Evening of yard work

I'll start with the most real picture I've gotten of Drew since he was a baby. He usually has some cheesy smile or one that's fake. I don't know how I got it, but this is a real smile from my little man. Now, to the evening of yard work. Funny how something a simple as mowing the lawn can be so fun for kids. Everyone had to have their turn "helping" daddy.

While Drew waited his turn, he was searching for bugs.

Raegan, who is always camera ready, had to pose with her daddy for her turn around the front yard.

I wish I could say Raegan was searching for bugs, but since she is about as brave as her mama, she was picking out little weeds.

And she spent some time entertaining her baby sister.

Then it was Callie's turn around the yard. She seemed a bit nervous at first, but ended up enjoying it more than her siblings.

But she had the most fun chasing a tiny ant that was running around by her feet.
Yippy! We love being outside, no matter what we are doing.

Now I know...

Why they make swim diapers. Callie loves the water, and was wiggling to get into the pool. I just stuck her right in, diaper and all. Not a big deal right?
Not so much. I don't feel like these pictures do that giant diaper justice, but it was huge!

I guess they really are super absorbent.

Little miss Callie thinks she is big stuff now standing up with just one hand. It won't be long and she will be walking everywhere, not just crawling. I've heard it many times, and said I've said it before, but it just happens too fast. *sigh*

A whole hand!

My sweet Raegan turned 5 yesterday. Watching her grow and change over these last 5 years has been such a blessing.

From a cautious baby girl of 1To a spunky little 2A sassy 3An adventurous 4 To the independent 5 year old she is today. A little "spicy" personality, but a very tender heart. She tries to make us laugh with her knock knock jokes, and loves to give a performance. She can dress up and be super girly, or can dig in the dirt and get dirty. She is a wonderful helper and entertainer with baby Callie, and is always trying to teach Drew something new. HAPPY 5TH BIRTHDAY RAEGAN!!!

Another big milestone was that Callie turned 9 months yesterday.

She is saying bye-bye, da-da, and has learned to crawl.

What a sweet heart she is!

And so Drew wouldn't feel left out, here is a picture of the three musketeers.
