The Boys Lately...

Carson (at 2.5 years old) :

  • Counts to 20, skipping from 15 to 19 :)
  • Sings the abc song, take me out to the ballgame, twinkle twinkle, are you sleeping, Barney song, Jingle Bells, and some other songs he learns at school
  • Wears underwear every evening, will be wearing them to school in January
  • Is constantly asking "Mommy, what you doin?"
  • Loves yogurt like its candy
  • Loves lollipops and gummies
  • Loves his chocolate milk
  • Loves to help us cook
  • Has not had a passy in about 2 months! I was so proud of how adaptable he was, I can't believe I waited so long to take it away. We just clipped the top off one by one, night after night, telling him that the dishwasher broke them and he had to throw them in the trash and the garbage truck took them away. He STILL talks about how the garbage truck took his passies.
  • He is in 2T clothes, size 5 diapers (hopefully not much longer), size 7 shoe
  • He calls his underwear "ummywear"
  • He loves to do everything by himself
  • He loves his brother so much, and he tells him he loves him without any coaching, that makes me so happy; he loves to help me carry Colin's carseat to and from the car at school
  • He can name his friends at school, and he tells us what he does at school
  • His favorite toys at the moment are trucks, tractors, trains, balls, and his little people, and these tiny pencil toppers called sqwishies - he calls them his animals
  • He absolutely loves the show Caillou and is starting to imitate Caillou (he told me there were Monsters in his closet, and it took me a while but I figured out that he learned that from Caillou)
  • His memory surprises me every day, he remembers trick or treating at Halloween, remembers his Birthday, and he knows the route to daycare, and many other things I can't think of....
  • He is absolutely hilarious!

Colin (at 4 months):

  • Loves to stand up assisted and sit straight up so he can see what's going on.
  • He is drooling like crazy and chewing on his fingers constantly
  • I still swaddle him and he sleeps much better that way, still wakes to eat after about 6 hours of sleep
  • He coos up a storm when he is "playing"
  • Loves his passy
  • He eats 6 oz about every 3-4 hours
  • He weighs 15 pounds
  • He wears size 2 diapers, size 3-6 months clothes (some 6 month stuff fits but is a little big still)
  • Loves to grab his feet while laying down, he tried to get them in his mouth
  • Loves to roll his tongue like a hot dog bun while he is cooing/babbling
  • Is very close to rolling over
  • Moves his knees and legs while he is on his belly trying to crawl
  • Thinks he is 6 months old already, he will not be content lying down playing for long, he prefers to sit up or stand. The bumbo seat has been really helpful lately.
  • His hair seems to be getting more blonde
  • He is the happiest baby and is usually smiling, such a sweet little thing

This will probably be my last blog before Christmas......So...........................

 Merry Christmas to you all!

I love the Holiday Season with little ones around....its magical all over again :)

Carson loves the tree, the 1st night he kept crawling under it, he also like to put his toys in it and watch them fall through the branches.

We had a great Thanksgiving in AL with our families...
