Okay, so there isn't anything special about this picture, I just thought he looked so cute! :-)

Steak 'N Shake

So what's the best part about living in Central Illinois? Well, that would depend who you ask. If you ask my Grandma Becky, Aunt Wendy or Aunt Kelly, they would tell you the best part is STEAK 'N SHAKE! Yep, they LOVE that place! In fact, when they come to visit, we have to eat there at least twice... but as you can see, I don't mind. I LOVE their french fries!!!

Piano man

My cousin Kyle is really getting good at the piano. When I grow up, I want to play just like him! For now, I'll just keep practicing!

Too big for a bib

Mommy is always trying to put a bib on me and I just can't stand them! But this one is fun to play with, just as long as I don't have to wear it to eat!

Me and Papa

Grandma and Grandpa came over for dinner the other night. Papa and I hung out with Bailey (the worthless cat as Daddy likes to call her). I love it when they come over!

My first picnic!

Today was SUCH a beautiful day we had to do something outside! So, Mommy, Daddy and I went to McDonald's and got dinner... then we took it to the park and had a picnic! It was so much fun just hanging out and goofing around. I hope we get to do it a lot this summer! Here are some of the pictures of me (aren't I cute?!?)

Daddy was swinging me around and being so silly... I was having a blast!
... But then Daddy needed to rest...

So then Mommy and I got to play! She was tickling my belly... I was laughing so hard. I had the best time today... maybe we can do it again tomorrow!

I am the Jedi Master...

Check out our Jedi in training... Nick and Kyle are so proud!!! Oh, and just for the record, the light saber is Daddy's!!!!

Our little soccer star!!!

I remember when Jamie and I were on our way to my sonogram appointment to find out the sex of the baby (aka - Sean)! If it was a boy, we were going back and forth between Sean and Nathan. I remember telling Jamie that Sean sounds like a soccer player's name (probably because my friend Kelly's brother, Shawn, was a soccer player)! Little did I know that I would be right! We bought a set of balls (football, baseball and a soccer ball) for Sean at Walgreens one time (another one of my famous impulse buys). A few weeks ago, Sean started walking and kicking the soccer ball! He is so cute and so funny when he does it - AND, he'll ONLY do it with the soccer ball! I don't know where he gets it, but it cracks me up every time. Watch out world, I may be raising the next David Beckham!!!

I love my horsey!

So Jamie wants Sean to be an architect, but judging by how much he loves his animals, I think he may be a veterinarian. He was loving on his horsey tonight and was giving him lots of kisses! When he got off the horse, he started blowing him kisses - it was too funny!


Aunt Amy and Uncle Will gave me this really cool barnyard set of animals for my birthday last year. I really love the animals, but the rooster is my FAVORITE!!! I have to carry it around with me everywhere lately! Even in the car!

He IS his father's son!

Well, I think we are finally getting past the "I need to watch Manny every waking moment" phase. He will usually watch one in the morning and one in the evening and then he'd rather read or play. We've really been trying to limit his tv watching, and I think it's finally paying off (although it doesn't look like it in this picture!)

Giddy up cowboy!

Well, Sean is finally getting big enough to ride his horsey that he got for his birthday last year. We couldn't help but take a video (or two) of him on it... he's too funny!

Pool time fun!

Mommy, Daddy and I went swimming at Grandma and Grandpa's on Sunday. It was SO much fun! My girlfriend Natalie (and her parents) came over too! I can't wait to do it again!!!

I love my Aunt Elaine!

My Aunt Elaine bought me this cute shirt. It says, "My Mom has the best job in the world... taking care of me!" Thanks Aunt E!

I'm getting so big!

I've been working really hard at using my spoon... I'm getting pretty good!

My buddy Brock...

Mommy and Daddy let me have my friend Brock over to play a couple of weekends ago. We had soooo much fun!!!

Thanks Aunt Amy!!!

My Aunt Amy bought me this cute outfit... aren't I adorable?!? (Or ornery!)
