everything's better together

Caleb is now growing attached to his baby sister.
I'm feeling encouraged :)
Lately, when Abby leaves the room or goes down for a nap, Caleb will ask for her.
Here are some sweet pictures of play time together:

Ok, well this one was right after she realized Mommy wasn't sharing the camera with her, but the rest are pretty sweet.

Birthdays x 2

On March 12, Abby turned one! And the next day, Caleb turned three! We had an exciting weekend of celebrating, but not too many pictures to show for it.

Here are Caleb and Abby in their new tent on Abby's birthday morning. She's also holding her new sippy cup from Caleb...I think this was actually her favorite present:)

We kept the tent up for a couple weeks, and they spent hours playing in there.
So much fun!

Abby was a big fan of her strawberry birthday cake. I laugh to myself because Caleb's first birthday cake was a sugar-free carrot cake. Oh, how things change :)

On Caleb's birthday we had a joint birthday party for Caleb, Abby and our little friend Magdalena who turned three on March 12th. It was a sweet birthday party, but I wonder how much the birthday kids realized it was their birthday party. Oh well, it's probably better in some ways. Sadly we didn't get any pictures of them blowing out candles or any special pictures of Caleb on his birthday, but I think he definitely felt loved and celebrated.

Here are the three birthday kids. At least they're all looking the direction of the camera!
Happy birthday, sweet children!

Caleb and I got to go to the San Antonio Rodeo a few weeks ago with our friends Halli and Hap and Lizette and Dusty. Let me tell you, everyone should experience a rodeo. It was a crazy good time. Caleb loved watching the bucking broncos from the audience, but the next day when Michael and I took Abby and Caleb to the stock show he did not want any animal to come within 20 feet of him. Abby on the other hand wanted to climb on top of all of them!
How cute are these little cowboys?!

snow day in Texas

These pictures were from a couple months ago, but I knew we must document this once in a life time experience. Snow in San Antonio! FYI, this caused a "snow day" for schools here.
