Pootie is 13

Sunday was Pooties birthday.  Sweet baby boy of mine.  We thought we were going to be a great day – and it did start out as that….

Hubby made us breakfast and then headed out to referee a soccer game.  Pootie, Rowdy and I headed out to look for “the” birthday gift…with Pootie that means shoes.  He has a shoe thing.

Not sure where that came from.

Hubby came home and picked us up, along with Crash (Lola was at my mom and daddy’s) and we headed out for Pootie’s soccer game that started at 3…

And Pootie played fabulous – he plays defense – but his coach even moved him to offense – ya know, that old adage about people scoring on their birthday. (no vulgar comments or thoughts please ;0) )  anywho – Pootie did score.  He looked awesome – they won…and then the game was over. 

And my sweet baby boy was walking towards me with tears in his eyes.  Honestly, I thought, did I miss him getting hurt?  couldn’t even imagine why, after scoring, playing terrific and winning he would be crying…..

And then he told me….HEADACHE.  The turkey had played the whole game with a headache and he was miserable and on the verge of throwing up.  All he wanted was for me to get him to the car before he threw up in front of everyone.  It was the most pitiful thing ever.

I got him to the car, hubby was already there putting baby and chairs in….and Pootie just sprawled out on the parking lot.   Got him home, Hubby dragged him upstairs and he threw up.  Glad for once Hubby was home to experience the whole thing with me.  It was bad.

Needless to say, we had to cancel the dinner plans at Nakato’s.  So we went on Monday night….here we are, as is the tradition.  If ya look close, Pooite is holding  a picture of Uncle – since he has always gone with us, we thought it only appropriate that he be there in spirit. 

So here he is with Ninni and Poppa, my mom and Daddy.


And here is Crash and Poppa


all the kids with my mom and dad….


Rowdy getting a bit of cake…yummy!!! 


And a very bad picture that a waiter took of all of us – but you get the idea…

Well – if you guessed this order, you guessed right..

Crash, Lola, Pootie, Rowdy,Henry,  Pootie

Like the way I put Henry in there.  I’d put Shelby in, but I don’t have a baby picture of her……Sorry. 

So, really, depending on who Rowdy is with, is who he looks like… this picture below, for me, is what I see when I see Rowdy, it’s Pootie at one year old….

Of course, we could always put him in drag and he would look like Lola at one year!!!! 


But sometimes he smiles like Crash (on the right, Pootie on the left..)


One thing that is for sure, they look like OUR kids…and not to brag, I think we make beautiful bebe’s

I totally agree! They all have their own look but they all look alike too. Mine are the same way.
