The real reason I have kids

Merrick is really turning into a funny a little boy and I have been able to catch some of his funniest moments on film. So here is the real reason I have kids. Enjoy!

Last weekend we were getting ready for our Elder's Quorum Party and our friends came over for the pre-dinner festivities. Well, while I was getting things ready in the kitchen my good friend Elissa disappeared with Merrick in the bathroom only to return with Merrick looking like this. His very first mohawk. We took him like this to the party and his hair was such a hit. I'll have to do his hair like this again sometime.

Merrick got into a fight with a blue highlighter last week and as you can see lost, poor kid! He would've kept going had I not screamed when I saw him because I was in a state of shock. If you look closely you'll see that he even has blue ink on his lips. To top it off it didn't wash completely off for at least 2 days.
Oh this is a good one. Last week it rained here in Merced and like all rainy days you have to find innovative ways to entertain your kids. So I came across this 80's headband and put it on Merrick as a joke but he looked so funny I had to take some pictures. The best part is that the rest of his outfit was totally 80's too so the headband just completed the whole look.
Merrick had a blast when we went back to Carpinteria to visit family a few weeks ago. We went to a pancake breakfast for a friend's school and they had free gymnastics there with tumbling mats, balance beams and a trampoline. He loved it so much he kept going back. This smile is hard to get on camera so I was happy when I caught it on film.
Merrick loves to be naked. He knows how to take off his clothes and diaper now so sometimes I'm a little surprised when I go into his bedroom after nap time to find him unclothed and pointy to his you know what saying "this". I can't believe I'm going to have another boy!!!

These are hillarious. Kids are so funny sometimes. It makes up for the frustrating times. Ashlynn loves taking her diaper off too, today she took her diaper off and then went pee on our BED while smiling right at me. The mohawk looks great.
