Yesterday Allan and I were sitting on the screened in porch when Jimmy came out to visit with something in his mouth. Allan reached in and pulled out a piece of dog food. As soon as Allan said "he is eating dog food!!!!!," Jimmy responded without a pause with "Ruff, Ruff!" LOL!!!

We are home now from our wonderful vacation. Jimmy had to take a break from swimming one day because of bad diaper rash and a crick in his neck. We were able to go to the aquarium and take lots of walks that day. By the next day he was ready to rock and roll back in the water. We had so much fun riding the water slides again and white water rafting. Sam and Jenny were pros at the water slides by then and going down all the big ones. We tried to go down to the beach, but the wave were so big that you could not even get close to the water.

On Friday we traveled down to Nassau for a week of fun in the sun. My Grandparents have a time share down here and were not going to use it this year, so we jumped on the opportunity to take a family vacation. My cousin Jenny and her son Sam met us down here, Sam will be five next month. The boys get along great, Sam has been a great help pushing Jimmy in his stroller.

A good friend of ours parents own a furniture store here in Panama City, they called us today and said they were having a fantastic sale today and tomorrow. So why not? We went on over and took a look around. We ended up buying two new couch sets for in our living room! We were able to get both almost at the cost of just one. We are going to get Kevin to make us a new coffee table and end tables. We will also be able to space them out better when our old furniture is out of the way. The lighter of the two couches is also a sleeper couch, so we can house even more guest at our Branch Bed & Breakfast! :)

Chase came over tonight to hang out while Hubbell and Kevin celebrated six years of marriage! The boys play so well together. Chase does not like to eat big people food yet, Jimmy would try to talk him in to it by saying "good, yumm." Chase was not entertained by Jimmy trying to trick him into eating his veggies. They also collected all the green blocks and both went and sat down on the fireplace and passed them back and forth for awhile. Jimmy also taught Chase how to say "cheese" for a picture. Before bedtime I gave both the boys their milk cups, Allan and I were watching them when Jimmy went over stole Chase's cup and took off running full speed. He was laughing and running, like "nana boo boo, you can't catch me Chase!" What a stinker!!! Both boys passed out fast from playing so hard. Hubbell and Kevin are coming to get Chase in a little bit, he is such a joy to have over to play. Happy Anniversary Hubbell and Kevin!
Jimmy could not get any cheesier!

Jimmy helped daddy clean out the garage today and got super dirty! I had just cleaned all the bathrooms and did not want his dirty grass covered feet in my clean tubs. So I put him in the washtub in the laundry room. Little did I know that Jimmy would love it! He would have stayed in it all day long if I would have let him.

For the last couple of nights I have thought I have heard Jimmy in the middle of the night, but when I look on the monitor he is sound asleep. So I figured it was all in my head. Last night I went in to check on him like I do every night before I go to bed. As I went to leave I heard him say "more". I walked over to his crib and sure enough he was sound asleep and was saying "more, more!" LOL Allan talks in his sleep all the time, guess Jimmy inherited that from him! I am sure he was dreaming about more grapes or more strawberries his favorites.

This morning after breakfast I was preparing a casserole for a lady who just had a baby, when Jimmy came in wanting to give me kiss after kiss. Usually I have to ask him for a kiss, so I found this heartwarming. After about ten kisses he looked at me smiled and said "Pets please." Of course, I should have known he was up to something, all he wanted was to watch "Wonder Pets," and knew if he gave kisses I would not say no. Good grief sucking up at 21 months!

I had to steal a bunch of pictures from Hubbell's blog tonight. She always has her camera around! Let's just say Jimmy and Chase are both hams for the camera!
Hubbell is a Vandy fan, so I allowed her family to come over to watch the Auburn game. Big mistake! :)
Shirts or Skins?
Playing in the dirt
I'm a little stinker face!
Two old men, sitting on a bench!
Going on an airplane ride!

Ok, so no I did not get that backwards. Last night I watched "Desperate Housewives," one of the main character's teenage son would not talk to her anymore. I was laying in bed last night thinking about it and my pregnancy hormones kicked into overdrive, I started crying thinking about Jimmy growing up too fast. It seems like yesterday that he was born, he is now almost two and so independent. Allan woke up and asked me what was wrong, needless to say I was crying so hard and I just started laughing and tried to explain. He got a good laugh and went back to sleep.
