Easter weekend

We had so much fun with all our visiting family. Miles woke up to find his Easter basket full of books, a movie, a few toys, and some fun coloring books. We then got up and ate some Cinnamon rolls and had a fun Easter egg hunt with cousin Mya.

I planned it where each kiddo got a certain color so they would each get the same amount of eggs with the same toys inside. Mya was so cute. She would find a blue egg and yell, "Miles, right here Miles!!" It was really sweet to see them working together to find all the eggs. After they were all found, we sat on the porch and the kids opened all the eggs. Miles decided to eat every treat as he went along while Mya decided to put all her treats into a pile and open all eggs before deciding what she wanted to eat. 

Easter was so much fun. It was great to see my sisters and brothers (even if we were missing a few). Wish my dad and mom could have been there too, but they came up the day before. Having everyone over makes me realize how much I love having my family around. I miss hanging out with my sisters and having family for Miles to play with. 

Pregnancy Pics

My family visited for Easter this year and Shelbie took some great pics of us at a fun park close to our house. It was so fun and she took SO many good ones! I am 34 weeks here!

I feel like this pregnancy is going by so fast. I only have around 6 weeks left! I can't wait to meet little Logan.

Miles and the Rollie Pollies

So a super sweet friend brought us a baby gift that included a new bucket and book... So this is my quick story of my sweet Miles. 

After our friend left, he sat down with the book and had me read it to him. Them he told me we would read it again at bed. He said, "night-night book monny. Read book night-night." 

After that we went outside and he decided to fill the bucket with every rollie  Pollie he could find. He loves rollie pollies. They are one of the few bugs he likes to hold and play with. 

So he started with all the dead ones on the patio and then put each alive one he could find... And he might have made a few more dead ones in the process. 

After he couldn't find anymore, he tell me is the saddest voice, "roll pee mom". 

After a few minutes another one would pop up and he'd squeal, " more roll pees mom!! More!!!" 

Soon we had quite the bucket of prisoners.

After spending 45 minutes playing and collecting these guys, it was time for nap. I asked miles of we cold put the rollie pollies back in the grass so they could go home. 

Of course the answer was no. I then tried to barter for the release of the prisoners. A Popsicle? No. A snack? No. A cookie? .........yes. An M&M cookie was a price he was willing to accept. 

Miles, sadly saying goodbye to the rollie Pollie prisoners. 

Still feeling a bit sad, but at least he had his cookie to help dull the pain.

Baby shower

We had our baby shower last weekend and it was sooooo much fun! Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures but wanted to blog about it anyway.

We did a BBQ diaper party. We had a house full! I made potato salad, a veggie plate, watermelon, chips, chocolate cake balls and lemon cake balls, birthday cake rice crispie treats, and fruit salad. We also had burgers and sausages and hotdogs. Yum! The food was so great and we didn't even have leftovers! 

I decorated a bit with diapers by making a diaper wreath on the door and a diaper cake. My stepmom and sister surprised me with a diaper bouquet that was so cute! 

We all had so much fun visiting while all the kids played. Miles loved chasing all the kids and playing. He had a bit of trouble sharing all his stuff, but he enjoyed all the fun. 

After everyone left, we cleaned up. Thank goodness my sister and her boyfriend were here... They helped us and we cleaned up all the toys and stuff in 20 minutes. It was great. A great way to celebrate our newest baby coming. 

All the diapers and wipes we ended up with! People were so generous in helping to diaper baby Logan! I don't think we'll need to buy diapers for a long time. Thanks everyone!!
