Wait time at the doctor’s office

We’ve been to the doctor a lot in the past 3 years.  Prenatal visits, well baby visits, sick visits, you know how it goes.  Waiting usually isn’t a big deal, UNLESS you have a hungry, sick, sleepy, fed up baby or 2 year old.  (So basically waiting stinks unless we’re kidless.  ha!)

When we lived in Central Texas, we went to Scott & White clinics and hospitals.  Most S&W clinics have a sign that says “If you’ve waited 15 minutes past your appointment time, please let someone at the front desk know.” (or something like that)  Most of the [...]

Only 4 months in…

First up, Mommy here.  My dear husband wrote this blog a few days ago.  He told me what he was doing and spent a lot of time preparing his thoughts and clicking away on the laptop.  I told him….that this wasn’t the place for this.  Our blog had a different purpose than this.  Now, a few days later, I stand corrected.  God is a huge part of our lives.  He has blessed us immensely and our purpose in LIFE is to talk about Him and things concerning Him and share the good news.  Shame on me for saying what I [...]

Easter Part 2

What a special treat we had this Easter weekend!  We got to see most of our immediate family and it was so much fun!!  Captain Fussybuckets got to have two Easter egg hunts!  Of course, this means he is constantly wanting to delve in to the candy, but that’s okay…every kid has to learn moderation someday.  He thinks we’re SO mean by not letting him just eat to his heart’s content.  Hmm…maybe we should let him and see how awful he would feel after all of that?  Nah, it’d probably backfire on us!  ha!

Here are some pictures from [...]

Who made the breakfast rules, anyway?

Captain Fussybuckets is usually a good eater. He’s picky, at times, but definitely knows what he wants and what he doesn’t want.  When I ask him what he wants to eat for breakfast in the morning, it’s usually the standard waffles, cereal, oatmeal, etc.  But sometimes he randomly says chips, pizza, a hot dog, or a sandwich.  And I don’t argue with him.  If we have it and it’s not candy or cake, I let him have it.  Some may frown on that, but who made the breakfast rules anyway?  And even if he DID want cake, how is that different than say….this:

Happy Four Months!

Our precious Baby D is 4 months old today (okay, technically not until 10:25 PM!)  Happy birthday, sweet baby!!!!

And to celebrate, he took an hour and forty minute nap!  YIPEEEE!!!!  Of course it was probably because he was exhausted from spending the day yesterday with family and attending his auntie & uncle’s baby shower!

Stamp of Approval

Daddy here,

  I figured it was time for me to put my stamp on this snoop bloggy blog.  I can’t help but be reminded of Winnie the Pooh’s “Blustery Day” as I look out the window this late April morn.  The wind is so blusterous that the trees are bending sideways and the sky is brown (good ole west Texas).  Thus our routine of daily bike w/ baby trailer rides, and family walks, has been interrupted. So, here I am.  On to serious things. 

Being a father…I never knew how important this job is.  It is the most [...]

I want!

My son is 2.  He has been very blessed to get a LOT of stuff.  People like to give him stuff.  This is fine, I’m glad that he can enjoy some toys, candy, whatever….but, my son has a serious case of thinking that whatever he wants, he can get. 

Here are some things he’s asked for in the past few weeks:

a bike dragon slippers (more specifially….. 拖鞋tuō xié  from “Ni Hao, Kai-Lan”)  a pink [...]

Our Boys!

Introducing……our two boys, the joys of our lives! I know, most of you already KNOW our boys, but well, I’m going to post pictures of them anyway!!  And some of you may be wondering why I don’t put their names often, or at all.  Well, here’s your answer.  When Captain Fussybuckets (the redhaired 2 year old) was a baby, we had a blog for family and friends to [...]
