This is Jaxon's trick that he does with Grandma Fay. Every time she props him on the pillows like this he starts grinning and straining to sit up. He'll be doing it on his own in no time.

Here's Leo practicing his super hero moves. He's basically obsessed with fighting crime right now. Every day (and some days more than once) he asks me when I'm going to make more super hero costumes.

And just for fun, here's an old, but adorable, clip of Jay being ridiculous.

Today I had the most awesome conversation with Leo. He came into the bathroom right as I was getting out of the shower because going potty by himself is just way too scary. He said to me:

"Mom, how come that part of your tummy hangs down like that?"
Me: "Because I'm fat. And also because I've had 3 babies. Growing babies does sad things to your body."
Leo: "Is it ever going to go away?"
Me: "I sure hope so. That's why I'm eating special food right now and trying to be extra healthy, so my body can get smaller and work better."
Leo: "But what will happen to that part of your tummy when it gets smaller? Will it just go away?"
Me: "I hope so, but we'll have to wait and see."
Leo: "But mom, it's really big. I don't think it's going to go away. And mom, when Jaxon stops eating milk are your boobs going to go, you know, back up?"
Me: "Sadly, no. When I'm done nursing they will be even flatter and lower than they are right now."
Leo: "Whoa."
