A Word in Pictures

Ok, so here is the thing. I DID THE WRONG WORD FOR THIS MONTHS POST! HA! Seriously, where is my brain?!?! This month was supposed to be "Moments" and I was really excited about that one.. but maybe because of the lovely spring weather we have had I thought it was NEXT month's word..."new"! I wish I had a good excuse or explanation but I don't...so just bear with me ;-) Maybe next month I will do "moments"....

 I love spring. I love how the earth just proclaims newness, freshness, and life. We have been so thankful to be able to enjoy the beautiful sunshine outside together. We have already been on many walks and visited several parks and are looking forward to more in the months to come!

Something about a sweet little boy in a hat just makes my heart melt! 

 (Oh, Ev... this face...lol)

One of his favorite things to do is "blow raspberries" (which that term doesn't even make sense to me, but I can't very well describe it another way in text ;)) and this is the cute little duck face that comes with it! Love it!

Go check out my sister's amazing photos and see what "moments" she captured this month... HERE

Monthly Kiddo Update

Evelyn is 2 years & 2 months!
Oh, Evelyn. She is such a character... this month I will just share a handful of her famous quotes that I have recorded over the month. This girl seriously says some FUNNY things.
-Her new line that she says all the time is "Ooooh, that sounds cool!" or "Ooooh, that sounds fun!"
-We were outside playing in the snow a few weeks ago and she came up to me, points to her feet and says, "My tootsies are ICE!"
-When we went to the doctor's office (for her first ear infection) she kept begging me to see the "alligator". I could tell she was getting frustrated that I didn't understand, but soon figured out she meant elevator. She then begged the doctor to "please listen to my heart beep!". (Oh, and on the way down the "alligator" she pushed the emergency call button...talk about embarrassing!)
-She will also add the word "actually" in every now and then. As in (out of nowhere), "Actually, I do want some Easter candy."
-She says funny things to Hunter... like "How are you doing, sweetie pie?!" or if he is crying, "What's wrong, bubby? Why are you crying? What's wrong, honey?!"
-This morning she gets down after breakfast and says "Sooo...what can I watch on TV?". It made me laugh.
-Also today, she fell down in the kitchen and bumped her shin...she started crying and said "I need medication to feel better!" haha..yes medication, not medicine.
She keeps me laughing, that's for sure!

Hunter is 8 months!
-Hunter also had his first ear infection this month--no fun!
-He now has 4 teeth, two top & two bottom.
-He waves bye-bye and says "da-da!"..though I don't think he knows what it means yet ;-)
-The most recent development is he is now crawling! It's more of an army-crawl, inch worm style, but he can get from point A to point B very quickly. Especially if point B is an electrical cord. He seriously spots ANYTHING with a string/cord and crawls over to it like his life depends on it. I guess I need to go back and make sure everything is baby proof!
-He loves to laugh... for our anniversary my dad sent us flowers & a balloon.... I just let him hold the balloon and I have never seen him laugh so hard. Just looking at the balloon made him crack up...too funny!

Happy Anniversary!!

This morning at breakfast we were telling Evelyn how it was our anniversary...I told her that this day 4 years ago Mommy & Daddy got married! She says "I get married, too!". So I said 'Well, Mommy is married to Daddy...who are you going to marry?" She looked around...and said "Umm....Hunter!". Ha :-)
She asks all the time to look at our wedding album that is on the coffee table, so we looked at it together this morning...such fun memories to relive, so I thought I would share some of my favorite pics!
