A little confused...

This is probably way too much information, but it's just too funny not to share.

Cal walked in on me yesterday while I was shaving my legs in the tub. He hesitated, and then asked what I was doing. The conversation went a little like this....

Me: I'm shaving my legs.

Cal: (a very concerned look on his face) Why?

Me: Well, my legs are hairy.

Cal: (even more concern... maybe a little freaked out) You're turning into a dad???

David's party

My sweeties...
My stinker.... (I remember when my other stinker wore this shirt)

We had a little birthday celebration for David last Saturday. Check out his cake.... a friend of mine made it... isn't it amazing? When I mentioned that David was obsessed with the remote, I wasn't exaggerating. He really is. I was trying to figure out a "theme" for his party so I thought about what he really likes and then it hit me... the Dish Network remote!

After a big dinner, we sat David back down to do cake.... I think he was trying to tell us that he was done with the high chair....

and then everyone started to sing....

Hey! This ain't so bad afterall!

It's party time!

A little bit of this and a little bit of that....

I thought I'd take advantage of some quiet time to catch you up on what's been going on in our world (other than birthdays).

Here are some fun and not-so-fun happenings in the casa of Los Livingstons....
  • Daniel had a pretty bad 4-wheeler accident right after the twin's birthday. If anyone knows how to safely ride a 4-wheeler (much less any 2-wheeler) it's Daniel... this was just one of those freak accidents. He cracked some ribs and is still healing (and hurting).
  • Someone hacked my email account and sent emails about meds like Viagra to the first 100 of my contacts.
  • Cal is finishing up t-ball.... at his game today he chased a kid all the way home to tag him out (without the ball).
  • Cal started eating Ramen noodles and peanuts. Small steps.
  • Patti got in BIG trouble for the first time in a long time (along with brother Cal). They were terrible in the doctor's office during David's one-year appointment. She couldn't have candy for two days (just one of her punishments)... this was just heartbreaking for my little sweet-toothed girl.
  • David hasn't napped for more than 30 minutes (a day) in the last week. Pray this is just temporary.
  • Someone stole my purse and ipod out my car last week. It was parked in my own driveway (I was the goof who left the purse, but Daniel left it unlocked.... we had our hands full of food and kids when we got home). I feel so violated. I had everything in my wallet.... credit cards, gift cards, insurance cards, etc. It's such a pain to have to get all that replaced.
  • Daniel had a birthday last week too... he's 33.
  • We spent 10 days down in S. Padre.... so fun!
I think that's it. Hopefully we will have a fun and non-eventful couple weeks. I could use some "boring" in my life right now.

Happy First Birthday David Ray!

My baby turns 1 today. I can't believe it!

Here are some facts about our little man....

  • He loves to make a mess.... he is constantly walking around the house looking to see what he can shake, climb, or chew on.
  • He "talks" all the time... he just started to say "mama".... which melts my toenails.
  • His favorite toy is the remote control. I think he has a "remote control" radar that tells him when a remote has been left within reach. As soon as you call his name, he starts to run (while tucking the remotes in his arms). It's cute... but, if you're trying to watch something and he changes the channel or raises the volume super loud, it's not so cute.

  • He loves his mommy, but lights up when he sees his daddy.... maybe it's because he doesn't see him as much and he's the fun one that throws him in the air and tickles him until he just can't stand it anymore.
  • He started walking the week before he turned 10 months... now he runs.
  • He adores his brother and sister... always greets them with a smile and a big wet kiss.
  • He's not a huge fan of naps. Some days he might sleep 30 minutes and some days he might sleep 2 hours. He might take 1 nap or 2.... hopefully he'll figure this out soon. It's driving mommy a little nuts.

  • His eyes can't decide what color they want to be... I think they might stay Hazel.
  • He's had several "trims".... because his hair just keeps growing!
  • When he gets really sleepy, he cuddles in to your shoulder and tucks his arms under him.... it's so sweet.
  • He has a crazy temper....he is starting to throw himself on the floor crying. It usually only last for just a few seconds... and he's so cute and small that it's almost funny.

We just love him so much. He's precious.

Happy Birthday sweet baby boy. We love you!
