On Sunday morning, Melissa phoned and asked me if I was coming over to see the boys. I was happy to oblige. I love Griffyn and I have only seen Tarryn once before.
When I got there, Griffyn was just having a snack. A Tim Hort*ons timbit - the old fashioned kind with no glaze or sugar. Melissa is very good with him and doesn't allow him to have candy or a lot of sugar.
Griffyn is not only walking, but running and has been for some time. It's amazing how fast they grow. He is cutting teeth and likes to chew on his finger. Notice his tiger on the coffee table. He has several of these animals and loves them all.
Tarryn loves laying on the floor and watching all the things above him. I forget what these are called, but I remember Brandon having one. Both he and Jordan loved it. They are good entertainment for infants. Tarry looks at everything already. He's discovering the world.Well, Tarryn has been fed and is out like a light. I'm not sure how Melissa got so lucky but both of these boys are good kids. Griffyn obeys commands most of the time. He did get a one minute time-out while I was there for opening the drawers on Michelle's desk. Of course he is curious but Melissa doesn't let him away with anything. She is very gentle in her speaking tone and just says no, no. If Griffyn doesn 't obey after being told a couple of times, it's time out and he is learning.
Brandon was very good with the boys. He held and burped Tarryn and read Griffyn several stories over the weekend. On Saturday Griffyn crawled into his lap to listen him read. I wish I had seen that. I bet Brandon was ecstatic, though the on ly indication of this would have been a grin.
Jordan wanted to hold Tarryn and have his picture taken. He had some fun with both boys. Brandon didn't want his picture taken at the time, so I didn't force him. Melissa was teaching him how to do something on the computer.
I enjoyed the visit with all the kids. I held Griffyn and he offered to share his snack and his drink with me. I think Melissa is doing an excellent job with these boys who are only a year and one month apart. It can't be easy taking care of a 15 month old and a 2 month old.
As you read this, I am away with Brandon and Mom. We are going up north to see the autumn colors and Brandon and I are going to do a bit of fishing. I will be back Wednesday, but not sure what time. I have scheduled this to publish at 12:01 AM and hope it works.
Enjoy your week and enjoy the sights, sounds and fragrances of the season. ~Blessings, Mary~
