And so it begins...

Nicholas has definitely entered toddlerhood. I have witnessed his first kicking and screaming tantrum. I did the awful thing of bringing him inside when he wanted to play outside some more. I had to bring him in because the other two needed to go potty (well, Ella really - Benjamin still doesn't care about having a wet butt or messy butt - actually, Ella doesn't want to go #2 on the potty either, but will go #1 - any suggestions on getting her to go #2 too?)

Anyway, I was a horrible mother and brought him inside. So he screamed for a while - he kicked his legs for a while. I picked him up and later, after he calmed down, I put him back down and he went over to the door and tried to open the door himself. I remember Ella doing this too. Very determined children. His favorite thing to do outside is to go up and down the stairs - of which, I need to help him with.

He is becoming more of a full-time walker. I will catch him out of the corner of my eye walking toward me or to something else. It still feels a bit strange to see him walking. He seems too small to do something like that. He still does crawling more, but he'll get to full-time walker status soon, I think. He'll be 13 months this week and this is about when Ella did more walking on her own too.

Benjamin, lately, has been wanting to wear his jammy shirts to pre-school. We have all these shirts for him to wear, but they are just not what he wants. Oh well. We let him have this one.

I saw Ella and Nicholas giving each other hugs and leaning their heads into each other. I've seen them do this a number of times and each time, I find it so adorable. Benjamin doesn't seem as lovey-dovey to Nicholas as Ella is. I suppose it is a boy/girl thing. We went to the UW campus the other day to see the cherry blossoms (very pretty) and I saw these 3 boys wrestling with each other - I can just see Benjamin and Nicholas doing the same soon - maybe Ella will join in too.

When we went to lunch the other day after church with Paul and Ally, Nicholas kept giving smiley faces to Andre (their almost 3 month old). It was rather cute.

    I'm starting to see glipses of the future too. Sometimes the boys get along playing. Other times, they are mad at each other and want to be apart. Hmmmmm, that won't happen in the future, right?
