Warming up!!

Spring is in the air and it's definitely warming up which means…we are spending more and more time outdoors!  Hooray!!  Here are some things we have been up to:

Baseball!!  This is Parker's first time to play any kind of organized sport. To say he loves it is an understatement!!
So very proud of his new bat bag, name tag and everything inside the bag!

He is a natural.
I know I'm his mom, but I love to see his God given talent at work.  Being athletic is a gift and sports just come so easily to him.  Playing gives him such joy, it's truly what he loves to do!

Little sis loves going to practices and being his cheerleader!

Warm weather also means more trips to the ranch!
We loaded up and headed out for a weekend with some of our favorite friends, the Wings!

We ALL piled in the mule for a fun ride.

The ride lulled Sydney to sleep.

Walt and Morgan playing in the sand pile at the new house out there.

Wyatt and Parker

Her very first trip to the Red River Steakhouse!  Yum!!


Do you notice a theme here?  Parker is OBSESSED with his Baylor football jersey and wears it everywhere.  I wash it so much I'm afraid it's just going to fall apart.

Warm weather means yard work is beginning!!  Sydney wanted in on the action.

You can always find this girl at a window.  A girl after my own heart…always wants to be outdoors enjoying a pretty day.

Do you see what I see?  Little baby leaves!!!

A tip of the hat from P at practice the other night.

And this is just too cute not to post.  If I'm doing the dishes, Sydney is right beside me sitting on the dishwasher lid.  ;)  Such a "helper"!

10 months

So Sydney turned 11 months old on March 18th and I realized that I never did her 10 month post.  Sigh.  One day I will be more on top of this blog…one day.  ;)

Sydney Kate, you change every day and I can't handle it!  You are growing up before our eyes and are literally taking off.  We get a kick out of your laugh, it kind of sounds like a hyena or something, it's hysterical and cute at the same time!  You have gotten so fast at crawling and are into everything!  I love how curious you are and how you love to "help" me by grabbing everything from my hands and doing it yourself!

At 10 months Sydney…
*  basically sleeping all night
*  takes a 21/2 to 3 hour nap in the afternoon
*  loves to eat finger foods by herself
*  favorites include string cheese, cheerios, strawberries, yogurt, waffles and squeeze pouches filled with any vegetable imaginable!
*  still nurses about 4 times a day
*  loves books
*  has two teeth
*  is obsessed with her paci still
*  has enough hair to put clip bows in!!

Our happy girl!!

Spring Break 2014

Spring break has come and gone believe it or not!  That means we are one step closer to summer…can I get an amen??  A couple of weeks ago, the kids and I flew down to Dallas to play for a couple of days over Spring break and had a blast hanging out with my fam!  The weather did not disappoint and we had so much fun!

Waiting for our plan in Amarillo.

He loves the window seat.

Sydney did this the whole flight!!

While we were there, we did what girls do best, we shopped!

And tried on bunny ears!  She was thrilled.

We had a gorgeous day at the Arboretum for pictures!

Have I told you how much I LOVE having a girl??  

There is a new kid's section there with giant bugs to crawl on, science stations to play with and all kinds of other fun things.  Parker loved it!

Two tired kids on the way out.

We also hit up the Dallas Zoo with every other resident of Dallas.  It literally was a ZOO!
Parker loved looking at the map and telling us where to go.

My monkey

Sis did great just riding along in the stroller.

You KNOW my trip to Dallas wouldn't be complete without a trip to North Park Mall!

Hello March!

Oh dear, I can't believe it's been almost a month since I posted last, forgive me!  I am super excited we are now in the month of March…cold weather just HAS to be ending soon right??  Gosh I hope so because this warm weather girl can't take much more of this cold or sickness that we've dealt with this season.

Anyway, on days that we are all well and feeling good, it sure has been nice to get outside and enjoy the warm temps when we have them!  Here are some things we've been up to…

The Olympics happened and so did this speed skating stance.  Made us laugh out loud!

Little sister enjoying the swing for the first time.   Look how brown the background is…I'm so over it.

Sydney loves riding in the jogger!

Parker was so excited about Valentine's day.  He got a new Where's Waldo book.

Sweet girl was pretty excited too!

We took the kids to the ranch to play one Saturday and this is what we found in the back seat coming home…they had fun.

Picnics are happening and so is her fuzzy hair!

My girl turned 10 months old on Feb 18th!
Do you see my helper in the background??

She is a busy body.

They adore each other.  

The Harlem Globetrotters came to town and we took P to see them.

He thought it was awesome and also scored a new ball!

You see some green grass coming through?  It makes me happy and it makes Parker happy to "mow".


He wants to eat lunch next to her everyday (when he's not at preschool).

Miss Priss watching big bro play outside.

Snowy Sunday afternoon?  No prob…go barefoot, wear shorts and a tee, sport some shades and have cookies and hot chocolate by the fire!  ;)
