6 Months Old!

Victor is 6 months old today! Can you believe it? He is currently working on his 8th tooth. He can roll from front to back, and back to front. He loves to grab onto a lion rattle he has and just shake it, and it's one of the cutest things I love to watch. He is in awe with Derrick, and honestly could care less if Eve is around. He can sit for a few seconds, but isn't too sturdy to be in the middle of the floor yet on his own. He's getting very good at running around in his walker, and the kids have learned how to put their chairs in their toy room so that Victor can't roll into their party! He is very interested in food - he has tried sweet potatoes and carrots and doesn't have a problem with either one. It's so cute when he smacks his lips and tries to savor each spoonful :o) We'll be trying peas in the next day, I'm interested to see how that goes!

New Pics

I wonder if this will make her leave me alone...

Eve doesn't always play with Victor, so this was a big deal for her to HOLD him!

My two boys!

I haven't heard Dirk giggle like that in such a long time. All three were having a great time laughing, at really nothing at all. Just laughing!

Goofy Dirk. Sweet little Victor. They just LOVE to be by one another!

They are laughing at Eve doing something. I couldn't move the camera back far enough to catch her in the pic in time :o(

Learning how to sit up like a big boy!

I'm SO big!
(or learning how to tell Mom how big the fish was!)

He had SO much fun playing with a newspaper! His hands were covered in black ink. So we won't be doing that again.

Here's a link to the new swimsuit Eve has! She would NOT pose for you, sorry. She ran downstairs to show Dad and Dirk, then stripped it off 2 seconds later.

7th Tooth!

Well, it broke thru. Tooth #7. This was one of the worst ones yet. But I'm hoping the worst is over. I haven't heard him shreak like that for a long time. Tylenol wouldn't help, ibuprofen wasn't working, Orajel, Anbesol, nothing. Poor little guy. It's not completely in, I can just feel the tip of it. But like I said, I hope the worst is over!

I'm heading out tonight for Mommies and Margaritas with a bunch of friends! I'm so excited! I love this day - we do it once a month!

Oh, and Evie took a really big magnet to our TV this afternoon. Now we have a big green spot and a big purple spot on the TV. Kids. I've said it before, I'll say it again - kids don't cost that much. It's what they break that costs so much!

I've got cute kids :o)

I like this first one - V drooled all over D's face!
This one below - D got a hold of the camera before I knew it and pushed all kinds of buttons, so it's blurry :o(

New Shoes

Here are Evie's new "Princess shoes" from Gran! She loves them and won't take them off. We'll be heading into getting her pics taken and I hope she doesn't get them dirty until then!

Happy Anniversary!

Happy 33rd Anniversary to the best parents ever! :o)

Hope you two had a great day today. Thanks for being great role models for us kids!

*hugs* *kisses* from the little ones!

Thanks for the outfit, G-Auntie KaKa!

So happy to have a cute outfit :o)

He loves being around Daddy!

Victor is starting to understand so much. Ryan tells him to say "up", Victor giggles and says, "ah" or "eh" and then Ryan tosses him up in the air. He LOVES this game! I have him stand on my lap and I say "Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss" and lean in, he opens up his mouth and I give him a kiss and he giggles. Gotta love those slopping baby kisses!

Here's a video of Victor giggling! He's SO ticklish!

Eve's New Pony

We finally used Eve's birthday money from Gran! Here's what she got!

The Many Faces of Derrick

I had fun asking Dirk to make faces. Here they are for your enjoyment!

This first one wouldn't let me caption it. He's a monster!
Super excited!

Very mad



PS - He knows Gran likes his hair spiked. He needs a haircut!


So, the other day Derrick went with Ryan to a weigh-in at a fishing tournament. While they were gone, I realized I am no longer looking forward to when Derrick goes to Kindergarten. Why you ask? Because while Derrick was gone, EVIE WOULDN'T STOP TALKING TO ME! Oh my! I cannot believe how much that girl talks!! So, I finally got her to stay in the play room for a while and she turned the music on. When she came back towards me, I started dancing really goofy and asked if she'd join me. She made a horrific face, turned around, went back to the play room and shut off the music. When she returned to me, she looked at me and said, "You stop dancing!" AHAHAHAHA! What a little turd!

6th Tooth!

Yesterday Victor's 6th tooth came thru. He's doing much better with the whole teething thing, now that he's older and "experienced"! Ha ha!

Last fall, there were 5 of us servers that were expecting babies! Ellie and Jenaya arrived in September. Brooklyn came in October. Then Lucas in November and Victor finished them off in December. Rickeeta and Jenaya are moving to Florida next week, so we wanted to get together with all the AppleBabies before she left. Unfortunately, they didn't make it. But we had fun nonetheless!

Brooklyn is the little girl in pink pants and a white and pink hoodie. Lucas is the little guy in blue. Victor is wearing white with black stripes on the colors and pockets. And Ellie has purple pants on. Aren't they adorable!?! Brooklyn kept trying to grab all the babies' faces and made Ellie and Lucas cry. She's such a bully. No one will push that girl around! Ha ha! I loved watching Lucas, as he is 6 weeks older than Victor, to see how much our lives will be changing in the next few weeks with creeping and sitting and even crawling! Ellie loved Victor's pacifier and would take it out of his mouth every time I put it back into his mouth!

E washing her hair

I went upstairs to find Evie washing her hair in the sink. Not sure why. I tried to ask her. Something about juice. Then I stopped asking. I didn't want to know!

Goofy D

Here's my goofy boy! I still can't get him to smile normally unless I somehow trick him and snap a picture before he realizes I tricked him. 1 out of 3 ain't too bad if you ask me! :o)

5 Months Old

I don't think I put some pics up of Victor now that he is 5 months old. So here you go!

He's back to his old happy self. His 5th tooth just broke thru last night. He likes to make that face on the left there, and then try to blow thru his lips. He's learned how to blow raspberries already. The one on the right - gotta love seeing those baby teeth!

So, here's an interesting conversation I had with Derrick tonight. A little back story for you - Derrick doesn't like lettuce, he calls it "salad". We have also been trying to keep him from finding little "goodies" in his nose and eating them. *BLEH!* Anyways. I made a chicken broccoli hotdish tonight, and here's how the conversation went...

D - I don't like this.
M - You need to try it. You don't know if you like it until you try it.
D - I don't like salad.
M - There's no salad in it.
D - What's the green stuff?
M - It's green boogers (obviously joking and trying to get him to say we don't eat boogers)
D - No it's not!
M - We don't eat boogers, do we?
D - I only eat yellow boogers. The green ones are yucky.

I can't even write this without gagging! Oh Derrick...
