Our January went by quickly with nothing too exciting going on.  I am still very busy at work, as evidenced by my lack of blog posts, so here are some snippets from January.

Charlie has been going through a rough restaurant phase - twice in the past month he and I have quickly exited a restaurant mid-meal to avoid a meltdown.  We hang out in the car and wait for Daddy and Jack to finish, and sadly, he thinks it's the greatest thing.  Luckily we don't go out much so I don't think we are starting a precedent where he sees this as a reward...
Killing time in the car

Huge whipped cream mess!

Charlie's first bubble bath - he wasn't a huge fan

Jack, Addison and Reghan

The littles: Charlie & Ethan
 We had our families and a couple friends over for Jason's birthday.  Before everyone got there, Jason accidentally left some crazy glue within reach and Charlie got some little dabs on his hand.  Yikes - that could have been bad!!  He wasn't stuck together but certainly didn't like the feel of the crusty parts on his hands.
Chrissy working some magic with nail polish remover.  Good as new!
 The boys needed hair cuts and I asked Jack what he thought about getting a buzz cut, something I've toyed with off and on. He replied that he would rather have a Woody cut.  Guess I needed to explain my question better.  Nevertheless, we decided to wait and try the buzzed look until it's hot outside and stuck with a normal, shorter 'do for now.
New haircuts all around!

Play-doh time!
 We haven't put all of our "little" Legos into our storage shelf yet because it's in Jack's room right now, where it is too easily accessible by Charlie.  Once we have a toy room downstairs, we will get the Legos put away in their respective bins.  In the meantime, Jack has begun sorting various toys.  I went in his room and found all his loveys in the appropriate bins.
White, blue, gray Pound Puppy and red Mickey Mouse (I imagine him putting a little thought  into that one: is it yellow, black or red?)
 Charlie has decided to start hitting.  Usually Jack or I are the recipient and it's a result of him being frustrated or upset by something we've done (or not done).  I have put him in timeout in his room a few times and it is seriously one of the cutest things I've ever seen.  He sits there and stares straight ahead at his curtain until I come back in.
Charlie thinks his big brother is pretty cool and Jack gets a kick out of Charlie these days too.  Here are a couple videos.  Watch how Charlie Man is always imitating his big bro.  Monkey see, monkey do!
That's our January in a nutshell.
