It seems like Benjamin has really grown up this week. I've noticed that he has really started using the phrase "I can do it myself." He's doing a great job being so independent. The picture above, with the backwards underpants, is just one example of the independence. At least he has underpants on, I guess. He also is saying really complex, lengthy sentences that are grammatically correct and make complete sense....although I guess he's been doing that for a long time. Of course I can't think of any examples at the moment, but it's like talking to an adult. Seriously.
Wait a second. Did I say Benjamin? I meant Percy. He insists on being called Percy (from Thomas the Tank Engine). Percy is #6, so he is also six now, not 3 1/2. Too funny.
Evan has had a pretty rough week. He's had some sort of cold-thing for about 3-4 weeks. Finally this week the cough got wetter and the drainage got dramatically worse. He has had trouble sleeping, had low energy, trouble eating, and a general discomfort just being alive. We finally took him to the dr. today, and wouldn't you know he's been the best he's felt all week. The doctor didn't see anything wrong and in fact said his ears looked "beautiful" and his lungs were perfectly clear. I'm so happy that he doesn't have an ear infection or anything, and even more happy that he's feeling better, I just don't understand why kids always start feeling better the second you park your butt in the waiting room. It's the darndest thing.
I found the USB cable yesterday, so I'm back to posting pictures. Now I have to start taking them every week!
