It’s Monday- a new week, new things happening here…
***This just in!***
Lincoln, he of the large head and big booty just rolled himself over, back to front (to his knees actually) TWICE in an effort to reach Mr. Wonderful’s yoga blocks! Big development!
Since dropping the crib mattresses yesterday the boys did pretty well in their “new” beds. Good night of sleep, good naps. I think the transition has been harder for those of us who are short since we can barely reach them all the way down there in those cavernous cribs. But we’ll figure it out and hopefully before long the boys will be sitting up by themselves (getting themselves TO the sitting position that is) and it won’t be so far down to get them.
BIG BOY BATHS! That’s right- two boys, together, in the tub. They are really loving this new way to bathe. Now that they are sitting up it seemed like the next step. They like to splash and play with their ducks (if sucking on the ducks is considered playing) and just interacting with each other. I am always floored by how fun the *little* things are with these two.
Lincoln is completely ENAMORED with his brothers belly button. I posted the famous “hoser” pic of the boys a few posts below and even though Wyatt’s little button is shrinking each day, it still sticks out just a smidge. Lincoln likes to touch it, and push it in, and pinch it…he loves it. Wyatt doesn’t seem to mind.
Also, the boys like them some cold hard cash. Yes, that’s right. CASH. Mr. Wonderful just handed me some cash for gas and it was intercepted by the boys. They won’t let it go. I’m only hoping it doesn’t turn into shreds before I need to head up to SA to fill up my tank.
Also, talking with Miss Jenna the other day we are making plans to take the boys on a Big Adventure one afternoon a week. I need to get more comfortable getting these boys out and about on my own and I think I need to start by having a little help at first. Also, I really want to use what this city has to offer. I’m going to head over to the library once a week and check out what’s available for free museum passes each week and start from there.
So…any suggestions Minneapolis Mamas? We’re looking for cheap (or free) afternoon fun for boys under a year old. I’d love it even more if I didn’t have to pay for parking. Stroller access isn’t a must since we’ll wrap them if we can.
Thanks for jumping around with me this fine Monday! I’m going to go peel Wyatt off his brother now…seems to be a little impromptu wrestling match going on in the “nest”.
