Growing Babies 42 and 18 Months!!!

How on God's green earth do I have a 3 1/2 year old and a 1 1/2 year old?  
  • Annie June is still her precious self.
  • Although, here recently she has shown her sassy side. Eighteen months was tough with dude too!  It's a pivotal point when they realize that acting out gets a reaction out of you and they won't think twice about pitching a fit.  I call it the testing phase and it's rough.
  • I give you exhibit A.  AJ throwing all of her food on the floor and pitching a fit because she didn't like what I cooked for supper.
  • She catches on to things pretty quick, so I hope this stage doesn't last very long!
  • We still take selfies and send them to daddy.  He loves getting pics of his girls:)
  • She LOVES bubbles.  It's borderline an obsession.
  • Books are an obsession though.  
  • She takes a 2 hour nap during the day (sometimes a 30 minute cat nap in the morning) and around 11 hours at night.
  • Still won't watch any TV except baby einsteins on my iPhone.  
  • She's also not much into toys.  She wants to be right up under you or in your arms.
  • She's so happy that Aunt Casey lives close by now!
  • She's my traveler.  She always wants to go "bye bye" and wants me to put on her "hues" (shoes)
  • Testing testing 1.2.3.
  • I clearly told her that no she couldn't have any "huice".  Evidently she didn't hear me or didn't give a damn.
  • She weighs around 22 lbs and wears 18-24 month clothes and will be moving up to a size 4 shoe very soon!
  • She loves animals and making animal noises.  I knew the zoo was gonna be a big hit and it was!
  • I could eat them both when they are this sweet!  I hope they love each other forever.
  • She tells me when she poops.  Her vocabulary has grown tremendously this month!
  • She's starting to put together 2 word sentences "more milk" and "bye papaw" and I just might die when she asks for "miiiilllllkkk pease"
  • Here's thug life thinking she needed a face tat with a permanent sharpie marker.
  • And crying of course.  Did I mention she was going through a rough stage?  Dem I spy brother in the background watching Frozen for the thousandth time?
  • Bless.
  • She loves the new playhouse that I scored at a garage sale for $35 bucks!
  • She also loves the park that is within walking distance of our new house!!!
  • Gosh they are some cute kids.
  • If I do say so myself:)
  • Noonie, we love you more than you will ever know!

  • Dude is too cool for school and pretty much a grown man. Sad, but true.  Nothing is baby about him anymore, well except for when he throws fits.  Does it ever end?
  • He. plays. hard.
  • We have a bicycler on our hands!!!  
  • He begs to ride it every second of every day.  
  • Two minutes, two hours, or two days, it doesn't matter- the past is "last year" to dude.  For example- "Last year I went to swimming lessons and slide down da slide."  Umm that was yesterday, my dear precious.  
  • I don't correct it because it's so cute.  He also sings "This little mite of mine, I gonna let it shine"  and I don't dare correct it either.
  • Papaw babysat for an hour and this is what I came home to.
  • War paint (NON-WASHABLE might I add), pajama top, boots, and riding his bicycle with no hands.  Really Jimbo?
  • Our move was made easy thanks to this guy!
  • Hagan the redneck destroying boxes one at a time.  
  • He loves the Ag Museum!  Thanks Mammy for the year round tickets:)
  • Here's Rudy at dude's age.
  • He marked both our children!  
  • Co Co came in for a 2 day visit!!!

  • Wouldn't be right without a buddy pic too!
  • Annie calls him "bubby" and likes to give him sugar.  This may be a problem in 15 years.
  • But watch out buddy because her daddy knows how to do an arm bar.  Just ask Uncle Jay!
  • He still says "Dem I."  The other day we walked into swim school and he said "Dem I smell swimming lessons?"  It gave us a good laugh.  
  • This little thug snuck a pen out of my purse and gave himself a hand tat.  And then had the nerve to give me this expression when I confronted him about it.
  • Friggin Hooligans.
  • He's rough and tough, but also very tender-hearted and emotional.  It's the Jimbo in him!  Here he is at a restaurant pretending to sleep while Mammy sings to him.  He still asks her to "bayou baby" him sometimes.  
  • Any kind of ride is a big hit with dude!
  • He still loves the outdoors.
  • He's my favorite little boy.
  • We love you sweet man!
