Some days having two toddlers drives me nuts, but I can't imagine life without them. They do some pretty adorable things sometimes that makes my heart feel like it's going to burst with love.
We had a busy weekend and so the boys didn't get a nap either day. (They were surprisingly well behaved though.) Saturday we spent over at John's parents getting caught up on laundry. The boys really enjoy going over and spending time with Nama and Papa. Sunday we spent the day running errands and grocery shopping. We stopped by the toy store, saw one of our good friends, and left with more toys than we came in with. The highlight of the day was going to the pet store and picking out more fish for our new fish tank. The boys love it!
We got home and the plan was to have an early dinner then put the boys to bed extra early. Poor Oliver was so tired that at dinner he drank all his milk then immediately fell asleep in his high chair without actually eating dinner. So we let him nap there for awhile while I colored with Owynn. It's not terribly often that we get to spend one on one time with them. At about 8:30pm we started getting them ready for bed. As soon as I put on Owynn's jammies he immediately fell asleep on my lap. And not just kind of asleep, the kiddo was totally out. So we put him to bed and spent some time playing with now wide awake Oliver. Play time didn't last long though, Oliver was upset that Owynn was asleep in bed and he was gated out of their room. Finally Oliver got his point across that although he wasn't tired or ready for bed yet he wanted his jammies on and to be put in his room too. He was much happier playing quietly (you know for a 2 year old) in his room while Owynn slept, than to play with us in the living room and watch cartoons. We gave him strict instructions not to wake up his brother, and he didn't. He can be such a sweetheart. I can't get over how much the two of them love each other so much.
Right now it's nap time, Owynn is sound asleep and Oliver is just happily playing in their room. Satisfied because he is with his brother. He is usually the one who ends up crawling into bed with his brother at night too. Every once in awhile he'll open the door just to make sure we are still out here.
