First soccer game

A couple weeks ago -- It was drizzly and chilly, but we sure had fun watching Timmy play in his first soccer game. It's really cute watching all those little guys. Tim is enjoying soccer, but like a lot of kids his age he lacks a little in focus. It's really humorous watching him spinning and dancing

More Joseph

He had his one-year appointment today. We switched doctors to Ben's practice. Much closer to home and discounted co-pays. Can't beat that. They figure he's measuring in the 25th percentile. Definitely my little shrimp.

We took these pictures at a little birthday party we had for him last Sunday. Joseph has a "thing" for crochet. My mom made him a couple of mini-blankets that he immediately latched on to.

Birthday boy!

Little Joseph's first birthday was today -- the year sure went by fast!

I felt like a slacker mom today because I didn't make a big enough deal about the day. We're going to have cake tomorrow with his grandma and tonight we went to Pizza Hut for dinner and presents. Believe it or not, I wanted to keep things simple on purpose. It's all about keeping my sanity. Anyway, he loves pizza.

The other day I wondered what life would be like if he was our first baby. I decided that life would be a little boring because he's just not very demanding. And I also told Ben that "we would think we were really good parents." He's that sweet.

Free chicken!

Anyone else take advantage of the free chicken on Labor Day? Chick-Fil-A offered free chicken if you came in with a team logo shirt on. I tracked down all of our little Redskin shirts and we had a good time eating our free chicken sandwiches. Each of the kids ate all their chicken. I told Carolina that if we cut up the chicken, it was just like chicken nuggets. You know what? It really is -- except a WHOLE LOT MORE PIECES!! We've determined that's what we're going to start doing. I wonder if they'll let us order one without a bun?

Also -- we live in serious Ravens country, so it was kind of funny when four out of five of us (Ben had a Maryland shirt on) had Redskins on. Despite the proximity, they are not really rivals, but it was still fun.

(sorry for the full mouths -- best I could do, they were really hungry!)
