my {middle} man

Something tells me this one's not going to get lost in the shuffle of being the middle of 3 boys...between his fashion sense and that dimple, he can't help but stand out! His latest escapades: smashing grapes with his armpits, putting peanuts in his ears, getting his hand stuck in the opening elevator door at school {one of my top 3 scariest mother moments...the other two being our times in the NICU} and only wanting to poop in his underwear! He sure knows how to keep things exciting around here!

--naked slip 'n slide--

i bet that title got your attention!
sunday afternoons are my most favorite time of the week! it's family grocery shopping, errands or other chores...just time be together and have fun! so this past sunday we combined two of the boys favorite things - water and nakedness!
{does anyone else have children that strip their clothes off at every opportunity? it's a rare afternoon if my boys aren't running around in their underwear...and my neighbors can attest to that.}
they had a blast!
::life just doesn't get much sweeter than that!::

duncan @ 6 months

this baby is the definition of joy! he is rolling everywhere, can sit for a little while, drools constantly but no teeth, smiles, coos and laughs from sun-up to sundown, loves the exersaucer and puts everything in his mouth. his hair is really dark and his eyes are blue except for a streak of brown in his left one, so the verdict's still out on what they will be. he LOVES ford and ford LOVES him; ford is always talking to him and singing to him and giving him toys or his paci, and he loves to make him laugh. luke is indifferent, although he seems to warming up to him a little more now that duncan is more interactive. it's hard to believe he's already 1/2 of a year old, but it's also hard to remember life without him!
6-month stats:
weight: 18~10 (75%) by far my biggest baby! i can't remember what the other 2 were at 6 months, but i know ford only weighed 19 lbs when he turned 1!
height: 26 3/4 inches (70%)
head: 17 3/4 inches (80%)
at least he's proportionate! i like to say there's just more to love!
