I realized the other day that I don't think I've ever shared with you all that JJ is a thumb sucker. Have I? It really is the sweetest thing...
this post, you can see JJ sucking his thumb in utero at our 20 week ultrasound. He was sucking it the whole time and Joshua and I kept commenting on whether or not we thought he'd be a thumb sucker when he came out. He did. :)

On Friday, we attended an event put on by the Town of Herndon's Public Works Department called, "Big Truck Days". They had all the city's trucks (diggers, loaders, bulldozers, police cars, etc) on display for the kids to climb in and touch the buttons and knobs and wheels. What an idea! It was packed! I'm so glad Josh ended up taking the day off work and going with us, because there's no way we could have enjoyed ourselves if it was just me.

Cheeksie had his four month check up a couple weeks ago and everything went over perfectly smoothly! He weighed 17lb 8oz and was 26" tall. That's just shy of 4 lbs and 2 inches growth in 2 months! He's growing even faster than Audrey did! He's now in 9-12 month clothes and I expect him to slow down a bit from here out.
And finally, I got a new computer! It's been about a month since my HP died and I've been stalling on buying a new one because I wanted a deal, but I wanted something good...and I was also considering switching over to Apple and getting the MacBook Air (LOVE). Ultimately I decided not to go with Apple because of both the price and the learning curve of a new product and new operating system, etc. I found a great deal on a top of the line Dell with MS Office 2010 and I went yesterday and snatched it up. Then I got home and realized it was working on Windows 8. Ugh. So now I DO have to learn a totally new operating system because this is nothing like what I am used to...and everyone in the office talks about how much they hate it. I'm going to try my hardest to ignore all the negative comments and try to learn it and form my own opinion. Hopefully I will like it! I still need to get my hands on MS Publisher and Adobe Professional for work, but that's an expense that will have to wait for now. BUT the point is - I will be updating with some fun things we've been doing lately now that I'm not pecking it out on the iPad and have an actual keyboard to work with.
