Ethan or Christopher?

Ethan is being a Christopher today.

When we were at my mom's house a couple of weeks ago, Ethan was having a really hard time behaving and so my mom decided to call him "Christopher" and decided that he is an "Ethan" when he is being a good boy. Christopher is his middle name, but it is also his dad's name. Ethan looks exactly like Chris did when he was a little boy and I imagine that Chris got into a lot of mischief.

When I got him up this morning Ethan smiled at me all sweet and gave me a hug. I thought to myself, "this is gonna be a good day". Little did I know what he had in store. Okay, so he hasn't really been that bad today. He hasn't spilled anything on my carpet or anything like that. He just won't listen to me or be nice to Logan. Poor Logi. At breakfast Ethan kept shoving his waffle and bottle into Logan's face and Logan was getting really mad. Then he started pulling on Logan's ear and poking him in the eye. When they were in the tub he kept putting his legs around Logan and Logan would scream. We went into Ethan's room to get his clothes and he proceeds over to his book/toy shelf and starts pulling everything onto the floor. We were in my room and he was hiding behind my bed and he kept peeking around to see if I was looking. Finally I went over to see what he was getting into and it was the Reese's peanut butter cups that I had bought for Chris last night. Luckily, he didn't make a mess. At least he is a clean bad boy. :) Sorry Chris. I will have to get you a new one. He also grabbed my chapstick off the dresser and started drawing with it on the wall.

As you can see, he really hasn't been that bad... just a typical two year old. But because he chose to be a Christopher today instead of an Ethan he got the reward of an early nap. Logan also took an early nap, because he was so worn out and cranky from Ethan picking on him... and now I get a break to recuperate for when nap time is over.

When Ethan is being a good boy he is so good about playing with Logan and helping me with him. He will put his arm around Logan, look at me, and say, "2 Boys!" It is adorable. Logan has started talking a little more and the last couple of days he has been saying, "Who dat?" or "Wuts dat"?When I came home from school last night the boys were playing under a fort. So cute!

I know I have been rambling, but I just wanted to add a picture of my cute glasses that I got yesterday. I usually wear contacts, but I have really been wanting glasses for when I don't feel like contacts.

Best Friends

It has been a little over a week since my last post and it has been on my mind to write one the last couple of days, but I just keep thinking that I will do it "tomorrow". Well, it is pretty late at night and I can't sleep and it is technically "tomorrow", so I decided why not? I'm just staring at the inside of my eye lids, so I might as well be productive.

My goal lately has been to be better at time management. With going to school full time and taking care of two little boys, I don't have a whole lot of time to be lazy (and that is my favorite thing in the whole world). So far I have been staying on top of my school work. I usually do homework in the morning, before the boys get up (if I can get up), and when they are down for a nap. I am still very excited to be in school and furthering my education, but we will see if I feel the same way when I have to take three exams next week.

Logan and Ethan have been doing great. They are growing up so fast and starting to become good friends. Logan really looks up to Ethan and Ethan has been wanting to play with Logan more and more. It is so adorable when Ethan talks to Logan and Logan jabbers back. Ethan got a cute "Cars" table and chairs set for Christmas and so the other day I decided that they should have a little lunch party on it in Ethan's room. They ate Ramen noodles (not too messy) and I had so much fun watching them. I hope that since they are so close in age, they will be best friends and always want to do things together.

Ethan making himself at home (I haven't posted pics of his room yet, because it isn't quite finished).Sweet Logi- He loved the Ramen noodles. He was smacking his lips the whole time.

I don't know

I have been putting off writing a blog, because A) I am really busy (at least I say that to myself), B) I am really lazy (this one is a definite), and C) I don't know what to write. A lot has been happening at our house, but I am not sure if it is blog worthy. Okay, it is... I am just making up another excuse while I try to figure out what I am going to write about.

So I think I will write about Chris. He has really been awesome lately. He has been away on business a lot, but when he's been home he has been so wonderful. He is so good about making me feel better when I am having a hard time and the boys have really loved playing with him. We sure miss him when he is gone. I didn't realize how much Chris does, until he is gone and I am going crazy! I am so glad that I have had family help out. Thanks guys! I don't really know what else to say; just that he has been really great! Thanks Chrissy-poo! I love you! (Don't kill me for writing that nickname. I'm not the one who made it up! :) )

I can't believe that he ever looked this young!

Here is a cute picture of Logan in his adorable church clothes that my mom bought him. I tried to get Ethan to look too, but he is in the phase where he does everything he can to not look.

What a handsome little stud!

Ethan doing everything he can to avoid the camera--what a stinker!

Also, I started school again on Monday. Is it weird to say that I am excited? I am sure when the homework and tests hit me hard, that I won't feel the same.
