Boys. What more can you say?
More and more I'm realizing Alden is a numbers guy. I ask him what a letter is on a flashcard, and he says 2 (b/c there are 2 letters. For example: Aa). I explained pentagon yesterday including the building in DC and how it lost a side one time when a plane crashed into it, and he could tell me the next day how many sides a pentagon has! One time when we were splitting a treat between Rhianwen and Alden, Wally asked, "What would that make if we split it three ways?" Alden said, "That would be bad." (I think Wally was looking for the answer thirds). He also has funny views about disobedience. He was talking to Wally the other day and said, "If we disobey, we die." Wally said, "Have you ever disobeyed?" Alden said, "No." Wally, "No?!" Alden, "Well, yes. I died last night, but then I rose again." He's also had a huge surge of interest in books! I am so glad! He can sit through much longer books now and be interested in it. Uncle Christopher wrote a special book for him, and I think this helped him be interested even more.
Seeing his own book by Uncle Christopher for the first time.
Oh, he can't wait to really do this!
Corwin now has a tooth, and is working on a second one as we speak.
He is eating lots of different foods and has recently decided pears are worthy of devouring. Zuchinni is quite nice, and so is sweet potato. He is so close to crawling it's hard to believe he isn't doing it yet. He can move all over the room by inchworming (bringing his feet under him and then going back to his knees and moving his hands forward) and by sitting, going to his knees, turning, and sitting again. He's already pulling up to standing, and says things like, "Hae, hae!" when he does it.
How he gets around. It's amazing to me that he can get around a room this way.
Hae Hae! I got Peggy Doll from the dollhouse! So exciting!
Playing doggie. This was after mommy intervened and prevented the lea)sh from being t'ied around the neck. Kids...
