Come out come out where ever you are!

I added a new counter to my blog the other day (and broke my old one in the meantime). The old one is still there just VERY small now.

The new one shows where people are visiting my blog from. I am honored that so many people from so many different places have come to look.

PLEASE leave me some comments so I know who you are. I would love to hear from you and what you think!!!! I am going to print it out someday and save it for the kids as a keepsake and would love to have comments from people who visit.

Also wanted to share a hilarious video from youtube that a friend sent to me.

Little fish

Caden can now swim accross the pool all by himself. He has been coming very close for a few weeks. Tonight he told me he was going to try and did it without problem. Then he repeated the feat about a million times. Each time telling me "one more time Mommy". He is very proud of himself and I couldn't be any happier.

Spencer's first homework

Here is Spencer's first homework assignment. He had to decorate his paper plate with things that make him and his family unique. Of course I had to help him, but he really did come up with the ideas and decide where to put the stuff.
He has a picture of himself with his missing tooth, he drew a picture of him with Mommy and Daddy, the lizard is becuase he likes to collect bugs and other critters ect. He had to take it to school and tell his class all about it. He was so proud of it.

Bus rider

I put Spencer on the school bus this morning for the first time and I am still traumatized. He was absolutely thrilled that I finally conceded and let him ride the bus to school.
He was just too cute waiting patiently and then getting on. I am sure I will not be able to take another picture though. lol
He had a huge smile getting off the bus this afternoon too. I asked him if he wanted to take the bus again or if he wanted me to drive him. He wants to be a bus rider EVERY day.
And yes, I did get on the bus and take his picture. He won't let me anywhere near the bus with my camera from now on I am sure. I wanted to take full advantage while I could.

My toothless baby

Well its happened..........Spencer has lost his first tooth. He lost it at school yesterday during lunch. He noticed blood on his sandwich and then couldn't find it. mmm mmm good.
He looks so cute with the little space too. He was very upset that he lost the tooth and was convinced the tooth fairy would not come now. I assured him that she knew it fell out. He drew a picture of his missing tooth and cut it out and then had to draw a picture of himself with all his teeth to make sure the tooth fairy knew it was his.
He carefully placed it under his pillow before he went to bed.
Being the obsessive Mom that I am, I had to search online for a tooth fairy certificate and gave him two five dollar bills and two quarters all covered in gold fairy dust and placed them under his pillow with the certificate. Bob was sure he was going to aspirate on the fairy dust.
He got up in the morning and came running in to my room telling me the tooth fairy had indeed not come!!!! We went back to his room and looked under his pillow and he was thrilled!!!
He wanted to know if she was going to bring him that much money for every tooth. I think the tooth fairy would have to mortgage her wand if she did.

Where is my baby?

Seems like just yesterday that Spencer was getting his first tooth, now I notice one is loose.
He is just growing up way too fast!!!!!!
I had to post my favorite baby picture of him when he was just one day old and then a couple of his cute little baby face - just for old times sake. You know I had to go back and reminisce and look at old pictures.
I wish there was a way to be able to freeze time and not have your kids get any older and grow up.
