How in the World Can He Hold it?

Ode to the Toilet

There was a little boy who refused to go poo
how could his mom help him, what could she do?
She asked her friends from afar,
so many ideas she picked from a jar.
Mom gave up and just let it go
Before she bit off her big fat toe.
How can he hold it? All the day long
Like no big deal in a sad sad song.
He tries and tries to no avail,
not wanting to admit that maybe he did fail
but as the sun goes down and the diaper goes on
there is no problem that can be called upon.
Then one night out of the blue
He called to mom to look at his poo,
She got up and checked thinking the worst
and was so proud of her boy, his very first.

Planes, Trains and Automobiles

So, Christmas is over! YEA!! But BOO! Hannah had her little Christmas program, which of course she was so darn cute. We had a good Christmas, Hannah was so excited this year and was up at the crack of dawn of course. She really wanted a Barbie the Island princess doll and HighSchool Musical 2 DVD. For the last few months all Zach wanted was a green water hose just like Daddy's! haha Well we finally broke down and got him one for Christmas. Jon had to work that day, so we all got up and opened presents and then the kids and I spent the day doing little projects, and playing with everything they got from Santa. I SCORED this year and Jon got me an automatic remote starter for the car! YEA! I am loving it in this kind of weather. This year I really missed having family around on Christmas. My mother-in-law came out for four days and she came just in time for the kids to get sick. Jake got the brunt of the sickness and is still sick. We finally took him to the doctor and is now on some antiobiotics. Can I tell you how much I hate having sick kids? He hasn't slept in three days...literally! Poor guy, he is doing a better today, but still all goopy. Oh well! I have been having to go to the dentist a lot. DARN YOU DENTISTS!

This is for you Candace....his waweehose.

Okay, so I started this post last week and am just now going to finish it. Jake is now better! YEA! I have been the happiest person in the last two days. Wanna know why? Jake has slept through the night for the last two nights! OH MY GOSH! This is the first time that all three of my children have slept through the night. I woke up at 5 happy and refreshed! I haven't had that much sleep in 6 years! No exaggeration! WOOHOO!

Look at these cute kids! Jake is just crawling everywhere, crawling up stairs, pulling himself up, letting go and cruising around the couches. I don't like it one bit! He is you can tell, thinning out like crazy. We just had his 9 month appointment and he is 19lbs 6 oz! hahah At 4 months he was 18 lbs. I really thought that since he was so huge to begin with he would always be big, nope! He also has 6 teeth now! I can't believe he is 9 months! It makes me so sad to think he will be turning 1 in a few months. Anyways, I hope everyone had a great Christmas and a Happy New Year!
