3.5 and 1.5

I'm in my second to last semester of school and I'm so tired of it that I make up excuses not to listen to my lectures or do assignments...so here's excuse #1 for the day: blogging! It's a good excuse mainly because I'm getting bad at writing down cute moments that happen with our boys. They have changed so much and so quickly this past while. Here's a little bit about our 3.5 and 1.5 year old

Again this is a tad long so beware...


David


David is such a sweet-natured kid..most of the time. He is always aware if someone is sad or hurt and wants to help them feel better, except when it's Gavin. I've been sick with this pregnancy quite a bit and  every I am he always tells me to pray and Jesus will help me feel better...so cute! We can really see his personality coming out. He tells us what to do all the time and to go to timeout or to be quiet. He is always right(I wonder where he gets this from), not really but he thinks he is and its hard to convince him otherwise. He is such a big helper! When I ask him to do something he usually replies, "sure I will mom"...he's such a little man. We really have to be careful with what we say because he is extremely observant. The other day Gavin spilt some milk and he says, "Oh gosh Gavin you made such a mess!".We started him in soccer this spring and it's been a love/hate type of thing for him. He does a great job in listening to the coach and kicking the ball, etc. in practice, but when it comes to game time he stays as far away from the ball as he can...I think all the crazy kids running after one ball freaks him out a little. BUT he will run his heart out up and down the field chasing the kids that are chasing the ball! He says the craziest things. Since he knows that I'm pregnant and he has seen other women who are further along with their big bellies, he now thinks that everyone with big bellies(pregnant or not) is pregnant...In Costco he points out a woman(not pregnant) and says "mom look she's got a BIG baby in her belly!". It's hilarious and completely embarrassing at the same time. Many conversations with him involve the words poop, fart, booger, bugs, wrestling, etc...this must be a boy thing!

Likes:
-Animals, animals, and more animals- this kid can't get enough of them. He asks me everyday to go to the zoo and to get him books at the library about his favorite animal for the week.
-Books- we are always reading books and going to the library for more. Second to animals, his favorites are the I Spy books and he's pretty good at finding everything!
-Dinosaurs
-cars
-running/racing- we go on walks most days of the week and he wants to run races with you the whole time...who needs a dog? This boy will keep you in shape! He's been known to run(mostly) a mile or two total. I see a track star in the future.
-swimming- he's part fish
-playing with Gavin, unless Gavin is taking toys from him
-playing games with the family in his room- he makes up all kinds of games for us to play in his room. The other day he and Gavin went in there and he shut the door. After a few minutes I got nervous and I walk in and David is standing on his night stand(Gavin attempting to get on) and he jumps a few feet away to his bed, then proceeds to tell me it's his fun jumping game for him and Gavin...they are crazy.
-friends- he loves playing with this buddies because they are rough and tough like him and always sword fighting or wrestling.
-taking showers
-snugs- he asks me every night to snug with him
-reading the Book of Mormon- I think this is more to prolong going to bed but he does ask every night to read it!
-yogurt
-bugs


Dislikes:
-pants and long-sleeve shirts-  at church he rolls his pant legs up as high as they go...thank goodness its summer and I don't have to beg him to wear a jacket.
-wet shoes- things quickly turn bad if his shoes get wet...he dislikes it so much that he has gone barefoot at parks to avoid wearing the wet shoes.
-dirty hand/clothes- I think we go through a pack of wipes a day because this kid has to clean everything. If his clothes get food on them(not dirt, dirt is ok) then he has to change them. He's also very concerned if someone else spills food on their clothes.
-naps- I'm afraid these are quickly diminishing
-the dark
-wearing shirts when he sleeps
-having the fan on

Random facts:
- his favorite song is You Might Think by Weezer on the Cars 2 soundtrack. I liked it until about the 268th time of playing it for him. At least he has decent taste in bands.
- favorite show is Octonauts
- tells me to ask him what he is thinking about all the time. usually he's thinking what animal he wants to be when he grows up or what animal he wants to ride on!
-STILL in the middle of potty-training



Gavin





This little one is following closely in David's footsteps, literally. He is always doing or trying to say the same thing David is, though Gavin is a little more rambunctious in nature. He's always trying to climb on things or up things...the bad part of that is he is extremely clumsy! He's been close to a broken nose, has had multiple goose-eggs, and had so many bruises and scrapes its just apart of him now. He still doesn't have much hair. I just took him to the Dr for his 18-month checkup and he weighs just a few pounds less then David, what a brute! He's pretty dramatic when it comes to just about everything. Just started nursery about a month ago and he loves it thank goodness! He loves his passy and blankets, just like his brother. He will eat just about anything! He's been known to steal my broccoli...makes me proud mama here:-) Says words over and over again, until you repeat the word to him.
