Long Time, No Blog!

We really need to get this kid a tool belt.

Well, as you can imagine, the craziness of a newborn (5 weeks already!) has had me quite busy at home leaving no time to blog. Any free moments have been spent napping, showering, playing with Jack and I can't forget to mention my 5 trips out of the house (4 to the grocery store and one dinner for Jerret's birthday).
JJ has been quite the little helper. He is standing at the ready with a pacifier anytime Lynde makes even a whimper. He wants to play with her so badly. The other day I busted him trying to feed her a goldfish cracker and had to explain that Lynde only drinks milk and doesn' t have any teeth.
JJ is going through a pretend stage and some days acts like a lion (from Lion King, of course), other days he is a puma (Go Diego Go!), and sometimes a mean tiger (Kung Fu Panda). He uses these opportunities to go around the house licking people and will act like he is going in for a kiss and out the tongue comes. Lynde gets licked the most (see below). He has so much energy that we are starting to discuss which activities we should enroll him in when he turns three. The kid is seriously crazy strong and has defined muscles in his arms. The other day he was actually doing push-ups (perfect ones at that) in the living room. I have no idea where he learned this move because I haven't seen Jerret do a push up in a few years and I probably haven't done one since I was 20!

I taught him Saturday night how to do the perfect push up, as I have to do 500 a day with my regimen. Next we will be working on lunges.

They must have done push ups in their orphanages - Aliya has very strong arms as well. She doesn't hesitate tackling her older siblings - even though she knows she's gowing to get her tail "kicked"!!!

Lindye looks so big! they grow up so darn fast..i didn't really appreciate that until recently. Zeb is a great pretender too...except he likes to have tea parties!
