A typical day at our house...

Axel had his first cereal this week...

He ate like a champ! I couldn't believe how great he did, and how MUCH he ate.

I think we'll have a good eater this time around.

1-2-3 Imagine with Elmo and friends.

We bought tickets last minute to take Kenron to see Elmo, and Bee Bird, and Abby, and Cookie, and Burp and Eyr-ner (Burt and Earnie) etc...

He had no idea what was coming...

He just stared mezmorized - Mat at I were cracking up everytime we looked at him. He was really good and stayed in our laps the whole time.

At the end he perked up and was pointing out the characters, and then waving goodbye to everyone - So cute!
We had a great time and we're excited to take Axel someday!

Kenron's favorite..

I bought this toy over 6 months ago, and I would wager that Kenron has played with it at least once every day. I'm secretly proud of myself because it was one of those toys that I bought thinking, "you know I bet he would really love this" and I was RIGHT! My motherly instinct did not fail me that day...
With this toy he has learned: Open and Close, Up and Down, counting...
This is the reason he called ya-ya "Shut the Door" for a little while, because they played the counting cars game A LOT!

AND he can even predict the trailer for Die Hard 5...

Aren't you excited to see what else he learns now?

Axel can sit up!

He can only sit for a little bit, but he is getting so strong!
This kid is the best.

Look what I scored at the Goodwill...

I got this beauty for Ten whole dollars! The previous owner had adorned the burners with happy faces and colored on the knobs but with a little elbow grease it was as good as new. It was also missing the "sink" but one of the bowls from my cabinets was a perfect fit.

And this was screaming to find a place in our house. I cant wait to figure out where.

These were some fun finds...

We spent the rest of the day in the kitchen playing. I was completely living vicariously through Kenron. I always wanted a kitchen when I was younger and now I get to enjoy it with my kiddos.

Next time your over you'll have to try some of his baked chocolate milk and tomatos, they are to die for.

Look what Santa brought...

To those of you who gave Kenron and Axel money for christmas, this is what Santa brought them for you:

Axel and I went outside to check out what the guys were doing.

We found a super stong kid, pulling his own weight, lifting the slide...

And a daddy who wanted to make sure everything was in the right place...

and as he attached the slide, things got a little hairy and..

Kenron fell backwards off the slide. There were only a couple tears.

Then he was happy again.

Thanks for the slide everyone! We hope to enjoy this all spring and summer long!

Axel is 5 months old??!?!

I literally choked on those words last night after we took the picture.

I said "Axel you're 5, 5? 5! 5 months old?" yikes. Mat looked at me like I had been living under a rock. I think he was half afraid I was going to have a melt down or say ok I'm ready for another one!!
I recovered quickly.

Axel seems to be checking off his milestones list quickly this month.
He can now:
Push up from the floor and lift his head high
roll over from back to tummy (right side only)
AND roll back over to back (right side only)

He's been sleeping 11 hours at night still and has started taking a longer nap while Kenron takes his nap which illicits frequent thoughts of Mel Gibson yelling "FREEDOM" and the chorus from this song:

I got to sit down for 1.5 hours uninterupted for the first time in 5 months on friday. I spent it catching up on my soap -

its a glamorous life I lead.
