15 month old Landon likes to climb into his great-grandmother's rocking chair to read. He started doing this all on his own. The rocking chair originally belonged to Landon's father's father's mother, otherwise known as his great-grandmother Alma Danz (1897-1973) when she was a little girl.


The rocking chair has become Landon's personal reading chair. He picks out a book, climbs in, usually orients the book properly, turns the pages, and then with great emotion grunts out the dialog.

None of our kids are performers and Landon absolutely refused to climb into his chair on cue. But, here is video that should give you a general idea of just how cute the little guy is in his reading chair. (Vimeo version after the jump.)

Today is Drew's first day of first grade. It will be a rough one-day week. It was so humid out that most of the photos were too blurry to use. The house-temp camera immediately fogged up when exposed to the humid muggy morning air.


All ready to walk to school. Everyday Will and Landon trudge along with Drew and Mama to and from Drew's school without complaint.

Drew's Summer Reading


The Tulsa City-County Library had a program this summer that asked kids to read 12 books and visit the library four times for a coupon book reward. For those reading an additional eight books, they would receive a medal and another prize. Hearing the conditions, Drew immediately set his goal at 100 books!


After Drew read each book, it was placed between the stair rails and the collection quickly progressed up the stairs. By the end of summer, Drew had read a total of 152 books! I think he's prepared for first grade.

(I couldn't decide which picture to lead this post with, the top is more artsy but doesn't show the number of books as well. Then I remembered, I don't have to decide. So, after the jump another picture of the books Drew read.)

Eye Grow - Haircut


Will and Drew have been caring for their Eye Grows lately and today it was time for a haircut.


Will carefully giving his Eye Grow a trim.


Haircut complete. Drew decided to let his continue growing in order to see what would happen. After all, you always have to have a control group.

Family Photos 2010


Earlier this year in May, we had our formal family photos taken at Woodward Park by a friend of Mary's, Carrie Richardson Fry of Carrie R. Richardson Photography. From that session, we got one of the best pictures of the boys to date: Will (3), Drew (6) and Landon (13 months). I couldn't be more proud.


It seems almost impossible with three boys the ages of ours to get a photo where everyone is looking at the camera with a really great expression. While this photo is not perfect, it might be the best overall picture of our family. There are three more after the jump to show how hard it is to pick out the "best" one.

Landon recently started feeding himself.


Landon's new nemesis...his spoon.


Open mouth and...it usually goes in.


I shall conquer you spoon! After the jump...the end of the meal.


All done.


Oh yeah, this was easier than I thought it would be.


I finished feeding myself Mama.


Another milestone accomplished!

Backyard Pictures


I was home early today and it was really nice outside so I though I'd take the boys out in the backyard for some pictures. This one came out pretty good, if not a little boring.


To create a more interesting picture, I told the boys...who already weren't too excited about taking pictures...to turn toward each other and smile. And, this is what I got. Truly, a couple of boys. The photo taking went downhill from there.
