I feel like the boys are growing and changing so much lately, that I wanted to do an update on the little dudes...
Loves to cook, play with his 'no-no' cars and pretend he is a fire fighter. He also gets his pop gun (which he calls his shotgun) and goes 'hunting' for bears... Roen has started participating in this too :) He is such a little pretender!
Is FUlLY potty trained. He was potty trained around his 3rd birthday, but would still wear pull-ups at nap and nighttime. About two months ago, he stopped wearing pull-ups all together! I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing him run around and in his cute little underwear (when he wears them) and stop playing to go to the bathroom all by himself.
Remi's favorite foods are blackberries, pickles, cheese, cucumbers and carrots
Remi LOVES books and loves to be read to! He just got 'Good Night, Good Night Construction Site' for Christmas and I'd say this is his favorite book of all. We read it almost every night. He loves any book about trucks or fire trucks!
Can fully dress himself. It seems like it took forever for him to be able to this completely, but now he can! Shoes, underwear, coat, hat, pants, shirt...what a help this is!
Picks on Roen NON-STOP. He takes things from Roen, chases him around scaring him and really anything to get a rise out of him. Honestly, I think he thinks it's fun! He loves playing with Roen. When Roen naps and sleeps in longer than him, he will often want to go wake him up.
When he gets in trouble he will usually say 'you hurt my fee-ins (feelings)' or 'I not like you anymore'
He is extremely strong-willed! When I tell him to go to time out, he runs around the house like a wild Hyena screaming and crying at the top of his lungs. I almost always have to drag him there.
Remi is constantly arguing with us and telling us 'I gonna do that' (while pointing his finger at us) when we tell him not to do something
Does great with older kids. In fact, he is VERY well-behaved when around older kids.
When I lay him down at night, he tells me that he wants Micah and I to sit on the couch and watch TV (so that he knows where we are). He also always sleeps with Lambie and a flashlight. He usually falls asleep reading to himself. I love to sneak up to his door and hear him reading to himself...it's so sweet!
Remi loves to watch, Bob the Builder, Franklin, and Little Bear
We recently did away with his little froggy potty :( He got to where he liked to get creative with his urinating and after I found the bathroom floor and bathmat soaked with pee, I decided he could use a stool and use the big toilet. Aiming down was way to tempting to veer from his target :)
Remi goes to bed around 9:00 and wakes up around 6:30. He takes one nap after lunch from about 12:30-2:30. He sleeps through the night in his own bed...HALLELUJAH!
Remi has actually gotten to where he will ask me if it's time for night-night when he gets tired. Of course, if I ask him if he is tired he will say no :)
Remi knows which way is left and which way is right!
Loves to talk! Says 'Hap'for help, 'lap' when he wants to sit in my lap and 'up' when he wants me to pick him up. He is forming sentences and just talking up a storm!
His favorite food is probably cheese. He LOVES it! He will get really excited when he sees it on his plate and say 'cheeze'
He almost always says 'peeze (please) and dan doo (thank you)
He is Remi's shadow! He loves to follow him around and do whatever he is doing!! However, they fight like cats and dogs ALL THE TIME!
We call Roen 'tender' because he is extremely sensitive! If we ever have to get onto him, he will usually get his feelings hurt, start crying and reach up for us to hug him. It is pretty sweet!
If he is being naughty, and I ask him 'do you want a spanking/time out' he will shake his head and say 'na' (no)
Loves his 'babies'...any one of his million stuffed animals. Sometimes I want to get clean them out because he has so many, but he really, really LOVES them all!
Sleeps with his 'pupdog' but really would be happy sleeping with any 'baby'
LOVES to eat! He usually runs to the dinner table when I announce that breakfast/lunch/dinner is ready. There are many times that he will eat everything on his plate and then finish off what Remi didn't eat. Sometimes I sit with him for an HOUR while he finishes
Recently, Roen has gotten very much into 'Moush' (Mickey Mouse)
Roen goes to bed between 7:00 and 8:00 and wakes up around 8:00. He takes one nap after lunch from about 12:30-2:00
Roen LOVES to sleep. There are many times that he will go get his blankie, pupdog and say 'nigh nigh' becasue he is tired and wants to go to bed. There are also many times that when I announce it's night-night time he will literally run in his room. At night time, I say a little prayer with him then lay him in his bed. He usually tells me 'nigh nigh' as I close his door. Honestly, Roen's favorite things are eating and sleeping! Ha!
