Top 10

1. We had a fun St. Patrick's Day weekend with our family in Delphos. The McCormick boys made fun memories with Hayes and Landen at the St. Patrick's parade in Lima. Ryan's Uncle Joe was the Grand Marshall!

2. Hayes' "2 Year" book came in. I must not have been paying attention when I chose the size...because it is a huge book. Like 12x12 huge. Oh well. At least it's full of cute pictures of a cute boy.

3. Ryan's birthday was last week. We celebrated with a delicious cajun shrimp and sausage pasta and Key Lime pie, Ryan's favorites. We gave him some fun presents and he got off bottle washing duty for a night...which is kind of a big deal in this house.

4. While driving home one day last week, I passed a restaurant with a gaping hole in the front, probably from a car accident. I said "oh my gosh" under my breath. A minute later, I hear Hayes from the backseat saying quietly "oh me dosh." That kid is so cute.

5. Keller rolled from his back to his tummy tonight. He's been working on it all week and finally got it figured out. I sure do wish that baby would stop growing so fast.

6. You know how some songs trigger very specific memories? I have heard "My Wish" by Rascal Flats so many times this last week and it has some pretty fantastic memories attached to it, specifically from senior year of college with my Kappa Deltas. PC '02!

7. Shannon is getting married this weekend and I can't wait for all of the wedding festivities!!!!

8. Crawfish for supper on Thursday. Can't. Wait.

9. If you can't remember how many cats you have, then you probably have too many. Just saying...

10. Thank God for answered prayers!

"Um...Mom...I need my own chair. I think I'm already big enough."

Mommy is the best place to take a nap...

Hayes thought this was super fun...for about 5 seconds.

Baby TOMS. Cuteness I can't resist.

Love my new jewelry!

Daddy getting some birthday love from his boys...

Those hands must be delicious.

These two love each other. I love that Hayes kept putting goldfish in front of Keller.

Happy St. Patrick's Day from my little leprechauns!

Top 10

1. I finally ordered a small armchair for Hayes...and he loves it! So do I! I won't wait so long to order one for Keller.

2. I love my Shutterfly app. It makes uploading and ordering my fun Instagram pics super easy. They have also sent me fun promo codes for app use only!

3. Went shopping this weekend for some upcoming wedding festivities. Trying on clothes 3 months after giving birth is not fun. Also, shopping for clothes right before Easter is not easy. Most options were spring colors, and that is not the look I was going for. I did find something I am actually really happy with...thanks to another purchase...

4. Spanx. I bought spanx. Nothing motivates you to work out like shopping in the supportive undergarment section.

5. Hayes has been singing "Ring around the rosie" this evening. But he keeps singing the "ashes, ashes" part over and over. And he doesn't always pronounce the "sh" very well...

6. Keller's 3 month post is in the works and will be up soon...I promise.

7. So breastfeeding is going really well with Keller. So well that I am making way more milk than I need. Our freezer is overflowing with breastmilk right now and I am pretty excited about my plans for it. I am going to make a donation to the Mother's Milk Bank of Ohio. They provide human breast milk to those in need, specifically premature or ill infants whose mothers cannot provide them with milk.

8. I have trouble with lunches. I need good, healthy lunches that are easy to eat in the car and don't need refrigerated.

9. We ate catfish from City BBQ this weekend...and it was quite tasty!

10. Sometimes, there are people in your life who are so important, you can't even use the word "friend" to describe them. I am lucky enough to have several people like this in my life. One of them needs prayers as she waits to hear results from some tests she has had over the last few days. Pray for peace and calm for her and her family and the people taking care of her.

Ready for cute pictures? 

We got Hayes a potty chair to start getting him interested in potty training. Turns out he's more interested in wearing it on his head. He kept saying "No Mommy! No picture!" Yeah right, Hayes. You know better than that.

 Hayes loves tummy time...way more than Keller does.

Loves to help "wash the dishes." 

This picture pretty much sums Hayes up...

Sweet Keller is 3 months old!

Lean on me...when you're not strong (enough to sit up by yourself.) Just make sure you don't steal my cheerios.

Winter wonderland.

Kicked back after a long day of throwing balls and sitting in timeout for it at daycare...

Of course this is what usually happens when I try to take a picture.

Mommy's snuggle buddy.

Seriously. That face. I want to eat him, he's so cute.

Happy National Chocolate Chip Cookie Week! We celebrated with a cookie date at our favorite bakery. They made these super cute monster cookie sandwiches.

Don't worry. He finished the whole thing.

My house has turned into a boys' club...but mommy is still the boss;)

Time for the weekly Instagram series. I have some super cute pictures of my babies for you today...

"Nap time is over. For me...and my stuffed animals."

Such a daddy's boy...

But it's okay because this one is a Momma's boy:)

My cute kitchen assistant

This is one of Hayes' old outfits...from when he was 8 months old...and my almost 3 month old is wearing it...

Happy boy!

Saturday morning playtime!

No one should have to do tummy time alone.
