The Same Thing.

It's been a week of a lot of the same things over and over again.

Owen follows me where ever I go and uses my legs to pull himself up. Now when I walk, he follows holding on to my legs as well. This new stage makes it difficult to get much done in the kitchen or any where else for that matter. Carter also likes to follow Owen around and give me the play by play of what Owen is doing. Right now I hear a lot of "O-we crash." Here he is hanging on my leg. Owen is a very mild tempered little guy. He's pretty laid back and doesn't do much crying. Except for when you put him to bed, then he brings on the tears and whines. I'm doing my best to give him objects of comfort in his crib. Right now he has a burp cloth, blanket, rattle, aquarium toy and a green spotted giraffe. Each time I go in to get him in the morning or from naps he has the giraffe in hand. Good to know something I've put in there is sticking. And yes, he still sucks his thumb.
Some Saturdays are best spent at home playing in the backyard in the rain with daddy and the hose, while your baby brother watches longingly from the window.Carter is the snack bandit in the house right now and with his summer growth spurt he can pretty much reach everything. Owen also loves the pantry now and I frequently find the two of them playing inside it. I can't decide when would be a good time to baby proof the pantry door.
This is the...
"Mommy eat... fish" face.

Some of our LOVES this past week.

Carter loves to feed the dog. "Eat Dog" and "More Eat Dog" are pretty common phrases we hear. He thinks it's hilarious to make him sit and shake his hand. Along with feeding the dog, Carter loves "Bolt" more than "Cars" this week. Although while watching Bolt he still clutches onto his Lightening McQueen Car.

Owen loves to climb in the fridge and pull the dish towels off the oven door. He loves to eat grapes, cut into very small pieces. He can easily eat Carter under the table these days. Anything you put in front of him he'll devour. He loves to climb underneath the kitchen table and cruise around all of the chairs. He also loves looking out the sliding glass doors. He cruises back and forth all afternoon. He loves to play peekaboo and has learned to cover and uncover his face to play.

Mommy loves asiago cheese bagels from Panera Bread and a cold coke. I also love the feeling of accomplishment I've had this week. The house was cleaner this week than it has been in awhile and that feels good.

Daddy loves coming home early on Friday afternoon to play with the boys. He also loves going to the gym with us on Saturday mornings and sleeping in on the weekends.

With that being said, we're getting ready to do it all over again. Have a great week everyone!

It is fun to hear what your boys are up to. Mine also LOVE the pantry! They are always bringing me snacks to open for them and getting clobbered by falling cans! It is an hourly thing, I swear!...Yeah for cold cokes!

Hey Angie! I'm not as "sick" these days, but I'm looking into getting a high risk dr. becasue I've had problems with my gall bladder, kidney stones, and heart palpatations among a couple other small things. We'd love to go out with you sometime though. Maybe dinner or a movie or something. With or w/o kids? We just have to make sure we catch me on a good day.
