I had some left over ring pops from her birthday and decided to let her have one.

I love her eyes, we so rarely get a direct picture of them, they are just beautiful.

I think that she enjoyed it. Love the gap in the teeth, we're already saving for orthodontia!


Here are some recent pics of the handsome boy. He just had his two month checkup on Monday weighing 13 lbs 1 ounce putting him in the 73rd percentile and is 24 inches long 77 percentile and his head is 16.3 inches around also in the 77 percentile. When the doctor came in he said that he looks like he is about 4 months old.

I LOVE the cheeks!

A gift from Grandma Pate, he loves having things on his head, he presses right up against the top of the crib when he sleeps.

Even tough guys need a binkie every now and then.

Before & After

So i have finally cracked down and learned Lightroom. I am really liking it. It is Picasa on steriods. Here is an example i did of about six pictures i took of Tucsons desert. The top was a bit overexposed. However, the end result turned out quite nice. As a shameless plug i recommend this program. Before

Audrey turns 3!

For Audrey's birthday she wanted a pink party. I took it a step farther and did princesses. We had Pink Lemonade, strawberries, apples and chocolate cake. Along with 8 2 and 3 year olds, quite the fun time for her.

One of our activities was making candy necklaces. This is one of our neighbor girls, she definately got the most on hers!

The princess cake, we went the easy way and just bought one this year.

I love all the help that she had opening the gifts. She certainly made out like a bandit.

She had a great day and we went and saw the Cougars win afterwards. I can't believe she is 3 year old!

Random September picks

Having fun at the park, while we can still go outside.
Our after the park activity, too bad it was at 6:00 at night! Luckily her grandparents were here and they got to stay up with her instead of mom and dad.

Calvin Updates

So, I know I have been completely remiss in my posts, but here are a couple of pics of the Little Man from the last month.
Steven gave Calvin a blessing early in the month. After this picture, Calvin promptly pooped all down the inside of his pants. Luckily I didn't decide to put him in white, Steven washed the pants out really quickly and blew them dry with my hair drier, put them back on and we were off to church.

He loves "sitting" and can be found in this position every day.

He is a happy little boy who brings such joy to us all. He is also a very big boy. He was weighed at my 6 week check up last week and came in at a whopping 12 lbs 14 ounces!
