doing good!

Playing together after breakfast on Friday









Today has been another busy day, and a bit challenging. We had some snow up here, and it made the roads terrible. I bundled up the boys and drove them to our toddler playgroup. The drive took longer than usual but we made it 20 minutes late. Elijah did great playing with the kids and seemed to have a good time. The minute we walked through the doors he exclaimed "Yeaaaayyyy!" He had a big tantrum when it was time to leave though, which lasted about 1/2 hour. It was wearing to say the least.

He is scared of the dogs and likes to tease them. He is nice when we show him how to treat them, but likes to yell at them and pretent to kick them occasionally. He likes to stay by my side most of the day, which is difficult when trying to cook dinner or clean up. It is fun though when we are cuddling or laying around. He loves to mimic and copy EVERYTHING. Right now he is laughing at daddy, and repeating everything he is doing. He has a great laugh! He's also been sleeping through the night for the last 2 nights! That has been very nice. He still doesn't like falling asleep but the fact that he will sleep for a good 11 hours is super.

It was such a treat to get to meet Elijah today. And if my two weren't throwing tantrums on the way out of playgroup, I would have lent you a hand. Both of your boys were ADORABLE today. So glad our paths crossed.
