He didn't cry just wanted to get off his lap. I love the disgusted look on his face.
This is pretty much the face he makes whenever we try to get him to eat!
Last but not least... We have been practicing "sounds"
Don't mind the food... it makes him even cuter! :)
Whew!!! We made it. I will not be back until after the New Year... so everyone have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!!!!! It is now time to spend time with my family. My little sister came a week and a half earlier than planned from AZ and surprised my parents so we need to spend time together and let the boys play. See y'all in 2009!!!!!

Other not so exciting news. JT may have a fracture in his upper leg. I would go into details, but it is past midnight and I am actually tired for once. We are going to the Dr. tomorrow to follow up after his xrays and I will post what they found. Please pray that everything will be ok! And just a picture so this post isn't so boring :)

Jon and I are crazy, but we decided that it was time to get JT used to the potty chair. So we picked one up at Walmart. Nothing fancy... no music when you pee or toilet paper hanging on the side. Just a normal chair that will be able to be used on the toilet and it turns into a cute step stool. Anyway, we brought it home and let JT sit on it to try it out. He wouldn't get off. He probably sat on it for a good 15 minutes. We tried feet in water and running the bath water, but nothing happened. So the next day after his nap I stuck him on it again. Again he wouldn't get off so i decided to sit at my computer and wait. About 5 minutes later he came to see me. We walked back into the bathroom to get a diaper and lo and behold he had peed in the potty!!!! I clapped and cheered and got all excited. Everytime he saw the potty the rest of the day he would clap. I need to get some candy to put in the bathroom for when he goes. :) Jon and I went to Mesquite over the weekend for our anniversary so we didn't get the chance to do anything, but tonight I put him on and started the bathtub. Within 2 minutes he had peed and was ready to get in the tub. I know most would say it is way early and he won't keep doing this and I know I am definitely not ready to put him in big boy pants, but hey... I am a proud mom right now :) And you can never get started too early right?

My cuddle bug!
We bought this motorcycle for JT because he wanted to play with one of Jon's model bikes and he also loves Jon's bullet bike. Unfortunately it makes noise! Enough said. LOL :)

Here is our little lion. My grandma made this costume for my Aunt Lisa when she was a kid. I think almost every grandchild has worn it. Everything gets so much more fun when your kids get older. I can't wait for Christmas!
FINALLY!!! A smile.

It is also time to start "real" discipline. If he doesn't get in his high chair for dinner we stick him on the couch and tell him he can sit there or get in his chair. The first time it took 8 times and than he finally got off the couch and got in his chair. The next time we had to put him in "time out" it only took 3 times. He has been really good about getting in since then. Tonight I was getting some laundry together and heard him playing in Niko's food and water. Instead of putting him on the couch I decided to try a different approach. He laughed the whole time so I am not sure it will work, but it is cute! :)

We had my grandpa's birthday party today at a park in Washington. Here is my dad, JT, and my grandpa. He is such a wonderful man. My dad is adopted along with his 3 sisters and 1 brother. Adoption holds a special place in our hearts. After the party we took JT to Staheli Farms. We had so much fun. I thought for a second that he may be too young to understand, but you can tell by the pictures that he had a blast and I am so glad that we took a few hours to enjoy it as a family. JT had more fun rocking on the horse and playing on the little John Deere tractor. He threw fits when we took him off of both. We definitely have some great ideas for Christmas! By the way... when has it ever been in the 80's the last week of October!!! I am loving it.

Where did time go? It seems like yesterday we were bringing JT home from the hospital. He is such a happy kid most of the time unless he is teething. Which right now he is getting 2 molars that I can tell and an eye tooth. (NOT FUN!!!!!) His personality is so outgoing and he loves using his lungs. Our lives are crazy! Since the economy has slowed down so much, they had to lay off the girl I worked with in the front which means I am now doing everything. So we made the hard decision to have someone watch JT. My cousin Crystal is watching him 3 days a week and my mom will watch him on Fridays. My grandma wants to watch him too, but my boss also wants me to still bring him sometimes so she can see him. I miss him so much during the day, but have noticed that it flies by and I get so much done. We have been so blessed!!!! We are heading up North this weekend to spend with Jon family so I will try to get pictures. It will be fun to get away.

The rules: No cleaning!!!!! That is it, I want to see how you really live! Here we go!
Nothing really special. :) 4. Kitchen sink
I got the cute shelf for my birthday. Love it! :) 5. Fridge/Freezer
This is also one of my favorite rooms in our house.
He thinks he is big like us. Climbs up on the chair and tries to rock. Look how stinkin cute he looks. What a stud. :)
8. Your favorite room
This is where we are ALL THE TIME. JT now has a few favorite toys and they just happen to be the biggest. So they are pretty much out all the time along with Baby Einstein.
9. Our bedroom
I love this room too. Notice our night stands. lol Someday I will get to Ikea and buy my bedroom set. Still a lot to get done in our room.
10. Dream Vacation
My dream is anything tropical. I also have wanted to go to Hawaii, but not really anymore. I want to go where no one is.
This is Jon's dream vacation. Going back to Denmark where he served his mission. He always talks about it. I wish we just had a million dollars and we could go. Oh well... maybe someday.
