Catch Up: March

Michael raced so we took Henry to the drag races (again...I believe this is his second time)

Proud Papa

Indoctrinating him young.

They got matching shirts from the races.  Olivia was so excited to be "twinners" with her brother.

Henry turned six months old....

...and promptly started teething.  It was miserable.  I am pleased to report that his second and third tooth have been less miserable than that first one.

Michael and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary by taking a trip sans children to Las Vegas.  It was heaven!  We had so much fun that we booked another trip back to Vegas for May.

Taken by grandma while we were gone.  I think he was devastated we were gone, don't you?

Henry has been working on his car while daddy works on his ;)

His first time riding in a big boy cart at Target.  He has since been to Costco like this as well.

I got dressed! Woohoo!  I took Henry to Good Friday service at our church.

Got dressed up and took Henry to Good Friday service at our church while Michael was working.

Our church has a baby room (which is AMAZING).  Henry and I rocked in a rocking chair the whole service.  He slept and I enjoyed the service immensely.  I wish they had church service every Friday night.

Henry has decided he now wants to sleep on his tummy.  Not something Mama loved at first (since he likes to sleep with his face smashed into the mattress).  We bought one of those mattresses they can breath through and since then we have all been able to sleep peacefully.

His Easter outfit (insert heart eye emoji)

He loves his sister so much.  He woke up from a nap and the first thing he saw was her and look at the look on his face!! Pure love.

 Olivia has been trying to get her cousin to sleep over for years and she won't do it.  We finally succeeded in getting a cousin sleepover at our house.  It was a total success and they had so much fun she didn't want to leave and asked when she could come back for another one.

Root beer floats

We helped them build a fort over Olivia's bed so they got to sleep in a fort all night.

Catch Up: February

Henry started sitting in his high chair

 We went camping near Solvang.

Olivia and her cousin Audrey

Henry went swimming for the first time.  He cried at first because the water was cold, but he ended up loving it and falling asleep in his floatie thingy.

He is a little too small for it, but this Go-Pod is awesome.  It folds up small  You can hook toys into it or set food on it.

Michael and I left the kids with the grandmas and escaped for a bike ride date.  It was lovely.

Henry started rolling over in his bed.

We also managed a Valentine's date.  We got engaged on Valentine's Day last year so I am a bit more partial to the day than usual.

Olivia started playing soccer for the first time. I'm a soccer mom!

Henry isnt shy about his love of food.

Henry and his Grandpa Greg

Every year my best friend and her sister put a race on to raise money for pancreatic cancer in honor of their mom who passed.  All of our high school friends volunteer every year.  This year Henry came too.

This is my friend who plans the event.  This year she was 8 months pregnant.  Last year I was pregnant at the race :)

The 4 of us went to prom together.  Crazy how old we have gotten!

My high school buddies 

Trying to steal his sister's snack

Those leg rolls!

Touching grass for the first time.  He is a big fan.

After 15 years with the same car (and just under 200,000 miles!!), I got a new car, which is now our family car.  We LOVE it!
