(Drew at 7 Months Gabe at 6 Months)
Our Caterpillars moved into their Chrysalis forms this past week. Drew loves to run downstairs each morning and check on them He took them to school today to show all his friends. Nana also taught us a fun song which we have been singing plenty of - it is about Metamorphosis! I took the boys to the Goodwill this past Friday in search of some new books, Drew was so good. He sat in the book section for 30 minutes while I scrummaged through tons of bins of books. He currently loves Richard Scarry books - we found 4! At .50 cents for soft cover and 1.00 for hard its cheaper to go to the Goodwill than the library (since we can never remember to being books back on time!). We bought a nice stack which have already been read multiple times. Drew is turning into quite the bookworm. We also found a portable tape player which has two microphones attached so sing along with. Drew has been captivated, listening to many of the old tapes I listened to as a child - Psalty, Wee Sing, and Julie's favorite "Raffi."
Drew said the funnies thing yesterday, he insisted on cleaning out his ear with a Q-tip and when he pulled it out all yellow, he said, "Yucky, mommy theirs pee in my ear!"
John and I have been trying to teach Drew the difference between "Needs and Wants." He just started to say, "Mommy(or Daddy), I NEED this." He is starting to understand the difference. Today he said, "Mommy, I want a cupcake" instead of needing one. Drew is at such a fun age, he is learning tons of new things each day and we are actually having conversations!
