10 things I love about Henry



in no particular order . . .
  1. his smile that peeks out behind his pappy
  2. when he snores
  3. the way he snuggles my neck if he's really sleepy
  4. his giggles
  5. when he talks or sucks his lips in and hums
  6. when he sucks his thumb (shh, don't tell anyone)
  7. the determination in his eye when he's chewing on my hand
  8. the way he's always sticking his touge out but only on the left side of his mouth
  9. how darn excited he gets when he's trying to grab something that he knocks it away
  10. after nusing and he gets that milk drunk smile as if to say "thanks mom"

10 things I love about Katie


in no particular order . . .

  1. she introduces herself to virtually everyone! "Hi my name is Katie. What's your name? Nice to meet you."
  2. the way she talks about her friends. Although she's never been to a daycare, she seems to be able to make friends very easily. So when it's time to leave the playground / play date, she likes to talk about the friends she played with
  3. when she breaks out into song at the grocery store
  4. how polite she is. I take it for granted when we're at home but I always notice and appreciate it when we're out and about.
  5. it's July and she's still God blessing Santa Clause! (I think he really made an impact on her and has a lot to live up to!)
  6. her rock collection. She HAS to pick at least one up from everywhere we go!
  7. how much she loves her brother (at least for now!)
  8. the way her voice gets real squeeky when she pretends
  9. the way she runs. Anyone who has seen it, knows she has more hip and elbow action than her feet can keep up with!
  10. when she wants to snuggle and says, "I love you mommy!"

Happy 4th of July





Notice the dark clouds behind the fireworks! We got poured on! Thankfully they went ahead with the show between showers and we got home early.

I Survived!

Well I survived! I've made it 30 days as a single, stay at home mother of two! With only a short period of temp. insanity during the first few weeks. Scott comes home today and I couldn't be happier.
(not a picture of us but sure looks like it! HA!)

In the summertime, when the weather is hot . .

go swimming with friends,


eat popcicles,


run around half naked,


and don't forget to share your toys with your brother!
