teeth, baseball, and wedgies

Here's just a bullet post of a few interesting things going on in the Powell household.

Charlie has just sprouted tooth number 8! Not eve
n 10 months old, he's got four on the bottom and four on the top right now. Here he is (reluctantly) showing them off.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We went to yesterday's Braves game with some friends from our Sunday School class. Alex and I have managed to go a few every year since we've lived here. Jack has gone a few times
and this was Melody and Charlie's first experience. Highlights include singing Take Me Out to the Ball Game at the seventh inning stretch and eating hot dogs.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Along with potty training comes the one hazard of wearing panties, wedgies. Melody experienced her first wedgie the other day.

She came running in the room saying, "Dere's some-pin wong wif me! Dere's some-pin wong wif me!"

"Where?" I ask.

"On mah fannie!" she said.

Sadly, Melody has been blessed with the Sim's bottom, so wedgies are just going to be a part of life for her!

You crack me up! Her poor little fannie! I try to imagine it in her cute little southern accent! I even read it to my husband because he thinks Melody is so cute! Yeah for baseball!!! Hope the kids had fun (and you are brave for taking all three!)

Sooooo cute! Makes me think of TigerBoy yesterday at the park. They had this slide that was all rollers. He was rubbing his behind each time after getting up!

Love the Red Sox shirt.......considering you were at a Braves game!

Hi Emily! Thanks for checking out my blog :). Wedgies are the WORST - my daughter (she's 7) complains ALL the time of them... DRAMA! Jealous you're so close to water!!!! :)

Ohmygoodness! That has to be the cutest wedgie ever! Eli is working on some teeth too....but he only has 6 right now! Cute pics from the baseball game. We are planning on taking the boys to a minor league game in a few weeks.

She is so cute, wedgy and all. Poor thing. We started training today, but I'm not sure my Caleb is ready. I love going to baseball games. We only have the minor league here but they just built a new stadium so we hope to make it.

Is it bad that I laughed about the wedgies? I love how she told you about it! Poor kiddo though. Love her tan lines - she is adorable! :)

Hi Emily,

I'm so far behind in checking up on you...by like 10 posts!! This was my favorite post by far because of Melody's wedgie. ;) When Mikayla first started wearing panties, she would always say to me "up the crack". Oi...Mikayla has been "blessed" with buns, too. Bummer deal.

I read that you're having a bit of a time with the potty training. Hang in there and if you feel like you need a break, that's OK. She'll get there...wedgie and all. ;)

Hope you're doing well!
