Date Night!

We've been realizing a lot lately that our boys LOVE to play with each other, but that at the same time they both really NEED time alone with mom and dad for all the attention to be on just them!

Last night Military Man and I took BooderBean to see his very first movie in the theatre and have a Date Night with mom and dad! He is a huge Cars fan so it was perfect for his first movie to be Cars 2!

He has been so excited for weeks, asking every day when the Cars movie was coming out! Finally it did and he was in hog heaven, I'm not sure if he was more excited to actually see the movie or to find out he would get to eat popcorn, drink a sprite, and eat all the candy he wanted!!

He wasn't a huge fan at all of the 3D glasses...he ended up only wearing them for the first 20 minutes then they were off!

We had so much fun, I love these special moments with our big boy! Can't wait till BrotherBean is old enough to appreciate Date Nights!
Disclaimer--this photo is horrible, i know!!! But it was the only pic i could get of all all three!

Pete and Repeat

Seriously "Pete and Repeat" live in my house.
Everything that big brother does, little brother has to do. It's the cutest thing! Little brother admires his big brother SO MUCH and wants to do everythign he does! If big brother is headbanging and dancing in the car-little brother starts in, when big brother makes a silly face to get a reaction out of mom and dad at the dinner table-little brother does the same, when big brother gets all the farm animals out of the toy box and makes a farm on mom and dads bed-little brother needs to be right there...and when big brother wanted to paint mommy a picture-
little brother decided he needed to experience his first painting session!

And when big brother decided it would be cool to eat your yogurt with your finger instead of a spoon-little brother did the same!

(i don't know why he wouldn't smile here, it was his idea for me to take a photo :))

Simple, Pure, Fun

Happy Fathers Day-yesterday!  

I will do a tribute to our dads post tomorrow, but for today i want to post about the simple pleasures in life that we have been experiencing the last few weeks.  All the summer fun memories of my childhood are flooding back as i sit back and watch my two cutie kiddos enjoying life in the summer sun!
First popsicle of the summer! First one ever for BrotherBean!

BrotherBean thinks the blue one looks better!

chunka chunka chunka!

Little BrotherBean is seriously a chunky monkey! From the day he was born we've all called him chunky monkey! Just 18 short months ago he was born to us weighing in at 9lbs 15oz and today he weighs in at 28lbs!
I'm finding that he isnt' able to wear all of my favorite hand-me-downs from big brother because he just doesn't fit. None of the cute shoes fit, the 18 month summer clothes look so tight over his little round budda belly, and those thunder thighs :) Oh man oh man he is a snugly chunky little boy! I don't know how many times my sister says to me "I just want to eat him up!"
it's fun to have a rolly polly of a baby :)
