Frady/Drolet Family Photos

We did these on Thanksgiving day. I wasnt sure if I was going to post them but I would like to have then printed in my blog book so I thought why not?
While Angela watched the turkey and ham bake Thanksgiving afternoon we all went to McLeod Plantation with the hope to get a good family portrait. That part didnt work out so great since I have a newer cameral now ans I forgot to order a new remote.
Here are some good shots though of the Frady "bunches."

Nicki and her boys.

things to remember

Here are some cute things that William say and does that I want to remember.

  • He calls himself "WeeWee" trying to same William
  • He is OBSESSED with trains and cats.
  • When he sees a cat he say "yoooowww" (meow)
  • He climbs onto everything
  • loves to kiss
  • October 16th he said Jesus for the first time.  He brings us books that have Jesus in them all the time say "Jesus, Jesus...wead (read) Jesus"
  • Speaking of "weading" he loves books.
  • He sings happy birthday and pretends to blow out the candle. This is thourghout the whole day.
William's Language:
  • ducky-----actually means doggie
  • yoooww--meow
  • Wicky- ---Uncle Ricky
  • Minnie---Aunt Nicki
  • towel-----cow
  • hore------horse (Hopefully no one hears him saying that one, they will definatly wonder what his parents are talking about in front of him.)
  • money---Barney
  • seed------Sid
  • MyMy---MyMa (Angela)
  • bukken---button

                                                      William loves when Asher comes over.

                                                                         They are a fun pair. 

                They dont see eachother as much as they used to since Asher is in school now. 

A side note: I think fall is officially here!

Bi-Polar Angel

I can  not believe that my baby boy is almost 21 months old now.  I cant believe that we are so close to his 2nd birthday. The last 2 months he has changed a lot. At the core of his personality and demeanor he is the same but he is a truly a typical toddler now. 

He has been slowly morphing in the dreaded terrible twos. Hopefully it doesn't get worse than this, but I can only imagine.
I am afraid that this little man has a big temper. He is strong willed for sure. If he doesn't get his way he will either hit himself in the head or look for something to throw. No kidding he throws things. I guess if he had a sibling he would hit them but he has to work with what he's got. He has hit the dogs if they happen to be near. Poor Sid has been on the receiving end of a couple whoppers.
One day Nicki called me when she got home with Sid and asked me if William bit him that day. I didn't know about it, but yes he did. He left a bad mark on Sid's arm.
He has also started yelling "NO!" At first when he started saying "no" it was kind of sweet. Mostly it was an answer to a question like, "are you ready to go nite-nite?" He would say in the sweetest voice as he shook his head "no." We still get that sweetness throughout the day, but if something is taken from him or he is removed somewhere he isn't suppose to be it is a BIG "NOOOOOWAAA!" and he points his finger when he says it.  The bad thing is that since he is our only one we think everything is so darn cute.
We hide it well though. We are not afraid to be stern with this new side of him. Spankings are pretty rare because he is not rebellious (yet) he just has an opinion.
He still my little sweetheart too though.

He is such an affectionate little thing. He randomly approaches us with his lips puckered up for a kiss.   He walks around saying "mama.....dada...mama...dada" tenderly. He also says "Shea."  Especially if Shea isnt home he will say it over and over again instead of Dada.  Another favorite ward is "Wicky" (Ricky). He sees him rarley these days, but he says his name at least 5 times a day.

He is all boy too! He likes to get dirty, play with trucks and cars.  His first real love/passion for something has started this past month. It is trains. It came out of nowhere. Now daily we have watch "chooooo choo" (Thomas & Friends). When he hears an airplane, or car, or lawn mower outside his eyes get bright and he exclaims "chooooo choo." 
Trucks are also choo choos.  I can not convince him otherwise.  This truck also gets a good beating daily. William gets very frustrated with it when it gets stuck or he cant push it as fast as he would like to. I will hear him sream with anger and look up only to see him hitting or kicking it.

I like when he plays in the sand. It doesnt aggrivate him quite as often.

What am I going to do with you my sweet little bi-polar angel?   Even at your worst moments I wouldnt choose to be anywhere else with anyone else. I love you!
