So I'm going to purge whatever comes to mind. For the past while when I do find the time to write something I get bogged down with what will be interesting or whatever when in reality, who cares? I mean, who am I blogging for? For the 4 people who regularly read the blog or for myself as another form of expression? Anyone who knows me knows I like to talk, so lucky me there's blogging so I can write about every mundane thought that pops into my head. Just thought I'd share my living room...


Like currently, I'm watching Jonah "walk" in Lucas's walker while Disney's Imagination Movers plays in the background. Lucas is teething on his pacifier sitting in his Daddy's lap. Jonah's current favorite show is Nick Jr's - "Wonder Pets". the stinking theme song gets stuck in my head for days and I find myself singing it. Which of course gets me in trouble with Jonah who says I can't sing because THE MUSIC IS NOT ON. Apparenly the only time you can sing it is when you are watching the show. So at first I kinda hated the show.... It's amazing how "acquired taste" can also work for kids shows. Jonah is now dancing to the closing song of the Imagination Movers to which he just said, "That's amazing". I think we watch too much tv, but thats for another blog when I start to feel guilty about it. Having boys...


I've come to realize that 2 is more work, but I'm not going to let that change things. I still take them both to the grocery store and target. When we go to Target we usually have to stop first to get a apple juice box and bag of popcorn. At our local grocery store "VG's" we stop at the deli section where Jonah gets a piece of deli meat or cheese and "brown stuff" (oreo or chocolate mousse).

Lucas is a beast and I mean that in the most lovingly way possible. He's bigger than Jonah was at the same age. He'll be 6 months in 2 weeks and he's already OVER 20 lbs. and his feet are size 4, He easily wears a size 12 mos. Seriously, tell me thats not beastly, ok, and super cute.



Oh and breast milk helps clear up crusty eyes and snotty noses. How might I know this? Well you did ask... I milked myself into a cup and then used a medicine dropper to drop drops of milk into his eyes and nose then for his nose I used the snot sucker. Yes, it is quite a visual.

ok and seriously, did we just duplicate the genes with these boys? Same age. I think if Lucas weren't quite so chunky they would look like identical twins. I'm still working on tweaking Lucas' page, but I wanted to put the comparison up there.


so Yay I blogged a DECENT Post!!!!!! gotta run, jonah is crying....


they keep me laughing said...

i am VERY impressed that you got a blog posted. LOVE LOVE LOVE the picture of lucas sitting up and smiling. too precious! and i want to pinch all those rolls! :) if it weren't for the nose, the pictures of lucas and jonah could be the exact same baby - well, of course, minus the extra fat cheeks on lucas lol

they keep me laughing said...

p.s. the part about not being able to sing the wonder pets theme song without the show on made me laugh. kids are so funny.

FINALLY!!! Oh, Lucas' chubs make me so happy! And his smile! I can FEEL his chillness in these pics. And, your playroom so looks like mine. WAY too long between posts. I need my fixes!!!!

i can so appreciate how hard it is to blog and work and raise 2 boys...but they are so adorable. and, yes, i'm hooked on your blog. i like the way you write. and your photography is awesome. so keep it up (when you have a chance).

it does get easier. especially when they can "play" together. having someone other than mommy/ daddy to entertain the little ones is a very good thing.

as far as sledding goes...we just used to take beans and leave him at the top of the hill to watch. this was the first year he really enjoyed the downhill part.

have a great day! thanks for posting!
