We have had a fabulously boring weekend, Grandma Olsen came down to visit and it was so wonderful to have her here. Bennett was so excited to have her to play with and give her her new purple blog book. It was the first time that I got the book that Bennett has just gone crazy showing it to people and asking to read it (I know it took me 8 months to finish the 2011 book… it was a hard one this year!) . This may be one of my favorite things I have done as a mama. I have chronicled their entire lives since the day we found out we were pregnant with Bennett. It has captured the memories of camping, first days of toddler groups, numerous trips to the zoo and everything in between. Since we got it this week Bennett will read it and I can tell her truly remembers those days and whatever adventure we were on. I love that I will be able to look back at all the fun we had and how it was to be a mom when the kids were young. I have really tried to find the best way to capture the feeling of watching my kids grow and I will cherish these books for the rest of my life.
We get one copy for us and one for each set of the grandparents… I think the Grandmas might love the books as much as I do 🙂
And the event that we are capturing this week… Annie girl trying to crawl!! She is so close I swear the first time I look away she is going to scamper across the room. She is into doing this little butt scoot that she crawls out with her hands and her butt catches up a bit…. I know I am celebrating a little prematurely but I don’t care it is cute and I love it!
I swear she has the darkest eyes I have ever seen… such a pretty girl!
Loving her some Hurlie time… She loves this dog
Alanzo came to visit us today and this was forsure the only 3 minutes they were sitting quietly 🙂
This girl loves her bath time!!!
Reminds me of this little guy from 3 years ago…
