Milestones For The Boys

Firstly, Aaron Turned Four!

Four years old isn't all that old at all but since the baby arrived, I find myself treating Aaron more and more like a grown up. In a way, I feel like I'm missing all his cuteness as a little boy because I've put all this responsibility of being quiet, helpful and independent on him. I need to cut back on that.

Instead of a birthday party this year, we went to the park for a birthday picnic.

Poor little guy, he's had a post all to himself in previous years but now he has to share. Thankfully he has, so far, been more than willing to share with Adrian. I love it that they love each other so much right now.

Aaron knows very well it was his fourth birthday but he's picked up that silly habit from school of putting two fingers up when taking photos.

Secondly, Tooth Number 1 for Adrian popped up about two weeks ago. Once again, here is a photo that I would have liked to have shown you all while we were still in Ipoh. :

It looks like he's a 'single teether' as opposed to Aaron who had all his teeth erupt in pairs. The not so funny thing is that Adrian seems to have a much harder time teething. He gets the full range of symptoms from fevers to runny noses as well as runny poo. And since he only gets them one at a time its going to last twice as long!

cute boys. Don't worry about Aaron. Learning to share attention is part of growing up. Younger brother Adrian will never know anything other than sharing attention. That is part of what shapes the character of first child vs second child.

Bummer about the teething...that's as tough on mama as it is on the little guy.

Our next-to-youngest grandchild, Leya, turns 3 today, so I'm in the hooray-for-birthdays mode. Best wishes to Aaron and to Adrian. Hope he goes easy on you with the teething while nursing...

Better sharing a post than having his own blog. He'll be there to soon.

OMG haven't seen you or visited you in ages.
Happy birthday to Aaron , he has grown so much and so handsome. 4yr olds are so much fun and I do enjoy their independence. It is good for them .
Adrian is adorable , I do miss having babies *sigh* for all their cutest smiles.
