Rallying the Troops

Okay, this is TOTALLY random, but I'm going to try to use the power of the internet to help out an old friend. On this website, there is a gorgeous AND charming girl from my church in Chicago, that needs votes to become the next host of Real Savvy Moms. So, if you have a second - and feel that you probably SHOULD return the favor you owe me...take a second and vote for Kristi Glass. She's the one on the bottom left.

Look What My Baby Can Do...

This is my darling son, Jude, who sleeps through the night. And when I say through the night, I mean like ten hours straight. The best part is, he's been doing this since he was less than one month old. The child is a DREAM.
**DISCLAIMER - this picture was taken in the middle of the day. I DO actually put my child in pajamas.

So many random pictures that don't really fall into any category - so here we go. First off, my darling friend Stefanie had her baby shower last week. At most showers you get a lot of, "ooohs," and "that's so cute..." Stefanie on the other hand had some of the best baby shower lines I have ever heard.

Upon opening this gift (a small kit with thermometer, asperator, nail clippers, etc.) Stefanie says, "Wow - I'm so glad that you knew I needed this, because I didn't." Later, when she opened the same gift again, she said, "Oh perfect! Now I'll have one for each car." I LOVE Stefanie.

While my mom was in town, she bought Maddie a Mr. Potato Head that Maddie calls, "That Boy." So, all day I hear, "Hi That Boy" and "Where's That Boy?"

Jude has learned to suck his thumb. I have learned to swap thumb for binki.

And last but not least, we moved Madelyn out of her crib, and into her big-girl-bed. Ever since she has decided that she IS the baby of this family. She even went as far as calling herself "Maddie Baby" this afternoon. She climbs into Jude's swing and bouncer, and is constantly asking to go "nigh-night" in the crib she HATED. This morning I found her sitting in Jude's bouncer, just like in this picture. The only difference was that Jude was completely underneath her.

Jude's Blessing

Here are a few pictures from our Easter. We blessed Jude at church that day, and had a little party at Ross and Tammy's afterwards. I'd like to personally thank my mother for coming out at the last minute. What a great surprise - Madelyn couldn't have been more thrilled, and Jude loved all the attention.

People are always telling their kids that bad guys look like everyone else. I beg to differ...they look like this.
