C Memorizes Disney Planes Trailer

My little man is so excited about the release of Disney’s new Planes: Fire & Rescue movie that he has memorized the Disney Planes trailer. I managed to capture it on video tonight and although it’s a bit shaky and you get to listen in on some of Baby Jo’s bedtime crying, it’s still fun. :)

C and Baby Jo Have a Tea Party

I took this video almost two months ago and I can’t believe I didn’t share it with you here! I love how these two play together – you know, when they’re not fighting. ;) They love playing with their tea pot, and here they are having a tea party together.

Baby Jo jumps in her brother’s trampoline!

My little one-year-old girl went into her brother’s trampoline and instantly knew what to do. She was jumping and having herself a grand ol’ time! We’ve had to close off the trampoline area with a large gate, because they wanted to be in there at the same time. It started to turn into a toddler cage match. ;)

My Son is Crying Because “Everybody’s Got Armpits.”

C was putting together his puzzle and must have had an epiphany that terrified him: everybody’s got armpits.

Moms are awesome. #WorldsToughestJob

If you haven’t seen this viral video yet, by American Greetings and Cardstore, you must watch it! They created a real job posting, posted it on real sites and conducted real interviews. Their working job title was, “Director of Operations.” It gave me goosebumps! Enjoy. :)

C Greets Baby Jo: “Hi, Little Fishy!”

I think C has been watching too much “Finding Nemo” lately, because he’s started greeting his sister with, “Hi, Little Fishy!” You’ll also hear him saying, “Hi, little guy!” Some family members say this to him. :)

C Gets Frustrated While Playing Flappy Bird

This kid cracks me up sometimes. He’s been into playing Flappy Bird lately, but he gets really frustrated every time. He’ll groan in disgust or say, “COME ON!” We decided to capture one of these moments today. Hope you enjoy our little display of silly faces, too. ;)

C and Baby Jo Play Chase!

These two have the best time together! Tonight they were chasing each other around underneath the table and just laughing together. LOVE them. :)

Hubster Just Made My Day

I’ve been feeling bad about myself lately (stupid Zoloft). What we need to remember is that our loved ones will love us no matter what.

I’m up really early this morning. C climbed into bed with us at 5am and wouldn’t stop rubbing my face. So after he fell back asleep I got up and went to my laptop. Opened it up to see this video that Hubster put together for me when I went to bed early last night. He’s the greatest.

C Uses Cozy Cover to Play Peekaboo with Baby Jo

There’s no doubt that these two adore each other. I was happy to have captured this moment the other day when we returned from our errands. Don’t mind our messy home – I prefer to call it, “lived in.” ;)

Baby Jo was still in her carseat and her big brother decided to play peekaboo with her, using her Cozy Cover as part of the game. They were having so much fun laughing together!

The Great Cheerios Cleanup Standoff of 2013

C and I are a little too much alike. And by that, I mean that he’s basically me in male form.

With his sensory processing disorder, health problems and the terrible twos, we’ve been dealing with some pretty intense behavioral issues. I’ve started to really crack down on the bad behavior. The result is an epic battle of wills between two people who are basically the same.

We Like to Rock Out in the Car to Karmin

Baby Jo is Cooing!

Well, she’s been cooing for a while, but now she has conversations! She likes to “talk” and then listens while you talk back. Sometimes she does that for 30 minutes. It’s adorable. I don’t remember C talking this much! Here she is cooing this morning:

C Loves to Dance!

Music in a commercial?  Intro to a tv show?  Random beat we overhear?

C will start dancing to it.

The boy loves to dance!   Once in a while, he’ll start dancing even when there isn’t any music.  It’s so funny!

One of C’s Tantrums

About a month ago, C started the whole “tantrum-throwing” phase of toddlerhood.  It’s quite a joy. (sarcasm intended)  ;)  He throws tantrums when someone leaves, when he hears the word “no,” or for no apparent reason.  Here is one of those “no apparent reason” tantrums.

It only made C laugh harder!

And here’s a little video to enjoy…

The Inspirational Story of Caine’s Arcade

If you haven’t seen “Caine’s Arcade” on Youtube, it’s an inspirational story of a 9-year-old boy’s imagination coming to life.  The 10-minute film is such an uplifting story about people coming together and to make a boy’s dream come true.  It gave me goosebumps, especially after I heard on the Today Show this morning that $100,000 has already been raised for Caine’s scholarship fund!  What an awesome little boy.
