My computer is broken and since Jay is on his laptop quite often doing job application stuff, I haven't been able to post like I would like to. Hopefully this will change soon. I love being able to keep our family and friends up to date with what is going on with us and love hearing from you too!
Michael is 3 and it is such a fun age! He is talking like a little adult and Jay and I laugh daily at the cute things he says. I need to write them all down so I won't forget! We asked him a few months ago what he wanted to be when he grows up. He thought long and hard about it and then told us with much certainty that he wants to be a snowman. When we drive around town he will say the funniest things. We passed a gold car and he told me that he can't wait until he can learn to drive and have a gold car! We will pass a firetruck and he says he can't wait until he can drive his own firetruck. He told me the other day he can't wait to get big when daddy will teach him to play tennis ball, baseball, football, golf ball, soccer ball (and continued to name any ball he could think of!) He loves leading Joshua around the house giving him things to do and suggesting games they play together. He is officially potty trained as of Dec. and doing an awesome job with no accidents! He does still sleep in a diaper at night but wakes up excited to get his "undies" back on. He is very social and loves being with his friends at church. He has a blast with his best buddy Jocelyn. It is so precious how they recognize now that they are older that they are such good friends and get so excited to see each other. They are hilarious together and act like brother and sister (as evidenced yesterday when Michael was found to be sitting on Jocelyn's head at the mall play area and she came up with a cut on her lip and later that day she got him back by hitting him on the head with his play hammer...haha!) As active as he is, Michael loves to snuggle and I cherish my time snuggling beside him reading books or blasting off to the moon together in his darkened room! He has such an imagination. He loves to pray with Jay and I and is starting to ask for specific things we need to pray for. So sweet. He is such a gift and I love him so very much.
Joshua is 20 months now and absolutely adorable! He is copying everything Michael does and is so enamored with his big brother. He is talking a ton too saying things like "watch this" before anything he does. He like his big brother did loves shoes and putting them on and taking them off. The way he says "Michael" is so incredibly cute! He is a great eater which has been so nice since Michael is so picky. He loves the movie "Cars" and talking about Lightning, Mater and Doc. He is so laid back and loves to read. He will run up to me with book after book saying, "book, read!" He loves to cuddle too and will just sit in my lap with his head on my shoulder snuggling up for long periods of time. I love it! He has a smile that lights up the room and the sweetest personality. He is such a precious boy and I am so in love with him. He is definitely a Mama's boy right now which I love :) When I leave the room he follows after me calling, "Mama, Mama!" Our boys love Daddy time though!! They both love riding the "Bucking Bronco" aka Daddy's back and will both lay down asking to be tickled. Joshua is officially done taking a bottle at night and Michael has all but forgotten about his pacifier. They are growing up!
I will do my best to get more cute recent pictures up here! I have so many, I need to either get a new computer or get mine fixed! I hope you are all having a wonderful week! We love you!
Jay and Christy :)
