Goodness gracious, I love the weekends. Daddy is home, which means so many things. First and foremost, I love getting to laugh at these boys with him. They really are so stinking funny and I love getting to share that with him. I love the moments that we look at each other and just revel in the fact that these boys are ours. This life is ours. Secondly, 2 more hands! Yep, I am blessed with a very involved daddy.. something I am thankful for every single day!
Here is what we were up to!
The wild one...
Oh, my Cade man. You really can't turn your back on this one. Within minutes of me taking this picture the top (yes, the top. notice that left foot propped on the bag of blocks. Brother was using it to reach the top shelf) and middle shelf were almost empty. Took me much longer to put them back up.
He loves the dishwasher. As in will hightail it to the kitchen if he hears me open it. I figured out it was the water, so I solved that little problem. Yes, he got soaking wet, but I also got to unload the dishwasher without him pulling the entire bottom rack out.
My big boy...
I didn't have plans to turn Connor's bed into a toddler bed, but for some reason I just decided to this weekend. We are going to purchase a full size mattress soon, but figured why not take off the front of his crib until then? He was PUMPED! I knew he would do fine because he has been sleeping in a big bed at grandparent's houses whenever we visit. I just love being able to cuddle him up in the covers for our nighttime routine. I can't wait until it's a bed I can actually climb into, too!
Good food and family fun...
My father in law texted me Saturday morning asking if we wanted to meet at Cracker Barrel. We asked Connor if he wanted to go and as soon as he heard the words Cracker Barrel, he was running into his room to get dressed. He loves that place. The fact that Rowen was there (he had stayed the night with BeBe and D-daddy), was an awesome bonus. Each time we are around Rowen gets better than the last. Their interaction just keeps growing and I love that!
When we got home the snow that had been slowly falling had accumulated on our patio furniture. Enough so that we were able to make some snowballs. I was super shocked that Connor wanted to play outside in it. Just further proof that he is growing up!
|Love the bottom right. Truly shows his silly personality!|
Afterwards Matt had to burn some brush and Connor wanted to go out with him. I put some coveralls on top of his other clothes and I could not quit laughing at how big he was. He told me, "I can't walk, Mommy. I'm too big!"
I really don't think he could bring his arms any closer to his body or bring his legs closer together!
After Cade woke up, I put him at the window so I could clean out his closet (I had not put away ANY clothes of his since he grew out of NB and they were all at the top of his closet. It was a disaster) and he could watch Connor play. After a few minutes Connor decided he wanted to come in, too. So they sat there for probably 30 minutes watching daddy "make a fireplace"
|They held hands like this for the longest time|
I bought these longalls before Cade was even born. I was so excited to finally put them in it!
These outtakes just make me laugh. Sometimes they are my favorite.
After the boys napped (because let me tell ya..those are so necessary on sundays) we headed out to make a Sam's trip. I think you get such a better deal on their produce and we go through it like crazy around here!
There you have it. A busy, but simple weekend. My favorite kind!
