theme: Growth

week of April 18th
I just kept thinking about Preston when I thought of Growth. He turns 2 years old in just a couple more weeks and since he is my last little baby it is definitely bittersweet. How do they go from teeny little babies to full-on little kids so quickly?!
2 years ago...
And now he has grown up SO much!

Theme: Work

Week of April 11th
I've really been slacking with these weekly challenges that seemed like such a good idea in January :-). The week this topic came up I had decided to try and sell some of my youngest child's clothes on Ebay (to give me an excuse to shop for more :-), so I was busy organizing, ironing, and photographing items for my listings. Since that was most definitely " work"  I think it fits in this category! Here are a couple of the pictures of some of my favorite items...his cute shoes!

Theme: Excitement

Week of April 4th
These pictures aren't spectacular, but they do capture PURE excitement! Over the past few weeks we have been "growing" butterflies and all three of my kiddos have loved every minute of it. We received 5 caterpillars in the mail and watched them grow and turn into chrysalides. After waiting about 5 days, they started to emerge as butterflies and a lot of time was spent watching them and picking flowers and leaves for them. We admired them for a few days before releasing them this week. It took some time for each one to make it up to the top and then fly away, but the amazement and excitement on the kids' faces when they did was priceless!
I wasn't quite ready and wish I hadn't cut Addie out of the picture a little!
