Has anyone seen my children?!

I left for three days - just THREE days and I came home to find three crazy children who had already changed in that short time! 

Wyatt had started talking a ton more.  They went on a drive and he was pointing and labeling everything he saw:  mailbox, fence, driveway, etc.  He was also trying to repeat whole phrases from the movies he watches.  

Then, he pulled the ultimate trick on Paige - (well, at least he tried to!)  Paige left a sprite on the counter and Wyatt got a sip of it (bad Paige!)  He wanted more where that came from so a few minutes later he took Paige by the hand and took her into his room (as if to get rid of her) which he has done before on occasion.  She knew what he was up to and went out of the room.  Since that didn't work, he took her into the bathroom and sat her on the toilet.  He realized that she was on to him and she was faster than him and could get to the sprite before he did.  (Paige had already disposed of said Sprite by this point, but I guess he didn't know it)  So - what did punky little Wyatt do?  As Paige is sitting there on the toilet he says to her:  "Pants off" and tries to pull her pants down!  He was trying to get as much time as he could to get the sprite and figured that would buy him a little extra time!  What a silly SMART kid!

Brody has been working on situps and pushups and he is getting better fast!  Before we moved here I tried to get Brody to do situps.  He was supposed to be able to do 31 situps in 1 minute for his age level.  He only did 4.  But now, only a short time later he is doing 34!  He did it today and I recorded it, but didn't think watching one whole minute of situps would really entertain you. But I did film the pushups!  He didn't really have the upper body strength to do push ups and we have been working on them and Paige must have worked a lot this weekend because I came home and he was doing them awesome! 

Hazel is still crazy Hazel, but she is growing up so fast.  She is smart and helpful (most of the time) and loves her Brothers.  She made a habit of sleeping with Paige while I was gone and now wants Paige to come sleep with her every night :)  Before I left she didn't want me to go.  When I got back I asked her if she missed me and she said "Yes, but I wasn't sad and I played with Paige and she made me chili and I ate it all gone and I even ate all my broccoli!"  Thanks Paige!

Below are some pictures and videos of my ever changing children that Paige took over the weekend.
It is not even 10:00 and I am going to bed.  I am still not caught up on sleep from 4 years ago so I am going to try to get an extra hour every day... I wonder how many years that will take me?  :)


Strong man Brody!
Pirate Hazey!

I really hope Paige didn't let Hazel drive....

One of Wyatt's favorite thing to do is go on slides.  Paige found a new park while I was gone so they all played and had fun!

Holy Handsome and Happy!  What a darling little boy - seriously -I love him!

Bro being cool :)

At the park (with Hazel in her Pajamas - really Paige?) Wyatt kept taking Paige's sunglasses and wearing them :)
Wyatt is obsessed with drawing houses.  He always draws them exactly the same with the same colors.  We have worked on this for a year and he does NOT like when we try to get him to change colors.  He drew this one all by himself while I was gone and Paige said she didn't even have to tell him to switch colors!  The house is usually always blue, flower purple, etc.  Good Job Wyatt! 

Here is Wyatt riding a tricycle at the sensory gym.  We tell him if he wants to play in the room with the trains, he has to ride his bike into there.  This time he is already right by the room and we try to get him to go around a bit, but as you can see, he has other plans....
