We started off with our Saturday tradition heading to the Whole Foods Market. We needed a few things for the upcoming week and Slade enjoys hanging out in the buggy and munching on some yummy snacks! :) After about an hour of shopping it was time to head home for the fun part of putting everything up and Slade was ready for a nap. I did a few things around the house and once Slade woke up it was time to get ready and head to the Dekold's for a night of dinner & hanging out! The boys had so much fun playing and following each other around, it was so cute! :) The BEST part of the night was when it was time to go and we told Slade and Gavin to say bye ... they went and gave each other a hug! Awe! It was just precious.

It had been a long day ...

Slade also picked up a few new things over the weekend. He figured out how to open the safety locks on the cabinets. He is just too smart! Looks like we will be replacing them with the magnet locks! :) He also said "Yes sir" and "No mam" ... Wow, where does the time go! :)

Hello & Welcome!

Well, this is my first official blog! :)

January is flying by fast ... Slade is already 15 months and growing by the second. It is so amazing to watch how fast they learn. Just yesterday out of the blue Slade picked up 2 new words (Romo & Bubba). We have a fish that's in Slade's bathroom named Romo. Well, yesterday while at grandma's he pointed to my sisters fish and said "Romo". Too cute! :) Then while I was home for lunch we were playing on the floor with my little brother Alex who we call bubba and just plain as day Slade says "bubba". We couldn't believe it! I think Alex was on cloud 9! :) He said I've been waiting forever for this day. Ha!

Slade started Mothers Day Out this month and while I thought it would be hard for him, I think it was harder on me and my mom. He seems to be doing good and we will be trying the next class starting this week because of Slade's birthday he can stay down but since he is more advanced they think he will do better in the next class ... we will see! :)

Slade's 1st Day of Mother's Day Out! :)
