Staring COLLIN!!!!!!!!

Hi everyone.....It's me Collin! It's finally my turn to tell you all about me, uninterupted. Which we all know in this house is a novelty in it's self. So let's see, what to tell you about me. You probably already know that I'm 5 and that I get to start kindergarden in the fall, which I am SO excited about. But what can I tell you that you might not know? Hmmm, well I lost another tooth the other day making it a grand total of 4 teeth! You may notice my lack of teeth in the front. I'm kind of the crazy guy of the family. Although some of you may think of me as shy and quiet, really when I'm comfortable I'm very silly and LOVE to make people laugh. I'm also kind of a love bug. I love to just snuggle with and be with Mommy and Daddy!
As you ALL know I'm the oldest of 4 kids and while I love all my siblings, I can't seem to get enough of SHANE! I mean I just adore him. I love how he smiles at me when he see's me and how I can get him to giggle. I can't wait till he's older when we can really play. Here is a picture of us snuggling in our jammies. Aren't we cute!?! Mommy says Shane looks just like me when I was his age..he's just Chubbier!

I'll do ANYTHING for a laugh...including putting this goofy hat on and make funny faces.

I really enjoy being out side, and as you may remember from entries earlier in the year I play both Soccer and T-ball. Mommy signed me up for T-ball again. It should start next month. I can't wait. So be on the look out for pics when that starts up. Obviously there is not much to do outside during the winter, but here is a picture of me enjoying the snow. I do LOVE playing in the snow!

for indoor activities I enjoy coloring, and can even write my name all by myself..and 'yes' some times I stick my tongue out while I color. What can I say it helps me concentrate. Much to Mommy's dismay, Daddy got me a nerf gun. It's so much fun and I LOVE shooting my nerf darts at the door.

One of my favorite things to do is to play video games with Daddy. Especially Mario for the Wii

All about Aiden

Hey everyone, it's me Aiden Joseph. It's my turn to be the STAR of the blog. As most of you saw in the blog a few weeks ago I just turned two, Mommy says I'm really good at being two...I'll tell you all about me and you can decide for yourself if she's right!
So, for those of you that don't really know me that great, I'm kind of a serious guy. Although Mommy and Daddy seem to find me pretty funny. Let me assure you when I do things, I DO NOT do it to get attention, showboat or make people laugh. I do it because it's what I feel like doing and am in the moment. Like when I put this hat on, I wasn't trying to make Mommy laugh like Collin or Kylie might try and do..nope I saw it, had the urge to wear it and there you go. Why mommy was giggling is beyond me.

So along with kind of being the serious guy I'm also the one that, well lets just say I like to keep Mommy on her toes! I think it's lots of fun to get into things that I know may be a little naughty. Like climbing on the counters or standing on the arm of the couch so I can jump. Here are some pics of me caught in the action!



Hmmm I wonder what I can get myself into up here.

Mmmmmmm DORITO'S!!!!!

So besides for making mommy crazy, some of my favorite things to do is play with cars..or anything that makes music. Here I am with my cool guitar that santa brought me. Can you see me having my own garage band someday or what?

Oh, and I've also decided that I might have a future in MMA. How old do you have to be a UFC fighter? I LOVE to 'fight' with Daddy and yes, as crazy as it sounds I do LOVE to watch the UFC fights. I watch closly and bob and weave like the do as I throw punches at the air

After a busy day of just being me is dinner then bath time. Here's me in my doggy towel. Woof I LOVE to brush my teeth, and make them all sparkly! Mommy helps me at first, then I get to finnish up!

After bath and snuggling is bed time. Mommy snuggles in the bed with me while Collin goes potty and we just talk. Once Collin comes in a climbs up into his bed we say our know the typical "now I lay me down to sleep" followed by asking god to bless our family memebers. I know I told you about how I sleep in the bottom bunk and all, but last night (2/8) I was just to tired to wait for Mommy to put me to bed so I climbed off her lap, layed down on the living room floor and fell right to sleep.....

Shhhhh....good night!!!

Getting to know SHANE!!!!!!

So Mommy thought it would be a nice idea if we each take a turn having the blog to ourselves so we can talk all about what we've been doing, and all the things we love! So we decided that since he's the littlest that Shane should go first. Well obviously since he's just a baby he can't really 'tell' you about himself that I would do it for him.... Anyway, Shane will be 3 months old on Sunday, he went to the Dr's last week and we were all shocked when they did his lenght and weight. Now we all now that he's a bit of a chub, but...well you judge for yourself here are his stats....he weighed in at 16lbs and was 25 inches long. Mommy said I was about that size at 6 months old! Shane is really starting to coo and be interested in his surroundings. He loves when we talk to him and babbles right back at us. He's rolled over a few times and Mommy says it probably won't be long before he does it all the time! He's a very very happy sweet little guy and we all love him! Here is a picture of him playing peek-a-boo under a blanket..this was taken just last night (2/4/10)
In the morning when we first get up we are all snuggle bugs. Once Mommy is done feeding the baby either Kylie or I snuggle with Shane while Mommy goes and gathers the things for Shane's is a picture of Shane and I snuggling
After nursing, it's time for Shane to have a bath. Now, he use to HATE being naked and his bath. But now he LOVES his bath. He kicks and smiles all through it! After his bath Shane gets all lotioned up and dressed for the day...then it's play time!
Here are just some pictures that Mommy took of Shane last night (2/4), just playing around

Look, Mommy took out the exersaucer for Shane. He was so excited that he could sit in it and play with all those toys!
I showed Shane how his book can make noise and told him all about the pictures in the book while he had some tummy time!
Mommy says that tummy time is important for shane because it helps him get his muscles strong and that's also how he'll learn to roll over and crawl. He sure is getting strong. Look how well he can hold his head up and play! Hope you enjoyed getting to know all about our baby brother! Stay tuned for when Shane starts eating cereal, which Mommy says isn't to far off!
