Little Boys becoming Big Boys

Today mom and I took the boys to the pool. We have been swimming several times this summer, but I have not let Lathan get in the water because of sunburns,(our children received my genes of fair skin), nap time, etc. Today he had already had his morning nap so I decided to let him take a dip. I then realized I did not have any swim diapers for him. So what does any constructive mom do...put him in the only swim diapers we have..(Ethan's). I thought they might be a little big and I could layer them above his regular diapers. Boy was I wrong!!! They actually fit him just fine, without any layering. I find it very interested that children two years apart can wear the same size diapers. Like I said before, I wonder how long it will take LJ (Lathan) to surpass Ethan in size.

Now, on to Ethan's big moment today. He finally decided to ride his bike using the pedals. This may not sound like a big deal to most of you, but Nate and I have been working on this goal for several months. I think Ethan understood that it was a big accomplishment as well..he pointed to the pedals to show me!

We are leaving for Arkansas this weekend to visit my mom's side of the family (they have not seen Lathan yet) and make a stop on the way to see Nate's parents. I will be posting new pictures when we get back!
