The other morning, Jake was all about pulling the winter stuff out of his closet. Maybe this was Jake's way of saying he wants to be in VA while Chris deploys?! I don't know .... but he was determined to wear it outside that day - and it is still hot mid-day here, so it took some convincing on my part that he didn't need that hat and mittens :-)Playing with our friends Christopher and Stella. They actually are moving today, and Jake and Cole will definitely miss them!!
DENTIST! Let me just say, the pediatric dentist we go to here is great .... and his office is lots of fun! They took Jake back by himself (so no pictures), which hit home even more that he is becoming more and more of a big boy!! He did really well, though - and NO CAVITIES!! Here is Jake on the pirate ship in the office.
Cole was all about the arcade games - and the TV above the arcade games playing Toy Story (the kid loves Woody and Buzz). Cole did pretty well, too - except when we had to leave, and he was crying his eyes out, b/c he wanted to stay and play. It's not often you LEAVE the dentist kicking and screaming :-)
Jake had a rough injury weekend last weekend. First, he ran into the door when trying to throw away some trash and got a huge goose egg! (see video below that Chris took shortly after this happened - hilarious).
Cole has been all about wearing Jake's underwear these days, so here he is walking around w/ a diaper and underwear on top! Cole is a mystery to me ... this kid is wild. I really don't think there is any other way to describe him.
The second injury Jake got was when we were in Atlanta and he slammed Chris's truck door on his pinky finger :-( Poor kid. Still makes me cringe thinking about it, but he took it like a champ. We thought we were going to end up in the ER w/ a broken finger, but thankfully - it is healing on its own - and Aunt Jenn made it all better by buying him Toy Story, Cars, Scooby Doo, and Phineas and Ferb band-aids. Now, after he eats dinner, instead of asking me to "wipe his hands so he can go play, please", he says, "wipe my 9 fingers, so I can go play please" :-)
Here's a video from right after Jake ran into the door .... He was still able to answer all the important questions (and just FYI for my Dad, we are only temporarily cheering for Auburn ... when we move, we will stray from cheering from this team) ;-)
Here is the Kung Fu action that takes place in our house every night. This is actually a "low key" night, too. It's a nightly tradition, that's for sure.
