This guy is turning 2 - 2! - in just a couple of days. Where did my baby go?
He even has facial hair! Ha ha ha! (Liam likes to eat cupcakes face first.)
This guy (the smaller one) is turning 5, just like it says on his shirt!
Jude also starts a new school (just for the summer) tomorrow and T-ball. Both are with his best buddy James. We'll see if the friendship survives! Ha! The T-ball team is the Co-op Kangaroos. Jude is super excited about it.
The boys are officially settled into their "big boy" room. Jude sleeps on the top bunk, his choice, and Liam sleeps in his crib. It's working out pretty good. Only a few kinks to work out - Liam keeps Jude up late talking at night and Jude wakes Liam up in the morning. There is definitely a difference in personalities. Jude is such a lover and so sensitive. Oh, and a big pleaser. Liam is a joker that loves breaking the rules. Lord, help me!
We went to a concert at the Arboretum today with some neighbors and had a blast. It was a kids' singer and both boys danced and acted silly. Liam was dancing like a crazy man while Jude rolled down the hills. Adam and I watched dotingly and both admitted we are blessed beyond belief. Our boys are amazing! Liam's head was drenched about halfway into the event. It's only May and he sweats like a little pig. I can only imagine what August will bring. Ugghhh. We have been cooling off the past few days with a sprinkler and the kiddie pool that Gramma bought us last year. Liam loves to get in with his brother butt naked! I'm not gonna lie, I love it too. They are so cute.
There's no telling what this Summer will bring. Lots of silliness and excitement I am sure. I am gonna try my best to cultivate the love of art this summer with fun crafts like the one we did above. Maybe we'll make mud pies, collect and paint rocks and do some watercolor with popsicles. Not sure.
Maybe a little of this to kill some time...
Jude had on his Spidey costume and Liam attacked!
Spidey didn't stand a chance!
Whatever we end up doing, Summer is sure to bring more of this:
friends and popsicles
Easy Rider type outings (can't you see their rebellious spirits?!)
hot, sweaty days
jam sessions with friends!
Here is to an exciting Summer adventure with two amazing boys!
