Anderson and Mommy.
Jake and Daddy.
The babies were goofing around before bed.
We met up with our friends, Jason, Heather, and Baby Ashley yesterday for dinner. The babies had fun interacting and talking to one another. Anderson managed to make Ashley cry in the first 10 minutes of seeing eachother. He grabbed for her face like he does so often with Jake but she wasn't used to another baby attacking her. It doesn't phase Jake one bit, he is used to loving cat scratches all over his face and neck. At one point Jake put his arm around Ashley and leaned over to give her a wet slobbery kiss on the cheek. It was very endearing to watch the babies size eachother up.
Okay, I take that back. He does get pretty serious about his ice cubes in the mesh bag.

Anderson and Jake have become pretty serious about their playing. Today they played pots and pans for the first time. My mom used to always give me kitchen stuff to play with and it was fun to watch the boys do the same. They were more interested in eating than cooking as you can see from the pictures.
Anderson showing off using only one hand. We're not sure how he pulled that off since he never holds his own bottle.
So we had a little problem with the blog. It was infiltrated by someone (with twins) we don't know who apparently felt she had really gotten to know me through the blog. I'm not sure what her motivation was or why she felt compelled to write such things but it makes me uncomfortable to have people like that reading about the boys and getting a little glimpse into our lives. Before the boys were here I used the blog to write about my personal feelings and I rarely do that now because for the most part all I ever care to do is to obsess over them. But on the occasion I do feel like making my own personal statements I think I should be able to do so without some crazy "telling me like it is". If you don't like what I have to say then you shouldn't read the blog or you always have the option to talk behind my back :).
I am grateful that the majority of those who read the blog are great people that leave encouraging and loving comments for our family. I appreciate the interest you have in the boys, its means so much to Kevin and I.
Anderson and Jake played so nicely together today. They spent at least 15 minutes (that's like 2 hours in baby time) sharing blocks, eating them and taking them away from one another. No one shows themselves yet as the aggressor, both little guys are pretty easy going. Jake did a little bit of shrieking at the end but that was because he couldn't reach the block he wanted.

Anderson and Jake had a busy weekend. On Friday we went to the McBride's house for dinner and then on a walking trip to get ice cream. Grant and Claire both took turns pushing the stroller and the cousins all had fun hanging out. Anderson and Jake just stare in awe of their big cousins and they love the attention from Grant and Claire.
