I let Zach sit in a booster seat the other day, he really likes them.
He unbucled himself, on a busy street, to reach a granola bar.
I panicked. Yelled all the following things at him:
1. That's dangerous!
2. If we get hit you'll die! (I don't hide the truth from my kids, scary or not)
3. You can't ever sit there again!
Then I tried to be more literal, paint the picture for him;
Zach, if we get in a wreck you could fly out the window, and be very hurt on the street!
" mooomm, If I fly out the window I'll use my "wubs", to fly, it's ok!" While showing me his hand in the air....
Ribs? Wings? I was lost.
Until while playing that night I told the story to Jeff. Zach did it again. This time it hit me.
Zach believes he is Spider Man. He flies with his WEBS!
Poor kid thinks he has super powers! HA!

When Gwyneth was born they weighed her and said, 'oh', she already has a double chin!'
She turned 3 weeks old on Saturday. She is starting to stay awake a LITTLE more than she did last week! Maybe a few hours a day! She smiles more than before, I guess that's all a baby this little can do. but it's fun to watch her grow everyday. Her little legs are filling out, so she is losing the little Frog belly look. We just kiss and hold her all the time. She's getting a little spoiled, but I don't mind holding her all the time!

My boys think my glasses are a toy. I guess they are if I let them be! Brady set the timer and took multiple shots of himself, which was fun to watch him do! He also took the one of Zachary. He didn't know they were on upside down!

She had her first story time, with bog brothers and Gramma. She was very interested in the book.

Zach was hyper with excitment! He kept looking at her and telling me all the tiny things she had.
" look at her finger nails! They're so tiny", " oh, look at her small ears!" those were the 2 he liked the most I guess!

Here she is only a few minutes old, already happy, and looking around. She was in such a hurry to get here that mommies epiduryl didn't have time to set in all the way. But she was also nice enough that the speed made it do-able!

November 5, 2010. Last night as parents of only 2 kids! Grama Patti came from Utah to take care of us for a week, we went to dinner at Chipotle, and had ice cream for dessert. It was fun! After putting the boys to bed we tried to sleep, but couldn't. my mind was racing. Jeff and I were both super nervous, not only that, but we had a midnight check in at the hospital! I don't recommed it, but too late! Plans were made and I couldn't put it off, I was too excited! I had told the boys all day that the next morning I'd be gone to the hospital and that I'd bring home our baby sister. The last time was as I put them into bed. "I know mom! You told us already!" was Brady's reply!

Brady had his 5 yr old check up this morning. He is 45.5 lbs. (85%) 45.75 inches tall (94%) he is the average size of a 6 year old. HA! He's been this size for about 4-6 months.
Brady hasn't cried at shots since his 18 month check up. He prides himself on that fact. So on the way to the Dr. I asked him if he'd rather have the flu mist. "NO, I want the shot", was his reply. He was all psyched up for it! Luckily he accepted the mist, only because he had to have 3 other shots! With each shot his eyes got wide as the needle went in, a little shocked look passed over his face, but that was it! On the last shot he said, "oh, that kinda hurt." So funny! He's such a trooper!
His 5th birthday was last Saturday. It was a great time. He had 6 friends over, a house with 8 boys, pretending to be Jedis' is a little crazy! Thank heaven for Jeff, he taught the boys "sick moves", did a tug-o-war, a pinata, and made dry ice rootbeer. I never could have done it alone!
That night we had cousins over for dinner and cake, then headed to the ward Trunk-r-Treat. It was a super busy day, but it was really fun! We all slept really well that night!
As an added bonus Jeff took the boys last night to get new fish. Two Oscars, and 4 goldfish (for them to eat!) We moved the tank into their room, so it also serves as a night light. Brady chose the name Chris for his fish. That has been his favorite name since he was 2. So of course Zach's fish is also named Chris!
After a great morning we are home, and they are fighting. Brady purposfully drives Zach crazy, so he screams. Which drives me crazy. Lovely.

My friend Allyson took me for "glamour shots", as I teased her I felt like. She made me use a lot of hair spray, and make up. Which I guess worked well! It was a funny thing for me, I felt like a nerd, but it's fun to have nice pictures when you feel so ugly anyway.

Brady's preschool had a Halloween party, Zach was a great help, he passed out candy to all the kids. If they didn't say Trick R Treat he stood there and looked at them.... I had to give the shy kids candy.

We each had our own bag, some came home full, others a little empty!
