Ahhh Spring.  We are lovin' it!  Kids are out all day riding bikes and playing, and Diesel is out too enjoying the scenery.  By scenery, of course I mean our neighbor's yard, which Diesel loves to stalk, waiting for their dog to come out.  Next door they have a German Shepherd, just a year or two old.  Cute guy!  Diesel sits there waiting... and waiting... and waiting....

Another My Guy!

This smile is bright as the sun!  Every morning I get to see this smile - well, most every morning.  One of the sweetest things on this earth is a sleepy, bright-eyed smile saying "good morning Mom", and this guy has one of the best.

Every day I learn new things about my little man.  He is such a little individual! Quick to show me new things he can do with his body (i.e. snap, hop on one foot) and very excited about growing and learning these things. This guy is also quick to ask questions about confusing things he may see or hear, wanting answers that make sense to him and help him figure out this life.  He is sensitive though; if he asks a serious question and is met with criticism or isn't taken seriously, he is quick to retreat and slow to reach out later on. 

I love this little man so much.  He can do anything!! While he gets very frustrated with his limitations sometimes, with some coaxing he will keep trying until he gets it.  This little man likes to prove the theory of 'practice makes perfect'. 
 I love watching him learn and grow, the delight in his world so plain on his face.  My sweet guy.

My Guy

Isn't it amazing how children, siblings, have their own distinct personalities?  I love this little man.  He is my sunshine, my sweetie.  My warm spring day.

This guy has a heart of gold. He will share anything, give you the shirt off his back and not complain. He cares about people, and if someone is hurting he is gentle and nurturing.  That being said, he will laugh if you fall on your face.  Not from a mean place or anything, just because the sight of you stepping in a pothole and toppling over tickles his funny bone.  I love that about him. 

If I burst out with a beat, he will dance. He moves his little hips and rocks out, and it is the cutest thing I have ever seen.  When I point the camera his way, more times than not he will strike some outrageous pose, mugging for the camera.  Those pictures are the very best, the most treasured.

Some days I find it hard to believe he was sent to us, and how blessed we are to have this little man in our lives.  How richer we are for having him in our family!!  I wouldn't change one hair on his head, his sweet little-kid-accent, his tiny little hands that love to build stuff or bake stuff.  He is amazing.

Oh yeah, and he dresses himself too!  haha  :)

Quick Note

     I have been MIA for a while.  Again.  But have no fear, here I am.  Does anyone even read this thing anyway? 

     We have been busy, and the next few weeks are even more so.  The boys are in their last month of preschool, then school's out for summer!  YAY!  There is a field trip coming up, a Mother's Day Tea tomorrow, and even a little graduation ceremony on the last day! 

     Some of our family have been over for a visit... quite a few actually and we have enjoyed visiting with each and every one of them over the past few weeks. How I miss our families!! Everyone is so far away. Grandpa Ron brought his guitar and even gave the boys a lesson, which they absolutely loved...

   Little rock stars, both of them.  Man I love those little guys!  Those are new suits that Grandpa bought... now they are sharp dressed men. 

    Here's to spring - all you peeps out there.  Lovin' it, living it, and looking forward to summer, the best summer yet!  (I will do my best to post our activities more often!!)
