We had some visitors over and of course A and E were bouncing off the walls. Head butting their legs, jumping on their back and freaking out. So I chucked them both in the kitchen and told them, "You are out of control." Angrily A turns to me, hands on his hips and snaps, "No Mom! YOU are out of control!"

A comes up to me and tells me very officially, "Mom, I'm smarter than you. I'm not smarter than Dad, but I am smarter than you."

A and E were wrestling today and it was A's day. He was doing really good keeping his little brother subdued, although E put up a pretty good fight. Once they were finished, Daddy and I told E he did a really good job! He looked over at Daddy M angrily from the floor and said, "No, I din not!!" he flailed his arms on the ground and continued, "He's still alive!"

E and A were playing T-ball today with A's new gear. I of course laid down the rules. No hitting anyone with the bat. No swinging at the ball until every body and body part is clear. Simple enough. Not 5 minutes into it, I hear a blood curdling scream from A. E runs inside, eyes big, and says, "I din'n know what I was doing!" Big brother had a pretty good goose egg on his head.

Thanks for the Help

Round Two

This will be the second times I've written this blog. Don't you just love technology! Anyway, I was writing about this week and a few updates about the boys. First- the updates. A is 21 months old now and becoming more and more familiar with English every day. His memory is incredible. We will be outside playing and he'll hear a plane and he'll look up in the sky and point to it, saying 'plane!' The most interesting thing about this is I never remember teaching him what a plane was or that it flies in the air. He impresses me every day. He's just now begun to put words into a sentence. His newest thing to say is 'how are you?' I'm sure he doesn't really care what the answer is to this question quite yet, but since Mommy asks him, he might as well ask Mommy too. :) A is very good to his little brother thank goodness. He has his moments when he'll throw a ball at him, whip him with a burp towell, steal his binki or most recently, poke him in the head with his booger sucker. E is a pretty good sport for the most part. The booger sucker is the only one he wasn't too happy about. But like I said, A's kind moments outweigh his naughty ones by far. I've caught A putting the binki in E's mouth when he's crying and even his bottle sometimes. He's pretty good at getting it in his mouth facing the right direction which is a big deal for such a little guy! He'll even hold the binki until E has a good grip on it. A will also help burp him and come let me know when E is fussy. He is a very good big brother.
I'll doE's update in a second. I'm trying to follow the pictures as best I can. This week was very busy for us! A had his K relatives come visit on Wednesday and they're leaving Monday. We've been running around with them, shopping, eating out and playing a lot. A has been loving the attention! Usually when family comes to visit, his napping schedule gets a little messed up. On Thursday we caught him asleep in his high chair after eating a sandwich. The poor kid was wiped out! M thought it was hilarious. Mostly because when he was A's age- he did the exact same thing! Not only did we have the excellent pleasure of having the K's visiting, but his Aunt M came down Friday night with a few of her friends. A was thrilled. He gets a little sick of just Mommy and Daddy and Aunt M and her friends stayed with us. So he had fun playing and 'flirting' with them when they were here.
Ok- E's update. He is 9 weeeks old now and growing like crazy! I would say like a weed, but I don't like using that word when referring to my baby. I want to get rid of weeds and E is no weed. :) So if you can think of anything else I can compare him to... Anyway, he is 13 lbs now. He's gone from 8 lbs 4 oz to 13 lbs. What can I say? My kids just love to eat! They are K's after all. E is getting much better at holding his head up. He's been able to hold it up since the day he was born, he's just learning how to control it now. He is also cooing and smiling at us a lot. I love that he's learning how to use his face!

So- all is good in Provo Utah. The weather is terrible. It snowed today. Its getting to the point
where it's just annoying when it snows. I'd like the weather to transition and stay in its transition.... not go backwards. This picture here is one of those snowy/rainy days. A and I just stay in and watch movies all nice and cozy. I took this picture in particular because of where A is sitting.

He'll normally sit on the couch to watch a movie or in his poof which is closer to the TV usually. But for some reason on this day he wanted to sit on the other side of the room against the wall. He was there for about half the movie. Cute boy.
As for M and I, we are doing good. School is still going. Bills are still coming. Work is still work. It will be nice to get a vacation this summer.
