In 2 days, this will be my view!

Yes...On Wednesday, Brian and I are traveling back to the Riveria Maya for a much needed vay-cay sans kiddos!  I am soooo excited to eat, drink, and relax in the sun!  Mexico here we come!

Family pictures!

A few weeks ago, we had family pictures taken.  Both of the kids cooperated pretty well, which helped with my family picture taking anxiety a bit.  Every since Avery was little, she has given me such a rough time when it comes to photos.  Now that she is older, she is happy to strike a pose on command, but it still seems to stress me out.  I am pretty happy with the way they turned out, and the photographer that I went with.  Here are some of my favs:

10 months!

Look who is 10 months old!  My favorite little boy!!!!  He turned 10 months on the 13th, but I took these pics on Sunday afternoon.  Here is a few things my little guy is up to:
  • Usually drinks about 6 oz of formula at a time

  • Wearing size 3 diapers

  • Wearing size 9-12 months clothes

  • Still not quite crawling, but he may be getting close.  He just HATES being on his belly!  He can get up on all fours, but not too much happens after that point, lol.  Oh, well.  He will soon :)

  • Has found his voice over the weekend, and it is loud!  If he is really happy, he kind of shouts.  Especially to his big sis.

  • Finally LOVES eating.  His favorites are yogurt, mexican rice, mums mums, and the little cruchy things.

  • He can drink out of a sippy cup, but can't quite hold it on his own.

  • Sleeps through the night occasionally, but usually wants to wake and eat around 3-4.

  • Goes to sleep super easy in his crib by about 6:45pm.

He LOVES Mexican rice!

The books of the Old Testiment

Avery and her classmates have been working so hard on learning the books of the Old Testiment for the past few weeks.  Last sunday, she finally allowed me to video her!  I am soooo proud that she could do this, I think it's kinda amazing!

Easter Sunday 2013

Ok, so I am FINALLY getting around to blogging about our Easter!  Sorry....I feel like the week flies by super fast.  Plus I have really been really trying to get back in a good gym routine, so by the time I settle down at night, I am out!  Anyways, enough about that...on to Easter.  The Easter bunny left baskets on the porch for the kiddos, just like last year.

And it was also so neat watching Avery show Brady everything.  She literally showed him everything that was in his basket before even touching hers.  She is such a great big sis :)

and I'm not sure why, but her legs look SUPER long here!

This pic is a little out of order, but here is Brady's first Easter outfit!  I know it was probably a bit much, lol, but he only has his first Easter once, right?

The kids hanging out in Daddy's boat while Mommy was getting ready

We then headed over to Bebe's house to visit and have lunch with the family.

 This boy LOVED Easter dinner!

Happy (belated) Easter Everyone!

Good Friday

For the past few years, we have dyed easter eggs and let the kids swim on Good Friday, and this year was no exeption :)  I did get a little nervous because it has been so cold for this time of the year, but we heated up the pool the week prior, so it would be nice and warm for all of the kiddos.  The weather turned out to be perfect, and the little girls had a great time dying eggs and swimming.

the only boy

 Time to color eggs!

On Saturday, look who discovered food!  He loved it!  Maybe now he will start to gain a little weight :)

On Saturday, we also went to church services and the egg hunt at Woodlands Church

 Brady was much more interested in the eggs than posing for mom....

Egg scramble

My little girl looks so big here!!!

And then time for another dip in the pool!

This was actually Brady's first time in the pool, and he absolutely loved it!!!  His little legs went CRAZY!  I think he is gonna love the water as much as his big sister does :)
