Evie is 11 months old; Eric is 2 and a half years old!

Eric has decided to start calling Mook "meow meow" but it sounds more like "nay nay" when he says it, lol!

Evie is walking better and better everyday! She is even turning corners without falling down now! And today while I was feeding her I noticed she is making some molar-type teeth!!!

Evie and I went outside for a sweet spring photoshoot.

We had to show off the blooming narcissus flowers.

It was a pretend tea party with flowers.

And in the end, the flowers sort of become potpourri, lol.

While helping daddy get the garden ready...

Eric remembered how much fun it is to play outside in the backyard!

I help him make the letter "E" with water on the patio cement.

I'm so glad he remembered! And he is too!

I got him a couple of those punching bag balloons and he really likes them! he does real well punching it as you can see. Then near the end of the video when he stops, I ask him to smile at the camera and he does, lol! What a ham! Click the image to watch the video.

Evie is 10 months and four weeks old; Eric is 2 and a half years old!

Eric is now calling Bailey "ruff ruff" but it sounds more like "woo woo." Evie walked 21 steps without falling down on Feb 25!

Now that the weather is getting nicer again, we are trying to take Eric to the park more often, he loves it!

Eric never used to like swinging, but recently it has become lots of fun!

Evie also likes to swing!

Swings are one of Momma's favorites too!

Eric goes down the biggest slide all by himself!

There he goes! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!

I helped Evie go down the little red slide.

Dada helps her go down the big slide!

I was shocked to watch Eric climb up this ladder thing like it was no big deal!

How cute are these Minnie Mouse overalls?!?!

Little Miss will never be left out of anything, if you stop paying attention to her even for a second she knows just how to get your attention, "Mommmaaaa, I pulled all your books down, now I'm heading over to poke Dada's guitar..."

My girl LOVES cheese! I was shocked while watching an episode of Martha when Martha asked her panel of discussion folks what food they couldn't live without and not one of them said cheese!!!

She's about to be naughty, lol!

Evie is 10 months and three weeks old; Eric is 2 and a half years old!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Evie took 5 steps and then held on to the table (didn't fall down!) on Feb 10th!

Our Princess takes a step!

Here's another step! Her shirt says, "50% Mommy, 50% Daddy, 100% CUTE!" and look at the sweet silver flower detailing on her khakis!

Daddy and Evie build a Mega-Blocks city, then have a goldfish cracker break!

Eric made a Valentine craft at school. The 4 circles in each corner are dinosaur stickers.

Eric and Evie at school with all their Valentine Day loot! Eric is smiling because he knows brownies are on the way, lol!

You can't buy dinosaur Valentines around here anywhere, so I made 45 valentines for each child in Eric's class.

Eric received 9 and Evie received 1!   :(

Thank you Lisa for the cute (and delicious looking) outfits!!!

Overall, we had a very nice Valentine's Day. Scott got pizza and I rented a movie and made a new 'blondie' recipe for dessert (think brownies without the cocoa). It took us almost 4 hours to watch this 2 hour movie (the kids kept needing something), but it was a really good movie. I wouldn't call "Centurian" a romantic Valentine movie, lol, but we both enjoyed it.

Evie is 10 months and two weeks old; Eric is 2 and a half years old!

Eric's new thing is turning on every light in the house just because he can, lol. Evie is learning how to communicate with Eric via various screetching, I'm sure the neighbors just love us, lol!

The breakfast of champions: shredded mini wheats, no milk, and apple juice infused with a flintstones vitamin!

I was trying to get Evie to smile for a picture, I kept asking her to smile over and over again, finally Eric sat down in front of me and smiled. I'm not sure if he was sick of hearing me ask or figured if Evie wasn't going to do it, somebody should, lol!

Even tho its way before his time, Eric knows who Fonzi is and will stick his thumb up and say, "Aaaaaaa!" His new sunglasses make him extra cool just like Fonzi! Thanks for the cool glasses Papa Steve and Gran!

Scott heads out to the trails with his buddy Steve (notice that he is sporting his brand new hydration pack - its the thing that looks like a backpack but is full of water and snacks and tools etc!)

Here are the trails - YIKES! Yes that is Steve's bike way up there!

Here is Scott on the trails - thanks for the pix Steve!

Evie sits in a restaurant high chair for the first time on Feb 1. She liked being part of the eating action!

A special treat from Papa Steve and Gran!

Eric is ready for the big game! He's got on his Blue's Clues Super Bowl Shirt and his Super Bowl Balloon in hand!

Our team didn't win, but we had fun tossing the old pigskin around the livingroom!

From 10 months old Jan 25 to Feb 24
"Come on, Eeee!" he tells her and they race down the hallway! Click the image and you will be taken to the video.
