A Stroll and Some Harvey Stories

I decided to take the boys out for a walk last week. We had been cooped up in the house all day and I wanted to get out, and I wanted to get some use out of our double stroller. I wanted to get some photos of the boys while I had some good lighting and while they were (strapped in and held captive) sitting so nicely. These kids were giving me some strange looks. The obviously were feeling a little skeptical about my abilities to push a stroller around.

Seriously, those were the best photos from our walk. They didn't give me much to work with. Regardless, they're a cute little pair.

Now onto some updates about this guy. I want to make sure this doesn't become all about Charlie. Harvey is becoming quite hilarious in his old age.

*He calls Charlie "Chore-lie".

*When Charlie is crying and he's laying on the floor or somewhere where Harvey can reach him, Harv will walk over and sit next to him, put his hands around Charlie's hips and start dragging him onto his lap while saying "Come on Chorelie, don't cry". Such a good big brother. And, fortunately he's never fully picked him up. :)

*Harvey does know how to count, but he's changed it up recently. He walks around saying "1, 2, 5" quickly, all the time. And the more you try to correct him, the faster and louder he gets. So, 1,2,5 it is buddy, Preschool should be a rude awakening.

*He repeats EVERYTHING we say. There's a lot of "It's ok buddy", "Yeah man", "Good job buddy". He really makes me evaluate some of my bizarre phrases.

*Another favorite: "Ok fine" said very monotone and under his breath.Hilarious!

*He's become very independent since Charlie arrived. Out of necessity, of course. He wants milk, he can go to the refrigerator and get his own sippy cup. He climbs into his chair at the table, his car seat in the van. He can undress himself and he does it all. the. time. He can go fetch most anything I ask him to. He knows how to turn almost all of the lights in the house off and on.


*He now calls me mom and John dad. I try to correct him and make him call me "mommy" and John "daddy" because he sounds just too old. He won't do it.


*When he's feeling extra Jersey Shore he calls me "ma". Definitely not acceptable.


He's growing up so fast. Such a sweet, sensitive, caring little guy, So glad he's ours.
