I don't think he has put down his "baby like him" since we operated on it.

We visited the Fire Station today.  Cade has his baby too.

Then came haircuts.  Cade looks like such a big boy.  His eyes are crazy though.  They  seem to rotate between green, blue, and gray.

Grant almost looks like a big boy!

Here's a rare picture of Cade and I.  While I think it's a pretty good picture of me, Cade looks like a total cheeseball.  His teeth really aren't that jacked up.  He was in the middle of eating.

He looks better here.

Cade has been very interested in Grant's buttons for a few weeks .  Grant refuses to let Cade get near him, so I decided to make both of the boys "babies" with tubes.  Cade was very interested in his baby until Grant picked his up and was very excited saying that now his baby looked just like him.  Cade got sad and said that he didn't have a button and his baby didn't look like him anymore, so I took the button out of Cade's baby.  Now everyone is happy!


One minute before I took this picture, Grant was arguing that he wasn't sleepy.  I looked over and saw him like this.  He is actually asleep with his knee locked to keep him upright.

Here he is after I transferred him to the couch.

Do you have any idea how much noise 3 pots, 2 bowls, 4 lids, 1 strainer, 2 toddler boys, and 4 drumsticks can make?  I promise you don't want to know!


I put the bows on my Dad's birthday present!  Happy Birthday Gramps!


I bought these reading glasses in the dollar spot at Target several months ago.  Cade still wears them at least once a week.

Cade blowing his whistle that he found in Sissy's room. Look closely!

Grant looking goofy!

Shiny lips


Daddy took this.  (btw, what does the ice cream scoop in the background look like?)


Playdoh time


I have no idea!

Grant's new backpack

Cade is seriously dramatic.  He said, "My balloon broken.  It not my party anymore."  He then was able to cry for about 30 minutes about his balloon.  (bad pics from my phone)

Grant's pretty capable of drama too!


Pretty girls!

Dirty Boy!

"worker" as they call it


Since Grant has been sick for the most part of the last few months, we thought we would try to work on getting him to wear a mask, though I can't imagine he's actually going to wear it when he isn't playing doctor.
Dr. Grant

The sad part is that Cade actually likes to wear it.

A rare picture of Cade and me

such concentration

He's ready to go!

Sometimes you just have to laugh at this kid.  He did all of this by himself, and then got very upset that I wouldn't lock it.  At my mom's insistence, I am now going to drill holes in the lid since I have a feeling Grant will be locked in here against his will.

Here's the side view.

Like father, like son. (I have no idea what is up with George's eyes though.)


I love this video from a few weeks ago.  I won't name the featured adult since she would kill me!

I got stuck on a long phone call.  This is Cade's cue to come up with anything he can to make a huge mess.
This is a box of Carpet Fresh and a huge glass of Diet Coke.  I asked him what he happened and he  said, "I don't know.  I was playing with my fire house".

As I was cleaning up the carpet mess, he got into the chalkboard paint and hit Grant in the head with the paintbrush.  Grant freaked, so I had most of it cleaned up before I could snap a picture.   It's a really good thing Cade is so cute!

Delaney had a doctor's appointment today, so I enjoyed a much needed girls' day.
Grant didn't feel so hot...

so Cade destroyed his room without Mom to make him clean it up.

 Since today wasn't an "I'm so cute that you want to take pictures of me," and more of a "hey look, mommy is gonna lose it" type of day, here are a couple of old pics that I found on this computer.

This was one of Grant's favorite things to do in the hospital, play monkey.

Man, they have aged!

Our day of appointments started with a chest x-ray.  This was the first time we had no tears.

This is the fish tank in Dr. McElroy's office.  Every fish has been assigned a member of our family.  I'm trying not to be offended that tbe biggest ugliest fish in the tank is me.

I just thought he looked sweet here, though his hair is a mess.

Our favorite doctor, Dr. Osuntokun, is worth the drive to see, but it made for a long day.

Cade really wanted me to take this picture.

I have no idea.  George took this picture.  For some reason, Cade is sitting in the sink with a golf club, wet pants, and a crown.

The night isn't complete without a musical performance from Cade, usually in costume.

I think he's praying for another episode of Caillou.
