Friday funny

This morning, Nathan was playing angry birds on his iPod. He insisted on Smokey, our cat, to play with him. So, what did he do to get him to play?? The only thing he could do, grab his back foot and used it to tap the screen, why of course. And he actually beat a level doing it that way :) Nathan was so happy. He kept telling smokey that he beat level to and that he was such a smart cat!! My boy is so sweet and funny. Love him!!!
( this did end in a little scratch to the arm though. The cat can only tolerate so much!)

Just a little something I always want to remember about Nathan....

Lately, when he either wants something his way or knows he is doing something bad, he will say " oh, sorry....." whether it be for example... today he grabbed his nasal saline out of his little medicine bag... Unscrewed the cap and said " oh, sorry but I'm gonna SPRAY!!!!" and away he DID!

Or another example, when it comes to bedtime, we have put up a fight with him pretty much since he was born with him going to sleep. He hates bedtime!! But, when we tell him it's time for bed he will say something like " oh, sorry. But I'm not tired" or " oh sorry, but I'm not ready for bed" ( and then Kyle and I take turns putting him back in bed for at least an hour ( EVERY NIGHT)... But that's a whole other post ;)

I love that he thinks if he says sorry then he doesn't have to do it, or it's not right. I love the way 3 year olds think :)

( and seriously!!! How many commas did I just use!?!! I'm sure I used most of them in the wrong place too ;) )

Please lift this little girl up in pray!

I just recently learned about this little girl through twitter. I haven't read her whole story. But I believe she is 5 months old and living with SMA. She doesn't have too much long to live, unless a miracle happens!
You can follow this families journey, and watch them check off their bucket list for her.

Best friends

Tonight we went our to our friends house to hang out. They have 4 kids together and Nathan loves going over there to hang out with them.

Tonight Ethan, ( pictured above with Nathan) said that Nathan was going to be his best friend. He put his hand on the back of Nathan's head and was rubbing it, ha( but Nathan does have the perfect big head to rub) and even gave him a little smooch too, ha!

I love that he has somebody to call a friend. And these two boys are like 2 peas in a pod! They pretty much love all the same stuff, although Ethan is almost 2 years older than him.

I makes my heart very happy to see these two playing together! And I think it's because their daddies are best friends too :)

This is the best part of growing up.... Seeing your children become friends with your friends children.

My mini me

It is crazy to think how much Nathan and I are alike! When I sit back at the end of the day and think about all the things he did, good or bad, I see so much of myself in his actions or words.

He is a super picky, crazy, loud, funny, lovable, kind, little boy.
But he has his naughty side too. Like talking back, sometimes hitting, getting out of bed approximately 1 million times each and every night at bedtime.
I have one very strong quality. And that quality would be that I am very persistent. My husband loves that about me. He loves that if there is something I want, or something that I believe, I don't stop until I get it! Well Nathan has that quality too! It's not so great when a 3 year old has this quality though.
We are having a major power struggle in the Soller house!!!
Time to watch some super nanny I think :)
( I am so paying for the way I was with my mom as a kid)

Fun fingers

I've always been a red or pink( or nothing at all) fingernail kind of girl. That is, until now :)

I'm thinking about adding some white polka dots too ;)

Yay for fun fingernails :)
