Busy Bee's

The past few weeks have been filled with visits from many family members, and we are so happy that everyone has been able to come out and see us. Traveling with 2 little ones is a whole different story, and unfortunately can't happen as often as it did before. Baby "Olibya" graced us with her presence all last week, and she brought her parents along too. Small detail. Adella adored her, and Nolan just thought she was another toy to toss around. Unfortunately we were hit with a week of "May Gray" but we did our best to keep the kids entertained and even made it for a day at Disney. The pictures below were taken with my iPhone, so they are not of the best quality. This has turned out to be one of the downfalls of owning an iPhone... the convenience of snapping quick photo's and e-mailing them, has outweighed the inconvenience of pulling out the big cannon and waiting 25 minutes for them to download.

Adella likes to "pat" babies
Upon entering the realm of Small World.... I know this is a weird picture of me, but in case you were wondering where Nolan's gorgeous chin came from.... poor kid.

Our Garden is really starting to thrive. This year we've decided to try a few new things, white corn, celery, eggplant, and pumpkin to name a few. We "practice organic gardening", with a few exceptions. Most of the vegetables that we started from seeds are all organic, but a few of the more mature plants that we purchased (white corn) are not. We make sure to always use organic soil, fertilizers, and pesticides when needed. It's pretty cool to be able to grow your own food, and Adella loves naming off all of the veggies growing, as well as "helping" to water. I say "helping", because it can create more work, but it's probably good for her to do some chores around the house. These photo's were taken from my phone, so the quality could be better, but it gives you an idea of how it is looking today.

Her first pair of Rainbows!

Oh yes, and this happened. Again...

Resemblance, no?
Such a striking pair!

Easter Part Deux

After our own little family Easter celebration at home, we went over to Pops and Tutu's for their annual party. The kids were treated to awesome baskets, and another candy hunt.

A few of these were taken with EmilyWadeAdamses new lens, that I am kind of obsessing over.

Easter Part Uno

"Are we going to see the white bunny or the black one", "the white one", "Oh, cuz the white one don't talk very well".

This holiday was more for Adella, than Nolan. He still doesn't know what the hay is going on. We kept the baskets small, knowing that Tutu would have all sorts of goodies for the kids. But Adella was still shocked when she came down the stairs to find that the Easter Bunny had left her a basket and eggs to find. It was a wet morning, but she loved searching around the backyard for eggs.

All of that candy was gone in a matter of minutes.

8 Months

Nolan is 8 months!! He is now pulling up to standing on EVERYTHING. So we had to lower his crib all the way down. He is really fast at crawling now, and gets around quickly, which makes it even more difficult to get anything done around the house. We have heard him utter the word "mama", but it usually comes out as "mamamamamama", and we're starting to encourage "mimi" over "mama". It's amazing how different he is from when Adella was the same age, the whole boy thing really stands out. He's rough with toys, much more adventurous, and HUGE. But they do have the same deep belly giggle. Adella is still the apple of his eye, and they play really well together. She is always telling me if he gets into something that he shouldn't have, and watching out for him. We've been going to the pool every week, and Nolan loves being in the water and watching the older kids play.

This is a typical Nolan face... big squeezable cheeks.


... of the adorable monthly photo project that I'm working on.

Adella doesn't weigh much more than Nolan now.

May Day

I forgot! Happy May Day! Hope you rubbed some morning dew on your face.

It's a good day to swing in an egg chair.

We have been MIA, but we'll be back in no time. I am working on Nolan's 8 month photo, and Easter pictures as well. In the mean time, check out those chiclets....

And she got a ghost chair before her Mimi...

I know, I know.... it's not about me anymore. But she is still just the Princess in training...
