They look so calm, it's because they're under the influence. They're
addicted to TV. Mostly because when it's cold I find myself letting them
watch more TV than they probably should. But it's summer now! Finally.
So the TV's been off and the goofiness has begun.
Normally if I'm trying to get something done, like start dinner, etc.
I'd turn on the TV and know they'd be entertained and not get into
trouble. Well so the other day I was busy with something and I left them
playing in the living room. I come back a few minutes later to see both
of my children playing INSIDE the bookcase. It struck me funny so I took
a few pictures of them.
Alyssa has recently become more interested in her dolls. She pushes them
around in her stroller and puts them in their baby bed. Well the dolls
have come to life! hehe
Warning to other 2yr olds: Don't try this at home! A mommy was
P.S. Yes, Evan's shirt says "Future Prom King" - Compliments of my
She loves this doll bed that her Aunt Cindy gave her. It's a miniature
"pack and play" and since it's mostly fabric and plastic edges she can
get in it without hurting the structure of the bed. AND she loves that
she can get in it all by herself ALTHOUGH she wants us to hand her
blankets and dolls and such so that she can pretend to be a baby! :)
Said in a mommy voice - She IS a baby!
She is one goofy character. Since summer has begun she has decidedly
become interested in taking her shirt off. She has one shirt in
particular that is her "favorite" and asks to wear it often. She likes
it because it is stretchy and she can take it off all by herself.
has also become extra interested in her toes
or rather what is in between her toes. Bare feet are something new
for her and I recently showed her ONCE that there was lint in between
her toes. Ever since she checks her toes for lint AT LEAST once a day if
Alyssa and I have matching work out balls.okay well so hers is just a
bouncy ball.but they amazingly match. She
got her ball for her birthday from her friends Natalie and Sam. She was
pretty stoked when she realized she could sit on it and that it matched
my work out ball. She attempt so copy cat my work out moves.let's just
say I think she has more fun that I do!
Good thing she's close to the ground, I'm guessing it doesn't hurt when
Speaking of getting hurt. I have no idea how, but Evan cut his finger.
It looked like a paper cut and it was bleeding all over my shirt. I
couldn't get it to stop bleeding to I asked Luke to put a band aide on
it. The band aide lasted about 10 seconds and then he managed to chew it
off and it was still bleeding, so we had to call in for firmer
reinforcements! We kept it on until bath time and then it had stopped
bleeding by then. He didn't like it, but didn't complain. What a good
patient he is. :)
Oh and did I mention he can crawl up stairs?!
more than just one now! Before he used to hit his head on the second
step and so he couldn't get up onto multiple stairs. But I guess he's
finally figured out a way to move the big head of his out of the way!
This is him at the top of the stairs looking through the baby gate. He's
very proud of himself and doesn't know his daddy is standing right
Well until next
P.S. Do you see the weeds dying in our backyard? Finally! We're almost
ready to seed the yard with grass! Yeay, so excited.
