Cubby and I checked out some contemporary art in Lincoln. He enjoyed this one exhibit, a leather sofa where I nursed him twice, the most. My favorite was an amazing piece where the image was made out of price stickers!
We had a fun lunch with my dear friend and her two little ones.

Cubby is definitely saying MAMA. Sadly, it is in the context of him crying for me. But it is still so precious!
He had some real tears yesterday when he was stuck in his car seat coming home from the park. Liam vrry helpfully announces, "HE NEEDS MILK! HE NEEDS A DIAPER CHANGE!"
Yes, thank you my sweet, two screaming children have made Mommy feel infinity more sane. The crazy eyes on the T Rex are about where I'm at by dinner time each night.

Chris is working and it's still hot (and someone is still being a pest) so lots of TV watching is the agenda this weekend.
Here's Cubby, figuring out that Pixar is more entertaining than his mother.
Watch "Cubby loves TV already. Uh oh!" on YouTube

Bub, can't you reach the light switch?
I can, but. . . .
Are you nervous because of the dark?
Well, the eye pets are in here.
I was hearing "iPets" and thought this was something that Apple had created, like an iPad. But he meant there were EYES!
The eye pets are under Jacob's bed. Sometimes I see one eye or if they move really fast then I can see two eyes!
Poor little imp. I assured him there was nothing creepy living anywhere in his room but I don't think he was convinced.

We went to eat after this and all was nearly lost when the kitchen forgot to make Liam's dinner. WHAT!? It's a good thing squishy dinosaurs like edema me and lettuce wraps.
Here are Chris and Cubby at the Museum of Science.
The other night, I had both of them in my bed because Liam had a nightmare....or so he says. I know that he's very jealous that Cubby gets to sleep with me so I let him crawl in for a while. I started feeding the baby and I feel this little arm reach across me to start playing with Cubby's hands.
OK, Bub! Back to bed!
Here's the boys at the mall where we spend most of last week as it was too hot to stay home.

Moments later, Bub's sundae ended up on the floor. Naturally, Cubby started crying simultaneously and I'm left to juggle the two sad boys with a rapt audience of 15 fro yo patrons.
Yes, I'd like some AWESOME SAUCE on my replacement sundae please.

We went to the Ecotarium and to lunch with Grandma Cookie today. Both kids were excellent!
Liam got some new dino friends for being an amazing big brother and also for his great work at school.
Today he taught the kids a dinosaur class. Afterwards, a little boy was crying, missing his mom, and Liam went and gave him a high five so he would feel better.
I am so proud to have such a kind little guy who recognized that boys pain.

Get a king-size bed
Place baby in the middle
Say goodbye to your husband for several months
Wrap yourself uncomfortably around baby on alternating sides
Switch every two hours
Suffer back, shoulder and neck pain from being a living teddy bear
..... But just look at him. There has never been a cuter reason to suffer discomfort.
Cubby and I spent the better part of the day at the mall, hiding from the gross weather. He was such a good helper, letting me browse endless clearance racks.
Then, he helped me and Liam make a dinosaur poster and accompanied us all out to dinner.
Now, he's passed out in bed beside me. I can hardly begrudge him the snuggles! He's a hard working baby.
