Frank, Tea Parties, Tummy Time and Teeth!

FIRST…thank you for all you INCREDIBLE families who commented on my last post about adopting first!!! I encourage you to go check out the comments and amazing blogs of these families! Be encouraged as they follow the Lord in adopting first!!! And absolutely…I think our next adoption post needs to be about families who started over;). Love the teenager who responded that they WISH their parents would start over:).

OK…so some catchin’ up at the Young house. ALL of this happened JUST yesterday! First, I have to blog FRANK! Many of my friends and blog readers have just fallen in love with our Frank. AND what’s NOT to love about a little man with a bald head and lots of personality?! So…I need to catch you up:). He has started saying a FEW words. No, we aren’t getting the normal: please, truck, etc. Instead we are getting what we will call “only Frank” words like: iron, I-ey (isaac), and dough-naw (our personal favorite which means: doughnut). Frank is starting to really show so much of his heart as he is playing so well with BOTH the big kids and Isaac. We are so proud of him!!! Here are a few picture of Frank that I snagged yesterday showing that personality that we have all grown to adore…

This boy is ALL Young…but the ONE thing he DOES have of mine–are my eyes…

I heart window pictures…

Laney was kind enough to invite Frank to her tea party (he normally makes a MESS so he isn’t always invited…but he made the invite list and who could resist snagging these…but you CAN see why he might annoy a big sister who takes tea parties VERY seriously…)

I love seeing these 3 finally play together…it won’t be long before Isaaac is big enough to join them…

And as THEY had tea party fun…Isaac Temesgen had a work out…TUMMY TIME!

And one thing I also love about Frank right now–is how he ALREADY looks out for his little brother. He was running back and forth from the tea party BACK to tummy time to make sure his I-EY was ok! PRECIOUS!

I tossed them all in a chair and TRIED to grab a shot of all 4…but of course that is not going to work…but can’t say I didn’t try:)

AND TO COMPLETE YESTERDAY’S EXCITEMENT…Parker FINALLY lost that tooth LAST NIGHT!!! AND I just happened to have my Flip close by and caught the ACTUAL tooth pulling on video!!! Please ignore our crazy squealling over a pulled tooth!

OK…you remember that excitement Parker had?! And all that “COOL!” screaming?! Well…it was COOL…UNTIL he ran to the mirror and saw blood. THEN…it was not so cool!

BUT…nothing a big Sonic slushy wouldn’t cure;). Thanks Laurie for the yummy slushy!

Our FIRST toothless grin at the Young house!

And thankfully Daddy had just gotten home from work to see it!

And that’s all folks! We had a really fun playdate today with the Carley family…SO I can’t wait to share pictures of our fun little ones finally meeting one another in a post this weekend!!! Hope you all have a GREAT weekend! We’re off to “meet-and-greet” Parker and Laney’s teachers!

So cute!!! Love that little Frank! Our little monkey didn’t seem to talk FOREVER…but finally we’re getting hilarious little sayings out of him too….I really should blog those before I forget =) Picture of Isaac and Frank is AWESOME…and I love the feetsies of all four…and I’m super jealous of your house BTW 😉

Parker…you are Evangeline’s hero! She has watched you pull your tooth over and over.She wants to loose a tooth SO BADLY! Yup…there she is now…trying to wiggle one loose:)

Frank is looking so much like Parker to me in these pictures! So sweet!

Ha! That is the SAME tooth that my Cheru just lost yesterday! It was his first tooth, too!

we had so much fun yesterday…look forward to many more morning just like it (minus the big kids).

thanks so much for having us over…and for the donuts 🙂

Oh, there’s nothing like the early talking of a toddler. My 1 yr olds favorite words until recently were trash and bulb (meaning light bulb), and he always said them with such gusto and twang it would crack us up. Months later, he is still obsessed with all things trash related and changing light bulbs (too bad we have so many compact flourescents).
Your kids are too cute – great pics.
