Jungle Jims

Tate and I had such a blast at Jungle Jim's this morning. Tate was a little hesitant when it came to the rides, but all he needed to do was watch it once then he was good to go. He still is a little small to go on all the rides by himself so I was grateful that Grace and Chloe were there to help him out. If Tate wasn't on a ride then he was running around from one game to the next lifting his shirt up in the process ( this is his new thing now adays)! It was so much fun to get together with Maggie and her kids, finally cause we have been planning to get together forever. Maggie I hope we make these play dates a weekly occurrence! And my good friend Rach is in town for her brother's wedding this weekend so it was good to see her and her kids. I can't believe how big they are getting and how dang cute all of them are. Thanks Maggie for the invite. We hope to do it again soon!

January and February in Review

I am alittle behind on posting/recording what is going on in our lives because of the whole going private thing. But now that I have all that squared away I will be better about posting more often. I still can't believe we are into the month of March now and that Spring really is just around the corner. I have absolutely loved all the warm weather we have been having. Tate loves to be outside. He would be outside all day long if I would let him, but we don't have a fenced backyard so I can't just let him walk out the back door and play in the backyard and know he is safe. When Tate is outside I have to be outside. Don't get me wrong I do love being outside, but not ALL day long. Tate loves to play around with all the neighborhood boys that are like 5,6,7 years older than he is, but he acts like he can keep up so it's all good! I have been able to take out the jogger a couple times. It feels good to run outside again. I am not a big runner, but I do enjoy putting Tate in the jogger and going for a run around our neighborhood. I look forward to that in the up coming months. Let me know if you would like to join me! January and February we didn't have a ton going on, but through our camera we were able to capture a few of the things we have been up to.

Jazz games with Grandma and Grandpa Johnson are always so much fun!

A few days before Valentines Day we added a new member to our, Tobi. It was a spur of the moment thing, but I am so happy we did it. He is a special part of our family now. We all really love him!

Happy Valentines Day! Dev and I got a babysitter, thanks Sarah, and enjoyed a wonderful night together! We ate dinner at Willowcreek Country Club, it wasn't anything special and definitely not worth the money, but it was a fun atmosphere. I just wish they would have an alternate menu that had "Real" food on it that actually tastes good rather than all this fancy Schmancy food. Oh well, I guess we learned our lesson! After dinner we went to the movie When in Rome and didn't love it so we decided to hit up another movie, Dear John. I have never done the whole see two movies in one night thing, but it was only 9 pm and we were paying a babysitter so why not take advantage of it, right!? Dear John was a great movie to close our night with. Thanks honey for a wonderful Valentines. I love you!

Tate loves his Daddy. Lately Tate can't seem to get enough of his dad. He cries when Dev walks out the door, he wants Dev to hold him all the time, where ever Dev goes Tate is right behind him, he loves to sit on Dev's lap and watch tv, and he loves to wear Dev's hats. I'm not going to lie at first I was a little jealous, but watching these two play together is priceless and always put a smile on my face. I am so happy they have such a special father son bond.

Isn't Tate looking so much older? I can't believe he is 15 months old. Where has the time gone? It feels like just yesterday he was sitting in my arms so peacefully as a cuddled and held him as a newborn. It has been such a joy to watch him grow and develop and learn new things everyday. He can finally say Momma, yeah! He kinda says dog and will bark like one. He knows what a cow says. If you ask him to point to his nose, ears, eyes, and belly button he will sometimes get them all right. I am fascinated by how smart he is and how well he picks up on things. When I ask him to go get his binki he knows exactly where he left it and will bring it to me. I love Tater so much and can't picture my life without him. He has brought so much joy into our lives. I just wish I could press a FREEZE button and have him this age forever!

Can't get enough of the many faces Tate makes

Tate's favorite thing right now is his Basketball and he loves to play pass.

Devin is loving that the warm weather is just around the corner because that means more time for bike rides and golfing! Dev bought a buggy for Tate to ride in for some quality
Father Son time. Tate loves it.
