Toy Story 3

Now that it's summer and so friggen hot, we are trying to find fun things to do with the kids that is indoors. Yesterday was Matutu's Island and today was a family trip to go see Toy Story 3. This was Presley's 3rd movie in the theatre and she always does so great. It was a super cute movie and BOTH kids were great.

Jaggar slept for the first 45 minutes and then sat with me and kept himself busy and quiet and Presley stayed in her chair the whole time and ate popcorn. It was very relaxing.

Here are a few pictures of our fun day!

Makutu's Island

Today we were invited to Makutu's Island by our friends Jaime and Hannah! It was a blast. It took the girls a little time to warm up to the place, but it was a fun time. Presley is still a little small for some of the areas but next year she will be perfect for the place. Her favorite part was the fish tank. Hence the reason all the pictures were taken by it =)

Jaggar really did enjoy the place. He was VERY entertained by all the kids an commotion.

And he's OUT!!...
After a long fun day!...

Just needed Mommy...

Yesterday as we were sitting in church the dreaded red number came up on the front screen...3803. I quickly left the service to go to the nursery and there he was. Red eyes, taking deep breaths like he'd been crying..it was so sad. As soon as I took him, it all stopped. The reason I post this is so that I can look back and remember this DID happen at one time. I know it's not going to last long. Presley's only going on 3 and she no longer even looks back at us when we drop her off at Sunday School. I thank God that she loves it so much, but I also kinda want her to still want me to be with her.

So, here was Jaggar after I went and got him...What a stinker!

You were faking it Jaggar....(but its ok)

NO BITING!

I just can't believe it! My little Jaggar has a tooth! As the milestones hit with him, it gets harder and harder as a mom to realize my baby is growing up. When Presley was a baby, I wanted her to do things so quickly, so when they happened, I felt like I was waiting forever for them! (Although I truly did wait forever for Pres to walk...it was not until 15 months. Um, I think we chalk this up to L A Z Y)

With Jaggar, it's a completely different story. We are not sure if we are done having kids or not, but we are swaying more towards "being done", then the other. We love the way things are right now. It's easy (on most days) and it's just nice having one parent for each kid. Anyways...

So he has a tooth. I have been feeling his gums everyday for I can't tell you how long! He has been drooling so much for so long that I feel like he should have a full mouth full at this point.

We did have one VERY hard week at night with no sleep, but other then that, I have to say, he's been a breeze during the break through of this first tooth! (I am sure that I am jinxing myself right now too...)

Anyways...there were many attempts to try to get a picture of his little tooth but no luck. It's really too small to see right now. I will post one when he's cooperating!

Swim Day

Today we had a fun time hanging out with our friends and swimming! Presley is getting so good at swimming all by herself (with floaties)! We are so proud of her. This will be a very fun summer in the pool!

Here are a few pics of her and one of her besties....
Just doing a little relaxing on the steps....
Look at those big bellies....
So glad Mark and Shannon have a pool that we can go in for the summer! Thanks guys!!

I am blessed

I feel as though I am extremely blessed to have the kids that I do. Presley and Jaggar love each other so much and you can see that even with Jaggar only being 6 months old. It's so fun to watch them.

Throughout the day, when Jaggar is playing with his toys and I am busy getting things done around the house, I hear and see Presley going over to Jaggar and making the most ANNOYING noises. Now, normally I would say.."Presley, stop being so loud, please"..or something along those lines, BUT, when I hear Jaggar laughing at the top of his lungs, I refrain. I LOOOVE to hear the sounds of my kids laughing.

Here is just one example of how Presley makes Jaggar laugh. And I love it.

Our CA Trip

Back in January, we got our tickets to fly to CA to see the Stillmans' there. We were very excited and then had a few months to wait. It was a blast and the kids had so much fun. Presley had the other girls to play with (which this trip they were older so they had a lot of fun playing and interacting) and Jaggar had a friend too!! His cousin Wyatt Cole is only 4 days younger then him so it was fun to see the similarities and differences between the two. (He also had his cousin Lily but since she was only a week and a half old, she pretty much slept ;) )

The flight there and back were both perfect. On the way there we did have a stop, but we got to stay on the plane, so it just gave Pres and chance to walk around a little and get out of her seat. Jaggar pretty much slept the whole trip both ways so that ideal.

We love going to see the CA Stills. It's comfortable and relaxing all in the same. We felt at home.

While there, Jaggar ended up getting his very first ear infection. Not only an ear infection, but a DOUBLE ear infection. SOOO not fun. He was quite fussy. We were able to take him to an Urgent Care there in Oakland and got meds in him right away and before we knew it, he was smilie again. Thank GOD!

Then, after he started to get better, I got a cold, Preston got a cold and then Presley got a cold. Man! We just couldn't win. SO, although we didn't get to go out and do some of the things we originally wanted to, it was fun anyways.

Easter

So I am what you call WAY BEHIND with my blogging. So, here are a few posts to catch you all up on whats been going on lately. Easter was SO fun. It's so fun having 2 kids now. The night before Easter, we did rice krispy eggs. I melted chocolate and had different sprinkles and she got to make the biggest mess and get a sugar high.

Presley is to the age where she is appreciating her gifts and she knows what she wants and we know what to get her. So...in the morning we started with her Easter basket.

(Jaggar...you are too little to even care, so you just got a toy. Sorry.)

Then, we went to church and ended the day at my parents house to hang out and relax.

Mommy and Pres as we start...

Here was the end product...
