Play-Doh ...Uh-Oh

Since Josiah has been a royal pain in the *@! the past two days my mom suggested I get some Play-doh for him. It seemed like a great idea. So while I was making our meals for the week he was playing with it at the table (only at the table) while sister played quitely in her excersaucer in the kitchen with me. I finished up and thought I would vacuum while they were being good. I checked on them mid-house and there was Lillian having a good ole time eating the blue goo. I wasn't there to witness it, but it's safe to assume that Jojo chucked it from the table onto her table. I swear I can't trust that little booger even for a minute. On a side note I had to actually unscrew and take apart our dvd player this morning because he was messing with it and got a dvd lost in it. I probably would've left it if it hadn't been the library's. I don't know if I'll ever get upset with this face. This is a tractor I helped with. He was making tractors, of course, and motorcycles, one of his new obsessions.

New Cousin!

I'm a little late getting this posted, but we have a new arrival to our family. Jensen Richard Reilly was born on Febuary 11th around 4:30 pm. He was 7lbs 9 oz and 21in long. He looks like Anna which is alot of fun because my brother has a mutant gene that makes Jennifer's and my kids look like him at birth. He was born with a heart defect and we pray for his healing. If you want to take a look his blog it is in my right ledger. I can't wait until he is older and Josiah will have a boy cousin close to home to play with. Sophia is rubbing off on him quite a bit as he wants to cook a lot and does have concerns for the baby dolls around the house. Congratulations Jeff, Anna and Sophia!


We've had a fun and busy week. On Monday we went to Elias's house to play. Wednseday we went to storytime at the Library and to play at the gymnastics place. Thursday they went to Aunt Christine's to play while mommy went to the movies. Friday Aunt Sheila watched them at our house. Then we had family night at Sam's club. We had two pretzels with nacho cheese, a nice cherry coke, and lots of samples. Finally on Saturday Daddy took them down to the bike shop with him.
Jojo was being too quite so I went and checked on him in Sister's room. He was laying under a pile of clothes I had stacked under the table. I guess that's his idea of quite time. He's pretty rough looking. His face is terribly chapped (happened last year also), his hair is almost at it's limits (2 more months to go for first haircut), and he has a miscellaneous scratch on his face (as always). He wanted in on the action himself... literally. Lillian ate carrots for the first time last night. I think she did better with those than with the rice cereal. So far she hasn't been much of a fan of eating. I'm waiting for the cute chubby cheeks to start turning orange now.
This is the most I've ever seen her extend her neck. I always just thought she didn't have one.

Helmet head

Lillian decided to start rolling from her belly to back now. She's being going the opposite for about a month now. She isn't very graceful though. She just kind of thumps head on the ground.
Jojo loves sharing his helmet with Lillian. Believe it or not she didn't even make a peep during all of this. She tolerates her big brother very well.
We had a wonderful Valentine's day. Grant and Dustin, took Jess and I out for a great evening. We had dinner at Bazbeaux's, then went to Circus Solieus (?), and finally desert at the South Bend Chocolate Factory. It was fabulous. I've been online today looking for trapeze classes. It's been added to my to do list. I figured it falls under my "ways to fly" category. If anyone ever get the chance to see the show I would HIGHLY recommend it. Have a wonderful week.

Let's eat

Lillian ate her cereal for the first time this week. She did pretty well for her first time. I'm not sure if it's the cereal or chance, but she's slept very well the past two nights. She's wearing her cute bib that her Aunt Christine got her for Christmas.
First time in her jumper. She didn't jump at all, but she did love being it.
Josiah wanted to get in with her.
That face means trouble.

Let it snow!

We went sledding over at Mom's on Sunday. Jeff, Anna, and Sophia joined us. The top of the snow was kind of crunchy so it was really loud to walk on and sled down. He wasn't quite sure what to think of it at first. Sophia didn't want to go down, but when I said Jojo, her, and her baby could all go she agreed. She doesn't look so sure. Later we made a bed for "baby" in the snow and threw baby so she would sink in the snow. Sophie thought that was funny.
It's impossible to get both of them to look at the camera.
Daddy took this picture of Lillian in the laundry basket.
She had her Dr. appt on Monday. She now weighs 14lbs 11oz and is 25 1/2 in long. Dr. says she looks good. We got the ok to start rice cereal, but Grant and I haven't been home at the same meal time to give it a try.
