Happy Father's Day

We had a wonderful, low key Father Day today.  I love to see how much our kiddos love their daddy.  Their eyes just light up when they are playing with him.  Even Isabel is starting to reach more and more for daddy, though she is still a mommy's girl for the most part. :-) 
The kids enjoyed giving daddy his gifts.  Each of the kids made him a new tie.  The boys really wanted to wear the ties themselves.  We also put together a picture collage.  I had given Mike a picture collage 4 years ago with pictures of him and Eli and I thought it was a good time to for a new one.
My dad also stopped by for just a bit and we were able to give him his gift.  The kids loved seeing Papaw, Uncle Austin and Aunt Jackie. :-)

Pancake Fun!

 The boys enjoyed a fun breakfast this morning!  For a little while we have had a dinosaur sandwich cutter that we have used on sandwiches, toast, and our favorite; pancakes!  I have been searching for some different sandwich cutters but I have never been able to find them.  This weekend my mom surprised us and brought us 2 more!  So of course animal pancakes were requested at breakfast this morning!

Jude was excited for his breakfast too!

Happy 11 Months Baby Girl!

 In just 1 short month my baby girl will be celebrating her first birthday.  How is that even possible?  She was just born.  I am not ready for her to turn one yet. :-(  She is such a fun little girl and I could not love her any more than I already do.  She has brought some extra spunk to our family!

Isabel is a ball of energy.  She goes non stop ALL THE TIME!  She is such a little mover and climber.  She climbs all over the chairs that she loves and she tries to dive head first off of them.  She also has a new favorite place to climb, in our book crates of course.  We use our crates to block off some of the toys that are too little for her and I am sure it won't be long until she can climb right back there.  She is just keeping me on my toes, never a dull moment with her.

Isabel has her 2 bottom teeth and that is it.  Her lack of teeth has not slowed down her eating at all.  She is completely on table food and loving it!  If she can't feed it to herself then she doesn't want it!  She has had quite the growth spurt recently and I think it is because of how much she likes to eat.  I put her on our scale today and it said she is 19.2lbs.  That is 2 lbs in the last 2 months.   She has the eating thing down, now we need to work on her putting herself to sleep.  Big sigh.
Ok now for a few pictures I snapped of my super happy 11 month old!
