A BIG Celebration Today!

Nope, I'm not talking about the Royal Wedding (although, I was up at 4 a.m. to watch it)....

Happy, happy birthday, Dad.  I hope you have a wonderful day.  Little Osita is SO excited to celebrate this day with you in San Antonio.  I know she will bring you so much joy on this special day.  We love you so very much!  Happy Birthday!

Easter Weekend!

I am reflecting on what an amazing gift God gave us this Easter weekend. He let his own son, Jesus Christ, die on a cross for our sins. What a humbling thought. This year, my first Easter as a parent, it really hit home even more so than ever before!

My family, aunt, uncle and cousins came to Dallas for the weekend and we had a big Easter celebration at our house on Sunday.  We enjoyed spending the day with both of our families together!  Here are some pictures of our little bunny from the weekend for your (or maybe just my own) enjoyment.

Waiting for some of my guests to arrive on Friday!

The Easter Bunny came early and dropped off a gift! OMG, I played with my water table all night! I couldn't get enough of all the splashing.

Easter morning...not so sure what all this stuff is.

 Part of our crew on Sunday morning! We were glad that Clayton came along with us.

 We had an early birthday celebration for my dad. Happy early Birthday, Dad! We love you!!

Grey cracking confetti eggs on himself. It was hysterical. He couldn't get enough of them. We had confetti EVERYWHERE but that's part of the celebration, right!

All the kiddos (minus the sleeping prince, Weston) before they hunted eggs. We were so excited to have Kiersten and Clayton in town this year.

Stay away from my eggs....

Holton found the golden egg this year! Sweet boy shared his eggs with Weston since he slept through the hunt. Such a great big brother!

Sutton and Krissy finding more eggs.

 The two loves of my life!

Our first Easter all together.

He has risen indeed!  I truly feel blessed. XOXO.

8 Months (plus 1 week and 2 days)

Better late than never!

I have to say that this is the most fun time right now!  Sutton is the light of our lives and is so much fun. Her little personality is just the cutest - she is quite serious but loves to laugh!  Here are a few things she has been up to:
*In the morning, she waits patiently for us to come get her out of her crib. She stands up and stares at the door. When you open the door, she throws you the BIGGEST smile. It's the best greeting ever! 
*She is a mover and a shaker!! She LOVES her music table.  She shakes her bottom to the music - it's hysterical.
*She loves to stand behind her walking dinosaur. She pops up quickly and is trying to walk. She has taken a couple of steps here and there but not walking quite yet.  She will definitely walk before she says momma or dadda.
*She is wearing 18 and 24 month clothes!
*She has 4 teeth - She just got her top 2. We are still working on finger foods. She is not a fan!
*She loves to snuggle after her last bottle. She is ready for bed and wants her lovin'. It's the sweetest time of day.
*We are on a roll with the earaches. :( Sutton just had her 4th one and had to get antibiotic shots since her little body became immune to the oral antibiotics. We have a ear check up this week but I have a feeling we are heading towards tubes very soon.

This little bunny is ready for Easter!!
