Easter 2012

We spent Saturday night dying Easter eggs.  I didn't think Jacob would really care, but he was so excited to see what color his egg was going to turn out.  He also cried because he couldn't hold the eggs as soon as they came out of the dye.  He only dropped 2 on the floor.

I love them.  Lily wanted most of her eggs to be yellow, her new favorite color.  (She's never going to have teeth again.)

It's the little things...

Have you ever seen anything bring a person more joy than this jelly toast is bringing this boy? He was so excited!

He was also very excited about this Elmo juice. He was chasing the straw and caught his thumb instead!

He's gotten so big. I love seeing him grow!

Smart boy!

Lily and I picked out a new book for Jacob at the Book Fair. It's called Don't Be Scared, Deer! It features a fuzzy, feely little deer. Jacob loves him. He's been kissing and petting him while he "reads".

There is also a "Buuuur" that gets him pretty excited. He loves bears.

He's a fast kisser; I couldn't get a picture before he wanted to see the camera!

My serious scholar. When did my baby become such a big boy?

Trip to the zoo

We decided to go to the zoo with the family on Sunday. We went with Mom and Tom, Sonya, Sean and the babies. I have a great pic of the babies sleeping in the stroller. I wish I could show you, but it didn't last long anyway! They love to be held.

Lily and the flamingos. She wanted a picture of them together as soon as we got there. Thankfully they are close to the beginning!

We fed the giraffes. Awesome. I might have been the most excited Stone. Jacob just looked and Lily had done it before with Sonya. I was pumped.

The big one wanted all the food.

The baby was my favorite.

Jacob, look at the zebra.

Lily, look!

Guys, do you see these zebras?!? (I love these kids. How cute is that little man and his big sister showing him the world?)

My Boy

How can you not just love him?? Those blue eyes, those chubby cheeks. Reaching for me. Heart melts.

My Baby Girl turns 6!

6 Years Old! Where does the time go? It seems like just yesterday that she was toddling around and cooking in her play kitchen. Now she's a big girl, going into first grade tomorrow. She can read. She likes to write stories and draw pictures. She loves her brother more than anything and is almost always a sweet sister. She is a sassy pants, but she has a tender heart still. She is the best thing I've ever done. I can't imagine life without her.

Waiting impatiently for her guest to arrive.

She wanted a Littlest Pet Shop party. As with her most recent parties, we didn't do a whole big party. Just family. Grandma made lemon cupcakes at the request of the birthday girl.

My spoiled daughter got a Wii and TV and games to go along with it. She had NO idea. She was super excited.

I'm glad she's growing to be a smart and beautiful girl, but I wish it wasn't happening so fast.
