This and That – Friedman Boys Edition

Now time for one of my classic this and that blog posts featuring the Friedman Boys! Thanks for tuning in!

First of all, let me say how much I love that we have finally gotten Carver over the hump of being unbearably cranky if he doesn’t nap all the way to falling asleep at 7 pm when he doesn’t nap! YAY! Now if only we could get him to sleep in past 6 am…

Now let me start by saying, I love my husband dearly and he is such a good dad but uhm… this happened the other day. I came to pick Carver up from daycare and I was like WHAT THE HECK IS CARVER WEARING!

I usually lay out outfits for Carver and Gannon and then Craig just picks one for him to wear but apparently I was slacking because this is what those two came up with. I asked Craig about it and he said “They are both stripes and they both have the same colors! He just looks like he’s going to go golfing!” HA!

Speaking of Carver, I got him this shirt for preschool πŸ™‚ Thank you Etsy!

The boys have been getting along better lately and playing nicely. They love to play a’struction in the driveway with the rocks. Carver loves to boss Gannon around and Gannon is learning to stick up for himself.

Carver’s best friend Brody was over again today and they had a blast! They will both be in the same class at preschool this year too. Brody is about to be a big brother and we can’t wait! He’s such a good influence on Carver. Carver and Brody are only 2 weeks apart!

Can you believe that this is actually physical therapy for Gannon? Gannon’s joints, muscles, and connective tissue is all very loose. It’s hard for him to stabilize himself especially on moving and uneven surfaces so we practice swinging! Believe it or not, it takes core strength to stabilize yourself on a swing.

Another exercise we do is bouncing and rolling on an exercise ball – Gannon hates it because he feels so unstable. When we go visit Lisa at physical therapy he sits on a vibrating machine and tries to stabilize himself to build his core strength and make him more solid instead of fluid.

And now, like Gannon, I’m off to bed. I work the next two nights, Carver starts preschool on Thursday, our shower is getting tiled tomorrow, I’ve got the weekend off for once, we have no plans as per usual! Tomorrow I’ll be making lots of checklists for Craig and Carver like this one:

    I laughed when saw the way Carver was dressed. My first thought was that Carver had dressed himself! ? That’s the way our kids looked when Dad dressed them!?

    If I swing for awhile does that mean I don’t need to exercise???
