Mini Petting Zoo

We had an opportunity to see some farm animals in a backyard setting today! I can confidently say Liam's favorite part was the very first thing we did...seeing the ponies. He laughed the most nervous and funniest laugh I have heard from him. He wasn't as timid as I expected him to be and wanted to stick his fingers through the fence into the pony's nose. He got a little lip nibble on the hand at one point and laughed even harder. We had a great time. Thank you Nikki, Pop, and uncle Ryan for taking us! Liam had fun seeing Emma, Mark and Rindy again too!

He was all about Reba the cow...

Until she turned around.

Impromptu porch swim dates.
Sweaty boys.
Blonde hair.
Hotwheels cars.
Swim diapers.
Tie dye.

The tail end of a kiss. Melt!

Riley-23 months

Hayden-wonderfully 8


Revive the sink bath.

They rule for so many reasons...
1. No kneeling
2. No bending
3. Enough said.

He's come a long way from when he had no eyelashes and brows on his very first birthday.

He agrees.

10 months old!

I absolutely cannot believe our baby is 10 months old! Time truly does fly. I feel like I say that every time I post his monthly photo.

Liam weighs 22 pounds now! He has two teeth and loves being in his tiny pool or baby swing. He has started to confidently crawl (!) and has waved once. His newest trick is using one finger to touch things, just one, just the pointer finger. He is the best baby!

We also received our Citrus Lane box. These special deliveries are so exciting for me Liam to open! Something always gets used immediately. This time it was the truck while on a Target run.

Peeking in his room at the crawling baby.

The hands!
Crawling for the first time...can't believe I actually got it on camera. He just suddenly decided to do it and we couldn't be more proud.

Father's Day post

We had a wonderfully relaxing Father's Day as a family of 3.

Liam has softened his dad and made him a father. I can sense the joy that Robbie feels when he comes home and gets to see us. Liam lights up when he sees his dad. He loves watching Robbie and it makes my momma heart happy that he has such a great role model to look up to. I can't wait to see their relationship grow as sports and manly outings are introduced.

It was indeed a Happy Father's Day.

Such trust in those hands.

No diaper butt? Yes please.

Swing Set

We made a memory tonight. We used the swing set.

I love having the ability to photograph these moments. 

That's just bedhead, he's not actually swinging at warp speed.

Also, the classic Levi's overalls shortalls (?) were enjoyed this week.
