"Ruh you"

For the past couple weeks, Alexa has been saying "I love you" when I put her to bed. Okay, okay, it's more like "Ruh you", but either way it melts my heart :)

Where does mommy sleep?

Where does mommy sleep? Yup, I squeeze into that sliver-sized section to the right of Alexa.

Home sick = cuddle on the couch

Nolan is home sick today with a stomach bug. So that, of course, means an afternoon of cuddles on the couch. He prefers to rest on entirely laying on me. And I love it.

Cozy baby

No underwear anger!

Nolan was quite pissed that we would put underwear on him, in our attempt to encourage him to poop on the potty.
Nice little fit went down...

Nolan, the Soccer Star!

Lovely shoes, Alexa!

Biking beauty

Nolan is smitten!

This picture about sums up how Nolan feels about Sequoia. He's absolutely smitten!
My favorite quotes from Nolan (to Sequoia):
1. "I'm really heavy!" (Trying to imply that he's a big boy)
2. "Your bed is so perfect!"
3. "I'm going to miss you, my girl!" (As she left)

Yogurtland euphoria!

We went to Yogurtland to celebrate the fact that Nolan has been doing really well at peeing on the potty (no *pee* accidents in a long time....we're still working on the pooing on the toilet, though :( Might as well celebrate the small victories, too, though!
I think Nolan enjoyed his ice cream ;)

At work, I have joked about how I was going to change my last name to Smithford, to sound more prestigious. You see, all the prestigious places have similar ending sounds...Oxford, Harvard, etc.
So a co-worker had-wrote "ford" at the end of my name on my plaquard. Facilities apparently saw this and decided to "correct" the name plaque :)

Me vs. Alexa


So proud of her Lego tower

Alexa is so proud of her Lego tower!
