Memorial Day

Me and my little baby muse went out yesterday for a photo shoot...

I wanted to try to make these fire-cracker rockets and I think they turned out so cute :)  Since it's another month until July 4, I thought I'd go ahead and share them today.

God Bless America and all those who died defending her.

Our first sprinkler fun of the summer!!

He still has his shoes on because we started out fully dressed and being sprayed with the water hose.  Then the sprinkler came out and the shirt came off, but he still wanted his shoes on so he could "run really fast"  :)

Lazy Saturday Outside

Just a few pictures from yesterday, hanging outside, per normal the last couple of weekends :)

My Mother's Day flowers from Dex & Anna:

Dex with his flower that he planted ALL BY HIMSELF!

Watering the flowers:

Watering me and Annabel!

Baby blue eyes :)

Look at those legs!!  She's finally realized that she much prefers standing up to sitting down.

Blurry, but I'm posting anyway :)

Trying to get me with the kids in the picture (with me holding the camera)... it's harder than it looks!!  But look how awesome I did at getting Dex's water guns going off just perfectly!

I'm working on getting a lot of my iPhone pictures on Instagram so I can blog them here in one post... again, harder (and more time consuming) than it sounds like it should be!  Tomorrow, maybe??!

A Weekend with Pop & Emi

Poppy & Emi came to Grapevine this weekend.  We had such fun :)  We took Anna and Dex out to the lake to take some "official" 9 month photos of the little girl.  (Funny - if anyone asks what her name is, Dex pipes up really loudly "PICKLE ANNIE"!  We get some strange looks... The other day he just said "PICKLE!" and that look was even more strange (stranger??)).

Emi helped me with Anna...

While Poppy taught Dex how to skip rocks.

Both Saturday and Sunday we hung out in the yard on a blanket in the sunshine.  It was sooooo nice.  I can't begin to explain how happy I am that we are having Spring weather!

The littlest Ranger fan of the family.  The story behind the hat is that she was fascinated with Poppy's ball cap.  Every time he'd put it on, she would want him to hold her and she would just pull on the rim until he took it off and put it on her.  Then she'd just leave it on like it belonged there and smile and smile!  So Sean finally went and got one of Dex's hats that was a little smaller for her, and she wore it most of the afternoon.  So silly!

Look!  She can stand up all by herself  :) 


Poppy & his little buddy.

And finally the whole crew!

Such a great weekend!

Anna Update - 9 months!

Little girl is 9 months old!

We had her check-up this week and she's:

20.2 lbs - 80th percentile
29 inches tall - 96th percentile

Big girl :)

She also just cut her first tooth!  I tried to take a picture of it, and I can kinda see it, but that may just be because I know what it looks like...

Love the puff on her shirt, but that's totally her.  She's always got them stuck everywhere.

She eats everything.  Having no teeth has not slowed her down, that's for sure.  I guess that's why she's 20.2 pounds!

Love our little BIG girl  :)
