(Seth trying to do his homework on the computer with Talon right by his side, wanting to be involved)

These are just some of the random pictures I took. Grandma gave Talon a haircut while we were there.
When we go to Starbucks now, Talon thinks he is entitled to whatever we get. He ever-so-sweetly holds out his hand and says, "Mine?". Daddy bought him his own Vanilla Bean Frappuccino on the way home so we could drink ours in peace (and Mr. Ants-In-His-Pants didn't need any caffeine!!)
(This was at Walt and Rachel's. He had a blast playing with his cousins, and he rarely passes up an opportunity to play the guitar!)

1) Anthony made me a latte the other night while I was working on the computer, but I was very responsible with it. Of course, I wouldn't have set it next to me on the ever-so-small-and-wobbly tv tray; and when Kaitlyn started fussing, naturally I gave myself plenty of space when I reached down to pick her up off the floor. She did not then proceed to kick her feet and send my 18oz coffee sailing through the air, spilling its contents all over the living room rug. To which, I did not panic, and half throw her into her dad's arms so I could get a towel and clean up the disaster. I did not have to spend a large portion of the evening trying to figure out the shampooer on my vacuum. I did not get frustrated when there was a huge brown spot on the rug when I was done, and I definitely did not have to spend about an hour last night (after everyone else was snuggled sweetly in their beds), trying to remove the huge (and now dried) coffee stain. Not me!
2) At work a couple of nights ago, when I returned from the cafeteria to the PICU, I did not stand outside the door at the card reader, swiping my badge 7 or 8 times to get back into the unit, only to discover I was swiping my debit card. Nope, not me!

We had a little party for him at home. He thought the party hats were pretty great- for about five minutes, then he was done with his. Of course, this morning, he found his party hat and immediately wanted it on. He probably would have worn it all day if I wouldn't have made him take it off so we could get ready for church!
Among the many gifts he got, was a red trike from us, and a four-wheeler from Papa and Granny. He spent a good portion of the night switching back and forth, riding them around the house. Of course, he thought it was more fun when we would push him around so he didn't actually have to do any work!
We're going to Oregon this week, and Grandpa and Grandma are planning a party for him there. Something tells me we're probably going to come home with a few more things than we left with!
Chatting on the phone with Grandma. Mommy gets a phone and Talon gets one. That way, if he wanders off, I can still talk. I put it on speaker phone and sometimes clip it to my shirt so I can have my hands free while I talk. Talon thought this was a great idea and had to have his phone clipped on as well!

Talon: Mama, up?
Me: Honey, Mommy has to sleep. You're gonna go back downstairs and play with Daddy.
Talon: Up! Up!
Me: You want to take a nap with Mommy?
Me: OK, but you have to be quiet and go to sleep, otherwise you have to get down.
(I laid him next to me on the bed, and he immediately starts giggling and wanting to play.)
Me: Talon, you have to be quiet and go to sleep now.
Talon: (Pointing to the bathroom and whispering) Shhhhh! Dada!
