Let’s talk about toddler tantrums! The boys are 15 months old and have been testing out a new aspect of their personalities – tantrums! They don’t happen all the time, but when they do…are they a doozy! This morning, one little guy was particularly angry:
If I take something away that they want, they get pretty angry. Micah in particular has been throwing down. This doesn’t happen all the time, but like I said…when it does…oh LORD. With Micah, it’s random. He will get really angry, throw himself on the floor, scream, the whole nine yards. My response is to ignore him. Sometimes he will follow me around screaming and as I continue to ignore him, he eventually stops. When he throws a tantrum in his crib though, it’s another story. He starts to jump up and down, scream, and sometimes accidentally hits himself on the railing. This happens once in awhile, but I’m not quite sure how to defuse him. Josiah sleeps through it all. Josiah has freak-out moments too of ear piercing screams, but they aren’t very often. I guess when these moments of craziness DO happen, it’s traumatic. 95% of the time though, they are happy little buggers.
I can’t get over how they don’t look like little babies anymore.
And here are some other pictures of life with twin boys:
My MIL has still been watching the boys for us for the majority of the time with my mom watching them about once a week. Hubs is pretty much completely full-time. It was supposed to be part-time but it blossomed into full-time and we just went with it! Other changes, we finally found a new church we both feel really excited and happy to be a part of. This Sunday we will start attending full-time and are super excited! Words to describe this church – humble, serving, passionate, real. Importantly, it’s very close to home!
Let’s talk Thanksgiving. This Thanksgiving we will be together as a family. HUBS WILL NOT BE WORKING! This is amazing because he was involved in retail for over ten years and has pretty much worked the majority of the holidays. Last holiday I spent with one of my best friends but she lives in TX now. So this year our plan is to start our own family tradition. What traditions do you have for Thanksgiving? Keep in mind this Thanksgiving will be spent with just the hubs and my boys. It won’t be too big. Anyway, this is all for tonight. I need to catch up on reading some blogs. Xoxo!
