Cousin's on Mommy's Side

Cousin Kailey, Isaak, Mica, Cousin Evan, Cousin Elijah, Cousin Ethan

Hanging With Grandma Spiehs

Hanging With Daddy


  • Daddy saw it happening before it happened, but just couldn't act quick enough. Little Isaak got stung in the nose by a Paper Wasp tonight.
  • I felt so bad for him!
  • It was when my whole family was gathered to take pictures.
  • I was wishing that we had what I saw a mom had blogged about: Coolkidz Reusable Cold Pack!
  • Walgreens had nothing like this, a little ice pack for kids.
Mica's been watching: They Might Be Giants Here Comes Science CD. He loves it. I happen to like the illustration style in their song Electric Cars.

Marble Racers


  • I'm ironing for the first time in like a year I think.
  • Grandma Spiehs would not be proud! She irons her sheets before putting them on her bed! Strange I sleep in them to make them wrinkled. She always said to me, "Oh, but they feel so good laying down for the first time after ironing them".
  • I'm sure she thinks it's strange for me to iron once a year!
  • I have a technique where I put the clothing on, spray it with water, and pat it down. Wrinkles out! ;) It's the slacker way!
  • I like the way the iron sounds and steams up after I've sprayed water down. I hate when I iron wrinkles right back into the clothing!

Watch Dis

  • Isaak this morning says over and over again, "Mica watch dis"! "Dis" is "this".
  • He then does something he thinks is really impressive that's not all that exciting.

Question of the Day

  • He was doing so well this week.
  • I'll take the saying from Elmo's Potty Time: "Accidents happen and that's ok".
  • It's a good thing we have wood floors!

Water Park

  • Aunt Terra and Uncle Tyson took their boy's along with ours to a local water park.
  • Terra said that Isaak really got into the water!
  • Mica played at first, and then he sat the rest of the time saying it was too cold to play.

Orange Tie

  • We went to Kohl's tonight to get a few things for our big family pictures (on my side) this weekend, and Daddy got something to wear for his one man art show that's in one month.
  • Mica saw an outfit in his section that he wanted to try on. It was a vest, tie and well the whole nine yards.
  • I let him try it on since I had to go try on something anyhow. He was pouting because he wanted the tie out of the vest. Can you tell that this kid has only ever worn a tie once? He wore one for my cousin Stacy's wedding when he was 3 years old.
  • He cleans up good!
  • Mica wanted what he tried on. The trouble was is that the pants that went with the set were huge! I told him, "No. We're not buying that".
  • Tears filled up his eyes and he started to cry. It's been awhile since I've seen Mica that way. I've never seen him cry over not getting a clothing item.
  • I told him that he could get a shirt and tie, just not that set. Then that way he could wear it to Daddy's show.
  • We found a blue button down shirt and an orange tie. I'm so glad because orange is his favorite color! His tears dried up, and a new smile formed on his face.

Pudding Snack Cups

  • Isaak's pretty messy after his pudding snack.
  • He loved his snack by the way!

He Got Kicked Out!

  • Earlier this week Mica and our nephew Evan tried pushing Isaak out of Evan's room.
  • The crazy thing that that Mica and Evan let our nephew Elijah into Evan's room. It's just Isaak that they wanted out.
  • Mica already got his bedroom door taken away from slamming Isaak's fingers in it. We still haven't given it back. That happened a few months ago.
  • Aunt Terra asked Evan, "Why do you and Mica let Elijah into your room and not Isaak"?
  • Evan answers, "Because Isaak's a baby, and Elijah's a big boy".
  • Terra says, "Evan...Elijah and Isaak are the same age".
  • Evan says, "Oh"????? I'm sure he was thinking, "But Mica says he's a baby".
  • I feel sorry for Isaak. Isaak plays like he's 2. Elijah thinks he's one of the big kids and plays like one.
  • Mica does play with Isaak some, but he wants him to play like Mica himself plays.

Peeing Standing Up

  • Isaak's been dry most of a week now when he is awake that is.
  • Today he tried going pee standing up three or four times.
  • Daddy said that when he first tried just a little tinkle came, but early this evening he made his first official bathroom call standing up with success.
  • Isaak just turned two May 19, so I think he's doing really well with potty training.

Who's That Sleeping in My Bed?

  • Definitely not Goldilocks!
  • Isaak woke up twice last night with a scream cry. It almost seemed like he had a bad dream.
  • The time I went in to get him...he was sitting up in his crib crying and waving his arms about.
  • I wonder when they start getting night terrors?

Discovering Paint Chips and a Fire Hydrant


  • Here's our Mica. He's 4, will be 5 in August. He's so tall! We're waiting a year to send him to kindergarten. He's going to look like a giant compared to the other kids next year!
  • Mica always runs ahead on walks and...
  • Isaak's always behind. He has to look and touch everything.
  • Daddy said that Isaak's a lot like Grandpa Spiehs is on walks, and Mica's like he is.
  • Both boys are not afraid to climb! Mica climbed this himself, and Isaak tried to.
  • Isaak wanted no help!
  • He got mad when Daddy pulled him off.
  • They kept going down the slides.
  • Mica on the Zip Line.
  • At the end of our trip to the park Isaak kept trying to go back. Even after we got a 1/2 a block away he was trying to go back.

Stacking and Knocking Them Down

  • And knocks them down again and again.
