Archie has enjoyed gluing beans for a while now. I decided it was time to let Caleb have a try. He loved it and was actually very good at placing those tiny beans in the piles of glue.

It's been tough trying to ween him from the bottle.

I plan on painting this chair.

He started using a booster seat this week. The high chair is packed away.

This was great for working fine motor skills.
Did I mention that Archie is REALLY into dinosaurs? I find myself hiding dinosaur books to avoid being asked to read the same one 12x/day.

Sharing A Room, Sunday Photos and Valentine's Breakfast

 We decided to have the boys sleep in the same room and convert the nursery (Caleb's old room) into a playroom. So when we put the boys down for their first nap in their shared room, they spent hours yelling, giggling and singing but not a minute sleeping. So Caleb napped during dinner instead. He was nodding off and I was still able to feed him, I wish I had got a video it was adorable.
Today we actually got them to nap together but they were pretty sleep deprived. Hopefully they adjust soon because that was a lot of moving furniture and I need their nap time.

This morning before church. 

While I cooked the boys Valentine's pancakes with strawberries and cream they busied themselves making me a breakfast in their kitchen.

 They were pretty happy to see them.

Archie Valentine

So I did these photos with Caleb and I was so sad I didn't have any with Archie (he was napping when I took Caleb's) that I took some of him later. It would have been fun to have gotten them together but it's so hard to do by myself!


He LOVES dinosaurs right now.

This is him trying to show that he will soon be 3.

He was my 2nd shooter for last weekend's mini sessions.

Here's another one.

 The boys came with me to my mini sessions last Saturday and played in the park with Jacob while I took photos. Archie is quite the climber. Caleb loves his graham crackers.

This was from this morning. The boys rode horses together.

Here are a few photos from this past week. The boys love going to the library and hate leaving it.

I was so happy when I found "Just Grandma and Me" by Mercer Mayer in GERMAN on the computer! I wish I had the actual book at home. Archie is so into Little Critter these days.

He's gotten so much better at eating crunchy fruits and veggies. Yay for apple slices and carrots!

playing together
Archie is not big on participating with hand motions but loves to sit and listen to stories.
