First Home Depot for Baby

Baby has been trying to use a hammer the past few times we've been at Home Depot for building projects. When it was a race car in March, we decided it was time for him to get to build. So he got an apron and built his first project (with a lot of help of course). The older kids loved this project too - they had a race track to race the cars down after you built them and the boys had a lot of fun racing their cars with other kids. Princess loved holding her car more than racing it. She also was more creative with the stickers.
 It's really past time to stop calling my sweet youngest Baby I guess. He is very much a toddler. Have to work out a new nickname!

Breakfast eggs

I was going to make eggs for breakfast March first. But I went to take care of something and when I came back I found this:

Baby demonstrated his ability to climb up on a stool and get things off the counter. Isn't he adorable covered in egg? :D Side note from about two months later - what do you do when you are about to check out at the grocery store and catch your son holding an egg in his hand and when you put it back realize there are no longer a full dozen in the carton? How many eggs did he throw out of the cart without me seeing?

Say Cheese!

For your enjoyment, Princess taking pictures with a toy camera and general little kid cuteness at breakfast one morning.
Princess takes Baby's picture. He is smiling and saying "Cheese"

Now he smiles for my camera!

Perhaps she wasn't too happy I brought out my camera too.

Violin Trio

Back to catch up posts tomorrow, today I want to share my boys playing in a violin trio with their teacher this past Sunday at the church for which I am the pianist. I love listening to them practice, they are getting so good! They love to perform and were happy for the opportunity. Enjoy!

Princess Preschool

Princess participated in a preschool coop this year. This semester her group was all three year old girls. We had a lot of fun, it is very different with a bunch of girls instead of a bunch of boys. In February we did several things for the letter V. We mixed up a batch of saltdough and shaped it around a glass jar to make a volcano. Then we painted it and made it explode with baking soda and vinegar.
A real smile from my princess! These are rare in pictures lately.

Painting is very popular, we painted extra pictures too.

Ready to see the volcano explode!
Here are two short videos with the volcano lava. They loved it and we ended up doing lava in every color. This was very fun and brought up fun memories of doing this same thing with my older boys when they were little.

Baby's 3rd haircut

My baby boy needed another haircut in February. This time I bravely cut it myself with the haircut kit. He looks so different!
