March happenings

Slowly I am getting back into the routine of normal life and finding time to do things like blog. Campbell has been a perfect baby and Kellan's been a perfect big brother, but I am not saying he's been a perfect two year old !! He certainly has really, really been pushing the limits. But when it comes to Pister, he's a little gentleman.

Campbell moved out of her pack-n-play in our room and into her room the end of February and has been sleeping though the night in her big girl bed ever since. That alone makes life seem more normal. Naps on the other hand are yet to be routine. She has yet to nap in her crib, but with out fail she will fall fast asleep in her swing. My goal for this month (April) is to get the nap thing worked out. When Campbell's awake, she's the happiest little thing you ever did see. Loves to talk and giggle. And loves Kellan to talk to her. He will get right down to her level and baby talk just like we do to her and she just lights up. He will say "Hi Pister" over and over and give her lots of kisses.

Kellan is a little grown up, he helps me clean up, vaccum, cook, really anything I ask him. It amazes me all he can do, if I just ask. Oh and he can now open doors and climb the ladder to the fort of his swing set. Now poop in the potty, what ever, not quite that smart yet. He loves to run and play, loves his cars, boots, noodle and spending time with all his family.
He's so strong and can pull his wagon all over the place, currently its in my living room !!
Apparently his wagon had a mind of its own and he was quite upset with it.

Beau has decided he likes to cuddle with Campbell on her floor mat.

Yep, she's that much of a big girl. Freaks me out that she old enough to sit up.

Kellan and Campbell sharing some good quality play time together.

Kellan helping me make dips for his birthday party, I'm sure no one minded that his hands were all up in the dip !!
The days start off cool and warm up by afternoon, so Campbell's been having to change clothes mid day to accommodate the weather change. Plus she's got a bazillion spring/summer outfits and hair bows to wear !!

When I take pictures of Campbell, I think he gets a little jealous at times, so here was his "Cheeeeze" pose. Handsome boy !!
By the way, these are all pictures for March. More to come soon, hopefully !!

A Texas sized snow

I think everyone in the world knows us Texas folk where quite surprised when the flakes started falling February 11, 2010. It was like no other Texas winter I had ever experienced. And possibly the only snow filled Texas winter my kiddos will experience. Of course Campbell slept thru the whole thing.
Notice the flying dog in the back ground.

He's sitting on the snow.

Margo chasing Bella

I think you can tell from the pictures who enjoyed the snow the most. It brought out a different side of the doggies. Margo has never once played with Bella and Beau, but something about the snow, they all three played together.

Kellan's favorite part was daddy throwing snowballs in the air and watching Margo catch them with her mouth. Oh and his bubble car !

Where to begin?

Its clearly been a very, very long time since I have blogged and/or sent out any pictures. Something about 2 kids, 4 dogs, a over worked hubby, mini house remodel, Kellan's turning 2 and so on and on and on that's got me just a little busy. I really don't even know where to begin. The last few months have been quite a joy. Campbell is growing so fast, its hard to believe she's already 3 months. And Kellan........2 ALREADY. I don't understand. This was taken 1-20-10, so she was 1 month old

1-22-10. Kellan loves to do what ever Pister is doing
1-22-10. Both kids bathed and ready for nin-night
1-25-10. Kellan sitting in the dog bed, set of keys in one hand in front of an electrical outlet, what do you think he's thinking ? By the way the outlet does have a cover on it.
Mid Jan. Campbell just being pretty.
1-24-10. Kellan has discovered the snap and zipper on his jammies.
Campbell's not allowed to have the paci if Kellan's around.
Unless Kellan says so and gives it to her.
Kellan being Kellan. Car in one hand, juice in the other and his hard hat. This is from Jan.
Bite for Pister
Bite for Kellan. Feb. 22
Daily routine, mostly at bedtime. Kellan wants Pister to lay in bed with him for a few minutes before she gets feed and goes to bed.
2-14-10. Kellan putting sunshades on Campbell that he got from his school Valentines party.
That's all I have for now. I am determined to get caught up, so more to come soon, promise.
