My Mini Messy Marvin

We have a new Messy Marvin on our hands. Emmitt has recently begun eating regular food by himself, and he loves it. He loves it so much that he makes it very difficult when I try to spoon feed him anything. So one day I just decided to plop a spoonful of oatmeal and cottage cheese on his tray. The following pictures are from that day.

Christmas was really excited about Emmitt's mess. So excited that he decided to...

help me clean up. He's our organic vacuum cleaner and garbage disposal. Who needs a compost pile when you have a dog.

Nana and Papaw Time

Evie and Emmitt love spending time with Nana and Papaw. Here are a few pictures from Easter and Mother's Day.

I love this picture of my mom and Evie.

For Easter Nana, Papaw, and I took the kiddos to the Orr Family Farm. Everyone had such a great time.

Notice the gigantic bite of carrot cake. Emmitt definitely loves eating.

For Mother's Day, we went to the Cheesecake Factory. Of course the food was great, but the company was even better.

Outside Fun

The other day it was so nice and warm. So, Evie and I decided to pull out the sprinkler and the wading pool. She had so much fun.

Working hard on her Dora car.

I love the blue sky in the background.

Brother and Sisterly Love

Evie and Emmitt are really starting to enjoy each other's company. Here are a few pictures of the two.

Evie can always make her little brother laugh.

Evie trying to show Emmitt her book. Typically Evie does not run around the house in only a diaper, but this day she was trying out her new big girl panties.

Daddy orchestrated this picture. From an early age, he's tried to instill in them a love for God, each other, and the Dallas Cowboys.

Car Conversations

If you were a fly in my car today, you would have overheard the following conversation.

Evie - "Mommy, I need a drink of apple juice."

Mommy - "Sorry, sweetie. Mommy forgot your apple juice at the house. We can get some water at the restaurant."

Evie - "That's okay, Mommy. We can stop at Sonic and get an apple juice. That would be easy."

Sometimes I think there's a way older person in her little body. And yes, my daughter knows all about Sonic. She can even point them out to you. That's my girl!

Funny Faces

Evie is always the queen of funny faces. So, I thought that I'd share a few.

Isn't this a nice face for Easter Sunday?

I think she tasted something gross here.

Mother's Day at the Cheesecake factory.

Even Biggie is beginning to make funny faces. Of course, it helped that his mouth was stuffed full of carrot cake.

Blog Addiction

If you read my blog that often, you know I'm definitely not addicted to posting. My addiction comes in the form of reading. I love to read the blogs of my friends; keeping up with the comings and goings of their families. There are a few blogs, though, that I love to read and they're written by complete strangers. So if you're looking for a few good blogs written by someone you've never met, check these out.

Kelly's Korner - She has an incredible story surrounding her daughter's birth. So if you need to be reminded that miracles do happen, click over for a peek. Also, how could you not enjoy reading the blog of a fellow Sonic drink lover? Except I prefer a diet cherry vanilla Dr. Pepper to her diet vanilla Coke.

Bring the Rain - Make sure you have Kleenex available when you check this blog out. It's a great reminder that sometimes miracles don't necessarily happen the way we think they should. And even in our most difficult times, God has a plan and is doing incredible things in and through us.

My Charming Kids - This is my all time favorite right now. Keep some Kleenex handy for this one too. On occasions it's a tear jerker. MckMama has an incredible story surrounding the birth of her youngest, Stellan. Her little guy still needs our prayers, though. I definitely recommend checking this one out.
