Tessa and AJ

Cousin Tessa is about 6 months older than AJ. While we were out for dinner the other night, she just couldn't keep her hands off of him! She loves having another baby in the family to play with!

Toy Story Mania

Toy Story has exploded in our house! Tommy has become completely obsessed with Toy Story. It all started this summer on our trip to Disney World. He had never seen the movie before, in fact, I don't even think he knew about Toy Story at that time. He was more into Peter Pan and pirates. However, he fell in love with the Toy Story ride in Magic Kingdom, so we decided to take him to meet Buzz and Woody at Hollywood Studios. It was like love at first sight. He made the big plastic Buzz get down on his knees to sign his autograph book and give him a hug. This was no easy job for Buzz considering the whole costume is completely plastic, not a lot of give in the outfit. Anyways, we all know then for Halloween he had to be Buzz. Since then, it's just snowballed into this huge obsession. For instance, everyone in our family is a Toy Story character. Tommy is Buzz, Chris is Zurg (Buzz's archenemy), I'm Jesse the cowgirl, and AJ is Woody. He has to wear the Buzz costume with jet pack all the time. We don't just walk to the bathroom anymore, we fly like Buzz while shouting "Buzz Lightyear to the rescue!" I must admit this is all rather cute. It's a neat thing for him to get into. He finally saw both movies one weekend, and just couldn't stop watching them, he loved it. For awhile, he was Toy Story's biggest fan without even seeing the movie! Anyways, here are pictures of all the Toy Story gear we have collected. Much of it from his friends for his birthday. We play with EVERYTHING on a daily basis!

Tommy as Buzz

The jetpack. And yes, it talks. And yes Tommy hasn't quite figured out
how to fit through doors with it on yet.

Tommy playing the Wii Toy Story game. He insists
on always wearing the glasses.

Toy Story sleeping bag which sometimes has to use instead
of his truck blanket.

The toys. Don't get any ideas about Buzz and Woody on the right.
They are attached to a rocket, just like in the movie. I didn't noticed
how bad that picture looked until it was already on the blog!

AJ Update

I feel like it's been awhile since I posted recent pictures of AJ. He is doing great! Just over three months now, hard to believe! We have been able to get his acid reflux under control with his new medicine just in time for him to start teething. Oh well! He usually can make it to 5AM now without waking up during the night! Yeah, sleep!! He is such a happy guy and has recently learned how to scream for joy! He loves to play on his jungle mat and reach for all the toys. He is a big flirt with the ladies of course and loves to smile at people with his eyes. He goes back to the doctor in March so we will have his latest stats then, but he continues to be a healthy boy and loves to eat! In fact, he often reaches for Tommy's food, I think one day he might get lucky!

Wake up, Tommy!

The other day when Tommy woke up from his nap, AJ and I decided to go together and get him from his room. Tommy was so happy to see his little brother and AJ loved laying in his bed with him, he was cooing the whole time! I love watching the two boys together, I can already see a strong bond between the two of them, it's so neat to watch!

It's hard to believe AJ is almost 3 months! He is really starting to show us his personality. He is a fun, lovable guy! This video proves it!

Tommy's Big Day!

Tommy turned 3 this past Tuesday and we had a very fun filled day! First, we met friends at DQ for lunch and play. Then we were off to Daddy's work. Tommy was so excited to see where Daddy works all day long. He told me later he loved the elevator rides and daddy's lucky he gets to ride them everyday! Tommy requested then that we eat dinner at Chilis. Tommy had a great third birthday!

Princess and Pirate Party!

This past weekend we celebrated Tommy and his good friend, Siena's, 3rd birthday! They had a princess and pirate party at the Curious Kids Museum in St. Joe. It was so cute to see all the little pirates and princesses running around the museum and playing! A great time was had by all!
