Special Time With Dad!

My dad and I went to Wal-Mart tonight. I had to get pullups and facewash, and he had to get a fish for the church library. We took the fish to the church and checked the big aquarium first. It was great! He loves those fish! He takes such good care of them...putting his own hands in there to dig out the yucky food. IT's so cute how he is. Then, we went to the library to deliver the Beta to his new home. We got him in there and he was really a beauty! I mean, he was "strutting his stuff" as my dad said. It was great! I love spending moments like that with my dad. They are so special. I would recommend it to all of you. Make a special call, or visit to say hi to your dad! I know it will mean something to him!

One More Thing...

...I forgot to mention that Colton can count to 13 now!!! He's a Genius!!! Probably the smartest kid since when I was his age!!!! jk Nah, for real, he is super smart. It's great! My plan is for him to be really smart, but also an athlete. I don't want him to be the "nerdy smart guy" or the "dumb jock" so he will be the "quarterback of the football team, homecoming king, president of the senior class and Valedictorian"!! I'm pretty sure he can handle it! he's got about 16 years to get ready for it! Right now he's counting the years...I guess he thinks it will only take him 13 years! He already knows he's smart! Ok, enough from the bragging mother!!! (what am I going to do when I have more children?!?! I will end up spending every ounce of my being just being proud of my kids!! But, doesn't every parent wish the best for their kids and praise their good works and accomplishments? I'm just starting early!)

Ok, I need to get some sleep! Wow, two blogs in one night! That has got to be a record for me! I hope you guys are writing this down! Good Night! ;)

Potter Update!

Well, it's that time again!!! Time for my "MONTHLY" update! Each time I update, I say I will get better about updating, but I don't! So, this time I'm not going to make any promises!!!

As you all know it is now September! Crazy, I know! It seems like just yesterday Lindsay was calling me to tell me she was pregnant, and that was in January!!!! WOW How time flies! Now, she is just a few short weeks away from having her little baby girl...who by the way is nameless to all of us!!! But, I won't even go into that!!! I am so excited for Lin! She will be a wonderful little mommy! It will be fun to share mommy time with her! (in all of my spare time!!! I will find time, I promise!!)

It's also getting nearer my SeaStar, Rachel's, time to have her baby. Less than 2 months and she will also be able to hold her little boy in her arms! I am so excited about being an AUNT!!! I think I will be a good one. At least I will try. I am enjoying my aunt-duties so far! Getting to throw both Rachel and Lindsay a baby shower has been so much fun to plan, and have. Rachel's shower is this coming up weekend...and let me tell you, we have lots of fun things planned! It will be a lot of fun...and she will get lots of nice stuff! I can't wait!!!

Colton is talking like a maniac. He loves his aunts, and wants to play with them, or their boyfriends all the time. He calls Blake, Beka's boyfriend, by his name. It's so cute. I don't think he has quite learned Jarod's or Derek's name fully, but he is working on it. Anyway, he and Blake have such a great time together every time Blake comes over. It is so cute! Colton is all into saying sentences and stuff. He says " 'mon Geka" (that means come on beka) and " 'mon Noonee" (that's susanna). He also says "my mommy" or "my mimi" or "my papa"!! I love it. He is such a cuddle bug!

Today we got his hair cut. He did much better than the last two haircuts! I did bribe him with a whole ziplock bag of grapes! That kept his attention almost the whole time! He's also been a bit of a night owl. Staying up later than usual, and taking shorter naps. i don't mind him staying up later, but the shorter naps have GOT TO GO!!! We all need our alone time! So, he needs to get back on schedule, as far as naps are concerned!

Well, that's it for now. It was a long blog. I'm sure you all are saying "how about a bunch of shorter blogs, instead of one huge blog once a month". Yeah! Yeah! We all have dreams and high hopes...but not all come true!! ;)

Anyways, I will post again soon!!! (notice I didn't say sonner than last time, or closer together! I don't want to get any hopes up!!) Hope you all have a great day, week, and month!
