“Grandma” according to Isaac

I asked Isaac to tell me what a ‘grandma’ is, here’s his answer:

“Someone who is old…someone who knows us…someone who lives far away…someone who is nice.”

Handsme Little Devil

His shirt says it all.

Taking a rest.

Haha! Love this face!

What a fun age! Each day brings a new discovery. I never tire of watching him grow and learn new things.  I look forward to tomorrows little surprises from Lincoln. At the same time, I wish he wasn’t growing so fast!

Some things I love about Lincoln:

When we walk into his room after he wakes up, he immediately says, “downstairs.” He says is pretty clearly and we know just what it means.

He has a little hand gesture he makes when he sees a kitty or a doggy. He thinks he is calling them over to him. He learned it from me. I make the same gesture to call our cat over to us.

He will answer a question by saying “yes” or shaking his head ‘no’ while saying “mmmm-mmmm.” He usually answers ‘no’ to questions so the boys love to ask him questions like, “Is Mommy in charge of you?” or “Do you love Daddy?” or “Are you a good boy?” Ahhh, the humor of little boys!

I love how excited he gets when I tell him it’s bath time.  He lets out this big, excited scream.

He has a new expression he uses when something is funny. He scrunches up his nose and laughs.

When he sees a baby on TV he says “baby” in his own way. And then if I say, “Do you like the baby?” He tilts his head to the side and makes a sound that means ‘love’ to him. If you tell him to ‘love’ something he always puts his head on it while making the same little sound. It’s very cute.

I love watching him play outside. It’s one of his favorite things to do. He is amazed by everything and just takes it all in. The other day he looked straight up into the sky and kept saying something over and over. He was fascinated by it.

This little guys in tons of fun!

Hearts and Kisses

The boys were very excited over their little love-filled treat bags! I love their smiles.

We had a nice lunch with heart shaped pizza and cookies!

My littlest Valentine.

Our annual heart-shaped sugar cookies

I wrote the word “kiss” on one of my cookies. When Ethan read it, he acted silly (like a typical 6-year-old boy!) and told Isaac. I told Isaac that I made it for Daddy. I told him that Daddy would have to kiss me in order to eat the cookie. Next thing I knew, I could hear Isaac in the distance telling Warren about the cookie. He then came running back and said, “Mommy, Daddy gives kisses for free!”

Woohoo! Valentines in the mail!

My mom sent each one of the boys a valentine’s day card with 3 dollars inside. Ethan and Isaac were dancing around the kitchen waving their money in the air. Lincoln was excited, too, but had no idea why!

Cozy Friends

Lincoln and Josie are just so stinkin’ cute together! They will be great friends. He gets so excited when I talk about her and he even says “Josie” in his own little way.

Something funny Lincoln? 🙂

New FREE Stroller!

I babysit for a little girl who lives down the street from us. She comes after school for about and hour and a half a couple days a week. Her mom gave this stroller to me. They bought it and never ended up using it. It’s in brand new condition! It’s perfect for my situation with an almost 5-year-old who gets tired on walks still. He can stand or sit and take a rest when he needs to. I LOVE it!

Fun Times!

We have been getting together with the Mabrys for a weekly dinner and game night.  It’s been a lot of fun and has helped these winter months pass a little faster . We played Cranium once, but now we are on a Pictionary phase. Nathan bought this HUGE white board at Home Depot. We laughed when we saw it, but it’s perfect! We included the kids on a couple of rounds. They, of course, loved it too! Here they are guessing what the Daddys are drawing. Can you figure it out? Oh, I think it’s worth mentioning the Falks are undefeated! 😉

The highlight of the night…warm chocolate chip cookies!
