10/23--Holden loves dot-to-dot puzzles so I found him a whole book full of them.
10/24--Wes is NOT a binky boy but Holden sure loves trying to make him take one. Wes was actually sucking on the binky as long as Holden was holding it for him :)
10/25--Holden absolutely ADORES his brother. He loves holding him, kissing him hugging him, talking in a high pitch voice to him, and more recently...trying to carry him! He actually does a really good job of carrying him very short distances with me right beside.
10/26--We created a reading log for Holden to accomplish. If he reads 20 hours he gets a Skylander--which is a big deal in our house! Holden helped me come up with other incentive ideas along the road to the Skylander. At 5 hours he gets a new hot wheels car, at 10 hours he gets an extra hour of Skylanders, and at 15 hours he gets a new snowglobe (not sure why he chose that?). Holden loves to read but the reading along gives us that extra push to read daily at least for 30 minutes.
10/27--Love these 3 boys of mine. This picture was taken right after dinner.
10/28--Kurt and Holden had a daddy/son date and went to see "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2." They got some treats before the movie and when they got home Holden handed me a laffy taffy. I love that remembers me and how much I love laffy taffy :) The 2nd picture was taken while the boys were at the movies, Wes and I were enjoying our quiet time together. I was trying to get him to smile--but no such luck :)
10/29--Wes can put himself to sleep and I love it. As I was cooking dinner tonight, he quietly dozed to sleep. 2nd picture--real life. Puffy eyes and no makeup but celebrating our 2 month old!
