We have TEETH

and we are so excited!

A few days ago, two teeth finally popped out. He looks so darn cute with his baby teeth. We had a few bad days while we waited for them to come through but as soon as they did, Brody was back to his giggly self.

Warmer Weather

The weather here this past week has been beautiful! On Tuesday I took the kids outside to play and enjoy the sun shine!

For some reason Natalie loves to play on the deck. She will go up and down the steps all day long, picking up "pokey" balls from the yard and placing them into the pots that sit on the deck. With going up and down the steps comes the occasional boo boo!

Brody is loving being outside. He just wishes he could join his sister in all the fun!

Running around the yard.

Trying to see the puppy on the other side.

We had a lot of fun being outside! I am looking forward to being outside more often now that it is starting to warm up a bit.

Valentines Day

The kids and I had a great Valentines Day. Nothing special just a relaxing day hanging around the house baking, playing outside and doing a few crafts.

Natalie and I started the day as soon as Nathan left for work. We baked him a cake to surprise him when we came home for lunch! Natalie loves to help me bake. As soon as I say anything about it she is in the kitchen getting ready. Then it was time to make daddy a Valentines Day card! This was Natalie first time using glue. I think she did a good job. I ripped up some paper and let her paste it on a heart. Nathan was pleasantly surprised by his cake and card!

After lunch the kids and I went outside take advantage of this warm weather.

Later in the day we TRIED to have a mini Valentines Photo Shoot! We failed miserable!

The one decent picture that I got

and we are done!

It was a simple but great way to spend Valentines Day!

Brody {five months}

Wow five months! That is the age of my baby! It is hard to believe that you are five months today. They have flown by!

At five months you are weighing in at 17 pounds and wearing 6-12 months clothes! I'm looking forward to getting you out of your infant car seat!

At five months you are just now really interacting with us! You love to watch your big sister run around and you are eager to join her.

You love your feet. 90% of the time you are holding them or they are in your mouth. The same as your hands. We think you are teething because you chew on anything and everything you can get your hands on.

You are a great sleeper. You take 2 good naps, 2 cat naps and you sleep from 8:00 to 6:00!

You are a smiley baby and love to giggle. You are one of the giggliest baby I have ever came across! You love to smile and talk to your big sister.

We are practicing sitting up. I think you will have it figured out soon!

You have been the greatest addition of out family and your daddy, sister and mommy love you every much!

A Bunch of Randoms

  • The months of June through September are shaping up to be extremely busy for us and I'm really excited about it!
  • Nathan and I have decided that Natalie will start dance this coming Fall! I hope she likes it and helps her interact with other kid.
  • Only a month and a few days into the new year and I have already strayed from my planned reading List. Out of 3 books only 1 was on my Reading List. I really need to stay out of the book store and send Nathan in the get the book that is on my list.
  • I am really hating this cold weather. And what is worse is the sudden warm up to 65 and then the drop back to 40 the next day! That is equivalent to taking me to GiGi's and then telling me I can't have any is just plain MEAN!
  • I am having with draws from Target. I have not been to Target in over a week!
  • I am behind in laundry yet again. It not to lack of trying. I just can't remember to switch it out. It is out of sight our of mind attitude since our washer and dryer are in the garage. Plus it is really cold out there.
  • Nathan and I enjoyed a night out! We went to Conner's (yum) and then to Chocolate Crocodile (double yummy)
  • After a night of eating it is now back to Weight Watchers (lets not count the pizza I had yesterday).
  • Saturday night was Brody's first night away. I enjoyed getting to sleep in but missed both the kids! Our house is way to quite without them here!

Project Life: Week 4

Sunday, January 23rd: This was how found Brody when I turned back around from being at the sick making him a bottle. He was sitting up in his bouncy seat!!

Monday, January 24th: Nathan bought Brody a Rainforest jump-a-roo!! Brody has loved every minute of being in it! He just jumps away in it! It has been one of our best purchases so far plus we bought it for only $30! Got to love Craiglist!!!

Tuesday, January 25th: NO PICTURE :(

Wednesday, January 26th: Natalie wanted to help feed Brody lunch! She loves helping me take care of him during the day!

Thursday, January 27th: We stayed at home for most of the week just hanging out and getting a few things done around the house. Brody had some tummy time and he still hates it. He will usually last a few minutes until he is over it.

Friday, January 28th: It was a beautiful day today!! After doing some running around in town, we took Natalie outside to play for a bit. She wanted to play on her lil quad but unfortunately it was not charged so she sat on it instead!

Saturday, January 29th: It was another beautiful day outside. We ran into town a did a little shopping at Hobby Lobby with Amy then it was home for naps we decided to go and run around the backyard for a bit.

It is hard to believe January is over. This was my first month to attempt Project Life. I am so glad I decided to start doing it this year. So far I only missed four days out of the entire month. Not to bad for my first month!!!
