the great bambino

Well I had a special request by Tyler's Aunt Rozie to update our blog, and I was happy to do it. It's always nice to know people read your blog, even if they don't leave any comments. :) I admit I'm guilty of that too, I enjoy reading other blogs, but sometimes don't get around to leaving a comment.

Just some pictures I snapped of Jacoby as he was running away from me because I had my camera out. Jacoby, you are handsome.
My dad got the grandkids a little four-wheeler that they've been having a ball on. It doesn't go very fast, which is perfect for them. Johnny can even ride it by himself. Ha ha. That's funny to watch because he seems way too small to be able to ride it.
Jacoby has never really been interested in any shows or movies, but we finally found a winner. Naturally it has a ball and dog in it so he loves it. Sandlot. Now, isn't that movie a classic? I sure love it; it was always a favorite at my house. He will seriously watch the whole thing without making a peep and doesn't even move a muscle. It has been nice to turn it on while I make dinner or clean the house. He has started to do some really funny things that he's learned from the movie like sliding, like he's sliding onto a base, tapping his bat on the ground before he hits it, and hitting the ball off the tee and taking off like he's running to a base. He's a very observant boy and it makes me smile to watch him discover things. I have realized that there are some not so good things on Sandlot that I hope he won't start quoting such as: scab eater, butt sniffer, pus licker, fart smeller. Ha ha.
Jacoby needed a haircut the other day so we just turned Sandlot on with his personal DVD player and it was a real breeze, quite the opposite of how it usually is. Funny kid.

Favorite show.

"Michael Squints Palledorous walked a little taller that day. And we had to tip our hats to him. He was lucky she hadn't beat the CRAP out of him. We wouldn't have blamed her. What he'd done was sneaky, rotten, and low... and cool. Not another one among us would have ever in a million years even for a million dollars have the guts to put the moves on the lifeguard. He did. He had kissed a woman. And he had kissed her long and good. We got banned from the pool forever that day. But every time we walked by after that, the lifeguard looked down from her tower, right over at Squints, and smiled."

Ha, ha. Love that movie!I think I'm going to have go put it on now.

Jaimi, did you really just quote that word for word. Wow! That's right, I remember your family is obsessed with the movie too. :)

i love those pictures of jacoby! you're right, he is handsome! =) and that is an awesome movie. kids are so funny - hallie really likes the rescuers, and she'll walk around pretending to cry and she'll say "penny's sad. *sniff* we'll be ... alright!" ha ha. i don't know if you remember that movie, but it's pretty funny to hear a two year old quoting a movie! =)

Jacoby is so sweet! I'd love to see him slide into the base and hit his bat, that's so funny! That's awesome that he'll hold still for you to cut his hair. I'll have to remember that trick :)
Wow I just read Jaimi's quote!

Ha ha! Jacoby cracks me up! He's such a cutie. His haircut looks good.

Jacoby is such a doll — look at his big ol' grin. :) Trey was also obsessed with The Sandlot for awhile (and I was happy for a distraction that actually worked!).

Jaimi said...

No, Missy. I didn't quote that verbatim. When I read your post, I started thinking of my favorite scenes and being the nerd that I am I looked it up and couldn't resist posting it. {:

Darn, Jaimi, I am so disappointed, I though you had that part memorized! We love that movie. It always brings lots of smiles. And the really cool thing is that I see it at several stores for only $5.00. I think every house should have a copy of it! Don't you agree?

Jacoby looks adorable--I love his smile on the photo on the right! How cute is that. I don't think anyone could look at that and not smile right back!
