From the mouth of babes!

My kids crack me up. You really never know what is going to come out of there mouths! Case in point, last night, Jake is talking to Phoebe about obeying her parents. He asked her this question.
"If you want to do something and you go ask you mom and she says no and then you come to me and ask and I say yes, what does that mean?"
She looked at him with a very serious face and replied,
"You're fighting"

Jake and I laughed a good while at that.

a toothless reality

There comes a time in every parents life when that have to face the facts that their children are growing up. Sometimes you can look past it, believe it is not there, but when it comes to this, no, it is a harsh reality you see every time you look into her beautiful smiling face. What am a babbling on about, you ask? Here, let me show you:

This is Phoebe after she has lost her first tooth! After her full faced excitement I tried to get her to smile in a way that we could understand what she is giddy about
There it is, the proof that my children are growing up! It is clear and clear can be! My baby girl, my daugther has lost her first tooth!

Look at her face! She is glowing! She immediately wanted to call her Bella and tell her the good new. I have to say, her telling us her tooth hurt after dinner, and now this. It wasn't what I was expecting. I remember dragging the process out for so long. The truth is wiggly teeth make my stomach squirm. I did convince her that her brave, strong, and loving father would take care of that tooth faster than you can say "My Cat Lightin' " and it was true. He did hid fatherly duties, Phoebe was doing a happy dance with her tooth and I was wiping away tears from my eyes. My little girl is growing up in if I like it or not. I can't keep a brick on her head to keep from growing and now I can't keep the teeth in either! It is a loosing battle. I guess the biggest lesson here, is for me. She is going to grow up and become some incredibly special women. I just hope I can teacher her all I can so that by the time comes for last tooth to fall out, she will be a strong and well adjusted girl.
I hope I can keep up with it. I only want the best for her. I want her to be happy with whatever she wants out of life.
I am going to go and check on my babies, and tuck them in, and kiss there heads. They grow so much in there sleep. Who knows what they will be when they wake.

Warren's 3rd Birthday!

My little baby turned three! I am really having a hard time with him growing up! I want him to stay my little baby forever! He is getting so big and has such a wonderful personality. He really brings so much joy into our home. I couldn't imagine life without him. His big sister and brother both adore him. He has even started showing an interest in potty training! Yeah for me! I really hope I can get both of these boys done! I am sick of this diaper business!
We had a small family party. Mostly because Jake wants me to start scaling back on huge parties and because I was a bit sick that week. I completly understand why Jake wants me to do small family parties, but man, it is so fun to do big ones! This one was a blast. Warren didn't care there wasn't any friends over. He already had his two best friends there. He loved his Blue's Clues birthday. He talked about it for days. And on a personal note, do you see that beautiful white cake stand? I love it! I covet it, I dream about it.... okay maybed not that bad, but I do love it. My sister bought if for me and it so great and beautiful!

THe wonderful new GeoTrax! He loves this stuff.
His new hippy hop
The three amigos

I think the faces he made while opening his presents are priceless!
