We also have a sneaking suspicion that teething has begun for both boys. Alexander has been holding his left jaw, and sticking his fingers into the back of his mouth (two year molars perhaps), and Kellan has been spending his days drooling and chewing on anything that comes into contact with his mouth, his favorite being his little arm.
Kellan has also become our 'binky baby.' Its so funny how things change with your second baby. Alexander was not given a binky (mommy rule #26), only on the rare public screaming occassion. However, the rule has been broken, shattered even, with baby #2. Now we never leave the house, or even the room without one handy, just in case.
I think this is one of the cutest pics of 'Baby Kel,' as Alexander now calls him. How can you not fall in love with that smile!?!
Here it is again in B&W.

Grandma and Grandpa delivered the sandbox Tuesday morning, but Alex had one question....
1. Use your level to ensure all sides are level to the ground.
2. Use your wheel barrow to bring the sand around. (Just make sure you are the one riding in the wheel barrow. This is much more fun!)
3. Wiggle your toes around in the sand to make sure there's plenty.
4. Jump around and pack down the sand with your feet.
5. Fill a bucket.

Luckily for me (I think) Alex also loves to wash his hands and face.

We find them in the playroom. We find them in the middle of his bedroom floor.
We find them in the window sill
ALL THE TIME!
And if you're lucky, you'll even catch the 'Bug Man' in the act.
Two years ago, I couldn't imagine what I'd do with a little boy, and now I can't imagine what I'd do without him.
Note to all family: We have lost ALL of our photos from last summer and this fall (i.e. 1st b-day, halloween, etc.) If you have any, please e-mail them to me @ Leanne7580@hotmail.com THANKS!!

....That I could keep a secret!! This blog is not about the boys, but I couldn't resist. I've been helping my good friend, Jessica's boyfriend Travis get ready for his proposal for the past two weeks, and today was the day!
Their story: Jessica and Travis have dated on and off since their
highschool days at Lake High School in Hartville, Ohio. Things finally got very serious last summer on their trip to Italy (how romantic, right?!?!) Over the past two months they've been ring shopping and had picked out 'the' ring. He was to pick up the ring last weekend, but told her that he wasn't able to because he
was so busy getting her flat tire fixed. Little did she know...
This is where I come in... Two weeks ago I get a call from Travis, asking me to help him plan his proposal, and he wants her students to help. Of course I'm exciting to be in on a secret... but can I not let the word slip?! My job was to organize everything at school. I got permission from our principal, let
Jessica's principal for next year (her former cooperating teacher) know, made sure that our teammates got coverage for their rooms so that they could attend, got a 'babysitter' for Jessica to make sure she was in her room as I snuck him
into the building.
So after playing dumb for the past two weeks, and feeling incredibly nervous all day (if anything goes wrong its my fault, right) I met Travis at the side entrance to our school and snuck him back to our music room, where Jessica's students were. They were each given a letter, and the spelled out "JESS WILL YOU MARRY ME?" She was paged to the music room to take care of a 'situation,' and found her students lined up and pretty much the entire staff in the music room (except those teachers who got stuck covering our classes, so that we could be there).
Travis popped out of the corner, and had the students hold up the signs.
Before we could hear an answer there was an attack of hugs from the kindergartners.
And then the momentAnd the tears
And finally, the answer we were all waiting for!Congratulations Travis and Jessica!
