The I'm not so sure face

We get this face a lot. It's the "I'm not sure if I should cry or laugh or what" face. He usually does it right before the fake cry. You parents know what I mean....

balloon time

Around 16-17 months old. Just playing around with a balloon. Amazing how much time a balloon can buy, huh?

Jackson has turned into quite the sleepyhead lately. He loves to stay up later than bedtime, but then never wants to get up in the mornings. At least he comes by it honestly!

This is another post that's rather late in coming, but I now have a kindergartner and he LOVES it!  I couldn't get him to even look at the camera for me, then when he did....I got the pictures below. Why not just a normal picture??

This way!

This picture is funny to me for some reason. He was just playing around the house and I just happened to snap the camera and caught him in this pose. It's like he's directing traffic or something!

Brush, Brush...

Ethan now has somewhere in the neighborhood of 8 teeth, so we brush them every morning and every night. He's just come to expect that after he finishes up his bath, and we're getting on his PJ's, he gets his toothbrush. Well,he doesn't really brush his teeth. He just more or less sucks on the toothbrush, but then I get a turn at it.

I've noticed recently that he seems to be tied at the top of his mouth as well. Some of you know that E had surgery when he was about 8 months old to clip his tongue so he wouldn't be tongue tied. Well, it appears that we'll have to do the same for the top of his mouth as well. I've only noticed this since his teeth have started coming through. I guess I'll talk with his Dr about it coming up next month and see what to do from there. At least it's fixable but it sure makes brushing the font teeth hard!

16 months old

So, this post is a bit late. But, better late than never. Isn't that how the saying goes? These pictures were taken when Ethan was somewhere around 16 months old. Give or take a little. I swear, time is going by SO MUCH faster with Ethan that it ever did with Jackson.

You can barely see it in this picture, but Ethan has the exact same birthmark in the exact same place as Jackson AND Benny does. See it? Right at the base of his hairline? The small, little red blotchy thing? It's strange (but neat) to me how things such as this can skip generations. Genetics....

fun times??


Again, last month...

So, one evening Richard asks me if I just took a bath. A Bath? I say?? Not tonight yet, why? He thought I had taken a shower and just got out wet and got the carpet in our closet all wet.!

Come to find out, we had a water the closet....behind the built in shelves where it was nice and hard to get to.

FINALLY...a month later and all is fixed and back to normal. Ended up like this: When our house was being built, a sheetrock nail got nailed into the pipe and it took about 2 years for it to finally rust through, resulting in said water leak.

Fun times? Ummm...NO!

Goodbye Preschool!

As of right now, I don't have a preschooler. Jackson is now done with preschool and on to bigger and better things called regular school. Ethan is still too young to attend preschool, so I'm without right now.

Back in May, "Jukebox Jackson" (his western themed name for the ceremony) officially said goodbye to preschool and hello to Kindergarten.

Our boy is really growing up.

t-ball---end of the season

I don't know what is up with my camera these days, but I just can't get these pictures to come out right. Anyway, Jackson's first year of t-ball has come and gone. It was a questionable year. At first he liked it, then he said he was "the most horribliest player", then towards the end he really liked it again. So, to say that we'll do it again next year....I'm not so sure, but we'll see how it all goes.
