Bennett- Thirty Months

Bennett's Likes: He still loves trucks, but has recently gotten into Toy Story.  He loves Buzz and Aunt MeMe got him a Buzz for Christmas that he's really excited about!

Bennett's Dislikes: Sharing with his brother

Not So Sure About: The vaccuum, he doesn't like when we use it
Weight: 32 pounds (73%)
38 1/4 inches (91%)
Clothing Size: Mostly all 3T now
Diaper Size: 5 Swaddlers during the day, 5 Baby Dry at night
Eating Habits: His eating is hit or miss.  It's helpful that he can communicate what he wants now, but sometimes it's a request like "hot dogs and applesauce" since he had it once at Nonny and Poppy's
He is talking up a storm.  He has learned all of the real names for people and proudly recites them when you ask for them.

Carson- Nine Months

Carson's Likes: He is a really happy, smiley boy, playing hide and seek with Daddy when he's in his high chair, clicking and making sounds with his mouth
Carson's Dislikes:
When you walk away, when Bennett yanks toys from him

Not So Sure About: The car

Weight: 20 pounds 6.6 ounces (47%)
Length: 29 inches (73%)
Clothing Size: Switched to 9-12 month clothing, plain 12 if it's Carters
Diaper Size:
Size 3 Swaddlers during the day, sleeps in size 3 baby dry at night
Eating Habits: Loves food!  Doesn't like bottles 
Sleep: Starting January 1st evening, he started sleeping through the night randomly!  Mommy is EXTREMELY grateful for this one.  Unfortunately, it's only been about 4 or 5 times total since then
He is SUPER speedy when he crawls now, it's actually quite funny.  He also can pull himself up on things now, and he can go from the ground to sitting up in a flash

Bennett- Twenty-Nine Months

Bennett's Likes: He still loves trucks, being scared by Daddy, giving Mommy hugs, being chased

Bennett's Dislikes: His latest is that he doesn't like "dark" things or when you turn the lights off

Not So Sure About: This whole brother thing-- it comes with sharing your toys, which he doesn't like
Weight: --
Clothing Size: Mostly in 3T now.  Some pants are still 2T if they button and zipper, and he can still wear some of his 2T shirts, but he fits better into 3T
Diaper Size: 5 Cruisers/Swaddlers during the day, 5 Baby Dry at night
Eating Habits: He loves his snacks and is always asking for them and also is obsessed with "yogu" drinks and the YoCrunch with M & Ms (but HE has to dump the M & Ms in)
He is talking up a storm, and he pees on the potty every night after his bath!!  He gets 'gushoos" (Gushers) as his prize so he's very motivated at this point :)

Carson- Eight Months

Carson's Likes: He likes standing on people's laps, when you make noises at him, playing peek-a-boo with Daddy, still loves baths, playing with his brother's toys
Carson's Dislikes:
When Mommy leaves the room

Not So Sure About: Sleep, he doesn't think he needs that

Weight: --
Length: --
Clothing Size: Just about out of 6-9 months, still in 12 month sleepers
Diaper Size:
Size 2 Swaddlers during the day, sleeps in size 3 baby dry at night, will move to size 3 during the day as soon as we are out of 2s
Eating Habits: He loves snacks-- puffs, yogurt melts, and crunchies are his favorites.  He also really likes baby food and he likes milk from Mommy much better than a bottle
Sleep: Still waking a time or two during the night
He is now crawling on all fours at times, getting really close to being able to pull himself up on things
