6 years

I would just like to say Happy Anniversary to my Hubby & bestest friend!
I love you more today than I did yesterday, and I'm sure that is still less than I will love you tomorrow.
You are a rarity among men, and I'm a blessed girl!
I can't thank you enough for all that you do for me and our little family. 
I appreciate, admire and love you with all that I have.
You are an amazing husband and father.
Here's to our next year together!
I love you, babe!

Tomato Plant

McKenzie and her Opa planted an acorn.... or so we thought.

Opa had planted tomatoes that didn't grow, 
so he dumped that soil back into a bucket to use later,
he then ended up putting some of that soil into a cup with 
the acorn McKenzie picked up for her to take home.

We now have a tomato plant
that had to be transferred from it's little cup to a new home.

Miss McKenzie has finished her first year in Awanas.
They had their awards night this past Wednesday.
It was so fun to get to see her up on stage singing their cubbies songs 
& accepting her final patch for her vest.
{a little bear & she got her last elephant patch for the year}

Before the awards ceremony:

Following the awards ceremony with her bear patch:

And just a few, without the vest, of my 'big' baby girl.

The View.

Just a few of what we saw during our trip to Washington state... Hubby had to work & he took some vacation days afterwards so we could visit family. We had a fantastic time. 
(The rest of my 'view' photos are having issues uploading to my computer or are on my phone)

Tulip 'Farm'

We took a little Drive to check out Mt. Rainier.

Two Favorites: Colby & Stripes.


The smolder & some goofy lip thing he does.

Kissy face & breaking my heart with his sweet innocence. 

I'm pretty obsessed with his cute little ears.

Cute 'sleeping lips'.  swoon.

the cuteness of a sleeping baby. 
sure does melt my heart.

One windy evening.


She's so big.  She became this big girl overnight it seems.  Baby girl, I love watching you grow, seeing you learn, hearing the thoughts & questions you have.. but it's breaking my heart a little.  Lets slow down just a bit, K?

5 Months

{April 9, 2012}

Dear Colby,
You are still not sleeping more than 3-4 hours at a time at night. 
You are however, breaking Mama's heart with how fast you're growing.
Daddy and I are enjoying making homemade purees for you & 
so far you've tried cereal, bananas, strawberries and blueberries.
You love it all.
You are working really hard on trying to scoot across the floor, 
but mostly move yourself around in a circle or backwards.
I'm not in much of a hurry for you to figure it out ;)
You adore your big sister.  
She can easily make you smile & gets the best giggles out of you.
I love seeing you two together, makes my heart full.
Little Man, I love you so much it hurts. Happy 5 months!

4 Months.

Dear Colby,
In this last month you have accomplished rolling tummy to back & back to tummy.
I was proud and sad all at the same time... with your sister I was all about her next milestone...
with you, I know time flies by faster than you can imagine. Too too fast.  So I'm cherishing the moments, trying not to wish for the past or look to much towards the future.  You are a sweet baby, smile a ton, and babble and coo at us a lot.  You don't sleep as well as I'd hope at night... you've regressed a bit.. 2-4 hour stretches. I don't mind, I'm learning to function on slightly less sleep, and you're just so darn cute at any hour that it makes it easier.  You are starting teeth, and suck and chew on your hands and most anything else you can grasp and get into your mouth & you love sticking your little tongue out.  You are such a great addition to our family and I can't imagine our little world without you.  I am so blessed.
                       - Love Mama 


I went on a hat buying spree before Colby was born, and then we had a pretty warm winter and he didn't get to wear them much, so I had a little photo shoot with him and some of his cute little hats.
