I have a two year old!!!

Trace will be TWO years old on December 23 at 2:22am!!! :) Happy Birthday Baby Boy!!!!

When he was born

His 1st Birthday Party

His 2nd Birthday Party

Tomorrow is going to be my little boo boo's SECOND birthday. Where did the time go?? I can't believe he is already two years old!
  • He is such a ham. He loves to see what outfit he is wearing and check himself out in the mirror. We go to the doctor next week so I can't wait to see how much he weighs and how tall he is. He is usually in the 90-95 % for his height and always in the 50% for his weight. He is a bit skinny and a picky eater (does not get that from his mommy!). He also loves shoes, his, daddy's, mine, and even tries to put his sister's shoes on his feet.
  • He is starting to talk a lot! He is saying: It falls-for everything he throws or that actually falls! He is singing: Ho Ho Ho Who Wouldn't Know and Jingle Bells and Row Row Row (Your Boat). He is saying: Momma, Dada, Mimi, BiBi, Sissy, Moon, Cheese, Boat, Night Night, YUCK (bc momma says that when she changes a stinky diaper), Keys, and some other words. I am just excited that he is finally talking. He still signs "please" and "more" and "love" and refuses to try to say those things.
  • He loves to take a bath and has learned to blow bubbles. It is so funny. He loves to play Peek-A-Boo with mommy's glasses and we are having trouble with him listening....he is constantly into something-his favorite is escaping from the kitchen or climbing onto something and getting a cell phone, a remote control, or some kind of lotion or baby powder in his room.
  • He does very well at daycare and apparently eats ALL of his food. At home-not so much. He has started eating turkey lunchmeat-normally he puts meat to his tongue and then pushes it away! He loves cars and trucks and planes and anything that makes a loud noise. He also loves his sissy and hugs her and gives her kisses!!!
  • Oh I love my little stinker!

Photo Shoot With Evie

We had a little photo shoot this morning since I decided we were NOT leaving the house! :)

Christmas Song

Well of course Trace has learned a Christmas song. Of course it would have "ho" in it but that's okay. I think he learned it because his Mimi bought him this microphone that makes your voice sound like an elf. It has this song on it and of course he is sticking the thing and making me sing the songs...after he puts his mouth and slobber all over it! hahaha!

Merry Christmas!!!

Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas Everyone! I can't wait for the excitement on Christmas morning. Trace doesn't like "ho ho ho" but I know he is going to like his gifts. Evie doesn't mind "ho ho ho" but she doesn't really seem to understand. The pics below are ones from our Christmas Card this year (taken in Highlands, NC in October).

10 months

I am super late cause this baby is almost 11 months on October 11. This was taken on September 11. Yeah, I don't have time to breathe!!!! Much less post pictures.

Evie now has 4 teeth, number 5 coming in. She has been teething all month. Waking up at weird hours. (Mommy doesn't like that!! :)

She can say bye bye and wave bye bye. She can say dada and mama.

She is showing her "diva" personality more and more. She does not want to be alone in a room. She does not like her car seat. She does not always want to take a nap. But, she is sooo loving. She loves to giver you "open mouth" kisses and pats me on the shoulder when I am rocking her to sleep!

She does love to eat: pancakes, chicken sticks, peas, greenbeans, butterbeans, cornbread, mums, cheerios, basically anything I give her.

And she is drinking her bottle all by herself! :) Makes life easier. Now if I could just get her to change her own diapers??!!

21 months

Today my little stinker is 21 months. My 21 month post will be later...

right now I have a 21 month and a 10 technically I could say that they are 11 months apart.

I wish I had money for every time someone far apart are they? And then their mouth drops open!

I wish I had money for every time someone thinks they are twins!

The money would pay for these diapers!!!! :)

Recently, Trace says something that sounds like "wah dah" and points. So we think maybe he is saying, "What's That?" So we tell him what something is (anything from the stove to Daddy's hat to fan to lights)...well tonight he did the SWEETEST thing. We were looking at his little baptism photo book that someone gave him and I put all the pictures from that day in it. He was looking at pictures of himself, hubby, and me. We got to the page with my dad on it. He pointed at it and said, "wah dah" and I said that is Granddaddy. He waves at him and says, "hi"!!! He was being such a little pill earlier and well, then he is such the sweetest thing ever!!! :)
This is the picture of Grandaddy (who passed away 3 months later).
This was a picture of Trace on his baptism day.

