Easter and Carter turns 11 months old!!

Sometimes I get a bit sad over this blog and how it's mostly a place for me to photo dump and keep a quick record of things that are going on. Sometimes I miss those days when I would blog for hours just typing up my thoughts and experiences at a leisurely pace.

However, the reason (the two reasons) I am not able to do that anymore are well worth it :) They are the two things I blogged about having someday! My little wishes-come-true. Just sometimes I feel a little guilt that I don't keep it up as often as I should. As well as reading and commenting on other blogs.

On that note...cheers to another photo dump!!!

Just doesn't get any better. Blessed.


I mean...come on...

St. Patrick's Day Parade and Carter turns 10 months!

My brother and my sister-in-law throw a fun St. Patrick's Day parade every year. They own a home on the parade route. So it is very convenient! We had a lot of fun! And our little man turned 10 months old!

This week we switched him to a convertible car seat and he said his first word "Mama"! Very happy about this as Samantha said "Dada" first :)

Cheeks for days.......
Pretty girl
Big boy! Last pic in his infant seat!
Mini BFF's
Slept through the whole parade! Even the sirens and bag pipers didn't wake this guy!
A boy and his Papa
They love each other!
Doesn't get much more handsome.
St. Patrick's Day flashback. Her first St. Pat's Day was in the NICU in 2012.

Samantha's 3rd Birthday

A few weeks ago our baby girl became not so much a baby anymore! Samantha turned 3 years old! Please join me in shaking our heads in disbelief....

She had a Paw Patrol themed party and a gymanstics place here. And she had a BLAST! It was all worth it...the planning...the $$$$! Everything was worth it to see the joy on her little face :)

She also had her 3 year appt on Monday. And I am SO happy to report that in the first time in 3 years...she did not cry or scream at the doctor's office. Which was huge for all of us! :) Only too 3 years. haha. She used to be so scared to
go! Her stats are:

26lbs 9oz
11th percentile for height
4th percentile for weight

She is still a peanut princess!!!

Here are a few pics from her birthday!
