Instagrams from last week

Wow... I did a lot on Instagram last week. Here are the pictures that some of you missed since you aren't on Instagram (yet) ;)

Dave is awesome at getting Veda to sleep at church. Me- not so awesome at it.

My parents are AWESOME. They send me fudge in the mail from places they go on vacation. It's the best.
 Veda finally got to play with play doh with the big kids. she didn't even very much of it ;)

 Picking the chocolate chips out of their pancakes.

 (I know- he needs a boy hat). But look how cute they are holding hands.
 Daddy's old Mico-machines.
I ran 8 miles!!!

 What's on your face??!
Hendrix's hair is finally long enough to spike up again.
 Dave and I went on a date downtown last weekend.

Boxes and shoes

Here's what the other kiddos have been up to.

Hendrix got some new shoes. (Not that he needs anything to make him run faster. He's already plenty fast). But they were darling, and $2.86 at the GAP. I know, I know... go get some.
 Hendrix got a new carseat in the mail. The boxes brought my kids lots of joy.

 This is a movie theater. See that puzzle back leaning against that box? That's the movie- who needs real shows when you have a box and a puzzle? :)

17 months

It's crazy how many more pictures I get of Veda than the other kids. She is by far the most cooperative when I bust out the camera. But Veda has been quite the character lately, so she kinda needs me to take her picture a bunch since she is doing so many cute silly new things. Here's what she's up to at her amazing 17 months of life.

The Learning Tower stool is her favorite place to stand. She is up on it a lot lately. Pulling everything off the counter that she can or coloring on all my important papers. All while looking as innocent as possible.
 She loves to wear Quinn's stuff. More specially Quinn's swimsuits-- over her head.
 More swimsuits- and shoes.
 Or wings around her neck. That's exactly how they go.
 She is starting to hold her own with the other kids. She can climb up to the kitchen table no problem (I find her on top of the table more than I would like to admit). And when she gets frustrated poor little Hendrix is the receiver of most of her bites.
 She LOVES babies right now. She's always holding them and hugging them and giving them kisses.
 Ready to go to the store!
She is a great sleeper- but having a hard time adjusting to one nap. She refuses to sleep in the morning most days-- even though she acts like she needs a nap.
She's still nursing- 4 times a day.
Loves the pool- but hates to be held in the water. So it's tricky at the pool-- thank goodness for the baby pool where she can walk on her own.
Thinks daddy and Hendrix are the coolest people ever.
Climbs on everything. She can even get up on my bathroom counter. Stinker.
Wears 18-24 month clothes (just in case any of you wanted to send her some cute new clothes)
One more month until she has to go to nursery at church. (not really something I look forward to)
Is just about the sweetest, cutest, most lovable little baby on the planet and we love her to pieces!

I'm feeling especially grateful for my darling children. 
Hendrix gave us quite the scare yesterday. 
I won't go into details here on the blog, but lets just say it involved Hendrix running off. 
Me panicking (of course) and screaming his name and not knowing where he was.  
And Hendrix being found by a police officer. 
It wasn't long, thank heavens. 
But maybe the most scary 10 minutes of my life. 
I'm grateful that prayers are answered.

This week on Instagram

My week on Instagram

our week in pictures

Lot of catching up to do with pictures. Veda seems to be the easiest to catch a picture of- so there's lots of her and some other things we've been up to.

This is a road leading to our subdivision. Look how pretty! We've had a lot of rain so everything is green and beautiful. Plus the puffy white clouds. :)
 Worms are fascinating.

 some 'teeth' we had for dinner one night.
 me and Veda at Monument Cafe on a lunch date with daddy
 My next door neighbor found some brand new kittens in his yard. They were darling little things.

Reading books with two babies

 I got a haircut this week. This is what I got when I asked Dave to take a picture of my hair.
 This lizard was on our window last night. I hope he was outside eating lots of grosser things.
 Look how great Dave's legs look in a speedo. :)
 My cute girls playing
 Have any of you had these ice cream sandwiches from Costco? They are amazing. Like a 9 on a scale of 1 to 10.
 More of me and my side kick
