When Joel was hauling, Braxton thought it was great to ride in Daddy's truck!
Now with the mowing business, in the winter it's a perfect opportunity to go because Joel doesn't need to cut grass. Braxton can walk along and help pick up sticks and pinecones...and he thinks he is such a big helper! :) He wins the "grandmas' " hearts and sometimes ends up hangin' out with them while Joel works. And often comes home with something...one day it was a pair of gloves for him and Hailey, one day it was a "school book", another day it was sidewalk chalk etc.etc. Not sure what he's gonna say when summer hits, because then he won't be able to go along (unless I pack us all up and we go for the day) Maybe I'll just do that! I miss going to work with my man!
So while Braxton was off doing what he loves, we got out the butter and sugar and baked some cookies. I did it for her sake. It took alot of patience but it payed off to see the joy in her face! *note her small pile of m&ms beside the cookie bowl.* Every now and then she'd pick one up, pop it in her mouth and look at me and grin!
I asked her what she'd like for lunch. Her reply was, "cookies."
Of course you'd love cookies now wouldn't you!? :)
I have a hard time believing that our baby is 9 weeks old already! I had her in for her 2 month check up and she weighed 12.8 lbs! She is the fattest baby I've had yet! Roll-y fat! :) She got her shots and it broke my heart to hear her cry.I always dread the pain of the needle but I do it for their good, so hopefully someday they'll understand :) Joel went with me...but he didn't want to hold her during the shot! I told him "here I let you come along and you don't even want to do the dirty work!" Oh well :)
It was a fun day with my girls.
I missed my boy.
Tomorrow he's staying home :)
I can imagine he will beg to bake cookies.
That's just the kind of child he is :)
So long.Till next time.I'll try to show up here more often.
