Charlie is just over a year old now. He's so big. He has long ass legs and a big head. He is skinny, not sure why. He gets lots of exercise and eats like a horse, but he's still skinny. He's healthy, no worms, etc. so I don't know what the deal is.

Charlie is still very jumpy, but he's only like that with other people. He plays great with the kids and is so gentle with Daisy. He would seriously eat someone if they came into the house without us knowing, though. He HATES the Fed Ex/UPS guys. He has the meanest bark ever when they pull up.

He likes having his belly rubbed and under his chin. His favorite treats are the milkbone ones. Oh and he LOVES peanut butter. He's not picky with his food, BUT he will not eat unless he has a full bowl of water. SO weird.

Anyways, we love our Charlie and are so happy we drove all that way to get him. He is an awesome, loyal dog.

Row, row, row your boat....gently down the stream...

Joe took Taryn and Jacob fishing today. Taryn LOVES to go fishing with his papa.

Taryn told me that they were trying to catch catfish and croppie. He caught one small fish but had to throw it back. He also said that he had a "ginormous, huge catfish but it broke his line, it was SO big"....lol

He said he got a donut before they left and "really liked fishing with his papa again". They saw a bunch of GIANT clams that were shiny by the dock and one even had a dead fish in it's mouth, lol.

I love hearing his stories. He's so imaginative and detailed. He gets very excited and full of life when he tells stories.

Oh! He even drew a picture at school on Friday, of Papa and him fishing on the river. So sweet!

I'm very thankful that the boys have Papa to take them fishing.

Pretty Princess

Daisy Jayde (almost) 9 months old. February 16th, 2011.

Ahhhh 68 and sunny!

Great weather today! It was a little cloudy off and on, but mostly sunny and breezy! I think we hit 68-70 degrees. It was SO nice to be outside again with the kids and not freeze to death. We drew with chalk on the driveway and played baseball and ran around for awhile.

It was amazing. I hope Mother Nature isn't teasing me.

I gave birth to a monkey.

I'm serious.

Daisy fucking climbs on EVERYTHING. EVERYTHING. She is by far more active and into more crap than my boys ever were at this age!

She climbs the vacuum, the dvd shelves, the chairs, the soda boxes, the table, the couches, the shoes, the toys in her room, the treadmill. She is CRAZY!

I don't really baby proof. I just do my best to keep her away from stuff that poses a direct threat. I put plug ins in the outlets where she plays, I moved my heavy breakables off the shelves she can reach, etc. But I don't do corner protectors or gates or anything like that. I have one gate, just haven't put it up.

I let her roam around while I get on this thing or eat or whatever and have to get up every 2 seconds to get her off of something.

Ooooh this girl!
