Friday Fun Spot: Our First Vacation

Ruidoso, Our First Vacation

It’s been a heck of a week. I’m going on three weeks this Saturday of struggling with what I believe is mold allergies. I have a horrible cough that is keeping me up all night long. I’ve been exhausted yet can’t sleep, and that only leads to no energy during the day with the kids. … Continue reading

Friday Fun Spot: Favorite Musicians

Favorite Musicians at 22 months

What can I say? My kids like Elvis and Iggy Pop. I like how they finish each other’s answers.

Friday Fun Spot: For the Love of Bots

At some point Charles found a video on youtube of a robot name Nao. It was their first introduction to videos and robots. Ever since then, they’ve been hooked on both. So when Charles went to Anna’s Toy Depot (our favorite toy store) to get them a gift, he couldn’t resist the robot he found … Continue reading

Friday Fun Spot: 4th of July Fireworks

4th of July Poppers

We did minimal fireworks with the kids this year: snap poppers, sparklers, and tanks. Actually, Hudson and his buddy Baylor did snap poppers with Charles and that was about it. Ellisa wasn’t interested. She preferred going in and out of the house. Charles tried to get Hudson and Ellisa to do–or at least watch–the sparklers … Continue reading

Friday Fun Spot: Hudson Feeding Ellisa

Hudson Feeding Ellisa

Hudson knows exactly what I’m asking him to do, but he chooses to feed himself instead. I love it! Especially when he shares his chewed up food with Ellisa. As you can see, I have no issues with germs–sharing food and taking food off the floor. I know it’s gross but it’s too much work … Continue reading

Friday Fun Spot: Livin’ La Vida Pauly

Pauly Shore and Ricky Martin

Ellisa started saying “Whaaaaat?” one day. It really only lasted one day. Charles was brilliant by catching it on film. He started asking her funny questions just to hear her response of “Whaaaaat?” I apologize for any Ricky Martin or Pauly Shore fans. This was all in good humor. Charles taught the kids The Weasel, so … Continue reading

Friday Fun Spot: Ring Around the Rosy

Ring Around the Rosy

The kids call it “ashes” (it took quite awhile for me to figure out why they kept saying “asses”) and they love playing it together or with anyone that will join in. It’s so cute to watch them grab each others hands. Hudson likes falling down as soon as the song starts and Ellisa likes … Continue reading

Friday Fun Spot: Hudson Climbing

Hudson Climbing Couch

Hudson is all boy. He loves to climb. If I’m on the floor, I’m his playscape. If I’m not on the floor, he’ll traverse the furniture. Of course I think his gross motor skills are amazing, but I’m his momma. Early last month when I noticed it was a bit too quiet for comfort in … Continue reading

Friday Fun Spot: Naming the Purmas

Ellisa Looking at a Picture of her Grandparents

Since the Purma’s came to visit last week, I felt this was a good time to show this video. A wrap-up post about their visit to come soon! Lots of photos included (for those that have requested more photos). – – – – – – – – – – – – I couldn’t believe it … Continue reading

Friday Fun Spot: Hudson Jumps

Hudson Jumps

I never knew how funny it would be when my kids began to try to jump. It’s hilarious! You can tell in this video how Hudson thinks he’s jumping but all he is doing is lifting his body up (raising his arm) and then stepping down. A month later, he’s just about got it!
