Playing outside

Now that the weather is warming up, we've been spending more time outside. And trying to make our yard look a little better rather than it's current state of neighborhood dog-poo stop. Michael's been working hard the last few days raking leaves out of the side and back yard. The lady who lived here before us, as a neighbor told us "discouraged grass to grow by letting the leaves pile up". Meaning there's about 30 years of leaves and branches that needs to be cleaned up! But the plus is that the soil underneath seems really good! Reed has been a big help. He LOVES playing outside, and as soon as Michael gets home from work he's ready to go! He helps Michael move leaves around, eats dirt by the handfuls (or just lays on his belly and licks it up), puts rocks in his dump truck and runs all over! Here's a few pics from yesterday. Enjoy!

Oh, and on the Molly front - still not here! She's just enjoying her time in my belly I guess. The doctor says any time now! Of course, she said that last week, too. So we'll just have to wait for Miss Molly to decide she's ready!

What's been going on

We've been pretty busy. Sorry for the lack of blog updates. Hopefully you'll get your fill out of this post, as it may be a while before I have time again! So biggest news: I went to the doctor and even though Molly is not due for another 3 weeks, doc says it will probably be this week. And probably sooner rather than later! So we were busy today working on her room. Mom and Dad came over to watch Reed while I was at the doctor and to help around the house. Mom and I worked on a mural in Molly's room, while Dad played with Reed and worked on some trim. They also got her window treatments hung, and they are gorgeous! Here's some photos of her room:

So Reed has had a lot going on, too! We've been working on his sleeping. We are no longer rocking him to sleep anymore, and he's going to sleep on his own. Which is going really well! Although sometimes at naptime he chooses to play instead of sleep. This is what we found the other day when we went to get him after a nap in which he choose to play instead.

That's right, he apparently got a little hungry and took a chunk out of his crib. And he was pretty proud of himself. He made sure to show me what he had done. And couldn't understand why I wasn't happy about this! Hopefully this will be a one-time thing!

And this last one is him and his Daddy reading books after Michael got home from work. So sweet!

Thanks for visiting.
