• Took his first car trip to Indiana to visit his Nana and Pa.
• Loved swinging at the park for the first time.

• Loves to climb up on the end table.
• Had his first fall off of the end table
• Missed his first Easter at church because he was sick with an ear infection.
• Smiles all the time.
• Went swimming for the first time at Nanny and Poppy's pool.

Sweet Sibling Love

1 Peter 4:8 Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.

These two have such a sweet love. I can't even begin to explain the way their love is. The other day Korbin was getting told "no" for the first time and I thought Addyson was going to break out in tears. She was so upset that her brother was being told not to do something. She said "Mommy don't tell him no he is just a baby." I explained to her that Korbin needs to start hearing "no" so he can learn the meaning just like we did to her when she was a baby. She still was not to happy about the whole situation. I have been thinking about this all week and isn't that just like God he will tell us "no" because he loves us just like our parents telling us "no." As our Heavenly father He knows whats best for us in our lives. If we would just listen to Him our life would be in the center of His will, right where it is suppose to be! I needed this lesson so bad this week.

I think Addyson would rather it be her being told "no" then Korbin!! Now that is a great big sister if you ask me : ) I hope that these two have a love like this for as long as they are alive.
I know that one day I will be hearing her say Mom he won't get out of my room, he's touching me, and he is not sharing... But for now I am going to just enjoy the moment of this sweet love these two have.

Strawberry Pickin

We have had such a great Saturday. Korbin slept in this morning and that never happens so today I was so thankful for a little extra sleep. It was much needed. Addy has been looking forward all week to going strawberry pickin. So this morning we went to a little restaurant on the way to the strawberry patch that has a better than Cracker Barrel breakfast. I know that is crazy hard to believe but it was delicious!! We then went to pick strawberries at the farm down the road. Jimmy and I picked about 2 buckets full of berries while Addy ate berries and Korbin slept in the Ergo. I just have to say that I got a great workout wearing an almost 18 pound baby and squating to pick berries. The berries just melt in your mouth and are so addicting! While I was putting them up I could not stop eating them. I think the majority of them ended up in Addy and my tummy!

After berry pickin we came home and got a few things done around the house. We had our own little Cinco De Mayo celebration with fajitas, homemade guacamole and salsa. Addyson said that is was even better then our favorite Mexican restaurant so I guess it was a hit !

We have had such a fun day today with our sweet babies! Love spending time with them and making memories like these.

Korbin is Crawling

Our sweet baby boy is CRAWLING !! I cannot believe it! I keep saying he shouldn't be doing this already he is only 6 months ! I do not know why I am surprised these two never cease to amaze me! He tries so hard to keep up with his big sister. He despises when Addyson or Mommy leaves the room so the other day while the both of us were in the kitchen I was helping Addy fix her snack and I turned around and there was Korbin with a sweet grin on his face ! He had crawled all the way from the living room ( in the middle of the rug) to the kitchen. If you have ever been to our house this is quite a long way for a 6 month old. Ever since then he has been all over the place. My floors are a big sticky mess because everywhere he crawls he has to leave a huge puddle of spit up to let everyone know where he has been ; ) Today he climbed underneath the end table and left a nice puddle under there also! I can't believe how big he is getting! Time sure does fly by when you are having fun !
