Summer Babers

We've had crazy warm temperatures the last couple days and the kids are loving it!  Ida's been able to get out her new ropmers and you can tell by that little face that she knows she's cute in them!

She loves loves to read.

Yup, I caught her pulling all the books off her shelf.

This buddy is growing up fast! He's hit the why why why stage which has it's fun and frustrating elements. But he's got a big kind heart. And, in general, he's really good at looking after Ida.
After having difficulty going to bed the other night, I was tucking him in and he asked,
"Is it alright if I sing in bed?"
"Of course!"
He started singing and I started heading out,
"When the sun gets up, I can sing some more!!"
I also love the fact that he calls Ida's lego doll, "Sleeping Dooty."

Ida 11 Months

Our little babers has already passed the 11 month mark and is quickly closing in on 1!  Aack!  She's just so sweet, so fun, and so cuddly.  She seems close to walking, but who knows, she's a pretty speedy crawler.  If you turn your back for a second she's booking it up the stairs to the playroom.  She can point to her nose,  pat her head to tell you she's baptized, say "peez, dada, mama, asa, baby."  And she tries so hard to do anything Asa does.  Her favorite toys are the duplo lego people.  She crawls around with one in each hand, occasionally stopping to chew on their head or hide them in some kitchen drawer! It's really fun seeing her personality develop, but I can't believe her birthday is almost here!  At least she still loves loves to cuddle and give drooly kisses.
(Side Note:  We're pretty sure she put one of her duplo people in the trash, and when I emailed Lego about a replacement they sent me a $5 coupon since they don't have the rights from disney to send just the duplo doll! Great service!!)

Planting Seeds

We've been eating up every minute of this gorgeous spring weather!!  Amara came over today to help us plant our vegetable seeds!  Amara workd hard at pushing the seeds in and Asa worked hard at getting "the mud."

They left me to it after a little while and ran around the yard being space rangers fighting cows.

Happy Easter!

He is Risen!

My poor little girl has had an awful cold and fever all weekend so she and I stayed home today. She just got dressed for a quick picture.

My handsome guys - Asa doing his thumbs up.

My Birthday Too

Yup, it's birthday week for us!  I hit 25!  Crazy, party week and I really don't want to see sweets again for awhile... although next week is Easter so..
Mike made my funfetti cake all by himself- frosted, decorated, everything!  It's even in the shape of the heart! (although that's because I somehow don't own any round cake pans.. know what to ask for for next year's birthday!)
