I like to refer to Ethan as my "little helper", he is always bringing me a little piece of something he found on the floor, whether it be a piece of cracker or a scrap of paper, for me to throw out. He also loves to get Dylan's blanket or binky for him or collect Caleb's trains when it is time to pick up toys. Lets just hope he is always so eager to keep things clean and neat!!
So as you know Caleb recently turned three, I had been semi prepared for this "change" by experienced Mothers when they would tell me, three is so much harder than two, but, I thought how is that possible. Oh, it is!!!!! But, at the same time it is a GREAT age!! His brain is like a little sponge and he absorbs everything. The problem I am finding with this is he is FULL of questions, like all day and all night long. I would think he would would loose his voice at some point, but, no he just goes on and on and on. One of the great things about it is the words that come out of his mouth crack me up sometimes. The other day I was making a roast, lost track of time, forgot to set the timer and well, you know what that means (yes, burnt roast). So, Caleb asks me "what is that Mommy", "it is burnt roast Caleb" (in a upset voice, because that was dinner), he looks up at me and says "oh Mommy, that is so yummy, that is my favvvooorite", he just knows how to brighten my day!! Needless to say I was able to "save" the roast and when we ate it he did love it!
Two boys and a girl is a frequent question I receive when out and about and someone is admiring my BOYS!! I have always thought that I knew who it was they were confusing for a girl but, tonight while snapping a few shots of the boys before bed, I think it is obvious, poor Dylan, I guess I better make sure he is in blue all the time!!
