Adalyn's first real day!

I started teaching Adalyn the Pledge a week or so ago. No matter how many times we sound out the word "Liberty" it still comes out sounding like "Lizardpee" lol We will work on that!

I still feel SO bad for forgetting to go to Ansley's Student of the month Assembly LAST year! (thanks to Azure for taking pics for me)  I made sure to be there this year. It was so fun! I think it is great to acknowledge and celebrate good behavior!  I was choked up the whole time, excited for all the kids.  Most of them I don't even know, a few were friends of ours and for those I wasn't even able to cheer for them cause I had a lump in my throat.  We are so proud of Ansley and glad that she is a hard worker and a positve example to those around her!  We love you Ansley! Keep up the good work!

Baked Bread

Claire called earlier this evening to ask a few questions about baking bread from the recipe that I use. It has been so long and I had been thinking about doing it the last few weeks, I decided to bake bread right along with her.  We were on the phone with each other measuring, mixing and pouring.  I used wheat flour along with white flour, but Claire made her's with just white flour. 

my bread rising

We have both eaten some of our yummy bread and we are both wondering WHY we don't make it more often??? YUM!!!

Ty is 8 months old today!

Tired boy after church
He stands on his own but only for a few seconds
Happy boy even with a top tooth coming in!
Trying again! He stays up a little bit longer each time!
Ansley was trying to get him to walk to me...
I think she was a bit too far away for him to even try.
He just sat down when she let go.


Water still hadn't started
Ty was chillin in the shade in his carseat
Adalyn was trying to find some shade
Ansley survived the game!
Evan ref'd a couple of games after Ansley's was over
We all had a great time!
We WILL be setting up a canopy next time FOR SURE!!!!

He must REALLY be SWEET!!!

The mosquitoes are loving him! Poor boy!

The dark spot is a scab from bites he got last
week.  When he crawls he rubs them raw.
We put band aids on and they irritated his skin. 
This morning he had 4 new bites
and by the end of the day I have lost count.

I am so grateful that they are not bothering him.
He is still his happy self!

Ty's bath

Ty usually gets a quick bath in the sink or a shower with mom or dad. So he goes nuts in the big tub! By the time he was clean and out, the whole right side of my shorts were soaked!

Ty crawling

This was taken two weeks ago. It is fun to watch how Ty crawls without putting his left knee down. I guess he keeps it up to help sit down every few inches to check stuff out.

The last few days he has been using both knees to crawl. I will have to follow him around the house tomorrow to get an updated video. Ty is one busy guy!!!

Now we're swingin'!

I love Craigslist! There are some really great deals on there! I found a stroller that goes with Ty's carseat, a papasan infant seat and a papasan swing to match!

He liked it for a minute last night...then he decided he was starving!

He likes it much more today!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

I thought it would be fun for Adalyn and her friends to have a Valentine's Party. And I thought it would be fun to have brunch with the moms of her friends at the same time. So we did! And it was fun!!!

While the waffles were being made, the kids (with help from the moms) decorated their bags for their Valentines. For brunch, we had waffles, sausage, bacon, hashbrowns, fruit and waffles. YUM!...oh yeah...don't want to forget the CHOCOLATE!!!!
After brunch we frosted and decorated sugar cookies, the ate the extra frosting

Exchanging Valentines
Eating the candy from the Valentine
Claire was so kind to take pictures of all of the kids at the party and make these cute Valentine's for us to share with everyone!

Thank you! Thank you!!! To all the moms that came and helped this party/brunch be a success! We will have to do it again soon! maybe St. Patrick's Day or Easter?
