John Michael, Sutton, and Millie's Hip

Casen's cousin and aunt Sara came to visit from Edmond today. John Michael really thought Casen's name should be Methuselah, but thinks Casen's pretty cute despite a poor name choice by Aunt Kari and Uncle Chris.

John Michael did have a hard time figuring out the whole "eating" thing. Sara recently had twins, and had to bottle feed them for sanity's sake. So, John Michael has been very interested in watching the feeding. The following is a conversation that happened earlier:

John Michael: What's he doing?
Kari: I'm feeding him.
John Michael: That's not how my mommy does it. Are you sure you know what you're doing?

Of course, holding babies and watching them eat isn't a ton of fun for a 4-year-old. So, John Michael thought it would be fun to re-enact the Olympics. Chris and John Michael played imaginary baseball for a while, wrestled for a while, and then did some synchronized floor exercise. This was the grand finale.

Sutton and Casen are already good buddies. Sutton laid down with Kari while she was feeding Casen, and then she laid him down next to her. Don't worry Memaw - they were closely supervised!

How closely supervised? Here's a rare behind-the-scenes look at at how we've shot some of the pictures we've taken today. Sutton and Casen are about ready for the new to wear off so the paparazzi will let them sleep in peace. Pray we won't be back in the hospital this week replacing Millie's hip.

The picture of your "kids" resting together is one of the cutest things I have ever seen, and the Olympics shot was quite entertaining as well.

That's it! You better keep a real good eye on that Sutton, you just might find yourself opening up the back door to let the dog in and find that is been replaced with a disgruntled 11 year old beagle/sheltie mix with a bad hip of his own and a bad attitude to go with it!

I'm happy for you that your doggy loves your baby....well let's be real, I'm super jealous

i think the whole picture can be explained by the Sutton's eyes. Too funny.
