The boys have been really funny lately and are interacting more and more every day. I just LOVE watching them play together. Early on a doctor asked me who I thought was the leader of the two and he said he found that the first born often leads the duo. And crazy as that may sound, right now Dylan, my first born, seems to be playing the "big brother" role. He is so good about sharing with Carter. He'll take two sippy cups or two toys or two ornaments off the tree and bring one to Carter. A couple times when Carter has been upset, he has been giving him a pacifier. Altough he does bring Carter things, sometimes he takes something Carter is interested in and then he will run from Carter, then turn and laugh as Carter chases him.
The boys have been really into playing with the curtains lately.
We did it, we survived nine days in Iowa without ANY trips to the hospital, doctor's offices, or any major illnesses. We even managed to have pretty good traveling conditions given that Iowa and Minnesota were hit pretty hard with snow and ice.
Dylan did split his lip two times and Stella threw up once, taking one for the team (THANKS STELLA). Otherwise we had a GREAT trip and we are having a hard time getting back into the everyday routine after a week off of work. I have been really missing the boys this week too, I was spoiled getting to be with them all week.
I'm trying to catch up on posts, I took several pictures last week, so get ready for picture a picture overload in the next few days.
Dylan has been sitting in corners a lot lately! Not sure why, maybe he is giving himself a timeout since he is always getting into trouble.
I have decided to rename my children Disco Dylan and Linus. Dylan just LOVES music and loves to dance! We got them this sit & spin for Christmas and if you push the button on the top it plays music. So Dylan has been carrying this thing around the house constantly pushing the button and dancing. I think we need to find him some type of baby boom box as this is a little awkward and heavy for a little guy to carry around.
Carter likes to dance too, but what he REALLY likes is his BLANKET. This kid carries a blanket with him ALL the time! I don't mind as long as it keeps him smiling.

They even get under the rug!
One of my grandpa's best friends, "Santa Claus", was so kind to come up to my parents house to surprise all the kids. Yes, his friends really call him Santa Claus because of his long white beard. He plays Santa in December and Uncle Sam in July.
The boys weren't so sure what to think. Dylan seemed to think he was pretty cool, while Carter snuggled up to my mom.
