Two of my boys are another year older! Jeff is having issues with being closer to 30, neither of us can believe that we are 28 this year! Jonathan, oh my baby! He will be six on Wednesday! SIX! I cannot believe how quickly this year has gone. Jo is maturing into quite the young man. Saturday, we took the family and a friend to a KU women's basketball game. It was great! They happened to be playing Texas A&M and so that was double fun! KU lost and so Jo was a little bummed, but he had a blast! Actually, all of us did. I fed Alex pretty quick after the game started and so we both got to enjoy most of it. It was unbelievable - Alex stayed awake for the entire time (except, his eyes finally closed with about 2 minutes left in the game)! At one time, I was holding him close to me. He had been fussing a little bit, I thought he was getting tired, so I took him from A, and held him close and was trying to get him to calm down and dose off to sleep. He just wouldn't though, and then Jeff said, "Sendy, maybe he wants to watch the game." I was thinking, sure, he wants to watch the game. Jeff, he's 2 months old! But I tried it anyway. I couldn't believe it, as soon as I turned him around, he calmed down and we both noticed that he started following where the teams were with the ball. It was hillarious! I handed him over to Jeff so he could watch the game with one of his boys. Meanwhile, Jonathan was watching the game with A. Watching him enjoy the game was entertaining enough for me! He was just as loud as the friends we had in college when we would go to games. He was getting into it with all the other fans and when the guy cheerleaders would yell in their megaphones, he would chant right along with them. It was great! It seemed like A was having a great time too, I'm so glad that she was able to come along, Jo really liked having her there with us. Adie had a fun time as well, but when I left to go feed Alex, she had some separation anxiety. But as soon as we got her some popcorn and water, she settled in to enjoy the game again. She bounced around with Jo some. During the last half at one of the longer time-outs, we ended up on the screen! I didn't see it until right before they moved to someone else, but I'm glad they caught the kids up there. Jo was moving his hands playing along with the band (you really have to see it to get what I'm saying - he moves his hands like he's playing an instrument), Adie was jumping up and down, and little Alex was sitting on Jeff's knee wiggling. It really was cute. I hope I never forget that night!
Tomorrow night, we are going to sing the birthday song to both boys (Wednesdays are too hectic) and then give Jo his birthday present. We've had it for a while and I'm so excited that we finally get to give it to him! I can't wait to see his face when he sees his very first guitar! Santa gave him a keyboard and he's really had a lot of fun with it. He is so musical, I'm glad that we've been able to find some nice, affordable instruments for him! I think that he would like to have a nice collection of several instruments! (He sounds like my dad - I'll have to tell that story another time ha!)
Well, I think I've run out of time. I thought I'd get on and type as fast as I could before Alex wakes up to eat, again! And I think I hear him now.
Well, hope you are all having a nice 2008 so far!
