And he's off........

Well it's offical, Jake has started crawling! He finally figured out that his knee's would make him go faster on the 21st, exactly 7 months old and Robert's birthday. Man oh Man he is fast now. He is getting himself into some intresting places. The 2nd picture is what we like to call Baby Jail, he gets under the chair and can't find his way out so he gnaws on the bars for a while and then want's help out. Way to go Jake and people start baby proofing your house if we are visiting you over christmas!

Robert's Birthday

Last Friday was Robert's birthday and fun was had by all, as you can clearly see by the pictures. We went out to eat and then had cake. Happy Birthday honey, I hope we made the day a special one for you. I know it wasn't as exciting as Cody's birthday at Chuck E Cheese's but birthday's are a little less exciting the older you get!

First NFL Game

Well the birthday weekend of fun continued on Sunday when Robert and Cody went to their very first NFL game. It was a Chiefs game in Kansas City. They were playing the New Orleans Saints. The Chiefs are not having a great season and it continued with this game that they lost, sorry I don't know the ending score. Robert said that Cody did really good and seemed to really enjoy himself. It was a cold day so they left early but now they both have a great memory of their first game together! What a lucky kid that Cody is!

Happy 4th Birthday Cody!

Well another year has come and gone and Cody is now 4 years old. No matter what I do to try to keep him from growing up, nothing is working and he continues to get older. We have had a very fun birthday weekend so far. Cody's birthday was on Friday the 14th and we made cupcakes to take to his class at school, he said he had a great day at school and his teacher even made him a crown so he could be a birthday prince. Friday night we opened presents, too many, he was spoiled as usual, and then he got to choose where we went to eat. He chose Red Robin and they completely embarrassed him by making him put balloons under his chin and behind his ears while they sang to him, I about peed my pants I was laughing so hard, there is a pic in the slide show of the look on his face, it was priceless.He got a ice cream sunday out of it though so he was ok with it. Today we had his birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese's. We invited a couple of his friends and we all had a blast. It was a bit of a sensory overload for me and I think Jake too but fun was had by all, the kids played and played, ate pizza, cake and played some more. I am about ready to fall over from all the fun had in the last couple of days but Cody said it was the best birthday ever so I guess it was all worth it!! He is such a sweet little boy and is turning into a little man everyday, we love you little Cody man and we always will. Happy Birthday big boy!

Jake's first tooth

Jakers first tooth popped through today. I have very mixed feelings about it. I was so excited when I felt it but at the same time sad because my baby is growing up way too fast! Cody was very excited to wash his hands so he could feel it too. My boys are growing so fast I can't even believe it. I am trying to stop and enjoy every stage of their lives but life it just going so fast latley. I use to be so excited for them to grow up but latley I have really wanted to freeze them just how they are, soon Robert will be trying to kick them out of the house and I will be crying while watching them go off to college. I guess that is a while off, I will just enjoy them while I can cuddle and smooch them with out any complaints!

Happy 1/2 Birthday Jake

Well I am a little late getting this posted but we just wanted to tell Jake Happy 1/2 Birthday! I can't believe he is 6 months old already, time really does fly! He is such a sweet little guy. At his 6 month check-up he weighed 15 pounds 9 ounces and was 26 1/2 inches. He is already wearing a few 9 month outfits and jammies. He is so close to crawling and can get around very well by doing his inchworm move. He loves to just roll and scoot around the floor and does that most of the day. He is working on sitting up on his own but usually just rolls himself onto his tummy. He is a very loud squealer. He squeals in delight quite a bit and I think he tries to be as loud as he can. He is a wonderful sleeper, which I am very grateful for, someone up there knows me very well and has blessed me with two very good sleepers. He loves his big brother and the dogs, if it were up to him he would rather the dogs lick his face clean after lunch then mom coming at him with the wash cloth. He also loves stroller rides and happily rides for as long as you push him. He hates to wait for his bottle, if he sees it you better have it in his mouth within seconds or you'll hear about it. All in all Jake is one happy little guy and we are glad to have him around!
