Alex and Nelson were playing basketball together the other day and Alex had his headband and writbands on so I dressed him in the rest of his Jazz basketball clothes and put this cute little John Stockton jersey on Nelson that aunt Jana gave him. Thanks aunt Jana, I love it! Aren't they the cutest little basketball players ever!
I just thought this was a really cute picture of Alex. He is at such a fun age and also at a very frustrated age because he is starting to talk really good, but I don't always understand him very well. I have been saying to him alot lately "I don't understand" and he gets really mad and says "NO! NOT STAND!"

The other morning Alex woke up with a huge craving for Mac N' Cheese and he was going to throw a huge fit until I made him mac n' cheese for breakast so I decided to pick my battles and this was not one of them so the kids got mac n' cheese for breakfast and as you can see they were all pretty happy about it.
Look who's Clapping and Walking! I have seriously been trying to get this kid to clap for forever! Then one day I got him out of the bathtub and layed him on the floor and he just started clapping and laughing! It was so cute! And he is finally getting brave enough to walk. He has gotten even better since I took this video. He will all of the sudden just stand up and start walking. Six steps is about his all time high right now, but he gets better everyday.( by the way, I have since retired the obvioulsy too small p.j. top he is wearing in the video. I was a little embarrased that he was wearing too small of clothes, but oh well, I think his fat little belly is so cute!) He has also turned into a little chatter box. He has always been so quiet and all of the sudden he is constantly and loudly doing his little baby talk. Mostly it is on his play cell phone. He loves to talk on the phone!

This is a picture of my cute boys in the tub right after I buzzed Alex's and Jaxon's heads. I really like Jaxson's hair like this, but I almost cried when I cut all of Alex's off. For some reason I have a weird emotional bond to Alex's hair. I just think its so cute! I guess it will grow back, right?

Alex almost wasn't anything for Halloween this year because he refused to put on a costume. I finally convinced him to put on the Batman costume by telling him he can beat up spiderman all he wants when he's batman and batman wins everytime because he's stronger!
This picture shows perfectly exactly how Nelson felt all night :(
I had plans this halloween to do fun activities with the kids all day, but then like usual the day was crazy and I ended up taking Nelson to the doctor(The doctor said it is just the stomach flu, but his body is having a hard time getting rid of it since its been a week now! So he gave him some medicine that should help. He threw up again saturday night, but hopefully that will be the last of it and he will finally get better. The poor kid is seriously so miserable!). So once again things didn't exactly turn out how I had planned, but that night after we visited both families Jeremy put Alex and Nelson to bed and I took Jaxson around the neighborhood Trick or Treating. It was really fun to be able to spend some one on one time with Jaxson.

Jaxson just finished Fall Soccor. He was big enough to move up to the older team this year and it gave him a little more competition. He Loves soccor and he is really good at it too.
Playing in the leaves...............
Eating disgusting food.............
I have been really excited to do some fun halloween things with my kids this year, but for the last 2 weeks someone has always been sick so we never even carved pumpkins or anything so finally tonight for dinner I made worms with brains covered in guts (spagetti and meatballs) and the kids thought it was the coolest thing ever! Nelson has been sick on and off all week, but he hadn't thrown up for a full day and was eating and drinking like normal so I let him eat some spagetti ( I thought that was a cute pic of him all covered in spagetti), but I guess the poor kid just couldn't handle it, he ended up throwing up again tonight. It made me feel like a pretty bad mom for feeding him spagetti!

Alex is at such a fun age. He is constantly making me laugh (or cry depending on the mood he's in!). He used to wake up really grouchy in the morning, now he wakes up all silly and hyper(at 5:30 in the morning, I might add!). Although, he does need a bowl of cereal immediatly or it can turn to grouchy real fast! He is definately a moody 2 year old! He doesn't really have temper tantrums like Jaxson did. He just cries...and cries..... and cries. He is just a sensitive little boy. His new thing is everytime he gets in trouble he comes to me with his little puppy dog eyes and says " Be nice to Alex mom!" or "Say sorry to Alex mom!" He is really good to his little brother and absolutely adores his older brother. He copies everthing Jaxson does and says. He has started to be very independent. whenever he spills something he insists on cleaning it up, he insists on throwing his own diapers in the garbage,(I know, that should mean he would be old enough to be potty trained, been there done that, very traumatizing for the both of us!), basically he insists on almost everything being done in a very specific way or it could set off the tears! I guess that is life with a 2 year old! Besides all the terrible twos, he is such a great kid with such a cute personality!
Nelson is developing such a cute personality. He loves to explore and play with toys. He can't get enough of his brothers. He absolutely loves them. I am still his favorite person in the world, but he is starting to venture a little! There have actually been times he wanted Jeremy instead of me! (he really just likes to play with jeremys phone, but i pretend its just that he wants Jeremy to make him feel good!) He just had a dr.'s appt. and he weighs 22 lbs! That seems so big to me. The percentiles showed basically that he is short, fat, and has a huge head! Thats ok, I'm sure he'll grow out of it! He isn't walking yet, because he is a little scaredy cat, but he gets around plenty fast anyway. He has mastered the stairs and crawls up and down them all day long and laughs at his new skill. He is basically a happy kid, but he hates to sleep so he gets tired and then fights it like crazy so it seems like my whole day is spent trying to get him to take a nap. Once I finally get him to bed at night he sleeps great all cuddled up next to me all night long! SPOILED! He is growing up so fast it makes me sad! When I think about how I am responsible for these boys whole lives and for the kind of men they will become it is a really overwhelming feeling. I just hope I have what it takes! I sure am blessed though to have such great kids and a great husband.
