Another difference is how they fall asleep. When Josiah is ready for a nap he gets super cranky, we put him down in his crib, he cries for a few minutes, then falls asleep. Not Noah. He will be playing as hard as every, then all of a sudden he lies down and is asleep. It is the funniest thing to watch! I did get some pictures of him asleep after falling asleep eating.

“A box? For me?”
“What is it?”
“Yeah! A dinosaur! How awesome!”
“I will call him Mr. Dino Jr.”
The Mr. Dino Jr. came with a music DVD that the peanut loved! He even dances to it. I will have to get a video of that sometime soon!

1. Teeth Problems (he is getting his molars in)
2. Stomach Problems (Donnie and I both have been having stomach issues)
3. Growing Pains (Katie came up with this one for us)
4. Mental Issues (how old does a kid have to be before they can have anti-depressants?)
And, in my option, the most likely
5. Demon Possession
Donnie called our pastor to discuss this possibility. (we love our pastor Chris) For some reason, Chris thought this was the funniest thing ever, and told us there would be no casting out of demons. We were very disappointed in this development.
My mother told us to go rent the movie Rosemary’s Baby. We will have to check into that.
(Update: Please note that the crankiness, as of now, has subsided. Praise the Lord!)

At this point Donnie and I are about to go crazy! It was so bad we called my mom at 4:30am asking her what to do. She suggested we call the doctor. We called the doctor, and she told us that the peanut was over tired, and to give him a bath.
I thought a bath was the stupidest idea ever, but we were desperate so we tried it. And you know what? He loved it! He was all laughing and splashing. We were shocked. After his bath he fell asleep watching Loony Tones with us. This was abound 5:30am. He slept till 9am. Thank the Lord!

By Sunday the fever broke, and he was acting much like himself. Monday is was still acting better, but was being super cranky. Here is the proof.
Then this morning he woke up covered in little red dots. I knew it was time to go back to the doctor. (because the good Lord knows we are not there nearly often enough) And know what? He is sick! Mommy was right!!! He has roseola. He will be fine. My mother has recommended us just making standing appointments with the doctor twice a week. I think this would work for us.

Recently the peanut has learned how to give high fives. I do think this is the cutest thing ever, so I wanted to get a video of it. However, the peanut did not want to corporate. Whenever the video camera comes out the peanut starts hamming it up!
I do think the video that we did take is funny, even if there is no high five. On the plus side, so can see the peanut doing (what his grandpa Baughn calls) his war cry! Enjoy!

We celebrated my birthday on Wednesday by going out to dinner. My dear friend Katie surprised me by meeting us at dinner! With flowers! I have the best friends!
I some point I will have to take some pictures of my gifts and post them!

But then we took him in front of the mirror, and he was so excited! I think he liked how he looked!
My mom and I had made some pumpkin cookies that we took to my neighbors. I called it reverse trick or treating. I think the neighbors were happy to receive cookies. And everyone thought the peanut looked super cute as tigger!

ps- Happy Birthday to me! :-)

It all started with what we thought was a pimple below his lip. We did not think anything of this, because the peanut’s skin around his mouth is always broke out. However, that night he did not sleep very well at all. Then the next day the peanut was not into eating. This is very uncommon. So I made an appointment with his doctor not having any idea what could be wrong. By the time we got to the doctor he had a few what looked like pimples, and I had a good idea it was the pox. And it was!
Below is a video that I made to document the pox for my mom and dad. It is 15 min long, so if you have some time to waste feel free to watch!

Halloween time only means one thing. Chestnuts. Everywhere. The squirrels are very happy about the situation. And I have to say, I think they are getting pretty bold, letting me take pictures of them eating!
I’m not sure what I’m more worried about. Getting whacked in the head with chestnut spikes or getting attacked by a squirrel. People are right about Detroit being a dangerous place to live!

Here the peanut is eating his birthday cupcake. He did it much more neatly than I thought he would have!Sadly I do not have very many pictures of this glorious event. I was so busy running around the whole time, that I forgot to take pictures. Luckily, other people took many pictures!

The peanut had his first birthday but was sick with a cold. The cold lasted FOREVER...a good 2 weeks!
Then he came down with the chicken pox. Let me tell you....he was one unhappy peanut. This lasted about two weeks.
Then Frankie scratched up the peanut really bad. The peanut had a cut under his eye that got infected, and he had to be put on two different antibiotics. Because of this we did give our pug away. This was really hard, but I think it had to be done.
Currently the peanut is cold, and chicken pox free! And his eye is looking much better! Things have to get better from here, right? :-)

I am happy to report that on Saturday we had our family pictures taken! I'm not sure if I posted about this, but we asked a lady at our church to take them, and not pay our wedding photographer the $750 she was wanting.
So on Saturday we went to Van Hoosen Farm in Rochester and had them taken. The peanut was very patient with all the pictures. And he was very happy about eating all the rocks and wood chips he could get his hands on.
I can't wait to see them! On Sunday Nicole said she would have them online in a couple of days, and seeing that we don't have Internet I have been making my mom check her website many, many times a day.
I will post a link to them when the pictures are up!

We did sing some songs together, and played with a parachute. The bad part of this was that at any given time half of the kids were screaming, and the other half were wondering around. It was chaos! And to top it all off, the class is $68 a MONTH! I think I was expecting something really great because it was so expensive. (We got our first class for free) Sadly I don't think we will be returning.
Has anyone else tried Gymboree classes? Did I just go on a bad day?

At first he was not too sure about it,
Then he thought about it,
Tried it again,
And he was hooked.
On the way back we stopped at a park, and the peanut tried the baby swing again. And once again he was not to thrilled about it. However, Courtney was able to make it bearable.

One of the peanuts favorite things was banging on the glass with the polar bears. He thought this was great! They were feeding the polar bears while we were there, so that was super fun to watch. We also rode the train while we were there, and that leads us to the peanuts second favorite part. Eating the fence in line for the train. I’m not sure why, but he loved this fence! I think he was sad to get on the train because of leaving the fence. To him the train was not nearly as fun as the fence!

Well, lets just say her prices have gone up and by a lot. As most of you know when we moved into our house we had Dionne come and take photos, and then she gave us the photos on a CD so we could print them. She only charged us $100 for this. I wanted the same thing for our family photos. Want to guess the price? $750! Yeah, that is not really in the budget.
So what do you think? Should we still do them or not?

My tomatoes are doing great! I even have baby tomatoes. My mom says I’m going to have a boat full of them when they are done, so if anyone wants some tomatoes let me know!
Next are my green peppers. They are not doing so hot. However, I was chatting with some other Detroit gardeners and they said the same thing was happening to their green peppers. They told me that this summer has not been hot enough for them to grow. So much for global warming. J
Next are the cucumbers. Currently they are blooming, and I hope to see some cucumbers soon!
