Big Hill

Boden and Hutson love their plasma scooters.  We take them outside and upto the edge of the driveway and then roll down the hill.  Hutson calls it ‘Big Hill’.  Yesterday, we were riding the scooters and decided to have a picnic in the garage.  Hutson grabbed a sandwich and brought it over to Bode and said ‘here you go’.  Eat your sandwich.  They are building a loft in Hutson’s school.  When asked about the loft, Hutson replied ‘new high’.  Hutson has been struggling at drop offs at school.  Luckily, he will let Jessica hold him while we leave.  Bode has been confident, needing only a hug before running off.

We watched ‘Cars’ last Saturday night.  Boden loves race cars now and is running around the house saying that he’s lightning mcqueen.  We had some friends over last Sunday and they had three kids.  Boden loved hanging out with the boys.  He followed Chase and Reece around for 2 hours playing ball, hide and seek as well as eating what they ate.  Boden helped dad cut his hair on Monday.  On Wednesday, Boden said, let’s cut your hair again.  I said it looks good.  Boden’s response was, ‘it’s ok.  It’s not perfect.’


Daddy asked Hutson for a kiss and Hutson puckered up and then turned dad’s head to the side, said cheek and then kissed his cheek. Hutson is now counting to 10, singing a number of different songs.  Soccer practice started today for Hutson.  First class.  He really enjoyed being out and kicking the ball.  He played with 7 other kids is a chaotic 30 minutes of running, tripping and kicking.  Potty training continues with Hutson.  He still will not go to the potty by himself.  He will go tinkle if put on the toilet.  But he will hide before going poo and then once done, he’ll say ‘big poo…big poo’.  Will be nice when he is fully potty trained.    Hutson was startled the other day ran over to dad and said…I’m scared, I’m scared.  

Soccer practice started to day for Boden as well.  He chose not to participate until the last two minutes for stamp on the hands.   Much like swimming lessons, we’ll try again next week.  Boden has been very caring with Hutson lately.  He’s been bringing him his snuggly, giving him his milk and sharing his toys.  Today, Bapa visited and Boden said, do you want some water and then poured him a glass.  What a good host.  Bode has some new shoes and he loves to wear them and says…look how fast I can run.   Bode’s been getting dressed by himself in the morning which is a big help.  He also puts his jammies on at night.   Boden’s watched Frozen and Cars.  He now is in love with the frozen queen and loves Lightning McQueen.
