We sat them at their table the other day. I got the crayons and paper out. That lasted about 5 minutes. At least we tried. They want to eat the crayons. Peyton picks up on coloring very quickly. It is neat to see how each of the kids learn. Ethan can say anything, but still can't figure out how to climb on the couch. Peyton can figure out how to do something on the first try, but doesn't talk much. Sydney is the copycat. She follows the others around watching them play with a toy then takes it from them so she can do what they were doing. She doesn't know how to pick a toy up and use her imagination to play with it. Landon is a mixture of Peyton and Jenna. He is somewhat involved, but not too much. Jenna is our stubborn one. I hope this isn't foreshadowing to the future. She won't do anything we want her to do. It is like she knows she is being stubborn. She just looks at us with her big brown eyes and goes on about her business.
This is a piece of chalk. It was sitting on top of their house they play in. I think it got knocked off one day. I found pieces of chalk throughout the living room one day. I also found pieces in Jenna and Landon's mouths. Landon will eat anything. We were at grandpa Bob and grandma Esther's a month or so ago. Landon had something green in his mouth and I thought it was part of a green bean. They were canning that day. Later we found a cucumber with a big chunk out of it. He had taken a bite. Saturday, they got baths and the boys snuck back into the bathroom. We have to pull the door shut really tight or it won't latch. It was a good 10 minutes before I realized they were missing. I went into the bathroom and they had taken everything out from the drawers and under the sink. Landon had taken a bite out of a new bar of soap with the paper still on it. I guess he liked it because he didn't complain. Oh well, just another day in the life of the Wright Quintuplets!
