Business Casual

Cooper is my little firecracker.  This morning, while getting dressed, he decided the simple blue t-shirt that I picked out just wouldn't work for his Thursday.  He marched into his room and picked out this outfit.

That's right ladies, it's a clip on and those are shorts AND crocs.

This kid is so wonderful. So over-the-top and I love every ounce of it.  He loves big and loathes big.  He's full of such personality.  I just love to sit back and watch him interact with those around him.  Kevin and I often compare him to Ferdinand the Bull.

He's such a great protector and lover.  He's going to be a great man one day.

Here Comes Summer.

Summer is approaching.  Parker is playing tee ball on the weekends now and we are eagerly anticipating opening day of the neighborhood pool.  A few weeks ago, Kevin even gave the boys their "summer cuts".  I think they look a bit like concentration camp survivors.
Nice and clean after a bath.  
He thinks this is a right of passage.  Every boy must have their head buzzed prior to the start of summer, it's how summer really gets started. I'm learning to love the shorter hair, it's definitely easier on me.

Hadley is 5 Months Old.

I'm not really sure where the time has gone.  Hadley is 5 months old today.  She's such a sweet baby. Almost rolling over, starting to push up to crawl and talking a ton.  She's so very easy-going.  Low maintenance and just a sweet baby.

Watching Parker play tee ball.
I'm really struggling with her getting older.  I know she's my last one and I'm just not ready for her to grow up.  She still sleeps in bed with us and I really cherish the quiet time and just listening to her breath.

I'm not sure why watching my little girl, my last one, grow up is so difficult for me.  With Parker and Cooper, I eagerly anticipated every milestone, with Hadley, I am dreading them. It's time for her to try real food for the first time and for the last few weeks, I've just put off trying.  I can't even push myself to buy rice cereal. I keep telling myslef, "I'll do it next week".  I think next week is finally here.  I've just got to find a way to deal with my own emotions, revel in her growth and cherish the memories of her.
