All things daddy

Something has changed in Henry in the past 2 weeks. Something that has always been there, but not quite...so...loud. That would be his obsession with his daddy. It's always been present - wanting to put on Jim's shoes, doing whatever Jim is doing, chasing Jim when he's trying to mow the lawn, etc. More recently, this obsession has turned to an all-out trauma central whenever Jim leaves the house. He has always (for the most part) done this with me, but now when Jim leaves for work or whatever, Henry THROWS.A.FIT. He is so upset and just wails and wails, releasing huge crocodile tears. Kinda cute. I know it makes Jim feel good. Not that Henry is crying, but that he jsut wants him to stay around. :)
Here are some pics of Henry sporting Jim's outerwear:

Can you see me?
This one is a bit long

Am I a genius, or what?

The Stroller Gang 2008

We all went for a trip to the Woodburn Outlets last week and decided it was tradition to get a picture of all the boys together in their strollers.

It was great having so many new additions to our stroller gang!

After we got our shop on, we went to Jen's to hang out and let the boys have some freedom after being as patient as possible (not) while their mommies shopped. Was that a run on sentence? Anyhow.

On the ride to Jen's, Henry wet his pants and Ethan spilled water on his pants, so they got to play pantless! What is better than that? We wanted to get a pic of the toddlers together. The three oldest were really into it but we could not get Henry to stand any closer at first. Hee!

How fun are these kids?

Lovely mama and her precious wee one.

Jen and Mike - I mean Jack. :)

All in all, a very fun and exhausting day.

Things toddlers like

Well, you know, for like 2 minutes at a time. :)
Henry would like to share some things that we did this morning:
I played with this sheep magnet.

The sheep says, "BAAAAAAAAAA!"

See, you stick it here.

I read some books.

I played blocks.

What a fun morning!

Geez, mom. Spoil the mood with the word "nap" why don't ya.

Guess who's sleeping soundly? :)

Blog, who?

Posts have been few as of late, but I'm hoping that with my part-time job being OVER (yes!) that I'll have more time on my hands. I just mopped the kitchen floor for the first time in...wait for it...2 months! ACK! I mean, I DID spot clean it with bleach cleaner and all. Anyhow, now maybe I can keep up on that AND taking pictures AND blogging!

My latest project is converting our guest bedroom into Henry's big boy bedroom. It's a huge mess at the moment and I hope to paint it either later this week or next week, then strip and restain an old dresser and then, you know, accessorize! Ok, so I've already got the accesssories. We (Jim will laugh at that word) decided to keep the nursery as it is until it needs not be a nursery anymore. So far, Henry loves to play and read on his big boy bed. I suppose that is good news.

No, I don't know when we'll actually make the change, but I do know Henry is a wee bit large for his current sleeping situation, so I'm all for as soon as possible. :)

Until next time.
