I'm going to try and keep this short...seems how I have TONS of pictures.
Monkey decided he was big enough to take the suitcase through the airport. He is so helpful!
Daddy got the big suitcase AND Rosebud.
The airline gave #1 a special pass so he and the kids could go to the gate with us. Rosebud liked looking for airplanes. Monkey didn't really get that he wasn't going with me till I was boarding. Then he cried :o(
First flight! Sweet Pea posed with a sweet pilot as we boarded. He announced her over the intercom right before take off.
Sweet Pea meeting Aunt Danielle!
Look at me! I am an AUNT!!!!! This is baby Ivy :o)
Ivy is absolutely beautiful. Look at those lashes!
Danielle gave us a tour of ECHO last year, so this year it was more a quick visit and she got to show off Ivy to several people who hadn't seen her yet.
Grandmommy had a couple of matching outfits for the girls which was fun!
Very proud uncle/daddy :o)
The girls were mildy interested in each other. They're still pretty young for socializing.
We spent a day at the beach. Sweet Pea went sunbathing. Fully dressed...under an umbrella.
She LOVED the ocean, and I hope she enjoys the pool as much this summer.
She is trying to suck her thumb, and has gotten it a few times now.
They are six weeks, one day apart in age. I wish I had a dollar for each time that people asked if they were twins. They don't look alike, but being so close in age/size I think people naturally assumed they were.
We also got to see some really cool wildlife one day when we went for a hike.
Babywearing is so much fun! Maybe we could be a Moby commercial.
Alligator track. Easily bigger than my hand. Glad we didn't see that one!
This gator was big enough, thanks!
My brother hard at work at his job. He works for a Christian radio station that we are able to listen to online.
On the way home we never had any seatmates. Sweet Pea traveled really well.
On our final flight they even asked if we'd like to keep the carseat. Yes please! She slept the entire flight.
It was so nice to go meet Ivy and to see family. Can't wait to see them in August!
Snug loves life. At eight years old, he is a big brother four times over, a role he takes very seriously. He loves to read, swim, run, play Legos, and hear stories. He is sensitive to the needs of others and has a very kind heart.
Little Monkey Man
Watch out world! This middle child is not about to be left out of anything! Formally known on this blog as "Baby J" he is a baby no longer. His sense of adventure is downright dangerous and he will push your buttons all day long. This six year old is very generous and has a sweet smile that will light up a room. Don't let him use his "eyes" on you or you may fall under his spell!
Four years old and quite the little lady. Not sure what we'll do with all of her emotions, but loving watching her grow. She loves ballet, preschool, and church and all of her friends-both real and stuffed variety.
She's three! Hard to believe how fast time goes by. She's my girl and she's demands lots of my love. Growing, changing, and making us all laugh (and scream...not gonna lie), this little one is so precious.
Oh this baby. Easiest one, cheeriest one. Laid back, happy, sweet.
