That is the question of the hour, no minute. I probably hear this from Graham at least 50 times a day. I told Kevin I was going to count one day how many times he asks me "why" ... i really will do it one day ... keep checking back and I'll let you know :) I know he's little and is learning the world, and I know every kid goes through this questioning phase, but it's rather torturous at times. I've even resorted to responding the dreaded mother phrase, "because I said so." I was just telling someone last night that not a day goes by that Graham doesn't do/say something to make me laugh and/or smile, BUT that also not a day goes by that he doesn't do/say something that makes me want to wring his little neck. Earlier this week, we were riding in the car and I asked Graham what he wanted to talk about, and he said, "I want to talk about Jesus. When he wore the flag." I asked him what flag? And he said "the flag on his head," and I asked him like a shepherd? And he said, "yeah, like a shepherd." The things that come out of his mouth are priceless!!!! He's been getting really excited watching Luke and Carter starting to take steps (by the way, Luke took about 5 today), and he loves when they "talk." I just know he's going to have a blast when they can really start playing with him. I love how much he loves them :) What a wonderfully unique family dynamic we have ... I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!

The 4th at Pickwick

We went to Pickwick for the 4th with my parents and Jackson's family. We had some minor mishaps (Graham burnt his fingers on a sparkler, a firework went haywire and sent our double, yes double, stroller into flames, we got stranded on the boat, etc), but we had TONS of fun and LOTS of good eating!! It was a great retreat, and I think as my boys age they are REALLY going to love going to the lake.
Why is it SO hard to get a good pic of my 3 boys?!?!?!?
I mean, could they be any cuter?

Could it be more obvious how much Graham looks up to Jake?

ANOTHER new nephew

Joseph James Moore was born around 2:30 p.m. on Thur, July 8 weighing 6 lbs. 14 oz. and measuring 20 in. Wilson and Katie had their 3rd baby boy bringing my parents up to 7 grandsons (with one more on the way) and only 1 granddaughter ... we've got a lot of testosterone going on in this family :) I was super excited to be in Memphis when he was born ... he is my first nephew/niece to see in the hospital and meet on his actual birthday. Wilson and Katie are doing great and loving on their precious new miracle that God has so graciously bestowed upon them!!

10 Months Old

Our little buddies are 10 months old!!! This was by far the hardest month to take a picture of them together in the chair ... I was literally sweating once I was finished :) Aside from sleeping through the night, they have hit the best (in my opinion) milestone ... feeding themselves!!!!! They are fully on table foods now, and while I feel like I spend a lot of my day chopping food into little pieces, it is so nice to put them in their highchairs and just put food on their trays and let them have at it. They are awesome eaters and sometimes even eat more than Graham. Still crawling, pulling up, and cruising ... Luke will stand without holding onto anything for a few seconds but neither are taking any steps yet. They truly do enjoy playing with one another and it warms my heart when they smile, laugh, and squeal at each other. They truly are 2 precious baby boys!!!!!!!!
