Besides waiting around for a new baby to arrive, this is what we’ve been up to lately:
The weather is finally warming up, and we try to take advantage of it as often as possible. Here’s some pics from the first day the kids wore shorts outside this year. West dressed himself!! We went to the park twice that day! West and Charlie saw a real ice cream truck for the first time and were SO excited. We bought 2 ice creams and spent like $6.50. It was worth it though.
Ben got the bike and bike trailer out again and took the kids on a ride. This is one of their favorite things to do in the summer.
When we go to the park by our house, West takes his shoes off and climbs up the outside of the tallest slide, jumps over the top, slides down, and repeats. All of the other moms think I’m crazy for not stopping him and probably get mad because then their kids try to do it too. I used to try to stop him, but I gave up. Boys will be boys?
Charlie seems to be hitting the “terrible twos” already. It might be because her big brother teaches her how to be naughty or maybe its because she’s a girl? Either way, she is a lot to handle somedays. Well, they both are actually.
Easter Sunday was a lot of fun! We saw family, hunted eggs, and best of all, didn’t cook! My semi-pro photographer sister, Meredith, took some awesome pics of the cousins!
West made this tomb at Sunday school on Easter.
Charlie is learning to count. It think she’s a genius.
12 days (or less!) until the new baby arrives. I am doing everything humanly possible to try to induce labor, but I need a divine intervention!! Please pray for this baby to pop out SOON.