One in a Melon

Trace-this is your Summer Fun Mother's Day Out art project #2. What's wrong with it you ask? Well you WOULD NOT let your teachers put black paint on your fingers so you could make the seeds. So I guess you are "One in a Melon" but seedless watermelons!!!!

Bye Bye Bye!

Evie can wave and say bye!

8 months

Happy 8 months (last Friday) Baby Girl!!!! July 11, 2011

This is a pic of you in your headband Mimi bought you in HHI. (Your Aunt Amanda says you look like a pageant girl! ha ha ha)
You were watching your cousin Logan eat a sandwich. You REALLY wanted it!
You stuff as many puffs in your mouth as you can!

Evie I can't believe you are 8 months.

Lately, you are a momma's girl....and when I say that...I mean it. I leave the room and you cry (even with relatives). B.B. took you to Edisto early and she couldn't leave your side you cried when she left the room. When I got there, you did the same thing with me (even when I left you with your daddy). You did the same thing when we went to Hilton Head. What's up with that? What are you going to do when I go back to work? Let's hope you don't do that at MDO in the fall. I don't want to get that phone call that you won't settle down! :)

  • You got a bottom tooth on the right.
  • You are waving and say ba ba ba.
  • You say na na na when you are hungry.
  • You are completely crawling on your hands and knees.
  • You are pulling yourself up and even in the crib I found you standing one day.
  • When I put you in your crib you sit up and scream when it is time you go to bed. AND you still wake up about 4am and have to sleep with me. No bottle, no passy, nothing will let you go back to sleep. I have decided that if you sleep til 4am in your own bed, that's good enough for now!!
  • You and your brother are wearing the same size diapers!
  • You LOOOOVVVEEEE Baby Einstein. You don't even move when it is on. We have created a TV monster, I guess.
  • You always have these BLOWOUT diapers. What's up with that?
  • You love to eat MUMs. You really love anything we give you. You even licked some bacon last weekend at the beach. Your brother wouldn't touch probably would have eaten it if you had teeth!
  • You have learned to scream (from your brother) in delight. We took the two of you to lunch yesterday and it was a disaster/nuts. We won't be doing that for a while!! :)
  • We love you to pieces. Some days I could just eat you up! :)

My B00-Boo's Summer Fun Art Work

Let's say this is interesting! Were the eyes supposed to go on the sun? I assume they "glued" the items down where he put them? :) And I love that he has a cloud on his head!

Evie Likes To Laugh!

18 months!!

Happy 18 Months Trace! You are officially a year and a half!

Wow! Times goes fast. Trace turned 18 months on June 23 -as well as the one year anniversary of my dad's death :( Above are some pictures of Trace in a camo onesie. I figured it being appropriate since my dad was the biggest hunter ever. He loved it and would hunt most things!

Trace-not sure how much you weigh, we will see at your appointment but last time you only weighed 23 lbs...let's hope more cause your sissy is catching up to you. (And mommy forgot to make your appointment so it's not til July 19th!!)

  • You are the sweetest and darnest thing. You love to take pillows and blankets and lay on them like you are going night night. You love to pull the blankets out of the bin in your room and do that. You love to give kisses and come hug us in the lap, on the leg, wherever.
  • You only really say yum yum, bye bye, hi, out (you think that is the dog's name!). You are talking your weird language and we are not sure what you are saying! :) You are repeating things and they sound like a weird alien language.
  • You love yogurt covered raisins (the newest addition) and grapes. However, this morning you threw ALL of your grapes on the floor. Over and over you get in trouble for that and you still do it! What am I going to do with you?
  • People think you are a girl all the time cause your hair is getting long in the back with curls! Someone said soccer hair...yep, you got the soccer hair!
  • You are into everything. Your latest is feeding your sister things she doesn't need (just this morning...LINT, as well as food you DON'T want!) and trying to open drawers and find the remote, cell phone, etc. Just last week you have decided you want to put your foot on the kitchen table!
  • Last night you were standing on my stomach and once you got balanced you were raising your hands above your head as if you were saying, "Look mom no hands!"
  • You are obsessed with lights and fans. If they are NOT on, you point until we turn them on! And your sound machine. Everything has to been on in your room...your two fans and the sound machine. It makes me laugh.

