To Swim or Not to Swim..

"Okay, so Mom and Dad tell me that I am going swimming for the first time today... Dad seems pretty excited, but I am not sure about this..."

"Yes, Sarah, I know the water is not very deep, but I am not feeling very comfortable with this... Sit down? No thanks, I think I will just stand."

"Mom, where are you? Can you tell everyone that I don't even sit down in the bathtub for more than a second or two? I appreciate the effort here on this lovely sunny day, but I really think I will pass on this whole swimming thing..."
"Whew, thanks Dad. I knew you would save me!"
"Yea, swimming is not for me.... not right now.... but can I keep this toy duck though?"

Go Gators!

"Apparently Mom and Dad have decided where I am going to college.... Go Gators!"

"Do you think I could pay my way through college doing advertisements for Publix?"


1. Jared saw his first shiny birthday helium balloon while shopping with me at Publix this week. Seeing his sheer delight, the cashier offered him a courtesy Publix balloon which promptly became his favorite toy.

2. The oversized Gator t-shirt shown here was a gift from his "Uncle Martin" (dad's friend from the "Pot") who is studying abroad right now. Thanks Martin!

"As of today, Mommy and Daddy signed some papers and the house is ours!!! YAY!"

Go Baby!

"Hey Mommy, I am watching my new favorite show, Go Baby!"

"Hey-- look at this cute girl, Sophie! Hey Sophie!"

"Hey, wait.... I think this kid, Baby, is trying to steal Sophie from me!"

"Oh well, this frog is pretty cute too! A frog is as good as a girl at this age... "
