Tuesday Tidbits

Only Lennox this time...
:Lennox:
1. We pulled the walking motorcycle at of the garage and it took you a few trips down the hallway to get the hang of it and to become obsessed. 
2. My kitchen is always being town apart by you. There is always pots and bowls on the floor with about five utensils.
3. You now want me to lift you up so you can shoot the ball in the hoop.
4. You go through your nasty cold and passed it down to the rest of us. Your nose is still running though.
5. You are becoming a great eater, you just take forever. You love almost anything, especially with ketchup on it.

Tuesday Tidbits

:Austin:
1. Lennox's birthday was this past week and you suffered with not getting any presents. Fortunately, Lennox is so nice(too young) he is sharing with you. But, if I tell you to give Lennox back his toy than we have meltdowns.
2. You love to "snuggle" and I don't mind it at all if I can.
3. You totally got into Valentines this year and completely understood it. Holidays are becoming so fun.
4. You picked out Ninja Turtle Valentines and chose to make a Ninja Turtle mail box.
5. Grandpa and Grandma Allen gave you and Lennox a Fortsy for Christmas and it just arrived this week. You have tons of fun playing in it with your brother.
:Lennox:
1. You love the Fortsy too. When it is deflated and you want to go inside you will crawl over and try to raise it over your head. That is my cue that I need to pump it up.
2. Your birthday was anti-climatic. We were doing a party on Sunday so I had nothing planned for you actual birthday. You weren't the happiest and even fell asleep at child watch. We went to Red Robbin for dinner and you got a balloon and that was your favorite gift of the night.
3. We had your cake on Sunday with Raelyn since you guys are only 6 days apart. We did a Valentines theme and it turned out so fun. You were not sure on the cake and all the attention. You also kinda cut your foot on the plate holding the cake and got frosting all over your toes and after that you were done. You did eat some of the cake.
4. We brought you home and knew you weren't acting yourself and a cough was coming on. We spent a sleepless night with you and a fever was brewing. 
5. Monday the fever and sickness grew into a runny nose and drool. Unfortunately, you aren't into sleeping more and cuddling but we did sneak in a few good cuddles before you realized that you weren't having that.





it's my birthday and I will sleep at the gym if I want too

Tuesday Tidbits

:Austin:
1. It snowed and was it was freezing, but your tears convinced Dad to take you out and build a snow man and it was well worth it.
2. We had to start you on some antibiotics for fluid in the ear. The ENT said it wasn't infected but wanted to see if the antibiotic would get rid of the fluid. Next route is tubes...ugh
3. We went to Omaha for the weekend to visit with friends and you hit it off with their little boy, Ren.
4. You enjoyed the Omaha zoo but didn't think it was too amazing. I am not sure if animals are your thing.
5. You would rather have a cheeseburger at "Unc McDonalds" (Mc Donalds) than chicken nuggets.


:Lennox:
1. I wasn't looking forward to switching your car seat around but I might be soon. You hate the carseat and protest every time.
2. Our friend's house had stairs and you climbed them very well. However, we weren't there long enough to teach you how to go down yet but you do know how to get off Austin's bed the right way.
3. You still take 2 naps a day usually and I don't see that changing right now. I remember Austin stopped morning naps at 1.
4. You were put on antibiotics for an eye infection but the doctor wasn't so sure it was but just to be safe he decided too.
5. You are such a happy baby but you have yours days like most people...that you are not happy or content. I struggle with those days because it messes up our happy, carefree routine. Usually, the bad days co-inside with bad sleeping the night before.
Lennox and I were both having a bad day and I sent this picture to Gary letting him know.

Tuesday Tidbits

:Austin:
1. I am trying a new discipline plan. You get 5 strikes (yes 5, because you would never succeed if I only gave you 3) and if you get up to 5 then you don't get any dessert. It worked well for week 1 and now week 2 you are starting to show less interest. I will need to find a new discipline plan.
2. You would rather take a bath then have me just wet your hair a little in the morning to spike it.
3. You have requested eggos for breakfast for a month now.
4. You like to get Lennox in trouble. For example, you will leave the bathroom door open on purpose so Lennox will follow you. You will play in the hall so Lennox will pull out the alarm. You will throw a ball under the table to get Lennox to chase it.
5. You are worried about getting baptized one day because you don't want to plug your nose.

:Lennox:
1. Your second set of teeth on the top left came through.
2. Two weeks ago you learned how to sleep through the night...at 11 months old. You still are getting up too early.
3. You love canned peaches and pears.
4. When you want something you always look or point and say what sounds like "that" and "this".
5. You are hating being put in the car seat, ugh.
6. You purposely bonk heads with us or just on a wall. You also use your head as a weapon.
7. You are becoming a drool king and have a rash under lip and onto your chin because of it.
8. I nick named you the beast. Why? Because after your afternoon nap the beast comes out. You are not content until after dinner. It makes dinner prep extremely difficult.
