3 Years Old

I can hardly believe it has been 3 years since I laid eyes on him...

...this tiny sweet bundle...

...turned curious, fun-loving toddler...

...turned loving, protective big-brother...

...turned funny, smart BIG BOY!
(who promptly after blowing out his candles declared  
"it's MY birthday" to everyone around.  Yes, I guess he really is three)

I could not be more proud of this precious son of mine.  His sincerity and wit surprise me every day and I am cherishing every detail of who he is and who he is becoming.  I cannot believe how blessed I am to get to be his mommy!  We love you Charlie, Happy Birthday!

Sprucing up for Spring (& 9 months old!)

We've been spending a lot more time outside recently and decided it was time to clean up the yard (ie get rid of the weeds!) and plant some flowers for spring.  

Charlie had a blast "helping" his Daddy and riding back and forth on the wheelbarrow.

Norah just sat looking cute like she always does.  She's 9 months old now!  Still no crawling, but I'm convinced it's not because she can't, but that she doesn't want to get her hands and knees dirty.  She'll wait until she can walk thankyouverymuch.

After I took these pictures, I thought I'd help a little with the planting.  Not a good idea- soon after this photo shoot, Norah decided to see what grass tastes like and I frantically tried to get it out of her mouth while getting my dirt covered hands all over her face and pretty white shirt.  No choking occurred, but bath time came early that day!

Its been so great to get outside and have some new plants to care for.  Hoping they make it through our hot hot summer.  Happy Spring!
