David, your face is just the cutest. I love your new expressions & can't help but try to capture them.
We had the privilege of resurfacing our pool the end of this winter! We had been wanting to for years, and we were lucky enough to be able to do it this year. We had to take a family picture in the bottom of our empty pool to see just how BIG the pool really is! It is kind of amazing. One more item off our 'to fix' list for our home, and one more gift to enjoy with our family for years to come.
Our little buddy turned two months old, so I have been taking video of him on his 'month birthdays' this time around. I'm hoping that by being able to watch him as he grows & changes, that I can save up the memories even better this time around. Babies are just wonderful if you ask me, and my sweet David has been that and more.
This baby fell asleep in my lap & had the squishy-lip-sleeping-face. Makes my heart melt.
David's best buddy is Hayden. Hayden just loves this baby, even though he has stiff competition for that title. James is an awesome helper & adores David. They have both taught Calvin how to be so sweet to David, and his favorite thing is to come up to David and say, "Hiiiiiii!! oh Hiiiii!!" in this high pitched little sing song voice. It's just plain adorable.
This is the age of bed time routine actually beginning for our little guy. He started falling asleep on my chest or Matt's around 8:30 or 9 pm, so we started trying to get him in his little bassinet if we could. These last few pictures from when he was two months old were so sweet, and we were so tired. But we enjoyed each last day.
For national park day, we went out to the Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine. This originally Spanish fort is an incredible place to see, explore, and watch the cannons as they shoot one! The boys always have a great time visiting here. This day, we participated in the 'junior ranger' program & the boys all completed the activity to receive a badge and certificate. We will be on the look out for more 'junior ranger' programs to do in the future!
It only took a couple of weeks before the weather was perfect for a camp out in the back yard. With a tiny new baby, we decided this was the best way to enjoy the experience and do a test run. I was sure they would be coming back inside, but they did it! Spent the entire night outside. The boys loved it.
The best part of the set up was when Calvin disappeared for a minute, and then came outside WITH THE PLAY TENT FROM HIS BEDROOM. haha, I'm so glad he didn't fall down the stairs trying to carry it, or break anything hanging on the walls. Gosh, but it was hilarious to see it set up next to the other tents outside.
Love this sleepy, relaxed baby.
Happy Spring time herb garden! We revamped our yard with mulch, my little garden, new bird feeders, and new humming bird feeders. We have enjoyed our yard & all the beauty that surrounds us daily.
Ah, the bliss of a sleeping baby. So glad to capture those last new nights before we let us put him down in his bed.
Calvin got to take cupcakes in to his Sunshine class for his birthday. He asked for chocolate with sprinkles, and he got to have Star Wars rings! So much fun to celebrate him.
I am always amazed by how white the hairs falling out of my head are turning. It is amazing! My baby in his sweet bassinet.
Oh my goodness Mr. Happy!!
Our buddy learned to roll from his belly to his back around 2.5 months. It took him a little longer to learn the other way around!
I can't help myself when my baby is so little & cute. I took tons of pictures.
We volunteered to decorate Mrs. Viola's door at school for the Spring/Summer time & decided to use Calvin's Snoopy house! It worked perfectly, and Calvin was so kind to share it.
David holding up his head & having chats with me. I love how tiny he looks, even at 13 lbs.
The boys last soccer game & Grammy&Papa got to come and watch!
We enjoyed watching our boys play. They worked hard & tried their best. They didn't play on the best team or make a ton of progress in their skill level, but they had fun. Their last game was pretty rough on them because they got discouraged, but Daddy went over to hang out on the bench, and to me, that was the highlight of the game.
