Well there is certainly lots going on around here these days. It seems like my boys have all decided they're going to grow up this week. Today happens to be Micah's birthday. Happy Birthday Micah!! He got to spend his sixth birthday looking for deer in the woods with his Daddy. What a fun day!
While Micah is getting a little bigger, he's still the same ball playing kiddo he's always been. But he has certainly added a wealth of football knowledge as well as a serious interest in soccer recently. So far, his size doesn't seem to be impeding his athletic ability much.
Micah's baby brother also just happened to turn two months old today. Just look how cute my boys are together. At least they're cute when they want to be ;)
Isaac has changed quite a bit over the last month. He still doesn't like the car, but now he does tolerate it under certain circumstances. We've even discovered that he will take a MAM pacifier if we insist, but usually he'd just prefer a blanket and a cuddle. The best part of this new two month old baby is the smiles. He's decided he loves to play with us first thing in the morning, right after breakfast that is. He'll smile and laugh at anyone who comes to him for a good ten minutes if he's just eaten. Baby smiles are just the best aren't they?!
Now for Jadon. His birthday was last month, but he's decided he's not to be left out of the growing boys' club. We had an unusually calm week, so he and I spent the better part of Monday through Wed in the bathroom on the potty. And believe it or not, my boy is potty trained. If you ask him, he'll be sure to tell you big boys go in the potty and babies go in the diaper. And Jadon is definitely a big boy!!
Some days I just can't stand the fact that my kids are growing up so fast, but most days I'm so proud. They are great kids, aren't they?

You know that old saying, "the best laid plans..." Well, that was how I felt today after my attempt at a photo shoot for my kiddos. The day was gorgeous: blue sky, lots of sun (not always great for photos, but there were enough clouds to make a go of it), warm enough for just a sweater and no rain. So I found some fallish sweaters for the big kids and went to town looking for something for Isaac (I had a gift card specifically for this purpose). We struck out at Walmart, so I used the gift card for family essentials and found a cute sweater for my guy at Target.
