9 months and some randomness

This little diva is a little over 9 months and I can't believe it!!  I took her to the doctor last week and she is 29 1/2 inches tall and 20 lbs.  She is going to be TALL!!! 

We finally got to go see one of our favorite guys!!!  My uncle is having to do chemo off and on so he is in the hospital quite a bit and this little guy has missed him!!!  He likes to take Uncle Ray into the bedroom and play on the bed with just him.  I ran back there and snuck this picture.  Uncle Ray went back into the hospital today for a week for his 3rd round of chemo!  What a strong man he is!!  I know he is just going to kick this cancers butt!!

We had Brantley's birthday party to go to this weekend!  We had such a good time.  Here is Adalyn trying to hit on the birthday boy! 

Josiah's bff came over and spent some of the day with us on Friday!  They had such a good time together.  It was actually beautiful outside so we played in the backyard most of the day!  I can't wait till we can be outside everyday in the summer.  It is going to be so much fun with the kids this year!!  Beach here we come!!

St. Patrick's Day Fun

Since St. Patty's Day is coming up I wanted to have a little fun with it over the next week or so.  I tried to find something on Pinterest to do with Josiah but I didn't have all the supplies for the projects I found so I decided to come up with something myself!  Josiah knows his letter really good and most of his number but a few of them he has problems with remembering. 

What you need:
Scrap piece of paper
Snacks - teddy grahams, goldfish or any snack that is little

I just drew some clovers on a piece of green scrap paper I had laying around.  At the bottom I glued on a Pot of Gold but you wouldn't even have to do that if you didn't want to. 

I put some snacks in a bowl and told him he had to put the number of snacks that were in the clover.  He loved it!!!! 

When we were done "playing" with our food Josiah said, "Are we going to give Paddy this piece of paper when we are done?"  He doesn't quite get what St. Patty's day is, I thought it was too funny!  I love coming up/finding new ideas that are fun for him to learn!  It's hard keeping this big guy interested in things but when I do he really learns a lot.  We will be using this again in the next few days since he had such fun with it!

Business and Babies!!

Wow it has been awhile and I miss blogging so much!!! 

I have been busy starting anew business and it takes a lot more time than I thought.  I had to set up my own web page which was actually a lot of fun for me.  Very time consuming but I enjoyed every minute of it.  I have been working on it for about a month and finally decided to launch it yesterday.  Sweet Pea Co. is the name and if you would like to check it out please click here .  I am selling personalized cell phone covers, iPad covers, koozies, plates, platters, etc.  It is so much fun you can basically design your own products from choices that we have!  I don't have all the products up yet but I am working on it everyday to get more of the items on the website.  I am so excited for this new adventure and can't wait to see how it all works out!!! 

The babies are doing absolutely wonderful!  I can't believe Adalyn is 9 months old now and Josiah is 3 1/2!  Time sure is flying by!

A little about Adalyn
  • She has two teeth right now and two new ones coming in.  All on the bottom!
  • She is crawling all over the place and if she has something in her hands she will stand all by herself.
  • She gets into everything and puts everything into her mouth!  haha!
  • She loves big people food and has NEVER liked baby food!
  • She gets so excited when its bath time!
  • She is the sweeeeetest thing EVER!!!

A little about Josiah
  • He still LOVES to dress up.  Right now he is into super heroes.  He doesn't know it but we are planning a surprise birthday trip to Disney!!!!
  • He is so smart it is sometimes scary.
  • I love when he says, "Guess what?" and I will say, "What?" and he says "I love you!!" Melts my heart every time.
  • He is still pretty picky about food but LOVES his fruits. 
  • We signed him up for Pre-k and I think I might cry my eyes out.  I can't believe he will start school everyday in 5 months.....*tear
My babies and this business are keeping me busy and I am loving every minute of it!  It is so amazing to see Josiah and Adalyn play so well with each other!  I can't wait to continue to watch their love for each other grow.  Maybe one day we will add a third??  Maybe...We will just have to see what God has in store for our little family!!!!
