Yesterday, Jonathan found a candy wrapper underneath the boys’ bed. He asked Will how it got there. Will said, “Maybe, it hopped up the stairs.” Jonathan said, “Wrappers don’t hop up the stairs on their own.” Will said, “Maybe, a bug got in the wrapper and hopped it up the stairs.” Uhm, was the “bug” a little boy?
Last night as I was cuddling with Will before putting him to bed, he looked around our room and said, “Mommy, you have nice decorations.”
The other evening, Drew asked for a tissue. Once Drew got it, he blew his nose on it and then placed it on his head. When Jonathan took it from him, Drew was quite sad. He looked pretty silly wearing a tissue on his head.
The other day, I was on the phone. All of a sudden in the middle of my conversation, the phone line went dead. I glanced over and realized the cause. Luke didn’t like not having my attention at the time so he had unplugged the telephone. I could tell it was fairly deliberate since he had come and tugged on me to get me to play with him. I had tried to get him interested in his toys, but he wanted Mommy too. He definitely got my attention.
I was just commenting today to Jonathan regarding some personality differences with our boys. Jonathan said I should blog about them for future reference or comparison. Anyway, Drew seems to enjoy and not mind playing by himself for hours.
Luke on the other hand hates to be playing by himself. He is happy so long as his brothers are around. It’s not even enough to have just Mommy and Daddy around.
Will also can play by himself, but he hates to play outside by himself and will often sit down on the ground to wait for Drew to join him.
Luke is our little soccer player. For more than a month now, he can be seen ever so often dribbling a ball down through the diningroom and into the livingroom. He loves to kick balls.
Will is starting to recognize his letters now, which is exciting to me. The other night, I was reading a book about tools and asked Will to name each tool. He did, and I was amazed at the tools of which he knew the names. When we got to nuts and then bolts. He said, “bolts” with a strange pronunciation which made me think he was trying to sound it out on his own. I asked him if he was trying to read it, and he said “yes.” So, I asked him what each letter was. Without hesitation he said, “B, O” and then had some difficulty with the other letters. I then asked him what other letters were. He was able to name a few without help. This is the start to reading!
On Thursday when the Drew, Luke, and I were getting ready to leave the library to join Will for his Trike-A-Thon, Drew pointed to a lady and said, “She’s cute!” I thought it was hilarious and told the mom. She was pretty pleased and said how adorable Drew was. I think Drew made her day. 🙂
While Jonathan and Will were driving in the car today, Will asked, “Daddy, can we walk the in the clouds sometime?”
We have been talking about moving. Drew asked us if it would be funny to move. Jonathan asked Drew if he thought it would be funny. Drew said, “a little funny.”
