Reading at Night-night Time

November 29th, 2014. (22 months, 2 weeks old.) by andrew

Sometimes I read with just Mommy or Daddy, but sometimes we read a story together with Ben.

Sometimes I’m just too wiggly to sit still for one of Ben’s big books, but this one had lots of pictures!

First Lost Tooth!

November 26th, 2014. (6 years, 5 months old.) by ben

Well, Daddy said it was time for my tooth to come out since it had to get out of the way of my shark tooth.  So he tied it to the doorknob, and 4 tries later (the string kept slipping off!), it popped right out!

Yay!  My first lost tooth!  And we almost really lost it, too.  It shot out of my mouth, bounced off the doorknob, left the floss behind and disappeared.  Forty-five minutes of searching later, Daddy found it 15 feet away on the bathroom sink!  By then, I’d already written an explanatory note to the tooth fairy.  Good thing I didn’t have to use it!

The next morning, I found a gold dollar coin under my pillow!

Thank you, tooth fairy!

(Ed. Note: While the woven floss held on to the tooth better than the waxed, it has a much larger spring coefficient, which I believe responsible for the extraordinary trajectory of the tooth which caught us all off-guard.  Let this be a word of caution to parents out there.  Oh, and way to go, Ben!)

It’s time to clean out rooms, and guess what? That means all of budder’s stuff is out of the closet where I can get to it!


Pizza with Andrew

November 24th, 2014. (6 years, 5 months old.) by ben

I’ve made a few pizzas with Mommy, but Andrew?  He’s just getting started.  But he’s coming along fast with M&D and me to help him learn!

Despite us telling him that he doesn’t need to use a knife on the dough, he keeps insisting.  M&D keep saying something about “2”.

I’m learning to use the mower!  It makes a lot of noise, but it’s OK if you don’t go to fast.

More Banana Bread

November 11th, 2014. (21 months, 4 weeks old.) by andrew

Every chance I get, I talk M&D into making some ‘nana bread.

If only I could mix it forever! So much fun!  Daddy makes me stop and put it in the baking pan :(

On the bright side, you do get to eat it after it comes out of the oven!

That’s how many teeth I have right now… since my first big tooth is coming in and my baby tooth hasn’t fallen out yet!
Check it out: Shark Teeth!

(Ed. Note: Look behind left front tooth.)

If I get fins next, maybe that will make me a better swimmer?
