First 2weeks of summer vacation
I can't believe its only been two weeks ~ it feels a bit longer than that (already).
Although I love having both of my boys home all day with me it amazes me how much they torment each other. One minute they can be sitting and playing with their toys or watching a program and within seconds I hear screaming and yelling and than "MOOOOOOMMMMMM". UGH~
To think that I worried that the age gap between Jonathan and Thomas would cause problems (they would have nothing in common, not play with each other, not like each other, etc) they fight like my brothers used to (they are 18mths apart). At times, to quiet things down, I say 2 little words to Jonathan "Summer Camp" and he stops pestering his little brother.
A few days ago I was cooking dinner and the boys were playing in the living room. All was peaceful, too peaceful. Within minutes of me realizing the sweet quietness I hear:
"NOOO Jonathan" (sounds like jontun)
..... i hear Jonathan laughing....
....Jonathan saying "stop it Thomas"
Than I hear Thomas say
"UGH Jontun..leave me alone NOW" I see Thomas walk through the kitchen, into his room and shut his door.
Everyday it seems like Thomas is adding more words to his sentences. As long as Jonathan keeps pestering him ~ his vocabulary will keep growing! lol
In this picture Thomas was licking a blue sucker, which turned his mouth and lips blue (which happens to be his favorite color). I told Thomas to go to the mirror and look at his mouth....he walked over and said 'Hey Mom...I got boo whips..look...boo whips ~ boo my favorite color". I LOVED the way he said "blue lips"...every time we visited another family member I asked Thomas to tell them what happened to his mouth when he ate his sucker. He would tell them the story and than end up "boo whips".
I am truly amazed at how well he is progressing ~~ all the pestering and ticking each off is only a teeny part of our day. To watch the boys play and talk and trade Pokemon cards ~ its absolutely priceless!
