Bath Time with the Boys

IMG_0115IMG_0116

Weston’s first time taking a fun bath with his big brother Hunter. Weston was so happy to be in the tub with Hunter. He loved watching Hunter playing.

IMG_0123

I just got Weston a seat to sit in since he has out grown the baby bath tub and I don’t feel comfortable with him sitting on his on in the tub. When the seat came I was so excited to see if he would like it and he did. I think it made him feel more like Hunter.

Hunter showing Weston how the fish swims in the water. It was so cute. Hunter would tell Weston I’m a hippo then he would lay in the tub and put his face in half way and blow bubbles. This was like the best thing ever for Weston he just cracked up and then Hunter laughed even hard because Weston thought he was funny.

When the letters would come flout by Weston he would pick them up and play with then. He was also splashing the water with his hands.

Hunter demonstrated how to make a big splash in the water.

At the end Hunter thought he had to check out this seat that Weston was enjoying oh so much.

WaWa Wednesday

Lately I find myself trying to keep Weston down. Seriously what is up with this kid. He wants to walk like no tomorrow and its not long before he does. Every chance he gets he is standing, he will even use the wall to pull himself up with. You can not leave him in a room by himself on the ground this boy can not be trusted to stay on all fours. Even if you stick him in the middle of the room with nothing around he just crawls over to what he wants and gets right in it or on it. I know your thinking didn’t this happen with Hunter and Nope. Hunter was not mobile till he was about 8.5 months he crawled for no more then a 3 weeks then walked and he was a very slow crawler too. Unlike Weston who just another old Speedy Gonzales. The other day Weston kept climbing on something Brandon and I kept pulling Weston down and way, he just kept on going. Then finally Hunter came over after watching us pull Weston away many times, Weston then did it again and Hunter just grabbed Weston’s leg said no and tried to pull him away. It just cracked me up that Hunter was like let me try this.

Steady does it!

Sweet now time to focus on staying balanced.

Oh I got this now a quick smile to show my mom what she’s working with.

After I got this last photo I had to put the camera down to make sure Weston didn’t fall. When then climbed up the step to hold on to the gate. Hunter better watch out because Weston is going to give him run for his money.

Toddler Talk - Gymnastics

This was our first day at Gymnastics Class. I was really excited to to this with Hunter. I think there are good things he could get out of it but the class that we ended up in was over crowded and the kids didn’t get a lot of turns. It seemed like the teacher was having a hard time control the class too. So I changed the class to Thursday's instead of Tuesday since there is one one other kid in that class. There were definitely good and bad things about it in the end Hunter said he liked it and wanted to go again. I am hoping he will get the hang of it after a couple of weeks.

Hunter did enjoy the stuff to use in the class but he wasn’t so into sitting so much. There was a lot of stretching that they did and it was hard to keep him focused on that since there were all kinds of other fun things for him to do. He was really into trying the bars and jumping on the trampoline but not so much the foam pit. He loved running for one side of the room to the other. He was definitely giving me a work out. He loved at the end that he got to pick out stickers and then we snuck back up to play real quick before we left. I think that with switching the class he will get more one on one time and have a lot more time and fun do the class.

I will keep you all posted on what happens with the next class.

Big Bear

We took a little trip to Big Bear with Brandon’s parents and good family friend Debra , this year was our second time going. We had so much fun up there, it is always nice to get away to some where nice and quiet. It makes me think it would be nice to move to a quiet place but then your remember everything that Orange County has to offer to do and it makes it hard to image your life some where else.

While we where there we all went fishing, this was Hunter’s first time fishing. We did not put a hook on his pole being that he was a little crazy with it wiping it around all over the place. Brandon had fun helping Hunter but it definitely was a challenge teaching a 2 year old to fish on the dock. Maybe not a great idea on the dock.

Taylor spent most of the trip on the dock trying to fish. He would set his alarm at 5:30 in the am and he would be down there at 6am and wouldn’t come up till dinner or a little break. He was determined to catch fish. I think he caught a total of 5 and kept 3 of them. The first fish he caught was a catfish and then he only caught trout. When was down there with Taylor I caught one fish. So we left Big Bear with 4 trout and Taylor requested that we make them for dinner when we got home.

We also went swimming the kids had so much fun. We went every night and that was Weston’s first time and of coarse I forgot my camera in the room and realized it after we had already gotten in the pool. Having the little guys in the pool really made us want to put them into swimming lessons. Weston love the water and Hunter really wanted to swim.

Took Hunter on a walk to feed the ducks and we also found a bush filled with Lady Bugs. In the first picture it Hunter holding a leaf with a lady bug on it.

One of the days we were there we took the kids to the Zoo. Taylor didn’t want to join us because he said the moment I leave this dock the fish our going to bite. lol. Brandon and his dad went golfing so they met us at the zoo. They had lots of animals. The most amazing ones in my opinion was the wolves, Bald eagle, and snow owl. Maybe because I have never been so close to them. The deer was amazing to it came right up to the fence and we all got to touch the nose. We got to see them feed the bobcats, raccoons, eagles and bears. The zoo keepers got right in the cages to feed all the animals except the bear its was so cool to see how close they could get and touch these animals and they didn’t care.

And yes I did make the trout for dinner when we got home. The boys all ate it and I had a little taste. Not sure if Taylor will want to eat it able but I am sure he will love to fish more.
