But the fun didn't stop there. It was such a great visit. My mom had the opportunity to spend quality time with each of the boys individually, and on a couple of occasions I snuck away to hang out with friends and participate in uninterrupted conversation! But back to Nina and Anders...
One of their activities Anders especially enjoyed was making pigs in a blanket. Look at that concentration!
He was so excited, talking on and on about his piggies, and he could barely wait to let them cool before diving in to gobble a few.
We've been exercising our creative muscles other ways too.
A couple of grandparent birthdays are coming up, so we've had our paints out daily. I've given up on paintbrushes. Q-tips are fun to use and make cleanup a little simpler.
And we spent one morning transforming a large cardboard box (from a recent chair purchase) into a cozy house for Anders. He tells me those yellow blobs are butterflies by the way.
He especially loved giving Andreas the grand tour once he got home from work.
Aksel loved watching them play peek-a-boo!
Speaking of Aksel, he's been busy too. He's learning to eat solids and developing his opinions. He had a strong aversion to carrots, but seems to like sweet potatoes and zucchini just fine. He also cut his first two teeth this week! He had one terribly difficult night but has been a champ for the most part. He's been working on his fitness too, improving his crawling skills as well as sitting upright.
I love these brothers!
