a is for apple

We decided to kick off the fall season with a trip  to the sweetest Apple Orchard in St. Jo.   I have so many awesome memories of apple picking with my family and I wanted to make sure to continue that tradition. The kids loved picking the apples straight from the tree. Lincoln is such a picky eater and will only eat Granny Smith apples, but he tried everyone he picked. And by that I mean took a bite and then threw it in the bag. Hey, I'm just glad he tried something new. Hazel didn't quite have the muscle to pull the apples off the branch, but she had fun dragging the apple bag around like her purse.

Little Love

Hazel- "Bubba, I'm a princess."
Lincoln- (deep breath) " I know Hazel."

8 weeks

 I cannot believe I finally got a happy baby! I just assumed he would cry for 6 months straight and never sleep like the first two. But, no. This guy sleeps through the night and only cries during baths. He hates baths. He has the sweetest smile and the most laid back personality. He is one chill dude. 

Fourth of July

Just a bit late on posting, but happy 4th! We had such a  blast (get it, blast? Ha)  spending the morning at First Fridays and the evening with family. Hazel was terrified of fireworks, and I was terrified Lincoln would come running into the house black hawk down style. But, it ended up being perfect. 

Hazel Ally

She owns me. And the worst part is she totally knows it. 

Unity Village

 We always love visiting Unity Village at the beginning of spring. It is such a great place for the kids to run around. My favorite thing about visiting Unity Village is people watching! Tons of people get pictures taken for dances,weddings etc at Unity Village. Basically, everyone there is so happy or at least pretending to be. It's lovely. I have been noticing a lot of unpleasant people lately when we are out and about and I can't understand  why people just don't at least pretend to be happy. I mean, I feel like I do a decent job of being pleasant when we make it out of the house. People would not even know I spent my morning raking poop of my bathroom floor.

 Hazel turned two at the end of May, but we just now made it to her two year checkup.  Her charts show her  too underweight and too short. But, what they do not show is her amazing personality.  She has this sweet little voice and the way she speaks cracks me up. She does not reply with a yes or no. For example, if you ask her if she wants a glass of water, her response is "I do want a glass of water."   I constantly have people commenting on her everywhere we go. She is VERY serious and way beyond her years. She has the most perfect timing/voice with her humor, she can deliver a line like no other. I have never seen anything like it. She is also very moody. Boy, she can throw a fit! She LOVES to annoy Lincoln and really get him upset and then start screaming and crying once he cracks. I guess that is what little sisters are for.
