Mirrors and Melllllon!

Drake and Caden are so adorable! Drake is getting a lot more active now. He loves grabbing everything in his reach and is trying desperately to get the things that are not in his reach. He can roll from his tummy to his back but he has only gone the other way a couple of times. He loves when I sing to him! It can be anything and he will just smile and coo! I love it! He's also been loving this baby mirror that I got on clearance for 3 dollars!

Caden is so active but in a good way. He is still very much in to cars, in fact they still take up 90 percent of his playtime. He love to eat fruit especially melons. I get a new one every time we go shopping and have it cut up in the fridge. We he wants some he goes to the kitchen gate and says "Mellllon". It's adorable. In the past three weeks he has eaten and entire Honeydew, Cantaloupe and Watermelon. I'm struggling to get him to eat Veggies so if any one has tips on that PLEASE tell me. The only way I get him to eat them is if I put them in something else like peas in scrambled eggs or blended spinach in fresh apple juice. It's hard because most of what me and Nate eat are vegetables.
Caden lined up all of his cars in front of Drake and then started driving them on his head:)
I'm doing really great. I've done a couple of little projects lately that I will post about in my "DIY" post, coming soon to a blog near you. I've also been really watching what I'm eating and trying to get my body back in shape before I get pregnant again. I am now 6 pounds lighter then when I got pregnant with Caden but as all mothers know my body looks nothing like it did back then:) I'm trying to tone up so that I can at least resemble my old self. I'm also excited because in two weeks I get to go see all of my family in Az. None of them have met Drake so that will be great.

Nate is doing great. Work has it's ups and down but at the end of each pay period it all seems to work out which is a wonderful blessing. We thought he would be back to riding his bike by now but the weather is just silly! We are still waiting for warm sunny days. He's also been loving our PS3. Him and some guys from work play online together and he has a lot of fun.

I can't wait to see the projects you've been doing.

Oh, the veggie drama. We do the weirdest things to get our kids to eat their veggies. Except for Cookie, that girls eats almost every veggie and I love it.

You have such a cute family! One day the packer boys are going to take over the world...!

btw: Good luck with the FHE. I know one day our kids will thank us and think of how "important" and "beneficial" it really is and then the mommy inside us will scream WAHOO!!
