These are a few of my favorite things...

My kids, sunshine, and sand in my toes...doesn't get much better than that! Today was a gorgeous day- so we took advantage of it and spent some time playing outside! Oh... it made me want spring/summer to get here! Both kids had a blast and so did mommy!!!

Happy 7 months!

Carter turned 7 months old on Thursday! He's getting so big! He's sitting on his own--all the time! He's even trying to get into the sitting position by himself (from laying/without someone sitting him up). He says mama, dada, baba quite well ...and loves to just babble all the time! Crawling...well, we're not quite there yet- He loves to get up on all fours and rock back and forth...then he just lunges forward and usually hits his face on the floor.. he'll get there soon! He loves to eat-he's even started feeding himself yogurt melts and puffs!
And he's definitely a Mama's Boy..which makes me very happy!

Inching Closer....

to TWO! Liliana turned 21 months old yesterday! I can't believe she'll be two in just a few short months! I love her so much! I've gotten bad about I'll try to list some things she's up to...
1. I love her faces.... she's def. has her almost "terrible two" moments when she whines and cries-- mostly because she can't figure out how to tell us how she feels...but they are still adorable.
2. She's talking up a storm. There are so many new words every day that I can't keep up with them!
3. She loves her little brother. Just today at the Pizza place she was trying to share her pizza with him, and her sippy cup! She's such a loving sister and always lets us know if "Tarter" isn't happy. However, as he gets more mobile, she things he can play and doesn't always know to play "easy" with him. She has "tackled" him a few times...we're working on it!
4. She can run, jump (LOVES to do this), has mastered stairs, and has absolutely no fear in the world when it comes to heights, jumping, climbing, etc. We're still in the crib..but I know that it will probably need to go soon...
5. Potty training...not really starting this until the summer probably, but she knows what it is and loves to sit on it...hey, that's a start right!
6. There's nothing better than your baby looking at you and saying "love you mommy"!!!!!!!!!!

Oh the weather outside....

We might have some snotty noses from it, but we sure did have a great time on the "Snow Day 2010". We had about 5 inches of snow fall! Liliana and Kevin had a great time making a large snowman ! She was so cute bringing Kevin snow to help make the snowman and helping to pack it in. Carter just wanted to sit and put his hands into the snow. I couldn't believe it snowed so much in such a little time period. I have to say...there was a little kid inside me that enjoyed playing in the snow too! A big thanks to our neighbors, Katie and David, for taking our picture (Carter was down for a nap when we finished the he didn't make the family picture).
