I feel like I haven’t been on here in a really long time. I’ve been busy helping organize a 5K to benefit a friend of Kirk’s who is no longer with us and traveling to Kansas and also just trying to keep this busy toddler busy since there’s snow on the ground outside….
Below are a bunch of random pictures…
He loves his Gymnastics class that we do every Thursday with his friend, Lucas. He was calling it “the Magics” on the first day, but now he’s all big and grown-up and it’s just plain old Gymnastics These two…probably talking about a Superhero. No, I remember, looking at a Spiderman Shrinky Dink we made. Lying on Daddy’s guitar. Daddy doesn’t really play guitar….i think he just wanted to seem like a “musician” and bought it and put a bunch of stickers of crappy bands on it. Oh, and that’s Tarzan lying next to Reeve. Walking through our neighborhood one day when the weather was nice. Even when he doesn’t have an actual cape on, he’s using his arms and pretending he has one flying behind him. Best Friends….these two are funny. And complete opposites. D never says a word and just smiles…he’s so cute with his dark skin and curls. Superhero room…we spend about 4 hours a day in this room. I’m starting to despise Superheroes. just a cute face…..matching jacket and pants. Fake smile….he likes it when I tell him to say “peace please……” Did you know that teaching your kid to say “Peace” instead of “cheese” when you tell them to smile for a picture products a more natural smile. Do it. Seriously, stop what you are doing right now and notice the difference in your smile when you say each word. I’m sure it has something to do with the ‘c’ sound of “peace” versus the ‘z’ of “please” I learned that trick years ago
Grumpy Pants wakes up from each nap and yells at me to “go get me a bottle…..” even though I always have one waiting in the same spot for him every day.. Snow Day….we were bored so I brought it inside and let him play in it. He likes to bury his men in it. I poured a squirt of Strawberry Lemonade MIO in it and he kept eating it.Flying with Daddy
Lining up all of his Men on a snowy night He wanted Krypto, Superman’s dog, separated from the rest of them. Playing with a Car Garage Don Linny & PPJ gave us over a year ago, but that we just remembered and got out. Hannah liked it too Kansas….
He found this little Superman cape from Don Linny and wanted her to have one too. Hers is a Star Wars Pool Towel….he didn’t care. They were shining flashlights at the ceiling. New Batman cape that hasn’t come off since this picture. Seriously, I have to hide it or tell him it’s dirty to keep him from wearing it. I’ve washed it 4 timesSweet Face napping in the car
Is there any question that these 3 blondies with big heads are related? He sometimes calls them his “brothers” Jack or Will (wheel) He loves him some JackDon Linny’s boys…
this was pre-Super Bowl. He was Serious about the game…he had THREE capes on at once. Watching TV with WillGetting wrapped up in a blanket by Jack
snow day…we stayed an extra day in Lawrence since the boys’ school got cancelled so he could get some extra Cousin Time Oh…..ughhh
What follows is a bunch of pictures of Reeve sleeping on my face. ON. MY. FACE.
I can’t explain how or why, I will only tell you that he was so crabby when he went down for this nap I decided I needed to take one for the team and just lay with him if i had to (which I never do) to make sure he was well-rested and woke up in a better mood. It was new environment for him and so he had a hard time relaxing….
Everytime I tried to roll him off or reposition him, his arms would just splay out wider and he would literally GRAB my face. I’m the one taking these pictures of us, so I’m not very pretty b/c I’m trying hard not to breathe
Back at Don Linny’s he spent a good amount of time putting Superheroes down this hole in the side table. Bath hair…
and on our way back home. I swear he’s already like a teenager….
We are heading out to Florida soon to see Kirk’s family (and Mickey) and I can’t even imagine the posts that will follow once we see him….I can’t wait.
Have a great weekend. We have a Date Night tonight with a few other couples and are looking forward to having some time downtown.
