Another morning “project”

You can only paint and color some days. And some days you have to bring out the big guns. By that I mean none other than these . . . yup, strawberries, chocolate and sprinkles!

Maddie and I were making some of these for our friends and one of Donny's co-workers. Maddie was in charge of the sprinkles (duh) and I was in charge of the chocolate . . .

Can we talk about how when I ask her to smile at me this is what she gives me . . . seriously??!!DSC_1336

And, obviously since it is fruit after all that we are working with, someone had to sample our creations too.

Poor D, he doesn’t know what he’s missing out on.

Trot Trot to Boston

We have been looking forward to this trip for so long, we even created a count down for it at home. What we had not been looking forward to was a 11+ hour car ride with the kiddos and Rick – Donny stayed home to work, he’ll come up with us when we go back in August. So the car ride, honestly, it could have been soooo much worse! We timed our stops for food/fuel/potty breaks all at the same time so it really worked out great. I think when we got there Rick was the most excited to get out of the car, ha! Our trip home was even better on the way up which was awesome! When we got there we were greeted by four days of 90/100 degree temperatures. Needless to say we spent those at the pool. We cant wait to go back in few weeks!!
This picture makes me wet my pants EVERYTIME!!!

D 5 Months

Holy cow, time really does fly by faster with the second child. Next month you will be six months – 1/2 a year old, yikes!DSC_1366
Well D you continue to be a big guy. I took to you to the doctor at about 4.5 months because you had a temperature and you weighed in at 18lbs 5oz, so I’m guess by your next appointment you will be close to 19! For the record Maddie was 18lbs 9oz when she was 1!
You are rolling over all the time now and you pretty much sleep on your belly. You can roll from your belly to you back but not as much. You just rest up on your elbows too during tummy time.DSC_1349
You are all smiles and giggles. It is so funny, its like you stored it all up during those first months where you just screamed, and now you are so happy! You smile whenever someone comes and talks to you and you giggle at the most simplest of things – even me just wiggling your legs while changing your diaper.DSC_1370
You are loving solids! For fruits you’ve had bananas, pears, and applesauce. For veggies you’ve had sweet potatoes, squash, peas and carrots. You love it all! Still a little messy sometimes but you love to eat.
You are still eating ~32oz on top of the food you eat (fruit in the am and veggie in the pm). You have your bottles when you wake up, usually around 6/615 then again at 1030/11, 1, 5 and 7:30. You go to bed after your last bottle at 7:30 and sleep till about 5:30 or 6. You are in such a great routine now where we can just lay you down and you go to sleep!
You love to babble and chat with your sister it is adorable. She can make you laugh by doing her little head tilt and you love to listen to her sing you songs.
You are doing a great job sitting on your own. We still put a couple pillows around you for padding but you are a pretty sturdy guy!
Oh, no teeth yet buddy. You drool and gnaw on everything like there might be something there but not yet. If you are anything like your sister you still have another 7 months before they’ll appear.
You are such a lovable, snuggly “little” baby. We have gotten into such a great routine its like you have always been here! We love  you little D and cant wait to see what the next month has in store!

Happy Dada Day, early!

While I’m not posting this till Fathers Day, I couldn’t wait to see the pictures! Maddie has worked so hard on her painting for Donny’s office – its so cute. And I just laugh because its just tons of handprints which until about a few months ago she hated doing! We also got Donny a pair of tickets (so Rick can go too) to the Greenbrier Classic on Sunday – the final round!

(In the words of Maddie,)
Dear Dada,
Thanks for being sooo good. I love you sooo much. I love to watch soccer golf with you. You make really good noodles. I like to come in the bathroom and help you shave and shower. I come upstairs to help you get dressed, you wear belt and tie.
I love you sooo much (insert arm motion)

(In the words of D)
Dear Dada,
Thanks for feeding me my bottle. Thanks for feeding me real food. Why have you been holding out on me?

Maddie’s painting reveal . . . it took us about 3 days to create, and the canvas is about 3’x3’, its awesome!
