Yea, these are the most recent I have right now. I have some more on my camera, but the batteries are charging. We took the boys down to the creek at the Morgans camphouse in Sturgis. They loved it. It was a beautiful day, the water was cool, clear, and runnin. And we were the only ones who would let their kids play in the creek. Everyone else fussed that their kids were not getting in the nasty water. They loved it!! Anyway, I will post some others from my camera this weekend. I have a cute one of Matt and Jesse working under the kitchen sink replacing the garbage disposal. Jesse was playing with Matts tools, copyin Matt. He had the right idea as of what to do with them, he was just trying to use the screwdriver on the cleaning bottles. Well, I will post more this weekend.

Anyway, Jesse has done some growing! I noticed this morning that when hes in his car seat, his pj pants stop just below his knees, like hes wearing capries. You have to fight to get his shorts up, and his pj pants no longer stay at his waist cause they wont go that far up! The boys in 18 month clothes right now, and Im thinking about getting him 24 month pjs and shorts. Hes only 16 months old! Hes huge! But its so funny to watch him runnin around here. He has started copyin Lisa when se does her workout in the mornings. You can catch him bent at the knees and bouncing, or rocking left and right. And Matt said earlier today he was runnin around on his tip toes. Hes so fun right now. Now, to get some pictures loaded!
He knew daddy was hiding his bag of blocks from him.
And you DONT lay on Jesses pillow, sit in his chair, or hug his bunny. They are his, not yours. And he will pull you off of any said items by the hair!!

We got there about 3 am saturday. My parents, me and Matt, and Jesse. The front porch where we would be sleeping was completley crowded with junk and mosquitoes. The dogs bowls were laying in the middle of the floor with food scattered everywhere and a good size pocket knife laying on the side of a box. The dog was laying on the couch inside, not unexpected. I tried to get Jesse back to sleep inside, but one side of the couch smells strongly of the dog and the other side is just sour. There is stuff piled everywhere and the floor is in bad need of being swept. My dad took Jesse to one of the back rooms where he finally got him asleep.
Now, when we woke up that morning, I saw what I didnt see at 3 am. The stuff piled everywhere is pots and dishes, some clean, some far from it. Caned food and mason jars lining the walls. Bags of rotten potatoes and other...stuff, and boxes of food on a shelf. Cans and bottles covering the counter. A pot of mystery stuff steadily growing mold on the stove. Mouse droppings on the hood over the stove, and of all places, the bed that my dad and Jesse had slept in. Now I really wanted to gag, after removing myself and my 14 month old son who wants to explore everything. I told my mom if it were not rude, and wouldnt embarass my dad, I would pack up and find a hotel. Unfortunatly they were atleast 30 minutes away. Now give me some credit. Jesse and I did sleep in that bed saturday night, but I shook out the sheets and laid some of my blankets down for us to lay on. I can see Leanne and Michelle just shaking their heads here and wondering what the hell I was thinking. Where do I go? I would seriously think that a man expecting company, and bringing a toddler, would pick up SOME!! I need to hush, lord knows who reads this.
Anyway, who can relax? All Jesse heard from us all weekend was "NO NO" to everything. When we got home and Jesse got up monday morning, I just let him pull out everything. I figured he had heard "no" enough for one weekend. Matt got up later and just paused in the doorway looking at the pile of blankets and toys in the living room floor. Jesse saw him and walked to him with a grin on his face. Matt couldnt help but laugh. Needles to say, if I think of going back to the coast, Jesse wont be going.

