moments and milestones

Brother drank from a straw for the first time and did quite well.

He has also started to copy me blowing on food. If he keeps it up, he just might be able to blow out his own birthday candles!

Brother is getting very, very good at climbing stairs. He climbed all the way up our stairs to the basement. Now the next big goal is getting him to climb down safely!

One morning Little Man requested hopefully: "Will you [s]pike my hair?" And so I did.

Little Man was playing with an animal puzzle. He carefully put the animals in the right places, and as he did so, he informed me, "They're going to Dairy Queen."

The other morning Little Man was underneath Benjamin's three foot ladder (he's been using it for the remodel) making tapping noises. When I asked him what he was doing, he responded enthusiastically, "I'm doing dangerous work!"

Brother has also started clapping.

As Little Man stared at his scrambled eggs, he told them in a very Max-ish voice: "I'll eat you up!"

wonderful moments and those sweet faces. We've had friends visiting for a week and I'm consoling myself by visiting and catching up here in blogland. Looks like wonderful times in your little corner of the world.
