vincent king


wow.. 18 months go by, and it seems like a whirlwind. i remember the moment you came out, and we all laughed because you were heavier than ava at her birth weight. you know what you want, and go after it. you continue to love animals, laughing, and are curious about everything you aren't supposed to be. i must say, you are teaching me things these past months, as you are turning into such a "boy". not that i mind.. you save the snuggles for me.. which means i can still count on you to be my momma's boy.

you love your nooney, playing with ava toys, and still look forward to sleeping.

thanks for warming my heart with your smile. i love you.

florence james...

it is hard to believe you are 18 months today. i can remember the day you were born like it was yesterday. for nearly two months i sat on the couch anticipating your arrival. wondering if you would really be a girl like they said. your dad and i decided on your name not long before you came.. and i couldn't think it was more perfect. you are totally a florence. you continue to be a joker, a helper, and a lover of climbing, mischief, and demanding your thoughts. your love for your siblings is overflowing.

i can't wait to see what the next 18 months brings sweet girl. thanks for keeping me on my toes. you brighten my every day. i love you.

happy new year!

what do you resolve to do differently this year?

me? i am not such a new year's resolutionist...

but. i do intend to-

be more purposeful in 2010. purposeful in terms of my body, my family, and my free time.

that is a window wide open really. lucky for me.

children's museum...

we ventured to the children's museum last week. we met the massie kids there with ro.
i didn't get many pictures of the big kids..

but thought these were reasonably post worthy.

preschool program

well, ava's class did a little preformance today.
i will post pictures later, but it was the cutest thing. of course, they all got shy... so you could really only hear one or two kids.

i had tears in my eyes the whole time. because i was.. proud of my big girl... in shock because i can't believe she is old enough to be in school... and because she is the cutest three year old i know.

guess i got my mom's crying gene.
