"The Legends About Me are ALL TRUE"

Guess who is feeling better??!! I love his new Gym shirt (not his BAD hair, I foresee a shave down in the VERY near future =)!! Guess who is now the official "Parent" that attends Gymnastics!!!?? Tonight (and last week) Shane went in with Owen to attend Gymnastics, and give me a break!! It was so cute to see my boys in class together. Owen actually did better with his Daddy and did everything he was supposed to (if you need a reminder how he did with me, read this or this =).

Sitting with Daddy...how sweet- that NEVER happened with me!

Now you can get impressed with my new found Gymnastics lingo =) - THE DONKEY KICK!!
THE FORWARD ROLL - When I would try this - I would get slapped on the hand while hearing "NO MAMA!!" =) Look at that face!I love this picture - Owen has yet to master "jumping" - so here is Shane trying to teach him - Shane is jumping and fuzzy from the motion - you can see Owen perfectly clear as he is NOT MOVING - HAHA!!Then this was the pinnacle of O's night - TACKLE DADDY!!TACKLED!! Bad pic - but you get the point =)!So tonight I was the proud Mama with Claire and took pictures!!! We missed Sterling tonight as he is not feeling well...get better "Shterling" =)!!

Sidenote: Claire spent most of the night coloring with a few other girls (sisters of Owen's classmates) during class. I could not hear her, but I could see her talking and talking and talking...then I was concerned when one of the instructors was sitting in there with them, looked up at me and gave me a grin. I had a feeling, so I went to check in with her and make sure she was not being sassy to the other girls (I know you are saying, "No, not Claire" =)).
I asked if everything was okay and if she is being good...the sweet instructor looked at me with very sympathetic eyes and says:
"Claire says she hopes the new baby is a girl, congrats!"
I had to explain that I am not pregnant...then have a long talk with Claire to ensure that she does not in fact think I am pregnant and find out how many people she has told!! Still don't know, but she finally understands that I am not pregnant....OH Claire!!! Never a dull moment!! Here is a shot of Me, Claire and Owen in the hospital when O was born in her precious scrubs!!! She only thinks she wants me have another girl!! (I agree with her though =), this picture brings tears to my eyes EVERY time)!
Hope you had a great day!!!

Aww we missed you guys tonight too! Owen is doing SOOO good!! :) It will only continue to get better! (I still want him in class with me at Sonshine School...ha, you know I'm going to bug you about that until he comes! ;))
I agree with you...I LOVE BLOGGING!!! I was just having a conversation (one of VERY many in the past 24 hours!) with God and was thanking him for all of my new 'friends' in the blog world. It really has helped so much to have so many people praying for us. God wants us to lean on each other in times of need, and our need is for prayers. Our need is being filled every moment of the day! What a great feeling! :)

Heath finally said tonight after showing him all the responses,"Ok, now I am starting to really like this whole blogging thing!" :)

Can't wait for Thursday to let loose girl and have some fun! :)

Ah so cute, what a great experience to go with Daddy! Claire is too cute! Love hearing their little antics :)

Brooke Bertalan said...

Owen is so cute in there with Shane! Was tackling part of the gymnastics instructions?? Haha! Too cute.
I agree with Tara. You guys need to get on a roll with having another baby. I can't wait to see what you have next. Owen is still a sweet little baby boy to me even though I can not hold him in my arms for longer than a few minutes even when he is cooperating (what a chunk!) Oh yes, and the shirt fits his personality perfectly!

Can't wait to see you tomorrow night!

The picture of when Owen was born is precious!!
Kids are funny about the telling people that they are getting a new baby. My neice told her kindergarten teacher that my sister was having twins! She then explained to my sister that she asked God for them, so that's why she told Ms. M. =) Oh the faith of kids.
