The world's greatest 3-year-old started pre-school this week (Sept. 4).

He has been SO excited.

He asked every day for the past five months if he could go to school, and his wish finally came true.

I was nervous, thinking of the worst case scenarios (I even asked him things after his first day like, "Does your teacher yell?" "Does your teacher hit?" haha). My heart pounded as I dropped him off. He didn't even blink, or look back.

If you know Camdon, then you realize how big of a deal that is, and honestly things couldn't have been better.

He has left each time with a smile on his face and LOTS of new things to tell me.

I am so proud of my little-big guy. I can't wait to see what he learns this year.

While watching tv...

The last post was lame, but I wanted to at least acknowledge that Kyler had turned one, and show off our family pictures that my friend Amber took, because I liked every thing about them (well, except maybe me). How was that for a run on sentence. Things around the Hopkinson house have been crazy, like always. I love summer, but I feel like my life goes non stop for about 90 days straight. I guess I can't complain too much, because I have been having a lot of fun. As for new adventures, we are moving for the 5th time in our married life. Cody started a new job in May, and we are in the process of building our very own home. Exciting, scary, all of that. As for kids, Camdon turned three on Saturday. We had a huge family pirate party, with a treasure hunt and all. Camdon can't stop talking about it, and that makes me think it was a slamming success. Camdon might be the sweetest, most responsible three-year-old I've ever met. He is also my best friend (he shares that title with a few choice people). Kye just started walking, and now we can't get him to stop. He is a brute, loves all things boy, and has the happiest smile you'll ever encounter. Anyway, I'm typing this from my phone while watching a very intense show with Cody (not sure why I chose this particular moment to blog, but I did), so I'm going to end it. Is anyone even reading this still?

We took family pictures for Kye's first birthday. He turned 1 on April 25. It was pretty awesome.

9 Months

How was my last post about Kyler being 7 1/2 months, and this one is 9, when it seems like it has only been a few days? That just not fair. He is too little to be this old.

His newest things are waving hi, clapping, shaking his head no, mimiking the words we say, and singing. This boy LOVES to sing. He and Camdon are a regular duet. They're going to make us rich one day.

He loves eating anything and everything within reach. And, I have yet to see him full. He never stops.

He follows Camdon everywhere still. Camdon has a love/hate relationship with all the attention Kye gives him. Kyler thinks he is older, bigger, and more capable than he is; but, in all fairness, he is pretty capable for his age.

At his appointment he was 18 lbs and 28 inches (I think...). About the 25% all the way around, just like his older brother.
He loves him some pasta...
...but not the pictures I make him suffer through.
