I finally got Nathan on video rolling over (I actually have about 10, but I'll spare you that and just attach one!) :-) Isn't he getting SO big???

BIG day at the Lance house!

Well, first, my baby (Nate-dog) can roll over!!! The first time he did it he was actually 5 weeks old, but it was a total accident. He wiggled so much he rolled right over! He's done it on-and-off for the last couple of months, but he is consistenly rockin' and rollin'! I don't have this one on video yet, but stay tuned! AND... my BIG BOY (Sean) can "sing" his ABC's!!! It is just about the cutest thing ever! I knew he could count to 20 on his own and say the first few letters of the alphabet, but tonight in the bath he was singing away!!! Here is his alphabet debut!

The future Michael Jordan

Giggle giggle!

Okay, so right when I get the camera out, Nathan stops the belly laughing. But here is a video of him giggling. It's still pretty cute! :-)

GREAT news!!!

Today I got the BEST news! I received the report from Sean's latest speech evaluation, and he officially is considered to no longer have a speech delay!!! He is right at the 30-33 month range for speech (which is exactly his age), and his comprehension level is that of a 39 month old! I'm SO thrilled! I can't even begin to tell you... I really think that having his tonsils and adenoids removed did the trick. THANK YOU DR. LIPPS!!! You're our hero! :-)


Okay, seriously, this kid was born needing a haircut...

Daddy's HOME!!!

Saturday we went to Indy to surprise Jamie at the airport. He'd been gone for a week in Denver to help his Aunt and Uncle build a room in their basement since Jamie's other Aunt, Kelly, is now living with them. Although he was a big help to them, we missed him terribly! But, Aunt Wendy and Uncle Wade treated him like royalty!!! We are thankful for their generosity and hospitality!

Jamie's flight was delayed about a million times which was starting to freak me out since neither of the boys had napped, but thankfully they were SUCH good boys ALL day! We hitched a ride with Mom and Dad (and Nick and Kyle) who were spending the night for Mom and Dad's 39th anniversary and a fun weekend with the boys. Thankfully, they let us hang out at the hotel until his flight arrived (which fortunately was NOT very late as they were able to get another plane).

Once we finally arrived at the airport, my heart started beating really fast - I couldn't believe how nervous I was! Nathan had fallen asleep, but Sean was eagerly waiting at the bottom of the escalator. Of course he was the LAST darn person to get off the stinkin' plane, but the look on his face when he saw us... well, it made it all worthwhile!

A nice lady at the airport offered to take our picture so you can see our "sign" (I'm just not very crafty). We are SOOOOO happy Daddy is home! We missed you!

Bumbo = Big boy!

Look at my big man sittin' up in his Bumbo! Too cute huh?!?

Jamie... one more day!

Think song from Annie:

"Tomorrow, tomorrow, he comes home, tomorrow... it's only a day away!!!!"

VBS wrap up party

Although Sean is technically too young to get in on the VBS action, Aunt Laine invited us to the VBS wrap up party last night. Talk about awesome! There were a TON of kids there (including Sean's friend from school, Sam), so Sean didn't really get in to the inflatable things that much, but he sure LOVED the slides!!! Of course having his cousins there sure helped add to the fun!

Although, I'm pretty sure that more than anything, he enjoyed watching Aunt Laine (a "swamp" director for VBS get "swamped"... it was messy, but funny!!!)

Whose crib is it anyway???

Unlike Mr. Sean, Nathan is ALL about his mobile! In fact, Jamie and I love to listen to him "talk" to the animals. Well, of course anything Nathan gets to do, Sean wants to do too!!! So, up he went into the crib to check it out with the Nate-Dog! Too funny!

We'll miss you Will, Amy and Natalie!

Notice the absence of the word "good-bye"... that's because we WILL see our dear friends Amy, Will and Natalie again soon! After all, they are moving to Colorado close to where Jamie's family lives!!! But, since we won't see them for awhile, they came over this week (along with the Schlittler's) for some pizza and quality time before heading West.

Brock, Jillian, Natalie and Sean all had such a great time playing together! The next morning, Sean was even asking for Brock! Here are some pictures from the night:

Jamie's phone

I finally got around to downloading the pictures off of Jamie's iphone tonight... this is a pretty random display of pictures (some are over a year old), but so cute!

Nathan - 3 months

I know I say this every time, but I can't believe Nathan is already three months old!!! He is such a good little baby... he is smiling like crazy and is really starting to babble. Yesterday we went and had his three month pictures taken, and like a pro, he was a natural in front of the camera!!! Thanks to his willingness to cooperate, Mommy ended up with A LOT of pictures!

Here are some of my favorites - isn't it just almost to much cuteness to bear?!? :-)
