Hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day. We spent a lot of time cleaning, studying, eating & chasing our now 20 month old around the house. Johnnie is full of energy as always. His favorite thing to do indoors is to turn the ball popper on & then shove anything he can into it. He loves to see if the stuff will come back out & when it doesn't he gets really upset, which leads to his next favorite activity... whining. I hate to admit it but it completely grates on my nerves to hear him whine about EVERYTHING. My, my, my (his pacifier), bay bay (his blankie), coffee, coffee (that's obvious- he likes to take sips) & basically anything else he wants. He finds everything funny & is constantly laughing. He now asks us for high fives, tells us goodbye & night night. He hits when he gets angry-hope this stops soon. He loves to give Joey kisses & loves to steal all his toys from him too. He now spends some time each night resting in his baby brother's swing & has discovered his new found love of his old exersaucer. The terrible twos are quickly approaching & I'm hoping that he will have grown out of some of his bad habits by then. We'll see.
Joey is now 21 weeks old. Back to getting up twice a night for feedings. I'm praying it's a long growth spurt phase because I'm getting more tired by the day. He continues to get more smiley by the day, is extremely ticklish & is completely enamored with his brother. He doesn't even hold a grudge when Johnnie decides that a good head butt is needed. This week he discovered himself in the mirror on his playmat & spent a long time talking to his new friend, his reflection.
