Baby, It's Cold Outside!

Reagan and I decided to take advantage
of some sunny weather and melting snow
with a trip to the park on Sunday.
But, looks were deceiving because it
was COLDY! Had to warm up with
some hot chocolate (mommy's idea of course).
Pinky's Out...
Checking the fluid level.

Couch Time

What's this? They are both looking at
the same time? This is unheard of...
I think he is getting used to all the kisses...
he usually looks more annoyed.
Sweet Feet. Old man pants...
I tend to pull 'em up a little high
but he doesn't seem to mind.

Bumbo Fun

We have this foam seat known as the "Bumbo"
that is on loan from Abby...meant to
provide core support for babies
before they can sit up on their own.
But Reagan has a different idea and
uses it regularly. Bracken is finally big enough
and seems to enjoy the new view.
I believe their should be a height
or age requirement imprinted on the seat
...don't ask me how she
got her legs in there!
Reagan thinks this is hilarious

Ballerina School

The last two Saturday mornings Reagan and
I head off to "ballerina school" through
our local park district. It is designed
specifically for 2 year olds which is good
because at any given moment someone
could be having a meltdown or taking
frequent trips to the potty. Oh yeah, and
it is only 30 minutes long...about the attention
span of this age group. Any 3 year old in their
right mind would simply be bored with it!

Daddy's Lil' Helper

Reagan has become quite the helper in
the kitchen as you can imagine...
She is in charge of the utensil drawer.
This is her Julia Child pose.
This is her Emeril Lagasse pose..
This is her Reagan Bull pose.


A genuine smile - finally!
Morning Smiles

Busy Weekend

Last weekend was a busy one!
Uncle Brad was kind enough to return and
help us out with our basement renovations.
...future TV room...
Hard at work...
GG spends some quality time on the couch!
GG and PaPa Bull came to visit!
...and we ended the weekend with
Grammie Carla!

Precious Moments...

Ever wonder why my two kids are
rarely seen in photos TOGETHER?
Well, here is your answer...
Mommy: "Reagan, come over here
and look cute next to your brother..."
This was so unexpected I was fidgeting with
the camera and almost missed it!
Now she is influencing him too...
Soooo with Reagan these days if
you ask her to smile for the camera
you get this face...
...or this one...
(the cheesiest smile she can come up with)

I have an Addiction.

Okay, I'll admit it.
I am addicted to taking photos of my children...
and my new camera has become an enabler.
It takes good photos.
I am excited about this... I need another hit.
Testing out the "snow" setting...
Testing out the "messy eater" setting...
I call this one "Strawberries in the morning"Testing out the "chubby cheeks" setting...

Glue Sticks and Smiles

The weather outside is frightful so we decided
to stay in and make paper snowmen instead!
Hard at work with a bit of breakfast
on her shirt and bed head
...such harsh working conditions!
All smiley and bundled up!
...melts your heart, doesn't he? :)