7 months-June 10th

Guess who was 7 months June 10? Yep, Evie Rose. Whewww....time goes fast.

First of all it wasn't too great of a day. You had a 102 fever and were shaking and breathing funny (so I thought) and threw I rushed you to the doctor. At the doctor's office your temp was 103.4! :( They ruled out many things cause the only symptom was a fever. Then they took blood. One vein popped so they had to do the other vein. YOU DID NOT LIKE IT ONE BIT. You screamed bloody murder the whole time. By the time I put you in your car seat, you were out. As of today, you are still having a fever but not as high. No idea why?!! They said viral but you have had a low grade temp for more than 10 days.

On a brighter note, these are some things you are doing:
  • screeching-I think big brother T taught you this.
  • loving some teething biscuits
  • sitting up
  • doing "splits" and getting stuck
  • doing gymnastics in your crib and so your paci goes across the room
  • loving T's toys...especially his driving wheel that plays music
  • loving Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (cause of your bro)
  • scooting all over the place
  • you were taking swim lessons but not sure we are going to finish those
  • getting a little "rooster" on the top of your head

Doing a split
Sweet baby girl
7 months

Making a big mess with that teething biscuit!!!!

We love you baby girl! :)

Highlands Photo Shoot

Memorial Day weekend we went to Highlands, NC. Can I just tell you how good it feels up there compared to this heat here? Anyway, we went for my cousin Heather's engagement "Summer Country Picnic". The food was sooo good (cooked by my great Aunt). I especially like the carrot cake bars. Deliciousness. And I forgot to take pictures DURING the party-um, taking care of two babies....but did have a little photo shoot with the T-man while everyone was setting up for the party.

I like to EAT!

Trace attempts to feed himself some cream of wheat! Messy, messy!

Evie tries sweet potato puffs. She chokes every time but opens her mouth for more!

So these days, all I feel like I do is feed:

My day is like this:
5ish: Evie bottle
7:30ish: Trace sippy cup milk
8:30sih: BOTH eat their breakfast T-pancakes, oatmeal, or cream of wheat and fruit. Evie-oatmeal and baby food fruit
11:00 Snack for T if he is still up. Sometimes Evie wants bottle
12:30ish Lunch for BOTH again. T-still baby food jar #3, yogurt, crackers,shredded cheese. He is the pickiest eater!
E-the fruit rice cereal and a yogurt.
4ish-snacks for all! Goldfish(not cheese one..T only likes the "sweet" kind). Or yogurt, yogurt covered raisins, ritz crackers, etc. I have been giving E puffs. She is not so sure about them!
5-Evie bottle
6:30ish-Dinner for all.....T-baby food jar #3, yogurt, cheese, milk, crackers, a fruit cup of somekind. E-Regular rice cereal and a baby food #1 veggie.
SEE???All I do is feed my babies!!! :)

17 months

Guess who was 17 months yesterday (May 23, 2011)? Yep, Little Man. I can't believe his is getting so big...he is so tall and yet only weighs 23 lbs (for like the past 3 months). He wears size 18-24 month tops, size 9-12 months shorts, and size 18 month shortalls. Yep, 9 month shorts. He doesn't get skinny from momma!
He says: dada, mama (a picture...of anything is mama, a mountain, me, or any person), he can say bye bye clearly. He can make a monkey noise and a lion noise. He calls our dog Harley "out". Since hubby tells the dog that all the time, I guess he think his name is Out! :)
He can sign more, milk, and please. He LOVES Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. He is a very picky eater. Just this week he started eating cheese and loves Apple Jacks. Anything sweet but no meat! He gives kisses to everyone even Evie. But sometimes we just get the "cheek"!

He is a wild man. Not so good at the word no. If he has something of yours don't tell him no, he'll usually throw it down! :(

And just this morning...guess who was bare bottom sitting in their crib. We have our hands full!
