Just a picture

Here is a picture that Jay took last Friday while he was at work. This is him on top of the a rig. See the buildings below, and those little lines are streets. Don't worry though he has a great harness that teathers him to the rig.

Rain, rain go away!!

Ok so I get that it is spring and April showers bring May flowers, but what does torrential rains in May bring?? Just want you to see the forcast for the next week. Rain, rain and more rain.

This reminds me of the first year that I lived here. My dad and I were in the car going somewhere and he told me. "You know I don't know if I can handle anymore gray dark days." We are definalty in the middle of some very dark gray days.
For the month of May the average rainfall in OKC is 5.44 inches, we are at a whopping total of (not including today and yes it is pouring rain) 10.56 inches.

So we are doing lots of indoor activities. Breanna keepings asking "outside?", but it is too yucky to go outside and do anything. So think sunny skies for OKC, we need the rainman to go away, for awhile!!

Pictures, 6 mon old info, Carnival, swimming, and Oil Rigs

So JJ was 6 mon old last Friday. We went to the doctor and had his 6 mon old well baby visit. Here are his current stats....

Weight - 16lbs 0ozs -- 24th percentile for kids his age
Height - 27 inches long -- 75th percentile for kids his age

so like Breanna so far he is tall and skinny. He is just the sweetest little baby. not much bothers him. He actually gets excited when you put him down to go to sleep at night. He has started vocalizing a lot more. This morning I could have sworn that he yelled mama when he wanted to get up.

We went Sat morning and had some pictures taken. I had them in their Sooner outfits, and then in their Harley outfits. We had a good time, but I have to tell you it is VERY difficult to get 2 kids to do what you want them to do when they are taking pictures. We only go 34 pictures taken in total. I got 5 of them printed. For those of you were are going to see in Branson in June I am bringing all of the pictures and you can pick which ones you want to take home with you!!

She is ready to go with her Grandad anytime.

On Sunday we got out our pool in the backyard for the kids to get into . Breanna still calls swimming "splashy splashy". She now goes to the back and says outside and splashy. She wants to go all the time. I have found some really cool swimsuits. They sell them at Target and the brand is Wee Wave. They are swim suits that have built in leak proof diapers in the bottoms. So that you don't have to put a diaper on under the suit. Who ever invented this was a genius. I got them for both kids.

When JJ was done swimming, he sat in his little play gym outside and had some fun.After a long day of play JJ is ready for bed with his comfy cosy PJ's

We went to the Oklahoma Heart Hospital carnival on Sat. They put this on once a year to show appreciation to the employees and their families. Breanna had a blast. My mom and Dad met us at the carnival and walked around for awhile. Breanna got to go into a jump gym and play some little kid games. Jay even took her up one of the big slides and she came down on her own. Here are two pictures from that day.

Incase you are wondering what in the heck Jay has been working on, here they are. They aren't the typical oil wells that you would think of. They are not the pump jack kind. They are 230 feet tall and Jay sometimes has to climb to the top to check something out. Here are some pictures that he has taken over the last month of some of the rigs that he has worked on. Don't know if you all watch the Discovery channel, but they have a series that is called Oil, Sweat, and Rigs. They go through and actually featured a rig that Jay has spent a TON of time on lately. It is going to be on again here are the dates and times from the Discovery Channel. I am sure that the times are Eastern, so if you want to watch check your local listings. If you do watch the show the rig that Jay worked on is the F11 Nabors rig.

T-Spoons has a mere 48 hours to drill a 4000 feet well. In that time he battles a broken mud pump, falling pipes and a potentially fatal release of highly explosive gas.

May 18th is a big day.................

What an amazing last 6 months, thats right tomorrow JJ will be 6 months old. Boy has time flown by. Here are some pictures so that you can see how he has progressed. He will be going to the doctor tomorrow so I will post all of his stats after that. He will be getting shots as well. JJ is starting to sit up on his own, he is eating a TON of baby food. He is growing and learning more everyday. He is a thinker, you can see him pondering things already. We are going to go to the Oklahoma Heart Hospital Carnival on Sat and then go and have our pictures taken.

JJ right after he was born -8lbs 0ozs

Happy Birthday MOMMY!!


Ok, ok so I am a slacker… not really we have been in the process of moving offices so we have been VERY busy. I am getting vacation pictures back tonight so I’ll post about all of that tomorrow. Things back at home are good. The kids are getting bigger and learning more and more everyday. JJ is beginning to sit up by himself. We are working on it at home most evenings. He does ok until he wants to turn his head, his body tends to want to go with him. We had a quiet weekend at home. It rained. I go to Target on Sunday mornings, it is the easiest time to go with the babies because there is not a ton of people there. Here are some pictures I have taken lately of the kiddos.
