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

Both of my kids have extremely distinct personality traits and skills. Ethan from the day he could crawl was a climber. He'd get onto things I didn't think he could even reach. He'd crawl under chairs in the most absurd ways, under a bar here, over this one. No tangled mess of anything was too good to keep him out. He'd find a way to squirm, squish, and maneuver through it!

Now that he's much more agile, he's graduated to new heights.
Do you remember these things?? The base will move when you step on it and apply the right pressure in any direction. He somehow manages to climb on top without the base knocking him right on his little bottom!

We feel this is cause to celebrate around here!

Looks like he is standing up there singing!! Hooray I made it up here... and now what do I do??
Very cute pictures. He is getting to be a big boy. He will be in nursery soon too. WOW!! Amazing how they grow up fast isn't it.
