Time Flies

I'm sorry it's been so long since I last blogged. We've been fairly busy with birthday parties, doctor's appointments for all three (actually 4) of us, out of town trips, out of town guests, and so on. 

In early March, we went to Pump It Up for Chloe's friend Naomi's 2nd birthday. Daddy got to take her on all the bouncy stuff. Since I was only 14 weeks or so pregnant, I chose to sit it out and just take pictures. If you know Chloe, it's very difficult to get any picture of her looking at the camera so we didn't have very many good shots of the party. By the way, isn't my husband studly? I must say he looks so hot, but I'll blog more on that later. :)


Chloe never lost her baby hair as some babies do so it has just kept growing and growing and growing. First, we did hair clips with bows. Then, we did one pony tail to the side. Now, we are at two pig tails. She is very good at letting me do them because she HATES having her hair in her eyes. It is long enough to go almost to the end of her nose. She looks like she is one of The Beatles when her hair is down.


In March, we had our friends Brad and Lauren visit us a few days before Easter, and we were able to go stuff ourselves silly while watching the Aggies play and win their first game in the tournament. For Easter weekend, we visited my parents and sister, Amy, and had a nice time with them. Matt and my dad played golf, admitting that since by the end of hole 9 they had hit the ball enough times to equal an 18 hole game, it was probably time to stop. They figured they played twice the game for half the money. :) 

Me and my sista


Chloe's and my most recent trip took us to visit our friends, the Greenes. Shanna, Michael and Jonathan hosted us for 3 days a few weekends ago. Unfortunately, Chloe's and Jonathan's napping schedules were quite opposite, but I think we made it work pretty well. Jonathan is a very flexible little man. We made a trip to the mall for some lunch on Friday and played at the indoor playground. Friday night, Shanna and I splurged and ordered 3 pieces of cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory, drove 30 minutes to go get it while dragging our little ones with us, then drove 30 minutes back home to put the kids to bed and enjoy our treat! It was delicious and so fun!

Sunday afternoon, we went to the duck pond and park. Jonathan loved watching the ducks and chasing the birds. It was like he knew what to do when he got there...

This is what Chloe did almost the entire time at the duck pond...

Don't worry, it's just ice water, but I hardly have one picture of her without this big Sonic cup in it!! Once she was done drinking, she rummaged through my purse looking for food. SO I have a ton of picturesque pictures of Jonathan by the water, looking at the ducks, etc... While all I have of Chloe involves her drinking and eating. :) It was a hot day though, I have to admit.

We finally walked over to the park where they had a separate toddler sized play area. If you need to get a picture of Chloe smiling, just put her on a slide because that's the only place you'll get one. All she wanted to do was go down the slide over and over and over...


This is what we do in the mean time when we don't have much going on... We play outside and get good and dirty. Chloe is the best at getting messy but it's funny because she doesn't like it when her hands are dirty!

I just can't put into words how cute this little girl is!!!! She seriously is SUCH a cutie pie! I wish I could watch her little personality develop!! What a dear heart! I just KNOW you're having a blast with her!
And by the way, that's one hot MAMA she has too!! You look great! Doesn't it feel good having not gained 400lbs this pregnancy?! I feel so much better having exerted a little bit of self control!
And yes, Matt does look great! Way to go! For the record, I think it was back in December that you said you were going to blog about his progress...and yet, not one word yet! Come on! We want to hear it! Or maybe he should write it then everyone can take hints from him. Maybe he should start his own Tae-Kwon-Do/ Get Fit school. He's always wanted to be a coach right?
Anyways, we love you BUNCHES!!! We miss you TONS! And can't put into words how grateful we are for your little family!
I love you Mary!

OH MY GOSH!!! She has such a georgous head of hair!!! Sailor just has a little mullet!! SERIOUSLY!! Her hair is decently long in the back, but she has no hair on the sides! I just put her hair in pigtails for the first time the other day, and let me tell you... I had to laquer it down with hairspray so they would stay! My daughter has the CrAzIeSt hair ever!! She has a humongous swirl right in the VERY FRONT of her head!! I really think that was the Lord's sence of humor (being that I'm a hairdresser and all!!) It's like He was telling me, "Let's put your skills to work on this!!" It was VERY cute when she was a baby, but now that it's getting longer, YIKES!!

Chloe, you are just a precious little girl! I wish we lived closer to you, so you and Sailor could play together!!
