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.

My little fashionista (the glasses kill me!) and my big boy

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.

Fancy clothes

In my attempts to get Josh to help me take a decent picture of the new skirt I made for my other blog, Lily couldn't resist the camera. She put on the shirt I had changed out of. I'm pretty sure her head was through the arm hole. She kept calling it her fancy clothes.

Look at that grin! She's a mess.

Posing with Mommy!

Lily and Daddy in his fancy clothes. How can you not love a man who will "wear" a pink striped shirt to take pictures with his "fancy" daughter? "Daddy, you need some fancy clothes too!"

Little Indian Boy

Jacob loves music. It's so cute to watch him dance, but my favorite is when he sings. I sing him Rock-A-Bye Baby sometimes. If I stop before he's ready, he'll sing, "baabbyyy, baaabbyy." He likes my mom to play with his toes and sing 10 Little Indian Boys. She was singing to him at the pool.

Look how happy it makes him.

You can see he's singing it to her, so she'll do it some more. I could just squeeze him!

Sheets/Cox/Underwood/Stone family beach trip!

Last week we spent the whole week at the beach with my family! It was nice to have the whole week off and with my family. It was a good time. The ocean was pretty rough and filled with sea weed, so we ended up spending most of the time at the pool. We did make it to the beach to check it out. Both of my kids thought it was fun to play in the waves, but they were too big for them to play in the water.

Waving hi to daddy.

Jacob's favorite part was his snack of Cheerios. The ocean did crazy things to his hair. I should have took a picture of how it looked when he woke up from his nap!

This little miss priss liked the ocean alright, but was sad that she couldn't find any shells. Too bad she didn't want seaweed; look at all of it behind her!

Blueberry babies!

Lily and I went with my mom on Saturday morning to pick blueberries at the Barber Berry Farm. We picked a whole gallon for our house and couldn't wait to see if Jacob liked them. Oh man, did he! He kept putting them in his mouth, bite, swallow, next! This bowl was about 1/3 full and they ate every one. I love this picture because Lily is watching out for her little brother. How cute is her little hand on his back? I love them. (A note of warning: 2 pints of blueberries split between 2 little tummies leds to stomachaches!)

Jacob's First birthday

We had a small family birthday party for Jacob's first birthday. Lily helped me deocrate the kitchen with streamers and balloons.

Bring on the cake!

This silly stunned look was pretty much his reaction to all of the presents. Lily did get the all opened for him. They have both been playing with them for the last 2 weeks! Rotten kids, I tell you!

Publix cake. Didn't love it. Oh well. It's just a cake!

Not sure about the flame and the people singing.

Getting a taste of frosting. Notice Lily had to wear her princess crown, since Jacob got to wear a "prince" crown.
He got the cake eating figured out! LOVED it.

What good manners! He's sharing with Aunt Sonny.

Look at the scrunched nose as he shovels more in!

He literally had frosting up his nose all night. He would sneeze and more would come out! It was gross, but I'm glad he enjoyed himself. After he at his fill, he was more than happy to give cake to everyone else!

Uncle Sean trying to get in on the action. Look at the clump of cake in his hand. Ridiculous.

Here Pawpaw. Your turn.

Happy Birthday, sweet boy. We love you very much.
