Dille Love.

There's a lot of love in the Dille house these days. We just can't seem to get these two to take pictures by themselves. Mostly Carter just can't seem to let Owen take a picture by himself. He loves to sit with him and give him lots of love. Sometimes too much love that turns into a choke hold, but we're working on it, and as long as they are supervised they both enjoy it. Here are the boys from the past week posing together. (Really, what did we do before digital photos?) Lots of hugs, love and giggles. I'm in love with all three of the men in my life.
Love this Owen face.
Owen is also learning how to retaliate and occasionally grabs Carters hair. I imagine as he gets older we'll have more incidents like this.

Play time, Carter building with blocks, Owen playing with Carters feet. Saying "cheese" for the camera.Carter giving loves. Since this, I did trim Owens hair. I hadn't realized how tall his mow hawk was.
The little man by himself. 7.5 months.I've started the weaning process with Owen. Things are going well and unlike last time I plan to make this as comfortable as possible on all of us, meaning we're doing this slowly for my body. Right now Owen is taking bottles all day with half formula half EBM. It's been a little tricky trying to figure out what formula to use and I'm trying to find one that won't break the bank. Recently I'm trying the target brand similar to infamil, the ingredients are exactly the same but half the cost. Owen still has acid reflux and is on prevacid so I'm trying to find something that will work for that too. What formula has worked for you?
One nice thing about weaning is that feedings take half the time and today I was able to prop the bottle up and help Carter with something. I'm still a little sad, but mostly ready for this transition.

They are so cute! And what a chunk Owen is, I love it! :) Mason was a chunk as well, hopefully the next boy will be too. :)

Oh I LOVE it! All the pictures are so cute! My favorite is the one where Owen is pulling Carter's hair - the look on his face is like he totally knows what he's doing. That's so fun that they are becoming such buds. Ava is the same way as Carter - loves her little bro SO much, but basically smothers him most of the time.

Seriously, why don't we live in the same state?? I miss you guys!
