My three

 He is cute.Thinks he doesn't need a nap anymore. Still asks to be rocked to sleep every night. Has no interest in the potty. Loves his bike. Loves to be outside. Stops crying to tell me that he's crying.. "I cryin' mommy."  ((Yes sweet boy...I didn't even notice your wailing and thrashing around on the floor. Thanks for telling me buddy. ))Talks in sentences and is hilarious! Loves books and the Kindle Fire. I really don't have a baby any more and that makes me terribly sad.
 She is beautiful. Spunky. Sings all the time. Bit Will two times in the last 2 days (yes, you read that right...dear Lord help me with this child). Has been playing babies a lot lately. Goes all the way under the water in the pool. Has the wildest imagination and makes the biggest messes. Rubbed a glue stick all over a piece of furniture so she could hang up her art work. Blamed it on Christian. He was having! Is awesome at praying! Something I told her she needs to do a lot more of if she thinks she's going to continue biting people.
I love having him home. He's been delightful and talkative. Is the best big brother to Will. Is actually getting along with McKenna (she would never try biting him). Turned 8. Won his championship game for his league. Has suddenly found a love of reading. Does not like singing. Used his birthday money to buy a tennis racket because it will help him with his reflexes (his idea...not mine). Went to the orthodontist this week and could barely eat for 2 days. Never complained once but turned down a Chick-fil-a sandwich (clearly that is a sign of some major pain). That little gap in between his two front teeth will be gone soon. I'm going to miss it.

The O's

 I've always been an Orioles fan. But now that Christian LOVES baseball our whole family is becoming Orioles fans. Even Will knows who the Orioles are!
 Christian's friend from baseball has some awesome season ticket seats at Camden Yards. Ryan and Christian got the honor of going with them and they got to sit right next to the dug out.
 It was a great experience for Christian.
 Hanging out with the Oriole Bird.
 Christian's number one favorite player is Prince Fielder. He's not an Oriole, but he won the home run derby last year and Christian has been a fan ever since. This picture is special because 2 of Christian's favorite players are in it. The best thing about this game was that Prince Fielder hit a home run, but the Orioles still won!
 Christian pitching.

Hopefully that won't be Christian's last Oriole game this summer. We've got to make some time to do it again!

The many faces of Christian on the pitching mound....

Half Way to 40!

We celebrated Ryan's 35th Birthday....  Ummm...over a month ago. But I just had to share this picture with you! Oh how I love these people!
