Future Green Thumb

This morning Lee & I planted some Zinnias in the garden. I love Zinnias; they are so cheerful! I showed Lee the picture on the seed pack and asked if he thought the seeds would grow into pretty flowers like these. He said no but he said no a lot this morning. We'll see if they grow!
After we were finished planting them he came at me with his hand in the air saying "good job Mama" and gave me a high 5. He walked away but then turned back around and gave me a hug and said "thank you Mama." Sweetest thing.

Easter Fun!

He Lives! He Lives! Christ Jesus lives today!
Here are a bunch of pictures of all the fun Easter happenings. I know that Easter is so much more than egg hunts and bunnies but all of those things are fun too. So thankful that we have a mighty God and loving Savior so worthy of praise and celebration!
The Commons Easter Egg Hunt
So much fun and so many pastel colored children!
Our Easter Egg tree. So special to me.
Little Bunny Brant
Easter Eve dinner & egg hunt at Happy & Deedee's house
The Easter Bunny hopped by our house!

And then we went to Natalie & Wayne's house in Birmingham. Lee was so excited to see Raines, Tucker & Finley!
Happy Easter Everyone!

It's Hard Not to Laugh

When you're in the laundry room for 5 seconds and hear Lee saying "Ho Ho Ho" over and over again and walk out to this. Peanut butter spread all over his face like a beard and Ritz crackers that stick with no problem at all. Oh brother.
Its also hard not to laugh when you're talking about trash men, Jesus and love all together. Today we were driving down the street on what is supposed to be our TRASH PICK UP DAY - a big deal at our house. Lee keeps asking where the trash men are and I tell him they have the day off today because it is Good Friday. I told him that while Jesus lived on this earth, today was the day he did the thing that showed his love for us the most. And trash men have the day off because Jesus loves us so much. He even loves the trash men. All I hope is that he understands that Jesus loves.
And, I can't forget about this little guy. Hey Brant! Yesterday he sat in the Bumbo for the first time. I think babies look so funny in Bumbos. Like little munchkins.
And apparently I can't put pictures of Brant without his feet!
Love them!

Oh, Oh Tay!

That is Lee's latest new thing to say. And, if I have heard a lot of Oh, Oh tays! it has been a really good day!
And, Thomson came to play! Isn't he so cute?!?!

First Bath Together!

{Why do I like baby feet so much?}

How is your week going?

Stephanie said this needs a caption!
This is the Lee-bo. This picture pretty much sums him up! Shoes on the wrong feet, in the shower, with dental floss & silly bands, t-shirt (UGA!!!) tucked into his undies, mischevious grin on his face. A mess! And one of the reasons I love him so much!
And no, we don't lock him in the shower to potty! He just thinks the shower is so fun. Minutes later he slid, bumped his head & that was the end of shower fun for the day!

3 Months!

Brant is 3 months old and I can hardly believe it. It seems like he has been a part of our family for a long time but it is going so fast. At first he was a little fussy but now he is so, so sweet. How does your heart love so much?

A few little things about Brant: He is really smiley and talks a lot. He loves to be talked to. He rubs his hair and is trying so hard to get his thumb. He is a skinny, long thing and has really big feet. He loves to rock and could be held all day. He loves to lay free and kick all around too. He stretches and curls his toes while he eats. He likes to read stories, even the long ones. He sleeps all night and takes good naps. He rubs my shoulder with his little right hand when we rock. He is part of our new normal. He does a double take and then stares when Walker lays by him; he's not so sure what to think of him yet. He does not like to burp and cries every time I try. He has my heart just like Lee and I love him so much.

Around here lately...

Brant keeps getting sweeter & sweeter!
We love being outside in the pretty weather! Our cousins Christie & Tyler gave us their old play set and it is so fun. Lee LOVES it!
