I saw God today...
- in my children's eyes.
- in spring emerging all around us.
- in the beauty of a sunset.
- in the laughter of my children.

Allie didn't skip a beat, she walked right into the COLD water!
Jack enjoyed taking in the sights and watching his big sister.
Allie loved walking through the mud and running in the water. She found her footprints in the mud very cool.
Our happy baby boy.
What an great afternoon at the beach, here's to many more to come!
Here are two video clips from our day.

Dinnertime is always so much fun; no matter what Allie always wants to wait for Daddy to get home to have dinner. Now that Jack is eating solid foods we all sit together at the table at the same time. Things sometimes get a little crazy.
After dinner it is bath time and Allie and Jack LOVE taking a bath together. Jack sits in the tub ring and just giggles away at Allie. Now Allie only wants to take baths with her "brutha".

-how different you both are already. Allie, you love to sleep in and take super long naps and Jack you are my early morning riser.
-how much I love you both and how much it grows as the days pass by. It doesn't seem possible, but it's true.
-how much you love each other and play so well together.
-how much I love hearing you both laugh.
-how much your (Jack's) belly laugh makes me smile.
-how wonderful of a big sister you (Allie) are.

As I'm sure is the same for everyone, life has been busy for us. Nothing special just daily life busy; we are living life with 2 children under the age of 3. Allie just amazes us everyday- she is so funny. Her newest thing is that she is a mermaid. We have finally figured out where this started from, she LOVES Little Bear and Little Bear has a mermaid that visits him. This winter Allie started taking gymnastics and she loves it.
We take it on Saturdays with my friend Melissa and her daughter Lilly. They have so much fun (and the mommies do too). As for Jack, he turned 8 months old yesterday! I find this so hard to believe; it feels like just yesterday he was an infant. He is such a good baby. He loves anything that has to do with Allie, even just seeing her makes him smile and giggle. Last time he was weighed he weighed 22 lbs. and that was well over a month ago, so you can just imagine how big he is.
I have also started a blog called Place 4 Mommies, which is my mommy soap box about things that I feel are important. I have also started one called Tell Me A Story, which is going to be a chronicle/journal of our family and a way to keep friends and family up dated, these are my mommy things (well other than scrapbooking). Matt has been busy with work and other outside projects. We are all anticipating the arrival of spring; hopefully soon. We are itching to get outside, all for our own reasons; Allies to play, Matt's to do yard clean up and I am dying to get out into my garden and get it cleaned up and ready for a new season and to play with the kids in the yard. I promise I will have more pictures to come, especially some of Jack.
Allie and Jack are my real motivation behind starting this blog. Everyday they amaze me in one way or another and I can't believe how quickly they are changing. This is also a way for me to keep family and friends updated to what is going on with our family.
The big news is that Jack turned 8 months old yesterday!
