A trip to the Park

We REALLY had to go to the park the other day. The kids were wild; and I mean wild! Must of had something to do with the full moon; they needed to run off some energy!

A ride with Daddy

Ben buys (or picks up on the side of the road) old and used lawn mowers and fixes them up at work to sell. They use the extra dollars to buy tools and things they need in the shop and yard to make the job a little easier. He brought one home the other day to show to a guy off Kijiji. He figured he better run it around the yard a few times so the girls got a ride. Katie was too scared until her two-year-old sister did it first.

We took a trip out to the Westerveld's farm back in February to see their new lambs! The girls had a blast and I realized I'm not cut out for farm life. Either that, or farm life isn't cut out for me!

April in Pictures

A bit late, but have to get it posted before May is done!

 Excuse the perpetual runny nose.
Finally warm enough for snack outside!
 Can you spot Katie?
 So hot, the sleeves better get pushed up!
 Aunt Hanna and baby Damaris came for a visit!
 Monkey see, monkey do!

 First outing to Grandma's house!
 Making waffles Saturday morning. I wonder how many of these "waffle" pictures I have of these girls.....

Isn't this how everyone watches cartoons?

Just chilling

Alex at One Month

Well that month flew by! How did my baby get to be a month old already?

  • At three weeks he was 10 lb 6 oz
  • I did a rough estimate of his length and he's grown 1.5-2 inches since birth!
  • He's wearing three-month sleepers
  • Only up once in the night after a 10pm feed It's usually around 3:30am and then he's good until 7ish
  • He fusses in the evening and LOVES to be held
  • Gives real half smiles
  • Is starting to like looking at faces more
  • Has been wearing size one diapers since he was a week old
  • Is a bit of a spitter 
  • Has the most kissable squishy cheeks!
