Love my boys

Here's just a little peek into our typical Saturday morning. Beckett usually comes in to 'sleep with my my mommydaddy' (yes, it's become one word) and we cuddle, throw pillows and jump on Dad. It's truly one of my favorite times of the week. Beckett is such a loving little boy--he jumps at any chance to give a squeeze or a kiss. (Sometimes you get a little more than you bargained for...which explains N's face in that second picture). I love these two boys so much, and can't wait to meet the next one in only a couple of months.
Here are a couple of Beckett stories- lately he's been feeling a little bit territorial, but not about what you might think. He's very protective...of his name. Nathan often refers to him as 'my Beckett' and so he'll retort back, 'no, MY Beckett'. It's hilarious to watch them argue back and forth about who's Beckett he is.
The other day we were playing on our bed and Beckett accidentally kicked me in the stomach. I told him that he had to be careful with Mommy's tummy and to say sorry to baby brother. So he puts on his adorable pouty face and sullenly says, "sorry baby brother in there" and kisses my belly. I wish I could have captured in on video.
He's such a character...I love him so much.

Really? American Idol??

So, let me preface this post with a disclaimer: I have NEVER been a fan of American Idol. Last season I did watch the last few episodes, cause I had a mutual friend of Brooke White, but besides that, never. Well, I've surprised myself this season. For some reason I watched all of the auditions...which I actually hate, cause I feel so bad for the people who suck-who think they're legitimately good singers...(did any of you see the girl that Kara thought was playing a joke??it was super sad) and now I just want to see what happens. So I guess I'm a fan.  
I thought I'd share my favs for the season. 

#1-Danny Gokie. With a last name like Gokie, what's not to love??
This is actually my #4-Michael Sarver, but I'm too lazy to switch the pictures. I just love this guy cause he is not at all what you'd expect. I was surprised when I first heard him sing. 
#2-Kristen McNamera. She has an AMAZING voice. I got goosebumps hearing her sing. Simon doesn't think she's attractive, but I think she's really pretty. Whatever Simon.
#3-Lil Rounds. She's a mom of 3 kids. Props to her.

Happy Birthday B!

On Thursday we celebrated Beckett's 2nd Birthday! It's hard to believe it's already been 2 years since he came into this world, but we're sure glad he did. Here are a few pictures from his 2-year shoot and also an update on what he's been loving lately.
As he is now two, he figured he should start acting the part--and he's excited that he can now identify 20 letters. 
He can count all the way to ten, but if he's feeling a little lazy we hear 1-2-7-8-9-10.
His favorite past time is sitting on the computer in front of an open word document, identifying letters on the keyboard, and then typing them and seeing them on the screen. He gets pretty enthusiastic about
it, and will sometimes even shout the letters in his excitement.
Super Why is still his favorite TV show, and when identifying letters on billboards, store windows etc. he often refers to the letter Y as Super Y.
He loves blueberries and calls them grapes.
He's currently developed an aversion to anything small that he can't identify. The other day he was sitting in his high chair and suddenly got really nervous-pointing to something on the floor. I finally interpreted that he was saying 'little bug' over and over with concern. I didn't even realize he knew what bugs were. 
Oh, and it was a piece of lint.
He loves his cars and is content with 2 or 3 or 4 of them in his hands at one time (as shown in these pictures)
Love you Beckett! Happy number 2!
