We All Have Bad Days

Fortunately for Bear, he has Cade to take care of him when he's feeling down. Cade let me know that Bear was sad...and then sick...and then tired...and then cold. When Cade is cold, he always asks for a towel, so of course that's what Bear needed. Good thing I still have their old burp cloth towels in the closet! Cade also likes to be cuddled in the recliner when he's not feeling up to par. Cade was a good little care-taker. He cuddled and kissed Bear in the recliner until things started to look up.


Cade is just the cutest (well, except for Carson, he's pretty cute too). His vocabulary surprises me every single day. Lately, he's been really in to, "Hey Mom, check it out!" Sure Cade, I'll "check it out"...have no idea where he got that. Yesterday he walked into our room where Shane and I were catching up on our days and said, "Hey, whatcha guys talkin' about?" We both cracked up laughing. And for the last month or so, Cade rarely says "Mommy" or "Daddy." Shane and I are officially "Mom" and "Dad" now for Cade, and I HATE it! I don't even want to answer to it. I'm a Mommy...not a Mom. There's a difference and I'm not ready to be the latter.

These boys are just growing up too fast. Yesterday I watched Cade slurp his milk from his cereal bowl (one of all time favorite things to do) and then ride his tricycle up and down our street with such ease. It was a bittersweet moment. I love watching them grow up and I hate it all at the same time. I know it's normal, but those conflicting feelings still surprise me. Probably always will.

Play Dates At Our House

The boys love having friends over to play. And since they love it, I love it. Jack is a friend that is over frequently. They are so cute as they try to play together and share toys. This is usually how it goes...

Trains are almost always first. Funny how we set up some huge track and all three decide they want to play in the exact same place. Commical really.
Then they head outside and get super silly. They just might have touched tongues right after this picture was taken.
Again, all three all on the slide at the same time. Two year olds are funny.

Jack in an affecianate little boy. He started out just by patting Cade's head.
Then a neck hug.
And then full-blown kisses! It was pretty cute to watch.

Shane was kind enough to offer himself up as a human tunnel. They all then acted like trains as they went under the tunnel. And they were so proud of themselves!

The night ended with "The Cat in the Hat" and kettle corn. Wanna know what's funny about this particular play date? Jack's sister Sydney was there too. She slept on the couch amid the chaos almost the entire time. If only I could sleep as soundly!
Yay for friends!!!

Play Time

Their new favorite game..."stop and go." It can get a little crazy sometimes.

As you can see, Carson is in cute little Thomas the Train undies and Caders is still a little diaper bum. One down, one to go. I think I can, I think I can...
