Cayson-18 months

Cayson....how is it possible that you are 18 months old. You are my sweet momma boy, you challenge me and teach me daily. 

Personality: 
You are still my little dare devil but this month you have slowed down a little bit. Last month seemed more challenging. You still test the waters and smile and grin and attempt to do things again I just told you not to do. You are starting to respond more to timeouts/spankings so that helps. You hate to get in trouble just like your sissy. When you get in trouble you will give me the biggest pouty lip, drop your head, put your arms up and cry for me to hold you. If I am sitting on the floor playing with you, you love to come over and sit in my lap and play. You are most definitely my physical touch, cuddly boy!

Talking:
You are a talking machine these days. Even the nurse at your 18 month appointment commented on how much you like to talk. You don't have tons of words, but the words you do have you use a lot:) As soon as she came to get us you showed her your "shoes." You add a new word to your repertoire almost daily. Your new favorite words are "Mimi, Mamaw, Dixie, shoes, boots, sissy, bubbus (bubbles), hat, socks, boon (aka balloon), Mickey, ticker (aka sticker)." One of your newest words is poop (in context of dog poop out side), you will say, "Ewww, poop." You love to say eww...It is quite adorable. You will also say "eww ekk" when I change your poopy diapers ha! The way you say "uh oh" pulls at my heart to! I LOVE your sweet, baby voice!

Eating:
You still love to eat. You have become more picky and will eat only what you want and will throw what you don't want to the dogs. This is a constant battle. You also love to squeeze your juice/milk boxes on your tray and play in it...another constant battle. I have found that you have to be in your high chair to have anything because you make the biggest messes. You have been sick off and on all month so when you don't feel well you also don't eat as well. I've noticed when you are sick you prefer fruit...I won't complain about that. 

Sleep:
Oh how I miss your paci. Not going to lie there were several moments of weakness in the middle of the night that I almost gave it back. You have been sick, had pink eye, or been teething most of the month making sleep a rare thing. You still nap pretty good, probably because you are exhausted from not sleeping well at night. You are definitely down to one nap and it usually lasts 2-3 hours. At night you will cry, I will rock you, give you medicine if needed then you will usually go back to sleep. This isn't a daily thing but it is definitely a more often than not occurence. Momma's tired!! Hoping this passes soon.

Favorites:
You are obsessed with "Mic-keee." You will actually sit in my lap and watch at least half an episode now-game changer. If you see a Mickey anywhere we go you get super excited. You still love and adore your sissy and love to give open mouth kisses. Dixie is still your favorite and you follow her around a lot. You love to eat and you love to play in your spilled drinks. You still prefer "wa wa" over milk and I don't mind that. You LOVE to be outdoors and would stay outside all day if I let you. 

Oh sweet boy, we sure do love you!

First haircuts

So I guess when you have adorable, blonde babies you get to wait forever for haircuts. I have trimmed small mullets from both of them but neither have had true haircuts. It became apparent that Cayson's mullet game was strong and was only getting worse, so haircuts it was. Isabella was probably way past due for a trim, but hey I love her curls and didn't want to see them go! The kids did great, Isabella requested blue sparkles for her hair like a princess ha! Cayson got antsy and tearful at the end but did great considering. 










Love these two with all my heart!

Valentine's day card making

Monday Isabella and I did some Valentine's day crafting which included finishing her classmate's Valentine's day cards and teacher gifts. I have always loved to craft and color and my sweet kiddos are following right along in my footsteps. They can both be found coloring, painting, playdoh-ing, sticker-ing (they both LOVE stickers), pretty much all day at their little table. 

I started looking at Pinterest for card ideas weeks ago....My Pinterest Valentine's day board here...I LOVE Valentine's day:)

Then I saw these adorable "Kazoo should be mine" cards on Brickyard Buffalo and knew Isabella would love them and the plus side-SO easy! They were a hit with Isabella and Cayson!






Brother came to help



Teacher gifts: Mason jar, dark chocolate, OPI nail polish, EOS chapstick, tic tacs:)

Happy LOVE week!

Friendvakay 20.16

We have had a Friendvakay planned for months to Mexico and we have been so excited. It was going to be Jen and I's first trips leaving our babies for more than 2 days and we were so excited to go relax on the beach and sip on some cocktails or in Jen's instance "mocktails." BUT thanks to dang Zika virus it became apparent to us 2 weeks ago that Mexico was a no go! Sweet Jen definitely couldn't go and with us wanting to continue to expand our family the unknowns were too much for us.  So literally Monday, before our flight left on Thursday, I booked us a trip to Winter park. From sea to snow, what a whirlwind. It wasn't the sun and beach we had planned but was 7 degrees and snow but we had so much fun and I am so thankful for sweet friends. It was a trip to remember. I was anxious to leave my babies but they were in incredible hands. Of course Cayson woke up with pink eye and an ear infection Saturday but thankful my MIL and sweet SIL, who is a nurse, were there for him:) Made my momma heart feel better! And now for the fun pics and details...

First day was 7 degrees!!

First time to Snow mobile. It was SO fun, freezing but fun. They took us right up to the Continental divide!
This crew….LOVE them!


This was only Dennis' second time to ski…he didn't love it but he did great!

We even got to see Eric and Sarah!

Ready to go!

This was my last run the first day…very challenging but oh so fun!

Who's the girl in the goggles and the crazy guy with one leg!


My first Hot toddy!

 My sweet, cuddly sick boy:(

I could not be more thankful for these girls. 

We all had the perfect winter boots….it took lots of convincing but Jen snatched the BEST Sorel boots ever!


Thankful for my daily pictures

Headed home after we all had an incredible 4 days!

Next year warm weather, beach, tan, cocktails!!
