Toothless McGee...

So I go to pick Blake up at school this morning, and he has a hole where his front tooth used to be! He lost his tooth! He is so pleased! (Side note: Yes, it is a bit early to be losing teeth, but this one has been hit so many times, it was literally a snaggle tooth! Not gonna miss it sticking straight out! LOL)

We went to Target for groceries, and he had to show EVERYONE! He carried the tooth around in a plastic baggie. Gross? Yes. Did he love it? Absolutely!

Cousins! All boys!

For my dad's birthday, we (my sister and I) got our kids together for a picture. This was the best one we got. The others included a crying Connor, a moving Henry, and a cheesy Blake. Phew, that was a work out!

Apparently we can only have boys in this family.

the Connor chronicles

Because the last little bit I have been focusing on Blake, I thought it may be nice to see Connor.

He is now 18 months old! I can't believe it! Sometimes I feel like I just had Blake, let alone Connor! Connor is a sweetie. He is way more cuddly and clingy than Blake ever was, but he also prefers Matt to me. Kinda funny.

He loves to laugh, and is super silly. (pardon the messy house! LOL)


Connor LOVES shoes! He takes my shoes out of the closet and just leaves them all over the house. Call me crazy, but nothing is cuter than a baby in nothing but a diaper and adult shoes.

By now, Blake was talking, but Connor says only about 5 words in connor-ese... I am guessing it is because Blake talks enough for the two of them combined!

He chases Blake up and down our hall, and no one can get him to laugh like Blake. I love having two boys!

The soccer mom...

It's official. I am now a van driving, soccer mom.

Blake's first soccer game was last night. I thought it was so funny! No referees, just the coaches out on the field basically telling the kids what to do. Bunch Ball at it's finest (and cutest!) Blake had such a huge cheering section (me, Matt, Connor, Aunt Paige, Henry, Gma Christy, Gpa Drew, Gma Annette, Gpa Gary, Uncle Mike, Aunt Alyssa, Uncle Scott), that he spent the entire time running after the ball while waving. So so cute. Can't wait for more!

4 of the 6 members of his team. Blake is #4. Yup, the one with the baggy shorts. Next year: Order an Xsmall, not a Small.

Hamming it up for the camera.

Oh, hi mommy.

Lesson # eleventy-seven... leaving a 4-year-old alone in the bathroom is a dangerous (though hilarious) idea OR if you give a 4-year-old a lip gloss.

Blake has been a little obsessed with things I am doing. Make-up, nail polish stuff like that. He still doesn't quite get that not everyone uses that stuff! The other day I told him that girls wore eye shadow and he said, "That's ok. Someday when I marry Lexi (his grandma's cousin's daughter--adopted, calm down) I will buy her lots of eyeshadow." I told him she would probably like that.

What a funny kid!
