These boots were made for walking...

Owen has started to walk! I am so excited. So far he just takes a few steps to something he can hold on to, however this morning he actually took about 10 steps to no where! I was able to get him on camera finally taking a few steps. He won't do it if he knows I am filming though, so that is why it is his back side. :)

sick, sick and more sick...

Our house has been hit. Hit with the sick bug. The crazy thing is, is that it just doesn't seem to go away! Poor Ian has been sick since last Friday. Tummy issues. :(

I got it one day, but I think it is hitting kids harder for some reason. Although, I will say that it is taking its toll on me too. I am used to being able to get out of the house and do things and I haven't been able to do that since Sunday! Last night I got out and got us dinner, but for some reason it just isn't the same as getting out during the day. Getting out at night takes away my time from Justin.

Anyways, just needed to vent a little bit. My attitude isn't very good this morning. I need to get moving so perhaps I will start to feel better (attitude that is).

free printables...

I found a super cute blog called Sweet Blessings. It is so fun and cute! I absolutely love it. She has these really cute printables that are free! FREE I tell you! I printed one and put it in a frame that I had purchased at a garage sale a while back. What do you think?

Ian turned 3 today...

Can you believe my baby is 3? I can't! He just gets funnier and funnier everyday! I love him so much and am so proud of the little boy he is becoming. We spent some time outside today and enjoyed the nice weather. Then we finished up with him having a car shaped sandwich with a candle in it!

Speical Agent Oso birthday party...

Today we celebrated Ian's 3rd birthday! Of course he doesn't actually turn 3 until the 18th, however we have several friends that have his same birthday or close to it so we opted to celebrate early rather than compete for times on the actual day.

My awesome husband made the invitations! He is awesome! What, I said that already? Well it needs to be mentioned twice. Here are the invitations that he made, Special Agent Oso was our theme!

The cake was made by none other than Lacye's Cakery and Cookies. The cake was YUMMY! I am realizing that the more people you invite to the party the less cake you take home. So, um, yeah some of Ian's friends have got to go, I want more of her cake left over! Just kidding, but it is that good. And isn't the art on it amazing too? Yep it is!

Here are a few more pictures from his party. We are so blessed to be able to have had it at our church. We had lots of fun and are so blessed by all of our friends and family.

lessons being learned...

Today we went and visited a little girl at the hospital. She was so cute and sweet. She acted as though she had known us forever. I hadn't seen her since she was just a baby and now she is 4 1/2.

Anyways, not really the point of the story.

On our way we stopped at Starbucks to get LG's (this is the little girls name and no, it doesn't stand for little girl) mom an apple cider. Ian kept saying how much he likes starbucks, like he goes there all the time or something. He then asked if he could have a drink of the apple cider and I told him no it is for our friend. This led to a huge crying fest and fit throwing fest. Not a fun ride to the hospital.

Fast forward to when Justin got home and we were telling him about our day. I was explaining to Justin the story about the apple cider fit and Ian spoke up and said "yeah, I cried and screamed" Justin then asked him "was that right or wrong?" and Ian said "wrong".

The point of this story is that lessons are being learned. Some times it just takes a few tears (both his and mine) to get it through to him!

My baby is 14 months old...

Owen is 14 months old today! I can't believe how much he has changed. He now has 5 teeth, which explains a lot about the way he has been acting lately. :)

I also had to share this picture. I just think it is so cute. Owen looking up at Daddy and Daddy looking down at Owen. Heart warming!

Picture post...

This is Ian at age 17 months.

This is Owen at age 14 months

Ian and Owen playing catch.

We bought a Leapster LeapPad at a garage sale last summer and Ian seems to really like it!

Ian's "first" day of school. I forgot my camera on his real first day of school so I told him we would pretend that his second day was really his first. :) Because that is the kind of mom I am.

Our friends Lindsey and Kyle invited us over to their neighborhood swimming pool a few weeks ago. Of course now they have moved and we will miss them a lot!
