I have a new baby. I wrap him up, feed him, change his diaper, talk to him, make him giggle, etc. I've wondered when Robert would have a baby, too. Well, now he has one, actually several.

Thooook is the brown gorilla, Fluffy is the large sheep, Fluffy Nini is the small sheep, Fluffy Kingking is the elk. There are more babies not pictured: Fluffy Thoop is a horse and Fluffy Egg is a bear. He wraps them up, talks to them, makes them giggle, etc. He told me the other day when he was playing with his babies, "I'm a good Momma."

We don't eat people!

Robert and Andy have this game where they nibble on each other and laugh. It's so cute to watch. The other day Andy nibbled on Robert and Robert turned to his Dad and said, "No Dad, we don't eat people. Spit it out." We laughed beside ourselves but Andy bent over and mocked spitting out Robert's fingers or toes or whatever it was he had eaten. It was pretty cute.

Poky Parks

I've decided to take the boys to as many parks in Pocatello as we can this summer. We have a few parks that we frequent quite readily. They are close to our house so we can load up the stroller and walk there in just a few minutes. This is Ammon Park.

It's pretty fun. There's just one portion of the playground that Robert felt comfortable climbing and playing on. Everything else was too big--monkey bars, a zip line thing.

We didn't need anything else though. He had fun, I had fun, Hank slept and Ricki Bobbi childded under the bench (on a leash of course).

Smiley Baby

One of the best parts of motherhood is seeing those first smiles.

Knowing that despite the tears (his and mine) we can gaze into each other's eyes and giggle together.

When all is said and done, those smiles shed beams of sunshine into my day.

Robert loves his hat. No one else get to wear his hat. It is his hat. The bond of brothers was established when Robert on his own accord decided to let Hank wear his hat.

I'm sure Hank is smiling under the hat too.

When the cupboard gives you spaghetti...

Today we went grocery shopping early, but came back without the baby shower gift I meant to include in the trip. So we fed Hank and loaded up again--the baby shower is tomorrow so it's today or never. Our cousins came over for lunch and playing outside which was way fun. Robert loves playing with his cousins. After they left I decided to make more granola bars. I opened the cupboard to grab the nuts and the spaghetti noodles were laying on their side tipped slightly toward the floor and out they came! There were noodles on the counter, the floor, the stove. I must of picked up 3 or 4 servings. I thought to myself as I was picking them up, I could really let this get to me. OR I could laugh and put them away in an upright jar so it doesn't happen again. I put them in the jar.
