Mariners Fan Appreciation Day

Mariners Fan Fest was a blast. We were able to sit in the visitors dugout just like the players. A highlight for both boys was getting to run the bases. In preparation for the day Cooper was very hesitant to go on the field. He was really worried that there would be players on the field and we would be hit by a ball. He insisted we had to sit in the seats only. When we finally got to the stadium he really didn’t want to go on the field, but finally warmed up and had a blast once he saw there were no players around… Playing catch with his boys on the Mariners field was a highlight for Rob. It looks like our boys both have pretty good arms so it will be interesting to see if either end up enjoying playing baseball as they get older. Our little Felix. Hmm, we will have to try a family photo with the Mariners Moose in a couple of more years. The boys were definitely not fans this time around.

23 Months Old

This smile and look says it all. So much personality and so silly at 23 months. Nicholas is obsessed with the “airplane lawnmower” whenever we go to the airport he is quick to get his hands on it. He loves to get his own water and drink from an open cup. As you can see from the water on the floor, it is still a work in progress. Nicholas peeled his first orange by himself this month. He did it by beating it against the table until part of the skin cracked and he could get his finger in it. He was so proud he found a solution to do it all by himself. We are definitely in the “all by myself” stage now. A very exciting time to see him grow and explore daily. Racing with Cooper post bath and jammies is a highlight of Nicholas’ evening routine.

Brother Buddies

Cooper and Nicholas are at such a fun age. Cooper’s imagination is always going and Nicholas is absorbing it all. They love to play games together. They negotiated to have their first hot chocolate today and I just love their post drink chocolate smiles. They love being outside. Here they came up with a game to see who can reach the sky. Side note, when Cooper is wearing these orange sweatpants that means he dressed himself, they are his favorite and go to pants. Dual gates, no one can get by this crew.
