Henry's School Easter fun

We had a lot of fun watching Henry sing at his Easter chapel. Oh, he did a great job! He looked so darn cute in Joseph's outfit, too! Thanks for letting us borrow, Joseph!

He sang, did the hand movements, and even jumped. He did decide to stop participating and stuck out his tongue, crossed his arms, and sat down. 

Henry's Easter hat was so much fun. Hot glue can make anything happen. He wanted a fireman hat so that's what we did. We put fireman Legos, eggs, and grass on it. He loved it!

Playdates Galore!

We didn't do much during Spring Break, but we did get to play with friends.  

We got to see Molly and Madeline in Ruston at a fun playground.  We even enjoyed Eskimoes.

Ella Cate came over with Michelle to play with Sarah Kathryn.  How fun for the girls!

We went to our new Sonic that built a big, fancy playground. It's so nice, but weird that our nicest playground was built by a fast food restaurant! We had fun!

Jennifer invited us for a fun lake play date at her in-laws lake houses. It was glorious! I mean glorious! The weather was beautiful, the property was a dream, and the people were sweet. Just a laid back afternoon and the highlight of our Spring Break!

Bennett is just the sweetest thing.  He is tender-hearted and is so loving.  I love watching him figure things out and watch his little mind work.  Oh, the heart of this boy!  Here are a couple of things he's said lately.

On the couch...

The other day we were going to our first machine pitch game...he was finishing watching How to Train Your Dragon 2 while I was loading the car with kids, water bottles, and baseball gear.  It was almost time for me to get Bennett to the car when I looked over and he had tears in his eyes.  I sat down and asked what was wrong and he said with the saddest expression "his father DIED!" So, I hugged him and we both just cried for a minute.  My big boy.

At the dinner table...

Me: Henry, sit down it's time to say prayers
Bennett: yeah, you better sit down or God will make you go time out in heaven
Bennett in a deep god voice: Henry, sit down!

In the car...

Bennett: Otis (Granddad's old dog who died a couple years ago) is in heaven in the clouds
Henry: Is Otis in the clouds, Bennett?
Bennett: yes, all dogs are happy in heaven

At home...

Bennett (with a big smile on his face): Last night (at Spring Fling) Marshall kept trying to get me to kiss Pressley!

I don't remember how the rest of the conversation went, but he mentioned something about the boys and girls chasing each other.  And it starts.

Bennett is so sporty.  I just love that he loves sports.  It's baseball season and he is playing machine pitch.  I thought that he was waaaaaaaaaay too young for it, but Little League changed the age rule and he makes him play up.  He loves it!  The machine isn't really calibrated to hit in the same spot, but that doesn't stop the Astros!  This isn't like coach pitch or t-ball where you get to try until you hit. 3 strikes and you're out.  This is how baseball really is so we need to learn the rules, I guess. They really try and have won their first 2 games.  Gooooooo Astros!
Big boy!

This boy.  I don't even know what to say about this little mischievous thing.  He's mine.

My sweet big boy!!

We only know a few of the kids names on the team.

Pops and Carolyn came to the first game.

Egg Dyeing at the 604

We have so much fun at the camp.  The guys like doing all the dirty work, get the tractor stuck, and riding 4-wheelers.  I had the greatest idea to bring the egg dyeing supplies out to the camp because it just doesn't matter if a mess was made...cue me not being uptight!  It was glorious!

Henry dunked his entire hand in each cup of color...I wasn't phased.

Nana was a good helper!

Sarah Kathryn is 11 months old!

Happy 11 months to our baby girl!  How did you get so big so fast?

Doctor appointment: none this month, but we were there twice last week.  Weight was 21 pounds.  And you were diagnosed with RSV.  We had a breathing treatment, steroid, and an inhaler.  Girl!

Clothes: You wear size 4 diapers.  You are wearing mostly 12-18 month clothes.  I've been putting bows in more and more and you just take them right out.  Ugh!  You look so cute either way.

Eating: You eat a 6 ounce bottle every three hours during the day while you are awake.  You eat fruit/oatmeal in the morning and 2 containers of food in the evening.  You've been trying new foods like blueberries, pasta, bread, and a few other things.  You seem to love baby food. :)  You don't really grasp the sippy cup idea.  We will keep working on it.

Sleeping:  You are getting great naps now. You take a good nap in the morning and a 2 hour nap in the afternoon.  You usually go to bed for the night between 7-8.  We put you in your bed and you cry for 20 seconds and go right to sleep.  We've had a few rough nights lately with you staying up all. night. long.  Poor girl.  The wheezing has been keeping you up at night.

Likes: being held while standing up...this is a sure fire way to get you to stop crying...we just stand up and you stop, riding in the car, riding in the stroller, eating, the paci, splashing during your baths, your brothers, watching people, smiling, knowing what is going on at all times, clapping, and laughing

Dislikes: seeing me walk out of a room, being alone, and being put in your bed

News this month: You are pulling up!  Only to your knees though.  You rarely lock your knees.  Hmmmmm.  I don't think you will be walking by 1 and that is just fine.  I like having you stay a baby for a long time!
