Jack picked out his shoes yesterday. Nothing like snow boots on a sunny 80 degree day! Camo shorts completes the ensemble nicely!
Owen on his first wagon ride!
Jack on his super cool tractor
He's happy about it!

Yummy, Melon!!!

Owen got his first taste of Cantaloupe today. We got this little mesh thing with a handle that you can put food in and he can gnaw on it without getting big pieces. It seems to be good on two accounts; it tastes good and it feels good on his gums. Jack also seemed to like it, much to Owens dismay.
Owen being cute
What is this thing Mommy?
Hmmmm... goes in here! Yummy!

Jack thinks he wants some too!
Owen is not happy about Jack kleptomania!
Some video to go along with the pictures

No, No Otis! Jack's Chicken!!!

Every time Jack has any food he has to say "No, no Otis, Jack's ____". It doesn't matter if we have seen Otis lately or not, it still has to be said. I figured since it is his favorite phrase these days I should get it on video. I probably hear this 100 times or more a day. In this case he didn't even have any food.

Why Jack is Afraid of Squirrels

I heard a funny noise the other day and I couldn't figure out where it was coming from. Imagine my surprise when I found this! Jack is now terrified of squirrels!

Jack also learned an important new skill...walking in heels! He will hate us for this one day!

He is better at it than I am

Trying to Stay Busy...

In an attempt to keep my mind busy I uploaded the past week of pictures. Here are a few highlights.

Rest In Peace

In loving memory of my Grandpa who passed away yesterday. I will miss you more than words can express. My heart is broken. I am so lucky to have had you in my life and that my boys were able to meet you. I only hope they grow up to be as good of men as you were. You will live on in our hearts and memories forever...I love you Grandpa

Please keep our family in your prayers during this extremely difficult time.

The boys actually played together yesterday without anyone crying or getting hurt by the other. It makes me smile...
