Sexy Boops

No, that's not a typo in the title. It's referring to my little model in the sexy red snow boots. He wants to wear them every day. First thing in the morning he comes downstairs and says, "boops." I don't mind him wearing them all the time (I'll probably be the mom who lets him wear swim shorts with snow boots), but I did finally hide them because I got tired of him taking shoes on and off all day long. This is what I hear nonstop: boops, soos, boops, soos, boops, soos (boots & shoes). He can take them off, but then he needs help putting on the other ones. The Mr. Rogers routine was driving me batty.

These pictures are of Lance trying to look at the back of his Elmo undies. He was like a puppy chasing his tail. And I especially love those chunky little legs! :)

Here's a Daily Dose of David for ya. David: Lance gets his thick thighs from you, Rachel. Now I'm aware that my thighs are not slender. In fact I am very aware that they are thick, but couldn't that just be something that is never talked about? I wouldn't mind him saying that Lance has my eyes or chin or something, but my "thick" thighs? Of course we know where he gets his thighs, but do we have to say it out loud? What was my response when he made this statement? First, I laughed out of shock that he just commented on the size of my thighs, and then I called him some names that I can't repeat on my blog--except jerk, I did call him that. :) And then David says, "What? It's the truth." I'm wondering if he is unbelievably brave or just exceptionally stupid. Okay, in all honesty, I'm really not offended by David's statements. Actually, David informed me afterward that he is happy that Lance got my thighs. Um, I had a good laugh & left it at that. As for my big jerk of a husband....I still love him and the crazy things he says & does.

Lance looks so good in his RED BOOTS and UNDIES combo! That is the cutest thing ever!...the "thick thighs" however, are probably from the SHELLEY blood. Tyler AND Alexa both have them. They are wonderful!

oh, and I can't ever get Alexa to wear jeans...they don't make girl jeans to fit her legs :(

Lovin' those sexy boops and chunky thighs! As for David, I would have punched him. Men are so clueless sometimes... did he have a death wish? Remember, we're not fat, we're just big-boned!

I LOVE thick thighs, and David is just jealous he got stuck riding a chicken ;) Squeeze Lance's legs for me, and give Luke a kiss. Love ya and miss ya more!

Crystal said...

love these pics! Your boys are awesome & adorable! I just love seeing their personalities come out to play!

As for David, I'm shooting death glares at him-seriously, doesn't he realize you fix his food and could "fix" him for good-silly man! You are such a good sport, I probably wouldn't have laughed very much. But that just goes to prove your a better person than me-no surprise there!

Those are some killer boots. My two-year-old gets obsessed over clothing items, too (right now it's her flower that goes in her hair). And wow, about David. "Think, process, then speak." I chant that to Jeep all the time.

Hmm, boops and thighs. What a racy post! he he. I think he is styling and I think your hubby is super brave!

Love all the cute pictures of Little Lance, he is so adorable!
For the chunky thigh thing...you just had two babies and it is about the last thing that goes back to normal...just wait until he is middle aged, then the guy gets the thigh and tummy thing and most of the time it doesn't go away! I always did think the husband should have been able to have at least one of the babies, so the could just understand! You are a good sport! It takes all this stuff to make the world go round! You are beautiful! Keep laughing!
Love ya!
Gram.

Oh David, David....what were you thinking? Oh that's right...nothing. You know that book "What men know about Women" still full of empty pages. They learn, eventually...and I still love our Daily Dose of David. He is a good guy, just clueless like the rest of that gender. As for little Lance, luv the boops and chubby legs, but mostly his contagious smile. Kisses from Grandma!!!!xoxoxoxoxoxoxo

I laughed at your post (not the David pard, what was he thinking?) Anywho I was with my friend shopping the other day and we decided that women were born with a gene that makes us LOVE shiny things and chubby babies :)

Love the posts Rachel.

I guess I should check my spelling before I post.

That would be not the David P-a-r-t!

Those are some sexy boops! Gauge is like that with his light up fire engine shoes. Luckily he can take they are velcro so I don't have to help. As for David, Didn't his mother Teach him. Thankfully my husband know that NO ONE talks about my thighs. Not even me. Unless he is lying and tells me how slim and muscular they are looking. Then its ok.

Jenny said...

Sweet boops! Ya gotta love kids and shoos and their love for them! As for your husband, he probably deserved to be called everything you called him for that comment:) Oh did I say that out loud?
