23 months!

Wow can you believe how big my babies are getting! Just wanted to share a few things that they are doing at this age.
Calling each other by name! Yes we have an Aaaaeeee, Tyder and a Bock.
Still loving (Melmo) Elmo and maybe a little bit (Cookie) Cookie monster.
Love using their utensils to eat and oh what a mess as you can see with the ravioli!
Addie's favorite thing right now is to swing. She stands at the back door and whines "Wing wing wing" It can be raining and she is standing their begging to outside.
We remain doing our morning stroller walks around the neighborhood weather permitting. The kids are still very shy and will not talk to the neighbors. (this is my me time as I can plug in the ipod and the kids are busy watching what's going on around them)
They can copy me saying the alphabet and it's so cute to hear Addie say Q "Cue"
They count 1,2,3 which is no surprise since I have been counting it out loud since their birth.
They love to color and play with play dough.
Brock is using his please,sorry and thank you signs very often. It's hard to turn him down when he wants 3rds and 4ths at the dinner table when he says "more please". Addie is also using them just not as often. She knows how to use them but gets angry when we ask her to. Tyler says "Gank goo".
Addison is copying me and making me very aware of my actions. I never realized how much I stand with my hands on my hips until she started doing it every time I was.
Toddler beds are well... don't switch to toddler beds EVER. Keep your kids in their cribs until they leave the house. Haha. So since switching other than the normal not wanting to stay in bed(keep in mind we removed everything possible from their rooms to try and keep them in bed and not out playing). I have caught my kids pulling the vents off the air ducts and putting anything they can down them including blankets. I have caught them pulling screws out of their beds,they have gotten ahold of the carpet and made runners in it, they have removed the door stopper, the wheels under their beds, and all the clothes from their drawers. I had to remove the door off the hinges because they were slamming it shut. And the big scare last week. Addison missing from her bed. It took me a few seconds of panic before I saw a small foot sticking out from under Brock's bed. She was sleeping under there. She refuses to go to sleep in her bed and put herself to sleep on the floor with her pillow, blanket, bear and blankie. Every night I go up while she is sleeping and replace her back to bed.

A few swing videos

We are staying so busy with all the upcoming birthdays, hunting season, and the remodel. I appologize for the lack of posts. I have a ton of things I want to get on here but just can't seem to find the time.

I have a grape snatcher....

Yep yesterday while at the store I had put grapes in the cart. While I had my back turned Addison was eating them. She would have gotten away with it if it were not for Adam who caught her in the act. Sneaky little thing.

Progress on the master bedroom

Sorry I got some of these pictures our of order. Adam and I got a lot done this weekend on the new master bedroom. I added some of the old pictures so you can see how much we have done. When starting it sounded like such an easy project but as we got into building walls and wiring we realized it was not so easy. We still have a lot of small jobs to do to get it finished up such as some hard woods in the hallway, some baseboards, a little touch up painting. The floor need a few good scrubbings to get all the dry wall dust off! However we are within a week or two of being able to move ourselves in!

Goin on a bear hunt....

Tyler's not afraid, however it took the other two a little bit more time to warm up. This is Papa's bear he got in Ontario Canada at Big Bear Camp last September. It weighed in at 410 lbs and was at least 7ft tall! Lets hope Tyler never runs into a live bear because he likes to look at their teeth.

Addie went to the doctor

After a weekend of high fevers for Addie we got her into the doctor today. She has an ear infection. She has been acting a little strange so I thought she may have also have a urinary tract infection. The doctor said she would rather avoid doing to procedure to test her for that but said the antibiotics for the ear infection would also clear it up if she does.
