Growing into manhood

Joel always goes upstairs to check on the kids right before we head to bed. The boys were sound asleep. He saw something on the floor and came back down, laughing and he said to me, "You have to come here." Mikey had laid out his outfit for the next day. Now, if this isn't a well thought out outfit, I don't know what is...right down to the socks on each foot and the undies perfectly positioned in place.



Mikey just got a shaving kit, and he is shaving like a mad man! You'd think he was "Cousin It" from the Adams family with how much hair removal is going on here. I think it makes him feel manly. He was heading to bed the other night and in all seriousness he said, "Well I better shave before I go to bed." The next morning, Joel was getting ready for work. Mikey looked up at Joel with his sparkly eyes and said, "Wanna shave with me tonight, Daddy?" Joel just smiled, "Sure, buddy. I'll shave with ya." :o)

Here are a few shaving moments:



I'm loving the swipe across the chin action we got in this one.

Tell Mikey--"Way to go! He didn't even cut himself!" I wish I could shave that well. He is adorable! Looks like his outfit is ready for take-off! :)

What a cutie! I'm cracking up with the outfit though, at least he's old enough to pick out matching clothes, Isabella will pick out the craziest things. And look, he's just trying to make sure he keeps a smooth baby face for Isabella. :)

You are super mom. How in the world can you do all that you do? You are aware that there are other moms out here and you are starting to give us a bad name.
I love this site. Mom and I looked at all the pictures from the beginning. Emma in your wedding dress is by far my favorite.
Love you, Beck.
PS- I want the secret to your life!!

Mikey gets an A+ on the personal hygeine thing. WoW! Clean undies and everything.

IMPRESSIVE...yeah, he's going to be a little heart stealer when he grows up....

Actually, he's already got mine! :-D

Lizzy, bless you my dear! With comments like that, you can keep coming back. :o) And for my secret, just send a check for $19.95 and you can have my tell-all book. :o) Seriously, thank you for your sweet words, but I will tell you from my heart that I struggle with the same things that every mom on this planet struggles with. It is only through the Lord that anything good can come out of me!
