Saturday after dinner, we looked outside and it started to rain. The boys got super excited so we headed out to play in the rain. We haven’t seen any really good rains yet this monsoon season, but this one was nice and really cooled the evening off.
The boys gave up baby bottles quite a while ago. Recently they discovered their daddy’s blue camelbak bottle. They loved it so much they were constantly fighting over it.
Here is the beloved item:
A couple of weekends ago their daddy decided to take them to the bike store to buy their own. Matt said he couldn’t even get out the store with them needing them. 🙂
Sorry that was is a bit blurry. Matt said Ez was giggling away and then dead silence. Out cold clutching his bottle. (don’t worry Matt was safe, the picture was taken at a red light)
The boys love drinking their water out of their big kid bottles. 😀
Today Matt dressed the boys for church. He dressed them alike as we do most of the time. Noah kept bringing him a different pair of shorts, and then he kept bringing them to me. I told him he was already dressed and we weren’t changing him. He would not have it and had on the cutest, pouty face. I finally caved. I figured they are old enough to start expressing themselves more.
Matt and I were watching tv the other night and the show “What would you do?” came on, it deals with topics from annoying cellphone users, public abuse to racism. I always end up being shocked and saddened by the ones on racism. This particular story really was eye opening to what we are facing as Noah and Ezra age, being a young, black male has its risks.
Here is the story. I am embedding just Part 2 because that is where the racism part starts, but here is a link to Part 1 if you are interested.
The boys love to jump in their cribs and on the couch (yes I allow this). When they do this they are always holding on to something, plus using the natural springiness of the object they are jumping on. Last night Noah figured out how to jump standing on the ground! He was super excited and proud of himself. 🙂
I tried to catch it on video. It’s not the best video, it is a little dark, and Taffi and Ezra make an appearance. Noah was catching one to two inches of air every time.
Fathers’ day was also my dad’s birthday. We celebrated with cake and presents! Happy Birthday Dad!
I finally have removed the Fathers’ Day pictures from Matt’s camera. Yes I am aware that was almost a month ago, but I don’t like to touch his camera.
On Fathers’ Day we made waffles, went to my parents’ for lunch, and then napped! Here’s some pictures from our day.
