There are some mornings that we wake up and the boys are both having challenging days. Days that require all of my attention at once. These days I think "this is going to be a long morning." Then I decide we either need to get out of the house, or figure out something to occupy Nathan.
Then there are the rare mornings like today, when each child decides they are happy. We've had a great morning in that Nathan has decided to fall in love with some old favorite toys again. It's really cute to watch his imagination develop. He just started really playing with his "little people" this week and making them talk.
Elijah is finally old enough to sit and play by himself. He's actually really strong, and great at balancing. If he falls, he falls backwards on to the boppy pillow. This is different from his brother who would fall forward and faceplant in the floor the minute you looked away.
This morning Nathan is playing with his trains. Elijah is jumping al…
I've even trying to get back to running lately. This sometimes means running with the boys, all 40 pounds of them!

Here's our pattern now: Elijah rolls onto his belly, Elijah screams and won't roll back over eventhough he can, I flip him back onto his back, Elijah waits about 10 seconds and then rolls back onto his belly. Repeat this process about 25 times and it's a party. :)
Laughing: Elijah loves to laugh and I love to make him laugh. He is really one of the happiest babies I have ever seen. Even when I put him to bed he kind of just babbles himself to sleep.
Sleep: Elijah is still taking 3 naps a day right now: a one hour nap in early morning, a two hour nap in the late afternoon, and a two hour nap in the aftern…
