Is it just me or is this kid freaking ginormous? The day Ike showed up Zeb tripled in size (or so it seems). I can't believe how big this kid is! Lately his favorite spots have been Ike's swing and Ike's carseat. Thank heavens he hasn't attempted sitting in either while occupied by the little one. He is still so good about Ike and exhibits no signs of jealousy or anger towards him or me- except at church. Nursery has become a NIGHTMARE. I can only hope this is a short lived phase. It's ridiculous. This kid works himself into such a frenzy that he can't breathe. He does that gaspy breath thing that happens when you cry too hard. I'd feel sort of bad for him except for the fact that he has no problem with nursery or us being absent during the music time and bubble time- it's just during the other stuff he doesn't like. He isn't afraid of us being gone or leaving- he's manipulating us and he knows it. Today Kent sat out with him in the foyer on the couch and told him he could either sit there with Kent all day or go into nursery by himself. He chose to sit with Kent- except when he saw the kids cross the hall into music time. He followed them in and when it ended, started screaming until kent took him out. Grrrrr. What do we do with this rascal?

He is big! Just looking at Ike's pictures makes Andrew look like a giant too! And the nursery thing will work itself out. As a nursery leader, I would say to do a tough love and leave and let him cry. Talk to your leaders and see if they mind.

Oh - he is so stinkin' cute! I love the picture of him in the baby swing. They grow up too fast. I always say that once they hit 4 years - its "buh-bye" anything baby ... and Krystal's nearly there. Zebby might be old enough for a little nursery bribery ... like earning a sticker or something. I have NO freakin' clue. All of my kids struggled with ALL of nursery. The only comfort I can offer is that I know they grow out of it ... and then it's nothin' but nostalgia - haha!

I just wanna cuddle both of your kiddos RIGHT now!! I can't stand it. Thanks for posting so many fun pictures. Your boys are adorable.

Zeb does look like a giant! And at least he looked so cute at church today in his little vest, right? That gotta make up for something.

Having a new baby does make your other babies seem much bigger. I would just keep trying with Zeb and nursery. He will pull through.

This has nothing to do with the aforementioned post, but if you want me to make you a header, email me what color schemes you like, pictures, and what you want it to say. I'll get working on it.
