May 20th, 2011 This year's Garden

I remember planting the garden last year with William-pretty cute. This year-pretty hilarious! Of course, his attention span isn't very long, but he got it down pretty quick what's required to plant a seed (probably because he's seen his mom plant quite a few in his lifetime!). I'll let the pictures (and video) tell the story...

I would hand him a seed and point to where he needed to put it.

"Move over Dad, I think I can do it now!"

Cousin Audre, Grandma, Mamma & William. It was such a great day for a boat ride!

"Dadda, I like this boat!"

William wasn't too sure about Dad putting on all his gear...

I finally got him to stand on Daddy's lap. He was diggin' the flashlight.

May 12th, 2011 1st Trimester down...12 weeks

Now when I ask William if he wants to take a picture with the baby, he knows exactly what to do. He climbs into position so that he can wrap his arms around my belly and then gives a great big smile (o:

We had to take a preggo pic while she was in town from Oklahoma...
Matina @ 31 weeks (with her first), Melissa @ 12 weeks (this is what happens when your body knows what being pregnant is all about-you pop right out there!).
