July 27, 2014 Growing Pains :-)

"A" is SUCH a good big brother. He is sweet to his baby sister. Oh my word, I am so blessed! I love to hear his voice change when he talks to her. He's super-protective. When I'm walking out the door, I will put her carseat down on the couch and go pick up my purse and bags and open the door. He will immediately start in about "baby, babee babee"; I think he thinks I am leaving her. When have I ever? Anyway it's SUPER cute but a bit bossy. :-) We have named him the family manager, since He likes to boss and manage the family. "Sit there." "Food." "Play." He likes to tell us what to do, where to do it and how to do it, but because he is so chatty, his verbal skills are developing quite nicely. 

He has been learning how to play peek-a-boo with sister and he even tries to cover her eyes with his hand. Unfortunately, it ends up being a slap to her eyes but he is learning to be gentle and she doesn't seem to mind. She loves her big brother. She smiles at him and loves him. 

The other day, daddy was tickling and playing with him and so when daddy came after him to tickle him, he immediately covered up his eyes, so "daddy couldn't see him". :-) It doesn't work that way of course but it was soooooo cute! I love to see my big boy grow up. Love being a mom. :-)

July 24, 2014 - Hide and Se-Scary Mommy

This story is actually about my husband, though "A" had a huge part to play in it. :-) Jer loves to play Hide and Seek with "A". He will yell "A's" name and then go hide. Well, I had heard him calling "A's" name but didn't think much about it. I went into my room and saw that I had not put my shirt away. So I picked it up, walked over to the closet to hang it up and opened the door. There in my closet was my husband crouching down ready to surprise my son. 

My first thought was, "There is a man in my closet." My second thought was "THERE IS A MAN IN MY CLOSET. My heart dropped like a sink hole. Thus, I had a late reaction scream. AHHHHHHHH! When I realized it was husband a few seconds after my first thought, I started beating him with my shirt. :-)

He just laughed. "I didn't mean to scare you, honey." Well you did! Looking back, it was pretty funny, but don't tell him I said that :-) Those boys are going to give me a heart attack. :-)
