ABC's and 123's

He really does say his ABC's all the way through now..and he counts to 10. He sings hte ABC's in a soft little singing voice. It is so cute. He says "seben" for seven. the 8, 9, and 10 get louder and more excited! I love it!
We say them a lot in the car on the way to and from school.
There is a story about the picture above....
That particular morning, I took his shorts out of his closet. As soon as he saw them, he started saying "hat,hat,hat". He went straight to his little basket of hats and pulled out the one that matched his shorts. He is such a little accessory man. He loves his hats and sunglasses!
I am glad. That will come in VERY handy once boating season is in full swing and that should officially begin for us THIS WEEKEND! YAY!

My Little Baby

Is not a baby anymore!

He is so grown up!
Every day there are so many things he does that absolutely blows me away..I thought I better record it for future reference. Excuse the list. I am not feeling super creative today.
He says his ABC's...I mean, he gets a little blurry after D, but the rhythm of the song is there. It's just a matter of time!
He yells through the house "daddy, 'ere (where) are you"? In the mornings, we hear him on his monitor say "George, ere (where)are you"?
He sleeps with Curious George every night and he calls him George. I have caught him a few times when I go in to get him in the morning trying to put a passy in George's mouth!
He loves to hear the story 5 little monkeys. I read it to him sometimes at night before bed. Every time you say "one fell off and bumped his head", he hits his little head with his hand.
Today, I handed him a banana and said, "here you go my little monkey" and he hit his head with his hand. He really knows how to put things together. It amazes me!
He is swimming under water at swim class. Not really unassisted for more than a second as he is being passed from instructor to Dan, but still...a second!
He calls out all vehicle names when riding in the car. "BUS". "CAR". "TRUCK". "JEEP". ( little guy already knows a jeep when he sees it- boy am I in trouble)
He says "WHOOOOAH" when we turn or go over a hill or bump in the car.
He stomps his feet when he gets mad.
He says OUCH just about anytime you touch him lately?? I think he is going for the pity points.
He wants to go down the stairs front way holding the rail. It scares me, but I know I have to let him learn.
I am sure that I have left out so much, because there are so many little details, but the main part is all that really matters. Dan and I love that little guy more than we can say. We tell each other every day that we are so amazed and what a great kid he is and how lucky we are. I can hardly stand it when I go cover him up before I go to bed...I just want to crawl in the crib with him he is such a little sweetie! I wonder if the awe will ever wear off?
I have been told that it usually only lasts through about the first 13 years and then returns again shortly after 18:)

Birth Day

Meet Sophie Kay Bartlett
Born April 25th 8:41 am
4lbs 15oz, 18 inches long

Meet Aleah Lucille Bartlett
Born April 25th 8:38 am
5lbs 1oz 18 inches long

Welcome to the world my precious little nieces

We have been patiently waiting to get our arms around you!

Your Papa is so proud

Nanny and KK love you ( almost as much as MeMe)
Hey..this is my blog, I can say it if I want to!

I would say it was love at first sight....

We certainly did not get to stay and love on you enough

Two precious little faces
Sophie on the left and Aleah on the right.
It was so surreal being there with two new little babies. I never thought I would even be able to tell you two apart, but you have already stolen my heart and I know each one of your sweet little faces.

Mommy did such a great job getting you ready. She held on until you were juuuust right, and then, just like that you were here! (I am pretty sure Jarah would describe it a bit differently than "just like that", but in the interest of keeping a long story short....)
I do not have a ton of pictures of mom from birth day, because by the time we FINALLY got to the hospital... she was in desperate need of some serious ZZZZZZZZ's.

The Champ!
