The kids were taking a bath and Shannon saw Lily grabbing for something in the tub. When he took a closer look he realized it was two poop logs dropped by R.J., who of course denied that they belonged to him.

Shannon, "Lib, you need to see this one."
I walked downstairs to find R.J. quietly sitting on the couch, attempting to gnaw a hole into a bag of fruit snacks. "I want opened."
Even after it was opened the gnawing continued because there was some good flavor left in that bag.

I was running on the treadmill and would check on R.J. every few minutes. Once I had finished I went downstairs to find R.J. completely naked (he had removed his jammies and diaper), quietly playing with his trains.

I just found R.J. putting Chapstick on Lily. I am so glad he looks out for her.

Lily wanted nothing to do with me when I tried to feed her, she would just grab the spoon. When R.J. started to feed her she ate and not once grabbed the spoon.

Lily was happily playing with a piece of plastic and R.J. ruined her fun by roughly tearing it from her hands and then giving her a car.
February 2, 2011
I just found R.J. sitting halfway up the stairs coaxing Lily to continue her journey to the top. (Lil is not yet one.)

R.J. walked into the room with an unopened beer. "My beer, Mommy. My beer. Delicious."

I was making bread sticks to have with dinner and when I turned around I noticed there were a couple missing. R.J. was breaking raw bread sticks into bite sized pieces for Lily.

I just turned around to see R.J. taking a bite out of a stick of butter.

R.J. was dropped off at daycare and immediately sat at a table with a little girl and shared his veggie straws with her. The girl was was working asked him if he needed a candle for his date and he responded with a simple, "Yup."

Email I got from Shannon while I was at work.
Just put Lily down for a nap -- very cranky -- I went poop -- Lily started to cry and I hear, "I'M COMING LILY!!" Chugger comes flying up the steps -- in the bathroom with me he said, "Daddy poopin?" I told him yes and to go back downstairs. He turned on the water, said, "Wash hands.", and ran down the stairs.

Last night at a friend's party R.J. was sharing a plate with Shannon. After a few minutes Shannon realized the R.J. was dipping a carrot in ranch, chewing it, and then spitting the chewed up carrot onto the step.
March 9, 2011 (The day after Lily's 1st birthday)
I made cupcakes for Lily to share at daycare. She of course devoured hers and then got out of her seat and scavenged for crumbs on the floor. She had to be put back into her seat so that the floor could be vacuumed without her going after all of the crumbs.

I Just walked into the living room to find R.J with his shirt half off, his pants around his ankles, and his diaper in the middle of the floor.
March 17, 2011
R.J. was just holding out his hand to Lily offering her a snack and was saying, "Here puppy, here puppy."
