picky sleeper no more

My daughter never has been one to sleep anywhere she was. Since she was a few weeks old, her bed was the only place she would close her little eyes for the evening. I think things are changing! The other night this is what we ended up with at dinner time. I've always secretly hoped she would do this as every child needs this photo in their album, don't they?

This is also a rare find. You see the pack-n-play to the right? Yeah, she wasn't having that once she woke up and saw we weren't at home. My mom took this picture the next morning...I don't sleep on my back, EVER. Can you imagine how this night was?!? Sure do love my little girl and her strange sleeping habits that seem to be poking out.

Birthday shoot

Courtney's yearly photo shoot on her birthday. We are on a roll for the 2nd year in a row. :-) The weather was bad so I set up a 'studio' on the back deck. Here are some of my favorites. 

overflowing creativity

As I mentioned before, the creativity is getting a start in this house. We are going to do crafts until we can't do crafts anymore this summer! Courtney is so excited (and I am too actually) about her 'flower'. We made this the other day and she has patiently waited for the grass/flower to grow. The other morning her and Daddy went to see her flower and she came running back to the bedroom "mommy, mommy. Courtney flower grow." She is sure she waters it every day and checks on it periodically throughout the day. We planted grass which is sure to grow and even needs to be mowed already but we also planted some flowers in there...will they grow? We shall see.

those are her hand prints...(hard to see here)

holy smokes!

Seriously, it has been way too long since I posted. Many many times I have been driving and thought 'I have the perfect post, I'll do it when I get home'...but then I get home and that doesn't happen. I have even had some clever titles, but now I sit down and the best I can come up with is "holy smokes". Lame. Oh well. For now, I will post pictures, lots of pictures. And from now on I will try to post my clever postings and my insane thoughts more often. 

Here is Courtney sporting her new tattoo
Shanna and I took the kids to the park the other day. They sure had a blast and so did we. Brady wasn't so sure about the grass at first though but LOVED the swing. 

Courtney likes to put Ethan's hair cutting cape on and..well...wear it. With rain boots. Naked. And go outside.

She is potty trained! Well, mostly. We are still working on in the car and over night. Nap time is complete and home/school/church is 99%. We are so proud of our baby girl.
Seriously, isn't my husband hot? Ethan has begun his baseball season. Here are some pictures from the first game. Courtney can't wait to get out there too!

My creative side is poking out...I sure hope it gets better but here is my start...This is our board at KDO of our kids. Hope no moms get offended. :-)
Flowers for Courtney's hair...I made them all.

K. Blogger has quit working...guess I'll add more later. Yes. There is more.
