Hey guys…come look! January 5, 2013

Jill and I were cooking in the kitchen today and McKinley was in the bathroom. Teagan crawled in the bathroom to check on McKinley. A few minutes later McKinley says, “hey guys come look” in an excited tone. We walk around the corner and find the following. Welcome to parenting a boy…I guess.

We are training Teagan to be a Jedi. We thought the lightsaber was an appropriate starting point.

Teagan is officially climbing whatever he can. We’re expecting to find him chopping vegetables at the kitchen counter soon. Time to take it to the next level!

We have made a paper chain to help McKinley count down to Christmas for the past two years. It seems to be one of her favorite parts of the season besides egg nog!

Teagan is now 11 months old and everyday he is doing something new. This morning I walked in the room and he was standing in a rocking chair. I wanted to take a picture but I was afraid of him busting his head open. So instead here is a cute picture of him with Uncle Tim from the weekend.



We’re Back!

So we have finally made it back to the blog. Thanks to Josh for ragging me long enough to get me started again. Below are a few pictures from the Thanksgiving feast. Thanks to Joy for taking the pics. Enjoy!

Happy Easter!

Like Father, Like Daughter

A lot more has happened but I am working on getting caught up on my scrapbooks before baby #2 comes in December.  I am caught up to last December – only 6 months behind – I guess I better get crackin’ since nap is only 2 hours and I need to take a shower in that time.

We are also working on potty training McKinley right now.  We started on Friday but today we started with a kitchen timer.  I told her Brenton and Thatcher had one and that is what they did and she loves it.  The first time it rang – it scared her but she likes it now.  We tried every 30 minutes this morning and she didn’t pee-pee until 11:00 and got a little in her big girl panties.  We are still working on it.  Can I say that I love nap time for the fact that I get to put a diaper on her and not worry about her peeing on the carpet or couch.
