Recent Activities...

Rhys & Caleb, praise the Lord, are wonderful playmates! Big brother looks after little brother {for the most part :)}, and little brother learns from big brother {most times, a good thing :)}. Their personalities are so very different, yet they compliment one another so perfectly. It's truly inspiring to watch them interact, knowing that God has great purposes in their brotherhood. Rhys is very tender, compassionate and empathetic toward Caleb, genuinely looking after him, to make sure little brother is okay. Caleb takes rough and tumble to a new level...a new {typically "goose-egg"} bruise on his forehead just about every week. {Keep up with our pics for a short time, and you'll see what I'm talking about!} Rhys is his 'brother's keeper.' :)

Here are some sweet memories we 'caught' from the last month:

At Caleb's 18-month check-up, the boys played and had a little cracker picnic in the waiting room. We NEVER go to the doctor without snacks and toys {for Mommy's sake :)}!!
A visit to play at our local library...
Rhys enJOYs playing with play-doh! Caleb's not allowed yet...poor guy...I get tired of saying, "No, no, Caleb. Not in your mouth." :)
Both boys enjoy coloring with markers...
And Rhys has really gotten really GOOD at staying in between the lines!
Lots of sweet playing together...Rhys likes to sneak kisses onto Caleb when he can catch him!
Some fun with chalk...
And the boys just got a new set of bunk beds!
Rhys sleeps on the lower bunk, and since Caleb still sleeps in a crib, they use the top bunk {with parental supervision :)} as a play area for their car mat and cars. Rhys is great at climbing the ladder, and I know it's only a matter of time for Caleb, our fearless one, to perfect that feat! {Yikes! :)}
And when all else fails indoors, and God blesses us with sunshine and dry weather {Hooray for this mild winter!!!}, we go outside to play! Lots of times, we end up in Daddy's truck bed with random toys. :)
Rhys and Caleb are in a sweet new season where they really play well together. I am SO thankful!! God has blessed us with some precious little boys, and we continue to ENJOY our days and nights with them! "Thank YOU, Lord!!"
