October 1, 2009: Brotherly love? This is so typical of the boys’ relationship right now. Wyatt giving Augie a big hug and Augie trying to get the heck away. Wyatt really does mean well, it’s just that his hugs are a little…er…exuberant. I frequently find myself saying, “Tone it down a little, buddy. Nobody should cry when you hug them.”
October 2, 2009: This was the day my boy turned five. FIVE! I remember the day he was born like it was yesterday. Next thing I know, he’ll be thirty or something. One of his gifts from his dad and I was this kid-sized guitar. His daddy is hoping to get him started with some lessons in the next few months.
October 3, 2009: Parachute play at Wyatt’s birthday party. If you’re ever looking for someone to rock a parachute, Dale at the Albany Y is your gal. Even I had fun doing the parachute.
October 4, 2009: These bath towels belong to Zach and me. Can you guess who’s is which?
October 5, 2009: Wyatt had a play date at the park with his best buddy from preschool. He misses him.
October 6, 2009: Since Augie learned to climb up on the couch that’s the only place he wants to hang out.
October 7, 2009: Augie has insisted on feeding himself for several months now and because of that, his meals take between an hour and an hour and a half. When you multiply that by 3 meals a day, sometimes it seems like he spends half his waking hours in his high chair.
