He's having a really, really hard time getting off the bottle. :( He'll drink juice from a cup, but not milk. Right now he's got a bit of a cold, but once that's gone, I'm going cold turkey on getting off the bottle!
He's FINALLY gotten interested in reading books and will sit still long enough for me to read a few books to him -- we've been working on this for months while Madeleine is in school.
He's discovered chocolate -- he found a bowl of m&ms at mimi's house and we found him CRAMMING them in his mouth with a very proud look on his face! Ha!
He's really starting to talk more. He can say "light" and point to it, "uh-oh" when he drops something, bye-bye, and "eyes." He's started making a mmmmmm sound to Madeleine, so I think he's trying to say her name.
Finally, this morning, he got another tooth! It's a BIG one in the back of his mouth --- a molar, maybe? Hopefully, this will end the middle of the night crying he's been doing! :)
I found him in his room, looking at books yesterday.

He knows where I keep his new favorite snack and he was just helping himself! Ha! I stood around the corner and watched him get them out of the bag and begin stuffing his face! Guess my boy was hungry (after eating a cheeseburger & fries at McDonalds for lunch).

Our next stop was Mimi and Grandads's house! This is Madeleine's absolute favorite place to go! It was great to get out and do some shopping -- with some help! :) Madeleine also got a new Backyardigans DVD that she loves and Harrison can now say "grandad" VERY clearly! We all hated to leave Saturday night, but I think Matt was starting to miss us.
So, this week we've just been playing at home. Yesterday I found Madeleine in Harrison's room, playing storytime with his animals. You can see she's got them set up and she was reading to them -- just like preschool.
Finally, I took this picture last night. Can you find the kids amongst all the toys? :)

Also, Harrison is walking everywhere! He walks more than he crawls now & it's so cute to see him toddling along! :)
