The boys are trying very hard to do everything on their own now which is awesome and challenging at the same time. Getting into the car now takes at least 5min longer than normal. Getting shoes on - add another 5. But the rewards are so great. When Cole flings himself into his carseat on his own the look of pride on his face is staggering. Wilson is now trying to get his pants and t-shirts on by himeself in addition to his shoes and sweatshirts. Pants turned into a mini game of twister and pouty lip yesterday as he got one leg, then proceeded to put the other leg in the wrong side of his pant leg, then get completely tangled up. The lower lip popped out quivering and all I could do was laugh because he was so friggin cute.
In addition to wanting to do everything themselves, the boys want to pick things on their own. Both Cole and Wilson were a little overzealous at daycare when the sprinklers were out so had to pick clothes from the "backup" closet. Cole came home touting a bright orange tank top and Wilson was wearing the shortest red shorts I've ever seen (diaper hanging out the bottom). Too cute!
