The other day Jed was holding Kane when he started to stink so Jed passed him off to me and I took him to the changing table. Kane had pooped but it wasnt much so I was teasing Jed telling him he should have taken this one b/c it wasnt bad. Jed walks into our bedroom to say something to me so I looked over at him and just then he gasps, I look down and Kane is pooping all over the changing table! I start laughing and Jed runs to get some napkins. We thought he was done so I started to clean up and he started pooping again so I just held his legs waiting for him to stop. Well, to my surprise (he's never done this before and its not supposed to be an issue at his age according to his dr.) for his big finale he decided to pee all over me, himself, the changing table and even the wall! It was a scene! Thats how he ended up in the bath where this picture was taken. I try to get as many pictures of his blue eyes as possible as I keep waiting for them to turn brown!
I pulled out the boys memory totes to put some stuff away and Evan wandered in. He immediately found his "squeaky" aka his old pacifier and popped it in like he had never given it up! Its been almost 2 years since he quit cold turkey but apparently he's ready to pick it up at any given time. I took some pics before confinscating and hiding the pacifier.
Time for a Christmas picture! The boys know the drill but...
Put their baby brother in between them and they lose it! This is the best picture that I got of the three of them and to prove it,
There's this one. Doesnt it look like Evan's saying, "Mom, give it up this is never going to work."
Then there's this one, all three look thrilled!
Another attempt with grandma, which wasnt too bad.
Why is the infant the only one looking at the camera? :)
Finally I gave up and took them to get a picture with Santa at the mall. They didnt break down crying or try to run away but they were in kind of stunned state. Seth didnt move or speak the entire time he was up there and Evan just kind of whispered to Santa what he wanted. It was so funny!
This little guy stayed home with daddy and napped while I took the other two to see Santa.
We were on our way out to do a little Christmas shopping and I popped the binky in his mouth and he actually took it for a little while. I thought it was so cute! I also love the way he looks in a hoodie, adorable! I found a hoodie on sale at Old Navy this week and bought it for him for Christmas. Its funny, I had pretty much finished my Christmas shopping when I realized I hadnt gotten him anything! Does that make me a bad mom? :) Oh well, at least I caught it before Christmas. I adore this kid but its been hard to readjust my thinking to being a family of five rather than four.
Sweet little boy.
Jed took some fun pictures of the boys today. Evan loves to make silly faces at the camera and then look at them afterwards. This one cracked me up.
Is it time for bed or a safari?
So I was out shopping yesterday and I saw this woman with the coolest double stroller I've ever seen. I really liked it because its so compact. Kane might just get a little brother so I can use this thing! Just kidding, I would never have a baby just to use a product. :) Unfortunately its more than $500. Why do people pay so much for things like this? I just cant imagine what would ever make a stroller worth that much! That frustrates me. Anyway, heres the link if you're interested http://www.babybungalow.com/phtebapr.html.
He's too big for this shirt but I really like it so I wanted to get one more wear and picture out of it!
We went to the Christmas parade tonight. Evan was thrilled too see so many "offisters" and "copsters". Seth liked all the bikes and whenever a white bike drove by he'd shout, "Uncle Jay!" even though uncle Jay was standing next to him. :) When Santa went by I noticed that the only people really freaking out about him were the parents, "Oh Timmy look its Santa!" Timmy was like, "Yup." I sometimes wonder if its really just the adults that get into the whole Santa things. My boys dont really know anything about Santa and I'm not sure if I want them to. They're both so excited about Christmas and I didnt have to say anything about Santa to make that happen. The whole Santa thing just seems lame to me, I dont know why... Although I do want to have them get their picture taken with Santa, I think every kid should have a picture of themselves as a toddler screaming in the arms of Santa, thats classic! :) We'll see what happens.
Kane was amazed by all the flashing lights.
A large man in a tiny car, too funny!
You really cant see it in this picture but Santa is sitting on top of the fire truck, parentseverywhere were freaking out!
Afterwards we got some ice cream. Evan refused to look away from his ice cream for a picture so he's yelling "CHEESE" into his bowl.
I tried to get a cute picture with the giant, lit, tree in the background but Seth would have none of it. Evan's looking at him like, "Come on stop being so dramatic and lets get this over with."
Jed was working on the computer all weekend so I've only been able to get on a little bit here and there making it difficult to post. I missed Thanksgiving and Kane's 9 week picture so I have some catching up to do!
Thanksgiving was awesome we went over to our friends the Mason's for dinner. Len made a turkey and a ham, yum! The little boys played in the backyard until dark, the big boys played videos games and us girls hung out in the kitchen cooking, cleaning and chatting.
Hanging out after dinner.
Thanks for having us over Len!
The four people in this world that I'm most thankful for:
Friday Jed and I got up early and headed out for some shopping madness. The toy sales were lack luster but we found some clothes for us on sale and let me tell you, I need a wardrobe update! Actually my wardrobe isnt too bad I just dont fit into any of my pre-Kane clothes yet. Fortunately I found some jeans for $15 and a couple of shirts for $6! Yay!
The rest of the weekend was pretty low key. Jed worked on a Christmas present for the boys, we're setting up a computer for them in the florida room/playroom. Let me back up, over the summer we cancelled our satelite tv and instead hooked up or tv to an antenna and a computer. Its really great b/c we're saving so much money every month and we arent losing out too much on our tv selection. In fact now we can go right to Nexflix.com and watch movies instantly! Now we're doing the same thing for the boys plus we're installing some learning software for them to use. Thats part of the reason I couldnt use the computer this weekend, Jed had both computers torn a part, mixing and matching parts and pieces, troubleshooting and other such things I dont understand. :) Anyway, thats one of their gifts this year, shhhhh dont tell them!
Today I took Kane to the doctor and he's still packing on the weight at 12lbs 12oz and 23 1/2 in long! He's in the 75th percentile for both height and weight! I love having a chubby baby, its so fun. Also last night he slept from 11:40pm to 5:30am, thats almost 6 hours. He's done this a couple of times randomly over the last 2 weeks, its been wonderful.
9 weeks and growing!
