He also FINALLY said Mama. Its more like "Mamamamamamamama" when he wants to be fed. He is babbling a lot more sounds too. He still says "Lala" all day long though.
He is starting to show preference for things he wants and does not want. Sometimes it takes 15 minutes to dress him, SERiously. He hates to get dressed. He also would prefer to play with a cell phone, remote control, or camera above any of his toys. And he does not want the old cell phones that we have taken the batteries out of and given to he and Lola, he wants our actual phones that we use now. He got his own remote from Santa, but still prefers the real remote control. He holds it up and points it at the TV. If you do not give him what he wants, be ready for some screaming, fussing, and wrestling. He is very strong.
A few weeks ago he randomly started sleeping well at night, like 8 or 9 hours. I was going to mention it, but didn't want to jinx it, so I didn't. He has quit, and he is still waking up once, sometimes twice a night for a bottle. He refuses to nurse, so now I am forced to get up at 4, 5, 05 6 am sometimes and pump him a bottle. (I am not a morning person.)
He is overall very happy and sweet. He loves to go outside with Lola, so we are looking forward to Spring so we can go to the park!
He has 8 teeth, with another coming in, and has the sweetest smile. He loves to "pat" the ones he loves, usually in the face, so if you don't know he is trying to love you it seems as though he is smacking you. He is very sweet and definately starting to show more "boy" characteristics. I am sad that his "baby" days are coming to an end, but I know he will be such fun as a toddler.
