After our St. Patricks Day fun with green the boys thought we could just celebrate every color. So this is red oatmeal with (peanut butter). That smile is a little forced, huh buddy?
Cooper is still obsessed with basketball. Right now he prefers to play with no one play defense. How funny is that? This guy LOVES playing by himself!
One of the very few down sides to having our kids close together in age, is that we rarely separate them. We all love being together all of the time and find it hard to pry the kids apart so that we can have time alone with each of them (you know like all of the parenting books say you should, oops!).
So, this semester at school we decided to put Owen in preschool alone on Wednesdays. Oh my, how I LOVE Wednesdays. I hate being away from O, but it is so much fun to see Cooper by himself and how different he is without Owen there. It's been such joy to see so many sides of him that I usually can't see because of the way the boys interact. They really are best friends, but they feed off of one another and are more rambunctious together. Don't get me wrong...I love their "boyness"...but it's just something different and its been a treasure for me.
I typically let Cooper pick what we are going to do for the morning after we drop Owen off. He is so easy to please and so far all he's requested that we go to the mall and ride the train. He is such a sensitive guy and a great helper. Today he even asked me to get Owen a treat from the candy station in the mall after he got a piece of gum. He does a great job of sharing and watching out for his sister. He chased her around Payless playing peek-a-boo when she got tired of being held. Of course, this led to some loud squeals from Sadie...but it was priceless!
Someone likes being naked!!! Daddy was giving baths while I cleaned up from dinner. I heard squeals and the pitter patter of wet feet!!! This is what I saw running to me! We are SO blessed!
