Bath Time Battles

At first, bath time with Noah sounded like a good idea. I mean look at this guy. He knows how to have a good time.



But then he started to get a little too wild for a fragile little boy like me



Hey mom, I think it's time for me to get out now.



I said I want out! Isn't anyone listening?! Help. Help. He's trying to pull me under!



Ahh, now that's what I'm talking about. A nice, quiet bath all to myself.

Halloween (lame title, but I couldn't think of anything more creative)

What do you get when you combine a 10 month old, no naps, a late bedtime, a 1.5 hour plane ride and trunk or treat?


And here's a closer look at the guy.

And now he looks like he's been out all night at a bar.
My little nephews Mario (Noah) and Luigi (Keanan) decided to join us at the trunk or treat to keep things in order. Actually, technically Keanan's dad is Joshua's cousin, but we figured we'd just call the little guys cousins for now so as not not confuse them. That's right people, Joshua is an uncle.


And here's another one of Joshua before I took him out to the bar. (Just in case you are a little slow today, I am joking. Though I'd like to mention that in some cultures they actually do put beer in babies bottles to help them sleep. There, now you have your educational lesson for today, and all while reading my blog! Don't worry, I didn't try the beer in the bottle technique either. Though, looking back, I can understand why some parents do.)

Lights, Camera, Action!


While I was in Phoenix I became a movie star. That's right, a movie star. Because I'm not too computer savy (which no longer matters since I'm a movie star now and can hire someone else in the future to figure out that kind of stuff for me), I wasn't able to figure out how to get this to play on my blog, but you can check out my new skills here.

From 95 to 45 degrees in a matter of hours

We just got back from Phoenix. Well, we got back last week. I would have done a post sooner, but I've been a little obsessed with a few books I'm reading. Ahh, I just love the Eragon series. I'm reading this other one that I don't really like that much, but my compulsiveness pushes me to finish reading it as stupid as that is. Anyway, so we were in Phoenix for almost 2 weeks visiting my brother and his family again. We mainly went down for my nephew Noah's 1st birthday


but decided to stay a bit longer since I wanted to get my money's worth from the plane ticket. Lucia (my SIL) and I spent a few days getting things ready for Noah's party right when I got there. Note: don't expect this awesome of a party from me for Joshua's first birthday. My mom was selfish when it came to my DNA and kept her creative gene to herself. I'm just hoping to be able to at least make a cool looking cake. Got any good ideas B?

We visited my brother almost exactly 4 months ago and took this pic of the babies

And here's one from last week. Noah is still as huge as ever. Joshua has thinned out quite a bit. His wrist rolls are fading :( The only way I can see to save them is to hold Joshua all day long so he has no chance to move around and lose more weight. Which I'm faithfully doing. Oh yeah, I guess all this holding might have something to do with him freaking out when I put him down.

I'll do a couple more posts later of the boys playing together. Oh, and here's a picture of Noah on his birthday car. Ta ta for now.
