A few things

Watson is 14 months now and if you ever read anything on my blog you would probably know he is such a mess! He certainly has a few nicknames here just like his sister, but his latest one is the boy named Sue-you know that country song? Well he is rough and tough and wild and silly and loves sticks, rocks, dirt, anything outside, climbing, wrestling, and everything else boylike you can imagine. But the boy prefers Hayes' old pink lovies to sleep with and her old pink paci. And he loves the bottles, sippy cups just don't appeal to him yet. So the funny part is that he is all over that pink stuff and he will straight up fight you for it if you try to take them away. A few weeks ago we lost his blue paci somewhere in the car on the way to church. So, what do you do? Just give him the girly purple one that we use as a backup and maybe they won't have to give it to him in the nursery-hahha right! So I picked him up after church and the nursery worker (who was a different one than we dropped him off with) asked if that was his purple paci. Yes, we give our son pink and purple pacis, but only in desperate situations! Apparently he got into a little scuffle with another child who was trying to take it. No way was he letting that purple paci go! But thankfully this week we are down to just the blue and brown loveys and all blue pacis in the house. Pink ones are out of reach!
So here is the big boy with his blue paci and his sippy cup of milk that he will take a picture with, but will throw the cup down on the floor if you tell him to drink from it. I got a great tip for transitioning to the cup from bottle from my sweet friend, Shannon. I am hopeful it is going to work!!
And here is little mama. Soooooo incredibly sweet to "baby" and to Watson. She only has 4 days of school left in the 2 yr old class. I cannot believe how big she is getting. Her new favorite thing is to take showers which just makes her seem so old to me!! Her ballet recital is coming up in a few weeks and we can't wait to see how they all do.
And another thing both my children love, cooking! They love to pretend to mix anything up. Hayes always pretends to make cookies or enchiladas?? and loves to serve everybody. She won't even sit down at her tea parties b/c she is so busy getting you more food or tea or coffee. She's a hostess in the making. Even Watson will go get a bowl and spoon or fork out of the play kitchen and stir it up. They are so funny and keep us laughing with their silly selves!
