He seems so excited and I think he even blew the candles out himself. Not to sure if he made any wishes.

The monkey boy is Gabriel, she is the son of Josh's younger sister, Sara. Seemed like everyone had a good time at the party. The weather was better than expected and a few kids were brave enough to get into the pool.

Just some pics

We spent a little time outside last night and i managed to snap some pics in between smacking mosquitos and scratching my new bug bites! Although the weather is getting much cooler the bugs here are still in full force. The picture of the car is Josh's new ride and the white magnets are advertising for his new website-jcsiding.com-he's big time now! I've got a big girls night tonight. Two of my close girlfriends and myself all have birthdays within a week of each other so we are all going out to celebrate, while the daddys have baby duty. This week ought to be busy getting ready for Brant's big monkey birthday. Susan-you will have to check out these monkey face cupcakes that I am gonna attempt to make, so stay tuned.

Brant is trying to talk!!

He will be turning 2 on Sept. 27 and his vocabulary is still so limited. Most everything is GA-GAAA but the way he says it I think he thinks he is actually saying something. He had a very exciting day yesterday watching the Redskins win their home opener-he would even clap (imitating me of course, not his dad). Things are getting back to normal at school. The students are starting to show their true colors but I have really enjoyed competing with them in our annual badminton tourney (yeah-I know I work too hard!!)

Looks like I was successful on my first try. Now the goal is to keep it updated. This was the goal while Josh was away at a builders convention in baltimore till sat. morn. Brant goes to bed so early (7:30 p.m.) its almost like we don't even have a kid sometimes.
