Shawn's 2 year appointment

We had Shawn's 2 year appointment last week. He is still measuring 1st percentile but where he has a steady growth and climb they aren't too worried about it. If he stops growing or is still small when he is a little older they "might" start him on growth hormones. I think he will just be a late bloomer like his dad. He is perfectly healthy! He is very smart too. ;) He ended up getting 1 shot and cried until the nurse brought him a sucker. He was great after that! I wish I could remember his measurements but I can't sadly enough. :( I know he wasn't quite 23 pounds and he was around 33 1/2 inches long (i think). I guess we'll wait and see what happens with him. As long as he is healthy I'm fine with that. 

We have a mover!

William has now figured out how to roll from back to front and is rolling around my house. He hasn't quite figured out how to steer just yet but he knows he gets some where by rolling. He is also trying to pull his knees up under him already and is trying to push himself with his feet but he doesn't move his arms too so he ends up face planting it into the floor. :( We believe he is working on getting his teeth in as well.  It's amazing how fast they grow and how much they learn in the first year of their life! He has started belly laughing, rather than just squeaking or snorting because he is trying to hold it back. He is such a smiley boy! He smiles at about anyone that will smile at him or talk to him. I can't believe he is already working on his 6 month of life. :(

Here is a video of his belly laugh. This was right after he was really laughing but he still laughs. Sorry it's blurry it's with my phone and I'm trying to take it and play with him at the same time.

Some pics of the boys

    Shawn got stuck in the box his blocks go in.
It was rather funny watching him figure out how to get out.
He did eventually figure it out though.
Shawn found dad's safety glasses. Anything of dads is the coolest thing ever!
 Shawn also really enjoys his hats. The beenie in the right picture, if you believe it, use to be mine.
We went out shooting and William thought it was too loud.
He looks so cute with his cheekies all squashed!
William in his "cool" shirt.
Both of my boys have to cover their head when they sleep.
I'm always checking on him and he rarely has his nose and mouth
covered with the blanket.
I think his eyes look like the Laws. That may just be me though.

July already!!!

I can't believe it's July already! We have had a busy month already! William had his 4 month check up on the first and is doing well. He is ahead in his hand eye coordination and the dr was really impressed at his strength in his back and legs. He weighed 12 pounds 6ounces, he was 24 1/4 inches long, and his head circumference was between 41 and 42 cm. I didn't catch what it was for sure. Then we had the 4th of July and had a small bbq at my parents house on Saturday and then Sunday we did fireworks here at home. Shawn was fascinated for the first dozen then he was falling asleep in my lap while William sat mesmerized by them and would fuss while Shem was getting some more ready. Saturday we went to the Scottish Festival over in Payson and watch the Scottish games, that was pretty fun. The boys got bored after a bit so we decided to walk around and look at the booths a bit. On Sunday we had the Johnson family reunion. It was really fun. I hardly held William at all. People just passed him around. Then this coming Sunday will be Shawn's second birthday! It's hard to believe my little boy is 2 years old already! Where did the time go. I swear he was just a baby!  I can't believe how fast time goes when you have kids. And to think that next month Shem and I will be celebrating our 3rd year together. Crazy!
