Still Cold...No Outside Play for Jack

I realized something today that I know Sarah and Becky will at least appreciate. Every time Jack says the word "kitchen" it reminded me of something but I couldn't remember what it was. I figured it out last night! "There is a sale at the chichen store". MALL MADNESS!!! He says it just like that game! I was laughing all night thinking about it...anyways...
Jack loves to run. No surprise there. So, here is a picture and video of him making the best of not being able to run outside since it has been cold.

We finally gave Owen some real food last night. He got carrots and he LOVED them. He was very angry when the meal was over!

Inside Day

Since mother nature has decided to be cruel and return us to cold weather we stayed in today. I got the big coloring paper out for Jack. He really seemed to enjoy it since he hasn't done it in quite awhile!

Here was the finished product for today. I left it out in case he wanted to do some more tomorrow.

More coloring

Jack LOVES corn and we love the way he says it. "Choon". I don't give him plates of corn for lunch but he has to eat first and then I give him corn afterwards otherwise it is all he would eat.

Swim Class Pictures!

Neil came to swim class with Owen and Grandma & Grandpa so we have pictures and videos to share!

Mommy loves the luke warm water!
Owen also loves swim class
Surprised about blowing bubbles
The class playing with balls
Jack pushing off the wall and kicking

1, 2, 3, JUMP!!! Jacks favorite part of class! I have no idea why he sits on the ledge every time. He started that last week but it is pretty funny!

Ring Around the Rosy...Jack looks surprised about "we all fall down" even though he does it every week


I am just testing a new program for blogging. This picture is old, sorry!

I Like Dirt! Dirty, Dirty, Dirt!!!

We spent the majority of the day at Grandma and Grandpas house. Aunt Sarah came with Otis and we all got some quality time together!

Taking a flower to Grandma
Jack had to be sure to turn all that dirt into mud
Before Owen got a bath (to get the dirt off from Jack), Aunt Sarah showed him the mirror. I think he liked it!
So cute. Diapers were looking small today so we switched him to a size 3 tonight!
I just love it!!!

A Kiss-less Tumbling Class!!!

We made it through a tumbling class without Jack kissing anyone this week. He did follow around last weeks kiss victim for awhile and try to give her hugs and squeeze her hand (Jack does that a lot, particularly to Owen. I think it is a sign of affection). Maybe next week he will move on to the next gal.

Long Day!

Today was one of those days that seemed to go on forever. We were busy doing nothing all day though!

Jack was really tired and sat in this swing for a good 30 minutes before even attempting to move

Happy baby

Up and on the move finally

So chunky and so cute

My boys!!!

Snuggling with my sweetie

Hanging with Owen

Grandpa and Jack sitting like monkeys

Jack getting a swig of his bath water

Doing ABC's with both babies

Jack learned to say "M&M" instead of "Emmas". I am sort of sad about it but it is still cute!

Owen doing more excersaucing

No explaination needed for this one...
