Ever since Schroeder was born, the fact that Julian is now a very big boy has become apparent. His favorite activities at this moment are:
1. Putting together his "tractor puzzle" given to him at Thanksgiving by Grammy. It's a thirty piece puzzle that gets dumped out five times a day. He is actually getting really good at putting it together on his own, and we are working on him cleaning it up on his own.
2. Playing transformers. My parents bought him "Bumblebee" and Gabe "Blur" when they were here last week. Yesterday at Kohl's he was standing on a bench, hands in the air, screaming "I am Bumblebee and I got you!"
3. Getting "power bombs" from our friend Anthony at church. Anthony attends our community group and he is all too willing to place Julian on top of his shoulders and drop him while yelling "POWER BOMB".
Julian is happy to be a big brother to his very cute baby Schroeder. He'll ask to hold him and after two seconds declares that the baby is too heavy and needs to be removed. He is also very forward in letting me know when I must put Schroeder down in order to get him a toy or food. Hey, I would rather him be direct than act out if he feels neglected.
