This is my blog where I will be trying to keep up with my goal of taking a picture a day and writing something small about it. I really want to do this so that I can capture the small everyday things in our life. It's these cute things about my kids and our daily life that I really want to remember.

Sometimes I have to just vacuum right around them and their toys in order to get some cleaning done. And other times I have to hold Saige while I vacuum which is definitely an arm workout!

Play & Nap

Nap time for one, Play time for the other. Colby going down for his nap today with all his stuff that he likes in bed with him (Woody, Jessie, both of their hats, night light, pillow pet, binky). Saige just woke up from a nap and was ready to play. Lately their nap schedules have been off. For a while they both were taking naps right at the same time. Now Saige is waking from her late morning nap when Colby is going down for his. Then Saige stays up and plays for a couple hours before taking her afternoon nap. I really like it this way because I get one on one time with each of them. It's nice to be able to focus on one child and what they want you to play with them.

"Yee-Haw Woof!!" Today Colby was putting Woody on Akira's back and saying yee-haw woof. Sometimes he calls her woof instead of using her name. This was seriously so cute.

Smoothies for Breakfast

I made some more "green" smoothies today. Except they are more purple than green. We all enjoyed it, even Saige. She actually really loved it and would get mad when I would take it from her so I could have some too. Colby has a nice little smoothie goatee going on! Today's smoothies had frozen mango, pineapple, strawberry, peach, blueberries, raspberries (that I picked in the summer!), a couple small oranges, a handful of spinach, and a little bit of water and juice.

My babies hanging out together. I'm always attempting to get a good picture of these two together and it is almost impossible. Colby has gotten better about being ok with me putting her next to him, but he either moves away, puts his hands in his mouth, or wont look at me. Saige is usually good, but now that she crawls she doesn't like to stay in one place. At least I was able to get this one which is good for the most part, minus Colby's hands in his mouth.

Sword Fight

Today we went to Target to get a few things. Mark saw these foam swords in the dollar section so we grabbed a couple. They are a hit with both kids. I just happened to get this cute pic of Saige hitting her dad on the head with the sword. So excited!

My View

This is my view everyday. The cutest little baby hanging on my legs begging me to pick her up. Now that she crawls/army crawls and pulls to stand she is always at my feet, pulling up, and wrapping her arms around my legs.

"I caught the cats tail!!" Luckily Butters is one of the most laid back cats ever.

I've started making cookies once a week since I've stopped buying packaged cookies and sweets from the store. This recipe is so good. The cookies stay nice and soft. It's from my awesome friend and former roommate Jenny. Colby constantly asks for cookies now. I think the first time I made them he ate at least three.

Mirror, Mirror

Colby was playing with this mirror today and showed Saige how to look at herself. They were having so much fun taking turns looking in the mirror and laughing.

Nice Kitties

When I saw these two snuggling close I had to get a picture for proof that they do actually like each other. (either that or the house was too cold) They rarely get this close to each other and if they do they are usually rough housing. Seeing them together reminded me of the first time I brought Butters home and Callie hated him, she hissed and ran after him when he tried to lay in her favorite spot.

Colby loves to copy his dad. Today Mark was reading and Colby went and got a book and snuggled himself right in. Too cute!

In her mouth

Saige loves to crawl around with small toys in her mouth. I feel like I'm constantly taking things out of her mouth. There are always smaller toys around because of Colby. It sure is funny to see her crawling (usually army crawling) with some little toy sticking out of her mouth. In this picture it's a Nerf dart.

Colby always wants to help feed Saige. Today she was eating yogurt and he was begging me to let him help. He's pretty good at getting it in her mouth, but he of course gets it all over her face and clothes. I think he really likes feeding her because then he can sneak a bite or two for himself!
