my little sugar

Sweet Beckett is almost one! I can not believe it. When Zoe was this age I was about 16 weeks pregnant with this guy. Yikes! Beckett has finally started crawling on all fours, though he only does it half way to his destination then switches back to army crawling. He is cruising on all the furniture but isn't nearly as sure-footed as Zoe was so he loses his balance and trips himself up a lot. The boy is fearless. He loves to play with Zoe and Rhys and is still a mama's boy. He is drinking from a sippy and still gets his bottle three times a day. I quit BFing him around 9.5 months so he's all formula now, with occasional cow's milk. He's about 60% for height and weight as of his last checkup, which surprises me because he seems so huge. We are still waiting on teeth because he has none at this point. Rhys and Zoe both had teeth by 8 months if I remember correctly. It looks like B's getting the top/bottom front two all at once, they're right at the surface.

father's day

We spent father's day weekend at the lake with Cody's dad this year.  I'm sad to say that was the first time back to the lake since I was pregnant with R&B four years ago!  Circumstances have prevented us from going for one reason or another so we were very happy to be back on the water.  The kids loved it!

B didn't even make it out of the cove before he was sound asleep.

Rhys was loving driving the boat.  He kept saying "boat" and "water" when we were in the house.  I honestly didn't know those words were in his vocabulary.

Zoe loves her snacks! 

R&Z both love the water.  Zoe kept kick, kick, kicking and doing her "bubbles" like she does in swim class. 

This may have been the highlight for Rhys.  I'm not sure if he was completely scared or terrified.  Just kidding, he loved this too!  He really enjoys the racing games on his iPad and this was some real life action!

last day of school

Rhys is officially a ummm pre-Kindergartner instead of a pre-pre-Kindergartner.  I can not believe the year went by so quickly.  He is doing great things lately.  He knows so much that is just coming to the surface.  I guess he's been watching and paying close attention these last months because the boy is pretty sharp.  I am constantly amazed at what pops out of his mouth, thing that I had no idea he understood.  Last week he started saying "Nick", as in NickJr.  That is usually the channel on in the kids' play room.  There is a commercial in between shows that plays the little jingle and every single time Rhys says Nick in the appropriate spot.  Today while he was eating he pointed the the living room tv and said Nick, then later told Cody he wanted the tv remote.  Yes, he said remote.  He is doing great at producing new sounds on command.  Just a few short weeks ago this was very difficult for him.  We are so excited to see this progress. 

Rhys had an awards presentation at school the other day.  As you can see, Zoe made herself right at home with the rest of the class.

All the kids received an award for a character trait.  Rhys's award was for determination.

And just for fun...  big boy Beckett loves to play with Rhys and Zoe.  He's almost always right in the middle of the action.  He is still army crawling but is now pulling up to stand on everything.  He wants to be cruising so badly!
