Things I want to remember from this weekend:

walking to the new neighborhood pizza joint with our best buds
sneaking out to snag CFA for breaky with Solly & Ez Saturday AM
having every single door in the house open all weekend long 
nailing down travel plans for "Quarter Rico" 
snuggling baby Holden 
making progress on the white house 
showering my oldest best and her sweet new babe, della 
Mikey reading Moose (and then me) to sleep on the front screened in porch Sunday PM 

So many times this weekend Mikey & I stopped what we were doing to just soak it in. Being in our home, with the doors flung open, dancing in the (early) spring breezes. There's nothing better.

You three. I know I've said it before, but I'll say it again: you make me crazy and keep me sane at the same time. Our days are simple. I've loved being home in our white house with y'all lately. We're spending any warm days jumping on the trampoline and walking down to the "nature park" that's right up the street. We're having picnics and drawing ninja courses in the driveway. These are the best days, I'm sure of it. 

 My Mosie. You're incredibly smart. You love to learn. Right now you're into volcanoes, twisters, jumping on the trampoline, Ninja Warrior (always Ninja Warrior), and anything involving daddy. You can write the entire alphabet ("R" is my favorite), know characters on cartoons that I didn't now you knew, know mama's phone number (as does Solomon) and our address. 

Solly, my sweet, sweet Solly. Two is my favorite age on you. You're sweet, fun, spunky, taking so well, into anything Mosie is into and the sweetest big brother. You're actually also a wonderful little brother - helping Mosie, whenever he asks you to get something for him. You're super content to be by yourself but also love to play with your brothers. 

Ezra!! How are we a little over a month out from your first birthday!? You are the happiest baby around. You absolutely love Mosie and Solly. You wake up early with Solomon and are happy watching whatever show he chooses in the morning until Mama's had coffee. You're sleeping through the night for the most part (thank you child) and nap a couple of times a day. You love to be on the trampoline with the big boys & can hold your own when they get rowdy. You're a strong little guy. 

#martinbandofbrothers I love you. Plain & simple. Thank you for making our ordinary life an adventure, every single day.
