Splash Park

Today we went to a new park - a splash park! It was SO much fun! Water kept squirting out of these holes in the ground. I thought it was awesome right away and as soon as we were all gooped up with sunscreen I was off to explore!

Aidan, however, was very cautious. I had to show him how much fun it was.
Slowly, he ventured out and started having some fun with me.
It didn't take long for him to fall in love with the splash park, too!

We had so much fun and hope to go back again soon!
Love, Patrick

A boy and his dog

I've discovered a little puppy in one of my toy buckets and I'm in love with him! I'm a great snuggler and love to give him kisses!

He's also a great distraction when Brittany is chasing me down to get me dressed, but don't tell her that! :)

Love, Patrick

We are looking particularly cute in our 4th of July outfits from Nana today, so we decided to have a photo shoot. Enjoy!

Gotta end it with a kiss!

17 Months!

Holy cow! Today the boyz are 17 months old! Here's the quick look at what they're up to:

(Apparently 17 month olds don't like sitting still and having their picture taken)

(So what was a girl to do? Bribe them of course! Patrick's still not feeling it yet, though...)

You both are:
  • Down to one nap a day
  • Done with nuks! 
  • LOVE books and reading, both with other people and alone
  • Really enjoying songs with actions, especially Wheels on the Bus, Tick Tock, and Itsy Bitsy Spider
  • Just starting to pretend. You love the pretend to eat the food in your little kitchen downstairs
  • VERY attached! If Mom and Dad are around, you only want them, and if they're not there, I'm the substitute, but if someone else comes near you or we look like we are going to leave you are NOT okay with it!
  • Fascinated with how I cook. You love for me to show you the fruits and veggies I'm going to cut up and feed you, or salt the water when we're cooking pasta
(Really, have you ever met a bigger ham?! He didn't want to pose for pictures together, but on his own he was all about smiling for the camera!)

You are:
  • WALKING!! We are all so proud of you, and you LOVE the attention and praise we give you when you take off! 
  • Still in love with everything that has buttons, especially if they make noise
  • A ham! When we go to play group, you pick out a skinny blonde (just like your mama!) and climb on on their lap and flirt! It's a different mom every week, and you just work the room! Every one loves little blue eyed P!
  • In love with talking on the phone. If someone calls during the day, you insist on talking to them. You'll put just about any toy up to your ear and pretend to be chatting away!
(Such a little monkey! You were not going to sit still - until I bribed you of course!)

You are:
  • Still a big fan of balls. You love to say "ball" and you are way too good at throwing one across the room! You amaze me when we're at baby gym and you throw much farther than all the other kids who are older than you! Some days I think we should call the Twins recruiters already!
  • In love with trucks and airplanes, and really anything with wheels. You are definitely all boy!
  • Trying SO hard to climb on everything. You aren't quite tall enough to be able to pull yourself up on everything yet, but you are so close!
  • A great shoe fetcher! Every day when your Mom and Dad come home, you head towards the door and get me my shoes. You are a great little helper and you are so cute!
Happy 17 Months boyz! I love you so much!!

Here's the newest walker in town at work!

It's a bird! It's a plane!

No! It's Super Aidan!

He's faster than a hungry Patrick eating bananas.
His plastic doughnuts of furry will stop even the most hardened criminal.
Be on the look out, evil doers. You never know when Super Aidan might be lurking around the corner!

How much is that baby in the mirror?

Drum Roll Please...

I'm sorry, that's not loud enough. Maybe you should clap, too.

I still need more! Don't you people know what a big deal this is?!

That's better! Now watch me go!!

I CAN WALK!!! See, I told you all the praise was necessary! :) I've been showing off all weekend and especially love performing for a crowd!

Love, Walking Patrick
