Ez's new swing

Ezekiel loves his new swing that Nana bought him.

It plays music and rocks him to sleep. And of course Zion loves pushing him in it.

She sat in it today while he wasn't in it and it almost broke, luckily it didn't.

Mom came to visit!

Mom came to visit over the weekend!!! We had a blast! I had missed her so much. But we had fun. She got to see her new lil' grandson EZ and spend some quality time with Zion as well. The last day we went to a park and took pictures.

Zion, Nana, and Ezekiel asleep on the side.

We met up with Steph and her lil' ones, Locke and Breckyn, on Monday and went shopping. Mom wanted the "Texas Grand kids" pictures taken. So we went to Kiddie Kandids. Oh my gosh! Trying to get 4 kids under 3 yrs. old to sit still for a picture isn't easy. That was a very exhausting, interesting day.

Mom, Steph and Breckyn....Zion and Locke were running around somewhere!

Lap time

I call this Lap time, Lunch and nap.

So I put Zion here to eat, then she was supposed to go take a nap..... I think she decided to do both at the same time.

A day in the life...

Wow! Me, a wife and a mother of not one, but two little tykes. It's crazy to think that I was once a baby like them and my mom woke up at all hours of the night taking care of me. I have really learned to love and appreciate my mom more by being a mom myself. I won't lie, being a mom isn't easy or always what we want or expect it to be. But it I would never trade it for the world. The joy and happiness you receive by being a mom is priceless.
Like last night for example. Ezekiel was awake, let's just say, most of the night. And Zion decided to wake up around 1 am and again at 6 am. So this morning I was overly tired and ornery from lack of sleep. I went to get Ezekiel to change his diaper. And Zion followed after me, then climbed up to peek at what mommy was doing. Then she said,with a look of disgust, "Ewwww.......dirty!" as I continued to change his messy diaper she repeated again and again, each time growing with more intensity and enthusiasm than the first. "Eeeewwww.....Dirty!" As if it was going to reach out and grab her. I couldn't help but laugh and right there and then my thoughts of ME were vanished.
It's the little things that they do that make me realize how blessed I am.

Zion and Ezekiel. She loves holding him. It's like he's her baby. She's very protective and aware of him. And she's such a big help to me.

Such a sweet little boy

Eric bought this shirt for Zion, she wears it well.
