Summer Time: Flowers, kids and fertilizer

I finally have flowers that have come into bloom! My Lillacs... do you see the huge bumblebee in the center? He was so cool, I only wish I was better with a camera and could have really gotten a great a shot- oh well( need mom here to capture the moment!) Then my bleeding heart, I thought I had O.D ed it last year on miracle grow- so when it came back this year I was so excited.

Austin loves bananas... if fact he ate 3 in a row... is that too much? A potassium over load or something!!

Then my cute little girl, who is now three months old. Crazy how time flys. she is pretty much sleeping through the night now. She is down for good around 10pm and then gets up at about 4:30am. Every once and a while she gets up before then but not often. Then she is up by 8am to conquer another day!

Sunday picture.... aren't her red toes adorable. I think so at least, Dallas thinks they are ugly and that she is "too young!"
Our little strawberry shortcake

Potty Training..... The other day Austin was grabbing at his diaper and saying "pee-pee" well I thought he had already gone so I wasn't thinking much of it. But he was being persistent- took his diaper off and ran to the bathroom. So I thought, ok lets go check it out. Sure enough he sat on the potty and went pee!! I was so excited.. he has gone 3 times since Friday. We still have a LONG ways to go, but its a start!

The fertilizer "KING". Dallas has been obsessed about weed and feed and spraying fertilizing.... everywhere. So we better have a beautiful yard this year... or else! I personally think he just likes riding his 4-wheeler around, especailly with the sprayer on the back. Hmmmmm.... sound like some else we know!?!

"RIDE" and Peek-a-Boo

Austin is crazy obsessive about riding the riding the 4-wheeler. He will go all day saying "ride, ride 4-wheeler". Dallas took him out for a ride, guess they were gone too long!

Miss Pais peeking out behind her blankie!
Well I missed it with the camera, but Paislee rolled over twice tonight from her belly to back. I had put her on the floor, then went to the window to watch Austin and Dallas, when I turned around she was on her back. So I flipped her back over and sure enough she did it again! By the time I grabbed the camera she was fussy and wouldn't roll over again... but she did do it!

HI Mommy!!

Growing up...

Miss Paislee is almost three months old ( 25th). She is coming out of the newborn baby look. She is smiling and cooing all the time now and really starting to show her personality. Can you believe I took these pictures with my cell phone!? Our digital died on us, so we currently don't have a camera, I was totally bummed. But a friend showed me how to email myself the pictures so I did and was amazed at how well they turned out!
A day full of Dr. appointments. Wednesday morning I had my last post delivery check up.. all is well! Then the kids both had check ups. My mom came down for the day to help me - thank goodness, I couldn't have done it by myself. Austin lucked out and didn't have to have any shots. At 22 months, he is 35 inches tall and 29 lbs- he is in the 90th percentile for his age. Dr. Suzie can't get over how strong he is and always tells me that he will be a great athlete with his strong built.. so we are counting on it! Miss Paislee wasn't so lucky :( She had her first set of shots. She weighted in at 12 lbs 9 oz. and 22.5 inches tall. Other than her loud nasally breathing she is healthy and beautiful, and she is in the 75th percentile. I'm so thankful to have healthy, strong beautiful children.

Happy Mothers Day

When the going gets TOUGH, the TOUGH call their mommies!

I had read this quote somewhere and thought it was perfect! I know there are many times I have called my mom for advice, comfort, love, sympathy... the list can go on forever.
So on this special Mother's Day, a huge Thankyou to my mom - who is always there for me. Thankyou to my mother in-law, who puts up with just as much crap from me as my own mother does. A special "Happy Mother's Day" to my Grandma Dilley and to my sister in-laws: Carly, Lisa, Lynette and Linley... I love you girls. Also, to my aunts and cousins ( and little miss Michelle, who will soon join this wonderful gang of mothers!)

Just Chillin'

It was Sunday, the day after the BBQ. We had just got home from church and Austin wanted to play outside, but Dallas and I weren't up to going out. We all got changed, Dallas opened the front door and just left it opened so that Austin could wonder in out as he pleased. After a while he was pretty quiet, Dallas got up to investigate and this is what he found. Austin had found his camping chair, pull it out and was just chillin' watching the sunset! Dallas came running inside, grabbed the camera and captured the moment.

Hi Daddy!
