this week in (smartphone) pictures - weeks 18, 19, 20, 21, 22 - (or something like that!)

Many things to write about, but sickness has invaded our house for almost a week and a half now, I think. I've lost track. The boys are better (aside from the lingering snotty nose and cough), but I think I may have caught what they have. We shall see what I feel like when I wake up.
However, as usual, I am behind on my week in pictures so that it is more like month in pictures. Again, these are just from my phone - not high quality but happy memories.  I will try to post Easter pictures soon.
Even on tough days (or weeks), it is a joy to get to be these boys' mama. They are fun, they crack me up, and they are learning and doing new things all the time. Bubby is six next month. It means 1/3 of his time with me will be over! But I won't think about that right now. I'm sleep deprived and coughing and emotional. Here are the pictures:

In recent weeks, Bug has enjoyed learning to wrestle his big brother.  It's a rite of passage, I believe, for all brothers.

 A somewhat blustery day at the park. Gotta love matching hoodies.

Ninja Turtle jammies + sunglasses + maraca as a microphone + plastic guitar for a video game system we do not have = a five year old rock star

The Hubs bought the boys some M&M's. A picture is worth a thousand words.

Spring Break from Babushka.

And Spring Break visit from G-ma Deb aka the Bugaboo Whisperer. Seriously.

Bubby watching Wizard of Oz for the first time. He told me the witch was not scary! Who is this kid?! She terrified me as a child. I STILL am afraid of the Wicked Witch from the West.

Zoo day with friends. (pictures with friends not included on this blog) It was a perfect morning and we got through our picnic just as it started to rain.

Bubby went to Chuck E. Cheese for a friend's birthday party.  He likes the driving games.

Lunch date attempt with my youngest. First half went great, then we had to leave to prevent a meltdown over a tablecloth. As I was taking him to the car to finish my food and for him to calm down, he yells out, "I had fun! I had a good time!"

I went to check on the boys before I went to bed, and I found Bug holding onto Scout's ear. Such a good doggie.

Bug couldn't decide between Elmo pajamas and Cookie Monster pajamas, so we went with both.


Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with me.
