Adios June!

Another month has gone by and we're up to our normal shenanigans around here. Brendan has been keeping me busy but I'm still loving every minute of it despite some not so fun times. Like today, when he pooped on the floor in the living room. Luckily it was in the corner but it was probably the most disgusting thing I've ever had to clean. So gross. Now I know not to trust your son without a diaper- even for 30 seconds. He also took a wiz on the tv stand. I've learned my lesson.

We spend a lot of time outdoors which means I have to keep a close eye on Brendan or else he'll eat the wood chips. His favorite is if he can find a puddle to dip them into and then slurp the water off of it. Again, very gross but I guess boys will be boys, right?
We also had to say bye for now to Angela and Jandon. They've relocated to Spokane, WA and both Brendan and I are going through withdrawals. Target will not be the same without you, Angela!

Overall, we're just enjoying the summer and watching Brendan grow. It amazes me how big he is getting and I can't believe that on July 3rd he will be 18 months! I don't know when the transition from baby to little boy happened, but it's hit me hard the last couple of days. But I honestly am loving this stage despite the tantrums and poop problems. Life couldn't be better.

And I should probably mention that Chris is really enjoying his job so far. I know I don't write about him as much as I should... He likes the company he works for as well the people, so it seems to be a really good fit for him. He also took the polygraph for the FBI on Wednesday, so luckily that is out of the way now. That wasn't so fun for him but he's glad it's over and done with. He deserves a big pat on the back for going through that!


  1. I love all the pictures...especially the one with me! Seriously though that is a cute pic with me and Brendan. I can't wait to see you guys again and you have to start planning your trip out here. Trust me I went to Target today and it was no FUN.

  2. Andrew pooped down the air vent in his room TWICE this week when he was supposed to be taking a nap. I hate it when things like this happen!

  3. I the heck do babies become toddlers overnight? It makes me sad, but happy at the same time, because I love the stage she's at too!
