Movers and shakers!

It has been quite the eventful couple of weeks here. Brody has been slithering around on his belly for awhile now and within the last couple weeks Gage starting crawling around on his hands and knees. Brody still does his army crawl but also crawls on his hands and knees and is getting quite fast. Brea has been trying to crawl but going in reverse for awhile but today she did go forward a couple steps. We decided to set up a superyard in our living room to contain them for now since they were going off the mat onto the hardwood floor and losing their toys under the furniture all the time.
We also had them upstairs in the spare bedroom the other night and Gage and Brody decided to crawl out into the hallway where I was while Jeff was giving Brea her bath. the baby gate went up today! The boys have also been trying to pull themselves up by grabbing the bar on the changing table lately and we caught Brody first kneeling in his crib and then standing in there today and shaking the bars. Yep....the cribs also got lowered today :).
Also Gage has had a cold for the past few days and the other two are starting to sniffle too but not quite as bad yet. Hopefully it moves out of here quickly and they don't get worse. We have been so lucky so far so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
Gage went and stayed with Grandma and Grandpa Hug for a couple of days a few weeks ago so he could lots of one on one attention. They want to take turns taking each one of the kids so he got to do things he hasn't done before like go shopping and sit in the cart and go out to a restaurant and even got to go by himself to the zoo and rode a pony, train, visit the goats and ride a different merry-go-round. It sounds like he was on his best behavior and enjoyed all of the attention. Thanks Grandma and Grandpa H!
I have posted some of the recent pics below. They kids go back for their 9 month check up soon so I will try to post more after that.

We're in trouble now!
