Oh Sweet 5th Child Of Mine...

Isn't he sweet???



Don't let those innocent looks fool ya, my friends. Today Harper did a few things...a few very bad things...as two is approaching swiftly. Here is a short list, in no particular order of my favorites:

  • drew on the walls of the house we're staying in with silver sharpie. Precious.
  • broke 2 of my new Crate&Barrel glasses (ones I love so much I could make out with them)
  • unrolled 2 entire rolls of toilet paper all over the stairs. Apparently throwing rolls down the stairs is raw-some. It is not.
  • When the check out girl at Target broke his heart and his spirit by "taking" his new toy dinosaur from him to scan it briefly, and then promptly return it to him, he kindly "gave" it back to her by chucking it at her head with violence. This made me so proud.
  • refused to have a nap while simultaneously hanging in mid sleep/mid scream in the car for 20 minutes. This also made me proud.
But then, we got back to safety and turned the new Little Mermaid sprinkler on for him (yes, he picked it out) and he became a sweet thing again. He even came in and kissed me all over my arms and cheeks whilst blabbering about the "wah-rerr! wah-rerr!" and the "bye-errr! bye-errr!" (water, spider) because apparently he almost died when a butterfly flew past him in his frolicking, since it was trying to kill him. Either way, I logged onto my flickr to start working, and what popped up?





Yep that's it. He and daddy, a year and a half ago being all cute and sleepy together...so then I forgave him. Aren't babies the bomb?

Oh and Jonah has a new blog. Go see him HERE

regarding action #1 - Ethan did the same thing with nail polish!!! Yay!

regarding action #3 - daily occurrence here. fun times.

regarding action #4 - wow Ethan did that EXACT same thing today only with a bottle of orange juice. sweet.

regarding action #5 - again Harper and Ethan must be communicating their plots to destroy us and our sanities, because da-yang. Twins.

and yes then we got home and Ethan came and sat next to me and we soberly gazed at each other and chewed our gum and then he suddenly got a twinkle in his eye and he smiled and reached over and patted my cheek.......awwwwwww...........melted heart all over the couch.

P.S. Mr Clean Magic Eraser removes Sharpie. We have had experience, seeing as I have 3 bad naughties.

Kristen said...

OH THE JOYS!!! I have always said, that the reason they are so cute when the are asleep is so that we can be reminded of why we love them so much...especially after such "PROUD" days!

Today we're going to the park to let the boy(s) let out their energy. Thank goodness we're home and not at Eliza's house anymore, or I'm afraid with Miles and Harper and Isaac, we'd have so much trouble a'brewin. He is totally out of sorts these last 2 days!!! Grrrr.

So I came to pick Tiffany up right after he went in the sprinklers on Friday. He was tellin me all about it. He's such a cutie!

I love to hear that I am not alone in the sharpie/chalk/food covered walls. I love that picture of Mike and Harper - melting hearts....away!

I am lucky that I haven't had to deal with graffiti...yet.
I love other people's screaming children at Target. I always have to flash them the smile that says, "I know what you are going through." Oli just pulled that the other day too. She has a very mature set of lungs and a great arm. Unfortunate for me.
I love that last shot. I love those boys lips!!!
