Valentine's fun

In preparation for some Valentine's Day cards from Things 1 and 2 I set up two different backdrops that I used for their pictures which you can see at my photo site. The day that I set up for Thing 2's pictures was the day that I drove for preschool and I hadn't torn down yet. Thing 1 and his friend wanted their pictures taken and I let them set up pretty much any way they wanted because I wanted them to be themselves. These are the pictures I got. 

Thing 2 had so much more fun with his big brother and friend. Thing 1 loved having Thing 2 on his back for the pictures. I think we'll have to try it again sometime. 

More pictures to come on my photo blog of Thing 2's Valentine shoot.

The new year

I'm going to do better about this, just be patient with me. At least I'm posting once a month. Having Thing 1 attend preschool is making a little easier to post, but at the same time I think of things that need to be done while he's gone. And Thing 2 is of course very demanding. So here's some fun stuff from January. 

Things 1 and 2 are awesome friends. Thing 1 was making his bed and laid down on it and Thing 2 decided to join him. They adore each other. Yes, they get frustrated, upset and angry at each other, but you can see how much fun they have together. 

Thing 2 copycat's Thing 1 regularly, and Thing 1 loves it. Especially when they sit back against a wall. 

 Thing 2 is even worse with technology than his big brother. I had left my laptop on the table and he climbed right up to it and started punching buttons. I know you can't see it in this picture, but he was even kicking and swinging his little legs just having a ball.

I didn't quite get into the bathroom in time, but originally his chin was down on his hands on the side of the tub. He's pretty cute.

Thing 1 has a really good friend in the neighborhood and they are at one house of the other at least twice a week for a good portion of the day. As their moms we really enjoy it because they entertain each other and we're able to get a few things done.  One day I went in the basement and I couldn't find them at first sight. I found them covered in stuffed animals (or "pets" as they call them) on a big bean bag.

Until they poked their heads out, they weren't visible. The little hams!
