What's new with us...

We are officially in the school swing if things. Hudson is attending the YMCA five days a week from 8 AM -2:30 PM. He is in the Georgia state Pre-K program. It is, essentially, what Kindergarten was when I was little. We miss him so much while he is at school, but it gives Kendan and I some good one on one time.

I am still working out 5-6 days a week. I love it/hate it every minute I am there. About a month and a half ago I added running to my routine. I take a class and run every morning and I run again every evening with my neighbors. And Joshua & I registered for the warrior dash next spring. I am so excited about it!

We had dinner at the fire department with Joshua last week. These are probably the first pictures we have of Kendan with the fire engine. Crazy! :)

I have also been enjoying our garden. I recently made some homemade salsa using tomatoes and jalapenos from our garden. Kendan was practically drinking it. It was so yummy! I have made candied jalapenos and made pickles with some cucumbers given to me by a sweet friend. I love the rewards of our labor!

Bath Time-Fun Time

We decided to make bath time a little exciting! Shaving cream paint and my boys were in heaven! They have asked for this every night since. I gotta get more shaving cream! :) I filled a muffin tin with shaving cream, added food coloring to each dollop of shaving cream and stirred to mix. The kids got paint brushes and painted rainbows, hand prints, and each other! This was a fun activity for them!

Kendan-Mommy Time

We spent the morning together playing at the park after we took Hudson to school. The weather was cool and this playground has a sun shade. It was fun time with my little guy. I love him more everyday!

18 Months Old

Today Kendan is 18 months old. He is so full of life and spunk! He loves anything exhilarating like twirling, throwing himself back when you hold him, and doing flips off your lap. He isn't a big eater, especially of vegetables, but he loves his milk! He adores his big brother and imitates him often. His favorite (and I mean favorite) thing to play with is an old plastic vacuum attachment. He pushes it around the house, and yells, "mine!" if you try to take it. He knows where his eyes, ears, nose, mouth, hair, hands, feet, and belly are. He can say mommy, da-da, shoes, swing, cracker, hello, bye bye, night night, uh-oh, no, mine, and ma'am. He is so sweet, but can throw a tantrum with the best of them! I have figured out though that his empathy will come out mid tantrum if I pretend to cry. He will immediately stop his fit and gently stroke my cheek. :) He loves books and his bed. He likes to be laid down with his blankie, which he calls, "nigh - nigh." He is a precious blessing to our family as we prayed for him for a year and a half before finding out he was on the way! He is all boy, all love, all fun, and we couldn't imagine our life without him!

Last Day of Summer

We celebrated with a trip to Chuck E Cheese. We took Madalyn & Savannah with us. It was a fun last day of summer. But please don't remind me my baby is starting Pre-K! *tear*
