Blogger’s Block Update

I actually have much to show and tell all, but my laptop is out of service.  I plug it in to charge and it doesn’t charge unless the conditions are perfect- it has to be on its side, me pushing with all my might that little cord into its backside, cord not too kinked on the ground and plug hanging out just a bit from the wall!  I don’t have time for this so on I go letting it loose its charge and then reminiscing of the day when I would unload my camera pics to my laptop and blog blog away! 

So, in the mean time, I’ll just blog the list of things I need to blog and hopefully soon we can get little blue Toshiba laptop friend back in business.  On the plus side, I’m on the internet less and actually spending quality time with my kids.  The house is cleaner too!  AND I’m sharing my hubby’s laptop. Not too bad, really!

Blog worthy events (the pics still on my camera):

Mothers/ Fathers Day, Shark Reef, Great Grandpa V comes to town, Coat closet pantry, Graduation, Square Foot Garden, Memorial Day in Utah, Sun oven cooking, Discount Dumpster’s Customer Appreciation Event, Josh starts walking, Josh turns 15 and 16 months old, Babysitting Adventures, 4th of July, Backyard haircuts, KMart toy clearance finds, Vons store closing and other great grocery trips!

So just use your imagination when it comes to the pictures to go along with the things we’ve been up to these past few months. And if you have a suggestion to get my lazy computer back up to working condition then please leave a comment and let me know!

It’s Been 5 Months Since I Had This Kid…

So no scrapbook yet! I haven’t even looked hard at purchasing one! Maybe I should just give in to the digital scrapbooking craze…

Well little Joshy survived 2 1/2 hours of visiting teaching today =o) I had to wake him up from his nap, leave without feeding him or a diaper change, and as you can imagine he had a rough time! Don’t worry, I changed him and fed him at our 2nd stop and he let it be known to all that he does NOT like a bottle!!! Luckily I could make myself at home and give this little guy the real stuff!! I have such awesome visiting teachees or whatever you’re supposed to call them, all 7 of them this month!!!

So here’s looking at you Mr. 5 month old:

-must be teething, because our once happy boy now cries cries cries and chews on his fist constantly. I think it’s the whole 2 steps forward one step back routine going on right now

– tried rice cereal on Saturday and ate the whole serving no problem at all. He knew just what to do and shocked us all

-wears size 2 diapers and is pooping about every other day rather than once a week

-kicks and splashes so hard in the tub that even Mikey is a bit afraid of him now and mommy and daddy are drenched each and every night

-screams, squeals, screeches, and does everything LOUD, really LOUD

-giggles when tickled

-loves kids to play with him and strangers to hold him

-babbles during prayers and pipes up when you talk about Heavenly Father

– twists and turns all over in his crib

– can pull his link toys off and put them in his mouth

-has experienced Orajel and wasn’t too much of a fan

-Picked up a pen from the floor and put it in his mouth

– Still rolls from back to side, but not to tummy quite yet

– Is getting very strong legs since he kicks and pushes on everything he can

-Loves his big brother Mikey and will calm down when Mikey’s close
