No Tracks For You

Easton is the best big brother in the world except when it comes to sharing his toys. I knew the day would come when he wouldn't love her so much; and that happened when she learned to crawl and could get to his stuff. All she wants are his trains, and if it's his, he doesn't want her to have it, but ESPECIALLY his train tracks.Anytime she gets close to them, Easton cringes and screams "Mom get her, get her!!!"

It's my job to then move her and hook her up with some toys to keep her busy.

But that doesn't work. She knows what she wants.

VICTORY!!!!


Defeat.

Then Dad saves the day and all is well again.

Hahaha! I love the "VICTORY!" and "Defeat" pictures. :) Very good picture story. Easton looks so cute in his church clothes (I'm assuming). Little boys are just so studly in khakis, button-up shirt and vest.

Same thing here! Jackson would also say, "Mommy, can you get Bear!!" And now that Baron likes trains too, they fight over who gets which trains all the time and it drives me crazy!

p.s. Your kids are really really really cute! I LOVE Carly's cute little leggings and outfit!

I LOVE this post- cause I know exactly what you're talking about. I LOVE Carly's cute little outfit with the leggings, she's so stylish! I love how you're documenting this whole story and probably laughing at Easton's "Defeat"!

Okay, the leg warmers too adorable! I love the VICTORY & DEFEAT pictures. My Jay felt the same about Ally...he totally adored her until she could crawl and only wanted his stuff! MEMORIES...love it!!!

You are such a good story teller, and with pictures!? Wow! That was so cute and I also love Carly's leg warmers, they rock!

This is too funny. It's exactly what is happening at our house most days as well. Crawling is just kind of a weird phase--they're always into things you don't want them to be into AND their knees are always dirty. sigh.

Sometimes when Owen is in a happy mood, we'll pretend Henry is the monster of the rails, and then he doesn't mind so much when the track gets broken up. But most of the time, he's also just yelling at me to make him stop. love it.

Christi said...

Love it!!! She is going to have a fight on her hand for those tracks!
Love that last picture too.

Jenni said...

Melanie said...

That was super fun Em! I love hearing your stories!

Megan and Greg said...

That is hilarious. I was laughing the whole way thru. Your kids are dressed so super cute!

Jill said...

LOVE the striped baby legs!

The good news is, Easton yells for help instead of just taking matters into his own hands and whacking Carly himself. We had to work on that one at my house.

Carol and Bruce said...

Such a cute post!

Meg said...

Love the title! Hilarious.

And I've been there. It gets easier. Console your little guy with that.

Lani said...

These pics are TOO CUTE!! I love Carly's determination! Babies have such one track minds! I love her up on her tip toes in the middle of the trains. Sorry Easton it's only going to get worse! That's what being a big brother is all about! Can wait to see them!

Alifinale said...

Love her dress! Easton cracks me up. The defeated picture is classic. I love it.

Teresa, mom, Deitz, Aunt Dee Dee said...

Love this post. Good job dad! Cute little outfit that Carly has on, love the leg warmers, was she born in the 80's?

The best is the "victory" and "defeat" pictures. Way to capture the moment.

Tanner and Camrie are the very same!! When it comes to the trains and the tracks, they are Tanner's and are not to be touched by anyone else. Doing so causes great commotion and tantrums by the older of the 2 kids. Personally, I secretly think Camrie knows what she is doing and loves it!!
