So i have recently been torturing my baby, yes it's true terrible mom i am. i had to go to the dr about a week and a half ago, perhaps it's that it was the same office where jamie was tortured for 2 months of his babyhood, but he hated it he kept grabbing my purse clutching it to himself running toward the door saying GO GO GO GO OUT OUT.
then 3 nights ago we were at the fire station for dinner, the outside door for the garage was shut, and to make matters even more unbearable, the fire trucks, and the tanks on wheels, not sure what they are actually called (jamie just loves them because he can spin the wheels all by himself) were out side. so he once again grabbed my purse and headed for the door. this time however he was much more upset, screaming HEP HEP HEP OUT CUCK CUCK OOM OOM OOM PEZE OM HEP OUT GO GO OUT HEP (a rough translation help help help out stuck stuck open open open please open help out go go out help) all on the verge of tears poor little baby, it took be about 30 seconds to give up trying to distract him and oom the door for him. he then clapped for me and said his version of good girl which i can't figure out the spelling for

Growing up

My baby is not much of a baby anymore i'm afraid. he can do basically anything himself
at least he thinks so anyways is latest is cutting his own hair. Turning on his movies of course and then screaming at me to WAT WAT. He's getting lots more words, not much clearer yet, but we'll get there.

We were in a waiting room today with a few other little kids and they were all playing and then in came a baby, anytime the other kids talked jamie would put his finger on his lips and shhhh them, so so cute.... however the other kids didn't appreciate it much.

Daddy's helper

this is the cutest thing in the world!!!!!


so it's been what like 2 months now since the last time i posted, i guess that slightly speaks for itself as to how crazy life seems to be getting around here. let's see a recap.... oy where to start, calvin is deploying in january, ok enough on that subject. the house seems to be progressing....outside anyways.....
the neighbors seem slightly less scared of us now, we actually met 2 more maybe it's because now they understand why we, hopefully temporarily, look like trailor trash.

Clean Baby

Calvin's Family reunion.... the idea was for all the little kids to play a game of croquet, Jamie thought he was supposed to sweep up the grass
Every stick he sees is his broom,
it's just another one of those things that I am no longer allowed to do when he's awake. I never would have imagined I'd sneak around to sweep, vaccum, or use the mixer, the blender, or the screw driver. He's so sweet though and really does try to help do every thing!

Cowboy Baby!

In honor of good old Frontier days, I decided to share my little cowboy!I asked him to climb in the chair for a picture, thinking if i let him make the decision to get in somehow he would cooperate more (lol) Climbing in of course was no problem, however when i asked him to sit down....
He was not interested and started trying to tame the bull,
hitting the back of the chair with his tush,
and trying to stay on as long as possible....
just like a real cowboy.

Then for a dramatic exit he jumped off!!

Crazy cowboy!

Did i mention i dread frontier days, small town, only with the population of a big town...guess i should start stocking up on supplies so i don't have to sit in line for hours.
