Twinkle In Your Eyes...

You are such a happy and loving little boy. You have so much personality and you love to play. This morning, before I left for work, we were able to play Peek-a-Boo. It was so funny to listen to you laugh as I covered you with the blanket. And, everytime I did, you would hold your breath for a second. It was pretty funny. As we played, I was able to snap this picture with my phone. It is one of my favorite pictures of you. I can see the happiness, the twinkle in your eyes. People are always warmed by that twinkle and I cannot wait to watch you share it with others throughout your life.

For me, that twinkle has already changed my life.

I love you buddy.

Bath Time Fun...

Boston and Braxton,
You two are such happy boys. The two of you are always giggling and smiling. It makes being your daddy so much fun. My favorite time of the day is bath time. I miss so much throughout the day when I am at work, but bath time gives me time to just spend time with you guys. It gives me time to cherish your special smiles and giggles.
And, it allows me the time to watch you two interact with each other. I love watching you guys play, talk, and giggle together. It warms my heart. I love seeing how close you two are, and I know you guys always will be the best of friends.
Sometimes, during bath time, we turn Brax into a circus monkey. He seems to enjoy it.
Bath time is a time full of giggles and noisy boys, and I love every minute of it.
I love you guys!

I love you guys.

Ellen's Underwear Models...

Boston and Braxton,
Throughout your lives, you guys will have a collection of embarrassing photos taken of you. These photos will often be used to entertain family and friends. And, they will always be used to share with your girlfriends. This past week, you guys completed a photo shoot to be Ellen's NEW Underwear Models. Here are some of the best shots...
We will definitely be archiving these for later use...
I love you guys.

Bow Ties, Bow Ties & Undies...

Just like your daddy, you are full of sophistication. Don't laugh! I'm serious! As a Barrow male, you follow a line of Gentlemen that will not hesitate to use the "That's What She Said" joke at the most inappropriate time, give you a buttercup after a few bowls of Papi's chili, or provide you with the important service of a cup check as you hold the door at a public place. If that doesn't show some sort of glorious sophistication then I am not sure what does.
Now, don't get me wrong, we were all taught proper manners. We use the words "Please", "Thank you", and "Dumbass". And, sometimes, they are all used in one sentence like, "Hey, can you PLEASE stop being a DUMBASS...THANK YOU!" So, as you can see the sophistication knows no bounds.
Our words tell people a lot about us. Our words can have mixed meanings and they can tell people different stories. That is why we usually use kind words, intelligent words, and even some funny ones. However, it is always difficult not to pull out the "That's What She Said" joke even in the most inappropriate times. Like when you are sitting in meeting about mail room procedures and some says, "You should put your package in my box" or "The insertion process only takes a few minutes", and you just have to literally bite your tongue until it bleeds to avoid getting fired.
Our actions tell people a lot about us. Our actions, like our words, can have mixed meanings and they can tell people different stories. That is why we practicing kind actions, intelligent actions, and even some funny ones. We practice providing service to others. We help others in whatever way we can. And, we hold doors open for other people. We just don't usually hold them open for each other because that leaves you open to attack. It leaves your nose exposed for a buttercup and your jewels open to a cup check.
Who is the GM of the Lakers?
Mitch *Smack to the Groin* Kupchak.
But, don't worry, your reflexes will develop quickly. Uncle B cannot even walk past me without me protecting my privates. If he gets within a five mile radius, my internal alarm goes off and I go into jewel protection mode.
So, as I have perfectly displayed, we are a sophisticated bunch of sophisticates. We are so sophisticated that I won't be letting either of you read this post until you are of age.
But, for any of those that are questioning our supreme level of sophistication, we counteract that with...
Still NOT impressed?!!
We counteract that with...
If you are still not convinced, then I don't have time for you.
So, with that, we are outta here with our sophistication and all.
Love you boys!

Time for a Crawl (Part 2)...

It didn't take long. Just a few days after your little brother started motoring around, you caught up to him. You started chasing him down. You crawled and giggled as you did. It was awesome. I am very proud of you buddy.
Unfortunately, we were at the park and none of us had our phones or cameras so we didn't capture any pictures but we will have some more soon.
I love you man.
