He is a great uncle to William (and the other boys too).
He holds him, plays with him all the time. When Ricky talks to William his little face just lights up. It's nice having him around the house too. During the day if Shea is gone, it's great to have someone so willing to pitch in with the baby. He is a great help, but there are a few things that Uncle Ricky just cant handle.
1. Diaper changes
2. Spit up
I know that one of these things has happened because I will hear "uhhhhh Jo, I think he wants you."
One time Ricky came in the room to talk to me while I had the baby on the changing table. He came around the corner and saw that I was actually taking him temperature. Ricky said, "oh my gosh , Jo...what are you doing!?" I told him and he was like, "No! Cant you do it under his arm or something?" He couldnt even stay in the room.
I cant wait to see him with his own kids!
William is a lucky little boy, to have such a fun and loving uncle.

William gets cuter and cuter everyday. He is growing so fast. This week he has found his voice. He is squealing and babbling all the time. It is really cute to watch.
For a while he has been able to scoot around when he is on his tummy. I know I am a bad mama but I do let him sleep on his tummy. At night I will put him down in the middle of the crib and when I get him up the next morning he is completely on the other side, sometimes turned on his back and facing the other direction. Friday I put him on the floor for a minute and when I turned to look at him instead of just scooting he was army crawling. It was so exciting to watch him. I think this little boy will be on the go in no time.
We made a trip to the beach this week too. It was late in the evening and a little overcast. But still it was a lot of fun.
Even though we are total beach people and love to spend time there, there are ulterior motives to those trips to the beach. It gets a a ton of energy out of my insane dogs!
They are awesome dogs, but I have so much less time now to devote to them. They are walked everyday, but these boys need and deserve a trip to the shore every once and a while.
Not to mention how great it is the next day when they sleep ALL DAY!
They add so much enjoyment to anything we do with them. When we make plans as a family it is always with these two boys in mind. We try to find activities that we can include them in.
Game is so funny at the beach. He constantly goes back and forth to where are things are, checking on them. I guess he has to make sure that everything is still there. Game is all about us. He wants to have constant human interaction. He plays in the water but usually he avoids getting in very deep. He plops himself down and a wave comes and he jumps up, scurrying away. There is only one thing that will make him get in......that is if he feels that he needs to rescue or protect us. Game freaks out with panic when one of us gets too far away from him.
I dont know what I would do with out this boy. I love this picture of him. It truly captures who he is and what I love so much about him.
Then there is Moses...Moses, Moses Moses, my sweet Moses. If we were ever in danger I am sure that he would be upset, but if there was a tennis ball in sight that would have to take precident. He is the opposite of Game in every way.
Unlike Game he will go under water, but not to rescue one of us. Maybe he would if we were in possession of his ball.
William likes the water a lot. He loves to be in the swimming pool, the bath tub, the sink....so the ocean is no different. It is really cute, when we do put him in he stares at his feet the whole time. This discovery of his feet has turned into an obsession. It's crazy to think that next year he will be walking on the beach.
