Fire truck!

He was excited when he climbed in it but a little less sure once he was there!

He loved the knobs and buttons

This is the way...

My dad's dad was also called pop and all of his 16 grandchildren have memories of sitting on his lap playing this game. We started playing it with John and he loves it!

our happy little guy!

At 18 months John is so much fun! He is quickly picking up new words and new signs. He learned the sign for "help" after the first time I signed it and it has made life sooo much easier and less frustrating for him! He has started to say what sound like sentences such as..."where'd it go?"

He loves to watch Curious George, he still likes spicy food, gets super silly around people and his favorite game is being chased! He picks up large items like laundry baskets, boxes or his fire truck and carries them around the house. Sometimes, even up a few stairs! He loves when daddy puts him to bed and reads books with him and he has a stack of books in his bed which he reads before going to sleep or after waking up. He knows where things belong and is pretty particular about putting them there when he sees things out of place!

he loves piling things in his wheel barrow and wheeling them all over the house!
we love this little guy!!!

We LOVE chicken wings!!!

Ray's buffalo wings were one of the first meals I had when I met them. I quietly told Michael that I didn't like chicken wings and he asked Cathie to make a salad also. I was unaware of how amazing Ray's chicken wings were and after tasting one I don't think I ate any of the salad!

This super bowl we made 120 wings!!! John saw them sitting on the kitchen table and when we weren't looking he decided he snatched one! He loved them and ate three including one with buffalo sauce!

bedtime show!

Anna and John both are in a Curious George phase. After long days of playing inside and outside bedtime wasn't a fight. So all ready for bed they got to snuggle up and Curious George watch together!

ditch diggers!

The weather was beautiful despite it being january!

What else would kids do with a bare garden and shovel? dig of course!

piano kids

We got to have a visit from the Jamison's last week! It was really fun to watch them all play together and Steph and I deserved our naps each day with the kids!

The piano was a hit!

a moment in the spotlight...

When you are done with your masterpiece there is no other reaction you can have!!!
