Right now at our house


  • Johnny is asleep like a good little baby.

  • Caity is yelling at the top of her lungs, "Mommy! I not go to sleep no more! I never goin to sleep again!"

  • John is out working on some transmission.

  • I am wondering why I am not in bed. I think I may be sick. Aw maaaan.

Yesterday

Caity tucked Daddy into bed last night. Using all her blankies (aka blankterias) to make surehe was nice and comfy. Trying to put the blankies on daddy

He is getting so so so big. sad.



Yes, this is how behind I got on the laundry. And yes I still have two loads in the washer and dryer at this point in time. Please don't tell me I am the only one.


Start school in like 4 days...crazy!!

Mean Caity Correction

So when I was talk to my mom she said it sounded like "mean Caity" was saying "you don't want me" as in we don't want her. I can see that. However, what she was REALLY saying is "you don't want me" as in "you don't want to mess with me." How can I tell? Trust me I can tell...and the first time I asked her and she provided body language that made me think she was going to start a fist fight. So anyway...Caity knows we want her, and Caity also knows we don't want to mess with her.

Johnny's Baby Blessing






This weekend we blessed Johnny. It was such a good day. I am so grateful to have him in our family! I just love this boy! I couldn't help but feel what a special little boy he is and feel God's love for him. I hope I can always relay that love to him as we grow up together. During the blessing, I definitely felt what a tremendous responsibility it is to be a mother, as well the confirmation that it is what I am supposed to be doing right now. So grateful for the opportunity.

Above: He's like, "mom, enough with the pictures already."


Below: Johnny is telling me all about his day. The cousins.

(yeah, I know the lighting is bad, and Caity is doing her "mean caity" face see post below, but it is believe it or not...it is the best one of the three of them....at least of Noah. He is so cute.- Noah is my brother, James' boy.)


Caity helping get Johnny dressed.
Us. Can't believe we are 4 now! Weird.

Caity was so excited for her brother.

And she showed it so well...


Me and my little guy


John III, John V, and John IV.
It was a big day for him...his smile still makes me blush.

Choices and Mean Caity.


  • Sooo.....our conversation today:

  • Me: Caity, I am hopping in the shower, and when I get out we are going to get dressed, and then we are going to the library, ok?

  • Caity: Mom. Here's the ting. Mommy get in shower now,then mommy's hair is wet at libwary. If mommy go libwary first- then Taity will read her NEW books while mommy det in the showers. Its your choice, ok?

  • Me: Well, I think I am going to get in the shower.

  • Caity: Oops, Mommy, that is the wrong choice.

  • Me: But I don't want to smell like moldy cheese!

  • Caity: Taity dikes cheese!

  • Me: Soooo, you think we should go to the library first?

  • Caity: Oh! Good Choice, Mommy! I so proud of you! Dank you for going to library first!

  • Me: No, Caity I really need to shower.

  • Caity: oh.....ok. But I didn't warn ya.

  • Me: Thank you, Caity.

  • Caity: Your delcome.

Meet Mean Caity



And Nice Caity:


Also, lately Caity has been doing this Doctor Jeckle and Mr. Hyde thing- like there is "Mean Caity" and "Nice Caity" and I usually have to ask which Caity I am talking to you. "Today I am MEEEEAN Taity! You no want me! I meeeen!" With the meanest snarl on her face. And then I will tell her that I like the nice Caity and that I want the nice Caity back, and her voice will get all sugary and she will say, "Oh I so sorry, mommy. I am nice now." It doesn't sound as funny as it does in person. Especially because mean Caity mostly comes out when Johnny is getting too much of our attention and we just hear Caity in the background, "Dats it! I am Meeeeean now. I a MEAN witch. You no want me! eh eh eh!" So weird. "Caity, are you ready to be nice Caity yet?" "I no know yet! OK???" "Caity you really need to be nice." "I KNOW WHAT YOUR SAYING!!! (insert nice Caity) and I sooo sorry, mommy. I be nice taity, in a minute."
