Slice of Life

This week's photo challenge for is "Slice of Life"  I have so many great picture of Eva Kate staring right at the camera and photos of Jackson...well running from the camera and out of my whole photo "session" the other day this photo was the sweetest thing.  It makes me smile to see Jackson care for and love his baby sister.  Here I had put some of my necklaces and bracelets down and he started dressing her up.  Love it!

I love my silly boy!

Sometimes the smallest things can make Jackson so finding one of Eva Kate's hats...and loving it!


Last night for dinner I fed EKC chicken and apples for the first time. She LOVED it! We topped it off with pears for dessert. After we ate dinner we needed to make a quick run to Publix to pick up something from the pharmacy. On the drive over I kept asking Andrew "Do you smell that? What is that smell?" Now those of you with kids know where I am heading with this one...actually you probably suspected something when I mentioned the chicken and apple combo!

So we pull into the parking lot, Andrew gets Jackson out and I am in charge of getting EKC out. As I unbuckle her I see that her pink shorts are not so pink can I say this nicely....poop was everywhere it wasn't suppose to be. Thank God I grabbed the diaper bag before we left because I almost left it thinking "this is a fast trip nothing will happen." I learned that you should always be prepared, always have the diaper bag, always have tons of wipes in the car and carry a plastic bag! All we could do is laugh because frankly it is quite hilarious Jackson sitting in the back of the pilot while I am cleaning up EKC and Andrew is just scrubbing her car seat in the middle of the Publix parking lot. In the end, all was clean and I was very thankful that Andrew went with me. I don't know what I would have done if I was alone with both kids and that happened! So that was a first for us and thankfully we could laugh about it!

Here is our precious girl all cleaned up ready to go home.

The Cousins

Friday morning Jackson , Eva Kate and myself ventured out to Zoo Atlanta to meet up with the
"cousins". Jackson doesn't have any first cousins yet, so he my cousins are his "cousins" which is what he calls all of them!

We had so much fun and EKC enjoyed her first trip to the zoo!

We left the zoo early to make sure we could catch a "normal" nap before we went to the airport to pick Andrew up! Everything worked out great!

Outside Fun

Today before nap we had a few fun moments outside. I LOVE SPRING! I decided to try to get some shots of Eva Kate in the front yard, impromptu with messy hair and whatever outfit she had on. It was the first time baby was on the fresh earth. She didn't quite know what to do but loved feeling the wind blow in her wild hair and touch the scratchy grass. So instead of her normal smiling frenzy of photographs you get to see another side of EKC, curious and soaking in every moment of something new.

Also there are a few photos of Jackson on his tricycle pushing it up the hill only to ride down fast...he is such a boy!

I home you enjoy!

We have teeth!

Eva Kate finally pushed those two little boogers of teeth out a few weeks ago. I have tried and tried to get a picture of those beauties but never could...until this morning! Enjoy!

Gotta love my big boy!
