Zeke's Love of School

Zeke told me the other day that he really enjoys school. When I asked him what his favorite part was (thinking he would tell me math or science) he responded with this...
Me: Zeke, what is your favorite part of school?
Zeke: Recess
Me: What is your second favorite part?
Zeke: Gym
Me: Third?
Zeke: Music
Me: ...fourth? (still searching for a core subject)
Zeke: Lunch (oh boy)

Like Grandmother, Like Grandson

G.G. followed up with our last blog post to share her new look with Zeke....ha!

This Just Makes Me Laugh

Posted by Picasa

...and his hair actually stayed up like that even once the blower was turned off. Zeke thought it was the funniest thing ever.

Introducing....Mr. & Ms. Captain Underpants!!

Zeke & K decided to play superheros the other day. It was orginally Zeke's idea and Kaelyn was determined to copy him. He is her hero after all! She sure loves her big brother!

Potty Training Success

Hooray for Kaelyn! After just a couple of weeks of REALLY focusing on the task at hand Kaelyn has re-potty trained herself. We decided to buckle down right after spring break and declare NO MORE DIAPERS! K resisted at first but after quite a bit of "correcting" from me and consistency...she did it! Yeah!

K was particularly proud of this moment so we decided to capture it on film. I'm sure she will appreciate the picture when she is a teenager.

I just realized how many half-naked shots of my children I have in the last several posts. I promised they do wear clothes....occasionally. :)

Kaelyn's Visit to the ER

Two weeks ago our family was having dinner over at the Hanna's one evening. While the kids were playing outside with Uncle Bryan, somehow Jack & Kaelyn collided...K ended up throwing her face into a parked car. She split her head open, busted her mouth and managed to really scratch her knee. Of all the injuries, she was most concerned about her knee scrape above all else.

Mom & I drove Kaelyn across Houston to an ER on the Northwest side of town. We chose that location because it was referred to us by another ER doctor and it sounded like a great spot because they weren't busy that night. I must say, it was the fastest ER visit I have ever been a part of. I think we were in and out in about 40 minutes. The doctor very carefully glued K's head closed with Derma-glue and then covered the cut with steri-strips, warning us to make sure she kept it dry and left it alone.

We got back home that night at about midnight. The next morning when I put Kaelyn in the bath tub (to finish cleaning her knee scrape which still had gravel in it...ouch), I warned Kaelyn that she had to be VERY careful to keep her head dry. I went in the next room to get her clean clothes and when I walked back into the bathroom, Kaelyn had removed the steri-strips, reopened the wound and blood was trickling down her forehead again....AHHHHH!!!!

Luckily Aunt Lisa had more steri-strips on hand at home so she closed the wound again. We coached Kaelyn to LEAVE her head ALONE and she managed to not touch her head for the next week and a half....long enough to let the cut heal. Whew!

Kaelyn Faces

This child cracks me up! She has reached a stage where she really enjoys showing off for the camera. She is cute and she knows it...ha!
