A busy day!

Today was a busy day!  We went for a drive around the country.  We went for a walk, we played outside, we washed the car, Little N and John put together Little N's trike &  Little M was a little cutey who just had to have pictures taken of him!

Fun outside

We went for a walk....John had an Ebay class to teach so we took a walk to school & the park!  We had lots of fun!  Little M & I went on the swings and Little N played on ALL the equipment! He also greeted the geese!

A busy fun day!

Caristy got called in for a sub job today!  Drove the car into work & then John drove the bike with the boys in the trailer (both boys loved it!) to get the car.  Then during my lunch break all the boys came back to visit so that Little M could have some mommy time! Then when I was done with work we walked to the Pizza Ranch!  I love this weather!  It's awesome! :-)

Spring is coming!

Wooo HOO!!! I am so excited.....we had a nice day out today.  So nice that we got to go for our first walk of the season.  When we got back John told me about how a tulip had pushed it's way out and we might have a flower next week.  Well I've been looking for signs of spring.....so I was super excited to hear that!  Spring is here....we have snow mounds but for the most part all the snow has melted in our front and back yard.  Because the snow melted we also found some stuff that we were missing: a mitten, a pacifer (which Little M won't use), golf balls and some other stuff. :-)  Here is a sign that ND is getting spring!

Little N and baking

We tried to make a yummy treat today.  I have sweeten condensed milk and haven't used to so I looked for a recipe to try to use it.  I found these cute muffin cookies to try to make.  After Little N was awake and ready to talk to me nicely we started working.  Little N was the taste tester....made sure everything tasted good and looked good!  He was very excited that he got to eat the chocolate & peanut butter chips. My treat tasted and turned out pretty good.

Pretty

My new lens came this week.  I've enjoyed playing with it and figuring out what it can and can not do.  It's different then anything I've ever had.  I've always had a variable aperture (so it could be 3.5 at 35 mm but 5.6 at 80 mm) and now I have a fixed aperture so that means that if I set it at 2.8 it will stay at 2.8 even if I change my mm.)  Today I took a picture of pretty flowers and my ring....just to see how it would do with rings and close ups.  I think it did pretty well.....there is OWNER operator error in some of the pictures but that's not the lens fault. :-)

Little M's first taste of cereal

We got the okay to give Little M food.  We knew that we could start giving food once he hit 6 months but we just wanted to wait and get the okay at his 6 month visit. So we started with Rice Cereal.....Little M was very intrigued with this food and spoon idea (he's been watching and trying to grab at our stuff for the last couple weeks).  But when it came to eating it.....ehhh.....he wasn't that much of a fan.  Poor guy.....I'm sure that it will get easier but I forgot how hard it was to start little kids on food.  Sigh!  It's all worth it in the end....at least that's what I'll keep on saying.

Right now Little M is a mama's boy....his eyes light up and he's SO excited to see me!  I will enjoy it while it lasts because I'm sure it won't last!  But isn't he adorable?

Let's fly a kite!

Little N was VERY upset after church because he wanted to see his Grandma and Grandpa (Ba pa).....didn't matter if it was Caristy's or John's folks.  We told him no but he could go and see the Starkes....as a substitute Grandma and Grandpa.  So we went over and Clint took him outside to play! :-)  Then they got the kite and they played with the kite....these are John's pictures of the kite because I had a little guy sleeping on me. Thanks for the fun visit!!

Update on Little M

We went to the DR. yesterday for a check up.  Little M is 14 pounds 1 oz (10%) and 27 inches long (75%).  Once I get my new lens (hopefully Monday or Tuesday) we will be starting on food besides milk.  I think that Little M will like food.

Can I hold Him

We (the boys and I) went over to a friends house.  The little girl of the house doesn't have any younger siblings (just older siblings) so she wanted to hold Little M.....but kept calling him a her.  I do the same thing but with dogs.  She also wanted me to take a picture of Little M and her.  Little M liked to have his foot showing in the pictures.

Splish-Splash

Spring is the time of muddy backyard, and water holes.  What fun for a 2 1/2 year old boy.  Well now that he has his water boots TONS of fun!  Now we just have to have it warm up so we can go outside and play.
