Wow we had rain! M was over at a friends house and my friend called and said she was going to keep her until the tornado warning passed. I had no idea but the rain was dropping buckets full of water and the wind was whipping. I was grateful she was safe. A was very concerned and wanted me to check out online "What to do if you are sucked into a tornado?" M came back from her puddle jumping carrying her "raining boots" on a stick. Justin and I both just shook our heads and said "There's only one M!"

Yep he is half way up the stairs before I realized what he was doing. "Look at me Mom! Try and catch me if I can." I have gone by my philosophy that once they can crawl teach them how to go up and down the stairs....but with the other helpers I fear I have no choice but to cave and buy gates. Despite L's innocent face he is going to be a messmaker. I can tell.

Here is my little buddy, Dayne! You can see his cute twin sister too. This picture was taken on Memorial Day this year. He had been released from the hospital with inconclusive results as to why he was so sick. They were hoping it was a one time thing. He did well for a little bit and then on the 4th of July he got really sick again and admitted to the hospital the day after that. He possibly has a rare immune/blood disorder. His family is all being tested for a match for a bone marrow transplant. My heartaches for him and for his family during this difficult time. Please add the Belau family to your prayers! Our church is having a fast for him and his family tomorrow.

I had taken L out of the exersaucer but he still had some cereal left on the tray. He crawled over and pulled up to his knees and then tilted the exersaucer so he could see the cereal. It is going by to fast. He also climbed up our first stair today. I thought I could hold off on buying a gate but I guess not. I have a debate with that. I usually don't have a gate, I just teach the kids to master the stairs right away, I am a little more concerned with the 3rd kid as there are others who will "help" him.

They are tomato plants. Funny thing is I didn't plant any outside the big pots. So they sprouted from last years rotten tomatoes that Justin threw behind the pots. There are several plants. I don't know if they will produce but it looks hopeful. Now that the weeds are mostly gone and the big pots moved ....please more tomatoes. I want lots of Justin salsa this summer. We couldn't have done this on purpose and had it work. Now I just need to cage them hopefully someone will still have them. I don't want to have to stake them.
