Family Fridays: Big Boys

The boys are getting bigger every day. It seems like they do new things every day too. Andrew is trying to talk more and more. Lately, he is asking for more and more things, particularly Winnie-the-Pooh ("Pooh, Pooh") and Thomas videos ("doodle, do, do"). If you don't come right away, he tries to pull you by the hand with all of his 18-month-old might. It is very funny.

Andrew also likes to make friends with everyone. This older grandpa on the right is one of his favorite friends around here. But Andrew knows who his real grandpas are and is starting to say, "Pa, Papa," when he sees pictures of them.

Both boys keep begging to do school lately. They would do school activities all day if I had the time. Aaron is making neater lines and coloring precisely (even when drawing on the computer). It seems like overnight he went from coloring everything on a page all one color to trying to get each detail as accurately as possible. Not that he does get everything inside of the lines, but he wants to. And if you are coloring with him, he will definitely want your drawings to match his idea of perfection. I got in trouble with him the other day for getting a couple of stripes on Percy the train the wrong color.

Since his birthday, Aaron has also been making decorations and presents for everyone. He is constantly asking to draw a picture for grandma, cut something for grandpa, or make a game for Andrew. I think his generous spirit is inspiring, even if his productions are not always Hallmark worthy yet.
