Hanging at Gaga's House

Last weekend we went to visit the family. The boys had a great time, Ethan especially. We went to the park, had lunch at Chick-fil-a, and had fun just playing at the house.

I guess since he's the oldest he thinks he's in charge. It's a reasonable assumption if you ask me. :)

Macy, we don't play on the table.

Catching up on the some light reading with Auntie Crissa







I found this guy all around the park. He's a very active dog.
Everyone had a great time and we can't wait for them to come visit us next weekend to play.

Fighting the Storm season

We have had so much rain these past few weeks. It's amazing. It has been a long time since we have seen this much rain here. The flowers are blooming beautifully because of it. We have only been able to play 2 of Ethan's t-ball games so far. 

In between showers I was able to get the boys in the backyard to play with the water table. This was a new experience for Brady. They were both entertained for at least an hour until it was time for me to go make dinner. Needless to say, I will be getting it back out as soon as we have another break in the storms this weekend.

Playing nicely together
Love these fleeting glimpses of babyhood. Ugh, those cheeks

Almost got it


A pretty common face around here!
Baby blues

Can't keep his tongue in his mouth.

Those eyes
It wasn't long before these two came to tackle me.
We have also been able to get out and take some bluebonnet pictures. I hope to have those up in a day or two. These boys are keeping me busy. And it seems midnight is the only time to get anything done around here. But, look at those 2 sets of eyes to talk me into playing instead of cleaning. It will still be there tomorrow I guess. For now, I will keep playing because as I look at these pictures I see that somehow Ethan looks like he has grown 2 feet overnight. My heart aches! Extra hugs and kisses tomorrow...and he might be able to talk me into that extra book next time.

Happy 10 months Brady!

Ack! Only 2 months until this little guy is 1! How have these last 10 months flown by so quickly.


He is still a happy boy most days. However, teething has been an evil in our house. He now has 3 teeth, right bottom and top right lateral came in this month. In between his bouts of teething torture he is happy. 

Getting him to sit still these days is impossible. Diaper changes are a joy. He is always on the go. 







He pulls himself up on everything, including his brother. And he does a lot of cruising around the furniture.




Baby gates have become a necessity in the house.



This little one is so active. He's going to be tough to keep up with when he starts walking!

My little superhero

So I found a couple of superhero pictures on Pinterest a few weeks ago. With Ethan's love of wearing a cape everywhere somedays, and his friend, Lucas, requesting his own cape, I was inspired to give it a go. So last weekend we went over to Robert's parking structure over the weekend. They aren't exactly what I had in mind. But, they really show the fun they had and I think they turned out pretty great. Ethan has already asked if he can have them printed to hang on his wall in his room. These two are joined at the hip lately. They are pretty adorable together!











Blastball fun

Ethan started blastball this week. Oh my goodness he was too adorable! For those that don't know, Blastball is the precursor to Teeball. Each player gets to bat twice and run first. The bag makes a fun noise when they hit it. All of the boys had a lot of fun...for about the first 15 minutes. It's a good thing the games are only 20 minutes. Coach Robert/Daddy did a great job wrangling five 3 year olds with the help of Lucas' dad, Andrew.

Waiting their turn to bat.

Giving it his all!

Came back to hit the base

Just as interested in climbing the fence

It's our favorite time of year. Baseball season is upon us!

Easter Celebrations begin

We started our Easter celebrations a week early this year. Last week we had our egg hunt with our playgroup. All of the kids had a great time hunting eggs followed by lunch and playing at the park.



This was the end of the playdate and the little one was tired. No more smiling at that point.





I also went to Red Oak last weekend to play with Gaga, Auntie Crissa, and Macy. 

This is what happens when you leave him for too long.













How adorable are these kids!! 

Glad we are finally getting some warm weather!
