Spring has Sprung!

We're so excited about the long and mild days we've been blessed with lately. It seems like we have something fun planned for every weekend Mark is off. This weekend we're going to see Thomas the Train at the railroad museum. We get to ride a real train! I'm way more excited than Asher. I've been told the ride is beautiful in the springtime.

I just love this time of year! Here is a picture of some baby birds that just hatched by our backdoor. Their mommy made a nest in my hanging Southern Living bucket.

This is How We Roll!

Asher has finally graduated to a front facing carseat at the ripe age of 13 months and 4 days. Most babies are big enough at thier first birthday to have thier carseats turned around, but not our little guy. He really may be a few ounces shy yet of the 20 lb requirement, but he's so close it hurts. (There's no accurate way for me to check at home.) Rear facing was beginning to be very uncomfortable with his legs crunched up. Not to mention, staring at the back of a seat isn't exactly stimulating for an active boy like himself. We're so excited for him, and it's so fun to look back there and see his smiling face! It's a wonderful surprise everytime! (BTW, please note his thugaliciousness...sunglasses, flip phone, seersucker, AND being chofferred in his SUV.)
