My Boys: LOTS of Recent Photos

I've been taking lots of pictures of my boys (shocking, I know), but have been so busy working on baby presents that I haven't gotten a chance to share my pics. Here's lots of pictures and some mini-updates on life with my boys.

N with one of his many "walkers."

N and J looking out the window in N's room.

Pepper stopping N from climbing the stairs. He's quick these days and will make it to the top before you turn around. Luckily, Pepper likes to lie on the stairs and chew her bone--so she stops him for me. She takes her job very seriously. It's pretty adorable.

J and N in the car cart at Lowe's. This was N's first time "driving" and he LOVED it!

J helping N walk from the patio to the grass in the backyard. N is doing a lot of walking these days. He usually takes anywhere between 4 and 12 steps before he reaches his destination or falls and crawls.

N watching Pepper in the backyard. If you look closely, you can see his little curl of hair sticking out at the bottom of the back of his head.

After she was done running around, Pepper brought N her toy so they could play. She loves to play with N. I love the look Zoe is giving the two of them.

J told me, "Mom, take a picture of my hands." So I did.

B doing "Daddy duty" as we headed up to get the boys ready for bed.

J playing in the backyard.

J and N playing with the rainwater that had collected in the cupholders of the sand and water table. I love it when they play so nicely together.

N loves to splash in water--I have to keep a close eye on the dogs' water bowl.

N relaxing after a good meal. Silly boy! He's still a good eater and makes me happy because he LOVES peas. I've been fixing mixed veggies. N eats all the peas and some carrots. J eats one kernel of corn. It's better than nothing. I'll take it.

We went to the King Tut exhibit at the Dallas Museum of Art as an early birthday present for B. Not really the best thing for a one year old and a three year old, but we still had fun. When J was asked to tell his grandma what he saw he told her, "Water, blue things, and a movie." So that about sums it up!

Hope you all are having a good week. In other family news, my cousin Christie is doing her last rounds of chemo this week and next week. So that has us all thrilled! Please keep her in your prayers that she's not in too much pain as these last few doses of chemo are going to be extra strong to make sure the cancer's butt is thoroughly kicked to kingdom come. Despite the pain, Christie is so happy to be almost done and can't wait to return to work. She's an amazing person and I am so proud of the way she and her husband have handled this whole ordeal.

Ooooh I'm so jealous of the museum trip!! I love Egyptology.
Very glad to hear Christie is nearing the end of the treatment. I will continue to pray that it is not too painful and that it kicks cancer's @$$!!
