Visiting the New England Greats

In February we made a weekend visit to see my maternal grandparents in New Hampshire. It's about a seven and half hour drive and it was Everett's first long car ride. Prior to that the longest he had been in the car was about two hours. We weren't sure how he would do but he ended up doing pretty well. It helped that he was able to sit between his Uncle Marcus and Aunt Keandra who very happily kept him entertained. They did a great job too!

We survived the trip and made it for a laid back and relaxing weekend spent with my grandparents, uncle, aunt and cousins. We didn't do too much but we made sure to make homemade ice cream. This is a favorite childhood memory of mine. Growing up this was something we always did when we visited my grandparents and even now is something I really look forward to and enjoy. There is nothing better than homemade ice cream, specifically, my grandparent's cherry vanilla ice cream. This time Everett got to get in on the action.

Crawling Schmalling

This little stinker is on a mission to walk! He has never enjoyed belly time, couldn't care less about crawling and at seven months still has yet to even roll over. But he can for a few minutes hold on to a table or other object and hold himself up without help and loves to walk with some helping hands. My parents gave him a walker for Christmas and he has now discovered how to "walk" in it. It took a little while of videoing him but I was able to catch it on tape.

It takes him a few seconds to figure out but once he did he was loving it. He is now going crazy though he needs me to back him up. We have carpet through out our house so he only has a small area of hard surface to walk on. He is loving it though!

A Day of Love - Valentine's Day 2014

Growing up my favorite holiday was Valentine's Day. Not because I had a boyfriend or was caught up in the romance of it all but because my mom made it so very special. She would decorate the table, make a nice meal and give each of us a small gift and a card. I loved this holiday because I felt so loved and special and it was all about returning that love. It was the same way for Dustin growing up. So it was definitely a holiday that I wanted to claim as our own and continue on the tradition in our own little family.

Everett's 6 Month Pictures

This past weekend Dustin took Everett's six month pictures. We wanted to keep the poses simple so he shot some in our bedroom on our bed and a few in Everett's bedroom. Since it was close to his eating and nap time, we had to move fast. I think they turned out pretty well! 

One of my favorites

Everett's Big News

The last post was all about catching up on the past few months of Everett's life. And while he has definitely been a busy boy I neglected to mention the biggest event that has occurred in his little life. Our little man discovered that he is going to be a big brother!
