Climbin' and pickin'

We have a little climber in the house! Little pea has been attemping to climb for awhile, but just recently started having some success so now it is all he wants to do! With this new skill also comes new bumps and bruises and scrapes. He got his first black eye last week after falling off the front steps! And, no, I didn't get a pic of the black eye. I am sure there will be more opportunities for that!

Helping to unload the dishwasher! Little pea has also really started imitating us and wanting to help out. He loves to push the vacuum, he tries to wipe off the table, he likes to use a wipe to clean his hands, and Jason even found him standing in front of the toilet like he was peeing. Ha!

Pickin' our first pepper harvest! He finally started wearing a hat again. Isn't he cute?!?!

Eli has also discovered that playing in his crib delays naptime! He just started taking longer naps again, but the trade off is lots of fun and games in the crib. Instead of laying right down to go to sleep (as he usually does!), he likes to jump on the bed, blow kisses, wave, sing, do somersaults, and whatever else he can think of to stay awake. It's hard to be mad or frustrated about it because he is so darn cute! We just have to ignore him and try very hard to keep a straight face! At least he is not screaming and crying!!

It's funny how much our boys are similar at similar times. I just spent at least 1/2 an hour waiting for Jadon to settle down and take a nap. He couldn't stop jumping/rolling around like crazy and giggling. It was very cute. But hey, he's still sleeping 2 hours later!

I love that picture in the hat with the peppers. He's adorable!

Reese did that at nap time at about his age too.It is hard not to laugh.

How cute that he is copying. Reese is quite interested in the peeing thing too!! BOYS!! Love the hat.

Glad you updated, I was missing Eli--oh, and you too.

He's getting cuter by the day! Gotta love the energy of little boys, don't you?
