Soooo Big

When did this baby get so big!! This is the best dollar I ever spent on this hard plastic dinosaur! We got him at the Russellville Wal-Mart during our trip home at Christmas! Kaitlin strolls him in his stroller and carries him around like a baby. She acts like he is so cuddly and hugs him all the time! Best dollar ever!


Look who else is getting so big!!


This little smile makes my day!



Love my babies even if they seem to be growing faster every day!

Play Ball

Kaitlin had a wonderful weekend playing outside and working on her batting skills!


Kids are so competitive these days Kory is worried we are not on a traveling tball team yet! I mean she is 3 years old so we are really behind!


Just kidding but Kaitlin has the arm of a potential pitcher we just need to work on her aim!


They had so much fun!! Love her face of pure joy!


Then they moved on to golf!!


Can’t forget Kaitlin’s biggest fan!!


He slept thru all the fun but we know he will out there very soon! 8 weeks old is too young to start hand- eye coordination training!!

Baby Love

We are busy busy around here so it has been so nice to snap pictures on my phone! I have caught some cute moments!

Colin is just amazed by his big sister and this was a sweet moment watching Kaitlin dance!


Kaitlin had Earth Day celebrations this week at school! She was ready to get dirty planting some flowers!


Baby Colin is growing out of some of his clothes which is a great sign of a healthy baby but it is sad to see him getting big so fast! He is not chunky in the arms or legs but he is really long and his toes are poking out of his smaller sleepers! So So thankful for a growing boy!


Sweet Boy looks great in orange!!

It is amazing how much you forget about the first few months of having a newborn ! I had totally forgotten how many outfits babies wear everyday! And how crazy each brand of clothing fits so differently! It is a new learning curve with a boy but it is so much fun!

Kaitlin and Jake

Kaitlin says the funniest things these days and her imagination is growing more and more! She plays “Jake and the Never land Pirates”with Kory and they hunt for buried treasure!She calls herself Izzy,the girl on the Disney cartoon, and refers to Kory as Jake! Here she is searching for “treasure”!

Kaitlin LOVES animals and can name almost every kind out there! We were at an office that had oceans paintings and Kaitlin named them all correctly. There was a huge black and white whale that I referred to as a “killer whale” Kaitlin corrected me and let me know it was an orca!

We have been strolling in the neighborhood and Kaitlin loves to play the game “red-light- green light” with us!

We had some rain last week and were trying to explain to Kaitlin that it was wet outside so she requested a paper towel! She was quite disappointed when that was not the quick fix she was hoping for! She is such a funny funny girl!

Birthday Party

Kaitlin had an amazing birthday party at The Little Gym this weekend!

The balance beam was her favorite station and I was very impressed at her balance and grace! She probably walked the beam 25 times or more during the party! Training for the Olympics may start any day!

Kaitlin dunking the ball! Coach Pat Summit would be so proud!

The party was wonderful and Kory has decided to never have a party at our house again! It was so nice to show up to the with cupcakes and not worry about anything!

Kaitlin's 3rd Birthday 051

They had everyone  introduce themselves at the party and the birthday girl proudly announced herself as “Kaitlin Grace.” It was so precious! I’d never heard her say her first & middle name together.

The party room was so quiet once the cupcakes and cookies were served!

Adjusting to a brother

Kaitlin has figured out that Colin will be staying at our house and is becoming a little more curios about the whole baby idea! She loves to look at him and is really checking him out. Kaitlin gets so worried when he cries in the car and will try to console him and will sing to him. It melts my heart to see her have such compassion!


She also has turned into a good little momma putting her babies in the bouncer!


She walks up to him and shakes his hand saying “nice to meet you”

She shows him the treasures that she finds!

Most importantly she loves to be a big help and brings me burps cloths and pacifiers! She is a great big sister and I can’t wait to see their interaction increase as Colin gets older.
