Sweet Little Bean

Just wanted to record some of the latest about Colbie Jeaner prettiest beaner ever seener, Colbie jeaner OR Queen Bean Jean ever ever pumpkin seen OR Colbie Jean Butter Bean.  Or to the end of any of these names add: oh put her, oh in a, oh pumpkin, oh shell, oh there you, can keep her, oh very, oh well. :)  INSANE.  I know.

We have had quite at time with her ears.  Ever since Christmas when we all got sick...she had her first ear infection (pretty sure that was her first.).  Since then she has had 5 or 6.  So we are scheduled to see an ENT for tubes.  Poor little bean.  I hope this helps her! 

She has been all over the place and into everything!  She is like our cute little puppy...makes a LOT of noise (more like an attacking pterodactyl than a bark...looking forward to getting that under control!), gets in to the trash all the time, chews on our shoes (niiiice), gets into drawers and pulls all the contents out...whew she is a mess! :)  She loves her Daddy and "De-De" (Daisy) and "I's (Isaac).  Still does not say a consistent Mama.  But calls me and Dan "Dah-Dah."  She tells Daniel, "Dat!Dat!DAT!" when she wants to be tossed up in the air.  

 She HEARTS watermelon.  But her bottom does not (gives us some serious caustic diapers!)
Sweet girl climbs on everything!!!  
We had cute little shorts to match this shirt...
but we must have had watermelon for breakfast that day...
 Snot central.  This was when it was even coming out of her EYES people.  Sad...and messy.
I do think we may have our hands full with her though.  I peeked in on her today at the Y when I was about to pick her up.  She was sitting by a little boy who was laying down in front of her.  She decided to just poke him in the face and then slap him a few good times.  OH boy.  Thankfully that little boy was not having it...and gave it back to her a little bit.  AND...if Isaac is laying down around the house she walks up to him and pulls his hair.  Hard.  And he is screaming and she is clapping.  After like the third time in a couple days I had to slap that little hand of hers.  Wow.  So soon!

She is a sweet little bean though.  :)  She loves her Mama and has developed a little "drama cry" already.  :)  She LOVES to be read to.  And she does not mind telling you no by shaking her head if she doesn't like the book you chose.  HA!

The other day we were playing outside and I was on the drive way.  She was in the garage sitting on a big wheel kinda bike.  She wasn't moving at all, just pushing buttons.  A few mins later I see something out of the corner of my eye...she is barreling down the driveway toward me, feet held up and no expression on her face like, "Yeah, I do this all the time."  Crazy girl!

She is down to one nap a day...sort of.  If I don't get her in bed by 11 am for that nap...we could miss our chance and only get a 45 min nap.  And that is bad news.

She is cutting her first molars now.  And a lateral incisor. 

She still loves her thumb to suck.  :)

That's all for now!  We love our little Colbie Jean.

After a long discussion including Jesus' death, burial and resurrection, Daniel and the lions and the Trinity with my 3 year old...I make a comment to the effect of "well, God and Jesus are the same person...but that's hard to get. I can tell you more when you are older." And Isaac said, "Ooooh. I get it. Jesus is God's middle name." HA!

Rachels version of their April visit! :)

Sunday we got to drive over to Ocala to see my friend Melanie and her family. She comes up once a year to go to games and hang out with me, but I hadn't been to see her in about 3years. Alex was 9-10 months old last time we visited her. We had so much fun catching up! I loved seeing her house and neighborhood and watching our kids play together. Alex told me the other day, "Isaac lives in Disney Mama." I had a hard time explaining that he didn't! Alex also keeps asking when we are going back to Disney and to see Isaac. I told him his daddy said it would be a few years!:)

Alex and Isaac had to watch Cars.

Thanks Dan and Mel for a fun visit and yummy dinner!

Isaac, Daisy and Avery outside enjoying some yogurt.

Daisy and Avery about to come in. Mel had just gotten some hand me downs and had an 18 month bathing suit for Avery to wear. It was so small but that girl was grunting to get her little arms in it.

Avery pushed this stroller around the whole time!

They had such a fun time running through the hose that Daniel was spraying!

Naphtali and EG visit us!

Naphtali came to Ocala!  She was here for 5 days.  She was so helpful to me!  I had several appointments to go to and she kept the kids.  We worked out, made granola, and so on...good times. :)  Ella Grace was a trooper.  That is her above...squishing her thighs.  SO CUTE. :)
 Debbie, Naph and I had a girls night out one night.  So great!

Colbie Jean and Naph....much like Me and Naph.  Sweet Jeaner, disheveled, food on her face, cotton target dress, feet apart....EG hair fixed, bracelet on complementing a smocked dress...sitting sipping her drink with her little feet together all proper.  HA!

 Hugs all around
 Isaac pushing EG at the park.

 In the pic below we tried to get a pic of the kids...but it was a bright day.  Check out Colbie Jeaner...has there ever been a more GRANDMA face on a toddler?  And Ella Grace is looking at her like..."Colbie Jeeeean...don't make thaaaat face!"

Girls night out pics

Rachel and family came to see us!

 Well, here we are.  We met in 2002 (I think) and 9 years later...we are livin' the dream. :) HA.  Rachel lives in tuscaloosa with here family.  I go see here every fall cause I HEART HER AND ALABAMA FOOTBALL.  :)  But this time her family was vacationing in Orlando, so she got to see my house!  Yay!  It was so fun to let the kids play and get to be with her.

 Avery lovin' the hose. :)  (We didn't have our baby pool of the summer yet.)
 Run Alex!

Thanks for coming to see us Rachel!  We loved it!  (And I plan on posting your pics from your post to this blog as soon as you get to it....hint, hint...ha!)

meems came!

 As mentioned in the previous post, Meems came to town, making it possible for me to go on Daisy's fieldtrip.  YAY FOR MEEMS!   We really enjoyed our time with her (as always).  I was terrible about taking pics for some reason.  Here are a few I got of her visit.

Isaac had a nick name of "Bug" for long time (still sort of does).  And he LOVES bugs and the like.  He is always catching lizards, bugs, caterpillars, you name it.  Poor little bugs...usually get the life squished outta them.  But if I see them in time we give the "put them back in their home" speech to be pro-BUG life. :)  He ain't scared and is all boy in this category. :)

 poor jeaner!  not quite big enough....
cool glasses they got from Meems.
