Okay, so when we set out to expand our family i knew in my head it would be louder and more chaotic in my home....but shish! I feel like most days when my boys in the same room together i could loose my mind. Is it just me or do some of you feel this way?
  • They intentionally run into each other just to see how the other will react.
  • They squeeze each other just to aggravate the other and then says, "but i was just try to give him a hug."
  • They bite
  • They tackle
  • They take one anothers toy
And then they come screaming and crying that their feelings are hurt!!! I mean hello someone help me.

I know it's all normal and it's what i have to look forward to for the next ye many years...but i may send them to the zoo!!!!

reading and loose teeth...

Micah's first loose tooth (the one on the right in the middle bottom pair)

These things mark our New Year. Micah woke up this morning and said, "Mom, I think I have a loose tooth." Me, being a little leery said, "Let me take a look." Sure enough, he has a loose tooth on the bottom front. I can't tell you the emotion I felt at that simple thing. I look at him at times and marvel at how big he is getting, but a loose tooth- that is huge. So, now we get to hear for the next however many days or weeks it takes to fall out..."Mom, I cant eat that, I cant brush my teeth, I can't play with that it may knock out my tooth."  I cannot wait to see him without his first tooth. I may actually boy is growing up.

Okay, so if that wasn't enough, he is reading too. We have been working on this for some time, but to see it actually take shape then come out is something quite remarkable. We have been going through sight words and word charts and everything else you can think of to help him progress. Well, tonight Trevor took a First Start Reader book to bed for reading time and I heard these words,"Micah you read that whole book, way to go buddy, you read the whole thing!"

Oh the great joys of parenthood!
