The 52 Project/Week 19

So, mommy has had a really packed schedule and dropped off on her weekly photo shoot.  However, I recently cleaned off all of the pictures from my cell phone and had so much fun seeing all of the cute pictures that I had forgotten about on there!  This post has a few of my oldie but goodie favorites from the cell phone!

The 52 Project/Week 15

This week Dada played in a disc golf tournament over the weekend, so we hung out with Nana and Papa.  On Saturday we went to a “Touch a Truck” event and Farmer’s Market in Johns Creek and had a blast!  There were trucks, but even though you LOVE trucks when you are with me in the car, you were both a little overwhelmed when we got up close to the trucks.  Avett, we barely got you to hang out in this Bobcat…you actually tried to crawl out right away!IMG_3110

King of Pops (the most amazing popsicles ever) had a stand at the Farmer’s Market, so we got an assortment of pops for everyone to try.  They were a hit!

IMG_3114IMG_3115

There was some live music, so both of you showed us your best moves…Cody, you had a blast dancing with Becky Bosselman, one of our good family friends! Cody Dancing-1

IMG_3116 IMG_3118 IMG_3119 IMG_3120

Avett and Papa had some bonding time while listening to the music.  PapaIMG_3122 IMG_3123

After all that dancing you needed a snack and took a break for some “Tummy Bunnies” (aka Annie’s Organic gummy bunnies).  These “tummy bunnies” cure everything that ails you right now.  : )

There were beaded necklaces tied around the balloons to keep them held down as a weight and you loved them Cody.  IMG_3130 IMG_3138 IMG_3142 IMG_3157

After the “Touch a Truck” event we went to Nana & Papa’s for a nap.  You guys were worn out and took an almost 4 hour nap!  While you slept Mama and Nana made some Queso (your FAVORITE) from scratch!  We got some cute little star shaped cracker and cut out a tortilla into the shape of a moon.  You loved it!IMG_3161  Avett loved the star shaped crackers!IMG_3172 IMG_3175

Cody and Queso

IMG_3179 IMG_3180 IMG_3181 IMG_3184 Avett, you had a bad case of Queso Face at the end of this!!!IMG_3185

Cody, it is frightening to think of all the things you are going to get away with in life by using the sweet face.  : )

IMG_3186Our favorite part of the evening was seeing you guys enjoying a little whipped cream from the can.  : )

The 52 Project/Week 14

Every day both of you do little things that crack Mama and Dada up!  Mama is trying to catch all of those little moments so we always remember them.  Cody, this week you helped mama while I worked!  You told me, “I push this button…and now I’m pushing these buttons REALLY FAST!” I was so glad you you were there to help me in the office!IMG_20140831_095440_796_1

Avett, for a few weeks now you have been obsessed with Dada’s coffee cup…so obsessed that you decided to take it to bed with you.  Here you are on the monitor asleep cuddled up with Dada’s coffee cup.  There was no getting that cup away from you at bedtime!  : )

IMG_20140829_224317_878_1

Love you guys!

The 52 Project/Week 12

Cody wanted to work with Play Dough today, so we busted out the Play Dough kit that our friend Jaimee Diller got you for your birthday and started creating!IMG_2886 IMG_2890 IMG_2891 IMG_2893 When I asked what animal you wanted to make you said a monkey (like Curious George, your favorite), so we worked together on making a play dough monkey…IMG_2894 IMG_2895 Avett, you came over and made your best monkey noises when you saw our monkey!  Oooh ooh oooh!  Ah ah ah ah!!!!IMG_2896 IMG_2897 IMG_2898 Sweet Frei watched from the sidelines while lying on the Curious George quilt.  : )IMG_2901 And Finn didn’t want to be left out of the Play Dough fun!IMG_2902 IMG_2903 IMG_2904  IMG_2907IMG_2916 Avett, you spent a lot of time working on your cutting skills with the scissors…IMG_2915 IMG_2905  While Cody, you worked on using the different shaped cookie cutters…IMG_2919 IMG_2920 Avett, you then wanted to work on rolling the Play Dough to make snakes…IMG_2917  IMG_2924Another fun morning activity with both of you!  I love these simple mornings with you.  : )

The 52 Project/Week 11

Introducing the Meow Meow!!!!  IMG_2838

 

This week we adopted Finn, a sweet and spunky little Maine Coon mix kitty cat.  You have both been chasing Finn around yelling “Maow Maow!!!!  Hold it!!!  Hold it!!!”.  Luckily Finn is not easily spooked by either of you or the two dogs (Charlie and Frei).  Finn is very interested in everything you guys are doing…in the picture above Cody, you were “cooking” for Finn.  Avett, you have been so excited to have a kitty…you giggle hysterically every time I put Finn in your lap and lean over to give Finn kisses every chance you get.  Absolutely precious!

The 52 Project/Week 10

One of your favorite activities right now is playing in the water.  Outside, in the sink, in the tub….doesn’t matter.  You just LOVE playing in water.  You will spend hours pouring water from one cup into another…from a pitcher into a bowl…from the bowl back into the cup.  Cody, you will gather up several items and say, “Wash hands!  Wash hands!” and are wanting to go to the hallway bathroom and just let the water from the sink fill up your containers so you can pour them from one thing to another.  Today I let you pull up your chairs to the kitchen sink and just let you play while I got dinner together!  As usual, Avett, you wanted to be in your diaper only… naked baby time is the best time!

The 52 Project/Week 8

Tonight we decided to try a new craft activity from our favorite art blog The Artful Parent. We have gotten so many great ideas of crafty things to do around the house from this blog and couldn’t wait to try the shaving cream marbling activity!  It started out a very neat and tidy affair…and quickly we were all covered in colored shaving cream.  : )

IMG_2320 IMG_2321First we gave our aluminum pans a good layer of shaving cream…IMG_2322IMG_2323Then we squirted paint into the shaving cream and used craft sticks to swirl it around to make cool marbling patterns!IMG_2393IMG_2324 IMG_2325IMG_2333Once we had a cool pattern then we would press paper or paper plates into the colored  shaving cream mixture and scrape off the excess with a craft stick.  Then we played in the water bowl to wash off our hands!  The water bowl was as much fun as the painting activity for you two!IMG_2334Both of you had fun feeling the shaving cream and playing with it!IMG_2355IMG_2356 Soon everyone was covered in shaving cream!  Even Dada!IMG_2366 IMG_2384 IMG_2369 IMG_2380 IMG_2381 IMG_2378

Next we just painted onto plates for a while…Cody you LOVE to paint.  You will often wake up from a nap and just start asking to paint.  I think we need to get you into some art classes soon! One of your favorite things to do right now is paint your hand and make handprints…

Our plan is to use the paper plates to make butterflies, so hopefully we can get to that in a few days.  Love you guys!
