The Progression

A favorite new pastime. This is how it starts...
Then we get a little bit of drool running...
Then we finish in full on, no holds bar, raspberry mania!!!

And by the way, isn't this the funniest picture you've ever seen?! Alex's face is soooo chubby and with his cheeks all puffed out and the double chin and no's the best!
This only gets better when you're sitting in Relief Society during a good/emotional lesson and in comes the motorboat in the back row. Luckily a pacifier will still quiet the situation...for now. :)

This is the papa we love!

Tigi loves you for the rides on you shoulders and how you let her work with you and the tools. Alex loves you for all your good raspberry noises and rolling around on the floor. I love you for all the hard work you do for our family and for the hunka hunka burning love that you are. :)
Thanks babe for being a wonderful dad!

We also celebrated over at Devin's dad's and attempted to take a couple of pictures. Know I know they'll never work out, but you can always hope that someday we'll get a good one. :)
You notice, only my kids were crying. Up until then, mine were the happy ones! Oh brother!

I also want to give a little shout out to my own dad. He helped me become the person I am today and he taught Dev and I how to support ourselves in a career that we love. He was funny and loving and knew how to take life's challenges in stride. I still miss him.
Love you dad.

Cute, but stubborn.

Where does she get such attributes from? Her Dad, I sure of it. :)

I put Tigi to bed the other night...around 7:30 or so. We'd gone through the whole read 3 books, go to the bathroom, say prayers, go to bed, get back out of bed, get a drink of water routine, she even told me that she wanted to change her jamies, I thought it was another ploy to delay the inevitable, so of course I told her no.

This is what I found on my way up to bed...
When I last saw her she wasn't in her "super kid" pjs, she was in pink princess jamies (which she had dressed herself in), no eye mask, and in her bed.
I guess I should be glad that I didn't know she was awake, it saved me from saying "get back in your bed" a good 5 or 6 times. Silly girl.
