Out of no where yesterday Deacon hollered at me and said “look mom, I'm two”. he has been having a hard time getting his thumb to hold his other two fingers down and so when he did it he was super proud! My baby is getting way too big!


I will be a happy mommy if one of my boys plays baseball. I love to watch baseball and think it is super fun! I asked Cayden if he wanted to play soccer or baseball in the fall and he said baseball! I was jumping for joy on the inside! Of course I would never push my kids into sports, but if you want to know a secret of mine it is that deep down i hope that one of my kids plays college sports. i will be that mom with the flag hanging out of my car window, the team sweatshirt with their number on the back, the earrings with the sport of choice hanging down, and the season tickets to their games. Aaron thinks i'm weird! I just say it's a supportive mom!


Yesterday afternoon Shawnah called and told me to bring the boys to her b/c they had free tickets to the Doodlebops! What? I was so excited for the boys and had no idea what i would do with myself with no kids and no plans made. i went to Delia's and got a new shirt, Target and got a new dress, sushi with Maris and then dessert with Maris. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful night with no kids and lots of great adult conversation!! Thanks Shingleton's – you guys truly blessed me and my kids last night! They love you guys and I know you guys love them too!



Today we went to the mall for a baby expo. There were some cool exhibits but the best was the face painting for the kids. Cayden was so excited and changed his mind about 30 times as we waited in line. First he wanted a kitty cat and I tried to discourage that. Not sure why, but a kitty seems kinda girly. Then he wanted a spider. Then clifford. Then a puppy. Then after seeing the little boy in front of us transform into spiderman right before his eyes he went with that. How could he resist!


He loved it! He proceeded to demand that I only refer to him as “spiderman”. Not Cayden, and especially not Diego that he demanded I call him yesterday! At lunch he also informed me that Spiderman doesn't like peas and carrots and therefore he couldn't eat his! Sneaky isn't he!

Deacon didn't get a painting because he fell asleep in line and was not in the mood to be woke up!

Great weekend so far! Anything exciting in your weekend?
