Seems like so much has been going on lately. We went to Grayson's 2 year check up. He weighs 23 lbs 13 ozs and is 33 inches in height. He is in the 15th percentile which is the highest he has ever been. So that is good. Braden is in the 13th percentile for his age. Grayson is doing really good and has no issues except for his lack of speech. However, I will say he is picking up his chatter and loves counting and his abc's. He may not say them properly but he knows his alphabet (letter sounds mostly but a few actual letters) and he can count to 10.
We met with Braden's teacher to sign paperwork for his summer therapy services. Which by the way are on Weds. Which means every other week Braden will be in therapy practically all day. I hope he can handle it. I am going to have to put the crack down on him with the TV. Which is awful because as of now we have reduced it considerably yet he doesn't seem to want to participate in much. It's really hard to think what he will do if I cut him off completely let alone what it will do to me. I won't get anything done. He isn't like Grayson. Grayson loves being given activities. But Braden only wants to do big people stuff. So I guess he is going to have to help me clean house and do laundry. He actually loves helping swiffer the floors. The other day he helped make his lunch. He should do good.
This weekend we went to Steamboat bills for dinner and took the boys. They did excellent. They have been super when we go out and when I need to shop. Braden does really well staying with me and loves to push Grayson's stroller. It is great. Anyway, they liked being at the resturaunt. We also went fishing and I have included some pics. Braden loved it but Grayson wanted to get into trouble so I bribed him with M&M's so he would be good. Grayson wanted to jump off the platform and so I had to keep him away from the edge. Braden did really well and listened to us when we told him to stay away from the water. Until we went out to the lake and the waves were hitting the shore. Then Braden decided it was ok to just walk out into the lake. lol But that was ok... he never moves fast enough to get into real trouble. Or at least not yet. Stephen caught several small fish and enjoyed showing them to the boys. Braden had alot of interest and we think he will enjoy going with just his Daddy sometimes. Stephen told Braden he might get to go to Lowes sometimes with him now too. :-) Later we had pool time and water table fun in the back yard. Aunt Leslie has a sandbox on the way so that will be exciting and something new for outdoor fun. We also played with some sidewalk chalk and Grayson took right to it but Braden was only semi interested. I am sure several more times is all it will take before he likes it too.
A few other things the boy have been up to are activities I found off pinterest. Like letter matching and the pipe cleaner color matching. Both really like these two activities. They have also started wrestling each other and they both seem to like doing that as well. We have only had a few instances of them being mean with it but most of the time its just fun. The reason B has his shirt off in all the wrestling pics is because he finally knows how to take it off himself and actually wants too. Now that it is hot he especially likes his shirt off. It's fun now but wait till school. ha ha...
Hope everyone enjoys the pics...
