Happy Birthday, Alex!

Tomorrow (June 27th) is my nephew's birthday. I met Alex a few months before he turned a year old and I have been blessed to watch him grow. I knew early on that he was going to have above average intelligence. Once we were playing outside and I said, "Isn't it fun to play in the dirt?" He quickly corrected me by saying, "It's sand, Jodi." I don't think he was even 2 years old at the time. He was the ring bearer in our wedding and loves to come visit our house. At first, it was because of the guinea pigs, then the air hockey table, then the candy claw and now? Video games, of course.
Ryan and Alex. . .my how they've changed.
Kim wasn't the only one preparing for Katie's birth (sorry, I couldn't resist this picture.)

He's just an all around great guy

with Ryan's love of Halloween

and video games.

Happy 8th Birthday! We hope it's the best ever!!

Hey Jodi, we went to the eye doctor today and we have to start patching Lindy's eye for 2 hours each day. We took the patch off for the first time today and it was horrible. Can you tell me what you have found to work the best for getting the patch off? Where do you get the cute patches with designs on them? I just found plain ones at Walmart. Thanks, Jamie

Hi Jamie. . you can dab a bit of Maalox around the eye before you put the patch on. I've kind of stopped doing this because Olivia has gotten really good at peeling the patch off. So, when the time comes to take it off, she's already half way there. I still have the plain designs, but you can buy the cute patches at:

Hope that helps!
