Boys will be boys.

I've made it officially half way through this week. The mornings have been rough because Cody has started coming in our room between 6 and 6:30 a.m. and doing everything he can to irritate us and wake us up. Usually this results in me feeling outraged before I even sit up in the morning and does not make for a positive start to the day. He is good at waking everyone else up too. I have been very tired this week and have been battling migraines, but I am making it through.

Jamie is determined to test my sanity and push me to my very limits. From the moment he gets up in the morning to the moment he is put back in his crib to nap or at bedtime he is on one continual mission to get into everything imaginable. Twice this week I have caught him wearing Cody's ice skates in the house, with no guards on them. Where he found them, I do not know. Fortunately, he was crawling both times so the blades did not get the opportunity to cut the flooring up. I'm sure he will find another chance. He dumps bins of clothing that I have organized in the closets on every possible occasion (which usually amounts to more than once a day) and then finds uses for the bins such as standing on them to reach inside of cupboards that are off limits. He is something like a torpedo, and is for the most part unstoppable. He does this all with a level of skill that is probably unrivaled anywhere, and he manages to maintain such cuteness throughout that it is often hard to keep a straight face...when I'm not pulling my hair out.

Micah has decided that he can't stand to be left behind another minute, so he is also honing his skills. He has spent the last two days crawling up to things and then pulling up into a standing position. Then he finds his balance and lets go. He stands for about one second and then falls over backwards onto his bum, sometimes all the way onto his back. Today he used the laundry rack and pulled it over on top of himself. Oh joy. I was sitting right there, so I caught it before they both hit the ground. He scared himself, but not badly enough to stop his craziness.

Anyway, that's all the time I have today for updates. I am too tired to continue, and Micah is crying now anyway so I must go feed him. I will try to do at least one more post this week if I can. Seems like I'm getting more busy now instead of less. How did that happen?

Haha! The title says it all! Life as the Mom of boys will never have a dull moment...or a spare moment! The thing about your blog is - I know from personal experience that you don't even have to make any of it up! Love it!
