And for our next trick, We will perform . . . Opening Doors!

I knew it would happen eventually, but doesn't it seem like right when you have gotten your children to stop doing something you didn't want them to do, they learn how to do something else? And, since they just figured out how to do it, they want to do it over and over and over again! Well, this weekend, my boys have mastered opening doors. The days of keeping them confined in our common areas of the house are over!

This is Jack (yep, in his new COLTS jersey) practicing opening and SLAMMING the laundry door. Today, I found him in the computer room (typing on the key board), in the bathroom (ready to do something in the toilet) and in the nursery (spreading diapers around the room).

This is James, again in his new COLTS jersey, getting ready to go into the bathroom and is obviously quite proud of himself. For the most part, he just sits back and watches Jack get into all the things he shouldn't. And then, like any good big brother would, shakes his finger at him as tells him, "No, No!"

So, until I can get to the store to purchase the things for the door knobs, Jesse and I will be on our toes!

Here are some other pictures from today:

This is James waiting for the flash!

Jack trying to give me back my phone. I think he wants to exchange it for the camera!

Pay no attention to the mess behind him. It's not really there - optical illusion!

He knows what to do when a camera is on him :)!

How was it possible?

I was going through some of my old photos of the boys and found this picture . . .

This was about 10 minutes before we left for the hospital for the c-section. I am still amazed at how big I was. I honestly didn't feel that big. Now I see "normal" pregnant women who never get half this size at 9 months pregnant. I remember when I was about 25 weeks along, one of my friends sent a 9 month pregnant picture of herself and we were about the same size (I think I was a little bigger).

Here's to hoping the next one is a single . . .

Why is this hard for me???

So many of you awesome bloggers make it look so easy. This is a current picture of my family.

I have been trying for the past hour to get it posted in my "About Me" section. Apparently, you have to sell a kidney for this to happen!

Let's try this again . . .

So, I have decided to try this again. This is actually my third time trying to start a blog. The first time I had no idea what to write so I gave up before I started. The second time, I wrote, and wrote, and wrote. I went back to check something and didn't realize that I had to save first! So, all was lost. Now, I hope I can figure things out. Those of you that know me know that I am somewhat computer literate so I should be able to do it.

So far this weekend . . . The Aggies lost and the Irish lost . . . I guess we still have hope for the Colts!

This picture is obviously old but it is the only one of I have with boys wearing Colts attire. If I can find Colts jerseys I will certainly post with an updated picture.

I feel like I should post this before it gets lost. More later . . .
