things he has learned to do since we last saw the doctor the doctor just shook his head and said
"November 2nd right"
I said "You mean his birthday? Yeah November 2nd"
"And you were there right?"
"You mean in the delivery room uh yeah I was there"
"O.K. I was just checking to make sure that they didnt give you a three month old at the hospital"
Ryans doctor said that he is the most advanced boy that he has ever seen. :)
O.K. now on to the picture, Ryan and I were sitting on the stoop on the front porch when the cat walked by. Well he was pretty sure that that black cat was the coolest thing he had ever seen and he wanted to get his hands on it. So he kinda does this lunge standy thing and faceplants into the mat which is imbeded with little white rock things. I picked him up and he had road rash all over theleft side of his face. This was one of the first big boo boos but I know that it will not be the last!

One day my mother was out and my dad was in charge of me. I was maybe 2 1/2 years old and had just recovered from an accident.
Someone had given me a little 'tea set' as a get-well gift and it was one of my favorite toys. Daddy was in the living room engrossed in the evening news when I brought Daddy a little cup of 'tea',
which was just water. After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my Mom came home. My Dad made her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of tea, because it
was 'just the cutest thing!' My Mom waited, and sure enough, here I come down the hall with a cup of tea for Daddy and she watches him drink it up.
Then she says, (as only a mother would know... :) 'Did it ever occur to you that the only place that baby can reach to get water is the toilet?'

Cassie getting her face painted. She never sits still for me.
I took this one myself. I can never seem to look normal when I take my own picture.
Ryan was on Jeffs shoulders and the sun was just going down so the sky turned out so blue I love it!
Jessies heart. She was so proud of it. Another great ward party under our belts!

Oh the joys of motherhood
We had this great 10-year-old cat named Jack who just
Jack was a great cat, and the kids would carry him around
And sit on him and nothing ever bothered him. He used to
Hang out and nap all day long on the mat in our bathroom.
We have three kids, and at the time of this story, they were
4 years old, 3 years old, and 1 year old The middle one is
Eli. Eli really loved Chapstick. LOVED it. He kept asking to
Use my Chapstick and then would lose it. Finally one day I
Showed him where in the bathroom I keep my Chapstick and
Explained he could use it whenever he wanted to, but he
Needed to put it right back in the drawer after he finished.
That year on Mother's Day, we were having the typical rush
Around and try to get ready for church with everyone crying
And carrying on. My two boys were fighting over the toy in
The cereal box. I was trying to nurse my little one at the
Same time I was putting on my make-up. Everything was a
Mess, and everyone had long forgotten that this was a
Wonderful day to honor me and the amazing job that is
We finally had the older one and the baby loaded in the car
And I was looking for Eli. I searched everywhere and I
Finally went into the bathroom. There was Eli. He was
Applying my Chapstick very carefully to Jack's ... rear end.
Eli looked right into my eyes and said, 'Chapped.' Now if
You have a cat, you know that he is right -- their little
Bottoms do look pretty chapped. And, frankly, Jack didn't
Seem to mind. The only question to ask at that point was
Whether it was the FIRST time Eli had done that to the cat's
Behind or the hundredth!?!
And THAT is my favorite Mother's Day moment ever because it
Reminds us that no matter how hard we try to civilize these
Glorious little creatures, there will always be that day
When you realize they've been using your Chapstick on the
