So i don't forget...

There are so many little things that happen each day with these munchkins that I know I will soon miss. I don't want to forget the cute little things that happen on a day to day basis so I think I will start having some 'so i don't forget' posts just to share some of those little moments. Here are a few from the last couple of weeks :)

Monkeys or any animal on their heads

Those eyes !

Snack time outside in the sun

Morning sun shared by Jeff, Hudson, and some amazing peonies

Sweet spaghetti faces :) 

H sporting this bandage after falling over the preschool stairs! Not too sure I want to remember this one too clearly...he was such a trooper!

Lots of finger marks and squishy faces

Loving these mini trampolines at Tumblebums - her first trip to this very fun place!


Fully enjoying a trip to Tumblebums

Hanging out on the trampoline

Enjoying some Goodnight Moon

Underwear for hats of course :) 

His long awaited Lego set arrived via snail mail moments before this photo

Paining outside in the afternoon sun

E loves climbing into H's bed and cuddling with the blankets

Fathers Day ice cream - also the day E took her first steps!

First Birthday Fun!

Our little girl turned one a few weeks ago!

Wow.. and I thought the first year went by fast for the boys.. turns out it goes by even faster for number three. It has been an amazing year!

I took a few months off before E arrived and I am so grateful that I did that. The boys and I could enjoy some quality time together visiting gymnastics classes, the beach, parks, heck, we did so much!

The first few months with our new babe were very challenging.. she was happy, yet took hours to get her to fall asleep! It meant a lot of time with her strapped to us in the carrier. It's so nice to look back on it instead of being stuck in the middle of it :-p

During her first year E experienced her first camping trip, a big plane ride and visit to Auntie A and Uncle N in Australia, her first Christmas, a trip to Arizona, and many more firsts and exciting things that I can't think of right now.

Here are a few photos from her party :)  Thank you so much to everyone that came on two separate occasions to celebrate our little girls' birthday :)

Ooh, and I just noticed that this is my first post using photos from my new lens! Jeff bought me a Canon 50mm Prime 1.8 lens and it is amazing.  It took a bit of getting used to but I'm loving it :)
