June is Patrick's month

Here's a look at the best little son a Dad could ask for during the month of Father's day and his birthday.

Fixin' Stuff (no need to mention that this toy still isn't fixed... at least Dad & Son got to use TOOLS and work on a project together!)


Patrick is 27!! For those of you not nerdy enough to know, the cake is a "circuit board" with the number "27" written out in binary code. (I know, what a woman!) I always tell my wonderful man that he's a "sheek geek" -and I wouldn't have him any other way! I love that I get to spend forever with him! He's so fun, encouraging, and good! This engineer doesn't go anywhere without his pocket pc, or my heart.

Payson points out "Jesus" all the time now, and pretty much and picture at church is a picture of Him. I usually turn on "Music & the Spoken Word" Sunday morning as we get ready for church, but when Payson yelled out "Jesus" (seeing the Christus on lds.org) I got an idea to look for pictures of Jesus on YouTube. Of course, someone, somewhere has hymns to pictures of Jesus! (Who takes the time to do stuff like that? I sure appreciate it!) So this was our morning:

Yesterday, when getting Payson ready for swimming, I decided to teach Payson how to flex his muscles. (As you can see, his manly chest inspired this...) He picks up on things FAST! (BTW that picture in the back is where the whole "Jesus" thing started. Having church pictures around really is a great way to teach your child the gospel. They observe everything, and ask questions about what they see -teaching opportunities!! I need to get a temple picture or something for Payson's room, he spends a LOT of time in his crib -wish I slept that much!)

Yes, this is sideways, my bad. And don't watch the whole thing. I just wanted to show Payson's new FAVORITE thing. Jumping into the swimming pool with his floaties -let's just say, it doesn't go over well when Mommy says it is time to go home & say "bubye" to "wawa".

Payson loves his toilet, and will sit on it, and "flush" it (makes a water noise than says "all done"). Here he is NOT sitting...grrr... but pointing out all the characters. Tigger is his favorite, when he plays with his stuffed talking Tigger, he "tickles" it and mimicks the "whoo whoo whoo whoo". He is young for potty training, I know, but a Mom can have a dream!

I still feel bad that I turned off your video camera instead of hitting record while everyone was singing Happy Birthday to Patrick, but I'm going to have to start working on the teaching Charlie to flex thing because that would be so funny.

And just FYI, Picasa 3 has a feature to rotate videos and let's you trim down videos really easily if you ever want to grab just a small clip of one to post.

He is super cute! Warren and I both love the cake but what does the circuit do? hee hee Could Payson look anymore like Patrick??
