creature feature!

With spring here, and summer approaching, I have noticed there are lots of creatures stirring :)

Cardinals are my absolute favorite bird. I love them. They make me endlessly happy and I think they are good luck. A couple weeks ago we noticed a nest outside our guest room window and it had eggs!!! well now those precious eggs have hatched and there are two adorably fuzzy chicks. I saw the mama for the first time yesterday and they are cardinals! We have baby cardinals!
I took this through the window so not to disturb them. So very precious!
And in our back yard we have a family of cotton tails under our deck! This was also through the window.
And if that was not enough, we are also dealing with giraffes and dinosaurs!

I love his reflection in that picture. He loves to play with EJ's toys :)

Have I mentioned that this boy is going to be walking soon? He crawls super fast and pulls up on everything. He can stand up with out pulling up now and he is cruising too. He might be my earliest walker! 
And my juice baby. Man oh man does he love juice!!!!! But, I love him more :)

play play play!!!!!

Can I just say I am ready for summer! Next week is our last week of school and I cant wait!!
With three boys it is no surprise there is a lot of playing going on in our house. EJ loves to play and read all day. Matthew is now hitting the age that he gets really bored and demands mommy to play with him. Austin  loves playing with his legos and can easily do this hours at a time.
Most days, Austin and EJ are playing legos in their bedroom side by side. They don't often play together but yet on their own little projects next to each other. It is the cutest thing. Both Austin and EJ are great big brothers to Matthew and will occasionally play with him. Although you know baby toys are pretty boring to big kids :)
EJ is really into dinosaurs right now. Really. He has dinosaur gummy vitamins, watches dinosaur train and everything/anything else dinosaur related, pretends he is a t-rex 90% of the day, and plays constantly with his assortment of dinosaurs. If you must know, he is the t-rex and I am a duck bill lol. A random picture of Matthew's chubby baby hands. Swoon.

 EJ also got a very special gift this past week. Papa and Daddy made him a sand box that he loves. Now he can play dinosaurs in the sand. Oh happy day!!! Volcanoes galore! Of course he helped make it.
 I think his hair is perfection. He has never once had a hair cut and I just cant bring myself to do it yet.
 Throwing sand. Apparently it is lots of fun!
 Diaper changing time this morning. Love this big boy. Speaking of big, he will be TEN months in just a couple days. How in the heck does that happen so fast. I'm in complete denial.

 That big blue bin? That is all of Matthew's toys. Don't worry, it did not avalanche on to his head. Mommy is right there to help :)
 And Sophie. Our little love bug that Santa brought this year.
 And EJ's baby. This is his biggest toy dino. He loves it! The first night he got it, we slept with it in the bed. All night. Yes, we are still co sleeping but hoping to change that before he turns four next year. Right now we are potty training and he is doing really well so far! As long as I instigate frequent potty breaks, there are no accidents. We are far from leaving the house without a diaper or naps/night time but it is a start!
I am loving these days with my boys and pray every day that I can be the best mom I can be for them. Time goes way too fast and I don't want to miss a minute! And last but not least, Adam and Matthew getting some snuggles. If only I could slow down time.....

busy bees!!

We have family in town this week so we have been enjoying the company! I wanted to stop by and share some pictures!

Oh and if you are wondering why some of my pictures are watermarked, it is because I joined and we have to watermark those images we share. And well I am just to lazy to remove it before sharing here. I think I will just start watermarking all of them since I should be doing that anyway!
Love my boys so much and they sure do love spending time with grandma and papa!!

oh sweet internet!

Well you may have noticed I have been missing for a while. Or maybe not :)

Anyway our computer crashed. It was only two years old and I was definitely not expecting it. I lost everything on it- 7000 pictures and about 200 videos. Including the video of Matthew's birth. It is sad but I am clinging to the hope that all of that can be recovered from the hard drive eventually. In the mean time, I am just starting to get back to the online world and wanted to stop in and say hi. Oh and share a couple pictures.

Hoping to be much, much more present from here on out!
