They will sit and color together, play blocks or cars together, and of course, run around and "play running" together. I love seeing them become little friends!
Just a few pictures from Madame Toussaud's wax museum in DC. These are for Nana...
I seriously think I am going to frame this one and give it to her. We all know how she feels about Obama... "and that one thinks she's Jackie Onaissis..." Oh, Nana...
I know there are so many cute things the kids are saying and doing that I want to share... I just forget them when I have time to type it out! Just a few highlights...
Jack and Ben love to look out the window and see squirrels. Unfortunately, they think I have some control over the squirrels and when there are none, they yell, "Find squirrels, Mommy!"
In the tub, Jack and Ben were giving one another high-fives. When Ben would stop, Jack would lean in and say, "More fives, Ben?" And Ben would happily oblige.
When Jack falls down, Ben runs over and says, "You ok, Jackie?" Jack says, "Yeah, Ben."
Jack woke up this morning and was jumping up and down in his bed yelling, "See Lily? See Lily?" I guess he misses his cousin!
Mairead went on her first field trip last week to see a play. She was able to tell us some details of the play and seemed very excited about it.
When Jack or Ben cries, Mairead offers them a toy or a drink and says, "there you go."
When my dad gets home from work, Mairead has learned to ask, "Hi Grampy, how was work?"
There are so many more sweet moments- I wish I could remember them all and hold on to them forever... they are already growing up too quickly!
