Outside Playing

Seriously, I don't know if you guys know how bad it is at our house.  He wants to be outside from the minute we get home until the minute he goes "night, night" (one of the words he says that I actually understand).  We went out yesterday and I took my camera. 

Beware - picture overload...

Okay, somebody tell me when he got so big.  Doesn't he look like a grown-up walking down the street??

This little game was fun for a LONG time.  He would sit on the curb and then lean himself backwards until he hit the grass.  Fun for Dex... confusing for Momma as to why it was so entertaining...

My grassy boy... I've been trying to teach him that it's okay not to wipe his hands every time he touches the ground.  This picture makes me proud   :) 

Cutie boy.

Must Play Outside

Not that I can blame him.  He wants to play outside.  Always.  And if he can't, he cries.  By the back door.  Looking pitifully cute.  Until I finally take him to swing  :)

Game #4 - TCU vs SMU

I can't believe there have already been 3 games... I think this season is going to fly by, and I'm none to happy about that!!  We'll be in Dallas this week, hopefully outnumbering the SMU crowd!  Everybody wear purple tomorrow!!!  :)

** Not in love with the Friday night game... me & Dex had to do a quick photo shoot tonight when I realized I wouldn't have a single minute tomorrow to do it before the game!

He reminds me of a grumpy old man in this picture.

My Piglet

Coming home from Avaree's 1 year birthday party last night...  he got some Puffs in his "goody bag" and this is what he looked like when we got home.

Game #3 - TCU vs Baylor

Cannot believe I'm missing this game!!  Go Frogs!!!!

We went to the park to take some pictures for this week's game, and first he ran from me....

And then he hid....

*sigh*  it's going to be a hard season for the blog!!!  Anyone have any ideas of how to strap down an almost - 2 year old for a few candids??  :)

If you've been around Dex at all in the last few weeks, you'll know that he loves lights.  LOVES.  Every one he sees, he'll point to it, say "light" (dite), and want to turn it on and off.  and on and off.  and on and off.  You get the point. 

Well, it's kind of a pain for the adults around him, because we have to hold him for him to "play" with the switches.  Daddy Doug to the rescue!!  He taught Dex how to turn lights on and off via lamps!  Genius.  Now he can stand on our couch and turn the lamps on and off all he wants and we can just sit back and watch!

 *as always, clothing appears optional at our house...

Dex's Vacation

As you may be able to tell from my lack of posting, Dex has been away for the past week or so...But don't feel sorry for him, he's been having a grand ol' time  :)

Whenever Dex is at Pop & Emi's I get periodic picture texts from my mom and dad.  Here are a few!  (in the order received)

Good morning!

Anyone think this shirt might be a tad big??  Anyone?...

Apparently he now loves Mr. Wolf.

He also loves tipping over the rocking horse (when he's not standing on top of it) and sitting on it sideways...

'Getting ready for church'  Little boy, big tub :)

I'm not even sure Pop knows how many times they rode that fourwheeler.  A. LOT.

Oh, lordy...he can now escape!

Dex showing his skills with the wrench.  Big help fixing the swing.

Grocery shopping.  He insists on pushing the cart.  In case you couldn't guess, this doesn't help the speed of the shopping trip. 

'Dex found a new button to push.'

These are my dad's pictures...Dex & Emi swinging. 

This was his fifth (?) ride the day he was supposed to come back.  Gotta get as many in as they can!!  Luckily he can drive himself now  :)

What did people do before cell phones and instant pictures??!  haha!  My, we are spoiled, but I like it!

Game #1 - TCU vs Oregon State

Here we go again, folks!!!  Another TCU season...Go Frogs!  The weather is perfect, it feels absolutely AMAZING outside, I get to spend my afternoon at Cowboy Stadium watching the first football game of the year... it doesn't get much better than that!  Look for us, if you watch the game on ESPN tonight.  We'll be the ones in purple!

(Do you notice that he is looking everywhere BUT at me?!)
