Nathan and Jo Jo

Nathan recently spent the weekend at Grammy's house with two of his favorite cousins, Ri Ri (Riley) and Jo Jo (Joley, not to be confused with the original Jo Jo, his best buddy, Jovie, or his aunt Jo, in the singular form). Joley and Nathan have become pretty close and I just wanted to share a few of these precious pictures with everyone. They just fit too cute in the chair together and they giggled way too much for me to ignore. Although Nathan outweighs Joley by about 12 pounds now, she is almost an entire year older than him and she still tries her best to baby him. As evidenced by giving him a paci and making him giggle like crazy. They even rounded out the weekend by helping Grammy with a few of her chores. Aren't they cuties??

Be mine?

Nathan's second official Valentine's Day was a pretty special one this year. His new toddler class at day care celebrated with a fun party, complete with decorated paper sacks to collect valentines. Nathan took cute animal valentines with suckers attached and made sure to give the super sweet ones to the cuties in his class. As he is one of only three boys in a 12-kid class, he has his pick of the ladies. Anyway, he enjoyed his snacks at the party, even if his BFF (the other Nathan) tried to force feed him Cheez-its. I think he had an even better time when we made it home and I let him go through the loot. Over the past few weeks, we have really discovered Nathan's love of all things candy and all things chocolate. He even stole my chocolates and tried to pry them open, as shown in the picture. Hope your Valentine's Day was just as sweet! :)

Sorry I've gone without a post for so long, I'm still getting adjusted to this multi-faceted life of being a mama, a wife, a journalist and now a graduate student. Between working all day and doing homework all day when I'm not at work, I'm pretty swamped, but it looks like I'm almost done for the weekend so I thought I'd share some recent pictures. These are from a trip to Hope last weekend in which Grammy and Poppy came with us. We enjoyed the beautiful weather and played outside quite a bit. Enjoy the photos and have a happy Sunday!
