Little Green Monster

One morning I was in the shower to find a green little monster peeking in on me. I about lost it.
I couldn't even imagine what he could have gotten into. Then I found it. A little green ink pad. How does he find all of these kinds of things???
He was saying "wipe" and wiping the pad on his face.
It was on his legs and arms as well.
I tried taking pictures of him, but as you can tell, he was mad about it. He knew he was in trouble, and didn't want his picture taken.

"Baby Hit"

This is a picture of the damage a 2 year old big brother can do. And, in about 10 seconds. (This was a week later)I came home from the temple and a girls' night, to find Cole holding Kai, while Dax keeps saying"baby hit". I looked at Kai's face and panicked. When I see any injury to the head I worry, especially right before bedtime. I don't dare put him to bed like that. It was about 10:00, so we headed to the ER. After a couple of hours,and a cat scan, he turned out to be fine. It just looked horrible. I am so thankful! I couldn't handle any more injuries, or hospital stays with this little one.

Love Hate Relationship

Daxton and the washer and dryer have a love hate relationship. He LOVES putting anything and everything in the dryer, the picture with buzz, blanky, and who knows what else is whatI find daily. He loves trying to get in the dryer but can't quite do it himself, so I help him get in with a loving push, and he hates it. He loves to turn them on and off ( I can't say that I love that. He tends to pause or stop loads in the washer when I'm not paying attention. I think because they are front loading, it causes the hate. He hates watching his blanky, doggy, and buzz get a "bath"- we must call it that or it is a complete melt down, before we called it a bath he would sit in front of the washer and dryer and just bawl and cry out for them. He still isn't fond of the fact that they have to have a bath, but he can deal with it a little better.


Dax loves counting and his ABC's. Even though he can't really sing or say the ABC's, and just knows a couple of the letters, which is still great. I saw this idea on How Does She, I found it here. I have been trying to decorate the boys' room in robot, since it is little boy like, bright bold colors, and hopefully will last awhile and wont grow out of it. I can always switch the robot stuff with cars,airplanes, monsters, super hero's, whatever they are into in a couple of years. I made my abc's a little different. I just screwed them into the wall, because I am no measurer ( if that is a word-apparently not, it has a squiggly red line under it!) The screws added to the robot feel. I could paint the screws black, but I actually like them. I started hanging these up one night myself. I got the A and the B up, but Cole could here me yelling. I get putting tiny holes in the wall. Dax then picked up "Gosh Dang it!" or "Dang it!". The Cole came in to rescue me, and finish hanging them up. Thanks hun! The boys' room is coming along very slowly, but getting there. I am getting excited about how it is looking, and so is Dax. He can now look at the "E HE A's" now anytime he wants. (usually when he is going to bed, we can hear him singing "E HE A's, E HE A's"

"white and dirdy"

Dax loves to try hats and glasses on. He has broken 3 pairs of mine...yes...perscription ones. The ones I can wear now are crooked, because of this "dird". When Dax put these on Cole and I were cracking up. Cole kept saying he was white and nerdy from the Al song song. Dax cant always say his R's, and he was having a hard time saying nerd. He was saying white and dirdy, which sounds like dirty. This little bugger is lucky he is cute and funny sometimes, I think right now that is what's getting me through the days.
