J-Two Talks!

J-Two is still small, but he is now talking and his favorite things to say are “Take a picture of my car.” “Where my cars go?” “Chicken butt!” “What are you going to do with me?” and “Hug!” (meaning: pick me up and carry me to where I want to go).

Visiting with J-One

J-One is a laugh and a half.

One minute he’s playing make-believe as a King of Swords and Buyer of Suitcases, the Comedy Suitcase Traveling Man and the Jew in the Consulate. (don’t ask how he came up with these titles, we don’t know.)

Then he stopped playing in the pool, dropped to his knees and started praying for his imaginary friend, Monkey America, to come home.

And a long conversation of how “you can be a kid an’ adult at the same time.”

iheartfaces: All Boy

It was a glorious week: my cousin (and Best Friend) was in town with her 3 adorable boys and husband. One day while Mom and Dad were on a date for their anniversary, I met up with the crew at the Purple Park. J-One was convinced that we didn’t need to take pictures ‘cuz Mom and Dad don’t need to see where we were today’. J-Two stood on the little bridge just watching until I asked if he wanted to swing. J-Two loves to swing, so off we went to swing for the entire time. Sweetheart!

Oh, Baby!

Baby showers are fun. Especially when there are babies! My cousin Jody had her baby, Abigail Kathleen Lily a few days before the baby shower. It was a wonderful day.
