Grab your shovel and pail

That's all Jaden cared about - shoveling the sand into the pail. The boys were having fun outside after their naps today. They both got mad when it was time to go inside so I could start on dinner.

And of course - Carson has something in his mouth, and he stopped to pose for the camera, like always!

Happy Father's Day 2009

Well, other than the weather it was a good day. We were at Chris's parents' house most of the day, so the boys had lots of fun. The boys also go to see their great-grandparents. Jaden loves taking rides in Great-Grandpa's motorized wheel chair ;)

Carson loves carrying stuff in his mouth. This is a bad picture, because I was moving the camera as he was crawling, but you see what I mean. He carries stuff in his mouth like a dog, lol. It's cute! Sometimes he picks stuff up with his mouth, and sometimes he picks something up and puts it in his mouth to carry. Either way, it happens multiple times every day.

He heard the camera take a picture, so he decided to stop and pose.

Both boys passed out on the way home. We left at 6:30 p.m., and nothing we did actually woke Jaden up. Finally Carson went into Jaden's room and started pounding on his bed. Carson absolutely loves his big brother, so when Carson went into Jaden's room and saw Jaden he was so happy to see him! It didn't really wake Jaden up - he just rolled over, really, but I made Jaden get up anyway. I finally got Jaden up and he finally went potty around 8:45 p.m. After that, and a few more minutes, he was finally in an okay mood. I think Jaden loves Carson just about as much as Carson loves Jaden =)

And look! Jaden smiled for the camera!!! That hasn't happened in I don't know how long!

A birthday party

We all went to a friend's daughter's 2nd birthday party. After I fed Carson he was a much happier camper. He was all about playing with Daddy's hat for a long time.

Then it was time for cupcakes. This was his first experience with cake, and he loved it!

Digging in

Being his cheeser self.

Passed out on the way home. I put him on the floor, on his back, so he'd wake up, but nope!

I know - I'm a bad mommy - I didn't get any pictures of Jaden at the birthday party, but he was too busy being everywhere, lol.

It's snowing!

That's what Jaden was saying Sunday night. We had gotten a new entertainment center, and Chris was putting it together while I tried to keep the kids occupied and out of the way. Jaden had gotten into the box all the parts came in, and put the barn in there, too, so I put Carson in the box, as well. After a few minutes I heard Jaden say he was playing in the snow. He made a HUGE mess, but it was worth it - it was just so cute!

After the entertainment center was put together, and in it's place, Chris was putting all the other stuff in their places. Jaden was playing in one of the cabinets. No clue what his face means in this first one, lol. Oh, and please forgive the very bright flash on the DVD player, eek!

Brother's motorcycle

After his bath last night, Carson decided he'd climb on Jaden's motorcycle. He got halfway onto it...

...then did a nose dive right off of it.

He got up to do it all over again.

I think he was trying to get on the seat, but never got exactly where he wanted to, lol.

Books in bed

Jaden loves his books. Apparently he loves them so much he has to sleep with them, lol. Lately he can read us books! He does it by memory, of course, but it's so cute! The other night, as Chris and I were getting ready for bed, this is how we found Jaden (we always check on the boys before we head into bed). He had his pillow on him as his covers, and was "reading" Hop on Pop. If you look closely you can see, under his waffle blanket, another book (Green Eggs and Ham if my memory serves me correctly).

4 years today

Chris and I have been married for 4 years today! I can't believe it's been 4 years already. In 4 years we have bought a house and had 2 kids. Jaden will be 2 and a half at the end of this month, and Carson is 10 months old. Chris and I don't have any recent pictures of the two of us, so here are our kids. Trying to find pictures of them that I have not posted was hard.

Here's Jaden last weekend at his Grandma and Papa Charles' house.

Here's Carson today. I went on a walk, with the boys, to my mom's house. He passed out on the way back.

Here's Jaden and Carson at Jaden's easel today. I would've been a cuter picture, but as soon as Jaden saw that I had the camera he started getting up. Carson was also slipping underneath the easel and trying not to.

10 months old

Carson is 10 months old today - wow! I know I say this every month, but where did the time go?! Carson crawls like a maniac these days and pulls up on anything and everything. I've only seen it once, but Chris has seen Carson get brave and let go, a couple times, of whatever it is he's standing against. He has 7 teeth - 4 on top and 3 on bottom, and his new thing he learned is pointing at or poking things (or people) with one finger. I weighed and attempted to measure him today, and he was 21 lbs even and 30 inches long. I don't know if my measurement was correct, though, as I was the only one trying to hold him still and not mess up what I was measuring him with. Here are a few pictures I took of him today - enjoy!
