|Nico peed on me in this shot...|
|Profiles in mischief making|
|Just getting dressed...no big ordeal, right?|
|Kids not looking and Nico is doing Popeye face|
|Still doing Popeye, Mario trying to help|
|And we are just about done on the stairs...|
|He couldn't give one of his million dollar grins here? Nope. Beautiful boy though, huh?|
|Can you guess what he is asking for here?|
|This would be adorable but...not going on the Christmas card.|
|This one won't be either...but you can definitely see where Xavi gets his big mouth.|
|No smile, hands in mouth, desperately waving to mom...sigh, we got the shot anyway. See above..Papa and his boys!|
|This would have been a great shot without little monkey hands in the background. Still precious.|
|Absolutely nothing wrong here...beautiful man with beautiful baby.|

And behind the front door...getting some sun?
But it was even more fun to immediately dismantle and spread all over...Now why is it ok to mess these up but not his trains? Hmmmm...
Check out this video. 18 month old Xavi is lining up his balls as he practices kicking against the couch. Amazing, right? Or is that just the mama talking?
I've been told that this specificity, this lining up of his toys is a sign of significant intelligence. Well, of course! I could have told you that. (hee hee) What I see is a little boy who knows what he wants and mostly he wants things in order. Is this an early sign of a perfectionist in training? Lord, I hope not! I do, however, know that there will be a few days ahead where I will hear from the boys' bedroom "MOM! Nico is messing up my stuff!"

Today was one of those days. It all started at 3:50am and just finished around 9:35pm...just a few moments ago, there was a small possibility that I was going to murder the dog if he woke up the baby after all today had to offer. Luckily for him, Nico settled back in. I am going to just sit here thinking happy thoughts and drinking tea while I pretend that it is scotch. All I can say is soooo much poop and sooo many tantrums today...oh and did I mention my memory is gone? So if I forget your name next time we talk, woman who birthed me (mom)...keep in mind that I probably don't remember my own at this point.
I need a bit of help so I'm posting some cute, fun memories for today.
Hope they make you laugh too. Hope you didn't need them as much as I do.

We miss you and can't wait til next time. Here's some shots from our visit:
|Xavi found Lori's necklace and kept putting it on. I think it goes perfectly with his outfit.|
|We watched this digger while out on a walk.|
|he got tired of walking and reached up to her..she didn't hesitate.|
|Does Auntie Lori need the pacifier or was it Nico?|
|Decorating brother is such fun...|
|Our flower child|
|Xavi's new special bed when we have guests...reading Llama Llama while he jumps around.|
|Dancing over brother, while nude...I wasn't sure Nico would appreciate the view|
|And of course, we didn't take a photo together until she was leaving...and we weren't looking our best. Oh well.|
See you soon dear friend.
