So here are some fun pictures of the boys. Batman and Rykkar are best friends. Here they are enjoying a little game of tug a war with good ol' "Cars Gippy"
Here's the best picture we got of the boys together this weekend. Bentley is practicing sitting, more like leaning on his brother, which I'm sure he will do a lot through out his life. I am so lucky to be blessed with 2 wonderful boys, they are so beautiful.
This weekend we were relaxing on the couch when Bentley decided to suck his thumb for the first time. We grabbed the camera and got a quick snapshot! So sweet.
How could you say NO to a face like this? He is so dang cute. I'm so glad we got him. He now sleeps in our room on the floor in his bed, as opposed to the laundry room where he use to sleep. I'm surprised how fast he learned to potty train outside. He puts his paws up on the back door and gives a little bark, that's when you know. He's almost 6 months old. Everyone should get a Morkie (Yorkie-Maltese) they are such good dogs.
So we went to an appointment yesterday and they measured Rykkar and Bentley. In just 11 weeks Rykkar grew 2 inches and gained 2 pounds. He's turning into a little skinny string bean. He use to be my fat chubby little baby, sad he's growing up. Bentley now weighs 14 pounds and is 28 inches long. It's so crazy to watch your children grow before your eyes. I bet it's even crazier for my mom because she hasn't seen them since February so in pictures they probably look huge.
Yay! Josh got his promotion moving him up to a Private First Class (PFC). I am so proud of him and I love him so much. Josh has put so much effort into the Army. He has grown so much as a person and I know he's learned so much about himself this past year. He wakes up everyday at 5:30 to go to PT and then has the rest of the day doing duties in his battery until 5:30 that night. He has so much endurance and is always going up and beyond. We love you so much Josh and we are all so proud of you. We are all so greateful that you are serving our country and that you are willing to put your life on the line. MUAH!
A little about us... Josh is active duty in the U.S Army and we have been stationed in Vilseck, Germany. We will be here for 3 years and we are so excited to travel around Europe! Rykkar is just over 2 and growing up way too fast. Amanda is very pregnant due with Bentley Coupe the end of February 2009. Rykkar is very excited to be a "Big Brother" and he loves to give Bentley loves and kisses through mommys belly. He also loves to shine a flash light through mommys belly to make Bentley move.
