Around the House

Here are some photos of us just hanging around the house.

 My 2 big blue eyed boys!

 The cute pants that Teresa and Grandad got Calvin.
Watching the current favorite show, Mickey and the Roadster Racers.
 Last weekend we went to the lake and walked around using our new double stroller.
 Calvin is a big boy now sitting in his high chair.
 Emmett got a hair cut just in time for his birthday in a few days.
 Here he is modeling his Valentines glasses he got from a friend at class.
Emmett is currently getting over a cold so we have had to postpone his tiny family party to next weekend =(   I think Grant and I are more disappointed than he is hahaha.

Charlotte's First Birthday Party

Last weekend was Charlotte's first birthday.  It's so hard to believe that she is already one, it feels like she was just born and we were visiting Kristen in the hospital.  Charlotte is such a cute little girl and so happy all the time, at least every time I see her.

Emmett had the best time on their play center in the backyard.  He would not get off the swings haha.

Happy Valentine's Day

We had a fun Valentine's Day.  Emmett had his weekly class on Valentine's Day, so we had a pot luck there and everyone gave each other Valentines cards.  Of course I didn't read the calendar till about 30 minutes before the class, so we had to rush to make the cards and come up with something in 10 minutes time to take to the class with us!  Talk about unprepared hhahaha.

After the class Emmett and I went to the store and got some goodies for Grandma and Papa and Grant.  It was fun for him to be involved with the shopping and gift giving.
Grant and I just stayed home for V day and didn't really do anything haha.  We watched the news and laughed at all the craziness that is going on with the Trump administration.  Talk about free entertainment!

Rolling Along

We are just rolling along, a lot of the days around here feel the same haha.  I end a day thinking wow that was just like yesterday.  I guess what I am getting at is its hard to do things with little kids.  Right now Emmett is going through a stage where he wants to do everything himself because he knows best.  He doesn't want anyone telling him what to do and on top of that he wants to tell you what to do hahaha.  This would be funny if it wasn't so freaking annoying.  

I will make deals with him when we are going somewhere and sometimes it works.  For instance if we go shopping I will tell him if you are really good and stay in the cart the whole time I will give you a treat when we get home.  Once in a while this will actually work, but a lot of the time he will insist to get down which will end in a screaming match with everyone crying.
Just yesterday at the super bowl party, Grant tried to hug/ pick him up and he didn't want that so he threw his hands back (he was holding some toys) and the metal jet he was holding slammed into the outer corner of Grant's eye making him bleed.  I said thank goodness it didn't take your eye out.  I keep telling myself, this is just a stage, we will get through this.  I just hope this stage passes quickly because its testing our patience.

 Today its raining!  Its good we are getting rain, but I also don't know what to do because we are stuck inside.

 Here is a pic of me and a pic of Calvin at 4 months.  We look a lot alike.  I will have to find more pictures.
 When Emmett wakes up from napping its the worst.  I feel like leaving ahahhaha.  He will scream and fight with everything for about 15 minutes to an hour long.  This is a perfect example of him laying on the floor screaming and yelling at everyone.

 Smiley guy!
Here is one activity we do.  Line up the cars.

Knotts

Last week we went to Knotts Berry Farm.  This was the first time Emmett and Calvin have ever been to an amusement park.  Emmett loved it!  There is a huge little kid area so Emmett could go on rides all by himself.  I was a little nervous, but once I realized he wasn't going to jump up or fall out I was fine.

Calvin at 4 Months

Calvin is now 4 months old!  Time is going by so fast, but I am loving every stage.  This time around the first few months flew by and seemed so easy.

Currently Calvin is
  • Rolling around! He can scoot and half roll all over the place.  I set him down in one direction and come back and he is completely flipped.
  • He loves to eat
  • Cooing and laughing
  • Smiling 
  • He loves to make eye contact with everyone then give a big smile
  • He loves to stand!  He locks his legs and won't bend them.
  • Emmett gets a little jealous once in a while and will lay on Calvin.  Calvin will just smile at him or laugh, which always makes Emmett back off.
