Funny Things

Just a few funny moments at our house....

One day we were at the shop and Gabe came in and said, "Mom, I think I left my mind at home today because I just can't remember ANYTHING!"

Today I told the boys they had been watching too much t.v. and they needed to turn it off. Gabe asked me why they couldn't watch a lot of t.v. and I said, "Because if you watch too much t.v. your brain won't work." So Gabe said, "Well your brain really doesn't work because you and daddy watch A LOT of t.v."

Gabe loves to eat shrimp. He'll eat it anyway you make it. So the other night we ordered Chinese food and Matt got him some sort of meal with little tiny shrimp in it. Well while Gabe was eating he started choking on the shrimp. Matt was hitting his back trying to get it to come up, it was a few tense seconds but it came up. After the whole ordeal I looked back at the table and Ryan
 was gone. He had crawled under the table and was just sitting there. I said, "What are you doing down there?" He said, "I didn't want to see Gabe choke on dat food!" Then he got back up into his seat and continued eating. He's had fears of choking ever since he got that nickel stuck in his throat. It was pretty funny that he just slid under the table during the whole ordeal.

As most of you know Ryan loves superheroes. He has a whole drawer full of costumes that he loves to wear. When he's not wearing the costumes he lays them on the floor and gives them some sort of weapon to hold. So basically it looks like a deflated superhero is lying in my hallway. I've taken a couple pictures to show you....

I also found Kate sleeping like this the other day.  It looks so uncomfortable, doesn't it?

Summer Time

Wow! I can't believe I haven't updated since April!! The boys finished soccer last month and we went right into t-ball. This is Gabe's second year of t-ball. We got really lucky with both the boys teams this year because they both have friends on their team. This is Ryan's first year and he's playing blast ball. It's basically like t-ball but instead of running to all the bases they just run to first. The base squeaks when they step on it and it's so cute! Gabe is my little social butterfly and loves the fact that his friends are on his team. He did great at his first game last week. He had lots of fun too! Ryan is a completely different child at home than he is at the ballpark. He's just so shy! At home he's way into sports and he'll the hit the ball as hard as he can and he'll wrestle his brother for the ball. At the ballpark with people he doesn't know quite so well he's just so timid. The first practices he just cried and cried and I was really worried he wouldn't want to play. But we kept at it and at his first game he did so good! He hit the ball and ran to first like he was supposed to. I was so proud!
Kate is growing up! She's crawling around and pulling up like crazy! She's into absolutely everything!! At her last doctors appointment she was 29" long and 18.5 lbs. The doctor told me I needed to fatten her up because she's a bit on the skinny side. So we've started pushing the table foods a little more. She's getting such a little personality. She's becoming more and more ornery. One of her favorite things to do is try to hit the spoon of baby food when I'm feeding her. If she gets it and it gets all over the place she just smiles and laughs at me. She also loves her brothers! She loves watching them wrestle around and she wants to join in so bad! I'm sure one day she'll be giving them a run for their money!
We set up our little pool in the backyard and the kids have been swimming like crazy. Kate went swimming for the first time a couple days ago and she loved it! It's been a good summer so far. We're really looking forward to our vacation to Florida coming up!! The boys are really excited and they ask me everyday if it's time to go to the beach. We can't wait!
