5th Year Wedding Anniversary

Jeff and I celebrated our 5th year anniversary yesterday. Jeff got me 5 roses and took me out to a nice dinner on the beach in Ft. Lauderdale. It was really really good. It was really fun to get dressed up. It got really dark fast because we hit some traffic so I didn't get a lot of good pictures. I also forgot to get one of Jeff and me which made me sad because I had a new dress on. Oh well...better luck next year. Thank you everyone for all the well wishes.

I feel like the Paparazzi. My poor kids have been seeing the camera and video camera a lot lately. I really just can't help it. I want to catch every moment and be able to look at it again when they are bigger. I also get sad that we aren't near family so they can't see the kids. I hope you are enjoying the videos.

Chatting in the Bumbo Chair

I just can't help myself. I know this is a very similar video as the other one but this little boy just makes me smile. He is always talking and laughing and cooing and making all sorts of cute sounds.

Smartie Pants

Austin is too smart for his own good. We love to read together every night before bed and he already has a lot of the books memorized. His favorite book right now is a book with different kinds of trucks in it. He can name almost every truck in the book. Check out this video to see.

Austin naming different vehicles

Maybe it isn't as awesome as I think because he is my son but I think it's great!

My Sweetie Pie

Bennett is a joy. He is always smiling. He used to hate to have his diaper changed but now he loves it and he looks up at me and smiles and laughs the whole time. It makes me laugh and then he laughs more and then Austin laughs. It is so cute. He seems to like his bumbo chair. I started him off sitting in it for only a few minutes at a time. Now he will sit in it for about 20 minutes very happily.

Of course as soon as I get the camera out he is so mesmerized he stops smiling and just stares at me.

Out with the Old in with the New

We got our first piece of real furniture! It is a table that seats 6. It has a leaf that can come out and plenty of room. I am so excited to have people over for dinner. We invite people over about once a week and it was so awkward to put the food on the counter and then hardly be able to fit four plates on the table at the same time. I need to make a new table runner. I think mind might be a little to informal for my new table. To me the table looks fancy but to the people at the furniture store this table is considered informal. You should have seen all the ornate tables and chairs. I love my table. I can't wait to play dominoes and cards with my family when they come. We've loved our little kitchen table that Patty gave us and I will be keeping it and using as a craft table.

Bennett Talking

Bennett loves to make lots of little coos and gurgles. It is really cute. He loves it when I talk to him. When I took him to the doctor for his 8 week check up he was 10 pounds 11 ounces and 24 inches long. He is really long!

Enjoy the video.
