Nap Time

Dawson was having a hard time going down for his afternoon nap, I tucked him in bed and read him some stories and he just kept coming out. I was in my bedroom with Jordan when I heard something, sure enough Dawson was trying to sneak downstairs to play, I told him to get in bed and take a nap but still he came out again. Finally he decided to just stay in his room, I could still hear him playing but I figured at least he was in his room. A little while later my mom and sister came over to say hi, they peeked into Dawson's room to see if he was awake and this is what they found...

Fast asleep...

The big black thing next to his head is an old football helmet that sits on his nightstand, apparently he was playing with it. Under his blanket is a book that we were reading, that looks real comfortable ;)

And in Jordan news... this is how much he enjoyed eating rice cereal for the first time last week

He also got a little hair cut but his hair is so light that it doesn't show up that well in a photo, but he looks like a stud!

Spring has Sprung

Well, I guess it isn't really spring officially until tomorrow but the weather here has been so nice! For the first time last fall Dave and I planted some bulbs, having never done this before we didn't really know what we were doing! With all the warm weather lately I was checking out the yard, and look what I came across....
our flowers are coming up! I was so excited I had to take a picture! First I was excited that we planted the bulbs correctly and that they are actually growing and second I was excited that if these flowers are coming up that means winter is coming to an end. I can't wait for warmer weather!!

Please disregard the weeds that have sprung along side the flowers, I didn't spend that much time outside ;)

Brotherly Love

When Jordan was born and Dawson came to the hospital to meet him, he didn’t really think much of his brother. If fact he didn’t like that I was holding Jordan and didn’t even want to be in the same room as Jordan and I! So needless to say I was a little nervous about what it was going to be like when we got home. Now there is SO much love, almost too much! Whenever I put Jordan down for his morning nap Dawson asks where the baby went, he will run around the house shouting “baby! baby!” until he finds him and will hop up on the crib and say “hi baby!”. Of course this will wake Jordan up, so I have to threaten him with time out whenever he starts looking for his brother. Lately I have been putting a gate in front of Jordan’s room when he takes a nap. (caught in the act!)
Dawson loves to share things with his brother also, many times I will be taking Jordan out of his car seat and find some of Dawson’s cars in there with Jordan. Dawson also tries to share his sippy cups and food with Jordan, which is all a little scary right now but I am hoping it will last as they get older. When we took Dawson to the Jazz game for his birthday it was the first time we left Jordan without Dawson, when we dropped Jordan off at my parents house and got back in the car the first thing Dawson did was look over at where Jordan normally sits and asked “where’d the baby go?” I had to explain that the baby got to stay and play with grandma and he got to go to a basketball game. I love that he misses his brother when he leaves him :) Any sound that Jordan makes Dawson will copy and laugh at, he thinks that Jordan is so funny. Jordan is also very entertained by Dawson! If I am making dinner and Jordan starts to cry I just tell Dawson to go talk to Jordan. Dawson will start to play with him and calm him right down, Dawson has been such a good help with his brother…most the time. When Dawson feels like he needs your full attention he will point to Jordan’s chair and tell you to put him down, but what more can you expect from a two year old. I love my little boys so much and I love to watch them grow and interact together!
