We are calling Hutson “Zoro” because he takes chalk and marks his “H” everywhere. It’s on the house, tables, floor, walls. Hutson was here!

When Hutson is around loud anything he says “too loud” and cups his hands over his ears. It’s really cute.

Boden is going to bed so easily now. We read a couple of books and then its a kiss and good night. He still wants to sleep in Dave’s bed with the side light on but doesn’t come running into our room. If Hutson runs into his room, Boden comes into our room to tell us, “Mom, Hutson is coming in my room!”

The other morning when we woke up, Tim and I were getting ready and realized it was really quiet. Usually by 7am both of the boys are running around our room. Boden came strolling in and I said let’s go get Hutson. We went to his bed and he wasn’t there. We figured he was downstairs. We went downstairs and he wasn’t there. We started getting nervous. We were shouting, “Hutson, where are you?” Boden was shouting too. Tim went outside. I looked in every closet and finally looked under our bed. Tucked way underneath, was Hutson. Gosh he scared us. He had a big smile on this face.

When Hutson goes to bed at night, he always wants a “snuggle”. We lay our head on his chest and when it’s time to go and we raise our heads, he pushes our head down with his index finger and says “head down!” Quite bossy this little Hutson of ours.

Boden and Hutson love doing pull ups with Dad. Boden can do 15 and Hutson 10. Strong little boys. They also do Yoga with Dad. They get the matts out and follow the video.

The boys got new “green” shoes and call them their fast shoes. They love getting new shoes.

Tim and Boden were painting today and Boden says “I like painting with you dad, I love you.”

Tonight, we took the kids over to Nana and Bopa and grandma was there. Hutson saw grandma and ran into Tim’s arms and said, I’m scared!


Hutson continues to be a yo-yo at bed time.  He’s up, then down, then up and down again.  Earlier last week, he did this until 12.30…much to the annoyance of mom and dad.  But he makes up for it at 6am when he stumbles into mom and dad’s bed and wants to snuggle for 30 minutes.  Hutson has started to pee standing up.  He insists.  I think it’s because he watches his brother.  

Boden is very helpful with giving Hutson directions.  Hutson…put your bowl in the sink is his favorite command.  Boden has been very good about going to bed after bath time.  He often yells at Hutson, telling him to “be Quiet…I’m trying to sleep”.  But that does not phase Hutson.  

We all went to Kruger Farms on Sovie’s Island.  This is a Thursday evening festival.  Hay rides, farm animals,  berry picking, music and picnics.  Great fun.  We met Aven and his mom.  So much fun, we are going again next Thursday.  On Saturday, we went to the Clark Co. fair.  The boys had fun checking our the fire trucks and other heavy duty trucks.  While walking around the barns, Hutson walked up behind a cow and the cow proceeded to lift up his tail and go poop.  Hutson turns to us and says “cow’s poop in the toilet”.  We had fun riding the cars, trains and airplane rides.  Today, we went to wine country and went wine tasting with nana and bapa.  The boys had fun playing soccer in the field.  We also went to Everett’s house for a pool party.  Hutson swam and Bode did the slip and slide…they both did the zip line.
