Likes & Dislikes

Z - watching his two shows everyday, reenacting Caillou adventures with himself as the main character, playing with play dough, drawing with sidewalk chalk, making mischief, WHY mommy WHY, talking to his (imaginary?) friend Henry
N - using WORDS!!!!!, doing it himself (SELF, mommy, SELF!), "bruffsh"ing his "teef," trying to sleep in big brother's bed, reading books, giving hugs (especially to Z, who is less enthusiastic), instigating with his brother (Z asks a question, N says "NO, Z. NO."  Z hates it!), asking WHY just because Z does, throwing monumental tantrums
Mommy - being able to understand N more often, seeing how far I can go with WHY before resorting to "physics, buddy, physics"

Z - staying inside, staying WITH mommy instead of running off wherever he wants, not having WHY answered every time,
N - being told NO, having someone forget to let him do it SELF
Mommy - having to answer the same WHY multiple times in five minutes (the answer didn't change, child!), tantrums when I didn't understand what N was saying

366 Recap...and on to 365?

So, my very first year of photo-a-day is officially over.  How'd I do?  Well, I didn't actually keep track of how many times I used someone else's photo (for whatever reason), but out of 366 days I had 302.  I haven't checked to see if there's a video I could get a still from for most of those missing 64, but the odds are rather against it (I did check for the first couple of months, and only once did I find a video containing both kids).  The biggest streak was 21 days, in July.  Must have been because we were cooped up in the house during the heat!

Despite the fact that I haven't started posting pictures for 2013, I can already tell you that we're off to an abysmal start.  Most days I haven't been thinking about it, the way I was last year.  But I've started making more of an effort now, so bring on 2013!

Likes & Dislikes

Z - preschool, popcorn, Super Why!, Caillou, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, riding the tricycle around the new house, play-doh, writing stories (illustrated by Mommy), being helpful, picking up the kitty (kitty tolerates), sledding, baking banana bread/muffins, asking WHY, legos, getting his own water from the fridge dispenser, right now he's telling me he likes spinach (I'm dubious)
N - using his vocabulary (even if Mommy doesn't always understand), all things yellow, learning letters (O!), building block toys of all kinds, going to "pa-pa" house, taking turns ("N turns! Z turns! Mommy turns!), ice, apples, pushing brother around on the tricycle, balloons, maow (aka kitty), throwing massive temper tantrums, Mommy time while Z's at school
Mommy - having more room for the boys to play in, seeing them play well together, the excitement in N's face when he's discovering things, having actual conversations with Z, being able to ask Z to do me a favor and have him actually DO it

Z - disappointment (not getting to watch his two shows every day, not going to the playground because he wasted too much time getting his shoes on, etc)
N - not being understood (hey, it took awhile to learn that "lurch" means "shirt"), balloons that don't last forever, being babysat by non-family, bathtime
Mommy - having more room to clean up after the boys, seeing them fight over things, being ignored, getting two kids out the door on time for things
