The other day I was doing a practice set-up run for a photo shoot I was going to have in a few days and Bo asked, "Mom, do you want to take some pictures of me?"  Umm, yes please. Usually I have to beg for a photo of him looking and smiling at the camera.  The hardest part was convincing him to get some clothes on, since the kid lives in his gundies. 
He's almost 4 1/2 now.  Crazy.

If you know me well, you know that I like to make cookies.  I make at least a batch a week.  Recently, for some reason, I've gotten out of the habit.  Being stuck inside on these gloomy days lately, I knew that some  cookies would entertain and cheer us up a bit.
Usually Bo is my big helper in the kitchen.  But on this night, Cruz couldn't have been a bigger helper.
Once the boy tasted the goods, all the helping he could do was to help lick the spoon clean.

"Mmmmmmm!" he says

Oh, was he mad when I took him away from that bowl.

With the first snow of the season, came lots of excitement.  They were even willing to look at me with smiles while I took their picture so they could get out of the house quicker.

This little boy, on the other hand, gave me more of an eye roll.  He didn't know the fun that was to come, he's never gotten to play in the snow before.

Yep, and he loved it.  
Loved eating it, that is.

No snowmen this time around.  The snow wasn't packing well enough.  But all in all, the snow was a hit.

One Year Ago Today

I was going through old pictures today and came across this one.  I took it one year ago today of the little squirts.
And here we are today (yesterday actually), it's not easy getting one of them together! 

At this rate, we'll be sending them off to college next week!

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse

He's obsessed. 

Literally, if Mickey's not on the tv, he says "uh-oh", or asks for it by attempting to sing the theme song. 

He'll sit exactly like this, completely focused on the show the whole 25 minutes.

Cute, and pretty darn convenient, but perhaps a little worrisome?

I don't think I've ever caught this boy smiling this much on camera before.  Pretty funny.

And while all this smiling was going on, his big brother was being a complete goofball himself.

Maybe I'll just blame all the goofiness on cabin fever.  We're all definitely coming down with something!

They're Gone

His sweet little curls came off the other day.  It was a very hard decision, but they didn't really curl anymore unless he had just gotten out of the tub, or I wetted his hair down.  His hair usually looked pretty crazy.

So I got started with the buzzer, then daddy cleaned it up.  I'm not very good at fading.  And Cruz wasn't exactly cooperative.  But he did do a pretty good job with Mickey on the tv and a bottle in his mouth.

It's like there's a new kid running around my house.  He seems older, and slimmer :)  Not perfect, but definitely cute.

Then, after a little bribing, I got the two of them to pose together for these shots.
