Pete and I think we have the cutest boys ever. I know every parent says this about their kids, and we are no different. Having a 2 year old and an infant is so fun. We worried about how Micah would adjust to Patrick, but he’s done so well. He loves his brother. I can’t go anywhere without Micah calling out “Baby” making sure I don’t forget Patrick! He loves to lay beside Patrick during tummy time and give him his trucks to play with too. Every morning he greets us “Daddy”, “Momma”, “Hi P-Bear” It’s so darling to hear him say hi to his lil brother!
Micah’s repertoire of words is growing daily. My favorite thing to hear him talk about are his Beans. We have 2 interns this year: Billy & Glen. After Micah realized these young men were here to stay (about May) he started calling them Bean! All of them are Bean; including my youngest brother in law Tim. When he hears a car come in the driveway or when Pete would come home for dinner Micah would look past Pete and ask “Bean?” He loves having them over for dinner (we host them 3 nights a week). Glen took it upon himself to teach Micah to call Billy “Beanpole”. He was successful. And Tim became “Dum” or “Dum bean” and Glen is “Gen”. Last night we were waiting for dinner to be ready and he just hollers out “Beanpole!” “Gen!” – The guys were downstairs washing eggs and Micah could hear them talking. We have no idea where the original “Bean” name came from. But it is so cute. He knows who they are individually too. I asked Micah where each boy was by name and he correctly pointed to them saying “Dare” or there. As he meets new people I’m working on teaching him to say their names. He can say Patrick, Susy, Chuck, J, Gramma, Grampaa, and we’re working on Caleb. (it’s a toughy that can’t be shortened!) He knows who all these people are but he can’t say their names just yet!
Well… all the beans are coming here with the whole crew for pizza dinner tonight and I have a table full of cinnamon rolls that need iced! Till next time – T
