Lets just call this...

.... the month of iPhone pictures.

It's been just too hot to lug my big camera around, so I've got an update via the iphone.

Egan is a hoot. There is no doubt that he got his daddy's sense of humor. It may be only us that get some of his jokes, but to me, they are hilarious.

Egan loves a good pixar movie. While daddy was working one night, we snuggled in bed with a bowl of popcorn and watched one. He thought that was the most fun thing ever.

You are going to have to listen closely to this one, but this is just an example of egan's antics and nonstop conversation over dinner.

(Sorry, video issues, so click here to view this one...)

His normal answer to "What do you want to do today?" is "TAKE OVER THE WORLD!"

Next you will hear Blake try to get him to do the Ovaltine bit from Sinfield. He's about got it down... Then he asks, "What's Ovaltine?"

The playgroup took a trip to a local airplane museum. Egan was in airplane heaven. Here he is with Jack and a helicopter.

And here is Egan with Marshall and Hudson in front of an airplane. The boys were non-stop motion running from airplane to airplane checking them all out. The girls, on the other hand, had fun, but the boys were SO into the museum.

They even had a play area where the kids could sit in the pilot's seat! It was just the perfect outing for all these little ones on a hot summer day.

I finally got my new workstation set up! Here is Egan testing out the new chair. I think it's perfect!

The new work station also meant some fun for Egan.

Home repairs are still happening... ugh. There's this along with the toilet next to it that have needed repairs. I love the charm of our old house, but the seemlingly endless updates are not so much fun!

Blake took a trip to Joplin to help with the cleanup effort after the tornado. Here he is with his team!

While he was away, Egan and I held down the fort at home. Here's Egan one night in the bath. When asked where Daddy was, Egan's reply was always, "Taking over the world, and helping people." I'd say he was right!

... Which coincidently was the same place I saw a tiny lizard the following day. This is why having a terrior is handy. I let her know about said lizard, and she chased it down into the drain. I ran hot water down the drain and closed it. I haven't seen it since.

We had Max come to visit while my parents were out of town. Max and Maggie had fun wrestling.

Egan had fun having another puppy to rub.

We had ONE cool day! It was drizzly all morning, but we were SO happy to get outside. Egan splashed in puddles and was a big mess by the time we went inside, but it was all worth it! It has just been TOO hot to go outside lately!

This will only be funny if you have ever seen "Portlandia". Blake loves the show. One of the lines from the show is "Put a bird on it!" Egan thinks that is pretty funny, so when I asked him if he wanted to go to Freebirds for dinner, he replied...

By the way, that was a retape where I tried to get him to repeat what he said the first time. It didn't work so great, but the first time was totally unprompted.

Remember how I was talking about Egan and his "musmash"? Here he is with a little stick on one. Oh boy, talk about fun!

Now I feel all caught up. Finally!


  1. You're baaaaack! I've been missing you!

  2. I love in that first video how you drag out the turning off of the camera by getting him to say goodbye a bunch of different ways. He's so much fun!
