This Week in Ormsonville

We've had an exciting week here in Houston. Okay, I guess that's not exactly true, but we had a lot of fun at least!
Even though Teik is the baby brother, his bully side came out this week as he wrestled Sevy down. He felt bad after awhile and tried to console her tears.
Sevy thought it would be fun to have a slumber party with Teik and was a good mommy by covering him with her blanket and then trying to snuggle with him. He didn't know what was going on and just stared at us for help!
While we were getting ready to head out on Saturday, I stuck him in the highchair and he was loving that. He cracks me up by randomly laughing at his own secret inside joke. He was officially 3 months old so maybe that's what he was so excited about.
Never will a 2 year old seem so big until you stick them side by side with a 3 month old. Teik is a big kid, and looks like a little mini-me next to Sevy. She just LOVES him though!









Candice-these are for you. Apparently to Jon, I've started looking like Nanny McPhee. I didn't know if I should take that as a compliment . . . It's probably a good thing Jon's going to be a dentist!








And now poor Teik's teeth are coming in a little Matorish-like. He even is getting the "shifty" eyes. I don't know if this should concern me or not . . .








We found free tickets to the Children's Museum of Houston for Saturday. Sevy and I were going to make it a girl's day out since Jon had to get his car looked at, but the Midas people were going to take longer than expected, so it turned to a family outing! We were thankful to have Teik's carrier in the car (one of these days we'll get a decent one), and monkey backpack, because we had no strollers with us. It turned out way fun for free. Sevy loved climbing in all the cars they had. It really wasn't too little kid friendly, but we lasted just over an hour and were out of their anyway. We take advantage of the free days at the museums around town because the temperment of a 2 year old is iffy! The zoo is definetely worth the membership, and with free parking, I don't feel bad about taking the kids their for only an hour before it gets too hot, and I get too cranky! It's fun being here with so many opportunities to check out with the kids.

I always get so excited when you post. You should change your job from Mommy/rock-kickin' spin teacher to baby wrangler. I think that you take the best baby pictures. I cannot believe that you got such a perfect picture of Teik with the teeth (Eyes even averted the same way as the car). I love the one with Sevy of the shiny gorgeous hair hugging the Teikster. I almost think that it is mocking Sarah of the thin and sometimes matted hair. But then I realize that we cannot all be Sevy.

I love ya, Trin. Glad to see that you are back again.

I love all the pics. Your kids are so cute. I love the teeth pictures, very funny. And getting a shot with Teik looking just like that car, that was pretty amazing!! Glad to see you guys are doing good and having fun!

I see the McPhee, only after the kids make good choices so she is beautiful in the sudden snow flurry. Maybe Jon should have just said you look like Emma Thompson?

Hey, Super Trin, I tagged you. This is actually my first time tagging someone, and it is not my favorite one that I have ever seen, but you are welcome to take the gauntlet if you would like.

Regardless, I love you so much.

It really is funny how much Teik and Ethan look alike. And even more fun how close in age they are. Is your little man rolling over yet? I practice with Ethan and then wonder if it is something I really want to teach him. :)

Oh I love my ergo! I have used it everyday and I am still completely inlove with it. The best part about it, besides it being super comfy for baby is that I can hardly feel her there. It doesn't hurt my back and it's awesome for doing house work. I only have a single stroller and I'm keeping it that way becasue I just use the carrier. It'll hold them until they are 40 pounds backpack style or on your hip! Payton even rides in it now. Plus Mark doesn't mind wearing it. It's totally and completely worth the money. Best purchase I have ever made!!! Triathalon???? We'll see!
