treasures

Photobucket
asher is learning to take a bottle like a champ thanks to the help of his brothers! yesterday he went for his 6 month check up and found that he is weighing in at 18lbs 12 ozs.
Photobucket
love that when i ask for a picture this smile comes out.
Photobucket
talk about pure excitement! logan and brayden are back from their family vacation and our boys are thrilled. they talked about logan and brayden all last week and it was a treat for us to see them. yay for friends! (please note that isaac's crocs are on the wrong feet. he is certain this is the right way to wear them.)
Photobucket
laura was housesitting for the carters and she invited a bunch of us over (thanks, laura!). isaac found this little treasure in the pool toy box. AMAZING!
Photobucket
i thought these mint thrills were gone. fortunately stew and i found them on the bottom shelf of the candy aisle... on sale! thanks to lisa for the introduction! she's the one that sent us two bags(that i ate in two days) before we could find them in CA.

weekend in review

Photobucket
one more weekend gone. how does that happen?? the boys were thrilled about riding the planes at legoland.
Photobucket
it was ryder's first time on the planes. he met the height requirement and was off and flying. look who's getting to be a big boy!! as ryder put it, "i just fly away."
Photobucket
this little love was content to just watch the big brothers play.

Photobucket
the kerkhoff family had stew's staff over for a fun little dinner. check out the dessert stacked! love that boys can turn anything into a building!
Photobucket
thrilled to celebrate shannon and john's engagement. shannon and i have been friends since we were 2 and it's a treat to share in their excitement. yes, these are the two largest wine bottles i have ever actually had a drink from.

Photobucket
congrats you two!

the good stuff

Photobucket
love that all the kids gather around my mom (she's just that good)so that this can happen...
Photobucket
Photobucket
no lie, i could not wake this child up! i set him on the counter and when i turned around this is what i saw.
Photobucket
one afternoon we hit up the spray ground. there is officially no more sandbox. we were a little disappointed, but quickly recovered when we realized the fun to be had with the buckets on our heads.
Photobucket
Photobucket
more time was spent running up and down the hill since there was no sand to mess with.
Photobucket
Photobucket
we have tried to introduce rice cereal. amazing how his gag reflex works just fine.
Photobucket
Photobucket
seriously, i can't get enough of goggles on kids! makes me smile every time!
Photobucket
baby finn watched the big kids play.
Photobucket
sweet taylor ann and sydney came over to play with the boys. let me just add that they showed up with lightening mcqueen cupcakes in hand. it was love! my boys had a blast and i enjoyed sitting down and catching up with their amazing mom. thank you!

he's back!

Photobucket
friday morning we had some time with friends and it was the perfect thing to distract us from the missing of daddy. (thanks for the photo, karen!)
Photobucket
stew returned friday and the boys were beyond thrilled. they have not wanted him out of their sight!
Photobucket
saturday we put isaac to bed early. it was perfect for stew and ryder to run an errand and stop for ice cream. ryder was in need of some alone time with daddy, many tears on friday to prove it.
Photobucket
this afternoon stew took isaac out for a little alone time while the younger two slept. they ran an errand and then stopped off for a treat at 7eleven, i even got a twix out of their trip. what can i say, we're a healthy family. slowly life is starting to feel a bit more back to "normal".

a surprisingly good week

this week actually flew by thanks to family and friends! i really appreciate everyone hanging out in the evenings(i realize my tube t.v. and lack of DVR is not ideal for the bachelorette), helping with my kids, giving me free time, and meeting us at the park. sunday we said a teary goodbye to stew and tomorrow we get him back! i am not sure who's more excited, me or the boys! i definitely can't wait for stew to be the one that gets up with the boys at 4:30 am(yes, you read that correctly)!! here's a peek at our week through my phone camera...
Photobucket
a little birthday celebration with lots of candy!
Photobucket
we came home to this sweetness!
Photobucket
almost ready for bed (i realize this one is not from my phone, but it works since i am not always a huge fan of rules).
Photobucket
we celebrated 6 months of our littlest love
Photobucket
grandma chris came over for a few hours. the boys were excited to give her the birthday cards they had made. happy birthday grandma chris!
Photobucket
my aunt bonnie came down thursday afternoon to spend the night and help me as we ran all over this town, meeting friends at the park, buying new toys at target and a quick drive by at swirls. once the boys were down i even got to go for a walk all by MYSELF!!
Photobucket
my aunt's friend grows all kinds of tomatoes. she sent down two huge bags for us and this is what we have left. ryder and i have been popping them like candy!
Photobucket
Photobucket
the last thing stew said to asher was, "don't you go and crawl while i am gone." and so asher didn't, but he did start hopping. we find him all over the place. not sure when he'll start to crawl(we're in NO RUSH!!) but it sure is funny to watch him hop around!

6 months of love

Photobucket
Photobucket
can you handle his cuteness?! yesterday marked 6 months of asher! he celebrated by showing us his first tooth(bottom left)! his dad celebrated by winning the belly flop competition at camp. asher is truly a third born, happiest when both brothers are close and giving him attention. life is crazy, but i seriously love it(no we are NOT planning to have a 4th for a long time)! i am pretty sure having our families so close helps make our life so much more enjoyable. it also doesn't hurt to be surrounded by friends in a similar stage of life. thank you all!

it's no wonder the third born is easy going. thank goodness asher is so big!

we're talkin' trash!

Photobucket
sunday afternoon we got to celebrate one of our favorite little friends, logan! karen(his mom) planned the coolest boy party. everything was themed around trash and trash trucks. it's no wonder the montgomery boys love the dasso boys so much! it was what logan wanted and what every little boy enjoyed. what a party!

karen is amazing with all the little fun details. i seriously don't know how she does it all! did i mention she's pregnant with their third little boy(all 3 years and under), due this fall?! please note the matching skirts... that detail was actually unplanned.
