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.

Kisses from the Ethan

Presenting Ethan. My little kissing baby! I have yet to actually catch him doing this in a picture, but what's better than a little recording that only family members will love? And even then, that's debatable. :) Ethan is learning sign language right now. Its a little different with him compared to Ayden. I don't have as much time to focus on Ethan, but we're getting there! He knows the sign for "more", "eat", and "all done". All very important things for him. 
He also knows a few words too! Again, the essentials for his little life, "No", "Uh-oh", "Baby",  "Thank you", which sounds more like day-doo. He knows "Mamma" and "Dadda", oh yes, and "Mine". He uses that one to bother Ayden. He'll usually grab a toy. I'll hear Ayden shrieking something like " NOOO Eeesen. Dat's mine!!" And then I'll see Ethan running away his head ducked down saying "Mine, Mine, Mine..." as Ayden chases him down to try to steal the toy. Parenting just isn't really parenting when you only have one child! Ok, it is, its just very different.
