Basically, I don't know how to stop taking pictures of them every month. Oh well. I don't hear too many complaints. Look at this little guy. I think he just looks so big with his feet touching the floor--such a little boy! I mean, don't get me wrong, he's a tiny guy, but he's getting bigger as he often reminds me.
I'm not sure where Braden's B is in these pictures... Finley sure wouldn't let go of his F. Last month he wouldn't let go of his Cars book and this month it was a wooden spoon. I love how he picks out things that he just needs to carry around with him all day.
Still no walking from Braden--he'll occasionally let go of what he's standing with and stand alone for a bit... but no walking. Any day now...
Braden is still taking two naps a day and is generally such a sweet baby. The thumb sucking that used to only occur when I picked him up also now happens when he's holding his giraffe, which is so so sweet. He's much cuddlier than Finley ever was. He's also a better eater than Finley ever was--I routinely tell Finely if he doesn't eat his dinner I'm going to give it to Braden and Braden is going to get bigger than him. Finley doesn't seem to mind at all.
This is what happens with I told Finley to get close to Braden and put his head right next to him. I guess he did what I asked... I'm totally taking suggestions on how to get Finley to stop clobbering Braden. A good deal of the time he asks me before he does anything ("Mama, can I bam Braden?") or asks me to move him when he's in his way. But sometimes he goes ahead and pushes him over or smacks him. BOYS.
I love listening to the boys on the monitor before they take naps--it generally consists of Finley repeating some silly phrase to Braden and massive giggles from both of them. It's so fun to watch them become friends. Friends who beat each other up, but still friends.
