A Baby is a Baby.. even if they are Five

This is my baby #5… and today he turns 5.  I can hardly believe

where the time has gone.   It just seems like yesterday I had him.

Here’s #3 holding #5 when he was just a few days old…

We think he’s pretty cute.. (and animated)

He’s not ashamed to play with American Girl Dolls.  Here he’s

yelling at #3’s doll and telling her to “close your eyes!”

He loves to model with eBay Stuff…

Sometimes he get’s in trouble.. and has to go to time out.

(yes I have put money away for therapy)

Do you recognize the blue dude?  That’s Stitch from “Lelo and Stitch”.  #5 likes to

call Stitch his “baby”.

Here he got away from me at City Hall and I found him pretending

he was the mayor… Which was not nearly as scary as this..

I lost him at the County Fair!  Read about that HERE.

Someday I’ll tell you the story about #5 and his hair…

You see.. I just couldn’t cut it.. and didn’t until he was over

3 years old.. He’s modeling the “Sanjay Ponyhawk” here.

Holy Smokes… I love a baby in nothing but a diaper…

There is something about it that makes me happy.

This kid didn’t like clothes so he pretty much looked

like this all the time.

Look.. he’s bored with my homage to him…

Happy Birthday #5! We love you!

American Girl Dolls Don’t Do What They Are Told.

Sometimes I’m amazed at what #5 does when he thinks no one is looking. He’s a really good kid with a HUGE imagination. I’m not sure where it got it from, it had to be from his father. I think The Man is holding out on me..

#3 left her American Girl doll sitting in the family room unsupervised. #5 decided

this was a perfect time to have a conversation with her. What do you think he’s saying to her?

He looks like he’s really chatting, but he was actually yelling..

“Hey! Close your eyes! Don’t look at me!”

It only got louder.. “HEY DOLL! CLOSE YOUR EYES!”

I guess if she won’t do what you tell her to.. do it for her.

Do Children Shop for Items on eBay?

If you follow my blog you know I like to pick 5 things I want on Etsy or eBay.. but today I thought I would pick out the 5 things my kids want on eBay. I think you just might be surprised at their choices, or you might realize how spending their formative years with me has warped them. I knew The Man should have been a stay at home dad…

#1’s Selection…

Glassactcc Focal Bead. This bead is called Witch Crash.

#1 loves lampwork or hand made glass beads. She wanted

a Halloween or Twilight set. Sadly there were none listed on eBay today 🙁

#2’s Selection..

Uniden BCD996XT Digital Mobile Scanner with 25,000 Channels and GPS Support.

I have no idea why #2 wants a Police scanner.. but I’m pretty sure it will only add to his


#3’s Selection…

Huge Lot of American Girl Doll Clothes. #3 LOVES her American Girl Doll.

I’m pretty sure I would have wanted one when I was her age too.

#4’s Selection:

#4 would love a remote control Helicopter..

I’m sure he’ll put an eye out with it.

#5’s Selection:

#5 Wants this Ben 10 watch..

He love’s this show.. When I go to Target he

reminds me I need to get him one.
