We have been enjoying the summer!! The boys love playing outside on their swingset, bikes, push trucks, and pool. They want to get into everything. The twins have been saying a lot more words and getting into a lot more trouble!! Yesterday I found Andrew had climbed over the couch onto the island then down onto the kitchen counters. He then proceeded after I took him down to climb on the kitchen table, the coffee table, and so on. They are really testing me especially while I am trying to make meals. Caleb is definitely becoming our meaty one. He has a little bit of chunk to him. He eats a lot and anything, Andrew is the opposite. Andrew just wants to play with the food. Their new favorite words are no and mine so that has been a lot of fun. Andrew's other new thing is waking up Eli which Eli detests. The other day Eli told me that he would wake himself up. Andrew never fails to find a way into his room and wake him up though. It is tough with not enough hands.
Eli is definitely going through a jealous stage. He wants a lot more attention then normal and to do it he is talking in baby voices like his brothers. He also has been acting out towards his brothers. I see him when he thinks I am not watching push, pull, drag, etc his brothers around. So we have had an increase in timeouts.
Despite all the craziness there is a lot of fun being had. We got the pictures back and they are awesome as soon as we purchase them I will put some up. The boys are having so much fun playing at our new house. We are looking forward to our vacation to the Outer Banks which we leave for this weekend. The time is flying but we are enjoying it. Attached are pictures from our summer activities. The ones with the boys covered in paint is them finger painting a picture for Dad for our anniversary.
