Cuties Patooties

Shots that are too cute not to share...
If you can count the number of accessories Maizie is wearing, you win a prize.

Big Boy!

It's been another month of big changes. Anderson's doing fun, new things every day.

Fun with Friends

We had an "at home day" that went awry and Noelle and Brian were nice enough to let us come up for lunch and hang out with Luc. Maizie (who would only wear this fancy dress and shoes that day) decided to take Luc for a ride around the apartment. They really love each other and they both like to give goodbye kisses!

Little Jake and Anderson hanging out by the bars at an indoor playground. Surrounded by expensive play equipment and they choose bars. Cutest little jailbirds I've ever seen.

Grumpy Old Men loungin' by the pool. Gotta love it.

Maizie going for a ride on the "Noelle" Express. Afterwards, Noelle said it was her turn and Maizie laid down in the shallow water and told her to get on!

Closest Cousins

Catching up. Bear with. Brooke came to visit at the end of July with Jason's mom. She watched all 3 kids while I ran around to my heart's content. Glorious. From the looks of these pictures, you can see that Maizie and Brooke had a pretty excellent time as well. Thanks, Margaret!

This shot was Maizie and Brooke playing "house" in our bathroom. Nice.

The pool was closed, so we turned on the sprinklers in our back "yard"! Fun, fun.

Anderson Waving

Crazy 8s!

Since I last wrote, our marriage turned 8 years and our son turned 8 months. This has definitely been a crazy year for us. Since our last anniversary, Jason has started a new job (which he loves), we've bought our first house (which we love) and we've brought home our first son (which we absolutely, positively love with all our hearts). Jason is the love of my life and I'm glad we're together through times of change and times of routine. He's keeps me calm and laughing. I have tried to stay mad at him before and it never works. Thanks for 8 great years!

On to the boy. Anderson has changed so much in the past month. He is officially a STINKER! He is army crawling all over the place and has knocked over the dog bowl exactly three times, swallowed a foam letter "S" and attempted to swallow a tag that fell off a toy. He's knocked my camera off the desk, pulled up on the gate and fallen over (twice), and almost jumped out of the exercauser. He's taken his first "big boy" bath with Maizie and also received his first combat wound in a battle for control of a metal Cinderella purse. Maizie was a much more active little baby, but she wasn't as curious as this little Monkey. I am really enjoying watching more of him emerge. Here are pics of our smiley little man.

Perfect fit.

Princess Anderson. He's chronically surrounded by girls, so more of this is sure to come.

Happy, happy. Joy, joy.
