It's in the Genes or should I say Jeans?

Gavin must have read about cousin Adie and her pantlessness(I think I just typed a Darcy word because spell check denied it). I was getting Drew dressed the other day and I turned around and he was waving them over his head and he was so excited as if to say "Look what I did" because of course I had just put them on him. Silly boy! It must be in the genes. Can't wait to swap ideas with you, Adelyn.

Busy Boys

The Greene boys have been busy since last time I blogged. Let's start with the oldest. Andrew was home for almost 2 weeks and we enjoyed having him home with us. He got so much done on the yard and hauled a ton (literally) of rock. He also planted several trees. (I didn't know how expensive trees were because we had trees in TN). Then, with the help of some wonderful friends he got the sod down. So now we have grass and by the time we get back from IN we will be able to play on it! We still have some more landscaping to do and put in the fence and then even Harp will finally be able to enjoy the back yard.

While Andrew was off we also went to Walla Walla, WA. It was a nice little town and only and hour away. We took a walking tour of Walla Walla which has some of the oldest houses in WA. The boys also got to go swimming for the first time. They weren't to sure about it at first and then they were splashing and laughing and having a great time.

It was a nice little get away and it was the first time we stayed over night somewhere with the boys. Mom and Dad were exhausted after the little trip.
As far as what the little Greenes are up to, they are moving everywhere. I am having a hard time keeping up with them. Gavin is pulling up on everything. Drew had invented his own form of crawling so he is into everything. He has never liked his belly so he scoots on his butt and somehow uses his feet and arms. He is pretty fast at it. The wood floors help too. He also pulled up the other day and was so proud of himself. I was so proud too. These picture were taken this morning while I was posting.
We are all looking forward to heading to IN next week (wow time flies). I feel like I have a million things to do between now and then so there may not be a posting for a while. I will definitely post pictures from our big trip and Andrew and I at the half marathon. So, I will try to keep you posted (pun intended).

It's official!

It's official, the boys are 10 months old and we have a crawler! The boys are 10 months old today! Gavin is now crawling EVERYWHERE! He still tends to do the army crawl, but he is getting up on all fours more often. Just yesterday he figured out how to get from crawling to his bottom. So Mommy has to stay on her toes now. I do have to say he is a much more content little boy now that he can go get what he wants. Drew really has no desire to be on his belly. He rolls around to get where he want to go (from belly to back), but he has not put it all together yet. He does like to scoot on his bottom on the kitchen floor (hardwood) to get where he wants to go when he is there. I am really not pushing the issue even though Andrew is. Getting used to chasing one has been hard enough.
There he goes!

These pictures were taken just this morning!

Daddy is going to be home next week so we are excited about that! He does have a big task ahead of him though in the yard so I hope we get to see him some of the break. I took pictures of the pile of rock he has to haul to the back yard wheelbarrow by wheelbarrow to the new flower beds and bean shaped bed around the house. I hope he will break down and rent a tractor. The pile of rock is 2 dump trucks full. That is a lot of rock, I forget how many thousands of pounds. At least the weather is getting better. You can see the new curbing that was done last week.

For those of you that may be curious, Andrew and I both did our 10 miles last Saturday. We ran it separately because it was too cold to take the boys out. That is a long way! I did pretty well except for some reason I got stuck taking Harp and he tripped me on the last mile and I still have the skinned up hands to show for it. At least no one was around to see me fall. Andrew did well up until the last mile too. Now he is dealing with what we think is an IT band issue. He ran today and he said it felt alright but he doesn't really want to push it. I guess I could have added this to the official list. It is officially one month from tomorrow that we run in Indy. Time flies! We only run 7 miles tomorrow. Listen to me ONLY 7. Before this training the most I had ever run was 6.2. It is all downhill from here until the big day! Andrew and I laughed the last time we ran together. He said just think this time last year you could not have even run 6 feet. He was right, I had to laugh at remembering my Fred Flinstone feet that started right about now. Have a blessed weekend!
