True Story II

Early to bed for the Party Boys last night (8 pm). At 9 pm, I hear Jason through the baby monitor sing
"Who put the bomp
In the bomp bah bomp bah bomp
Who put the ram
In the rama lama ding dong?"

This was even funnier than my 3 am wake-up call to "We will, we will rock you!"

Photo of Jason wearing his "bike helmet" and driving his "motorcycle".

True Story

Saturday AM the boys dillydally and have fun playing on their way to breakfast. Meandering down the stairs, they reach the living room and make a dash for the couch and their toys. Jason starts dancing around the living room and Kevin starts spinning. I can see that they are in no hurry for Oh's or bacon and I sit down on the couch to watch the floor show. Joe is in kitchen promoting breakfast. He calls out, "Jason! Come on in. It's time for Oh's."

Jason's response, "No. I doing a little dance, makin' little love, get down tonight."

Kevin has invented a new word.


Proper use would be as follows:
"Good night, see you tumorning."
"We are going to the zoo tumorning."

("tomorrow" + "morning" = "tumorning")

The boys had their 2 1/2 yr exam. It was a bit of a cry-fest as both boys were tired (they should've been asleep instead of fooling around until 10:30 at night). They wanted to watch the fish in the tank in the lobby and weren't happy about being torn away from that. So tears, whining and sniffling. That's how we kicked off this exam.

Anyway, here are the stats:
Jason: 38" tall and 33 lbs 2 oz
Kevin: 38" tall and 30 lbs 8 oz

Both boys are in the 93rd percentile for height. Kevin is in the 63rd percentile for weight and Jason is in the 65th or 92nd or something like that. It was difficult to hear over the crying. The doctor also threw out some other stats, something about comparing them to other boys their height or whatever. The numbers were slightly different putting Kevin in the 25th percentile for weight. Let me tell you, when it's the end of the day and I'm carrying Kevin, it does NOT feel like he's in the 25th percentile for weight.

They are happy and healthy kids. Feed them, water them, try to get them to rest and run around a bit and they seem to be doing everything else just fine. Great job boys!

Makes Me Laugh Outloud

So many things about this video make me laugh outloud.
Kevin right up in the camera saying "Cheeseburgers" which is our version of "Cheese!"
Kevin dancing is adorable. I love when he tells Joe to stop and then goes on dancing to his own little beat or whatever rhythm he has in mind. And then there's that funny little smile he does at 1:00.
Funny boy

Camera! Lights! Action! Part Deux

Camera! Lights! Action!

Playing Garbage Man

The boys like to play "Garbage Man". There are a couple of versions of this game. In one version, Jason "climbs" the rocking chair and yells out, "Hold on tight, JaAdd Imageson and Kevin" and "Don't fall off" and "Be careful, Jason and Kevin". Other versions have the boys filling a laundry basket with books or toys or alphabet letters and then they toss the contents out or toss them in. Whatever works. Enjoy the show!


I've told several of you about how Jumpy is a night owl. He wakes up at 1:30 AM, 2:30 AM, 3:30AM or at the exact moment that I am having my deepest, best sleep and he belts out tunes or laughs or talks to himself. While I do miss my sleep, it's actually pretty funny and pretty cute and definitely worth being awakened for. I've been trying to capture our little Neil Diamond but he's been on to me and has been clamming up. I finally caught our wee little lounge singer last week. Enjoy!

In case you can't make out the tune. It's the chorus from "I've Been Working on the Railroad". He' singing "Dinah".
