So Josh and I bought a grill a couple of weeks ago and we have had a lot of fun cooking on it . Our latest creation turned out very beautiful and colorful. We made lemon pepper chicken kabobs with bell peppers and brown and wild rice with pina colada's on the rocks yummy!
So I just happened to have the camera right by me when I was talking to Bentley. I was trying to get him to smile and maybe coo.... It worked. I actually caught his first smile on camera and it was huge! He even cooed and and started talking to me. It was adorable.
Also, here is a picture of Rykkar. I love my BIG boy sooo much! He is so cute. He calls everything his gun so that he can be like his Daddy. Here is a picture of his air rocket launcher "His Gun" he is ready to shoot bad guys.
This is a story for the books..... A couple of days ago Rykkar came in my room in the morning and wanted some fruit loops dry in a cup. So I got him some fuit loops in a cup and he got in bed with me and Bentley. Now as I watched him I could definately see the wheels turning in his head as he looked back and forth at his cup of fruit loops and at Bentley. I had to step out of the room for literally 15 seconds to get some clothes for Bentley and as I came back into the room I saw a single Fruit loop sticking to Bentley's lip. lol.... Apparently Rykkar thought he would share his cereal with his little brother. What a cute little boy, he tried to feed Bentley some fruit loops. I sat Rykkar down and explained to him that baby brother is too small to eat fruit loops and any other food and that he only eats his bottle. Rykkar replied back that the babies bottle was babies chocolate milk. And he had his cholcolate milk. So to Rykkar Bentley's formula is Chocolate milk for babies and he has his big boy chocolate milk. Kids do the darndest things!
So we got all of Bentley's enrollment done today so that he is insured and we got his dual citizenship birth certificates and went to make his appointment to get circumsized on the "German Economy" which basically means in Army terms, that we don't pay and tricare pays for it. Well I guess in Amberg, where I had Bentley, they don't believe that it is safe to do before the babies are 6 months because anesthesia. So we are going to Sulzbach on Monday and the lady told me that they DON'T use anesthesia!!!! What does she mean?! Are they crazy! That seems like torture.... She said they spray them with stuff to numb them but how is that going to help???? Now I am really nervous. It feels like I'm taking my precious 4 week old baby to get butchered and tortured.... I hope this goes alright....
So we are still trying to get settled in. Our stuff has arrived in Germany and is being delivered tomorrow!!! Yay!!! We are vey happy to see all of our belongings and have our familiar items around us again. I hate bare walls, so I will be especially happy to hang all of my pictures and decorations. Also just a little FYI, Josh and I are pretty sure our house is haunted lol.... We here people down stairs at night when we are sleeping and banging noises and noises like stuff is falling when we are trying to sleep. When we go down stairs to see what it is we can't find anything out of the ordinary. HA HA good old Germany. Also my Mom has come and gone. A week goes by so fast. She was such a big help and we really miss her. Hopefully her and Dad can come out soon. Here are a few pictures of Bentley and Rykkar. Rykkar thinks he's a soldier, he wants to be just like his Daddy, and Bentley is growing so fast!
A little about us... Josh is active duty in the U.S Army and we have been stationed in Vilseck, Germany. We will be here for 3 years and we are so excited to travel around Europe! Rykkar is just over 2 and growing up way too fast. Amanda is very pregnant due with Bentley Coupe the end of February 2009. Rykkar is very excited to be a "Big Brother" and he loves to give Bentley loves and kisses through mommys belly. He also loves to shine a flash light through mommys belly to make Bentley move.
