Josiah like to be the first one in Lillian's room in the morning.  He wanted to give her something to play with for the 2 minutes it took for me to get there.

He put some ketchup on his eggs "all by myself" 

Lillian laughing at Jojo.  She thinks he's the funniest kid on the planet.

24 weeks preggo. 
I think the shadow is adding an extra inch or so.
(by the time I'm getting this posted I'm now 27 1/2 wks)

The Faces of Jojo

Grant and I took Josiah to see Toy Story 3 at the theater.  It was his first time going to the movie.  We couldn't get a serious face out of him before we went in.  That's ok.  I love these pictures.  He thought the movie was pretty cool on the "big screen" and he loved his candy.

Jesus and Jojo

Josiah has been asking the simple hard questions about God lately.  It's been so cute and makes me think about things differently also.  I'll record a couple of our conversations here.

He's looking at a box he made in sunday school that says, "Jesus loves Josiah"

Jo: Does Jesus love me?
me: He loves you so much. More than anyone in the whole world
Jo:  {thinking} So is Daddy Jesus?


We are sitting at the kitchen table.  Lillian is eating a banana.

Jo: Did God make the world?
me: Yes, He did
Jo: Does God make bananas
Me: Yes, He does
Jo: Why?
Me: He makes them grow so that we will have food to eat
Jo: Does God love me?
Me: Yes He loves you very much
Jo: Why do I love God?
Me: uhhh.... Because He loves you so much and He wants you to love Him just as much so that you can go to Heaven with Him someday.
Jo: I love God....Sissy, do you love God?
Me: Yes, Sissy loves God ( I look over and she's shaking her banana face "no")
Jo: Mommy, Sissy says she doesn't love God!

In Lillian's defense that girl loves to say dinner prayer.  She doesn't really touch her food until we do.  She sits there, folds here hands together,  then finishes up with the cutest "amen".  Sometimes during her meal she will have to stop just to say "amen."

Fun with Oliver

The Jones family came over not too long ago for an evening of swimming.  Oliver is such a good little guy.  He enjoyed the water and the kids.  

It didn't take too long before Oliver decided it wasn't worth the bottle.  

The kids keep getting braver!
Grant and Dustin had fun launching Josiah across the pool.  

Lillian enjoyed her air time also.

Funny note:  She got in before I put a swim diaper on her.  The regular diapers swell up really huge.  So I decided to take it off of her to release about the 4 pounds it weighed and since she had already pooped that day.  Well, she had the manners to get out before doing her business.  She went and stood by the door then told me she either a) had to poo or b) already pooed.  By the time I got up there we could see a nice little firm present sagging in her cute bathing suit.  So we had to clean her off in the yard.  Where's Sadie when we really need her?

Jojo the clown

I was over at the neighbor's garage, when I realized Jojo went back to our house.  I found him in my van smiling with the reddest, proudest, smile  He said, "Mommy, I have your lipstick!" Oh, really?  I think I can see that.  He told me that it broke, but I at least he put it back in the right place.  He could've done some real damage with it.  There was only a little on the steering wheel, console,  and ceiling.
