College Roommate Reunion

Matt's college roommate, Andy, who lives in Iowa came up for the weekend so a few of his roommates got together to hang out and catch up.  We played at a park in Edina for a few hours and then droveto St. Paul to the Nook for a great tasting burger.  yummy!  Perfect spot to bring kids, if you eat downstairs.  Nora loved looking at the bowling alley which was right there.

Meeting Baby Harper

Kirsten checking on the smoker

Nora finds crazy things to entertain herself in the car.  Here she drew all over her lips with a dry erase crayon.  She is fascinated with lipstick lately and I guess this is her way of showing me!

Papa and Grandma came to meet Harper and see the kids.  Here's Jackson and Papa Lee

Mommy and her kids and Kirsten and Harper

Add the grandmas

We finally got to meet my high school friends' baby, Harper, this week.  She is so cute and Nora loves saying 'baby harper'.  Harper looks like her daddy, Ross.  It is so fun to see my friend as a mommy.  We had a blast meeting Baby Harper and cannot wait to see her grow up.  Nora and Jackson and her will be best friends.

Wipe Pile

Nora is now starting to play around at naptime and bedtime.  This is a picture after she had been in her bedroom for 2 hours at night time.  She took out EVERY SINGLE WIPE and they lay in a pile on the floor.

Jacksons sweet sunglasses

Jackson's sweet sunglasses which were Nora's.  He has a tiny head but these make his head look even smaller. 

Golfer, Cryer, and Big Boy with Hat

It has been unseasonably warm here in MN.  We have been outside trying to take in all the sun and warmth. 
Nora practicing her golf game. 

She is trying to putt off the green chair.

We had to come outside and this is always the face I get.  So sad Nora!

Jackson LOVES being outside and crawls all over.  His poor knees are so scuffed up from crawling on them on the driveway.  Doesn't he look cute in his blue bucket hat.

Home Projects

We have done a bunch of house projects.  With the help of my dad, we installed wood laminate flooring in our main level, ripping out the carpet.  We put tile in our entry way thanks to the help of uncle Kyle.  We painted all our oak trim white.  I've been painting end tables and coffee tables and doors.  It is hard finding the time when you have a feisty 10 month old and a 2 year old getting into the paint or trying to touch the paint you just painted.  Slowly but surely the projects will get done.  We are lucky to have such handy people around us to help us.

10 months Old

Jackson is 10 months old.  He is feisty and moves everywhere.  Trying to sit him still for a photo is almost impossible. 

New Car Seat For Jackson

it makes him look so small

don't I look cute Mommy?

happy or sad?

We got Jackson's big boy carseat today in the mail.  We ordered it from and it is the same version as we got for Nora.  I took it out of box and Jackson climbed up in it.  I guess he is ready to be done with his cute elephant infant carrier.
