4 Years. 2 Weeks.

bedtime for preschoolers  tucking in the boys for bed

We’re two weeks into being FOUR already, and I’m already quite fond of it.

I love how their personalities are shining more than ever. They are confident (sometimes even cocky) little beings.

I love that they use little intelligent phrases like “Well, actually” and “I’m sure”.

I love that their sense of humors seem to grow more every day.  They’ve learned to pull our legs, tell funny stories, and be sarcastic.  It’s a “laughathon” around here… you never know what they are going to come up with next.

I love all the things they can do even better: kicking, catching a ball, gaining independence in daily activities, confidence, carrying on lengthy conversations, their incredible memories…  I see changes in them weekly.

I love that they are loving each other as brothers even more.  Today they sat and looked at a book all together for 20 minutes, just chatting away, flipping through pages together.  They make up games daily. The have huge imaginations and act out things together.  Having brothers has never been better!

I love that bedtime is getting a tad easier (at least for this week)!

I love thinking of all the fun adventures we have ahead of us this year.

I love living this miracle of FOUR every single day: FOUR healthy, growing, surviving, happy, FOUR year olds.

    I totally know what you mean. It’s so much fun to watch your babies grow and become more independent! My 3-year-old loves to say, “Sure, that’s a good idea,” instead of “Yes.” It’s the cutest thing ever!

      Crystal – my boys say “I know a very good idea” when they want to do something and it CRACKS ME UP. Love this age! Enjoy!

    God Bless You

    What a fun bundle of fun you have there, times four! 🙂

  9. These FOUR blessings are FOR you! Couldn’t resist. 😉 Four is so different than three, and a healthy distance from two. It gets easier. 😉

  10. I totally know what you mean! My 4 year old twins just amaze me some days with what they say and do….and probably even more amazing is their 2 your old lil brother who THINKS he’s 4 also…and seems so mature for a 2 year old. He does and says so much already that I don’t remember them doing at this age (I realized just now that he is the same age as they were when he was born…).

    Isn’t it amazing?? what a ride….

  11. Oh I love it! You will love all that four has to offer — it’s like coming out of hostage negotiations and getting a seat by the pool. They will grow up so much this year, and it will happen right before your eyes. Enjoy, enjoy 🙂
