LSU is in the College World Series!!
This week Brookston learned to read/recognize "LSU Tigers"!
Here are a few highlights...lots of LSU included!
Our LSU baby when she turned 4 MONTHS OLD!! (Monday)
Brookston playing in the bounce house
He was jumping and thrashing around so much, his arms are a blur in this picture!
Kaisley really wasn't too impressed with swimming...we'll try again another day!

One of our friend's inlaws/parents live up there and well, we went to visit! Thanks Papa and Yaya for a great weekend!
So many highlights from the weekend:
Playing on the tractors
Paddle boat with daddy - Yes, that is a pink life jacket
Swimming - Daddy said real men wear pink!!! ;)
Above is Brookston fishing in June, 2009
Here he was fishing on the same peir almost exactly 2 years earlier!
Brookston caught his first fish...HE actually caught it!
However, the excitement of seeing the fish quickly turned into an upset toddler...
Playing fetch with Molly
And the weekend finished up with a water birthday party:
(Don't miss below, I added 2 other posts today!)
It was a 2-3 year old class, so I believe he was the youngest..but he did GREAT! He did pout just about every day I left him, but they said he was fine the entire time and did all of the crafts, the music, and so on! Yay!!!
Here are a couple of the pictures they sent home on Friday:
Then on Friday, he came home with a bag of goodies.

But a posed pictures of a 3 month old and a 2 year old??? Haha! Yeah right! I thought oh how cute is this...I ended up dressing both kids in orange today and thought it was the perfect time to try siblings pictures....um, no!
In other news...
Brookston is starting to self potty train! For maybe 3-4 weeks now, he'll ask to go sit on the potty at EVERY diaper change. It started with him just sitting on it and 10 seconds later, nothing, but he'd say "all done!" Which was fine...we certainly didn't expect anything at just 2 years old, being that everyone says boys are harder and take longer.
But maybe a week into it, he went a couple times here and there. And now in the last week or so, he goes EVERY time he sits down! He is NOT holding his bladder between potty visits though, which is totally fine, we aren't doing anything at this point, but he's so interested in the potty, you'd think this was perfect timing!
EXCEPT, 4 weeks from today I am traveling alone with both kids. Picture just me with 2 kids on a plane with a newly potty trained toddler...uh....no! It's not gonna happen.
So I hope I'm not missing my window here! We are going to wait until next month!!!
In Kaisley's world....
She's becoming more and more vocal, laughs included. How stinking cute are baby laughs...unfortunately they usually end in the hiccups! Poor thing! I almost feel guilty when I get her all happy and excited...but I can't resist those baby laughs.
Just for a little fun, here is Kaisley (3 1/2 months)
And here was Brookston (4 months)
Shirts were given to us by the hospital...Back to Sleep (SIDS prevention)! :) :)
Oh...and HELLO ROLLS!!!!
If you could only see those thighs too! You'd wanna pinch 'em! :)

Kaisley vs the camera
Brookston loves this tunnel
It comes in this nice little carrying case with it all scrunched up
But he knows how to unzip, undo, and open it!
Swimming at a friend's pool
Kaisley after a nice nap in HER crib!
Now that Brookston is in his big boy room, Kaisley has her own room!
Our update after last week:
The floors have been saved, however we still have concrete in our living room.
It may be a while until the flooring is put back down...it's a PAIN!
The sink is fixed...we found a handyman to come to our rescue!
My root canal was a breeze.
However about 36 hours AFTER the root canal I was having a bunch of pain for about 48 hours.
I think I forgot to "take it easy" and I was just treating it like normal, eating and so on.
Or maybe it was the infection...I have no idea.
All I know now is, it's fine, yeah!
