Up, up, and Away

Yes, Ben is pulling up now, and he is into everything. He is such the little busy body, but he always seems to be pretty happy entertaining himself. He tries to follow his brothers everywhere. He especially likes the TV, DVD player, and daddy's Playstation (which is a huge no-no). He has even had to have his little hands spanked a couple of times lately :( I can't believe that my baby is getting so big.


So Max has finally mastered the art of Heeleying (?). Anyway, he got these shoes for Christmas and now wants to wear them everywhere. He has discovered how fast he can go down the driveway (much to the dismay of the knees of all of his pants). He even goes for a quick spin before we head to school in the morning.
As you can see not all trips down the driveway are successful, but he actually does not cry that much because I just tell him to go take off the shoes if he is going to cry!!

This picture is dedicates to my mother. This picture shows Sam in his usual manner when he does not get a nap in the afternoon. Thanks Mom.

Great pics, and Max just may be the most coordinated kid his age that I know. Give Mom a break, you only get free child care year round! :)

LOL! Ok, first can't believe Ben is old enough to already getting little hand slaps! Poor Ben. Next, I can just see Max flying down the driveway as you yell at him to get in the car! And then, my poor Sammy. I think is expressing his need to come and see me!

Ben is a little busy body, but around my house he spends more time trying to escape from the older kids than following them around! I don't know if I have ever seen Max fall down while rolling around and he is just taking after his mother in putting holes in the knees of his pants, you did that to every pair you had in grade school. And I think Sammy needed to come back to Mimi's house because his parents just don't understand him!

Okay, I am glad I am not the only one who hand slaps at such an early age :) I also feel you on Sam's face...can't Mimi just make him sleep :)

Oh to have a house full of boys... I can't imagine!! And when I try to imagine it makes my head spin, I'm sure there is never a dull moment around there!! Love the pics :0)

Can you believe Ben is so BIG? I understand the "no nap face". Missing one makes for a really long evening, huh?

Your family is so cute. I can't imagine all those boys in one house. I have one boy and he's more than a handfull. Glad to see you're doing well.