We have had years when it was hot and dry, and some were wet and muggy. This was the worst. Wet and cold. Add to that the construction work going on at the old church, the gravel drives, holes where stumps once were, now full of rain water, and the constant cold misting rain. It was miserable. We usually eat after church there on the tables under the oak trees. As soon as church let out, everyone scattered. There were not even the number of people there that usually are. During normal weather there are people left outside standing on the steps, (which are no more, there's a ramp). Everyone was huddled inside so the doors could be closed to keep out the breeze. And there was my experience of having an excited toddler in church. We start a song, he wants to sing along, straight through the prayer. But he doesn't sing, he hollers with a grin. We give him a toy, this pleases him for 5 seconds, then its thrown across the isle, landing with a thud in this old wooden church. Here's a cookie. Bad move, this REALLY excites him so he stands on Matt's lap with cookie in hand and crumbs all over grinning and screaming "uhhhhhhh"! We went outside and found papaw walking up. So they played in the car, discovered every knob and button in the car. Thank god he didn't find that one right in the middle of the steering wheel. Anyway, we all scattered. Some of us went up to Friendship church and ate. Others just gathered at ones house and ate. But we went home and called it a day. Jesse took a good nap while I took my good sweet time at Kroger. And Matt wonders why I take so long. But we just kicked back for the rest of the day and had McDonalds for supper and watched "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button." Matt apparently didn't know I had seen this in the theater, so he watched while I went to sleep. My kinda weekend. Wait till next weekend though. Memorial weekend in Houma Louisiana!! Camp house and boats waiting on us, just a few miles from where the shrimp boats dock. Cant wait!!

I got Jesse a set of wooden blocks today. I dont know why I didnt get them earlier! I messed with him and started putting them in the bag. He looked at me like "what are you doing? I was playing with those." He immediatly picked them up and started tossing them across the room, hitting my coffee table with them, and hitting them toghether. He really likes throwing stuff right now. But Matt and I both had gotten in the floor with him at different times to play with his blocks. Matt built a big pyrimad with them and it was all he could do to keep Jesse from knocking them down. He would look at them from afar, grin real big and come running at them. Matt held his hand up to stop him while he kept building it and Jesse was leaning into Matts hand stretching his arms out trying to knock over all his blocks! We were both laughing so hard, Matt just let him have them. He grabed the top block, thought about it, then bear huged the whole stack! He loves them. We will just see how long before they are really thrown across the room. Thats when they will be taken away. Well, I am gonna go relax now. Jesses been in bed and I've had a headache most the afternoon. Bye for now!

Saturday I had to work. That sucked. But it wasn't that bad. My mom took Jesse, and the morning flew by. Nice how it does that when you stay busy. But when I got off, I went to pick up Jesse, and I found him passed out cold on the couch with my dad, who also was out cold. Now that was a priceless sight! Yes I got a picture. Its on my phone and I will try and get it on here. Thankfully I was able to get him home and in his bed without waking him completely. He slept for two hours. Now that was a nice nap! When I went to check on him, he was up, had his mobile going, and had pulled off all of the plastic covers from the railing...again! I put those on there so he wouldn't chew up the railing. Well, he chewed up the sideboards of his crib, teeth marks everywhere. The plastic covers he just pulls off and tosses them around the room. It was cute though. I stepped in and could see him standing in his bed crouched down at his knees, watching me with his head down. I walked in and bent to the side to see him at his level, then stood up and looked down at him. That boy had his head facing straight ahead and looked up at me for a second, then grinned and threw his arms up for me to pick him up. Apparently he was ready to get out of bed!
We went to Wal Mart and bought some more fish, ours ate himself to death. Went to sonic for me a late lunch, then to Cellular South for a memory card for my new phone. That's where the tantrums started. Of course it rained half the weekend, so we couldn't go outside to play. I set him down while I spoke to the lady about cards, cause who wants to hold a wiggling 27 pound boy? He took off. The front of the store is all glass windows, and he really loves to go outside. He stands at the doors beating his hands on them, looking at me, hollering "ahhh, ahhhh". Every time I pick him up he bends all the way over so I have to set him down before he falls out of my arms. So he's down again to take of on an adventure of Cellular South. I grab him running behind the counter, he lays back over in my arms. Then when I grab his had to try and make him come with me, he does it again. But this time, before I can catch him, he falls back and hits that thick head of his. Imagine that. My son hit his head, again. I am surprised there's no brain damage. So here I am in Cellular South with my son who wants nothing but to go outside and play, or explore the store, and he's crying, loudly, in my arms cause he hit his head. We went home to put the fish away, then went to Kroger for groceries. Thankfully he calmed down. So I thought. At least he wasn't crying in Kroger. He was just yelling for da-tee, or just yelling period. He turns around in the buggy playing with the bag of frozen biscuits. He throws his cup in the floor, then goes back to yelling. Guess what? I got a toddler, and he's driving me nuts! But I still love him.
But Sunday was just so laid-back. I wanted to go to church so bad. Matt didn't want to get out in the rain, and it had been thundering alot that morning. Matt let me sleep in and brought Jesse in the room about 7:45 and laid him on top of me hollering "happy mommies day!" How can I not wanna get up to that! I got me a pretty rose bush from Jesse, and Matt. "Jesse" even found someone to come and plant it for me, cause you know if I plant it, I'm not gonna dig deep enough or replace the clay. Then it will die. But I got me a pretty reddish-pink rose bush, that according to Matt will bloom all year long.You gotta like that! We went and ate lunch with my parents and mamaw, then went home for the afternoon, kicked back and relaxed. I loved it! Now, if this week will only go that nice!! Ha, fat chance....

