Happy Birthday Katie

I am getting so big. I can sit up on my own although sometimes I still fall over. I love to roll all around, but really I would like to start crawling.
I love my big brother Tyler, to watch cartoons, and to snuggle with mom and dad.
I am a very happy little girl who loves to explore.

Letter F, G, H

It is one of my favorite times of the day that Tyler and I get to spend together. We read books, do paper work, practice our writing skills, do crafts, color....the list goes on and on. I can see how much he has improve over the last few months. I can see the joy in his face when he understands the concepts we are practicing.

F: Frog, G: Giraffe

H: Hand Sunflower

Look at those cute little hands.

New Teeth

I have been trying to get a picture of Katie's teeth ever since they came in but I just haven't been able to get a good shot. She was sick and crabby and making funny faces and there they were. I know it is an awful picture, but you can see her cute little teeth. She got her 1st tooth on March 26th and the 2nd on March 30th, 11 months old.
So if you count for her actual due date, her 1st tooth was when she was 8 months old. That makes me a pretty excited mom.

Collecting Snow

After all the snow we got on Sunday, this is all that was left on Monday. Tyler was so very disappointed that it was all melted except for the patch under the tree. He took his pale (do you love the way I spelled PALE...I know it should be PAIL) outside thinking he would save the snow. He attempted to bring the snow in the house but of course, mom would not allow that to happen. I think he is going to be very disappointed when it doesn't snow anymore and he can't wear his snow boots. But I think he will try to wear them year round as he still tries to wear his flip flops.

Gathering snow, his sunglasses kept falling off when he bent down.

Our Garden

Tyler and I started our little garden today. It is still to cold to plant outside, so we decided to start it in the house and maybe get a jump start. I thought it would be fun to paint the pots, this lets Tyler help but also helps him paint a MASTERPIECE.
He really enjoyed painting and it was whatever he wanted.

He started with the color GREEN

He moved on to YELLOW, RED & BLUE

He really enjoyed painting his hands, I think more than anything

We waited for the pots to dry and then we put the soil in our pots

This is after Tyler planted his flowers

VOILA! Our little garden.

We will be adding to our garden. We have 2 kinds of flowers planted right now along with PUMPKINS and BEANS. We will see how they grow. If nothing else, Tyler and I had a great afternoon together.
