Happy Mother's Day

Dear Mom, 

I want to be like you.  I want to always be willing to whip up cupcakes.

I want to let him be messy and not make perfection the goal. 


I want to make little moments into memories. 
I want to be like you.  

I want to be patient and always have time and full attention to give. 
 I want to be like you.

Trying out Occupations

What do you think suits him better ?

Clint the Rescue Ranger

Clint the Fun Bus Driver

I personally think he will become a dentist. He is obsessed with flossing and brushing his teeth. Not a bad thing but I am a little surprised by it. He just two years old!!

Sweatshirts and Blue Jeans!

I LOVE this time of year.  It's cool enough for sweatshirts and blue jeans but warm enough to be outside comfortable (no humidity).  Our boy loves it because he can runnnnnnnnnnnnnn!!  We are expecting Auntie Beth and Lee this weekend, plus Dan MIGHT be racing for the first time in over 10 years on Sunday.  I am hoping to make it out to Lampson Falls for a hike with my guys (& maybe Meme too) sometime on Saturday. By the way, Clint loves to clean up messes as you can see in the photo above.  According to Clint the gutters are a mess and needed to be cleaned LOL.

Have a great weekend everybody!!

Monkey See Monkey Do

We are really enjoying watching Clint grow and develop.  He loves to take showers "by himself" and he is really into shaving.  He practiced on himself first then "helped" Dada shave the next day. 

Clint is also becoming quite the little helper in the kitchen, but you have to be careful that what you are making actually gets to baking.  See photos below, he is helping Meme make bread. 
He calls my mom Meme because he couldn't say Grammie at first and it stuck.

Here is actual footage of him helping Meme

On our bucket list for the fall ... Watch Dada motocross race, take Clint hiking at Lampson Falls, visit the Goodwin's Orchard again for apple and pumpkin picking, and of course celebrate Clint turning two.  By the way he is a little over 30 lbs and has the vocabulary of a 3 year old.  Be careful what you say because it's definitely monkey see monkey do around here :)

Motorcycles, Musical Artist and More

It's been way too long since our last post.  But I have some really nice things to share with all of you.  We have been going full force into motorcycle mania.  Clint and Dan ride motorcycle morning and night while Dan tries to teach me to ride on the smallest bike on the planet.  Hey don't judge it is harder than it looks ;)  Below is a video of Clint and Dan the best part is towards the end around the 29-37sec mark.

Here is all of us riding together.

We now have a budding singer on our hands.  Every night before bedtime I sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star to my little peanut.  I had no idea he was really listening until I heard him singing it one day.  He just sings Twinkle Star, Twinkle Star but it just makes me melt into a puddle of love for this little man.  I wish I could upload the recording for you all to hear but I can't figure it out.

He is soooo busy and learning everything so fast.   Ok that is all for now, more next time!

18 Months

We can't believe he is already 18 months.  He had his 18 month wellness check up today.  He is still in the 75 percentile for height and weight at 32 3/4 " and  27lbs 14.8 oz. 

This was on his assessment sheet from Dr. T.

This is what the doctor's states ... This is the real deal
Runs awkwardly ... Runs everywhere
Able to throw objects ... You mean he can place items gently
Walks upstairs with help ... Walks upstairs & downstairs sometimes w/ help
Begins imaginary play ... Everything is some sort of tractor for riding on
Begins to kick and throw a ball ... This is only if he likes the ball [see video]

Here some recent photos and video courtesy of Grammie


  Thank you Clint and Dada for loving me.  I am so grateful and lucky!!
