So good.....

This morning the boys were so good while we were getting ready for school. It's amazing some mornings how good they can be and how disasterous the mornings can start on other days! Luckily this was a good day (even with a few mishaps). Ethan's so cute when you try to wake him up he says "No No Mama. Nigh-Night" But if he'll let you get him dressed without complaints, you know you're sitting pretty. Waking up Aidan can be scary too, but for the most part if Ethan's in a good mood, Aidan will follow suit. Today he was more interested in Ethan's Tiggy (one of Ethan's most prized possessions) and Ethan didn't even seem to mind. Tiggy became a good distraction to getting Aidan dressed. Once we got to school, Aidan turned on his personality though. Just sitting in the high chair looking cute and innocent and next thing you know he's pulling pictures off the wall. His teacher thinks he's going to be the bully and need "time outs". We've always thought that he would be bruiser...time will tell I guess. I hope not, but so far he hasn't been the smiley, attention grabbing, emotional (sometimes over-emotional) one like Ethan. Ethan got hugs all around from his buddies Dezarion & Mercedes when he arrived in his classroom and then strutted around the room like he owned it. Quite the character he is! It was a great start to the day and I sure wish there were more mornings like this....but I'll enjoy the thought of this one for awhile.

Easter 2008

Well, we survived Easter 2008. Jay's parents came down a day early and spoiled the boys with necessities (diapers, formula) and goodies too. It was great to have them visit. Today we ventured out to church without our usual 3:2 or 4:2 adult:child ratio....all in all it went alright. (I say that because I had Aidan and he was in a good mood....Jay and Ethan did some exploring around the church during the service. Afterwards it was back here for a day full of "Brain Challenge" on the Xbox for us. Ethan did his usual playing with cars while jumping on all the furniture and Aidan did some prety good crawling. He's walking along furniture a little bit now. Shouldn't be long now before he starts chasing after Ethan and then we're in trouble. We predict he's a bruiser! :) Time will tell. We visited our old neighbors this evening. Ethan's always good for a few laughs when he's around their dog. I think he thinks all dogs are named Halley right now. He's pretty cute with them. But not as cute as he and his brother are right now in bed. Happy Easter to all!

Hi all.....
Just a quick entry right now....as Jay & I are in the middle of a Wii "Cookin MAMA Cookoff" (Thanks Jeanne!), but I had to start this thing off by saying... JAY HATES Blogs! He even wants a shirt that says "I don't care about your blog" I'm guessing he will be ordering one soon now that I started my own. :) HEE HEE.... But I think it'll be fun for Aidan & Ethan to read someday and hopefully others will read and enjoy our boring lives too.

Enjoy your Easter everyone!
Love to all -
