How ironic that his new job is TOTALLY social media/internet/tech based! Bwahahahahhahaah! Can you hear me giggling through cyberspace! For the pharmy industry of course but still makes me giggle that he has to get a twitter account (gasp!) AND learn to tweet (double gasp!)!
He always mocked that he would start a counter blog to mine (which I am not sure I want cause he is way funnier than me and I would probably lose followers to his blog instead of mine for all the happenings chez P) But now, it might be on... war of the blogs... an old fashion "he said, she said". I say bring it.

Will there be some labor on Labor Day for Auntie Er??
Thomas loved Anna and Anna loved Jack... poor sweetheart Thomas his older brother is stealing the chick's already. He even tried to win her heart with a foot massage! Now that is love.
It was SO great to see our friends Aunt Texie and Baby Anna Bananas. We love that Nana and Pop Pop have strategically placed themselves so close to many of our friends!

After that we practiced "leaping a building in a single bound" in the jumpoline! The kids were so good and worked up quite an appetite for pizza and cake. My friend Lori made the awesome cake. Remember her from Thomas' party... the one with three kids under three. yeah.... and she showered too. so annoying.
I think I need to go back to work... I had a little too much fun planning... :)

It was about four years ago right now (7:00AM) that I was hangin' with my friends Katie and Matt (as in the Today Show), had just gotten my epidural and my nurse, Awesome Amy (who was getting ready for shift change) said magical words.... "it looks like you'll have a baby by lunch time!" Jack didn't arrived until dinner time and has been unpredictable ever since! Happy, Happy Birthday Jack! We love you so much and I am so happy to be spending your special day with you. Cheers for an exciting and wonderful year ahead!
I'll be back... but just so I don't forget a few things we have been up to while I was not delighting in my inner super hero (that has apparently been repressed upon years of Strawberry Shortcake, Barbie and Cabbage Patch Kids):
- we had a GREAT visit with old friends Rachel and Violet! Violet is one of Jack's very first friends and he was SO excited to see her. In fact it is the first time I really saw him "showing off" for someone. Not becoming, but kinda cute.
- we discovered thomas has a peanut allergy. Ugh. We'll know more after Sept 1st allergist appt, at which time I am sure I will blog about it - because to be honest, blogging is much cheaper than therapy and not quite as devastating as a run in with AA.
- it's been hot Hot HOT! And our local theaters have free movies on Tuesdays for the kiddos. Jack loved watching Clifford the Big Annoying (oops, i mean) RED Dog. Thomas on the other hand, not so ready for the big screens.
- Pool pool pool pool pool. I wake up to the tune of, Are we going to the pool today... When are we leaving for the pool... Tell me what we are doing today (but make sure you say pool)....I have my bathing suit on, all ready for the... you guessed it, POOL!

My little buddy dressed himself for church on Sunday. Well, maybe a little help from Dad with the tie, but still, he wanted to look just like daddy. I didn't have the heart to tell him that we don't wear wool tweed when the temps are going to hit 90 degrees!
I also am having trouble with cutting his hair given the last hair catastrophe of '09 where my friend actually asked me if he cut it himself. To which I had to reply, nope, I actually paid money for it to look like that. Oh, Haircut Heather we miss you! Is it ridiculous to drive to Richmond to get his haircut, cause I am contemplating it!?

BUT then.... I was searching for a picture of an old school playpen and I found this- a new school playpen!

So now, I am posting about how if you are looking for a present for me - I would like this. I know, it's technically not for me, but oh, how it is! I am sure he would figure out how to climb out of it in a week, but that would be one GLORIOUS week.

"Jack would you like to be a doctor when you grow up?"
"No, mommy, I want to be a knight..... A knight in shining armor!"
Oh J-dog, you will definitely be some one's knight in shining armor. I don't doubt that for one minute... Just like your daddy.
