This is my Everett

The following pictures were taken over this past week, when I had my phone camera on me. Believe me, there are many more similar situations that this little turkey finds himself in and I don't have my camera. Everett keeps me on my toes, that's for sure!

1. I ran upstairs to brush my teeth (imagine that). No, actually, not even to brush my teeth. To grab my toothbrush and toothpaste and run back downstairs to brush my teeth in the kitchen sink (I know these little trouble makers too well). In that short window of time, Everett managed to push his booster seat over FROM THE OTHER ROOM, climbed on top of it and when I first saw him, he had his leg draped over the baby gate ready to launch himself. I swear I was gone no more than 20 seconds.

2. The boys were eating nicely in their booster seats together (on the floor because we'd had a house showing and therefor took them off of the kitchen chairs for a few days)

See how nicely they're eating together?

Anyway, I took Everett out of his seat first, took his tray over to the sink and then turned back when I heard laughing (you know, that kind of laughing that tells you something is going on).

There he was, laughing and jumping on top of Carter's tray with Carter also laughing hysterically.

3. This is classic and I should know better by now. I start unloading dishes, get momentarily interrupted, turn back around and there's Everett, ceasing the moment.

This is my Everett. So curious, so mischievous but in the most cheerful, gregarious way.

Your smile and laugh are so contagious, Everett.

And you still have that laid back vibe we noticed when you were just a newborn, talked about in this post.

Case in point, how you so often ride in the choo choo wagon.

Feet propped up and enjoying the ride!

Keep up that curiousity, big smile and laid back attitude. It will take you far little man.

Can you PLEASE explain to me why these boys need PT? Other than the PT's love them so much they cannot bear to discharge them, obviously.

haha Kate! They all had torticollis to varying degrees. It was most noticeable with Carter (although we still didn't pick up on for a while). He was the one most smushed in my belly too. For a while the torticollis was driving their motor patterns in subtle and not so subtle ways. But, happy to say that they were all discharged last week! They made great progress through PT, especially Carter. I keep meaning to do a post explaining this, so that other families are aware of what to look for too.

That's what I was thinking when you had mentioned earlier that Carter was in PT (being the geek I am, I went back and looked through pictures). I did not pick it up in the other two. Sophia also had torticollis, which was from her delivery and took me a while to pick up on. They do look so, so great! Time to batten down the hatches!
