Brothers


These guys truly love to play together. They have been getting along really well and for the most part, would choose to be with each other over anyone else. Jonathan is so great with the babies. He holds Price all of the time and just thinks he is so cute. He and Levi still have some issues to work out, but they have been learning how as we have been teaching them that there are other ways to communicate besides hitting and yelling. I love to listen to conversations between Jonathan and Levi when they don't know that I am listening. I don't have any direct quotes, but it is normally Jonathan telling Levi how he needs to be playing the game and Levi going right along with it. Sometimes it is boy talk about superheroes and and what their powers are and which powers Jonathan and Levi have acquired. It is so great! I love these boys and I am so glad to be their mother. I am learning everyday as I strive to have the Spirit to guide me in this adventure of raising boys.

That is so cool. Don't you just love when your kids get along and can play and play? I loved reading about your trip home! It sounds like you had such a blast! What a great vacation for you! And it looks like you had lots of yummy food! MMMM!:)

So as small as that comment was, it means so much. My mom, the child therapist, was telling me that she was getting me some book for christmas on how to understand and raise little boys! It definitely has to be something that you are lead by the spirit with every second! Although some times it is just to loud:) (joke:)
I LOVE listening to Hunter and Max talk when they don't know i'm listening. It is so cute....until I have to intervene b/c max is about to through an enormous dinosaur at Hunter's Head! Oh well, Whats a mom to do?

Your boys are all so cute. It is always nice when they all get along. It truely makes up for the times you would like to just ring their necks!!! I love having my four boys and can't wait until Keaton can keep up with them! You are such a good patient mother and that is why you have such good kids. We sure miss playing in that sand box!

Ah boys! Yours are so good. Mine drive me crazy. But, not as crazy as the GIRLS!@!!!@!@! It's the girls that are BRAWLING on Sunday mornings around here! You'd think it was Ty, but, no! It's the girls! They take after their mama who has 3 brothers and so learned how to deal with problems just like a guy - sock 'em one! And THEN cry. :)
