HDG 2014

Sunday, 3/16

Addie had a birthday party in the afternoon at an indoor swimming pool.  She put on her swimsuit at 8 am and I immediately asked myself why I tell her things so early.


Monday, 3/17

I took ALL THREE KIDS to the store for the first time yet all by myself.  We went to Costco.  Although we arrived and Addie did not have shoes, it was overall a huge success and I might try it again…in about 6 weeks!IMG_2273


Tuesday, 3/18

Ariel, aka “Oreo” (because that’s how it sounds when Emmie says it) is Emmie’s new obsession.  She goes everywhere Emmie goes, sleeps with her, and even swings with her! Sweet girl.  We now all call the doll Oreo. :)IMG_2288

Thursday, 3/20

Snuggled up on the couch with this one watching Frozen.  She has the most deliciously soft skin…can’t you tell?


Friday, 3/21

My little man…


Daddy stayed home from work because I was sick with the stomach bug.  He took the girls to open jump at the trampoline park and they ALL had a blast!  He sent this pic of their fun!


My big girl who happens to hate naps, curled up in bed next to her mommy and took a nap. So sweet. These times are fleeting. 


Saturday, 3/22

We’ve moved on to a new baby contraption!  Johnny Jump Up!  He did not know what to think.  Emmie kept shouting, “Jump Gay, Jump!”  So sweet! 


Love these kids and love our crazy life!


HDG 2014

I am two weeks behind!  Here’s the week before last week in pictures!


Sunday, 3/9

Nana came over and brought Emmie the most special gift!  She made an activity book for buckle-snap-zipper-lovin little girl.  It’s such a labor of love and will be a family heirloom for years to come! Thank you Nana!


Monday, 3/10

This little guy looked so cute in his buddy Colin’s outfit to play outside!


And later that night, snuggles from daddy…


Tuesday, 3/11

We played outside!  The weather was gorgeous!  I loved these pics of all three on the swings!  Fun fun fun!


Wednesday, 3/12

We had Ben and Briggs over for playtime and lunch!  The kids enjoyed making handprint crafts that Bubbie got us!  We love us some Mahrer boys!


Thursday, 3/13

After a feeding, I caught Grayson staring out the window and loved how you can see his blue eyes in this photo!



That night before bed Emmie was so proud of herself for putting on Addie’s panties.  She walked around like this forever even though her legs were stuck together!

She’s so funny without trying to be!


Firday, 3/15

Emerson visited the dentist for the first time!  She was amazing and brave and cute!  The hygienist fell in love with her.  Daddy surprised us with a day off work so I was able to take her all by herself for this big visit.  She was so sweet.


That night we had the Lairds over for dinner and playtime in the backyard!  It was a lovely evening and we enjoyed having them over so much!  The kids jumped and jumped and we ate our weight in chips and queso!  IMG_2240IMG_2241

Saturday, 3/15

I snapped a few pictures of Grayson Saturday that were just so sweet.  He is so happy and so smiley these days I just cannot stop taking his pictures!

Emmie Claire - 2 Years Old!

When my bestie (since 2nd Grade) Kelly asked what Emmie wanted for her 2nd birthday, I said, “One picture of her sweet face through your lens.”  Kelly has an incredible eye for capturing my children and I wanted to remember this sweet face at 2 years old as long as I live.  A couple of Mondays ago, Kelly kidnapped Emmie and took her to the park and gave us the best birthday gift EVER!  I only asked for one picture, but she gave us 11 beautiful shots of our sweet girl and we are madly in love with the result.  THANK YOU Kelly, we will treasure these photos forever and EVER!  You have the sweetest heart!

Emerson Claire, 26 months old….

Be still, my heart….
