boston had been co-sleeping with mom and dad until a couple of months ago, logan and i finally realized it was time that he started sleeping in james' room. he needed to learn how to comfort himself more and not rely on me to put him to sleep. since the big change he has been sleeping really well and throughout the night. we used the sleep lady shuffle with him and it finally stuck. he has a pretty simple routine. after we leave the room he normally climbs out of his crib and snuggles with his big brother. james loves it most days, other days he comes to me saying, mom boston slept in my bed again. we have explained to james that sometimes boston just wants to be near him and feels safe when he is next to you, since then there have been very few complaints. i love that my boys find comfort in each other. i always find them playing or sitting next to one another or sharing a pillow sleeping. they really do have a strong bond and love to show they care. they are so sweet, i am so lucky to have such wonderful boys.

notice all the toys, they normally play and play until they are ready for bed.

It snowed this month, real snow, fluffy white snow! I was extremely excited, snow in Missouri is not like the snow in Arizona. The snow here turns to ice almost instantly or it lasts for few days then become ice. So when it finally snowed real fluffy snow, I knew I had to take the boys out in it. I bundled them al up, we have very little snow gear since we don't get snow and because its rare that I let them go out and play in it.
James and Boston loved it! They were so excited to see it! Boston was not so happy when he fell over face first into it, thanks to mom he was having a hard time walking and playing. Once he was over that he played and played until he has too cold to move. Then it was time to go in and warm up and watch a movie!

learning to fly

My Lately I have been watching my little guys, they are adorable and I am so glad that they don't mind mom staring at them. James wasn't being very nice to Boston and had pushed him. I asked James why he would do that and reminded him how pushing is not very nice. He replied with "but mom, Boston was trying to fly so I pushed him." Where does this come from? I had to hold in the laughter I just reminded him that pushing is not nice, and he shouldn't try to help people fly, especially since Boston probably didn't ask to fly. Later they were both picking on each other and I told James that if he were going to choose to be mean to Boston than he would need to take a break in his room. He wasn't to thrilled, (in our house taking a break is a hidden word for time out since he doesn't like time out we use take a break. It works and he asks to take a break when he is to overwhelmed.) Anyways he sat and thought and then stood up walked to Boston and said "Boston I am sorry for being mean will you forgive me?" YES!!! He finally got it! I have been working on forgiveness with James for a couple of months and normally he can apologize on his own, but asking for forgiveness needs a little reminder. And he did it all on his own. He followed Boston around for a bit asking over and over for his forgiveness and Boston smiled and gave him a hug. These two love each other! They may fight and not agree but they love each other more than anything! I love watching their love for one another grow.
