Things We Love This Week

Seth: Being home. He was in California for two weeks working, and as much as we missed him (On about day 11, Easton was talking to him and he suddenly handed me the phone with tears starting to run down his face and ran upstairs. I of course asked Seth what he could have said to upset Easton and he had no idea. When I went up to talk to him, he said "I just miss dad SO much!" and started crying so hard. It was so sad to see.) I'm sure being the one away from the rest of us would be harder. But now he's home and we're having so much fun spending time together before he has to go back out.

Dezi: My boys. They have all been such amazing boys lately and making me laugh and smile SO much. I just can't get enough of them!! :) A while ago Easton asked me why we have freezers and before I could even say one word, Cole jumped in "To put magnets on!" (Hmm... maybe I need to clear it off a little.) The other day they asked if we could make dinosaur cookies, after I said yes, Easton said "I've got a great idea mom! We can make dinosaur cookies to celebrate the baby in your belly!"
Here's pictures of them eating the dinosaur cookies. I had to put in both pictures because in one you need to ignore Easton's crazy face and the other you need to ignore Cole's crazy face.

Easton: Taylor Swift. I don't think he has any idea what she looks like or any song she sings besides "Love Song" but he sure can't get enough of that one. Yesterday the song was on as I pulled up to get gas. As I turned the car off he shouted "Turn that back on!" After I came back from getting gas he very excitedly said "Mom! Guess what?! The radio said Taylor Swift is coming to town! We have to go!" So unless one of his aunts invites him on a date (hint, hint... jk... maybe ;) I think I may be going to see Taylor Swift with Easton. (Not that he gets everything he asks for, I'm just saying it's a possibility.)

Cole: Legos and games. He loves playing and building things. He likes playing the Wii with Easton, but he does not last very long at all. After just a few games, he's asking me if he can play with something else. And those he can play with forever!
He was so proud he built it "bigger than me"

Peyton: Being independent. This is probably more of "Things I Demand" than "Things I Love". He is already not letting me help him get dressed! He even has a pair of shoes he will put on by himself. He just seems way too young to be doing this. The older two didn't start that until... well... hmm... they'd still love me to dress them if I would. When I come in with his clothes he grabs them from me and runs away so I can't "reach" him. And then just keeps trying and trying until he gets the clothes on. One time he was having a lot of trouble with his shirt but he still wouldn't let me help him. He spent half the day shirtless, while taking his shirt everywhere, and every time I asked if I could help him he'd hide the shirt behind his back. This day we were getting ready to go and we put his shoes on. He ran off saying "ja-ja" (jacket) and came back like this. (This is Easton's shirt, he knows what a jacket is, they are all just hanging up high where he can't reach.)

I can't believe your little boy likes Taylor Swift... that is so funny! The fact that he recognizes she is a singer and that he wants to see her in concert.... hilarious! Good luck taking him! That should be a fun mother/son date.... or Auntie/nephew date ;)

Dez, did I miss a blog somewhere saying you are pregnant? Congratulations! How far along are you? Or were your boys just having wishful thinking with their Celbrating dinosaur cookies?

Hope you're feeling well!
