if they knew sweet little you, they'd end up loving you too.

my little boy is 3. one of his favorite sayings is "i can hardly believe it!" and i'm going to steal it. i can hardly believe that he has grown into such a little boy. he is a toddler so every day is a learning experience, for the both of us. he's ahem, slowly learning to listen and sit still when he needs to. on some rare occasions he actually sits still and we are amazed. then we realize we've been thinking about it for too long and he is running out the door.

today chris installed those little lock things at the top of the door. you know, because andrew has learned how to unlock the door, open it, and open the screen door to go outside. one day i said something about going to the store and the next thing i knew, he was outside next to the car yelling for me.

he is super smart, and i say that just like every parent says that about their child. he amazes me with how much he remembers, some of the good stuff, like Bible songs and his alphabet and then the bad stuff, you know the kind he overhears that he shouldn't that i wouldn't put in print.

we celebrated his birthday with a mickey mouse birthday party. i sprained my ankle so i was limited with how much i could do, but my superheroes came to my rescue and helped out, and he really enjoyed his party. we did all that fun stuff - pinata, candy, even mickey mouse shaped rice krispie treats. (remind me never to do that again!)

happy birthday andrew. you are a sweetheart, and you make me better by being your mommy.

how can i hurt when i'm with you.

4 tooths, originally uploaded by sassyladybug.

easter sunday this poor baby was in the midst of suffering from 4 teeth coming through. all at once, all next to each other. i tried to put him in the church nursery and he bawled the entire time i was gone.

we overestimated his size and bought his easter outfit too big. this little guy - who will be 10 months on saturday - is quite a cute little peanut. so he ended up wearing a pair of tweedy dress pants that come with suspenders. he looked like someone from the cast of Oliver.

the suffering has ended - for now - and he's back to his happy self. no more of that sad, sad face.

it's never quite as it seems.

sleep, originally uploaded by sassyladybug.

andrew naps in our bed every day, so that I can get both boys to nap at the same time. we tried putting them down for naps together once, and it was a cosmic fail. this way i can get things done while they both are sleeping.

sometimes he gets into our closets and then i glance in and find him asleep with his daddy's hat on.

i can't seem to keep up with blogging. life is just too busy. right now, my foot is slowly making its way back to normal sized. i fell in my driveway on sunday and sprained my ankle. anytime would be bad but this is really bad timing for me. andrew will be 3 on monday and we are planning a party for saturday.

what is most important? what will i remember later on? i try to think of that when i want to take a nap instead of pushing myself to complete tasks. and i'm thinking of that alot right now while i'm stuck on the couch, resting my ankle.
