Mr. Independent

I am happy to report that the terrible twos stage seems to have taken a break for now, after just a few days. Hooray! Our new phase is "independence." The picture is from this morning (note the bed head) when after I changed Jackson from his PJs into his clothes for the day. He decided that he wanted to put his pajama shirt back on (new Toy Story pajamas that he's been loving to wear lately!) and tried for quite awhile to get his sweatshirt off. This was as far as he got, but refused to let me help him. So after about 10 or 15 minutes (and a cold arm) he humbled himself and said "Help Mama." By this point, he was fine with leaving the sweatshirt on and saving the PJs for later. I am excited that he loves the PJs though - one of those great random finds at the Disney Store for $3!! We've also watched the Toy Story movie 3 times this week!And just to clarify on the last post...if you want to try it but aren't crafty, don't be scared! :) You can make cookies or do whatever! I really wasn't expecting to get out of making something quite this easily!!

I just love watching the kids grow and develop personalities. Carter is also in this phase of doing things himself, which can take hours. I just let it go until he asks for help. I figure it keeps him busy.
