Will's turn to show off...

Will started bringing out some letters tonight, and to our amazement, he began spelling words...real words. I had to get him on video reading these words. Sorry, the lighting is bad, but you'll be able to see some. Also, some of the words at the end he was making up, I think. Haha!

Daniel showing off...

I got a little clip of Daniel showing off before bed tonight. Please excuse my voice...it is trying to come back!

He's a hard working man...

Before going downtown to meet Daddy yesterday, we made a pit stop at Granddad's office. Granddad wanted to get some pictures of Daniel sitting at his desk...look how cute!
"Yes, I am now a working man, and this is my desk!"
 "I'll punch the numbers for you, Granddad!"
 "Yes, I do believe THIS is how much we will be making this year!"

I love them!

The boys went and spent the night with Nana and Granddad last night so that Mama and Daddy could go see The Hunger Games! I met them halfway this morning to pick the boys up. This is what I saw when I pulled in to the Publix parking lot...
 Sweet brothers!!!
 On the way home, Will told me I needed to get one of those roof things in my car. Haha!
Dad also told me that after their bath last night, Daniel was running around naked for a few minutes. He stopped playing, ran in the bathroom, stood in front of the toilet, and peed on the floor. He has been watching his brother going to the bathroom, so maybe he will want to give potty training a try sometime sooner than I had figured he would!

We belong in the Zoo!

Today was our first day of spring break! We slept in a little, hung out at home for a little while, and then headed downtown to meet up with Daddy. We went to the CNN Center where Daddy works and talked with a few of his friends, and then we had a nice family Chick-fil-A lunch. After that, it was time to head to the Zoo. Here is a cute picture of Will in a big bird's nest. I tried to get one of him and Daniel together, but that wasn't happening!
 Will also enjoyed looking at the Kimodo Dragon! 
 I think Daniel's favorite exhibit was the gorillas. He yelled something and was waving at them. It was pretty cute. Here he is on the way home. He was literally in this position before the car turned out of the parking lot!! We had a very fun family time at the Zoo!

Our Home Day

On Monday, the kids stayed home with Meme and Poppi. They had both had a rough weekend, and they were both running fevers. They went to see Dr. Elder, and he confirmed that Will had an ear infection, and Daniel had a double ear infection. I started getting sick Tuesday, so I left work early to get checked out. Nothing was wrong with me but drainage, but I felt bad, so I took Wednesday off work. Will was feeling great, so Daddy took him to Jackie's house for a normal day. This is who I got to stay home with....and this was him the first 2 1/2 hours of the day...still miserable, still cranky, still hurting...
 Then his pain meds kicked in, and he was happy for about 20 minutes. Haha! He also got a little bit of an appetite. I kept telling him to smile so we could send a picture to Daddy...but I think he thought Mickey Mouse Clubhouse was more enjoyable.
 But then he remembered that he likes to show Daddy what he's eating....Cheerios for Daddy!!!
 Thankfully, I called Dr. Elder, and he decided it would be best to change his medication. After one dose, and about an hour wait, he ate ALL of his dinner, played while I bathed him, and was SO happy!! When we saw Daddy come down the driveway, he ran to the door and was banging on the window yelling "Da-da!!!" This was a shot Brad grabbed of him when he came walking up!!! Too sweet!

Poor little ones!

The boys aren't feeling too well today. Will has been complaining of a sore throat and an ear ache, and Daniel's allergies are really bad lately. They both have been running slight fevers, too! So, it's Meme and Poppi to the rescue...they are kind enough to come up and take care of them and take them in to the doctor tomorrow! I hate it when they feel bad!!

Odds and Ends

You might remember this outfit from when Will wore it on his first trip to the beach. It looked a little different then...well, the initials were different. Nana's good friend, Joanne, took Will's initials out and was able to put Daniel's in and you can't even tell it has been messed with!!! I am so happy that Daniel will get to wear one of my favorite outfits his brother once wore!!
 In other news, I found a great piece on Pinterest that I wanted to do. I think Brad, and maybe everyone else, thought I was crazy, but I went to Lowe's and bought the supplies, and my sweet husband built the frame with me directing him, and I stained it, and then, wa-la! I now have a cute piece of furniture in my laundry room! I love it!

Park fun!

Nana and Granddad took the kids to the park Friday night. They had a wonderful time together, and the weather was so nice. Here is Will...he has always been able to hang on to anything...since about 5 months old!
 Daniel's favorite thing to do at the park...slide!!!
 Look at these precious boys!!! They make me so happy!

Overnight Guests

Saturday afternoon, Beth and Zack and the kids came up for a visit. We played, grilled out, and had a wonderful time. This was late Saturday night, and all the kids were sleepily watching Curious George on the tv. How cute are they sitting there together. Kate has her arm around Daniel. Can you believe they are 1, 2, 3, and 4??

Meme's Pictures

Meme sent me some pictures the other day that she had taken in the past week. She and Poppi came to our house last weekend and she got this cute picture of Daniel.
 Last Wednesday, Kate and Will were playing at Meme and Poppi's house. They made crowns and suddenly became Princess Kate and Prince Will.
 And Meme also got another picture while at our house of Daniel and his Daddy overlooking the water in our backyard. So sweet!

My little boy loves sketti!!

Last night we were at Nana and Granddad's house. Nana made one of our favorite meals...spaghetti! Daniel could not get enough of it!
 He loves to eat! So happy!!
 Smiling at his brother!
 Give me another bite!!!

Precious Boys

Nana and Granddad took the boys to the park this afternoon, and here are a few pictures that they took and sent to me...
 This little boy loves to play on the slide!
 And Granddad took a really good picture of Will right after he finished building his car and before he let it go on the ramp this morning. 

Our Saturday Morning

This morning we headed out to Home Depot. We needed to get a few things, and we were meeting Nana and Granddad there so that the boys could spend some time with them this weekend. At the end of our trip, we happened to see a race track and kids building Will's favorite things...race cars. Well, we had to do it, too! Will had a ball...
 He enjoyed hammering!
 Daniel did not build a car, but he got an apron and pin for this workshop, too. He had fun watching what was going on.
 And he even got to race the car down the track.
 This was the best picture I could get of the two of them. I hope this gets easier one day!
 All that working wore him out!
 You get a certificate...
 And here's the finished product. Next month, they are building bird feeders! I guess we'll do that, too!
