Wild Girl!

April 13, 2013

Claire is definitely the more adventurous of our children… She was showing off at the park recently.

Chris and I were standing out to the side talking while Colton and Claire played… We looked up and saw her sliding on her belly!

Here I go!!

Love this wild girl!

I think it is time to give this hat to her cousin Keylee and get her one that fits!

Sleeping Beauty

I am not sure why I do this, but I almost always take pictures of the kiddos when they fall asleep in the vehicle.

Silly Chick

I really cannot figure this chick out… She is such a firecracker.  For some reason she loves to put stuff on her face!  Whether it’s lotion, Vaseline, Desitin, or even stickers.

Cheese!!

Muah!  Love her so much!

Weight:

14 pounds & 12 ounces

Height:

25 1/2 inches long and still in the 90th percentile!

Clothing:

You are wearing 6-9 months clothing.

Feeding & Sleeping:

During the day you are doing awesome.  We are currently transitioning to a 3.5 hr schedule.  Since the time change we are having issues with nighttime, but I am hoping that will adjust soon!

Other stuff:

We have been a lot more tummy time and on March 5th you rolled over for the first time!  We were all in Colton’s room after bath time … I had turned around and Colton said, “mom Beckham rolled over”.  I was totally shocked and a little disappointed that I missed it.  Colton was super excited that he got to see it.

Little Love

I did not realize how much I missed seeing my husband snuggled up with a baby.  Seeing him take care of and love on Baby B is just different than seeing him with the toddlers.  There is something over the top sweet about it… makes me fall in love with him over and over.  I love these boys… I love all my boys.

Big Helper

April 6, 2013

Colton is such a big helper around the house.  He is really great about helping to put away his laundry and he helps pick up the playroom.  His favorite though always involves a spray bottle!

So I gave him the windex and something to clean the windows with and he got busy!

Those extra set of hands are going to be great as he gets bigger!!

{Toddler Lesson #1}–My Punishment

April 1, 2013

Dinnertime can sometimes be the most enjoyable time of our day.  Sitting around the table as a family is important to both Chris and I – even if we are having take-out.  It is a good time to sit together as a family and talk about our day.  We all take turns sharing what went on that day.  Chris will share a little about his work day and then we make our way around the table and ultimately end up trying to pull stuff out of Colton about what went on at school.

Colton likes to tell us about reading circle (his favorite part of the day) and will talk about playtime.  I try to get him to share about his bible story for the day, but I normally do not get much of a response.  Last Thursday while eating dinner Colton was telling us about what had went on earlier that day at school.  They had a little Easter party and during playtime they watched a movie about Easter.  We of course took this time to talk about Easter and Jesus dying on the cross only to raise from the grave three days later.  In the midst of our conversation Colton interrupts and says, “He took the punishment for our sin”.  Chris and I could barely finish our bites of food.  Chris got that deep down gut happy belly laugh.  You know, the one where you do not know whether to cry or laugh with joy.  Of course I welled up with tears.  Chris confirmed to Colton that what he said was true.  I finished the rest of dinner with such a thankful heart that my little man is learning about our Lord.  Hearing my little four year old come out with “He took the punishment for our sin” was almost more than I could stand.

Good Friday is a day of remembrance of the crucifixion of Christ – the entire day I thought about what Colton said.  So thankful that my little toddler helped remind me that Jesus did not just die on the cross, but he was crucified for my sin… He took the punishment for my sin.  Glory to His name!

{Giveaway} Ally zabba Blankets

There is something so sweet about a child and their comfort item.  I find it especially sweet when it is a blanket or lovie of some sort.  When thinking about a lovie for Beckham I knew he needed something durable.  Claire’s blanket of choice has not held up over the past two and half years and we are paying dearly for it now – I am currently looking for an exact match!

While thinking about blankies I remembered reading years ago about Ally Zabba.  These blankets are so unbelievably soft and come packaged so cute!  Beckham took to his blanket right away!
DSC_0377DSC_0337

AllyZabba has a large selection of cute prints and cuddly fabric that your little one – or even big one – is sure to enjoy.  These blankets also make great gifts!  I cannot wait to get one for my new nephew when he arrives.  The blankets are available in several different sizes.  Right now she is having a spring sale where you can get 10% OFF your blankets!

One thing I love most about AllyZabba is it is a “mom business”.  The business owner Jill started her business in her home after leaving her career as a teacher to be a fulltime stay at home mom.  Jill started by sewing custom blankets for friends and soon her hobby bloomed into a growing business.  Jill at Ally Zabba has been gracious enough to give away a TravelZabba to one of you! That’s right – any TravelZabba in any style!  I’m kind of partial to the dino’s!
