Jake stopped napping around the time he turned 3. He will lay down after a busy day, but he won't actually go lay down in his room and nap. And now Asher is hitting the "no nap zone". The things I once could do when they were napping is no more. But, we have adjusted and I have figured out activities they can do to stay quite and rest. Asher will nap from time to time... just not every day. Bedtimes are usually around 7/730pm. So, I at least I know they get a full night of rest. And it's still early enough for Grant and I to enjoy a little alone time too.
The boys started sharing a room after lots of conversations about it. We have a 4 bedroom house, but they want to be in the same room. Jake has his full size bed, and Asher has his toddler bed. Although they fall asleep next to each other in Jake's bed. We move Asher to his own bed, after he is fast asleep. I figure this would be the time before they want their space from each other. They are very close. They go to the same school (one grade apart), they play the same sports (as of now), like the same cartoons and toys (which of course means buying 2 of the same thing), and even have the same friends (they do have their own little buddies in their classrooms though). I try not to lump them together, this is all their doing. When they aren't together they're asking for each other.
We just got back from 2 weeks in Boise. I love going to Boise for so many reasons. I absolutely love it there. But, now... I love it even more. Seeing how much my boys love it. This was a special trip. The older my boys get, the more we enjoy traveling, and seeing things through their eyes. It's truly amazing.
We celebrated Halloween together, and took in real fall weather. Living in Southern California the weather rarely gets all that cold. It was a nice change.
Here are my little Ninja Turtles.
Another day of visiting and pushing GG around.
