Beginning of March

March 1 was absolutely beautiful so I took the boys outside and was able to snap some sweet pictures! They’re not perfect since it’s almost impossible to get a 22-month-old to sit still and look at the camera but they’re cute shots!

Sweet little Weston!

This little man is getting so big and I’m loving him more and more with each passing day!

Paxton loves, loves, loves being outside! This day he was playing with sticks!

Marching through the yard with a big stick!


They both look mean but they’re still cute!

Paxton enjoyed his very first strawberry smoothie on March 2 and I think this picture is evidence that he loved it! I am so thankful I took his shirt off because it was everywhere!!

On the 3rd, I got away for a few hours by myself and John David had the boys! He caught Paxton setting the table and serving dinner! So precious!

We finally got chickens on the 6th! We’ve been looking for buff orpingtons for weeks and weeks and weeks and finally found some about 30 minutes from our house! We’re all so excited!

Paxton checking out our new girls!!

Peeping into the chicken house!

Love this shot of these two!!

Playing in the Leaves

Friday night when daddy got home from work, he and Paxton went outside to play!! Paxton just loves playing with his daddy!! They gathered leaves up and had a blast with them!

Paxton had a wagon full of leaves!

Getting ready to attack daddy!

I adore this sweet little smile!
Leaf fight!

And after he was finished playing with the leaves, he found a stick! This child is always finding sticks!



Showing his stick to daddy {and daddy is attacking him with leaves!}


He sees something…It’s birds!!

We’re so blessed!




We had a low key Halloween! We had no parties, didn’t go trick or treating, we just hung out at home! Paxton did wear his new bumGenius 4.0 in Sassy! It’s a nice orange color, not quite a pumpkin color {or UT orange!} but it’s a beautiful color!


Our happy boy!!


Paxton did some dancing…this boy has moves!!


And we attempted to take pictures with his pumpkin but that didn’t go so well!!


He did have fun with his pumpkin!


He carried it all around and dropped it several times…thankfully not on his toes!




Our sweet, sweet boy!


Looks like he’s diaper-less!!


More heavy lifting!And a close up of his sweet little tongue!


Paxton’s Pumpkin Art


Last week while looking for a carving pumpkin, we decided to get Paxton a pumpkin to color on! Since he loves to color, we figured this would be so much fun for him. We stripped him down to his diaper, put him in the high chair and he was patiently waiting his pumpkin and colors!


His very own pumpkin to color {or cu-cu as he says!!}


He’s just a bit excited…about the colors!


Here he goes!

{So, we didn’t have any finger paint and figured markers would work pretty well. Unfortunately, we were wrong! The markers did color on the pumpkin but it didn’t really stay so it was a wet, smeary mess. But, the important thing is our little guy had a ton of fun! And we’re totally buying finger paints for next year!}


Paxton hasn’t had much experience with markers, he tried to taste the red one…looks like he’s wearing lipstick!


He really did a good job coloring the pumpkin!


And checking out the markers…and writing on himself!


Look at those messy hands!


How he managed this, not quite sure!


Sweet chubby toddler hands coloring!The finished product! Looks pretty good considering it was done by an 18 month old and the colors were smearing!

As soon as we finished, Paxton was given a bath where 95% of the marker came off {there was a little on his hands for a day or so} and the pumpkin was promptly washed of all the marker-y mess!

Even though it was messy, it was still a blast for him to color with markers on the pumpkin and we sure enjoyed watching him! Next year, though, finger paints!!


The Little Entertainer

Last week when I put Paxton in wool for the first time, I decided to snap some pictures. He wouldn’t stay still for a ‘normal’ shot but I ended up getting some quite humorous shots of him entertaining us!

{And unfortunately, the wool is not helping our super soaker! I’ve been on a quest for the perfect nighttime diaper for months…}

Watching a little TV and doing some dancing.

Sweet boy making music for mama and daddy!
His xylophone is one of his favorite toys! He plays with it everyday! {And I enjoy playing with it too!!}

He has his own key chain with some real keys and one of the key chains is a mini guitar that he loves. Here he is pretending to play!

And here he’s really getting into it!! Love this shot!!

Seriously, having an 18 month old is so much fun!!
