Happy Mother's Day

My sweeties have been celebrating Mother's Day Week around here. It was their idea. They said I should make them chocolate chip pancakes every day to celebrate. I ran out of chocolate chips after the first day :)
Here are some pics they made for me:

from Little One



From Dancer Girl


I also got to watch TV yesterday while they made me lunch: I got a fancy wedge of iceberg lettuce with catalina dressing, with a side of marshmallows from Dancer Girl. From Little One I got lettuce with a side of marshmallows on a bed of sugar, with string cheese. I have to say it was delicious.

Look What Maaaa Kid Can Do! (pun intended)

videoWell, not only did Baby Boy start walking in earnest today (walking 4-8 steps at a time), but he also decided at bedtime that he would climb up the slide on the girls' bed!!! Don't worry, we were there the whole time. The video we took on Dancer Girl's camera was after he had climbed to the top at least 3 or 4 times. I am still in quite a bit of shock. This means no more naps for baby on the bottom bunk (which is just a mattress on the floor, which I thought would be harmless--not anymore, i guess). He could already climb on and off that bottom mattress. I was thinking of changing his nickname on here to Toddler Boy, but am guessing Baby Mountain Goat might be better (i really probably won't do that, open to suggestions, ha ha). Somebody remind me to find all my baby gates, too! :O Happy 11 months old, Son! Can't wait to see what you will be doing in a month, when you are 1 year old :)

First steps

Well, I didn't want to leave you with a snake to look at, so here is some good news. Baby boy has taken his first tentative baby steps in the last week or two. The biggest one was of course towards his daddy. Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera near me at the time. He cruises pretty quickly around the coffee table and the girls have to watch their food pretty closely or little fingers will get it. He has four cute little teeth now, 2 on top and 2 on bottom. He has such a cute big baby grin and you can see all 4 teeth when he laughs. It is hard to believe he will be 11 months old tomorrow on may 2, seems like he was just born. He will be 1 in a month. What a year it has been!!!!

I have also been spending some time daily on dictionary.com doing their daily crossword puzzle. Lots of fun! :)
My mom and dad are coming tomorrow to visit! I am excited! As a surprise I have not told the girls. Safe travels, mom and dad. love you

i will try to post pics soon, baby and girls are soo cute!
