Picture Updates

Found this little guy in our kitchen sink...*shiver!

First bath together (with mommy)

He really was enjoying himself...

Visiting sister in her bath...notice he got up himself!

Papa requested we take this picture to prove he was nice to Rusty at least once! He fed him water and bread, which Rusty loved!

Someone put some weights on that kid!

My Husband Rocks Friday!

Red's joined in on my health journey!

From his first sip, he's been addicted to coffee. He gave it up during our first pregnancy to encourage me, but since then it's been a staple.

Recently he's been wondering if his degrading eyesight might have to do with drinking too much caffeine so he did what all book worms do, he rented a book from the library called Caffeine Blues: Wake Up to the Hidden Dangers of America's #1 Drug. I haven't read it, but it seems to be convincing him that, despite all the the articles stating the opposite, coffee isn't healthy.

As a result, our next Azure order will contain Teeccino Herbal Coffee, a healthy caffeine-free alternative to coffee.

Honey, I love that you made this decision on your own! I love that you have the will-power to achieve your goals! I look forward to many more blooming years together!

New Friends

The past few weeks we've been visiting with others kids on the block. It started on one of our afternoon walks. A retired gentleman, Mike, down the street has his grandson with him every afternoon and then their neighbors' sons come over soon after. Karrots and Rusty have been the new addition to their little clique and they love it! So much so that Karrots gets excited every time we go out from hoping we're going to head on over to see her new friends.

Mike teaching Karrots to ride a tricycle

Mike has a few toys for Karrots to play with like a tricycle, bubble lawn mower and toy guitar. She knows they're in his garage and is always seeking them out once we arrive. She feels so much at home that she's attempted to get inside the house a few times! It's a chore to pull her away if the kids are still out playing.

We also found out that Mike's daughter (the mom of the little boy Karrots plays with) used to babysit me and my brother when we lived here back in the early 80's! Small world!

What an answer to prayer! While all the kids play I get adult conversation with the grandfather and the couple next door and occasionally the other boy's mom. It's also great to see the kids interacting with each other and having a group of people all sharing time and friendship.

Today we even invited the little girl across the street to join. She's a year or so older than Karrots. A new member?...
