Happy Friday

We've been stuck at home most of the week to be available to meet the HVAC men since our heat/air still isn't working. This has been going on for months! All that to say I don't have much to show for our week. I didn't take pictures with any of my cameras this week, just my phone. My mom gave Bryce a haircut today and I took the picture of Emmy on Saturday to show off a cute new outfit from a friend. Emmy started sleeping through the night last Friday. I hope it continues! Not sure what order everything will show up since I'm blogging from my phone.

Bryce the encourager

Bryce is the sweetest boy EVER.

A while back I got upset about something and Jason told Bryce to tell me he loved me!  That instance seemed to carry over and now anytime he senses that I'm upset, whether or not it's a heavy sigh or a change in my voice, he always comes to me and says, "I love you, Mama". 

Just recently if I'm upset, he has started saying, "It's OK, Mama.  I love you".  He just melts my heart.  I guess I should give Jason some credit too since he started it!  I just love my boys! 

Emmy is 11 weeks old today!  She has slept through the night the past 3 nights and I am enjoying a little extra sleep.

I realize this isn't the best picture, but it's all I could get today!

our first "baby"

Macy doesn't get blog attention like the kids do, but she is just as special.  Here are a few of my favorite pictures of Macy we have snapped through the years!  Enjoy!

Macy loves to be warm.  She hopped into the dryer once when we were folding laundry.

She's a pretty smart dog!

Staying warm and learning a little on the laptop.

another great day

We took a trip to Maymont today to see the animals and get our exercise for the week day!  My mom tagged along and I'm so glad she did.  I haven't invested in a double stroller yet so it was nice to have someone to push Bryce so he wouldn't have to walk the whole way.

We remembered to bring quarters for the food machine even though I didn't think we would need them because Bryce NEVER wants to feed the animals.  However, he surprised me and actually fed them.  Maybe the baby goats weren't as intimidating as the mama goats!  They were so stinkin' cute!

Bryce was most excited about the bears!  I was glad the bear was close enough for us to see.  They usually tend to hang out in the back of the caged area.

Love my sweet boy.

I have pictures of me as a kid hopping these same rocks.  Bryce wasn't scared at all.  He went right out and started jumping!  He's loving all the things he can do now that he is getting so brave!

playing at the park

The weather was beautiful today so we headed to the park!

Emmy was glad to have a playmate since Kelly keeps Keagan on Mondays.

Taylor enjoyed eating chips and watching for a while.

Keeping cool in the tunnel.

sunday snapshots

We tried to cheer Emmy up for the photo shoot but she wasn't having it!

Bryce was loving life today.  He's been missing spending his days with Chase since I've been home on maternity leave.  Kelly went out of town today so Chase got to come over while Dave was at work.  The boys enjoyed playing together and got along great!  Dave and Chase had planned on playing putt-putt tonight so Jason and Bryce tagged along.

They both ended up wearing red monster truck shirts today (totally unplanned)!

Bryce was telling me about putt-putt tonight at bedtime and was very excited that his ball and putter were both red (his favorite color).

No hole in ones for Bryce, but Jason and Chase got one on the same hole!

Happy Friday.  Hope everyone has a nice weekend.

cleaning off the camera card

Bryce has still been enjoying his gymnastics classes.  He has two more sessions left.  Last week they climbed the rope and he did a great job!

I'm not sure why I never posted Easter basket and egg hunt pictures from my other camera, but here is a picture from my parent's house that I had on my little camera.  (Bryce enjoys dressing himself in every shade of blue, ha!)

We went to a local outdoor mall today for a Mommy & Me event and Rodney Ram was there.  Bryce loves him on tv and in books.

He does NOT love him in person!  I'm sure this is a glimpse into our Disney World trip this summer.  Hopefully he will warm up to Mickey!

Bryce enjoyed the Easter photo shoot!

This is the best I got of Emmy in her Easter outfit.

Happy Easter!
