My new hobby...

I found a new hobby...I always have enjoyed baking, but this takes it to a whole new level. My good friend is having a baby so I wanted to make her a special cake for her shower. Of course I had to do a "test-run" as well....
It's a prego belly!

Her them is ladybugs for her little girl, so I made her prego belly cake to go with her theme. They turned out really cute and the fondant recipe I found is really good!

Jeremiah lost his first tooth at his wiffle ball game last night! It makes me so sad that he is growing up so fast....I blubbered in the kitchen after I tucked him in that night for a good twenty minutes :) He buddy got him in the mouth and his tooth fell right out -it was a little loose already- the tooth is still in the middle of the Round-up Arena somewhere.... I took this pic for him so I could post it and the Tooth Fairy could have proof that he really lost it...she was suppose to pay him last night, but she got a little overbooked so she's making her stop tonight!

Grammy came over tonight for a quick visit before she heads off on a trip for work for a whole week...LOVE YOU GRAMMY!

Well, obviously this is a picture of Judah, not Aaron...but, I had this tshirt that belonged to my brother and thought it would be fun to put Judah in it for a little photo-op.

I tried to get some pics of the kids as a group and this is how they turned out...crazy!

Alison loving on her little brother

We had a little playtime today, too...just me and the baby boy.

Judah is getting SO big! He had his 4 month check-up this week and tipped the scales at 18lbs, 14ozs! He is one very healthy boy! His new favorite things to do are grabbing the things that catch his eye, rolling over and sleeping on his stomach.

My Little Mama...

"My latest invention"..... these are often the words we hear out of Jeremiah's mouth. He is always coming up with some great scheme to catch something or build something or some trick he has just made up.
But today...Miss Alison came in the house and announced that she had something great to show me...."My holy pollies, Mom!" aka she had a rollie-pollie in her hand. She was calling it "Baby" and talking to it! Hilarious!
I got her a little baby food jar to keep him in and told her she needed to make sure she got him some food like leaves, dirt and twigs. She immediately took her "Baby" out and got him all set-up. She carried her jar around all afternoon and by the time dinner came, she had about 7 little "Holy-pollies"! She really wanted to play with them..."You want to play with them?" I asked. "Yes, Mom. They need me to hold them and play with them!"
She insisted that she couldn't play with them outside. So, being the creative mother that I am, I got out a clear 13x9 glass pan and set it on the table for her. She squealed with delight as we emptied her jar in the pan. "Hi Babies!" "Oh you are just so cute...my holy-pollies!" She played with them for about 30 minutes. She was so adorable and she played and played and played. She only had two fatalities...but other than that they all made it safely into their jar for bedtime.
Oh, and by the way...Jeremiah had to go out and get a holy-pollie for himself because it looked SO fun!
