We're A Little Boring Around Here

Jason just looked at me and said, "It's been 12 days since you last blogged." Hmmm, I guess he's right. I haven't had a lot to blog about lately. We went to the Stock Show...but I forgot my camera. We went to Camp of the Hills with my mom for a few days...but I forgot my camera. We've been to the park a lot lately...but I forget my camera. I think you can see a theme here, and I know that most people enjoy blog posts much more with pictures! So, here are some pictures - and a little comparison just for fun.

I think I have so many pictures of Judah at his high chair because that's when he's actually still and can't go anywhere. Otherwise, he's all over the place! To say that mealtimes have become a challenge with him lately is an understatement. Sometimes I want to pull my hair out because he's become so picky and throws his food if he doesn't like it, or spits it, or smashes it with his cute little hands. Although, it's NOT cute at the time. But he sure is. He looks innocent enough in these pictures.


Here is Elijah at the same age in his highchair. Notice how much cleaner he is - he actually ATE his food! I have a much better camera now than I did when Elijah was a baby.


But even though Judah is a mess, he's still at a very adorable age.


He loves to clap his hands, and he also rubs them together to tell me he's finished eating in sign language. It would work well if he weren't doing it the whole time he's eating. I know you'd rather be playing than eating, kiddo!

Judah's first Valentines Day with his teddy bear from Nana & Grangoat.


I can hardly get Elijah to look at the camera, and if he does his eyes are so squinty I can barely see them! Must be the age. Here he is with his school Valentines hat and cards. He was with Nana & Grangoat on Valentines Day this year visiting Lauren in Austin. Anyone else think he needs a haircut??? I told Jason back in the fall that I wanted to let it grow until his birthday in May, unless he tells me he wants it cut sooner or it starts looking like a mullet. I'm getting a little worried... :-)


I also realized that we have no pictures of our dog Trigger on our blog. How sad. He used to be the baby before the boys came along. Elijah had a poster to do for school about his pet, so I got some more recent pictures of Trigger & Elijah. See...squinty eyes.


Also, check out my new blog list on the right - it is awesome, I love it and it saves me so much time! Now, instead of clicking on every single blog to see if there is a new update, my new cool thing puts the blogs at the top who were updated recently and tells me when. The only ones it won't allow to do this are private blogs, so I kept those under my websites list so I can check them periodically. If you have a blog, I highly recommend doing this to save you some time! Thanks for the tip, Jennifer!

Ice Day

This is sad that I'm just now posting these - we had an ice day almost two weeks ago, but everyone knows what a big deal that is in Texas!

Since it was Judah's first "snow", I had to plop him down on a plastic sack and get some pictures.






Then my sister and I took the 3 boys "sledding". We walked all the way to this huge hill by our house and took turns watching for cars, although there were very few out on the roads that day, especially not going up a huge, icy hill.
Here is Kristopher going down on the oldest sled in history. I remember this sled when I was little and my sister does, too. It is barely holding together at this point!


This is the hill by our house where we went sledding - I remember sledding down this very hill when I was about 5 years old - that was the biggest snow I ever remember around here!


Here comes me & Elijah - his face cracks me up in this picture! If you'll click on it you can see his face better - he was NOT sure about doing this at all - it took some persuading. And yes, we are "sledding" in the top part of a dog crate! Hey, it worked!


Kristi & Jonathan coming down the hill


We have had a very warm winter this year so I'm not holding my breath that it'll do anything like this again this year. Poor Elijah, he wants it to snow so bad!

You've gotta love a little naked baby waiting to take a bath!


Judah has become very silly at eating times. Here is proof that he would rather play than eat! No wonder you're in the 4th percentile, kid!
