Ramblings and Pictures

April is almost gone, and Caleb’s birthday is almost upon us.  3!  I can’t believe he’s going to be 3!  Caleb is our head weasel.  The other day when he woke up, he told us he was sick.  He laid around for about an hour, and then played the rest of the day without mentioning being sick.  Well, until after he woke up from his nap, where he told Daddy that, “I’m so sick” in a super pitiful voice.  He felt “bedduh” when it was time to go outside.  We’ve been trying to tell him how disgusting it is to pick one’s nose, but he doesn’t care.  It feels like 70% of the time I can look at him and find him picking away.  Joshua has noticed too.  Be sure and look for that picture below.  Joshua thinks it’s so funny when I tell him not to do that.

Caleb really enjoyed having some of his cousins spend the night last week.  He was so excited waiting for them, and could hardly contain himself once they arrived.  He yelled out, “Daddy, the COUSINS are here.”  He enjoyed showing them his toys and how he runs around the kitchen pretending he’s “Speed.”  I think my favorite part was how he wouldn’t say their names, he just called them cousins when he wanted their attention.

Joshua, our shy and serious weasel, is not afraid to throw fits.  His big thing is to throw himself on the floor and cry.  It makes me want to laugh when he does it, but I’m looking forward to him outgrowing that.  He also loves putting everything in his mouth.  Crayons, markers, chalk, bark, rocks and foam all taste pretty good to him.   Yum!

April brought us lots of candy, a visit from Grandma and Grandpa Lee, the Timco Family Fun Day, and beautiful weather.  Hope you enjoy a few pictures below.

Happenings…

Things are going pretty well here.  We had a good Easter weekend.  We took Caleb on his first Chuck E. Cheese outing. He played a little skeeball, hit some moles, and enjoyed putting tokens into the machine to watch a train ride around a track.  That’s some 25 cent fun right there!  In the end, he had enough tickets to purchase a worm, but he enjoyed the cotton candy that Daddy purchased better.  We went to Burlington and had Easter lunch with the Johnson Clan.  Caleb enjoyed the Easter Egg Hunt and playground time with his cousins.  They taught him lots of new ways to enjoy the slide…climbing up the slide, which he finally mastered without falling and sliding down on his belly, and going head first on his belly.  Luckily, he decided not to try going down backwards.

Joshua had his 4 month appointment.  He’s growing and chunking up.  I think there is a saying, “the more the chunk, the more they thunk.”  I’m not quite sure what it means though.  He was treated to his first food other than breast milk yesterday, but did not seem too impressed.  He continues to survive all that Caleb throws at him…or stands on him, whatever the case may be.  Caleb enjoys waiting for Joshua to  “seep,” as he does the sign language for it , and then pouncing on him while he makes his lion, or tiger, or some other ferocious animal’s roar just to see Joshua startle.  He then laughs.  I try to explain that it’s not very nice, but he doesn’t get that yet…or maybe he does!  He just waits for Joshua to close his eyes again so he can try again.

The boys have a busy couple of weeks coming up:  Three birthday parties, one being Caleb’s second birthday, (I can’t believe he’s going to be two!) Joshua’s baby dedication,  a top secret mini getaway trip planned by Ben (and he won’t tell us where we are going), and the live show, Elmo Makes Music, at the end of May.  Should be fun!  I have a lot of video to post at some point, but I’ve been having problems with our video editing program — that’s right Adobe Premiere Elements — now you are getting bad publicity on this widely read blog.  Once I, or I mean, Ben gets it figured out we’ll post some.  Enjoy the pictures for now.
