He's Been Promoted!

table2

To celebrate his new "status" at the big kid table, I put John Bon Martin in his new Rockstar Stroller and took him for a stroll outside yesterday.

At first I just called him John Bon Martin and he wasn't sure if he liked it...

JM1

So I decided I would bust into Livin' On Prayer... "whoooa we're halfway there, livin' on a prayer..." He still wasn't sure.

JM2

"Take my hand- we'll make it I swear..." {can you tell at this point he's loving warming up to my rendition of Bon Jovi?}

JM3

And finally, he decided he LOVES my singing...

JM4

JM5

I was confident I made a Rockstar out of him, until I started the chorus all over again...

JM6

Next time, I'll try How Great Thou Art and refer to him as John Martin Luther, I think it will go over better.

Have a great weekend!

Love, Darby & John Bon Martin

been reading for awhile and I just have to comment! Little John Martin is so adorable! All of your little ones are just beautiful!

Jacci said...

Ha! Love it :) Somehow, whenever Sam and I are cranking out some DIY project late into the night, he winds up hollering out that song. Not like we listen to Bon Jovi regularly - not sure where it comes from.

Congrats to JM on his upgraded seating!

Love the picture of the three of them at their little table. So sweet!

ann said...

Hi Darby! I'm Ann. I went to AU (War Eagle!) and I was in interior design and remember Erika. Love your blog. Love your pictures. I have three kiddos as well-Ellie, Luke, and Andrew. It's a zoo, huh? Anyway, I noticed John Martin's big boy booster. We have the same one and during mealtime Luke used to always stick utensils, food, and whatever else down those holes in the seat. So...if you're missing something, check there!! :)

Christie said...

Those pictures are so cute! I am now going to have that song in my head for the rest of the night...

Jen said...

Wow--he is getting so big, and he *SO* reminds me of Paige in that first picture, where he's laughing and enjoying your rendition of Bon Jovi :) Your children are gorgeous.
I wanted to let you know,too, that I did pick up the "breakfast in bed" trays at Michael's the other week. I still need to get the paint pens, though, to write my girls' names on them :) Thanks again so much for the cool idea :)

Tori said...

i need to find a little table like that. the one i have is too small. where did you find? i'd like to look on craigslist but not sure what to search for.

Ok, you are going to think i am totally nutso, but I'm driving down the street in a neighborhood the other day and it was Big Junk Pickup time. So as I'm driving, I spy a little green kids table at somebody's curb. I practically squealed the brakes and I got out to look at it, and the first thing that came to my mind was, "This looks just like Darby's little kids' table! Score!" And so I put it in the back of my car and drove away! And now that I look at these photos of your little ones at their table, it really does look exactly the same!
