Boys will be Boys

Wow I am learning the difference between boys and girls. First I learned that boys just love the toilet. There is no amount of "no no's" and "yucky's" and "Joshua nasty nasty" that will keep them out of it. If I hear that high pitched laugh and hear the very fast pitter patter of hands and knees on the carpet, I know I have left the bathroom door open and he is headed for his prized destination. Boys also have to be on the move at all times. Allie was so content with sitting and playing with her little toys, she crawl a few feet and stop and play with her toys. Well, Joshua is constantly here and there and everywhere. I am really going to be in for it when he starts walking right!! I have also learned that boys will eat anything and everything. The boy LOVES to eat. I have to bribe Allie to get her to eat just about anything. Not my little man. Oh no. He loves to shovel in as much food as he can in one sitting. And yes I said shovel in. He is feeding himself just about everything. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT! He said "don't think so" to baby food about two weeks ago and has since discovered chicken nuggets, nutrigrain bars, sweet peas, carrots, etc etc. And finally, I have learned that boys love their mama to the nth degree. Allie was always very very attached to me and still is, but that twinkle in her eye belonged and still does to her daddy. Well, I finally see that twinkle when Joshua looks at me, and it melts me every time!!
I wish that this video showed his little noise that he makes with his nose better. He will do it for me any time of the day except for when I get the camera out. Here is a little glimpse of this sweet little smile that warms my heart every day!

So precious and what a beautiful smile he has; just like his mama! This is such a fun stage!!

James was (and still is) the same way about the toilet. Audrey is always telling him "no no bubba" when he goes near it!

However, Audrey is the one that goes from here to there and everywhere. Never still that one!!

Love you guys and hope to see you soon!!
