More loot from my veggie garden :)

I picked five green peppers and five more jalepeno's this afternoon :) Theres a little green pepper in there only because when I was picking I accidentally broke off the plant where that one was trying to get another one off. So happy my garden is growing nicely. I really should take another picture of it, and compare it to the one I took before. My plants are HUGE. They're seriously overcrowding each other in the garden. I think next year the garden is going to be AT LEAST twice the size!

Pick up your toys??

I asked Ricky to pick up his toys so I could sweep his room, and he put them on top of his bed lol. Look familiar mom?!!

My poor lil guy

My poor little Charlie woke up with his back covered in hives this morning :( We're not sure if its from the eggs or if its from contact with walnuts last night. Were going to not give him eggs for a few days then try it again and see if thats what did it. If not, Im going to turn into way overprotective super paranoid mama because that'll mean its nuts and that just scares the shit out of me. Especially if he has a rash like this after just comming into contact with them. Either way, looks like some allergy testing is in store for my little guy at some point soon.

What did Charlie find?

Hmmmm I wonder what this ribbon is for....
Aha! Its for this fancy shmancy balloon!

Mr. Freezie

My mother = absolute GENIUS!
Charlie has been an absolute monster all day long. He's teething, the tooth is right there it just needs to break. So mom suggested giving him a freezie, but instead of cutting it straight across, just cutting the corners(and making them rounded so he didnt cut his mouth) so that the freezie stays inside but he gets the juice and the cold of the ice to chew on. Worked perfectly, he loved it, and was much happier afterwards (for about an hour anyways :S lol)

Sleeping in the closet?!

This is where I found Ricky after breakfast this morning-in our closet lol He has this thing where he brings his pillow/blankets and sets them up in random places. His normal haunts are on the floor in front of the tv and in the playpen. So this one is new, and it totally made me laugh when I found him!

Berry Crisp

I made this on Sunday, and completely forgot I had taken pictures of it! It was super yummy when it was cooked. It had strawberries, blackberries and wild blueberries on the bottom with a standrd crisp on top.

Quick little update

No pictures today but wanted to update. Charlie had a doctors appointment this morning(10month checkup-gosh almost ten months already! where has the time gone!) Anyways, he weighs 20lbs7oz and is 30 inches tall!! I was also in on this doctors appointment as my midwife wants me to go for an ultrasound (I cant get in to see her until the 4th of August) to do the dating for this pregnancy. As I only had one period(tmi im sorry!) since having Charlie apparently thats not incredibly accurate in determining how far along I am. Dont have the date for the u/s yet but I imagine it'll be within the next week or two. So excited to see bebe#3!!!
That is all :)

She thinks my tractors sexy....

Our new(to us) tractor...

The storm missed us...

These clouds are the back end of the storm that completely missed us. I thought they were pretty neat looking-thus the pictures :)

All about Ricky

He thought he should give his trucks a bath in his boat pool lol
He likes this swing as much as Charlie! And he still fits in it too :)
Playing in his toybox lol

Carrie, Carrie quite contrary, what does your garden grow?! ;)

Little tiny canteloupes are growing :)
This watermelon  is about the size of my fist. I showed it to Ricky, the first thing out of his mouth "I want to eat it" lol
Another little watermelon (were going to have tons of melons, theres a bazillion flowers on both my watermelon and canteloupe plants!!)
Little tiny pepper :)

Today, July 17th

Had to take a picture because I knew it wouldnt stay this clean, and as I type there are blocks and trucks all over the floor...
He loves this swing, its his favorite thing to do outside, especially since he hates the grass lol
And lastly, this is the rain that we're NOT getting :S There was rain over the lake and rain to our south(this batch) and were still dry. Maybe something will pop up though, thats what it seems to be doing...Keeping my fingers crossed!
