Dargan loves his Lambchop. Will gave it to him at the hospital the day he was born (7-18-06) and he has loved it ever since. Sometimes when I check on him at night, he has his arm wrapped tightly around his lamb. If he gets hurt or upset the first thing he says is 'Lambchop, tee tee'. We have discovered just this month that his 'tee tee' is his name for his blanket. I have a bad feeling that these 2 items will be accompanying us on many trips outside the house from now on........

Our beach trip to Sullivan's Island with Teresa, Chloe & Cille. We must have picked the hottest day of the year to go to the beach - the heat index was 105-115 degrees. The kids had a great time anyway despite the extreme heat. We built sandcastles and played in ankle deep water. Teresa and I overheard someone saying that they had just seen a shark so we steered clear of the ocean. A good time was had by all........

Dargan just had to bring his 'goff" ball with him to the beach.
Boring.... Will says he's bored to tears! To top it off, it's 100% chance of rain today and we have no plans! Dargan is broken out in hives, even more so today than yesterday so I'm afraid to take him very far from home. He first broke out in a rash about 2 weeks ago and it's still lingering on. We just had an oatmeal bath and that seemed to help a bit. The poor child looks like he has the chicken pox.

Will & Dargan have already become such close friends. It's so cute to watch how protective they are of each other. Dargan even has the sympathy cry when Will is hurt and he cries too. We just moved them into the same bedroom this month and did not know what to expect. They quickly became used to having each other in the same room and love waking each other up in the mornings. The combining of all the toys in one room is another story. The room is a complete mess most of the time, but they are getting used to cleaning it up every night before bed.
It's hard to believe Will is starting real big boy school -5K in exactly one week! How did the time go by so fast.... The days have been long and he's been pretty bored, but I am enjoying these last few days with both my boys at home with me. He does say that he is excited about school starting, but I'm sure it's going to take him a while to get used to the long days of staying til 2:40 every day. I got him a new LL Bean backpack for the start of school-it has his initials and a shark on the front. He says he can't wait to try it out on the first day! That day is coming too soon for me.....
Today I set up my blog after a very rowdy playdate with my neighbor and her 2 boys. The boys were crying for popsickles and throwing toys all over the room. Will and Lukas were upstairs destroying one room, while Dargan and Beckman were dripping popsickles all over the floor. After our friends left, Will & Dargan had dinner and took a bath. They had a great time in the bath with lots of bubbles and bath toys. They really surprised me later when they actually helped me pick up the toys that were strewn all over the house. We cleaned up in record time with all 3 of us helping out. I was very proud of them. Dargan has just started saying clean up too.
