Falling Down On Command

This is Uncle Brent, posting a video of Matey playing with a rag Grammy gave him and the fan in my room... and falling into the crack between the wall and the foot of the bed.

This has to be the world's cutest Pirate-In-Training.

So for thePirates birthday I went shopping and bought some clothing. Here are some pictures.

This pose was not my idea. AnWanna told me to be a skier. The hooded shirt is super comfy and the pants are skinny-jean-ish sort of things and way comfy as well. They are sewn like jean with the same sort of pockets ect but are not jean material.

I feel bad that the clothing I got was pretty much entirely mono-chromatic but that's all they had. This shirt is cutie and I like the length of the sleeve.

Very similar to the last shirt but bigger/longer buttons, and the sleeves are different too.

This shirt is kinda pregnant-ie but I really like the sleeve detail. I think it will work really good with one of my skirts, but doesn't look half bad with the skinny jeans (also a new purchase).

This shirt is super cute, more a fancy shirt than everyday wear.

It looks white but when it's by real white you can tell its ivory. I also got one in Champagne. Here's another good shot of the skinny jeans.

I also got two tank tops and a pair of jeans (the jeans i grabbed at the end and won't fit properly until i get back to before Matey came into my life). So lets recap: 3 pairs of pants and 8 shirts. Guess how much I spent. Go on, guess.

NOPE! You're wrong. I got them all, brand new for only $22. WalMart was getting rid of it's clearance clothing because they have/had a new shipment coming in so they marked down the clearance to $2 a piece.

They should do that more often.

However the bathing suits they have out... you couldn't pay me to get/wear one. They were gross.

Happy Happy Birthday thePirate!

I keep trying to post video but it won't load so I am ALL sorts of unhappy.

Happy Birthday to you (thePirate), Happy Birthday to you (thePirate), Happy Birthday dear Daddy (thePirate), Happy Birthday to you!

Happy Happy Birthday thePirate dear. Happy day's will come to you each year (as soon as you come home). If I had a wish (that i knew would come true) then it would be: a Happy Happy Birthday to you from me (or that you'd be home tomorrow).

This day is such a special day(unlike yesterday that was boring) its Birthday time for you(you're old now), we'd really like to celebrate this special day with you (too bad you're in Iraq). Zip-a-dee-A and hidey-ho, there's something we can do! We'll sing a song that we all know : Happy Birthday to you! (thePirate)

It's you're birthday (unless i'm horribly mistaken), shout Hooray! (or whatever it is the army shouts) We're going to sing (post) for you today. One year older (for sure) and wiser too (maybe), Happy Birthday to you!

thePirate turns 26 today! Although for him it might have been yesterday... not sure how the time difference works. Anyway: hooray for him.

Matey is doing VERY well. He has 10 teeth (4 on top and bottom in the fronts and 2 molars on the top). Matey LOVES going outside and has no separation anxiety when we're out there. I was digging in the garden and he was helping me, that is until I looked up and saw him 30ish feet away heading happily for the chicken coop. I shouted at him that he was supposed to be helping me and I asked how long he had left me for- he looked at me over his shoulder, smiled, and changed course heading for LittleUncleJon's bike.

Matey can also Stand very well. I tried to get video of it up but it won't load. It's very sad. He doesn't understand why we want him too: he can't touch or play with anything while he does, so it doesn't happen very often but he can.

Matey loves to play games: he'll crawl to the stairs, climbs up two of them so he can hide behind the curtain and waits for someone to come get him. On your approach (if you stomp you're feet so he's sure to hear you) he'll giggle or squeal and if you say (with the curtain still closed) "Where's Matey?" he'll straight up laugh. Then you tear the curtain back and giggle him and he'll just laugh and laugh.
Or you won't notice that he ran behind the stairs and will look for him, and he'll think you're just playing but are slow so he'll try and move the curtain and end up falling down the few steps he had gone up. But 95% of the time I know where he is and no one gets hurt.

(the tub pictures are a day we were in the garden)

i LOVE his faces

Listen closely and you'll hear Matey say that he really misses his dada. I miss his dada too.

Not always- but sometimes when Matey talks he'll scrunch his nose like that and its just too funny.

love for thePirate

He generally kisses closer to thePirates face than what's on film. Matey also doesn't generally throw the pictures of thePirate away violently like that.

He's currently dying so more later!
