Shepherd Says (vol. 1)

In the car the other day: “Mommy, be careful drive you car, Mommy. Be careful.”

Every morning: “See water heater? Sheppy wake up see water heater and washing machine? Washing machine broken? Repair man fix it?”

When he sees his brother first thing in the morning or after a nap: “Ohhhh, John Wywy!”

“No, you sing it!” whenever we ask him to sing a song he’d been singing.

“One…two…seven…”

“Honey bunches oats, Mama. Please, Mama. Me want eat honey bunches oats.”

“Drive to Home Depot? Drive Racecar at Hone Depot?”

“Me watch Mommy cook? Me help?”

“Mickey Mouse go night night with Sheppy? Big Fox go night night with Sheppy? Little (yil) Fox go night night?”

“Oh! Mama! Right ‘er (there!)” (Whenever he is pointing out something that I don’t see at first.)

“I yuv you, Mama, soooo much!”

Once More to the Bluebonnets

DK2A7603

Remember last year when I took Shepherd out to the bluebonnets for a few pictures? Thanks to the colder-than-average winter in Texas, I got to do it again over Easter, but this time with both boys! Babies who can’t sit up on their own look a little silly in pictures like this, but I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to have both Shepherd and Wilder in pictures. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

P.S. Here’s the link to Shepherd’s bluebonnet pictures at this time last year. I can’t believe how light his hair was!

Weekend Trip to McCook

Last weekend, we headed southwest for a weekend in McCook. Shannon, Aaron’s sister, and her husband Alex, were in from Germany, and we were excited to see them for the first time since their wedding in October.

The guys golfed, the ladies took the babies to feed the geese at a local park, and we all got to spend a really nice afternoon outside together. Aside from allergies that hit almost every one of us, it was a great weekend (even The Escape Plan was better than I thought it would be… maybe that’s not saying much, since I expected a no-star movie). Here are a few pictures…

Shep

It seemed like it went too fast (it always does!), but I’m so glad we could make the trip. It’s always so fun when family gets together.
