Whipped Cream...wow!

Last night, we had the family over for a BBQ. For dessert, J&J brought strawberry pound cake, which we covered in whipped cream (of course!)
I was sharing mine with Alexa, and she immediately started devouring mostly the whipped cream portion.  After she'd get through a nice portion, she was say "moy, moy" (more).  Then as I poured more on, she was exclaim, "Wow!"

This happened over and over.  She had the whole family cracking up!

Messy eater!

Pink cowboy boots

Clearly, pink cowboy boots go with EVERYTHING. Or, at least, Alexa insists they do.

BBQ fun with the cousins!

Memorial Day BBQ with the Jodoins! Nolan always have a blast with their cousins!

Nolan's first pick-up line

Today, my friend Kris and her boyfriend (Chris, haha) came over with Chris' 5yo daughter.
Nolan was immediately smitten with her!
He followed her around everywhere. Then, while eating their dinner, he said to her, "I'm really heavy!"
(He thinks that's really impressive since we are always telling him how big and heavy he's getting)

Yup, folks, Nolan's first pick up line!

Nolan's awesome train

Nolan made quite an impressive train!
He was quite proud of himself.

Potty training, round 2

So it's been about 5 weeks since we started the SECOND round of potty training (the first round about 6 months ago was a failure, so we took a break and started over months later).

He now usually uses the toilet for peeing (very few pee accidents), but still scared to poo in the toilet. 

Hey, at least we've made some progress!!


Cute pic the cousins all together, mesmerized by a movie :)

All cuddled up

Alexa is all cuddled up with her bear, kitty, bottle...and sunscreen? Yeaaa, she wouldn't let go of that bottle, so we had to pry it out of her hands once she fell asleep.

She is as happy as a bug in a rug. And couldn't be cuter!!!

Even a diva at bedtime

Alexa had a second pair of pajamas draped around her shoulders and a gold pair of sunglasses on...for bedtime. Yup, she picked it all out herslef! Even a diva at bedtime.

"I'm drawing Angry birds Star Wars!"

Uhhhh, children...

Alexa and Nolan kissing. We're going to have to have a little talk with them.

Alexa hearts cats

Alexa just adores animals, especially cats and dogs. She seeks out all the animals around the neighborhood.

Wrestling with daddy

Alexa wrestling with daddy. She is clearly winning!

The biking maniac

Nolan is a biking maniac now! He has gotten so fast that we actually have to follow him on a bike now, versus just running after him.

Dressy bike riding

Road warriors!

Swinging high five

Drinking from a big girl cup

Alexa really wanted to drink from a regular cup after seeing Nolan do it. Surprisingly, she did REALLY well!
