The boys are continuing to grow like little weeds. They are actually outgrowing their pants. They are really starting to seem like little boys more and more. The Bee chatters away all day long and they are both more and more expressive all the time.
It's also fun to see them still becoming closer as brothers. They help each other out quite a bit. Especially if one of them is upset (like getting his diaper changed or some other aweful thing) the other one will bring him his blankie.
They are quite hooked on their blankies right now. There was quite a meltdown the other day when I had to WASH them. Yikes.
They are able to play a bit more independently these days, which is nice, although they never miss a chance to get into trouble if they can. The Bee is especially sneaky and will hide himself away if he thinks he will get in trouble. Like taking the liquid soap out of the bathroom and hiding out in The Bugs room to 'check it out'. I really have to keep an eye on that one.
The Bug had become quite a masterful artist lately. He loves to color and likes to sit up at the island and color all over his pages. The two of them have also discovered that crinkling up paper into a little ball and throwing it into the garbage is fun. I have to watch what they are throwing away!
The Bee is quite good at throwing things in general. In a good way. He's good at throwing balls and kicking them. Unfortunately his favorite game seems to be throwing something straight up in the air (like shoes, toys, cars, anything he can lift) and not paying attention to where it may land. Look out!
One of the most interesting things to watch is how the boys are growing emotionally. They show sympathy and compassion. They often say 'sorry' for little things. Although not when I tell them to.
me: tell your brother your sorry for hitting him
bee: no way
And one of The Bees favorite things right now is to point out when someone is sad.
Mommy sad. (I am probably more annoyed, but whatever)
Bearsnacks sad. (cartoon movie)
It's pretty funny. And often accurate.
And we've been able to spend time with Grandma and Grandpa as well as Nana and Papa in the past month. Fun for everyone.
