Boden and I were at a restaurant today when he said I have to go pee. So we went to the bathroom and he did his business. Then he turns to me and said ok daddy, it’s your turn. Before I started to go, Bode said ‘you can do it daddy’… and then after he said ‘good job daddy’ and slapped me on the bum. We then walked out and he said hi to all the girls we passed. They all thought he was the cutest.
Bode also has been sharing a lot with Hutson. He gives him part of his snacks and shares toys. Not always but he is much more patient and likes to work together. Yesterday, we were planting flowers in the front yard and Bode said ‘We are working together daddy’. I like working together. Then, I was climbing a ladder and Bode said ‘be careful daddy’. So I was.
Bode is speaking spanish quite a bit. He said he has to go to the banjo. Bathroom. He also says stuff I have no idea what he means but go along with it.
In the bath, Bode looks at Elizabeth and says that ‘Hutson has a small penis.’ And that ‘Bode has a big penis’.
Boden’s continues to improve his language and speak in sentences. I think both montessori and care with Elizabeth is a big catalyst.
Hutson is walking up and down steep hills. He loves to run into the street which is a nono. He watches mom and dad to see where we are and then makes a run for the street…giggling until he’s caught.
Hutson now has two more molars. He got his first lower right on May 2nd. He picked up his second upper right molar on May tuesday May 14 and the third lower left on Thursday May 16th. He was very drooly but not too fussy. One night he had trouble sleeping but other thantha
Last night, Hutson was jumping off the bottom step. Each time you could see his confidence grow. He laughed and clapped each time and he got more excited after each turn. Bode wasn’t going to miss out and clapped for Hutson as well. Bode then started doing summersaults at the same time.
You can see that Hutson immitates Boden in almost every way. Yesterday, Hutson saw Bode jumping up and down so Hutson tried. Then he was spinning around so Hutson tried as well. You can see Hut watching and learning from Bode. Even the things we don’t want him to mimmick…he absorbs what he sees.
We’ve had a great spring so far and the boys love playing outside and in the water. Both love the parks and having picnics. They’ve been able to spend a lot of time in nature, getting dirty, playing in the gardens, riding bikes and walking in the neighborhood. Henry, Sam and Dakota are the new friends and neighbors. Michelle, Mia, Jenn and Rachel are the neighborhood moms keeping an eye out on the boys while they play.
