Charlie is a hog with the baby food: cereal, yogurt, fruits and vegetables, meat, anything you put in or near his mouth. He will hardly nurse or take a bottle - he wants big boy food!
Josef is almost always happy and is such a little joy. And he will eat anything too. I've never seen a kid eat mushrooms before! He is talking so much more lately, using and misusing little phrases he picks up here and there (some that we wish he hadn't).
John Paul is really enjoying school and soccer. However he has a hard time obeying the first time, and "if Mommy has to ask all her boys five times, that would be twenty times." He does better if I appeal to his senses of responsibility and purpose. For instance, this week he's the man of the house while Daddy is in Kansas for work.
We're looking to close on our new house in the next week or so. It's more than 2,800 square feet with 4 bedrooms plus a loft, and a pantry as big as our minivan. We're very excited and hope to be moved in by Thanksgiving. It's a much longer commute to work (30 miles versus 4), and we'll wear out our CD player listening to books and lectures and learning foreign languages, but it's definitely worth it considering the space and the price.