Wanna see some more pictures? Cause I took alot! That is one big man! And some of his coments, oh he was good. Lets see what did he say...about his song "I wanna marry for money"..."this is my economic stimulus plan!", "There were many complaints to capitol records about this song. I didnt know what to say. I'm sorry...I'm just really...I dont know what to say...I just dont give a shit!" and about the song "Girls just love country boys", some wanted to know what he got out of his experience on "The Apprentice", "well, girls really DO love country boys!". He just had and overall good show! And the fact that he looks good added to it! LOL!

And just check out this cake that I made, Im so proud of it!!
It was interesting making it. The top layer was yellow, middle was white, and the bottom was chocolate. Dont know if I will do fondant icing again though. It was more difficult than I realized. The other two were homemade buttercream icing that just makes a regular cake mix WONDERFUL. Took two days to fininsh it. But it was fun!

Matt thought he needed some help eating.Uncle Clay taught us how to act like a monkey (as if he didnt already know).This face means "I have had enough, I wanna play with it now."
He likes to play with his blanket, really just drag it aroud, wrap it around his neck, and throw it over his head. But then he does that with matts socks, his pj's, my shirt, anything he can find.But then, danget, once again, he busted it. First his forhead sunday morning before church, then his mouth at Anna baby shower, then his face on the side of the tub, ...(breath) now his chin on the coffee table. He steped on his blanket standing next to the table, then busted it. No blood this time! Annas baby shower was enough. Busted his lip on the lobby floor and bled everywhere, or atleast I thought so.

He had his first haircut! He did so good, didnt fus or grab for the sissors. Even when she pulled out the electric razor, he was fine with it. And at his check up, when the nurse stuck his finger to draw blood, he just looked at her. No crying or fussing. I was so proud of him!! And hes 27 pounds! BIG BOY!! He got his first birthday cake last night. That was priceless, and yes I had the camcorder on him. It didnt last 5 seconds, and he had his fists in it. Had two fist fulls of cake and icing. And just kept throwing his fist in the air like he just won a prize, then shoving it in his mouth. Then we went and had our pictures made today, they are gonna be so cute!! Thats about it for now. Check back in a week for birthday pictures!

Anyway, this boy is pulling up on EVERYTHING! My leg, the coffee table, entertainment center, chairs. Now hes startin to open cabinets in the kitchen. I got some baby-proofing to do! And puts everything in his mouth. Its sometimes a 2 second thing; finds something, pick it up, spit out the passy and stick it in the mouth. He deffintly knows what no means. He just dosent like to hear it. When I get mad and tell him no real loud, he sits back, starts turnin red, and fusses.
