34 and 14 Months

It's true, they are really that old.

Adam turned 34 months, on Wednesday and Matthew will be 14 months old on Tuesday. I'm not really sure where the time has gone. It's been a blur, and it's really gone SO fast.

Here's what they are doing, these days:


*Adam thinks he knows everything.
*Adam is VERY shy around everyone.
*Adam doesn't stop talking, when he's at home.
*Adam loves to sing his "ABCs"- I will be posting a video of this, this week; it's hilarious!
*Adam LOVES to help. He sometimes over-helps his brother, which doesn't go over well, sometimes. And as you've seen, he loves to help out daddy.
*Adam LOVES to help in the kitchen. We are constantly cooking mid-day, just so he can cut something up.
*Adam thinks he can read and spell. Everything is spelled either "A-d-a-m," "B-i-b-l-e," or "O-h-i-o." For example, he will say "That says, 'b-i-b-l-e," Elmo!" hmm he will get it someday.
*We visit the library about 4 times a week (no joke) because he can't stand reading a book more then once. Good thing the library is only a 2 minute drive.
*He LOVES the farmer's market. He even knows that Saturday is the day we go. And he even gets free veggies and fruit sometimes, because of how stinkin' cute he is. I've taught him well. ;)


*Andy can't stand that I call him "Matty," but if you met him, you would call him that too... it fits!
* Matty tries to SAY everything. If you say "Matt, say ...." he will say it.
* He likes to pretend he's talking on the phone. He often calls "Treyor" (my brother, Trevor) and "Dadu" (Daddy).
* Stuffed animals are his favorite. He has two or three that he carries around ALL of the time.
* He dances on command.
* He runs, everywhere!
* He has 10 teeth!!!
* He ate half of a melon, this morning... but still doesn't fit into his 12 month clothes, because they are too big.
* He says "mum,mum,mum,mum,mum...." until I answer. and if I don't answer... well, you don't even want to see his head spin!
* Yes, he has a temper. Wonder where that came from?? doo, doo, doo, doo, doo.....
* I really think his favorite person is Adam. However, he has no problem "telling" on Adam when he is being "bad" (as he likes to say, "Admum BAD!").
* Oh! And don't tell him he's "bad"... because it's the end of the world if you do.

They are both the best gifts ever given to Andy and I. We are SO blessed to have our boys. They make me smile (and sometimes cry) on a daily basis. I can't wait to see how they grow, in the years to come.

Kathryn said...

Your boys are just SO STINKING CUTE!!!! I want to squeeze them! Fine. Maybe I would like a 4th boy. ;)

My boys love the farmer's market too! :)

Rebekah said...

I can't get over how in some of the pictures Adam looks exactly like Andy did when he was younger!

Steven loves looking at his pictures on our camera too :)

Blueberry said...

of course they are that old because bean is 38 months and sprout is 5 1/2 months! ;)

the two of them are just too funny. TOO FUNNY!!!

Maya said...

I love that he can't stand to be called Matty. He's just way to big for that! :)

Where does the time go? It seems like a month ago that I was seeing that sweet picture of you sleeping with an infant Matty on your chest.

Stacy said...

Oh, the telling on each other will only get worse, believe me! ;) They sound like they are tons of fun to be around, and so cute to boot! LOL at Adam getting free veggies and fruit - I guess it really pays to be such a cutie. :)

buckeyemomma said...

LOL.. Mom. She's funny! Thanks for reminding me that mine is also 34 months old.. that sounds way worse than 2 doesn't it? Sigh. Sad. Got parties to plan tho!! YAY! :) I heart you big Abum and Mattchewpeechew!!! XOXO Aunt Shell

Christina said...

Hi, I'm checkin' in for my weekly catch -up! :-)
Thnkas for all your comments this week Brittany. It's been a tough one. Now as for those lovely, lovely boys....
I just wish I could see them in action for real! They really are so sweet and funny. I love Adam's hard hat. Sounds like Matthew's (I can't say doesn't seem right yet..I'm with you Andy...give me a week to get used to it) language skills are developing exponentially. I don't think the BA could say much more than 'duck' at around 14 months. Perhaps my memory is failing me. Must go and look at the Baby Book. I LOVE Adam's spelling. As a teacher I can tell you this is very good news. He has connected letter names with spelling. Now he just has to connect letter names with...letter!!! hahahaha Not bad for two though (seriously) But how did he learn B-i-b-l-e? Do you sing it to the tune of B-i-n-g-o?
Now I am rambling....I'm off to read the rest!
