With the threat of bad weather several days this week, our schedule was pretty low key. We did manage to hit the gym everyday, Jacob went to his first gymnastics class, and we made a trip to the zoo.
Saturday was Jacob's last T-ball game for the year.
We also had lots of fun at home together. Jacob has been "into" his TAG reader system for the last couple of months and enjoys "reading" by himself. He and Luke have also found a common interest - cars, and love to "play cars" if not together, then alongside each other. No surface in the house is immune to becoming a parking lot or road for cars. Jacob also loves getting to play games with me like Candyland, Memory, Chutes & Ladders, etc. Definitely will add to his collection for his birthday.
We have hit the "same" factor in the house. What one boy has or does, the other has to have or do. I've had to catch myself before doing or giving something to one of the other knowing the other boy will be expecting the same. Fun times. This trend has also included eating arrangements. Luke has been fighting his highchair for a few weeks now, but we've kept him in it. I finally decided to give in this week and he now sits in a booster at the table like Jacob.
Just like convincing Jacob that he really didn't need Pull-Ups at night took some time, we finally convinced him this weekend that he didn't need his bed rails anymore. He had been fighting us taking them away, so we didn't push it. But after having to change his bed twice this week from accidents, I was tired of reaching over the bed rails, so we took them away. He has done great and really hasn't argued. The day we took them down though, he was a little upset and said "I don't want to be 4, I just want to be 3." I guess I have been using the "you don't need this or you shouldn't do that, or you can do this all by yourself you are almost 4" a bit too much...With Father's Day is just a week away, I had to throw in a couple pictures of the boys with their Daddy.
Here are the rest of the pictures for the week.
