My Men

Bathtime... too cute.

Bite Count

Just in case you were wondering I think G's fire ant bite count for the summer is officially in the 70's. Actually if I go back and count it sounds like 79.

Remember to boil water and cook them where they live...

G Man turns Two!

Pictures from G's 2nd Birthday Party on August 16th.Birthday Balloons mark the spot.
Ta-ran and G in the small pool together.
Big boy! Happy Mommy! Getting the cake ready
Here is my "traditional" Sally Falon carrot cake for G. Last year (if you go look) the one was spelled with pecans. This year I used carrots for the two and trim. Next year I'm thinking raisins. Everybody fit in our kitchen for the Happy Cake song.

Baby Ty is walking, hurray!

And here is the impulse buy, the porch swing,
Lastly I wanna send a shout out to our dear friends Chloe and her momma Chandi, Happy birthday little girl. (She and G share a birthday.)

Emerson's Party

More Pictures of G (thanks again to Julie, these are from her son Emerson's first birthday party last month).This little Lady is Isa, she is about 5 weeks older than G I think.

G, Isa and Oliver I believe.

Oh Bugs!

G has been to so many birthday parties this summer he now likes to sing "Happy Cake" to the tune of Happy Birthday. Thanks to Julie for this Picture! Our family camera is filling up, I'm still crazy about taking lots of photos but... well we've had some chaos and I can't find the thingy... you know the thingy. USB port stuff right?

G has had two more insane rounds of bug bites. First a series of mysterious misquito bites, 20+ that appeared over night over a two night span. I even got the pediatrician involved on that and we still aren't entirely sure what bug did all that biting. We're sure it wasn't fire ants, bed bugs or spiders, and we ultimately suspect a flying couple of no-see-ums or mosquitoes. Anyway they preferred G even though we all sleep in the same room.

Then a few days ago, would you believe he found ANOTHER fire ant nest. Poor boy! Eleven new bites on his foot and hand. And no one to blame because G and I were both on the look out for mounds and there was none were it happened. Boiling water works as well as any chemical and I feel relief at the sound of a kettle coming to a boil.

So our craziness is the unexpected remodel of a large portion of our house. Our office, once organized is disbanded. Our Dinning Room is now in our Living Room, and despite our best hopes we won't be able to complete this remodel until about a month from now. The good news is G has gotten a lot of supervised construction experience from us both as we work toward including him in all aspects of our lives as opposed to trying to hurry through this moment so we can play with him later. It hasn't slowed us down too bad, only we couldn't finish before our calendar filler up.
