Wow, this week is flying. I'm fighting a cold (again) and washing my hands fiendishly to do my best to make sure no one else gets this nastiness.
We've been enjoying our double stroller. 2 walks outside this week, and it would have been more but it was rainy on Tuesday and yesterday I was more ill than I am today. The more walks we take, the more movement we make, and the better we all feel. I need to take a picture with the kiddos in that stroller. Aaron loves being with his brother. They're so cute!
Evan is pulling himself up to standing with regularity now. Aaron came running on Tuesday - he was in his brother's room at the end of nap time, which he's not supposed to do - but he was yelling "EVAN'S STANDING UP IN HIS BED, MOM!" and so I went running and sure enough, he'd pulled himself up!
Evan's also beginning solids, which are still sporadic. He likes them just okay - but he sure likes the idea! He wants that spoon in his mouth so much - and then when it gets there he makes the funniest faces! So far we've tried avocado and sweet potato. Can you guess his favorites?
Aaron's grasp of alphabet recognition astounds us all. He's not even three yet! I think I'll be starting some more formal blocks of learning time this fall. He won't be going to preschool, but he does need to learn how to sit still and learn. At least, this momma thinks so!
He's also getting more imaginative with his play which is GREAT. I love my boys.
In other news, the ants are once again overtaking us. It must be that time of year. I have a great husband who helped me rid the kitchen of all the hidden and not so hidden crumbs last night. So hopefully all the little buggers have to eat is the POISON. I am so mean. But these are the big yucky black ants. Ew.
And here's the back view of my head/haircut. It is about an inch and a half longer in the front. The nice friend who cuts my hair for me said this last time, "Whew! You have a ton of hair! How hot does this get in the summer?" And I was hit with the lightning bolt of understanding - Ahh, this is why I dislike heat. I have a thick woolen blanket of hair on my head (which does come in handy come January!). I really am thankful for my hair.
Oh, and I want to try this project. I probably will once it gets un-rainy enough for me to iron outside. I'm a little concerned about toxic fumes.
