My baby is 2!!!!

Jett is 2.  Sound the alarm. Something is wrong.
I'm still in denial that he turned 1, and now he's 2? 
I no longer have a baby, or even a toddler. 
He's a kid.  A strong-willed, humorous, snuggly, hyper, blond-headed, blue-eyed kid.

2 years ago, I was staring into this precious little face.

Just one year ago, we were here:

And my baby boy now?
He's 2. 

 He's my love. 

You make my world go round, Jett.  I'm so blessed to be your mother.
Happy Birthday, angel boy.  I love you so much!

My Isaac is 4!!!

Saturday (yesterday) was Isaac's birthday, and I would have posted something, but we were too busy having FUN all day!!! 

Friday night, he chose to spend his night out at the mall, to play in the play area, and he also wanted to eat there. So we all had a delicious, nutritious (or not) dinner of food court food. :)  Afterwards, we went to Toys R Us, so he could pick out a birthday present.  He picked a stuffed Mario (go figure.) and a new used Mario Galaxy game.  
Saturday morning, I made him a breakfast of red and blue (Mario and Sonic) pancakes,

let him open the rest of his presents from us,

and then we headed to the pumpkin patch!

 We came home and got ready to have his party with just a few friends and family.  Grandma Carol made him a Sonic cake (much more special than a store bought cake, in my opinion) and we also had pizza, to offset the sugar in the cake.  We tried to go with nothing but organic health food.  Can you tell? ;) He opened his gifts, and he just played and played with his friends till about 11:30 that night, then he crashed.  Oh, I forgot to mention that half-way through his party, after eating pizza, and before gift-opening, he fell asleep on the recliner. :)  He had to take a nap, his party was that INSANE!  =)

{are you noticing a theme throughout these pictures?  Sonic and Mario are like family to us. :) }

{Isaac with his Sonic cake - made with love by grandma!}

I'd say he had a pretty spectacular birthday! :) 

I truly cannot believe he's 4.  I know I say that about every kid, and every birthday they have.  and I mean it each time.  Don't kids grow too fast?  Time goes at about 10x normal speed after you have kids.  True? 

My little Ike the Spike is growing up, and there's nothing I can do to stop it. 
I love you more than you can imagine, Isaac.  Sometimes I feel like my heart will burst, with all the love I have for you!  You will always be my sweet little Humble Bumble.   I love you!  Happy 4th Birthday!

5. Snuggly puppy.  She was so little!  She's growing fast!

1.  Jett swinging in the backyard
2. Elijah - I'm not exactly sure what he's doing.  I told him to stand in front of me to take a pic, and this was how he posed.  I've learned not to ask questions.
3. and 4.  We The boys spotted the tractors as we were coming out of Sears.
5.  Chloe's first ballet class

Laney's horseback lessons are going great!  She still loves it and every week she counts down the days till Monday!  Last week, her teacher started letting her learn how to do barrels. She just trotted her horse (Cowgirl...her favorite horse!) around, instead of running (of course), but it was still fun for her. I took a video of it. (Please ignore me talking during the beginning. Her instructor was telling me about something.)

Things I never want to forget

  • Elijah playing by himself in his room with his magna-doodle.  He loves to just write out words as they pop into his mind. 
  • Isaac's snuggles.  No matter what time of day it is, I can look at Isaac and say, "I didn't snuggle you all morning!" (which is always, always not true...we snuggle ALL the time!) and he'll say "How did we let that happen?!", and run right over to me and give me the biggest hug and kisses.  Sometimes the roles are reversed, and he'll be the one that starts it by looking at me and saying "I didn't snuggle you all morning!"  It's my favorite.
  • Laney's helpful attitude.  It never fails - when I'm trying to do 5 things at once, and Laney is anywhere near me, she always asks if there's something she can do.  She cleans up, she takes the dog out, and she helps the boys with whatever they need help with...all without being asked to.  She is such a sweet girl. 
  • Chloe's empathy and soft heart.  She's so wonderful to anyone who's upset or in trouble about something.  She is so concerned about making sure that problems are solved, and everyone is happy.  She's also got a watchful eye for her brothers.  She knows when Jett is somewhere he's not supposed to be or getting into something he knows he shouldn't have, and without batting an eye, she's getting him back to where he needs to be.  It's just second nature to her to keep an eye out for her brothers. 
  • Jett's raspberries on my cheek.  He kisses me on my lips, and then turns my cheek and says "This one" (which sounds more like di-wa) and blows a raspberry instead of a kiss.  And every single time he does it, he laughs hysterically and looks at me like I got you again!  When will you ever learn, mom?

These are just a few things I always want to remember, so I might start posting every once in a while the things I never want to forget, because there are alot!
