Happy 21 Months, Rhys!!!

That would be the choice adjective to describe this season of Rhys' life. We love it! He's wonderful entertainment, and I tell Russell that he gets his "spice of life" from his Mama! :) He keeps life interesting 'round here!!
We spend lots of our days outside on our back deck. Rhys likes anything with wheels!
Nap times are nice and long these days, as I let him run and run and run, wearing his little self out! :)
Rhys enjoys driving his $3 four-wheeler...a garage-sale find our first weekend in Missouri! It's the little {and CHEAP!!!} things they love the most, huh???? :)
We just had our first fire-pit fire of the season. Sadly, we had no smore fixins, but I hit the grocery the next day, and we're set for the next fire! Rhys was enthralled with the smoke here... Don't you just love that curious expression (mouth opened)??? :)
And he's just gotten so interested in READING! We'll all be sitting in the family room at night, or I might be preparing something in the kitchen, and he just puts a book on the floor and starts looking through it on his own! I'm just AMAZED with God's workmanship in us!! Children are amazing little creations!!
Rhys, we LOVE LOVE LOVE exactly who you are...every little bitty ounce of you!!! We are excited to share in and spend our lives with you!!! You are a wonderful boy and son to Daddy and Mommy, and you love your baby brother so well!!! We are thankful for you and look forward to MANY more months and years with you!!!

Happy 21 months today, son!!

Love, Daddy & Mommy :)

Back & Back to No Good!! :)

We're back to the south!!! We've been back for a couple of weeks, settling in, still unpacking, still organizing...seems like it's taking longer than it should??? :)

But we're having fun in the process! Lots of fun outdoor time in the cooler weather...
Enjoying swing & Daddy time!!
You think this big boy enjoys swinging? I'd say so. :) Oh, that precious smile!!!
Enjoying walks with our great neighbors!! :)
And play dates! :)
Rhys is going to be driving a Jeep and riding a bike in no time! Thanks, guys!!
And when we're not outside, Rhys wants to be outside!! :)
Enjoying great time with Aunt Tami, who came to visit for a FUN weekend!!
Rhys is sporting a hanger on his head, here. :) Aunt Tami called him "Hanger Head." :) Ha!
And this morning tops it all! I was preparing a bath for Caleb in his infant tub, stepped across the hall just to take Caleb out of his onesie and diaper, and, as I heard water splashing in the bathroom, I said to myself, "You've got to be kidding." I glanced into the bathroom, and I had to grab my camera...this is what I found! An inquisitive little guy in his pj's AND a POOPY diaper sitting in the infant tub full of water. :)
Close up of wet pj's. :)
So, I just picked Rhys up, put him in the big tub and let him 'help' me bathe his little brother. Rhys was next in line for a bath. :)
Hence, the blog post title, "Back & Back to No Good!!" That we are!
