We do many things together at home and outside. David and Lam love cooking and eating together. We talk about many things over coffee and tea. We watch our currently favorite detective show Midsomer Murders together when the kids are asleep. We read books side by side either in bed or on the couch and discuss our books. We take care of our children together: Lam would fret too much and David would remind her to relax.
Mommy and Jacob like watching the Little House on the Prairie together, and Daddy and Jacob like reading their Star War Encyclopedia. Jacob and James play well together, except when James hit his big bro on the head with his toys. Many times Jacob and James form a perfect comedy teams like those in The Three Stooges.
David and Lam try to take walks in the park near Jacob’s school when permitted by James and the weather. We try to take Jacob and James out to the park and to the library whenever we can. At the library, James plays and watches other children, Jacob checks out Captain Underpants comic books, and Lam always checks out more books than she actually has the time to read.
Overall, we are all really busy day and night. We hope this phase of James waking up at night will pass and we will only be busy in the daytime.
