Root, root for the home team . . .

We may have found Jacob's calling . . .pro baseball player! This boy loves baseball. He will use anything, and I mean anything as a bat -his toy golf club, a large cardboard roll that fabric came on, a small thin curtain rod, you name it, he'll use it. (Disclaimer: we have purchased actaul bats and balls for him and he does have a little tee, so it's not that he is lacking these items) We were blessed with a little one who really isn't interested in TV. That is until now - when a baseball game is on. The past couple of times we've watched a game, he is glued to the TV, clapping when something goes well and imitating the pitcher! It is very cute. We are excited that he is so interested in a sport . . .that being said, we'll see what happens . . .

Food, Glorious Food!

Last Tuesday, May 15, Aidan took his first bite of solid food!
YOU be the judge on how it went . . .

Unsuspecting little man . . .

And the cereal comes out as quick as it went in . . .

Please mama, don't make me eat that!

The gagging was a little dramatic . . .

Please God, make it stop . . .

Why are they not getting it? I don't want this in my mouth!

Ha!Ha! It is fun though!

Maybe if I show it to them, they'll stop feeding it to me!

Thanks goodness . . .it's all over!

A Happy Mother's Day

We spent a very nice Mother's Day with both sides of the family at my parents house. Everyone came and ate a very yummy breakfast and then hung out while Jacob entertained us in his swimming pool. (Unfortunately, I don't have the photos of that yet - soon though) The picture below is the picture I used for the gifts I made. After several attempts to get the perfect picture, this was by far the best. Jacob refused to smile while Aidan smiled almost every time. It was actually pretty funny trying to get a picture. Ah well, I really like how this one turned out.

We hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day!!

Fun in the sun

For those who live in Arizona, you know what's coming. For those who don't - it's that time again . . . Time to get used to driving while attempting to keep your legs and bums off the scalding hot seat, then after not succeeding in that, peeling your legs and bum off the car seats; not being able to touch the steering wheel for the first half hour you are in the car; to the way it feels like you are walking into a giant oven every time you walk outside, and to the fear that we may just surpass the heat record of 122 set in 1990. There are some pluses, believe it or not. We usually have some pretty incredible thunderstorms and it means it time to bust out the sprinkler and all of the pool toys! Jacob had his first sprinkler experience last week and loved it. Aidan had fun watching his brother, dreaming of the time he'll be able to join him.

Not much to report

There hasn't been too much to report from the Thomas household. Not really any major milestones have occurred, just the normal day to day life. Jacob did decide one day that I didn't leave enough Cheerios on the floor for him to clean up. He took care of that by dumping the entire box on the floor and then used his broom to "clean up". The boys have fun playing together - Jacob loves to give Aidan kisses and Aidan loves to watch Jacob run around. Finally, one day I discovered that we now have to strap our little wiggle worm into his swing.
