It's a long one, but a good one....

Since we're playing catch-up, I thought I'd include a few pictures from the last couple weeks of random things that have been going on around here.
I know I posted it on FB, but the boys all got haircuts courtesy of mom....
Easily done with the distraction of a sucker.
The finished product.
My handsome boys!

 Jett is changing soo much!  It seems like everyday he knows something new.  He can show you where his nose is and giggles when he accidentally pokes his finger in that mysterious hole, though he doesn't do it for his own amusement yet.  He's also learning to find his eyes.

He's trying to talk more and more.  Aside from the "mama/mom" and "dada/dad" that he's been saying for a few months, he now yells for his siblings.  It's the cutest thing to hear from across the room, ......."ay-LAY" for Hailey and "ay-DEN" for Haiden.  Yes, the capitalized means thats the part he yells.  Haha.  He hasn't tried to say Ethan's name yet.  Probably because he's always with us.

He's also attempting to walk.  He's been cruising for a while now but he's just recently started letting go of the furniture and getting his grip on standing without holding on.  It's a rocky road but he's getting there.  The little stinker is a pro at climbing the stairs though.  He's mastered that craft and now works at being quiet and sneaky if we forget to put the gate up.  It's pretty funny when he's caught though....

Who?  Me?
Headed up...

This is what he does when he's been caught....pretend to be just hangin' out.

Proof on camera that he's a sneaky little terd.  He's so darn cute!

He loves to push around his Elmo push toy.  It converts from a walker to a pusher and I think he likes it more now.  I'm fearful of his driving in the future though since he just crashes into the walls and then drops to the floor and quickly crawls away.  Preparing to flee from the scene.....

Big man getting ready to walk.

He likes to look out the back window and talk to the dogs....except he can barely see over the window sill.
He likes to feed himself these days and I don't mind too much.  There's nothing that won't come out in the wash or the tub.
Checking to see if he got it all.

Mastering the fork.

Good to the last bite.
 His new thing lately is to watch/help me cook.  Since we've started our new budget this year, I've been making alot more homemade goodies.  Jett loves to get right in there and help....

Making breadsticks to go with our lasagna.

Compliments to the chef.
Ok, that's a lot to take in.  I hope you enjoyed catching up with our latest happenings......On to tomorrow.
