The Winners! (by Sir Scooters)


Heeeeeeeyyyyy, everyone!!  It’s time to announce some winners of Andrea’s fabulous custom lettering!


Mommy’s sorry it took her so long to announce the winners…  We’ve actually been in Utah until a few days ago and things have been really crazy since we got home.

But things have settled down a wee bit, so it’s time to announce some winners!


Wait!  Before I do!  I have to tell you of my sufferings.  Not only am I trying to make up lost sleep from our trip, but I’m also cutting multiple teeth and I have a wet, soggy cold.  Can you believe it!?


But!  It’s nothing that a good raspberry won’t help.




Okay, now where was I?


Oh yes!

Thank you so much to everyone who entered my Mommy’s contest!  And thank you to Andrea for offering her wonderful talents to us all!

Mommy wishes everyone could win (including herself!!), but, alas, she could only generate two lucky winners from and they were…

Courtney and Amanda!!

Congratulations, you two!  Mommy will get you in contact with Andrea to coordinate your orders.

Thanks again everyone!!!  This is so fun!


Now, wait just a minute.  If Courtney and Amanda are the winners, then that means…





What’s that?


Hey now!  I’ve never eaten one of these before.


Sweet!  Thanks, Mom!

Ha, ha!!  I love it when Bubbers joins the fun!

Bubbers loves it, too, but sometimes he’s afraid of getting slimed…

P1050787 fixed

… So he makes me laugh out of range of my spit-up.

Then Mommy’s heart melts as she watches her two sons.

And she wishes the soundtrack of her life could always be our giggles!

Tales from a doctor’s office…


Hey Everyone! Guess what!?!

I turned nine months old which means time for another check-up at the doctor’s office!

(Oh, and Mommy forgot her camera, so she used her phone camera instead…)


And you know what?  The doctor says I’m headed for a growth spurt because my weight and height were lower percentiles than usual.  But I still have a big “coconut” that quickly grows out of my neck holes.  :)

Weight: 21.7 pounds (70th %ile)
Height: 28 inches (42nd %ile)
Head Circumference: 18.5 inches (91st %ile)


Poor Bubbers. He had a much harder time than I did at my check-up.

During the car ride to the doctor’s office, he casually said, “Scooters doesn’t want any shots.”

While walking into the doctor’s office, he said with a little more firmness, “Scooters doesn’t need any shots.”

When the nurse came in with the needles, Bubbers’ began crying, “No!  No!  Scooters doesn’t want any shots!  He doesn’t need them!!”

Then, in a last ditch effort to escape it all, he said desperately, “I need to go pee-pees!!!”

Poor Mommy.  She was really wishing Daddy was there to help comfort Bubbers, but she had forgotten to tell him about my appointment in time for him to take it off work and join us like he usually does…  So she was flying solo.

And all she could think of was: “It’s okay, just close your eyes and cover your ears!”

Bubbers obeyed with tears in his eyes and dread for my impending wails.

“Okay, we’re done!” the nurse suddenly announced.

“What?” Mommy stared, finally taking her eyes off her emotionally distraught 2-year-old and looking down at the 9-month-old in her arms.  There was a band-aid on each of my legs.  “You’re done?” Mommy asked blankly, “But he didn’t even cry.”

“Nope!” the nurse smiled and gathered her things.

“Wow…  Can we have you every time?!?” Mommy asked with shock.

The nurse laughed as she excused herself and Mommy still couldn’t believe it.

Then she and Bubbers laughed about it as she finished dressing me and we packed up.

Mommy was so grateful that everything turned out so well…


… And that we were all okay!
