Photo Friday...

An adorable picture of Josh as a little boy...wasn't he cute???
Have a great weekend!!!

A big day for Andy!

Sunday, February 22nd was a big day for Andy! We started rice cereal and he took to it like he had been eating off a spoon for months! He even ate his entire bowl the second day he was offered the cereal!

Within half an hour of eating the cereal he decided he needed to roll over for the first time!!!

On Feb. 18th Andy had his four month check up. He weighed in at 15 lbs 13 ozs and was 26 1/2 inches long. Looks like we will have two tall boys!!!

Noah is doing pretty good. He had a yucky fever of 103.3 earlier in the week and is now battling a sore throat and cough...hopefully it will all pass prior to next week. He has a sedated echo scheduled for Tuesday to check his PDA (heart murmur). We just pray it has closed on its own and is of no concern!!!

DiSnEy wOrLd!

Our trip to Florida started with two sleepy boys and ended with a bunch of sleepy adults!!! I hope you enjoy A LOT of my favorite photos!!!

Noah's first encounter with Mickey Mouse. "Hi, Mickey!" he said. So sweet. He was so excited. We were at Downtown Disney on Saturday, 02/07.

Me and my boys. Gosh I love them.

Noah was so into that train! He kept saying "choo choo."
At first Noah was not a huge fan of the carousel.
Until Josh yelled "Go go, faster faster!" Noah thought that was lots of fun!

On Monday, 02/09, we arrived at Magic Kingdom just in time to see the parade! Our timing was perfect! Noah kept this look on his face throughout the whole parade.

Noah's first look at Cinderella's castle.

We had a few character meals and loved meeting
Pooh, Eeyore, Piglet, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy!

And almost every character meal ended like this...

Noah rode the teacups twice, once with Mama and Grampy and once with his NanaGranny!

He also drove the cars twice! He told us he drove Doc and yellow Queen...
(from the Disney movie Cars)
Noah really loves the movie Cars. At Hollywood Studios on 02/11 we were so excited to meet McQueen and TowMater (or as Noah says Queens and Mater). His facial expression barely changed. It was almost like he could not believe he was standing there with them! Notice we could not even get him to look at the camera for a picture!!!
My little Mouseketeer.
We got Andy a hat too. SO cute. But, he slept through A LOT of Disney and therefore did not get his photo taken with his! He was such a good traveler though and did enjoy a few parades and riding on Mama in the Bjorn for most of the days!

On our last day at Disney my Dad and Noah were lucky to find themselves in the perfect spot for the parade. Noah really got into it, got high fives from the people in the parade and clapped and danced!
Need I say more?
I cannot begin to say how much I love Disney. Can I live there? Puh-lease! I LOVED it. It truly is Magical. My Mom kept asking me "Are you having a MaGiCal day?" I could have shouted from the rooftops, "YES!!

Celebration! The start of our trip to Orlando!

Meredith and Ryan got married!!

Here I am with the beautiful bride! She looked gorgeous!!!! Every detail was so beautiful! We had the best time and I LOVED being included in their day!
Here I am with my boys at Paradise Cove in Orlando, Florida...
right where Mer and Ryan said their "I Do's!" My Mom and Dad!
Thank you both for such an amazing trip! I so enjoyed being together and appreciated your help with N&A! I just love love love weddings. They just make me think about our wedding day and all the reasons I married Josh and all the reasons I would marry him again if I could.

**Meredith and Ryan, we hope you two have an amazing forever!!!**

# 34 and S'mores...

This past week the boys and I went to see Grandma Holt and my Dad came too! We had so much fun playing and visiting!!!!

Grandma's 34th great grandchild holding her hand for the first time!

We then went for a quick visit with Josh's folks. Noah ran around their house yelling "kitty kitty, mores kitty kitty!" He was definitely taken by their three cats!
We have been having fun this week - we even made s'mores! YUM.
We took Noah and Andy out to dinner. It was our first time out like that as a family of four!
Here are the boys as we headed out to dinner!

Have a great week!
