Don't tell your kids what they are eating!

Last night while eating dinner I asked Addison if she was eating her fish. I signed fish just as I normally do when stating it. Her come back caught me off guard and she got a look of realization and said "Nooooooo" in a matter of fact tone. She did not eat one more bite of fish.

Keep in mind we have been showing her a lot of fish. Just the day before we were at the library who have a big aquarium with large fish. I guess it clicked for her. I will no longer be pointing out any more once living items on her plate.

Addie is all girl

She was big hit at the mall the other day. She was very accessorized. She wanted to wear her doggy harness with bracelets,pig tales, sun glasses, princess crown, and her credit card (speedy rewards card). I can not tell you how many people stopped to talk about her. Oh and another brand new dress after she got car sick on the way. I'm starting to think she is doing it on purpose to get new outfits. :) She is with her aunt Jessica.

Brock's one on one

Brock wore out after camping.
There was an Elvis sighting at the camp ground.
On the paddle boat.

The view from where we were fishing.

Adam and our new camper.
Me out fishing Adam...haha no neither or caught anything. I guess I did get more green moss on my line than he did.

The shirt we bought for Brock.

I know you all have been waiting a long time for an update. Adam and I have been beyond busy with his week off. We went to Tennessee for a wedding two weekends ago and were home for only 3 days before leaving on a camping trip.
Oaklen has made it safely home and his Nana is in for a week. I think Oaklen grew 3 inches while he was away. I'll try to update again soon when I am not so wore out. It seems I am always too busy to keep up.

We have pee pee in the potty!

That is miss Addison's tinkle tinkle. She went within 30 seconds on the very first try! I'm so proud! Potty time was very comical as she kept signing potty and frog. Then while sitting she would bend at the waist all the way down to kiss the frogs eyes. I'm only working on her at this moment. I will start on the boys in a few weeks.

I missed the 20 month post. So THE BABIES ARE 20 MONTHS!

You've heard me say it a million times but time is just going by too fast! I'd say the kids sign over 50 words. They must say over 20 words. I'll try to list them but it is soo many! They say momo(lawn mower),banana,cracker,cookie,cereal, apple, knock knock, car, mama, dada, popo, papa, papaw, nana, nono(noni), Brea, Donna, bu (bubby), blue, purple, kitty cat, up, down, off, ba (bath), fish, shoes and many more.

We went to grocery store this morning. Addison was signing everything she saw. She saw shoes she signed shoes. She did the same for milk and ball. She saw tires in the car department and signed car. Addison is my little cleaner. She likes to get a wash clothe out of the kitchen drawer and wipe down the high chairs and the appliances. If she sees water on the floor from a leaky sippy she cleans it up. She is doing wonderful with puzzles.

Tyler is finally standing up for himself and I'd almost say he's start to rule things around here. If he wants something he's pretty adamant about following you to get it. Poor Brock he might be bigger but Tyler is persistent. We have a lot of squealing matches going on right now. Tyler is getting stuck on S's. So if he tries to say baseball he says sssssssssball.

Brock is doing wonderful with names! If he wants someone he just calls for you. Brock's speech has just taken off lately. He has a lot to say at all times. He is still throwing many temper tantrums a day and we are just doing out best to ignore them. Most of the time they end with him getting mad enough to slam his head on the floor. Then he cries because he's hurt himself.

Oaklen is having a blast in Texas. He's done many fun things such as swimming, biking, and movies. He told me today that he was getting home sick already. He still has 2 1/2 weeks to go but I'm sure his Nana and Popo will keep him busy and it will fly by. The babies love to talk to him on speaker phone and are starting to hi on he phone instead of just giggling.

We hope you continue to have fun Oaklen!

A new place to be

I heard Tyler crying his "I'm scared cry" and found him like this. He is the second drawer up from the floor. So like a foot high and could not get down.
And like the mean mommy I am instead of rescuing him right away I make sure to get a picture from every angle.

Brock tried to help him out by pulling....
Addison tried to lift him out.
Then I eventually got him out only to have him turn around and climb back in.
Note: Adam got ahold of the clippers and took them to my babies heads! They actually seem to like the cut though.
