"i'll just eat this cupumber."

anytime something spills, he falls down, etc. he says "no big problem." like a mixture of no big deal and no problem. it's my favorite.

after reading the Bible one night, "me want Jesus to come outta da Bible and give me kisses!"

during Bible time, we were reading the story of david and goliath. isaac henry interjects.. "me kill dat giant! like dis! *mimics buzz lightyear laser beam* pew pew!"

watching mary poppins. i am thrilled. we're about 15 minutes in. isaac offers this review.. "me no like this. me like lightning mcqueen." 

bag boy loads our groceries into the van and proceeds to walk away.
isaac yells, "thank you! you's a big helper guy!!!!"

i'm changing into my bathing suit.
isaac points: what's dat?
me: well.. my boobs.
isaac: noooo. dat's not boobs. dat's grant's milk. remember??

isaac breaks out into a riveting rendition of this little light of mine.
ih: let it shine. dat's ne's fave-it song!
me: yeah? what's your favorite song?
ih: orange song!
me: how's that go?
ih, singing: orange orange orange orange orange... 

isaac is "helping" me make a big batch of baby food.
ih: "what next momma? *grabs a peach.* this fuzzy apple??"

the 4th.

yeah america! this year we spent the 4th with some friends watching a fireworks show in the town next door.

we walked around, ate homemade icecream (i had peach!), the boys chased lightning bugs, and we watched the show. isaac henry was a little confused and kept asking, "where are da fire TRUCKS??" the heart wants what it wants i suppose. he still enjoyed the fireworks. "they went boom boom like a drum." yep.

grant at 8 months.

cuh-razy! i can't even believe that 8 months have gone by. seriously, time is flying!

Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMug

at 8 months grant:
  • is still very passionate about purees. no chunks for this child. he does love him some puffs and graham crackers though. and he ate a goldfish once. also, he may never drink from anything but the boob so that's good. 
  • disposable dipes 4-eva. you can consider the towel thrown in.
  • teething? maybe? he's still toothless but this child is giving me a run for my money in the sleep department so i'm blaming teeth, because i always blame teeth.
  • scooting/army crawling everywhere! he'll get up on his knees and rock some. and he hasn't quite figured out how to get to a sitting position on his own but he wants to stand up soo bad. constantly trying to pull up from laying down. he's starting to get it. 
  • still waving. saying hi and momma. and we think he says ball. lots of new sounds this month! 
  • loves baths, doesn't love [or hate] the pool. so strange. 
  • loves balloons, isaac henry's toys, those drumsticks, playing peek a boo, faces/glasses/jewelry and being tickled.
  • doesn't love his face being wiped, chunky food, diaper changes, going to sleep on his own/sleeping in general. 
i don't feel like much changed this month except grant gets cuter by the second. he's awesome. we love him. and even if we didn't, we aren't sending him back at this point.

here's some more pictures of the cutest grant on the planet..

father's day..

was like a year ago. yet, here we are.

that friday before father's day, the boys and i had crafted a little card and a week before that i had taken the boys to old navy and let isaac henry pick out something for bry. i was really aiming to get bryant a "church-shirt" but every one i held up isaac would say, "me no like that!" until he happened upon a big rack of super hero tshirts. "DADDY NEEDS DESE SHIRTS!!!"

so i let isaac henry pick out one shirt for bryant. he chose "robot shirt" aka optimus prime.

and then bryant comes home from work with flowers and a balloon for the boys. because he's awesome like that.

isaac henry was soo excited that he took bryant's hand and ran inside to give him his father's day present. it was so sweet. i mighta teared up a little.

isaac was so excited to give bryant his card. he was all, "that's you on dere! super daddy! and my hand and foot!" ha!



just precious.

on sunday, i brought grant down in a random outift, and bryant was like "is he not gonna wear the daddy shirt?!" so, grant wore the daddy shirt to church.





cracks me up every time. here's isaac henry wearing the "daddy shirt" way back when. 

my boys seriously have the best daddy ever. he really is so great with them. and he's pretty great with me too. sometimes i'm confused/amazed that i started "dating" him when i was 15! it's crazy that i got such an awesome man at such a young age! really crazy! and kinda scary.. ha!



and man-oh-man, is he hot or what?! i think i still have a crush on him. 







bry, thanks for being our super daddy. you rock, you're the best, etc. etc. i can't wait to have all the babies with you. it's gonna be fun.
