its been a while

The boys are growing bigger and bigger everyday. It seems like they are always learning something new. Just the other day, I was thinking about how I really need to not just cherish this time with them but savor it. You can't rewind the clock.....
Enjoy their recent adventures.....

^ passed out. (don't worry, we were watching him like a hawk)

^ can you believe it?!?!?!
HE'S SITTING UP!

^ i think he might be a future prodigy.

^ parker drawing/coloring. he loves to draw circles and say 'circle circle' while drawing them!

^ carter trying to get the paper

^ and he got it!!

^ daddy took parker outside to watch it downpour.

^ parker and carter like to play dr. parker has the shot and carter has the thermometer. they already play together. it is so cute. i tear up just thinking about it. i love them.

Carters newest thing is to chew. He looks like he's chewing bubblegum. I think he's trying to tell me he wants FOOD. Well, I guess I'll start him on cereal soon..... I'm not ready to give up the baby stage. =[

sore loser

"MRS. BUCKET: I wonder who the lucky ones will be.

CHARLIE: Well in case you're wondering if it'll be me, it
won't be. Just in case you're wondering, you can count me
out.

MRS. BUCKET: Charlie . . . there are a hundred billion
people in this world, and only five of them will find Golden
Tickets. Even if you had a sackful of money you probably
wouldn't find one. And after this contest is over, you'll
be no different from the billions of others who didn't find
one.

CHARLIE: But I am different. I want it more than any of
them.

MRS. BUCKET: Charlie, you'll get your chance. One day
things will change.

CHARLIE: When? When will they change?

MRS. BUCKET: Probably when you least expect it. See you
later.

YOU GET BLUE
LIKE EVERYONE
BUT ME AND GRANDPA JOE
CAN MAKE YOUR TROUBLES GO AWAY
BLOW AWAY
THERE THEY GO

CHEER UP, CHARLIE
GIVE ME A SMILE
WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT SMILE I USED TO KNOW
DON'T YOU KNOW YOUR GRIN HAS ALWAYS BEEN
MY SUNSHINE
LET THAT SUNSHINE SHOW

COME ON, CHARLIE
NO NEED TO FROWN
DEEP DOWN YOU KNOW THE WORLD IS STILL YOUR TOY
WHEN THE WORLD GETS HEAVY
NEVER PITAPAT 'EM
UP AND AT 'EM, BOY

SOMEDAY SWEET AS A SONG
CHARLIE'S LUCKY DAY WILL COME ALONG
'TIL THAT DAY YOU'VE GOTTA STAY IN STRONG, CHARLIE
UP ON TOP IS RIGHT WHERE YOU BELONG

LOOK UP CHARLIE
YOU'LL SEE A STAR
JUST FOLLOW IT AND KEEP YOUR DREAM IN VIEW
PRETTY SOON THE SKY IS GONNA CLEAR UP CHARLIE
CHEER UP, CHARLIE, DO
CHEER UP, CHARLIE
JUST BE GLAD YOU'RE YOU"


I'll admit it. I'm a sore loser. I didn't win the contest, nor was I one of the FIFTEEN runners up. We could have REALLY used the 12ish bumGenius diapers. Brian and I put in a lot of effort going to the lake, setting up a line, putting the diapers on, and i even made a 'pillowcase cape' with their logo on it for Parker. =/

Guess its true-- good guys finish last.

i can relate.

photo contest

I entered a bumGenius photo contest that ended this morning. I doubt I will win because people have SLRs and can take professional/profession looking pics. But, I tried my best with my little point and shoot.... It would be fantastic to win, its $250 dollars with of diapers!! That's gotta be at least a 12 pack! We could DEFINITELY use more!! Here's to trying.............




(i didn't include this one.... limit was 5)

Carter's 4 mon checkup!

He's a healthy baby boy!

14lb 13oz- almost 50th percentile
25in- 50th percentile
no vaccines this visit

He is growing up way too fast.
He can roll over tummy to back and back to tummy.
He can almost sit up.
He can get his knees under him.

Stop the clock.

poor parker

Mommy was taking a shower and daddy was getting ready for work and watching Parker. Well, while I'm getting dressed Parker walks into the bedroom holding his thumb high in the air and saying "mama". I look over and blood is dripping from his thumb. We walked to the kitchen to get a paper towel and survey the damage. Brian didn't know what had happened. I look down. there's the cheese grater attachment to our food processor. Voila. Parker had managed to get into that and slice his nail in a nice semi-circle-- all the way down to the skin. It took forever to stop bleeding.

Whenever he would bump it on a toy, try to eat, etc- it would bleed again. So, daddy being the eagle scout that he is-- wrapped it up in guaze.

Since then, the little semi-circle of nail has fallen off and it has a nice little scab.

I guess-
Boys will be boys.
