Little Picasso

Reid painted me a beautiful picture outside the other morning!

I love how neat he is. Wanted 4 paint brushes ... 1 for each color.

It's a little hard to tell but he painted a triangle, circle, and square for me. :)

Can you see it?! Haha

My beauty!

We had a mini photo shoot Sunday! Things didn't start well as you can see by Maci's little pouty lip.

....but then she started posing!

She knows she is cute!

LOVE her!!!! This smile brings a huge amount of joy to our lives! So thankful for God's sweet grace!

Celebrating this guy is a real JOY! Patrick works so hard to provide for us and loves us all so well. We are blessed to have him around!

The kids and I got him a new grill! It was supposed to be a surprise but Reid was to excited and told him immediately after I bought it.

Papa and nana came for dinner. We got to celebrate papa too! My kids are sure blessed to have the best daddy and papa around!

Swim lessons

Reid took swim lessons with Miss Jessica a couple of weeks ago. His friends Kate and Kylie were in the class also. He did great! Started the week off a little timid. He didn't want to put his face in the water and was uncomfortable on his back. Miss Jessica had all good things to say by the end. He even learned to crawl out of the pool on his very own!

Here are the kids getting to know their teacher.

Sitting so patient... Listening and waiting their turn!

Maci and Hollis

This is Maci with her sweet friend Hollis. I have the pleasure of working with Hollis's mommy! We got to share crazy pregnancy life together.

Hollis is 7weeks younger than Maci.... This is their first playdate!

Playdate number 2. Hollis makes my Maci girl look like a giant.... We love her anyways!

Going in for a hug....

So sweet Maci decided to kiss her back!

I am excited to watch these two grow up and play together!

Reid is a big boy!

It is official... Our boy is potty trained!
We woke up Tuesday morning with about 10 diapers left. Instead of using them we threw them away (or we pretended to!) Reid did so well! He tried every 30 minutes day 1 with NO accidents!... And almost filled up his potty chart for his scooter prize.

Day 2 the potty chart got filled!!!!!!!!!!!! So proud!

Reid singing on his new scooter!

Got a cake ball for going poop! Ha!

By Thursday I had made a trip to target for new underwear! We are all stocked up!

His signal that he needs to go is "oh oh oh oh" and takes off running. We are SO excited and thankful to have reached this milestone!

This is a picture of Maci and Reid at the same age. I can't believe this!!! The only difference is Reid somehow looks more manly and Maci somehow looks more girly!

Beach babe

We took the kids to the spray park Friday! Reid was to busy swimming and I never got his picture. We were so proud watching him crawl in and out of the pool alone! Maci and I kicked back in the shade and relaxed!

Having fun with my favorite two year old!

.... And then he crashed in Maci's bed!

Apparently you are never to old for a nap nanny!


Aunt Laci came to town and we got to have a cousins day! FUN!! Parker is just a couple of months older than Maci and Reid thinks he is so cool! We are excited to watch these three grow up together!

Typical Reid :)

I just thought these pictures were funny. I tried to get a cute picture of the two of them and this is typically what Reid likes to do.... Be a crazy man. Love him for that!!!

A couple more of my attempts!...

Maci had had enough!

Super Reid!

Reid and Hayden being superheroes!

Sweet brother!

Reid really is a very special big brother. I am so proud of how well he loves Maci. Last night he helped me bathe his baby sister. We are having fun and making lots of memories!
