Elephants and other news

Yesterday morning at the breakfast table, Andy and i were discussing a situation. He said something like: "i hope this happens or it will be like there is an elephant in the room". Promptly we had two toddlers making elephant noises and swinging their trunks around!

Both kids have been loving toward each other recently. When one is upset, the other brings his/her favorite animals to him. The other day Gwen hurt her lip and cole wanted to help me hold a water cup for her to get a drink.

Gwen went on to bust her lip again the other day. She went down the slide at Breinigsville park head first and landed in the mulch :( I still don't knwo what happened but i'm assuming she lost her balance as she was trying to sit while wearing snow boots and layers of clothing. Poor little girl now has a busted swollen lip in two places.

This morning we took a winter walk at Rodale. Cole walked close to a mile and Gwen alternated between walking and riding in the stroller. Cole enjoys being out in nature like his grandpa. He stops to look at the geese and to count them. At the end of the walk we asked him what he enjoyed the most and he said: "Turkey Vulture".

Big Kids and the Rooster

On Saturday (2/19) Cole and Gwen went pee pee on the potty for Nana and Pap Pap. Cole has gotten the idea of the past few days and has proudly been peeing on his big boy potty.

Yesterday (2/20) we went to walmart on our weekly grocery run. Gwen wanted to go in "mommy's shopping cart" for the first time because i had mentioned buying big girl underwear. She gladly got into my cart and we headed straight to the back of the store to pick out some "big grl underwear". After looking at some princess options and star options, she finally decided on a variety of hearts. Later, Cole picked out thomas underwear with daddy. He gripped his underewear so tightly that he refused to let the cashier ring it up! When we were outside putting the groceries in the car, cole decided to be very silly. He started making rooster noises. Now, he was not doing this softly at all. In fact, i'm pretty sure the majority of the parking lot could hear our little rooster :)
