These photos are about a month old, but they are the only ones I have to share! Sammy loves to sit at Elijah's computer and pretend like he's playing games like his brother does.
Elijah has been a little bit sick for the past couple days. He acquired a mysterious rash that turned out to be a possible virus? We weren't sure, but Zyrtec wiped it out almost immediately. He has had a bit of a cough for the past few days, but has otherwise has been his spunky self. I hate to even put this in writing for fear of jinxing anything, but potty issues have improved a bit. We still have accidents, but he CAN keep his pants dry all day if we stay on top of asking him to go to the bathroom. He still does not EVER tell us when he has to go, so if we let too much time pass he will go in his pants. Baby steps!
And his behavior has gotten better, too. For about a week straight he wasn't able to play the Wii because of his "bad" words. We have not heard CWAP in almost a week! I think he is finally figuring out that C-word equals no Wii! I have been using the Wii as a tool to get him dressed and pottied in a timely manner in the mornings, which is working great. I can't even tell you how wonderful life is on the mornings when there isn't any whining or complaining!
We have Elijah's kindergarten round-up this week! We are excited to see his school and meet his teacher and new friends. Our big boy is growing up!
Sammy is sooo stinkin' funny lately. He has started putting 2-word phrases together, which is fun. When we walk outside to get in the car he says, "Mama dar?!" (Mama's car) and when we are getting ready to leave the house he says, "Goat on?!" (coat on). When we see a truck on the road he says, "Bee vru!" (big truck) and when we pull out of our driveway he says, "Bye bye, mome!" (bye-bye, home). He is a smart little boy! He can follow multi-step commands, which seems just crazy to us. He has a very strong little will, especially about certain things, but he can also be such a VERY laid back and totally chill little person.
Elijah and Sammy have shown signs of actually enjoying one another in the past few days. It is nice to see those rare moments when they interact positively. Of course we have plenty of the other kinds of moments, too.
I am leaving for California on Thursday morning for five days, so the beginning part of this week is going to be busy. I hate the thought of being away from my boys for that long, but it will be a very fun trip. Dan's sisters and I are taking his mom on a girls' trip! I can't wait to be on the beach, enjoying the California sunshine. I also get to see my mama!
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! Thanks for checking in!
