Five Alive!

Posted by KK on Monday, 27 August, 2007

What’s a mom to do when the middle babe turns five and it truly seems like yesterday he was crawling into my bed early in the morning to nurse himself back to sleep. He’s our little sprout, the one who has grown up without us knowing. His dark eyes hide little and his heart is so soft. He will attempt to fly off the roof like a superhero but cry with his mommy when he talks about growing up and moving out of our house. What a sweet angel. His 5th birthday party was at a gymnasium in Chattanooga. He didn’t stand still for more than a split second and if so it was only to scan to room for the next mountain to climb. What fun he had! Most if not all of the pictures were blurry because the action setting on my camera wasn’t advanced enough to keep up with him.

 He puts his pencil behind his ear like “the guys at Cinco De Mayo do”…he says. Ha!

Wheat is hard at work making some very critical decisions…

The Big “K”!

Lake is all smiles with his math. He is soooo big, you know, with his numbers and his mini pencil!! He is a first class Kindergartener and there isn’t a soul on our street who doesn’t know this!

  So after several colds and stomach bugs we finally decided we all felt up to starting school today! We began with math and were having so much fun it’s the only subject we did all morning. Wheat is now in first grade. He is showing me the six hundred and sixty six people who live in the houses on decimal street. Such an evil genius!! Ha! Must be nice to do math in your underwear!!

Captain River Sol has turned 2…a couple of weeks ago…but nonetheless entered into his new world of all things “big boy”! He is quite the comedian here wearing a pair of extremely undersized opticals from Mr. Potato Head purposely since, you cannot see it in the pic, but he is looking at a book. An intelligent comedian! Ha! He also, since the title of our blog is “The Bailey Brag”, decided a couple of weeks before his birthday to potty train himself and is now in “big undies” full time. No phone calls or e-mails, please, as I had absolutely NOTHING to do with this so I cannot offer up a bit of advice as to how this happened. He just apparently decided he was too good to let his brother’s have one up on him so he took the plunge and hasn’t turned back. I don’t quite know what to do without having a load of cloth diapers to wash every other day. It is still very surreal to me at this point so we are keeping it on the down low…well, until now I guess since I have posted it here. So, enter a new chapter in mine and Jason’s lives as well not being pregnant, nursing a child or diapering a child for the first time in over 7 years…wow…typing that was strange.

She’s HERE!!
