It is finally nice enough to go outside!

So whenever we can, that is where we are.

We are even starting to see some signs of life!

And Brayden still loves his wagon. After I pulled him, he told me it was my turn.

So I got in. Why not? Right?

Then he realilzed we weren't going to go anywhere that way.
"Mamma! Out!"

We've been going for walks outside too. Jack loves it!

He even takes his naps in the stroller.

The only one not too happy about spring is Grizzly.

He is still rolling in some of the snow piles. Brayden thinks its hilarious.

"Siwwy Gwiz!"

It makes Grizz sad.

He is defending the last of his snow pile.

Then I taught Brayden how to go potty outside.

And wipe his nose on his sleeve.

I may regret that later.

But right now, I will do anything to avoid another never ending tantrum or whining jag.

They have been rather frequent and all encompassing lately.

"Hey! It's Mamma's turn with that rake!

Get back here!"

Now when Brayden thinks something is unjust, he says "HEY!".

Occasionally accompanied by a "hhhcccch!" noise and a swat of the air.

I am finding a two year old to be one of life's greatest challenges.

Jack thinks it's all very funny!
Jack is getting so big that I actually had to pack away some of his

9 month outfits...his feet are too big for them!

He took this picture of himself. He pulled the camera close enough to

try to taste it, and I pushed the button.

Everything must be tasted these days!

It is a fun time!

Then, last night, before he went to bed, Brayden discovered that his little nose fit in the space between my nose and eyes. He spent about 5 minutes just playing with that new idea.

I was so grateful for the sweet moment before bedtime!

We also took both boys to the chiropractor this week.

Jack had another ear infection, and we needed an alternative.

So the chiropractor adjusted him, marveled at his easygoing-ness and

told me how to move extra fluid out with an easy massage of his

lymph nodes.

We also had Brayden treated. When his test results came back negative for C-Diff we were elated. But still needed to get to the bottom of the mess. So he went to the chiropractor too.

And after being adjusted as he ran around the room (that woman is fantastic!), he is on the mend too!

Yay! Happy Spring to us!
