Sitting and Crawling

Calvin is so close to crawling!  He now sits on his own, but when he sees a toy he wants he lunges for it going onto his stomach and reaching and worming towards it.  If we put him up on his knees he will rock back and forth.  I am already getting mentally prepared for when he takes off.  I have all of the gates on stand by hahaha.  Safety first is my policy! 

We sold our retro 1950's red dining table.  I was so sad to see it go, but it didn't make sense trying to cram 5 or more people at that table.  I sold the table on offer up, it went within a few hours of being posted.  After trying a lot of different ways to sell it I finally tried that app and I was shocked it worked.  I was ready to just give it to the good will which I really didn't want to do.  

We now have a new table from Ikea.  Of course this table isn't funky and cool, but its practical and now we can all sit and eat together without being cramped.  Plus its pretty and light colored so it really lightens up our kitchen.  It is taking me forever to make the chairs.  I decided that we had to cover the material seats with vinyl so we could wipe them off.  I have 3 seats made and today I will make the next 3! 

We are starting a new preschool for Emmett that is closer to our house.  We are starting with the mommy and me program and if all goes well next year he can do the preschool without me there.  We went for our first day yesterday and I had no idea I couldn't bring Calvin with us! So we are going to have to find someone to watch him and start next week.  Yesterday it felt like everything went wrong, but today we are moving forward with a new and hopefully better day =)

Park Time

Last week we met our friends at the park.  It was such a nice day!  Emmett loved running around and playing on all the different play grounds.

 The sea saw/ teater toter was a big hit.  They make them much safer now days.

 Calvin had fun rolling around.

 Here is Calvin's cute outfit from John and Aunt Dede.  It fits him perfect right now so I have him wearing it as much as possible.
The boys!

Easter 2017

We had Easter at our house this year.  In the morning the kids got up and we had a small 3 egg hunt to the baskets. Emmett loved getting his Easter stuff.  Calvin of course had no idea what was happening, but he still got stuff from the Easter bunny.  Around noon all the fun started.  Everyone arrived and the eating began hahha.  We had a egg hunt for the kids and this year they each got a specific color egg to hunt for.  Emmett was getting only the green eggs.  This was a great idea Lacey came up with, because that way you can hide the eggs a certain way for each age.  The one year old Charlotte had all her eggs on the grass and the older kids had their eggs hidden in trees.  Also we could stuff the eggs with what we wanted our kids to have.  It worked out great!

 Morning hair!

 Calvin's first Easter! 6.5 months old!

 This cake was awesome.  You take a store bought cake (that is plain or lemon or angel food) and you cut it in 3 layers then you mix cream cheese and lemon curd together whipped really well.  Then you spread the mixture on each layer and and put berries on the cream then stack it all together and do the same on the top.  It was soo good!

On Saturday Grant turned 35!!! We had a small get together at rock n brews. Because we are old now the whole thing was over by 8pm haha. With kids you have to be home for bed time.

April So Far

How is time moving by so fast?  We are already on the 11th and I feel like it was just the first!  I just spent the last hour looking through my photos on my computer from the last 9 years.  What stood out to me the most was that every photo I felt so judgemental about at the time it was taken looked great to me now haha.  The other thing that stood out was that I use to take a ton of pictures of everything we did. Now I find I don't take even half the amount I use to take and that is bad, because it brings back so many great memories to have the pictures, even if I never print them out.

Here is what we have been up to...
 Lots of playing at the park

 Cleaning toys from the rain
 Park day with our class

 Easter egg hunt with the class
