Lots of Fun

Well, I'm obviously not doing very well at keeping this updated often. I guess that is just because I've been working HARD! I'm on Chapter 4 of 6 in my Thesis writing......
But, here are some updates and cute pictures for you anyway.
Jaden has been getting lots of training on tasks around the house.....
Here is is helping Grandpa K refinish the bathroom cabinets...

Of course...after all that work a guy just needs to kick back and go for a cruise

We also got to hang out with Grandma & Grandpa H one Sunday after church
Hey grandpa...stop tickling me!!!

Jaden has a LOT of toys and now he thinks it is pretty fun to take them out of the bins. We're working on putting them IN as well....but, one morning daddy thought it would be funny if Jaden sat among the toys.

Yes, he's allowed crazy hair first thing in the morning!
This is another new toy from G&G K. It makes a fun popping noise!

Today's project is fixing the crumbling rock wall. We need to mix some mortar...
Another day, another's task is swiffering the floor!
He really had a good time with this task.....see that smile!
And still, every day he sees the handle in the corner of the laundry room he goes after it. I guess I just have to teach him how to do it well and I'll always have clean floors!!! :-)
Valentine's day brought MORE presents. Man, when Grandma carried the wrapped gifts into the room, Jaden's eyes lit up. I guess with all those weeks of "Christmas" leading right into birthday presents he figured out that those wrapped packages are really fun!
This was from G&G K and a BIG hit with the little musician! He opens his mouth like this every time he gets to banging!

On the 16th it was our 5th Anniversary of the day Stephen proposed. We usually try to do something fun on the 16th instead of the 14th cause there is less of a waiting line anywhere. One of our friends tried to tell us that we only get ONE anniversary a year....but I disagree! I like our 16th tradition! We ACTUALLY went on a date. Okay, we ate Subway sandwiches and went to a movie....but was fun!
Today we learned how to scoop up the dog poo from the yard. A useful skill!

Then we played "volleyball" with another V-day gift.

Jaden thought it was really funny when mommy would catch the ball too!

After lots of days of fun....Grandpa K had to go home. :-(
I think the little guy misses him a bit! They had a lot of fun! I don't know WHAT will happen when Grandma has to go too. ....Let's not think about that just yet! We still have 2 weeks of fun ahead!

Oh...and have I mentioned that I think Jaden is a genius!? When Jaden had his 1 year checkup the doctor said that babies can't really feed themselves with silverware until about 18 months. He said that until then they have no way to telling where the end of the spoon/fork will end up so they can't get it in their mouths. HERE'S what I have to say to that.....

Pure genius!
