Fun day

We had a fun afternoon! We got Arabelle's new sand table today & Jared brought home sand and a pool! After the much needed rain yesterday, we were ready to get out and enjoy the sunshine! I also enjoyed toying with the manual options on my camera. I got a few good looking shots, if I do say so myself.

Upset because I stopped him from eating grass.

Daddy is bringing a pool home!

Tasted the sand....

He can walk behind the car now!

Easter Weekend

We had a fun weekend celebrating our risen Savior!

Friday, a package arrived from Papa and Grandma LaVell. Arabelle was SO exited! Bo was napping when the box came, so I didn't get a picture of him with his bunny.
She drank out of the bunny cup all weekend.
Her first chocolate bunny!

She likes it! Sorry Papa & Grandma, I didn't let her eat it all. ;)

That afternoon, we colored eggs at Aunt Jane's house. Arabelle was very careful with the eggs and made some pretty ones.

Saturday, we went to the Easter Celebration at our church. Arabelle looked like such a big girl down front with all the other kids, listening to the Easter story and singing songs.

They had plastic and real eggs hidden for her age group. She would only pick up the plastic eggs though because the real eggs were wet. haha!

Bo was not interested in hunting eggs. Poor thing!

Arabelle and her friend, Brianna
Saturday afternoon, Lindsey, Brian, Caleb, Mamaw, & Papaw came over. I don't know why I didn't get many pictures. :(

Sunday, Arabelle and Bo checked out their Easter baskets, Arabelle hunted eggs, we went to church, then to Grandmother's for lunch.

She was saying "Purple!".

Bo is 8 months old!

I can not believe I am typing that Bo is 8 months old! When people ask, I have to think....I want to say 6 mo. still.

  • Bo, you weigh about 20.5 lbs. You have slowed down a lot since you started crawling. 
  • You are taking 2 naps each day. Usually they are 40 minutes. Sometimes 80 minutes. I am hoping & praying for longer naps soon. You go to bed between 6:00 & 7:00 and wake around 6:00. You still wake 1-3 times per night to nurse. 
  • You still nurse 4-5 times during the day and 1-3 times at night. I offer you food when we eat. Sometimes you eat some, sometimes you don't want to touch it. You are getting a bit better about eating though. You LOVE pizza crust!
  • You are crawling all over the house. You and Arabelle love to play in the hallway. She runs up and down the hall and you follow her. Both of you laugh and laugh.
  • You pull up on just about anything and have started cruising along the sofa. When I go to get you from the crib, you are always standing up.
  • You are a quiet, observant little boy. 
  • You are really showing a lot of separation anxiety. I hate it, but know it's normal. 

Silly face!

Spring Break

Arabelle had Spring Break from "school" this week, so we packed up and headed to Fernandina with Leigh-Leigh, Aunt Julee Brooke, Rhianna, Gigi, Tripp, & Mamaw for a few days. It was so much fun! Arabelle LOVES the beach. I really love to see her face light up and see her dancing around on the beach because she is so happy to be there. Give her some beach toys and she can play for hours. :) Bo liked it pretty good too. He took a bite of sand on Mon. & Tue. I guess he remembered by Wed. that he didn't like to eat it. ha!

I love Bo's arm up in this one!

Her first ice cream cone!

She was so happy, she was jumping down to the ocean.

The whole gang!

Again, pure happiness!

Sambo came down on Wednesday

We are excited to go again later this summer with Jared!
