YEP...these boys are ON THE MOVE!

Well I knew the day was nearing, but these boys are now officially on the move. They have to be contained inside of something if I plan to leave the room they are playing in. This morning I had James playing on the bathroom floor with me while I was trying to get ready for the day, I heard clanging in the living room that sounded like it was coming from the wrought iron candle holder on the marble fireplace, however Jenna was suppose to be upstairs in her bed napping and John David was snuggled in his carseat sound asleep last I checked, so I turned the corner and found John David turned upside down UNDER his carseat...all I could see was one little arm reaching for the candle holder and yanking it back and forth..CLANG, CLANG, CLANG
So by the time I retrieved JD from under his carseat and brought him back to the bathroom so I could finish drying my hair, I found James Daniel under my bed!!!!!! I am about to become busier than I ever thought possible! We are currently discussing turning the dining room into the BOYS ONLY room and move the girls' playroom downstairs. OH dear I need someone to come buy my house!

That's EXACTLY what we've done! The dining room is the "babies' playroom" (gated at both doorways) and the old playroom is the "big boys playroom". For now, it works great! I do think, at some point, I'll want my house back, but for now, I am happy to have everyone safe and CONTAINED! :)

Cute! Just look at having two mobile babies as additional training for your next marathon. :)

The fun is just beginning!! It is definitely a new world once they become mobile!

Thanks for your comment and visit to my so neglected blog! I've gone back and read a few of your very early posts, and have to say that I'm so regretful of not blogging while inpatient. I actually didn't know of any or read any at that time....tried to journal a bit, but that was neglected out of fear of losing the boys. You are also one of the very few mono boy mamas I know of - we are special!!!

I need to start updating my site - your mobile boys and this story of trying to get dressed makes me 2 1/2 my guys are giving me a run for my money!! I'm lucky now days to get a shower....disgusting but true!

SO GLAD you commented, so that I can follow your precious boys and family in this magnificent adventure!
