Movie Monday: Yes, We Can! Edition (and Boys Update)
Our little future politician?
Big Barack Obama supporter?
No, just a big Bob the Builder Fan.
I didn't realize Barack Obama stole his campaign slogan from Bob the Builder.
J's really gotten into Bob the Builder ever since we got a Halloween movie with Bob the Builder in it. J is so funny. He has grown up so much in the last month. He is turning into such a little man. His new passion is helping B out around the house. He and B had a blast today hanging pictures. B let J help him drill a hole for a wall anchor and J's been wanting to make holes in the wall ever since. He even woke up from his nap calling for his daddy because he wanted to do more work. After naptime, J helped B fix two toilets. He was actually using a screwdriver to put the screws in and did a great job!
J has started singing songs and saying nursery rhymes (and his bedtime prayers). His favorites are Baa Baa Black Sheep and Itsy Bitsy Spider. He's gotten really good at blowing bubbles. J loves to sing and dance and his two latest discoveries are Sam Cooke and Chuck Berry. He is really into making things with paper; he loves to do the gluing and is starting to learn to cut. J has also learned to pull his chair up to things so he can climb up and get to things he's not supposed to get to. Well, I'm not thrilled with that skill, but he's really proud of himself when he does it.
N is also growing up in leaps and bounds. He is sitting up pretty well now. He continues to travel by rolling, scooting backwards, and turning in a circle. N even sometimes gets up on both knees with his hands up like he's going to crawl. He loves his exersaucer and still thinks J is hilarious! N also has the top edge of his first tooth poking through. My baby is almost 6 months old. I can't believe it!
N is doing great with his physical therapy for his Torticollis; in fact, he only has to go every other week now. His head is still somewhat misshapen so we are trying to decide if we need to do the helmet thing or not. I'd rather not, but I want to make sure we make the right decision. There is only a limited window of opportunity to do it. I don't want to not do it and then have N be upset by his head shape when he is older and it too late to do anything about it. Will keep you posted on that one.
That's all for now. My mom and dad arrive tomorrow. Can't wait! Have a happy Monday and a great week!
