Uhhm... Guess What?

Okay, Okay... Not a lot of excuses... Although- if you look at the dates- we haven't posted since last March- Some 9 Months Ago...

Hmm- Oh yeah- Boden's getting a little brother! Here in the next week and a half actually- So, I'd have to say that our excuse is that we've been slowly coming to grips with the fact that our sanity is about to completely leave us.

January 10th is the day that is set at the hospital for P3 to come into this world (the 3rd Peanut if you will). So- in the mean time, we've been working with Boden to entertain himself... short of sticking him in a closet and ignoring him. The B. has now figured out my I-Pod... If I had more time tonight, we have some great video of him rocking out... but this will have to do.

Christmas with the Cowboy Gear

Everybody- I give you CORN!

So- Our apologies for not really being able to update you on the last while... But the big highlights are a trip to California, Boden's turning 2 (in May!), everybody we know getting pregnant, and PapaSteve got knocked out by a goose (hopefully more of that to come later).

At any rate- Give us a prayer... we're about a week and a half to having another boy hitting the ground...

Love you all-

Uhmm... Sorry- Its March Now

Well- I can give you a litany of excuses- but instead, I'll just do what you came here for and show da'boy (That's Boden's multi-cultural name)

As you may or may not know- Its been a couple of months of holding our breath and waiting for news for many of our friends and family. New to the crew in the last six weeks are Carter Jacob and Corrina Marie. Mr. Carter decided to make a dramatic entrance into the world for Jake and Whitney- and Miss Corrina decided she'd rather stay warm and not brave the world. Carter (friend) and Corrina (cousin) were supposed to arrive at about the same time, but do to their individual birthing perogatives- there ended up being five or six weeks between them... All things are good though- and Mr. B. gets to go visit his new cousin next week...

Boden is approaching 2 now... he's about 5 or 6 weeks away I suppose. His little personality is starting to be very clear- and I suppose some of this is just developmental. But he is becoming very strongly opinionated about his clothes for the day- and he's also going through little obsessions... case in point. I'm not sure if you can figure out the theme of these pictures- all taken within about a week of each other...

The boy is certainly going to be a country bumpkin. At least that's what it seems. That or a rock star- but we'll just see. Its been next to impossible to keep him inside- it may just be spring fever- but it doesn't seem to matter what time of day it is or how cold it is outside. About the only thing that's held him back is when he's sick- and even then, he'd usually rather spend a few hours in the backyard if possible. B. is all about critters right now- unfortunately for the neighbors, we've been out in our PJs looking at elk at 6:15 in the morning- simply because we must.

Boden is now starting to be a chatter-box as well. Mom and dad are going to have to start watching their mouths I'm afraid... in the last couple weeks, Boden has boldly declared that there are "no dump" (in his pants, that is), that "I'm cute," that he's had "good burps" and other related and inappropriate verbage. He's also discovered that he and I are "both men" and that he'd like "momma, outside, now." I'm not quite sure who to blame for this- but its likely Elway.

Currently, he's been in a bit of a momma's boy stage. Okay- not a bit... a whole lot. Momma is just about the only thing in the universe. If he
could, he'd be strapped to her. But on a rare occasion, we do have some fella time... like trying to point out the moon while we're laying in the backyard. I'm thinking that we just need a few more trips to bass pro or something.

At any rate- that's about it for now. Summer is coming- so I'm sure we'll have more

Crazy hair, crazy face, and crazy independence

So once again, its been a while...and boy is Boden changing. Getting a little defiant, picking up a word a day at least, and about as funny as they come. We've been working on counting, the ABCs and body parts. Just today on the ride home from daycare, I asked Boden where his nose was (correctly identified), then how many holes it had...9. His favorite numbers are 2 and 9, favorite colors - blue and yellow. He is also really interested in his "belbo" (elbow) and Welway (Elway)...we figure correct pronunciation will come with time.
His imagination seems to be in overdrive...
but we can't always figure out what he is thinking....exhibit A
Although most definitely all boy, Boden is also becoming quite independent, as is evidenced in his dressing. He really wanted THESE socks on RIGHT NOW... and in case you can't tell, he is wearing plaid pj pants, boots, a blue sweat shirt, his camo coat, and on top of it all, a second camo coat that fit at six months while swinging...very styling!
Boden's "Crazy Face" - becoming a legendCrazy hair - always best when waking up from a nap...look at those curls!
