Video Friday – 12.31.2010

I thought I would change things up a bit this Friday and share some videos instead.

We gave the boys bikes for Christmas, we thought they would be excited.

I was trying to get the boys to say “Happy Birthday Abby,” but this is all I was able to get.

Checking out our new hand me down boots and thought a game of peek-a-boo would be fun.

When mom is under the weather

I honestly never wanted my toddlers to watch much tv and had succeeded fairly well in this area. Most of the success was due to the fact that the boys could have cared less! I have tried in the past when I was a little tired or not feeling the best to get them to watch something, anything, but they wouldn’t.

How fast things change! They are suddenly addicted to the Wiggles (or Giggles as Noah calls them). Nana and Papa had purchased the video for our trip to Colorado and the boys watched it a few times there and never asked for it once we got home, so we put it away. Then one time they didn’t nap well and were cranky well before dinner time, so we put it in and it worked like a charm. They would ask for it every now and then after that, but not all the time. Well this past month I have caught three different bugs and have been sick more often than not and just plain tired. I have started to use the Wiggles to get little breaks throughout the day.

I feel slightly guilty because they have watched so much of it lately. Yes it is in short spurts 10-15 minutes, occasionally longer, and I truly love getting to rest a little bit, but I feel guilty.

I know this is just a temporary thing and soon I will be feeling better (I have to believe I am building up one heck of an immunity for the rest of the cold & flu season) and we will be back to reading lots of books, playing legos together, and spending most of our time outside. They beg for it several times a day now. 🙁 I don’t give in that often, but they do eventually wear me down. I think once I have my energy back will have to go through a Wiggles detox program.

The boys are ridiculously cute when the beg for it (see above pictures) and really participate in the video.

Yes he grabbed two lighters and shared with his brother, and yes we took a picture before taking them away. That's what the child safety part is for right?

Noah doing his hair.

Sitting and playing. Okay Ez is almost sitting, but it's hard when your brother is hogging the toy!

Get ready.


That just doesn't look comfortable.

Arm, arm, arm? Okay he says arm instead of hand.


Abby's just chillin'

Just hanging out.

Cousins having fun.

Someone has been needing his blanket more.

Noah wants it to be a riding lawn mower.

Ezra doesn't mind pushing.

Playing computer games together.

My cuddly Noah.

Sleeping Ez.

Here’s a little video of the boys spinning. They had been spinning for a while and were getting a little dizzy. This is what they do when they are tired.

Hitting the road!
They have no idea how long the day will be.
Noah fighting nap.
Trying out the buckle toy.
Deep in concentration.
It was more fun this way.
Rain! (it came just in time, the boys were cranky and this cheered them right up)

McDonald's is now featuring Noah as an attraction (seriously that boy is a ham!)
All ready for bed.
Nothing but glow worm.

Jumping Boy

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.
