Ear Infection

Just in time for his birthday, little Porter has sprung his first ear infection. While common for kids like him, we've thankfully managed to keep his ears healthy for much of his first year.
Seeing him sad and sick breaks my heart, but he's handling this like a champ! Praying his ears recover quickly!

She is 3!

She is 3! She is 3! She is 3!
How can this be?
On the Sunday before her birthday, Penny got to stand up in church for the birthday song.
She was a little celebrity on the way out :)
It was an awesome start to birthday week!
Thanks Nana & Papa for sharing in the fun and helping us around the house!

Big Boy!

He will sit on the bench and play for a half hour...methodically watching and pushing buttons whenever the sound/lights take a break. It's fascinating to see him in action- there is purposeful, thoughtful action taking place. It makes him just as happy as it makes me!

Goodnight 2

Tonight I sang our two year old to sleep for the last time...when she wakes up in the morning, she'll be three. This weekend she reminded me numerous times that she can do it herself, that she's a big girl and that she has her own opinions on everything. But a she fell asleep, she reminded me that she'll always be my baby. I love you big girl!

Go Nova!

Almost 3

Our big girl is almost 3. Her 3 year doctor visit was quite a wake up call- it was all big girl and no baby. She had her blood pressure checked, stood on the big kid scale and was so proud to be measured standing against the wall- she ran back to the height chart many times to show me just how big she is!
We followed up our doctor visit with some shopping, a ride on the carousel and lunch at Panera. What an amazing morning with our not-so-little girl!

Let''s Dress Up and Dance

Creativity and imagination abound in our house...someone has decided that it's cool to dress up!
 So, we dress up and dance. Easter hat, check. Yellow pantaloons, check. Fluffy tutu, check.
 500th replay of Call Me Maybe, check.
It never gets old :) Keep dancing little one, keep dancing!

Me and My Shadow

Someone discovered his own shadow this weekend while playing at Nana & Papa's house.
Oh how he wanted to catch that boy in the shadow!
 He talked to his shadow, waved at his shadow and did hooray for his shadow :) 
 Most importantly, he giggled at his shadow and had us all giggling along :)
