Wild man!

Austin  had a good nap this morning and was in the best mood! I love to capture these moments because he gives the best expressions and shows the most personality.

Getting his hands dirty!

99.9% of the time, when I walk over to the sink and start to wash dishes I can hear Austin's little footsteps coming close behind and that usually means he wants to see where I went and what am I doing. He will start to grab my pants and whine and pull himself up on my legs! He wants me to hold him so he can see what is going on. Well I discovered that if I just put a chair beside me and let him stand there he will just watch me wash dishes. And even though he tries to eat the bubbles and grab the water it’s much easier for me to deal with that then having a little monkey climbing up my legs…plus he gets to be closer to me and help momma and that makes us both happy.


I'm pretty sure this goes in here...

ohh whats that!?

Well...that is not how it is suppose to work but hey its the thought that counts :)

Dancing Monkeys

Austin loves to dance! He stomps his feet and moves his hips from side to side. It is so cute. His newest dance move is turning himself into circles. I have videos of this but no wont do it justice. It is funny to watch him turn himself in circles because then when he stops you can tell he is dizzy! Usually I can get Chandler to join in and then it defintly is fun to watch. Chandler turns himself around and moves his feet super fast! They are fun to be around :)

Bath of Bliss

My little monkey loves his bathtime! He loves to splash the water and talk up a storm the whole time :)

He loves his toys :)

UH your kidding!

No thank you can keep it


You Know You’re a Mom When-sDAZE

You know you’re a mommy when…

You’re at the sink trying to wash dishes and you little child comes and attaches himself to your clothes almost pulling your pants off in the process, not to mention you have company sitting in the kitchen with you!

Your back is turned and you hear a noise and turn to catch the bottle in mid air, because you just knew it was falling off the high chair.

When you and your child are wearing dirty shirts for feeding time because you know at some point he is going to sneeze.

Or when you are out of the room and you hear a cry and you know exactly what it means.

My Weekend

Spent some time with my grand-parents this weekend :) I always look forward to seeing them.

Then Landon and I had a date night ;)

Then we spent some time together as a family <3

All together we had a good weekend :)

Meet Me on Monday!

I love to link up!

1. What do your normally eat for breakfast?
2. What kind of vehicle do you drive?
3. Have you ever met a famous person(s)?
4. What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
5. Which TV Channel do you watch the most?

1. Normally I eat nothing at all...but if I do manage to squeeze something in, it would be a strawberry pop tart :)

2. I drive a CRV. It is the best SUV I have had! It runs like a car, drives like a car, and then gas to fill it up is cheap compared to other SUV's. It can fit three kids in the back seat and then has even more space in the back! It’s perfect for camping or any trip really.

3. No I have never met anyone famous. I would love to though!

4. My favorite ice cream would have to be.......turtle! I worked at a ice cream store for three years and I loved making and eating the turtle ice cream. Anything with chocolate and caramel is right up my alley!

5. Well during the day I mostly just have cartoons on, but when the hubby gets home its TBS :) I love King of Queens and Everybody Loves Raymond.

Sharing Silly Bands

Chandler has a lot of silly bands as most kids do these he was showing Austin that one of his silly bands is a drum set. And Chandler ended up sharing it with Austin so he could hold it :)

Craft time!

I love the summer time! Not only does it mean that the weather is warm and there are more fun activites to do but it also means that Landon and I get to see Chandler more! I don't work anymore so I get the pleasure of watching Chandler two days during the week. It has been going really well. He is such a big help with Austin. Since I am watching him during the week, I wanted to do fun activites to keep him away from just watching TV or getting bored. We have TV time, learning time, reading time and then outside time. We did a craft this past week that we were really proud of and wanted to share it (plus I have a camera now!)

For our craft we decided on a birdhouse..
He had steady hands...
took his time..
and was very proud... its done!

Sick Babies!

So I am sure you all have been wondering where I have been!? Well..not all of you but some I suppose :) I have been taking care of my sick children :( First Chandler was sick. His only symptom was a fever but that fever was too high and it made me worry. We took him to the doctor and they didn't know what was wrong. So I was giving him medicine to keep his fever down but nothing was happening. It ended up being a virus that lasted for 5-7 days. Well in the past when anybody was sick it never seemed to rub off on Austin..but this time was different. Little Austin got sick that next week. He was running a high fever and his throat was red but his doctor said he would be fine, it would take a few days. In the mean time I was dealing with a whinny, pitiful 11 month old baby until he passed. Both children are doing much better and I have my sanity back! Hopefully I can get back on track with blogging!
