What Came First, the Chicken, or the Egg? Plus, Gus passes his float test!!!

Yes, the boys have gotten smarter when it comes to the cats. Well, really it is just one cat, Mr. Willow. Checkers still stays far, far away from the boys. Here is a progression of them laughing and taunting the cat outside with water. Poor Willow must have been thirsty!


Catch me if you can!
These boys seriously are still infectious with their laughter, and how can you not smile watching them run around trying to get each other? They are even holding each others hands when we ask them to. The funniest thing in the world is to watch us run around the mall and all of us hold hands. Too cute! Yesterday I took them to DSW shoe store and they went crazy. No stroller, no backpacks, just run, run, run. Look at shoes, then on to the mirrors by their feet, then to the leather chairs to sit and watch Sportscenter, and then they both found the same shoe at different times, the only one they picked up, and it happened to be a bedazzled turquoise shoe; it must have spoken to them!

However, with moving to one nap consistently, especially after swimming lessons, they get very tired, quickly!!! Here is a view of lunch from last week.

Raleigh, very tired at lunch...
Augustus, even more tired at lunch...



They are really working on talking more. They can say "milk" and are better at saying "on." Gus seems to really have found his voice and is making all sorts of noises all the time. In the car he will say all the words he knows repeatedly. The boys both said Non in the car and made the "where's" sign after we dropped her off. Raleigh even managed on clear "Non-nie" as well.

Today, Augustus did his winter clothes float test. He passed!!! Raleigh is doing his tomorrow. Unfortunately, Rals has been dropping his feet in the water, so Korey wanted one more day to work with him. Little man is so tired that despite all the work they did today, he was still not keeping his kicks near the top of the water surface. I think it may have to do with some serious teething going on. All four of their incisors are coming in at once. Or it could be his toe. He dropped something on his toe this week and now his pinky toenail is hanging on by the cuticle and the toe is really bruised. It does not bother him walking or even with shoes on, but man - don't even think about touching it.
Poor little man!!!


Here are some video links via YouTube. I cannot stand waiting around for Blogger any more! It takes sooooo long, and then sometimes does not even post. YouTube works in minutes. Enjoy!!!

Last, but not least, yesterday we went to Target with Nonnie. It is almost Halloween, and yes, they have costumes out, and even some Christmas decorations too - what the heck is that about???? We all know Grandpa Pickles is really Grandpa Chicken, but Nonnie saw a chicken costume and had to try it out! Here is a shot of her, and a priceless one of the boys laughing with her. Augustus did a darn good chicken impression as well!
