Big man turns 4 & Baby girl, 3 mos.

My babies are growing. They each reached a milestone these last few days. Garyn turned 4 on Sunday and Ansley is now 3 months as of Monday. I am in awe of how they have changed right before my eyes lately.

Garyn is so boyish now........he wants to box with everyone; he plays pretend constantly; he reads and wants to write new words all the time; and unfortunately like most boys he is addicted to his Wii video games.
(Yes, that is one change I do NOT like! We are working on scaling back his playtime!)

When deciding what type of party he wanted, he not surprisingly chose a Mario party. Cars 2 and Mickey Mouse were in the race, as well, but Mario won as usual.

We had to get a little creative since there is a limited amount of Mario party supplies. Tyler made fun of me while I spent hours drawing, coloring and cutting out Mario characters. I may have stressed a little much over it...ok a lot...but I was pleased in the end.
This is the best plant for me....the one in the pot before this died from the lack of my green thumb...

Of course, Wii games had to be played at the Mario party.....

I was proud of Garyn for not getting upset about having to share and stop playing when it was time to do cake and presents
I drew the Bowser mean guy there on top of the shelf and had "fire" balls for them to throw at him just like Mario does in the game. 
Ansley played well, too....

Cake time!
(Funny story- that night we went to eat with my brother and his family. Lorna, my niece, told the waiter it was Garyn's birthday and he brought out dessert and sang to him..... btw Garyn had not had a nap.....Garyn precedes to yell out crying saying it wasn't his birthday anymore and he didn't want to do it again....we couldn't help but laugh which only made it worse)

Garyn got a bike! I foresee many scrapes and the one on his knee in this picture...he hasn't quite got the hang of pedaling yet, but is excited to learn.

Ansley is now 3 months old and much more interactive. She is definitely entering a new baby phase constantly moving and she smiles a lot.....

We just can't get enough of that smile. She also is starting to babble and laugh....

She moves so much in her bed at night. I'll go in the dark to give her her paci or to feed her and in my sleepy stupor, I'll have the hardest time finding her mouth or arms to pick her up. She is rolling over, too. The first time was at the beach but then she didn't do it again until last week. Now any time shes laying she'll roll to her stomach. Here is a video of her babbling, moving and a roll at the end...

(Sorry that video was a little long)

I love my babies and hope I can cherish these moments amongst the craziness of life.
