Sharing is Caring

Oct. 18th, 2011

Tonight, Q was feeding Mason (8 months old) his cereal, and Q opened his mouth like he wanted some and Mason took his spoon and put it in Q's mouth. I later came home and Mason was feeding Boyd and Quentin, then I jumped in and asked, "Can I have a bite?" and Mason put the spoon in my mouth, too! I love that he loves to share! He is such a sweet little guy, and his brother really loves that he is interacting with him. Boyd gets soooo excited at any little thing that Mason does. Boyd loves that his brother is learning new things and understanding a little more each day.

Boyd's Quotes to Remember!

Oct. 17th, 2011

Here are just a few of Boyd's famous quotes at 2 and 3 years old:

While driving and making a quick turn onto Monterey Street Boyd said, "Mom, we won!" He thought we were in a race and beat the other cars. (3 years)

While getting Boyd ready to go outside he said, "Sandals, teeth brushed, and MEAN guys!" Just part of getting ready in Boyd's eyes. (3 years old)

After the Luau, I asked Boyd what his favorite part was and he said, "The pretty dresses on their bottoms (the dancers' skirts)!" (2 years old)

Boyd just told me that he needs an oil change and he has to go bye bye to do it--this is instead of a diaper change! Yikes! Not sure the oil change will fix the messy diaper.
(2 years old)

Boyd (my 2 year old) scared me this morning, when I woke up to him standing over me in my bed at 4:30 in the morning asking me, "Mom, I'm hungry, can I have some pizza?!" I guess he liked the pizza I made last night for dinner, enough to wake me up in the middle of the night and scare me to death!

Boyd said the prayer tonight all by himself, and included, "...please bless the COWS!" His prayers from here on out include blessing the cows. (2 years old)

Boyd's new skill at 2 years old:

Okay, so I am a little scared about Boyd's new skills on the tablet and Netflix. Today, I turned around and he had turned the tv on and started Thomas on Netflix! Two weeks ago, his uncle J taught him Angry Birds on his IPhone and Ipad. Then he came home and Quentin taught him how to do it on the Tablet. Yikes!

Mason at 8 Months Old

Mason is a newly 8 month old who just learned how to say, "Ma, Ma" among other babbling words. He is constantly talking and looking at us like, "What you don't understand me--why!!!???" He is totally adorable and loves splashing in the bath and grabbing at the bubbles and eating them. He is way excited any time he hears or sees Boyd. They are such good brothers! We feel so blessed to have two healthy, sweet, loving boys.

Mason just learned how to do the following things:
~Says, "Yay! Yay! Yay!" while clapping.
~Says, "Hi, Hi, Hi!" while waving.
~Says, "Hi, Da Da!" while waving.
~Can give high fives!
~Can sign "more" with his hands.
~Crawled for the first time on Oct. 13th, 2011. He does it here and there but not all the time. He still prefers rolling over crawling.
~Started army crawling, really fast, the day after he crawled on all fours. I guess he figured out that he is faster at that!

New words that Mason learned while vacationing down South with family, just one week shy of turning 9 months old.
~Can say, "Granpa" for Grandpa--he learned this after visiting down south with Grandpa Sanders and Grandpa Wilcox
~Can say, "Gramma" for Grandma.
~Can say, "Nana" for banana. He loves eating a banana with any meal, and if he sees one he will ask for one.

Boyd's Birthday Bash!

Boyd had a great 3rd birthday! He celebrated, celebrated, and celebrated some more! He had Grandma Wilcox and Lori Gleason come up for his Wyatt and Boyd, "Bob the Builder" Party on Saturday, Sept. 24th. Where he had the most amazing dump truck cake made by Grandma Wilcox and Daddy. Grandma and Grandpa Wilcox bought him a really cool gerbil ball for kids, clothes, and Legos--which he LOVES!
Then the following Monday, he had a birthday party with Mom, Dad, Mason and our neighbors, Randy and Linda. Where he got a jump house, trains, and a Bob the Builder movie.
The following Thursday, Mom made him dinosaur cupcakes to take to preschool. All the kids licked the frosting off the cakes and played with the toy dinosaurs. So much for making a hypo-allergenic cake--it was nasty!
