Bathing Bubbas

Bennett loves following Deacon everywhere and involving himself in whatever Deacon is doing! Most days Deacon barely tolerates his presence. But moments like this make me so excited about how close they will one day be.

Making a Spectacle

One of Deacon's favorite new activities is putting my glasses on. (Woohoo, first glimmer of imagination!)

After taking his picture in my glasses, we thought we would pull out his old glasses to try on, which he found hysterical! That led to us looking up his baby photos... and sharing all the fun with you!

Valentine's Day

The boys had a great Valentine's Day! 
Carson had a class party, and I'm sure all the parents and his teacher loved his gift:
Silly String!!
Deacon's were a little safer:

And we made sure that he and his gluten-free friend were included:
 Melissa and Bennett went to Deacon's class party at an indoor bouncing facility and took pictures for us.

Brian and I aren't big Valentine's Day celebrators.  We gave each other gifts, but were happy to hang out at the house and eat dinner with the kiddos. :)

Old MacDonald's Farm

The weather was gorgeous today, so we took advantage and spent a family day at Old MacDonald's Farm.  It was perfect: no crowd, all activities are included in the cost of admission, entire farm and all water is completely fenced off (aka: Deacon-proof), multiple playgrounds, and lots of friendly animals to pet and feed!


Bennett spent the day practicing standing!



Deacon did amazing!!  He would walk up and pet the animals without us prompting him and even helped to feed them!

 He doesn't look excited here, but he really loved riding the horse.
 Carson loved it too, and was especially thrilled that his horse stopped to poop! hehe

 The hay was Bennett's favorite!
