Booster Seat

On Sunday, we got Joey a booster seat at Target. He tried it out on Monday, and we've already moved the high chair into the guest room. You can't see it in this pic, but we're also using the KaBoost that was bequeathed to us from Shae. Joey loves being at the big boy table!

New Kicks

Joey was pretending to be a Wonder Pet again. It was just too cute. He also loves to play with this curl out thing that says Go Bears! on one side and has an American flag on the other. When combined, the cuteness factor goes through the roof.

And did you notice the new sneakers? Daddy picked them out.

Music and a Masterpiece

I know it's been a few days since I posted, but there is no reason to fret. Since I was out of town for a few days, I've just been enjoying time at home with my family.
Joey has rediscovered this Wiggles guitar my Mom picked up for him on one of her yard sale trips (or at least that's how I remember getting it). He really enjoys dancing to the music.
I tried to get one posed picture in his "new" shirt from Ashtyn, but alas, he's been drooling like crazy. (I can only assume his canines are coming in.) Don't worry, we'll also get a pic of him in this shirt on the John Deere.
Joey's also been keeping us on our toes. Since he colors at school, we also let him color at home. We bought him washable markers, which we immediately took away because he's eating them. We replaced them with crayons. He doesn't try to eat them nearly as much, but as you can see, they are equally deadly on the living room walls. (I think there are some Mr. Clean Magic Erasers in our future.)

Club House

We were using the spare bedroom on the first floor as our office. Since it sat pretty much unused for at least the last 18 months, we decided to built out the closet in that room as the new office, and then repurpose the room as our guest bedroom/overflow for Joey's toys. Little did we know Joey would decide to claim the closet office as his club house.

Full Bloom

I know, I know, it's not what you want to see. But all that hard work my Mom and Dad put into the garden has paid off. The tulips are gorgeous. And that bleeding heart bush was barely even one branch when we transplanted it from the back of the yard that first summer. The clematis is coming in nicely, too.

Joey loves wearing his sunglasses when he's cruising on his tricycle.

Playing at the Park

After our trip to Target this morning, Joey and I stopped by a park we hadn't been to before. In one of the slide/jungle gym areas, they had these cool keys, which I actually think were supposed to play musical tones. Joey loved it!

Tricycle Ride

For some reason, my camera didn't want to keep anything in focus. But I really like this picture anyway.
Sometimes the pictures are in focus ...
And sometimes I use a pacifier strategically located outside the shot to get something resembling a smile.

Cheater, Cheater, Pants on Fire!

We decided to put on a photo shoot while I was home. I promise to post my own pics starting tomorrow, but in the meantime, I can't imagine why my sister would want to post this one on her blog anyway.

At the Car Wash

Joey had so much fun in Easton this weekend. He even learned "wax on, wax off" so he's ready to help Daddy this summer.

Easter Basket

In case you wanted to know what Joey got for Easter, I took a picture of his booty last night before I went to bed. Spongebob folding chair, lawn rake and shovel, Mr. Potato Head Easter Bunny, crayons, sidewalk chalk, and Elmo basket.

He was moderately excited to see everything.

And he truly enjoyed playing with Mr. Potato Head.

Mom, stop taking pictures already!

Of course, he loved the rake. Walked around with it like it was a broom. (Did the same thing with the shovel, too.) And doesn't he look like Mommy's little angel, with the sun kissing the top of his head? Silly, I know, but cute!
