Last week was a busy one for us, but mostly of our own doing, trying to fit in some fun activities and plenty of outside play time.
Houston weather will be hot before we know it, so we are spending as much time as possible at the park, on walks, at the zoo, etc. while the weather has been so fabulous. If we aren't out and about enjoying the weather, I love that I can just open the backdoor and the kids can play in or out as they please. The air is perfect and the pesky mosquitos haven't started eating us yet.
We started the week with a visit to the pedi where Jacob got an all clear on his ears. Unfortunately, I suspect a problem has developed again.
Jacob has made quite the turnaround in his behavior over the past few weeks. A new discipline method and a little more maturity has made him quite the pleasant kid lately. We still have our struggles and tough moments, but the good times far outweigh the rough ones, which is wonderful. He and Luke are at such wonderful ages right now - I just want to freeze time!
Luke has really turned into quite the talker - non stop. He's always liked to talk, but now everything is done at full volume, and all the time, whether you respond or not. He has so many words, it really is amazing...I can definitely tell he is listening to us all.
It is adorable to hear how he says so many words. The "d" sound starts many words (incorrectly) but we know what he is saying. In addition to the letters A, B, C, and D (which he correctly identifies about half of the time) he knows L (for Luke) and J (for Jacob). Growing up!
Here are the pictures from the week.
