Today as I was trying to watch the new Harry Potter trailer (approximately 2 minutes) I realized that both the boys were behind the couch-not a save place if you are the mother. I watched the whole video and then said "Vance" No response. "Tanner" No response. I go behind the couch and they had my wallet and had dumped everything out of it including all the change I had in there. They had their hands full of credit cards, driver's license, and a bunch of other fun stuff. I immediately checked Tanner's mouth and found a quarter in it! Great, I know. I quickly gathered up the change and the rest of the stuff and told them both to leave mommy's wallet alone. When I told Stephen about it he first asked if I'd taken a picture of it. No, sorry I was more worried about getting money out of our baby's mouth than taking a picture. No thiefing picture this time, but I hope you enjoy the ones I did take today.

I took this video about a week ago, but I thought it was still worth posting. When Tanner was a newborn people would ask how Vance was handling thing or how he got along with Tanner and whatever else along those lines. Basically Vance ignored Tanner's existence for the most part. Sometimes he would tell me to put Tanner down or get mad if I tried to take a picture of them together, but mainly he ignored him. The older they both get though the more interested Vance is in Tanner and the more he likes him. In the past three months or so you could even say that they've become playmates. Recently Vance has taken it to a whole new level. He thinks he needs to be the one to fee Tanner solid foods. If I start getting food ready for Tanner, Vance will hop in the chair and grab the spoon and expect me to hand it over so he can feed Tanner. I've caught Vance a few times offering his snacks to Tanner. I try to explain to Vance that Tanner can't eat everything that he can yet because he doesn't have enough teeth, but that hasn't sunk in yet. As you can see this is our new, but cute and sweet problem. Tanner isn't a big fan of Vance feeding him, in case you were wondering. He thinks it is funny at first but mainly he is hungry and doesn't want to mess around with Vance, who's feeding skills...well, let's just say they aren't as good as Mom's.

He loves to jabbber and make noise.
He loves to play with Vance.
He can pull himself to a standing position on furtniture and walk along it.
He still smiles at everyone, but will immediately hide his face.
He's a momma's boy.
He likes to eat cheerios, kix, but his favorite cereal is chex.
He loves to get into everything.
He tries to be a big boy like his brother.
He is still as cute as ever!

Here are the last pictures I'm posting here from our trip. I did however put like 70 pictures on my facebook page today so if you are interested in seeing more and have a facebook account you can go and look at my two summer albums. We did a lot of different things. We went to three parks, we went to Tri-Cities for a day, we went miniature golfing, went to the parade, firework show, Stephen saw "Kung Fu Panda", and we just hung out. Glen was at EFY and then Scout Camp so we didn't see much of him. Rose had girls camp so we saw just a little more of her, but not a lot. Eric was home in the evenings after work. My dad took two days off of work so we got to see him a little. Mainly we just got to hang out with my mom though. I am sure she enjoyed having the grandkids to herself. We had a great time and are glad my family put up with us as much as they did. Can I just tell you that I love my parents spare room too. It's purple and it has an awesome bed. What could be better? Oh, and Vance got everyones names down pretty good by the end of the week. He was even saying Eric which has been a hard name for him to learn. At the beginning of the week he just called him Rose. I don't blame him, that name is much easier to say. :)
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. Enjoy!

Here is my attempt at getting Tanner bopping to some music. He enjoys a good music. He is in a phase now whenever he sees the camera he goes after it so I have to try and hide what I am doing, makes it harder to catch things.
We are headed to Washington tomorrow sometime. I may or may not have time to post before we go and I don't know how much I will get around to while we are there. We'll see. Happy 4th to everyone if I miss that!
