Consumed by all the fun!

I have been neglecting a lot of things lately like blogging but all in good fun!  I have been having so much fun playing with my boys and not worrying about really much else but my family.  This is the way it should always be.

We have been to the library for story time, the park, picnicking, playing with friends, and making messes.  Gates got a sand box fully stocked with toys from his friends that had out grown it.  Gates is in heaven, he did not want to come in from playing in it.


I also got something that I am equally excited about.  New dining room chairs!  I am obsessed.  The only problem with these new chairs was they made the current dining room chairs look really terrible.   I couldn’t have the old dining room chairs with there outdated floral print fabric taking away from my new beauties, so I had to do a quick fix and I mean really quick.  Same day I got the new chairs, I decided I had to recover the old, even if it meant using a paint drop cloth, and that is exactly what I did.  A new paint drop cloth never used before, that I already had, was a perfect (cheap) fix until I figure out what I want to do with this room (curtains, paint, china cabinet, possibly new table, rug).

We went to the zoo with friends last week while the weather was so nice.  Gates had a blast.  He loves the zoo.  His favorite part was the train, the carrousel and petting the goats.


Gates thought it was important to brush each goat.

Happy Valentines!

Better late then not at all!  Gates made Valentines using a potatoe stamp of a heart and paint.  He took his clothes off himself but the cupid look worked out because I didn’t have to worry about him getting paint on his clothes.DSC_0715

10 Months Already!


Teddy and Jack are 10 months already!  Also, they are already becoming crazy little boys! 

Jack is all over the place crawling and climbing.  He is already climbing up the stairs.  His favorite thing to do is to use the gate or the columns of the stairs to stand and bounce.  He also likes to get on his hands and knees on his bouncy chair and ride it like he is a cowboy.  Teddy thinks this is really funny and cool and will attempt to do it himself but he doesn’t have the bouncing bronco mastered as well as Jack. 

They are eating like hungry little hippos.  They love Cheerios but will eat green beans, squash, sweet potatoes, but hate pees.  They also enjoy yogurt and all fruits.  There only words are “mama”.

Teddy is so laid back and calm.  He isn’t as much of a busy body as his brother.  He hasn’t started fully crawling yet but gets around by dragging and scooting around.  He loves to be entertained by Gates and laughs at Jack climbing all over everything.

Gates is such a good big brother still.  He tries to be so helpful and will take it upon himself to go make bottles, (not a good thing, he makes a mess),  he gives them his pacie, wants to hold them even though he isn’t that much bigger then them any more and will dance and sing for them to make them happy.
