Music to my ears!!!

Yep, Jonas finally says Ma-Ma and Da-Da. Of course he says Da-Da more. He even plays games with me. I tell him to say Ma-Ma and he just looks at me and grins and says "Da-Da", that little Stinker. But at least he is finally saying something. Maddie was talking at 6 months so we've been wondering when Jonas would start saying something besides "hmm" and "ahhh". But I guess when you have a big sister that talks for the both of you, it isn't really a priority. Either way, hearing him say "Ma-Ma" (actually like mumm-mumm) and even Da-Da really is music to my ears.

Where has the time gone???


I can't believe that my little baby boy is 9 months today. Happy 9 month Birthday, Jonas!!!! He is such a sweet little boy. He gives the best hugs. And when he smiles at you, your heart just turns to mush. I can't imagine not having him in our family. I'm so thankful that our Heavenly Father blessed us with him, even though at one time I thought "But I'm not ready for another one yet." I guess someone else knows best. Well just 3 more months and we'll be celebrating another 1st birthday though it seems not so long ago that it was Maddie's. Where has the time gone? I'm not ready for Jonas to grow up. I'm not ready for another toddler zooming into trouble twos. Maybe Jonas will give me a break, but either way, HE IS MY LITTLE BOY. I wouldn't love him any more or any less, he has already stolen my heart. I love you, Joey!!!!

Gooble, Gooble, Gooble!!!

I know it's a little late now but I wanted to post some pictures of the pumpkin I carved for Thanksgiving. I thought it was pretty cute and I had never carved a pumpkin for Thanksgiving. When we bought our pumpkins before Halloween, we bought 4, one for each of us but we only ended up carving two for the kids and left 2 for decor. But as we were packing up all the halloween stuff, I saw a picture of a turkey in one of those books so I thought I'd give it a try. So here are some pictures of the kids and the pumpkin.

I'm down with the Faux Hawk

This morning, Jason was getting ready for school and when he went to style his hair, he felt like doing something a little wild and well...different. He walks out of the bathroom and says, "I'm wearing my hair like this to school today." Well I laughed at first but then after I looked at it, I really liked it. It was different and pretty hot in my opinion. So here's Jason's faux hawk...

All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth!!!

Not me, Silly. Jonas!!! I hope that's what he was wanting b/c that's what he got. He now has his two front teeth plus the bottom two that he has had. He's so cute with his little choppers. I do love toothless, gummy baby smiles but gappy baby smiles are cute too, esp when their your babies. He has been missing out of some foods that at this age Madison had been eating b/c she had already sprouted those teeth. So now he'll get to experience some new foods. I got a picture of Joey giggling at Maddie today while he was eating. So sorry he's little messy, but it's a cute picture and you can see his little teefies shining. Isn't he cute?? Check it out!!

Who says you can't...??

So my two year old doesn't quite understand that you can't wear swimsuits in the WINTER. I told her, "Sweetie, you can't wear your swimsuit, it's to cold to go swimming." And she looks at me and says, "but I'm pretending to go swimming. it's not to cold to pretend." So who says you can't pretend?? I'd love to pretend it's 90 degrees outside and I'm sitting in the sun, sipping on a strawberry banana smoothie maybe even getting a nice back massage. See, who says you can't pretend?? So now here are some pictures of Maddie "pretending" in her swim suit.

Here's Maddie putting on my shoes. I really hope that this isn't anything to worry about. You know, swimsuit and high heels. LOL

Maddie shaking her booty.

Still dancing but this time twirling around in circles.

In this one, she's pretending to surf. See her surf board? What an imagination!!

Another that I'm worried about! Shopping in a swimsuit. LOL
