"Anyone can be a Father...

...but it takes someone special to be a daddy." Luke is a great daddy and the kids just adore him! Last night the kids got to stay up an hour past bedtime because we were having so much fun playing with them!
Daddy was hitting balls down the hallway to Joseph and while he was doing that Jacob came over and plopped down into his lap and just watched. But you have to picture this. Jacob has this thing were when he is going to sit down he walks up to the spot, turns around, and he slowly walks backward until he hits the spot, then he sits down! I think he needs one of those little beepers to tell him when he's close to his target.



I never cease to be amazed at Jacob's big eyes! What a good looking kid! Oh ya, I do good work!



Every night, if the kids are good during prayer the get a horsey ride back to bed. The kids just LOVE it! Poor daddy, I don't know if there will be room for four little bums! This is probably why whenever Jacob is on the floor Joseph jumps on him and starts yelling, "horsey ride! go horsey!" Jacob does not like it at all!



This video is from Saturday night. We were trying to put the kids to bed but they were SO wired! LOL, this video just makes me laugh! If you look real close you can see on the top of Joseph's head he has a little pony tail. He had found a hair band and brought it to me then said, "hair!" So I put it in his hair and he gets this huge smile on his face and he pats his chest and says, "me princess!" With his little lisp it just sounds SO funny! He loves princesses, especially being one! He also won't ever say his name. If you ask him to say "Joseph" he just says, "me!" If you show him a picture of the Prophet Joseph Smith and ask him, who is this? He says," Me Smith" as he points to himself.

Two things happened yesterday to Luke that was just so funny to me! At dinner time Luke was getting Savannah a drink of milk. As he went to put the lid on he accidentally knocked the whole cup over and made quite the mess. I know I shouldn't have, but I just burst out laughing. Luke, mister neat freak, mister perfectionist! I couldn't help it! And then after dinner we took the kids outside for a little while and as we were getting ready, Luke had picked Jacob up and was playing with him when Jacob burped and spit up all over Luke! Again, I just started laughing. LOL, I'm actually laughing just thinking about it! Maybe you all are wondering why I thought these incidences were so funny. I guess sometimes its just nice to see the daddy be the mommy, even for a moment! =)

Little Jacob's eyes are adorable. You seem like you have fun with your kids and you really enjoy the good times!

Jacob's definitely a cute kid, though he'd probably be even cuter with "Reptile Hair" :)
