Over the weekend (last weekend that is), Reid's friend, Peyton, made several works of art that she wanted to distribute to each person in the Grasshopper class on Monday when she returned to school.  So she stood at the door on Monday morning (with the check-in clipboard in hand) to make sure each Grasshopper received one.  Here's the catch - every piece of artwork said the same thing - "Peyton Reid" or "Reid Peyton."  Haha!
If you look closely at this picture, you can see their names at the bottom of the page.  She was so proud to show "Reid's mommy" her work of art.  Little did she know, her sweet mom had already sent me a picture of it via text.  :)

Two more teeth brushing lovers!
Dad said to Reid, "It's a Reid Sandwich….mommy and daddy are the bread and you're the meat."  And Reid quickly replied, "I'm NOT a piece of meat, daddy!"
He was enamored by his first ever band-aid.
"Hmmm, let's see what she'll say if I do this."

Explorer Jack

On Monday, February 9, 2015, Jack became an Explorer at LHCCEC.  Yep, that's right, just Jack!

Jack was promoted to the Explorer's class in Room 211, and his teachers are Ms. Twila and Ms. Hadzira.  

This marks the first time they have officially been separated from each other (for any significant length of time, that is).  Since Jack is "older," he took the first opening in the Explorer's class.  Of course, the next opening will go to Hunter which should be within a month or so.  

So far, our independent twin-littles have done great in their respective classrooms!

I snapped this photo the first day I arrived to pick him up.  He and Christopher were cleaning up their toys.

Unfortunately, the only thing that would have captured the tenderness of this moment would have been a video, but alas, all I got were a few photos.  I picked up Hunter from class first and put him in the stroller.  As I carried Jack from his new classroom to set him in the stroller, he started pointing (very excitedly!) at Hunter and saying "bubu, bubu, bubu!" Translation - brother, brother, brother! 
And then he started waving at him.  This is Hunter's sweet and tender eye squint as if to say "I love you too, bubu" but without ever taking his thumb out of his mouth.  Ha!
I wish the pictures did this encounter better justice.  Jack was just so happy and excited to see his brother!
That's a lot of May birthdays!

"Take a picture of my silly face, mom!"
Of our three boys, Hunter is the master utensil user!

Someone found his wubanub from when he was an itty bitty baby.

Learning from big brother.

We're playing "name that body part."

So many fun things at the Meierhofer house!

Uncle Adam's ribs were a hit!
