Update on the kiddos

These little ones are growing up quickly! Here's a little update through the iphone.

Bella took her first selfie. I love this picture!
JT took his cars and went to the door. I asked where he was going and he said "I go to Granddad's house". awwww!
I love when they want to cuddle on the couch with me after school. I can't wait for summer when this is what we do every day after nap time.
JT likes to eat. A lot. At a time. He demolished 3 chocolate chip pancakes. And this was before he had some eggs. Lawd help us when he becomes a teenager.
One of my favorite times of the day is reading after a bath. We had a rare quiet moment when both kids wanted to just sit and read and cuddle. So we both obliged!

"Momma, I picked you a fower". Oh my goodness, y'all! He's so sweet.

North Carolina has beautiful spring time weather. And we have been enjoying a lot of it. The kids like to pick every flower/weed in the backyard and bring it to us. It's hard not to keep them all. Hi, I"m Emily and I'm a hoarder of weeds my kids pick for me.

The kids also like to help me water the garden or, in Jonathan's case, the brick and cars and hose and himself and Bella and his shoes and the flowers and Bella again and his head...

Sweet Bella has been working out with me in the morning time. And she likes to wear her hair like I do. Doesn't she look 15 in this picture?
Told you reading was one of my favorite times!

And last but not least, the kiddos
 called Grammy and Pawpaw on their "phones". They sat there for a long time telling them about their days and what they were doing. This is a shameless plug to see Grammy and PawPaw soon. =)

Bella update

This little gal is a beautiful 5 year old girl. Full of  joy and tenacity and inquisitiveness and laughter. I tell her everyday I'm so thankful to be her Momma. Now she knows I'm about to say it and will say, "I know I know I know". ha! But I keep telling her.

This little gal still loves the outside. She picks every flower/weed she sees to give to me or her Daddy.
Y'all, look at that personality! She's becoming a champ on her scooter lately.
She rode in the car with the buckle like a "big girl" for the first time this week. She's definitely growing up!
Speaking of growing up, check on the adorable graduation outfit. I may have cried a little (ok, maybe a lot) when I got this picture in the mail. Be prepared for a sappy post around the time of her graduation. I warned you all!
