riding the combine

Warner begs to ride the combine every day, so for the past 2 afternoons we have been riding the combine with daddy as he cuts corn. Warner is in awe!! "Look at the corn mommy" - as it's filling the back of the combine, "where the tractor go?" - as the tractor takes a load to the big truck. He loves every minute of it! And daddy loves it just as much!!

i love chicken

I took these pictures tonight of Warner eating his favorite - chicken nuggets!! He is so funny these days - you never know what's going to come out of his mouth. One morning this week he told me, "that fish gonna get me" - talking about a plastic fish. I said "that fish is not going to get you" and he said "daddy said that fish get me." He totally made that one up! Then yesterday out of no where Warner said, "I wanna go back to beach mommy". I told him to tell Buddy & Kissy!

I've been working so hard on his big boy room. I'm so excited about it!! As soon as it's all finished I'll have to post some pictures. I've had so much fun doing it - and most importantly Warner has been great! He has his little routine - read books, say his prayers, hugs & kisses - and then he's good to go. I'm so thankful for my good sleeper!!

Daddy starts to cut corn tomorrow, so we won't be seeing him as much. Harvest is an exciting time of year, but it also means very long hours!

Warner is still obsessed with trains! Yesterday morning we were over at Sam's house and Warner would not leave without 'Gordon' - one of the Thomas trains. I thought we could leave with it and then he would forget about it and I could sneak it away and give it back to Sam later in the day. Well, as I type this (a day later) he still has it in his hand. He has bathed with it, slept with it, and even puts in on the table next to him while he eats!! I will be buying Sam another 'Gordon' as soon as I find it in the store.

Life with this little boy is NEVER dull!!!!!

monkey see, monkey do

Not only does he say EVERYTHING we say, he also tries to do EVERYTHING we do. We are all a little under the weather - terrible colds! - so everynight I have been putting Vick's vapor rub on his chest and nose. Well, he was getting a little too quiet earlier, and I look over and he has completely covered his face and arm with Vick's. Smart kid!!

2 years, 3 months

You are growing up too fast, and I don't like it!!! You repeat everything we say. This is scary!! Ther other night we saw some pretty scary lightening and you said, "oh gosh!" Where have you heard that?? You are a little tornado - love to explore and you are curious about everything. Many of your friends started school last week, and I can't believe that will be you next year! I just want to keep you at home with me forever. I worried and worried about the day we would take you out of your crib, and you never skipped a beat. Now getting rid of the paci will be a different story. You LOVE that thing!! What am I going to do?? I find myself carrying on a conversation with you, and I stop and think when & how did you grow up this fast. Your 2 favorite things right now are TRAINS & GOLF! You always have a train in your hand, and you are constantly telling daddy "I ready to play golf." You are growing up so fast and we are enjoying every minute of it. How did we get so lucky to have you in our life?? We are so blessed!!

quick trip

My mom came for a visit last week to help me with some things around the house. Mainly Warner's room - as of a couple of weeks ago he is officially out of the crib and in his big boy bed!! He has done so good - I had no idea it would be this easy. My baby is growing up!! Later in the week we went to visit my brother who has just moved to Hattiesburg. He starts graduate school next week at Southern. We had such a great visit!! Warner is crazy about his baby cousin. I just hope they will have us back after the damage Warner did while we there!!

videos from the beach

I forgot to post these with the beach pictures. The first video is what Warner spent most of his time doing while we were on the beach. He would fill the dump truck with sand, then push it up and down the beach, and dump it. The waves knocked him down a couple of times - he did not care for the salt water! This $15 dump truck was worth every penny...

Pat asked me while we were in the pool if it was okay to throw Warner in the air. I told him that would be fine - then he proceeded to throw him across the pool. It didn't seem to bother Warner a bit. He loved it and was ready to do it again!

Warner overheard me last night talking to Chris about going to see Pat & Gibson next week. He went straight for the door saying "I see Pat, Isson, & Baby Jaurel." He doesn't miss a thing!!

One more funy story. On the beach one day I was laying out beside the tent and I said, "I'm burning up. I've got to get back in the shade." I didn't even know Warner was paying attention until he started at one end of the tent and went around saying, "you burnin up mommy?, you burnin up pat?, you burnin up kissy?" This went on for the next 30 minutes!!

Tunica Riverboat

We went for a ride on the Tunica Riverboat yesterday. There is only one word to describe the day - HOT!!! We had a great time despite the heat. Chris' parents and brother's family went with us. We mostly just chased the boys around, but they all had fun and that's all that matters!
