Books, Nuggets, and Paint

Paxton and Porter have fought over toys ever since Porter could move. Lately, they haven't been fighting over books. Paxton will start looking at a book and Porter will scoot closer and closer. I always watch to see how Pax will handle the intrusion and he always smiles at Porter and engages him in the book. 
He points out pictures to Porter and asks Porter where things are and tries to get Porter to say's completely adorable. 

After reading time yesterday, we met our friends at Chick-Fil-A for lunch. Paxton was so excited when he saw Ben that he ran across the restaurant screaming and they hugged for about a minute. Then they walked around holding hands...
Porter walked all over the play place and he and Emeline tried really hard to climb up with the big kids. 
Porter fell asleep in the car on the way home and slept through his diaper change. 
After naps, Paxton helped me make some fingerpaint. He has been begging to paint lately, so we did. 
Porter decided to paint with a cracker...
He didn't last long because he hated being dirty. 
Paxton surprised me with how focused and methodical he was. He would use one color at a time and paint a big section of his paper and then move on the the next color. He sat and painted for about 45 minutes and only stopped then because it was dinner time. That's a long time for this busy kid to be focused on one activity!
