Full Of It

All morning, whenever Josh would leave the room and then come back in he'd say, "I'm back! You didn't let the pigeon drive the bus did you?" lol! He is SO full of it lately.

Pulling My Hair Out!

This little stinker has been waking up at least 2 times a night for the last week! Not because he's hungry, or cold, or teething, or sick....but because he rolls over on his stomach and gets stuck! He's 7 1/2 months old and cannot roll back over!!! Haha! He's so lazy. When I think about it, or when I'm telling someone else about what's going on, I think it's actually pretty funny, but in the middle of the night when I wake up to a smothered scream for the second time, I kinda want to pull my hair out. Homeboy better learn how to roll himself back over, and soon! Mama needs her sleep...


I love this sequence of pictures.
Josh found a lady bug in the grass and sat down to show Benson (it was super sweet),
so here is Benson's checking it out...
Then he pounces...Look at the determination of his face.
Then he tries to pull Josh's finger closer to him...he probably wants to eat it.
And finally Josh has had enough. You don't mess with Josh and his lady bugs.
A few minutes after I took the above picture the lady bug flew away. Josh was all upset because he still wanted to play with it so we spent a good 5 minutes looking all over the yard for the thing. Then, just when we'd given up and I went over to pick Benson up to go in the house, look what I saw! It had been crawling all over him the whole time.
I love that Josh and Benson are starting to interact more and more all the time. It makes me so excited for the day when they can start running around and really playing together. It's going to be so fun watching them become best buds.

A New Game

I'm kind of obsessed with Pinterest... I LOVE all the great ideas I find for keeping Josh busy and other fun activities for us to do together, not to mention good recipes, random tips, and so much inspiration.
This little game was something I found on pinterest, and I knew when I saw it that Josh would totally love it. And I was right, this kept him busy for so long! Plus, it's great for his motor skills and only cost a couple dollars.

The Pumpkin Patch

Last weekend my parents came to visit! It was SO fun having them for a couple of days. I always love having them here! We relaxed around the house, shopped, ate too much, and went to the pumpkin patch.
The weekend went too fast and I already miss them. I wish we could spend more them with them. Soon enough I guess...

Grandpa's Bobcat

Grandpa stopped by on his way through town this week and he was pulling his Bobcat with him. Josh was beside himself with excitement to see both his grandpa AND the Bobcat! It was seriously funny. He loved looking at it, but didn't know how he felt about sitting in it. I was worried it was going to roll off the trailer.

Bath Time

This little guy, LOVES his baths!
He's the cutest thing! I just love him, and his huge smile.

I don't know why, but this made me laugh SO hard!

Oh, and this one too.
Me too T-Rex, me too...

Funny Josh

Beau went goose hunting last Saturday morning and when he got home he laid the geese out on the driveway to clean them. Josh can over to inspect what was going on. After he watched for a minute he asked beau if he was changing the birds bums.
Haha! We got a pretty good kick out of it. He sees me get in the same position to change Benson's bum all the time. It makes perfect sense!

Really? In October!

We had a crazy snow day last week! It snowed ALL day! Pretty crazy (lame) for the first of October, but even I'll admit that it was a pretty fun day. It was so pretty and fun to watch how excited Josh got about it. As soon as he knew what was going on, he could not wait to get outside and play in it. Lets hope his enthusiasm for snow lasts another 7 months.

This is what I got tonight when I told Josh he couldn't have another cookie...

He was seriously SO mad!
I'm so glad I happened to have my camera right next to me :)


First haircut!
He did really well until the very end, then he started to get a little scared, so I gave him a sucker to distract.

For it being his first taste of sugar, I thought he'd like it more than he did. He only sucked on it for a few seconds and then started to play with it. did the trick, and we finished the little trim with no tears.


Sometimes Josh has a hard time distinguishing between what's to stay inside and what can be played with outside.
Little turkey!

Getting So Big!

I got the camera out a couple days ago to take a picture of Josh's blue tongue then afterwords I was looking through the pictures and could not believe how old he looked!
Look at this big boy!

And this boy....he keeps getting bigger and bigger as well.

Double Horsey

Dad's got skills! Two horse rides at once.
I wonder which leg got tired first?


Last week we had visitors!
Jana, Stacia and and the girls came to stay for a couple of days and we had a blast!
Josh was in heaven the whole time they were here having "buddies" to play with 24/7. He did SO well all week minding and sharing his toys. I was really proud of him :)
While they were here we went to the zoo, played at the park, did a little shopping, worked on our quiet books, made a couple kid crafts, but mostly just hung around the house and played together. It really was so relaxing and so much fun.
I love those girls!

For some reason I only got my camera out one time all week and I didn't know it, but it was set on a weird setting, so the pictures I did take are over exposed.....dang it :(
Here are a couple anyway...

When I was looking through these pictures trying to decide which one to post, I was cracking up at the whole sequence of pictures. So funny! It's seriously impossible to get a good picture of these four!
