Valentines and Sweet Ellie

We had a busy Valentines week as I prepared for my cousin Valerie's baby shower and Rylin's Valentine party at school.

The boys are always excited to get mail and loved their Valentine cards from Gramps and Grammie!

We made our own little treat for Dad.  A jar of kisses and our kissie faces...

Rylin and I had fun making his robot Valentines out of match books.  And by Rylin and I, I mean I worked and he critiqued!

On Friday we headed to my parents which was close to where we were hosting the shower.  The boys got more valentines goodies from Mimi & Papa and then we had a fun day on Saturday at the shower.

Clifton and Miles hung out on the floor.

Love that with a big family, my kids will have lots of cousins their age like I did!

8 Months Old

My creamy little chunk of love is eight months old today!  He is such a happy sweet little guy and quite the charmer.  He started the army crawl last week and is sooo close to taking off on his hands and knees.  He likes to sit on the floor and play though you shouldn't dare to leave the room.  He has quite the "you are abandoning me" scream!  He loves to play with anything that isn't a toy like paper, spoons, Rylin's gadgets, and cups.  He loves baths and splashes constantly making gasping noises all the while as water flies in his face!  He's eating more and more table foods and likes just about everything I give him.  He's now tried bananas, apples, avocados, spinach, green beans, sweet potatoes, carrots, rutabagas, blueberries, strawberries, and pears.  He says Mama and Dada and yells all kinds of other indistinguishable words!  Still no teeth but definitely working on the bottom two.
