Meeting Our New Cousin, Elizabeth

September 28th, 2010 No comments


This past Sunday, we got to go to Chicago and meet our new cousin, Elizabeth. Her name has quickly been shortened to Ellie. We both got to hold her a few times, but Jack would have held her the entire time if he had any say in it. As soon as his turn ended, he would stick out his arms and say “My turn.”

Bye Bye Binkys

August 24th, 2010 No comments

Last night, Jackson went to sleep with no binkys and didn’t even cry about it.  He tried to convince Mom that he wasn’t a big boy that he was a baby so he needed his binkys, but in the end he relented.  This went surprisingly well since he usually sleeps with six to ten of them each night.

Mom isn’t taking the loss of the binkys as well as Jack.

Rudy’s First Day of Kindergarten

August 23rd, 2010 No comments

Mom and Dad had a hard time watching Rudy go, but not as hard a time as Jack.


Rudy started full day kindergarten this past Wednesday, as you can see Jack didn’t take it very well.  Rudy had no issues with leaving his parents, he just got on the bus and waved goodbye.

The plan is that Rudy will get off the bus by Emily and Olivia’s house after school and then hang out for an hour or so til mom comes to get him.  This plan did not work out so well the first day- the bus stopped at the bus stop, where he gets on, twice and Rudy didn’t get off.  The bus also stopped at the bus stop, where he gets off, twice and Rudy didn’t get off.  In a slight panic, Mom called the school.  The school called the bus driver.  Apparently, Rudy was too busy talking to notice the bus emptying around him, so the bus driver went back to the bus stop by Emily and Olivia’s for a third time and dropped him off.  Rudy thought nothing of this ordeal.

Disney Vacation

May 27th, 2009 No comments

We just got back from a week in Orlando going to a few of the Disney World parks.  We had a great time even though it rained just about every day.  We also stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge which had giraffe’s, zebra’s and other animals right out our balcony.  After 4 days going to the Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and then Magic Kingdom again we visited my Great-Grandma in Apopka.  We did a lot of swimming and relaxing there.  See below for a slideshow from the week:

Brookfield Zoo

May 2nd, 2009 No comments

Well it has been a little while since my last post so lets play a little catch up.  Since we last spoke I turned one and had a great birthday party with tons of people and delicious cake.  I’ve also learned to walk and with the warmer weather I’ve realized I was missing out stuck in the house all winter.


This leads to this past weekend…We went to the Zoo on Saturday and I got to see some dinosaurs, pet some goats and see many other animals.  It was a blast!


Here is a slideshow my dad created of the day:

My 1st Easter

April 13th, 2009 No comments

Kind of strange how I am more than 1 year old but I’m just now having my 1st Easter.  Just thought that was weird.  Anywho…Easter was a lot of fun, I got a bunch of gifts and got to watch three Easter Egg Hunts in one day.

My Bro Turned One!

March 29th, 2009 No comments


Had my brother’s 1st birthday party today and I think I had more fun than he did. There was a balloon animal maker and a girl who paints faces. Strange story about her…Ask my Uncle Brad next time you see him if you don’t know the story already.

Anyway after everyone left I was so exhausted that I fell asleep picking my nose. My parents were nice enough to capture this proud moment in my life and post it here on this blog.
