Jon's newest trick

Burping! Yes you read it correctly. Jon has figured out how to bump and goes around all day burping and saying, "suse me." Where in the world did he pick this up? I work hard to teach Jon how to count, learn his animals sounds, identify colors, and none of these will he ever just do on cue. But ask for a burp and he's happy to oblige.

For the Boston Clan

I'm aware that there is not much hope for the team this year, but we thought we would teach Becca about her Boston roots today.

Despite colds...

Jon and Becca have colds (and Michael is hinting at one). :( We have had some miserable hours of the last few days because of this. Last night I was up multiple times with poor Becca who was having a hard time sleeping with her stuffed nose - wanting the paci, but then not being able to breathe. However, despite this all we had a great day. It started with Tim heading off to a gig and when Becca took her nap, I took one on the couch also (interrupted every 15 minutes or so by Jon but good nonetheless). This meant that the boys got to watch 2 hours of the Disney channel for a Saturday morning treat which suited them just fine. It included some "old" Mickey clips that I saw briefly when woken by Jon. Read old as those I remember as a kid and for those of you familiar with Mickey's Clubhouse today, what Michael refers to as Mickey before Toodles.
Just before noon we all headed up to get dressed and Becca got to experience pigtales! I'm sure this will be the first of many piggie pictures:

The two little kids and Tim took long naps ending after the Michigan football game started, so we moved quickly into family time including dinner around the TV. Here is a cute video of Jon and Tim after Michigan won the game. (Please excuse the bouncing video - Michael was the one who took it.) :)
