Nelmo is growing like crazy. It's weird to see him in the clothes at 3 weeks old that Chico wore as a 3 month old. He's our big boy! I LOVE this picture of him:
I know I've mentioned this before, but Chico LOVES Nelmo. He gets the sweetest most tender look on his face when he looks at him. Chico laid down on my bed next to Nelmo and I ran to get my camera because it was so cute. Here is the series of (badly taken) pictures.
And this next picture just cracks me up.
We needed to give our ward an updated picture of us for our ward directory so we went in our yard and took this with our tripod. We were surprised Chico smiled so good for our tripod!
Speaking of our yard, our neighbors have goats. There is a Mom a Dad and a new baby. Chico is a bit obsessed with them and usually loves them. But about a week ago he was petrified of them, couldn't walk up to our door without screaming and crying in fear. He even was having nightmares about them. We've convinced him that goats are nice now, but man that was a weird phase. How could he be scared of this cute little thing?
Okay, I guess they are pretty weird looking... So anyway the other day the baby goat somehow got stuck on the wrong side of the fence and the goats were freaking out. I think we can hear the goats better than their owners so Brent went out there and picked up the baby goat and walked around the corner to the neighbor's house and put the goat back. During that time the Mom and Dad were so scared for the baby, it was awesome to see them wanting to protect their baby. It was also awesome to see Brent holding a baby goat in his arms! It's big but surprisingly light Brent said.
Enough about goats. :) Back to our kiddos. We swaddle Nelmo in blankets when he sleeps (so he's swaddled probably 20 hours of the day). The other day Chico wanted to get wrapped in blankets too, so Brent obliged and we just had to get a picture of them next to each other. I know Nelmo looks precarious at the edge of the couch but we had them immobilized because we're pretty much pros at swaddling if I do say so myself.
