What My Crew Is Up To

My boys are all different. They look totally different from one another. They each have their own distinct personality. They are also each interested in different things. I thought that I would just write some things about what each boy is in to these days and some funny things they say. When I'm 80, I want to remember my little fellas.
*Thanks Keri for a great idea.

  • Jackson is (hopefully) at the end of his Stars Wars kick.
  • Jackson and Riley will be starting spring soccer soon.
  • Riley is very tender-hearted. You can raise your voice and he tears up. He says his "eyes are sweating."
  • No matter what Knox is doing, as soon as he hears Randy's keys in the front door he is looking for him. He's a daddy's boy!
  • Jackson still makes Riley use hand sanitizer before touching Knox when they get out of school.

  • Jackson thinks Germany is cool because Henfling is German. He rooted for them in the Olympics.
  • Knox thinks the lady on the cooking channel is talking to him. He gets embarrassed and smiles at her.
  • Randy is dying for the boys to ride bikes. They are SO not interested right now. He bought them some anyway!
  • Knox looks just like Randy when he sleeps. He always has his mouth open:O
  • Riley has an amazing memory. He can repeat something word for word, especially movie dialogue.
  • My boys have a Big Papa and a Little Papa.
  • Still having trouble with saying his l's, Riley says he wants to watch "A Bug's Wife."
  • Jackson said, " Mom, nobody better mess with Riley. I've got his back." (I love that!)
  • Riley wants everybody to notice Knox. When we go into his school or a store, he says really loudly, "OH LOOK, IT'S BABY KNOX. OOOOOH, HE'S SO PRECIOUS!"
  • Knox always has to wear a bib. He never stops drooling.
  • Randy is a "hands on" dad. He's a big guy, but he loves his bubbas. He gives all of the boys a bath and he feeds Knox his cereal at night.
  • Jackson can tell you any thing about any animal. His favorite channel is Animal Planet.
  • Riley loves food. He relates everything to food. We were talking about something and Riley said, "He'll be in the gravyyard."
  • Knox is the only one of the boys that slept in a crib.
  • The big boys eat like teenagers. They love HOT wings and Jack has to order steak and baked potato at restaurants. (We are now taking donations for our food bill.)
I could add a million more things to this list. I'm sure I'll do another one because my boys are always changin'!
