Mini Moments

I am trying to catch up here before we take a little beach trip next week!

One day I decided to pack a picnic lunch before picking Mae up from pre-school. It's easier to take a lunch somewhere than bring them back and have them eat in the kitchen!

It was really nice until Mae wet her pants. Ahhh, toddlers.

Zeke loves playing in the dirt. He is ready for the beach!

Drawing her Mother's Day cards. Mae said "Moma Lubbb is BLUE!!!"

The day after Bo's graduation Mae had her class party at the jumpy place in town, so the big kids went home with Papaw and Mamaw after graduation. The little kids and I had fun that next day!

Here's a couple of videos of Mae at the jumpy party:

We played in a box:

And took a walk:

Big Kids:

We had field day with our homeschool group recently at the state park. They had a great time playing the games and enjoying their friends!

One of the games was a water relay, where you soak the sponge at the front of the line, pass it back, and squeeze the water out at the back of the line. The first to fill the container wins. Here's Arabelle and Bo's team in action.  Here's Mae and Arabelle in the egg on spoon race.

We've been enjoying a little more free time on our school break.

Dinosaur village:

One morning the big kids went out and picked some blueberries and brought them in for me to make muffins. Mae was a good helper!

Then they made a zoo while Zeke was napping. He destroyed it when he got up.....that didn't go over very well.

Mamas and their babies:

I had to wake Zeke up one afternoon to go to swim practice and he looked too sweet not to take a picture! Here's a video of him trying to wake up. He was a little surprised to see me standing there when he opened his eyes. :)

We don't do kid baths every night, but Mae earned hers this one!

Arabelle finally finished her 500 piece puzzle!

Pool and sprinkler fun:

The kids enjoyed giving Spot his first bath:

And Zeke liked the puddles it made:

Climbing Mae (video):

Zeke has learned to pick his own blueberries and is a pro!

We are bust celebrating birthdays this week, so lots of pictures to come!

Zeke's 12 mo Check Up

Zeke had his 12 mo check up and shots the day after he turned a year old. He did great!

He was 21 lb even, which is the 45th percentile. Pretty funny considering he was nearly 11 lb at birth! I told the pediatrician at his 4 mo check up that he would be around the 50th percentile at a year, so I was pretty close.
Zeke is 30 inches tall (57th percentile) and his head circumference is 46.5 cm (63rd percentile).

Mother's Day

Mother's Day weekend was a fun one! We went to Pineview on Saturday and celebrated Zeke and Mae's birthdays early AND Mother's Day.

Zeke was very popular when he had his cupcake!

He loved it at first taste:

Mae wanted a Doc McStuffins cake and she was so proud of it.

Arabelle and Bo were so excited for Mae and Zeke.


Mae was really excited about the PURPLE plant she picked out for Grandma for Mother's Day.

Arabelle and Bo swam in the chilly pool water for a little while, but didn't make it long.

Birthday gifts:

The picture was a struggle, but we got it. Ha!

I love my babies!

I told the kids I wanted to swim in the creek with them for Mother's Day and they were excited!! The water was low and nasty looking, but I sucked it up and got in. 

They each made me a gift in Sunday School and it was so sweet! The middles potted flowers and painted a pot. Arabelle's was a chocolate candy shaped like a flower on a stick in a chocolate pudding cup with crunched up Oreos. It was a treat we all enjoyed!

Bo has just learned to draw hearts....pretty good!

We are so thankful for the wonderful mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and other women in our lives!
