Addie Paddy Poopers (a nickname that she is going to kill us for) has been pulling up to stand for a few weeks now, YAY! She is VERY proud. She also thoroughly enjoys bananas which is why there is still some on her face in this picture.
The boys have gotten more creative with their gun making.
Jared had a birthday yesterday. The big 3-5. I feel blessed to be able to celebrate another birthday together. I'm also glad that he caught up with my age again so I don't have to hear about how young he is. :)
We started Soccer which warrants its own post at some point. We have 1 cousin and 2 other close friends whose children play on the same team so that is fun for us. Alex cried Saturday when his game was cancelled due to rain. I, being a complete softy, took them to McD's playland and he got over it rather quickly, of course.
Useful instructions from Daddy. I am sure he was saying "Eli, you HAVE to focus." That is what we tell him on a daily basis. "Eli, FOCUS!" Whether we are trying to put on his shoes or ask him to put something away, focusing is a big "focus" right now. :)
Alex scored twice this week and Eli had one "almost" that we are very proud of.
Eli's ipod/angry birds/cut the rope addiction has grown to epic proportions. We are cutting him off as of now. He'll survive since we found Spiderman on Netflix. It's the 1967 version and the boys are obsessed. I have them down to 1 per day and they are only 20 minutes long so that is a plus.
Thumbs up has become big in our household. Not sure how or when it started but started it has.
I started posting this last week and now it is Tuesday and I am finishing it. We had flu shots yesterday and Eli at 4 years and 5 months weighed 43 lbs, Alex was 36 and Addison at 14 months weighed 18 lbs 11 ounces. My babies are growing well and growing up FAST!
