Bailey brought her bounce house to Johnny's party!
Last weekend Grandpa, Papa, Adam and Kevin (Twacey's husband....father to Jenna-Wee, BEEbecca and Luca) put together Johnny's "backyard playground". (a birthday present courtesy of Momo)
And later I caught Johnny doing this...
His fashion sense is atrocious!!!
THE BIG SCHOOL RACE!
Johnny participated in "The Big School Race". When you ask him, he'll tell you he won. It was very exciting! He even got a blue ribbon for winning.
And the real story?!?! He was waiting at the start line for his teacher to tell him to start. She wasn't at the school race so he stood there for about 30 seconds while the other kids ran; then he began running down the track a little behind the other kids. He got to the "finish line" and looked around for a few seconds. Lining the side of the track were some decorative flags. Johnny spotted those and immediately ran over and dashed under them. Looked at me and said, proudly, "I WON! I'M THE ONLY ONE WHO WENT THROUGH THE FINISH LINE".
Mommy got a new camera for Mother's Day and it is amazing. We managed to snap this photo of Johnny running by and it makes me laugh every time I see it!
This was Johnny's first photo with the new camera. Unfortunately it's and extremely honest depiction of his attitude!!
Maisy is 5 months. She loves her brother very much. She gets so excited whenever she sees him.
She's started sleeping in her crib like a big girl. She was sleeping in her swing, but the motor burnt out so we made the switch. (I would also like to plug this fisher price swing. Bailey slept in it 24-7 for 4 months. Maisy slept in it 24-7 for 5 months. If they averaged about 19 hours of sleep per day over 9 months, that is about 5400 hours of swinging before the motor died. I think that's pretty good.)
She's learned how to make a couple noises - "ckckckckckck" is her favorite and she practices it very early in the morning. She can also stick out her tongue and blow raspberries.
Bust mostly she loves to smile
Here are some pictures of Maisy... Overhead from Johnny
Daddy: I'm not sure if this is going to work
Daddy told Johnny he's going to work and will be back late Sunday night and Johnny thought about it and said "I'm OK with that".
We told Momo that Johnny's birthday party is a pajama party.
Mama, for our next baby, I want you to have two of them.
Mama: Johnny, don't put your hands in your butt
Johnny: Mama...I think it sounds better to use the word "watuski". You really shouldn't use that other word, use "watuski"
Mama: OK, I won't do that anymore
Johnny: OK mama, don't. that other word just doesn't sound nice
While reading bedtime stories Johnny exclaimed "pause the book, i have to poop!". (tivo has changed the world)
When Johnny uses the computer and scrolls down the page he says he's "Squirreling"
Johnny: Do Jennalee and Luca have another baby yet?
Johnny: Well they should. Some of our friends are turning up with babies, and Luca can talk now so he’s not a baby ananymoreso they should get another one. (Tracey didn't seem to agree with his logic!)
The next time I see a slug I want to ask him if he's sticky
Johnny telling a Ghost story
whispering "there was a ghost"
regular voice "where do bats live?"
whispering again "there was a ghost and he made all the bats in the cave die and maggots ate them"
