Yes, that would be a green tomato this little gardener picked this morning. He was very excited about his bounty until he took a little bite. :)
Crazy mint plant, growing like a weed!
This is my first summer trying to grow some veggies! We had a late start with the arrival of Reeve so I wasn't sure whether I would have any success. However, I have been pleasantly surprised with what we've cultivated. We have cucumbers, tomatoes, snap peas, lettuce, peppers and a few green beans. Also I have some herbs growing in the kitchen. I have hopes to make some homemade pesto soon.
I'm about a month late in posting these pictures but I wanted to share nonetheless! Let me just tell you a little bit about my mom. She is my hero. She is beautiful, intelligent, brave, funny, hard-working and overall amazing. You will never know how hard being a mom is until you are one and then you will have a new found respect for your own mother! I only have 2 kids and it is hard! I can't imagine having 4 like my mom & dad did! Crazy!
We went over to my mom & dad's place for a bbq and mom played with Jack in the pool while Reeve mostly slept. :) I am so grateful for my mom and for all she has done for me! Love you momma!
I've had a lot of people (including myself) ask if Reeve looks like Jack did when he was a baby. Below is the best comparison pictures I could find. Pretty close huh? Eyes/nose are slightly different. And yes, that would be the same outfit on the both of them. We have spent little to nothing on clothes for baby Reeve. He alas will have the curse of a younger/middle child, hand-me-downs for life. :)
This past weekend we were able to take a trip up to Suncadia to spend some time in the snow with the whole family! Jack LOVED the snow! He's definitely our little snow baby. This was the first time he really got to play in it and he just couldn't get enough. In fact he threw a fit every time we had to go inside. We had such a great time! Jack can't wait for his baby cousin Owen to start running around with him. For now he mainly ignored Owen and complained every time I tried to hold him. I guess that's a preview of what my life will be like in 3 months, yikes! All the pictures below are from my sister Audrey, she got some good ones!
Snow sliding. A new sport we discovered that Jack LOVES!
My adorable little man eating healthy. ::sigh:: I couldn't be prouder :)
Hanging out with Mom in the snow!
Fun times with Gma.
Another snow sliding shot.
All bundled up and ready to go!
Just the 3 of us (and 1 coming soon).
Jack and I. This picture cracks me up because I am down to my last jacket that will zip up over this belly!
