More Often

So I need to blog more often. I guess that will be my New Year's resolution. Here is a "practice" picture of Dillon and Santa. This is a Santa we ran into at Walgreens. He is the youngest Santa I think I have ever seen. "Real" Santa is this Friday!! Woohoo!!

Dillon is into saying I love this or I don't love that for his likes and dislikes. So today we are driving down the road and he says I love firetrucks. I love trains, cars, trucks, trailers, bridges, candy, pumpkins, and on and on and on. Eventually because we were in the car he was just saying anything we passed along the street. clouds... signs... birds... too funny!

I walked into Dillon's room this evening and heard him doing a beat box of sort. Jeff does it so he was imitating Jeff. So I walked back into the living room laughing. Dillon followed me so I said:
What were you just doing?
Dillon: Walking

Cracked us up! I meant What were you doing hoping he would repeat the beat box noise. Nope! Smart kid said exactly what he was doing... walking.

Dillon knows how to spell Red!
We sing a song that goes:
R-E-D, R-E-D
That spells red
That spells red
Firetrucks and ketchup
Firetrucks and ketchup
They are red
They are red

To the tune of 'Are you sleeping'.
Now he sings it at the top of his lungs and this song is in my head constantly!! :)

The Baby!

I found out five weeks ago that I was pregnant. The due date they gave me I would be 18 weeks right now. I had a doctor’s appointment this week and the ultrasound said that I am only 10 weeks along. 10 WEEKS! So I thought that I have been out of the testy first trimester stage and we told Cory and Dillon all about the baby. They actually both want a sister.
Dillon was laying on the couch Monday with his head in my lap and my stomach started to gurgle.
Dillon: What was that!?!
Me: The baby is talking to you!
Dillon: The baby is talking to me?
Me: What she saying?
Dillon: You hear that? The baby is talking to me!
Me: What is he saying? (I switch between he and she for some reason)
Dillon: You hear that? The baby farted!!
This kid cracks me up. Lately his favorite word is farted/fart any derivate of it.
On a side note Dillon is finally taking to potty training! The only time he has gone in his pull up is during nap time and then during bed. I put him in underwear when we got home tonight and he didn’t have any accidents. He’s in the bath now and we’ll put him in a diaper for bed but it’s a start.
Cory had a cross country meet yesterday. He came in 33rd but he had fun. He has also joined the Science club at school and next week he’ll be starting the Junior National Honor Society. He’s having fun with school!
Jeff leaves for the desert in about two weeks. Pray for a safe journey home and for him to not be to overwhelmed over there. He will still be finishing his economics class when he gets over there so he’ll be busy studying at first.

Slowly but surely....

I am posting photos on http://www.photobucket.com/ my user name is SMByrd_Photo. Either put the name into the search or click here for the link. http://s256.photobucket.com/albums/hh172/smbyrd_photo/

So far I've only got the first 3 months of 2008 in there but I want to name them all. All of my homework is hendering the process! Do I do homework or mess with photos.

Dad, Rachelle, Robby, Lucas, when I get a good chunk of all of our photos scanned I'll be adding those to that site as well. I think I am just going to name everything by year. No "special event" names unless I feel like it is deemed worthy enough to stick out. :-)

So please look at the photos. Let me know what you think. Also is anyone even reading this? Don't be afraid to leave a comment or two... geeze!
I know you will comment when you are ready.

Love you all!

Quarterback Vs. Razorback

Jeff and I were talking about Quarterbacks this morning over diaper changing.

Dillon looks at us and says, "It's not Quarterback it's Razorback".

Jeff and I look at each other like where did he learn that word? Normally when we talk football it is either NFL, Notre Dame or Arkansas... we never really say Razorbacks.

So I looked at Dillon and asked him, "Where did you hear that word from"?
He said, "Ms. Tamela", his daycare teacher. Great! They are corrupting him. :)
On another note:
Dillon is at the age where he says funny stuff so...
Cory and him were cleaning his room the other day and Dillon says to Cory...
"Let's concentrate on this area over here".

What? Wait! He said concentrate... he is learning so much!!
I got Cory's cross country running schedule last night. Expect to see some pictures of Cory running on here pretty soon.

Cory is a giant!!

So Dillon and I were talking the other day about little kids. I was saying that he was becoming a big boy and needed to use the potty more. I then said you are a big boy like Cory. He said, No Mommy Cory is a giant!! The things they think of....
