Singing and "More Weee"

Some notes before you watch this video:
*  Dex -thinks- he can jump.  We are working on it...
*  He LOVES to watch himself on video.  He especially loves for me to turn the monitor around on the video camera so he can watch himself in action.  Commence the singing and being silly.
*  He is learning "Jesus Loves Me."  He has a long way to go :)  BUT I can still tell what he's singing when I hear him try!
*  "Weeee-ing" has turned into meaning swinging, sliding, OR me twirling him in circles by the arms and then us both eventually falling down to the ground.  We do the last one in our front yard.   He always comes back and asks for "more weee" and it is one of the cutest things I think he says :)

Boys = Dirt

I may have had my doubts when Dex would touch the ground and come over to me, hold out his hand with a tiny speck of dirt on it, and say "uh-oh!"... or when I'd try to lay him on the grass with me to look at the sky, and he would refuse to touch his head to the ground... but never fear, he is actually a full-fledged BOY.  He was throwing and kicking dirt EVERYWHERE tonight.  And rolling in the grass like a puppy dog. 

I love nights like this... warm weather, kid playing in the dirt pile and looking at worms, momma and daddy sitting in the lounge chairs on the front porch, making fun of the teenagers next door who think they are sooooo cool, *knowing you don't have to go to work in the morning*... it just makes my heart scream PERFECT!

I'll try to post more pictures later!

I went and picked up Dex from my parents today.  Here's what greeted me... the cutest little Irish boy ever :)



Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone!!!

March for Babies

This may be the longest I've gone without a post, so for that I apologize :)  But it's been a crazy couple weeks around the O'Neal house.  Dex got sick AGAIN.  He woke up at about 10:00 pm one night with a croup-y cough and he couldn't breathe, so I basically sat in the rocking chair with him all night.  It was terrible.  We got him in to the doctor the next day, and it actually wasn't croup, it was an asthma attack, brought on by some sort of virus.  Awesome.  But we've been doing steroids and regular breathing treatments and he's back to his old self.  He's with my parents in the country for most of this week, and I'm sure he's not getting spoiled at all. 

Now, on to the main reason I'm posting... I talked about doing the March for Babies some time ago, and it has completely snuck up on me!  I debated on whether to go through with it, but I decided that even though I only have a month to train, I needed to make the commitment and go.  It's something I've wanted to do every year.  So Dex and I will be running (well, Dex = riding in the stroller) on April 16th in Dallas.  I'd love for more people to do it with me!  Come join my team!  You can find my page here:

If you aren't able to run, I would really appreciate any donation you can make!  The money we raise will support March of Dimes research and programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. And it will be used to bring comfort and information to families with a baby in newborn intensive care.

Hope to see some of you there!  I'll give more information as it gets closer, if anyone signs up :)  Might even have Mills Impressions make t-shirts??  (I haven't even asked them yet!  haha!)

And since there must be a picture in the post...


This is in Bass Pro.  Sean has taken him before, but this was my first time to be with them.  I guess I didn't realize how great that place is for little kids! :)

More Video - Talking

Here's another video of Dex saying some of his words.  After watching it, I think he may not be quite as clear in his pronunciation as I think he is :)  It's still cute, though.
