For the LOVE of all that is HOLY...

someone give me a Xanax!!


I introduce you to Booger (formerly known as the Baby Boy Child).


Pretty damn cute, ain't he? Lemme tell you a little story about Booger. He is very delayed in his speech due to chronic ear infections. I don't know if the fact that he was six weeks early plays a part or not but it could. So could the fact that he is the third child and everybody speaks for him.

Anyways, Booger got tubes in his ears in February at the age of sixteen months. Since then his speech hasn't improved by much. However, he is learning to sign and uses the signs for "more", "please" and "thank you" pretty regularly. He does have a small vocabulary which consists of "hi", "bye", "dada", "mom", "momma", "ma" and "no".

See all the forms of "mom" that he uses? Well, he uses them CONSTANTLY. Not just constantly but LOUDLY. I guarantee you that he has said "MOM" about 25 times since I started writing this post. No, I'm not ignoring him. He's thoroughly entertained at the moment but just loves to hear himself say MOM over and over and over again.

A few weeks ago I took the kids out to dinner with my parents and my brothers. They couldn't believe how often Booger said "mom". In fact, my brothers nicknamed him "Little Stewie".


Watch and learn.

I kid you not, this is EXACTLY what Booger does to me on a daily basis. I am NOT exaggerating. In fact, when I played that clip, he started up again. The kid is insane!!

I am definitely glad he is using his words but OH MAH GAWD...Xanax would be nice right now.
