Tuesday Tidbits

:Austin:
1. We went to the hot air balloon festival and it was an even bigger hit this year with you. You loved it! You loved the whole process of the balloon filling up with hot air to then taking off.
2. I really think you pooping in the potty is here to stick! On Sunday you actually told me you had to poop which you had not done yet and that was huge! I still stress out every time I have to leave you alone but I am sure that will diminish with time.
3. We went to Union Park this past week and got to ride the famous carousel. You figured out that you want to ride the ones that go up and down.
4. On Sunday we made snickerdoodles and you wouldn't eat them and said you didn't like them.
5. If you are a ninja turtle then you are always Raphael.
6. On the way home we were talking and you said something right and you said "I'm a genius!". It made me laugh to realize you knew that word and used it correctly.









He was putting me in the tent. AKA piling every pillow and blanket on me.
that forced smile kills me
:Lennox:
1. You do not like your jump-a-roo. You will not jump in it and start crying after 5 minutes in it. However, you LOVE TO JUMP! When we hold you that is all you want to do, so why not in the jump-a-roo?!?!? You have the strongest legs.
2. You are getting attached.
3. Your alopecia has now spread to the lower right side of your head but the part that originally lost hair is growing back kinda. The pictures are from last week but now all the patches connect.
4. Your wearing 6-9 month clothing for the length but you could probably wear 3month clothing for width. You are so skinny!
5. If you lose your toy because you drop it or your brother takes it away, you get mad! It's so interesting watching you develop such an attitude and personality.

:Austin:
1. YOU LEARNED HOW TO POOP ON THE POTTY! I thought this day would never come but it did and we are all so happy about it! You love to tell everyone you meet that you can poop on the potty! (seriously, it is kinda embarrassing) We've had 2 major accidents, both at the park, but I am still trying to stay positive.
2. We taught you that we don't say the word "stupid" because it isn't nice. However, now Dad and I catch ourselves saying it and you always make us say sorry...which is good. 
3. This week you are into the Ninja Turtles again and you learned their names.
4. You are starting to want our soda every time and this is causing a problem because you don't need the caffeine but I DO!
5. At church you learned about being baptized and you pronounce it "bow ties".
6. Dad got you a tee, baseball bat, and baseball and you guys practiced hitting and you caught on really fast.
You always request that I take a picture with you and the bear when I do Lennox's pictures.
 

One night I came in to check on you and found you like this. I pulled back the blankets and you were covered in sweat.

:Lennox:
1. You have master the art of rolling over both way but you don't do it all the time.
2. You are consistently waking up at 5:30am. You are happy to be awake and within an hour you want to go back to sleep for an hour. You also consistently wake up between 11-12 and 2-3 at night to eat. You are napping 3 times a day. We are lucky if your morning and later afternoon nap last 45 minutes and your afternoon nap usually will go over an hour and possibly two.
3. We've tried giving you formula and you do not like it at all. I would like to have that option but for now we will just keep trying our best.
4. I took you in the actual swimming pool for the first time and you didn't love it or hate it. You were very calm and neutral about it and the water was even freezing!
5. You are done with the swing so now we need you to warm up to your jumper and that is taking longer then expected. You will not jump! You try and attack the toys the with your mouth and they are too far to reach so you end up falling over and sucking on the seat.

This is the Lennox smile that we all fall in love with everyday. You can't get more happy then this.

:Austin:
1. Dad went to Philly to take a test and that morning he left you woke up looking for Dad and when I told you he was gone you cried.
2. Your latest pretend play in flying in an airplane.
3. The 4th of July was so fun and you loved everything we did. Unfortunately,  you didn't make it 10pm for the big fireworks since you passed out at 8:30pm.
4. Whenever we go to a park to play the first thing you do is take off your shoes/sandals.
5. Every single day we talk about all your friends that moved and why. I am growing old of that conversation and it makes me really sad too.









:Lennox:
1. You are now a side sleeper.
2. You don't stop wiggling and people comment on it all the time.
3. Your drooling is getting worst by the day. 
4. You started shaking your head as if you were telling us "no" and it is really cute.
5. Toys really get your attention. You love playing with them, especially the soccer ball.
