I’ve been trying to make more of an effort to take photos with my iPhone, especially when I don’t have my big camera with me. As I was going through my phone the other night I realized how many pictures I had on there! Some are over a year old! I know that I’ve posted a few on Facebook, but I haven’t put any on the blog here. So get ready to be inundated with iPhone photos! (These were all edited using Instagram. My username is AccordingToMommy if you ever want to follow along and see what I’m up to.)
Also, these are in no particular order…they are kind of all over the place and definitely very random!
Nate started swim lessons last week. So while he takes his lesson in the big pool…
…Will and I play in the little kid area.
We are at the pool almost every day, so the coat hook things in our laundry room, the ones that normally hold jackets and coats, now hold drying towels.
This was on Nate’s last day of school last month.
They had a little party at the end of class where they got to do a fun craft.
They also got to have a fun snack. The mom who brought the snacks was nice enough to let Will have one. This is when I caught him grabbing a second one!
We have season passes to Six Flags, and it is definitely one of Nate’s favorite places to go. Now that Will is taller he is starting to be able to ride more of the rides, and now he loves it, too!
Fun on the swings at Six Flags!
Not sure when this was taken, but judging by the bib and the fact that he’s wearing jeans, I would guess about 5-6 months ago.
Here is Will at Easter trying on some cute bunny ears I found at Target.
Here is Will last Easter trying on another cute pair of bunny ears! (And those cheeks! Love them!!)
So just barely topping Six Flags as his most favorite place to visit, would be Great Wolf Lodge. We’ve been twice now, and Nate pretty much loves it and wants to live there. Here he is in the bunk bed the first time we got to visit.
This was taken probably a year ago, Will and Daddy playing games at Chuck E. Cheese (yet another Nate favorite!).
This was last Christmas. My mom bought the boys this picnic table, and they love it! We had it in the house for several months, and they ate every meal at it. Once it started to get warmer we moved it outside, and now they like to sit out there and eat popsicles.
This was also at Christmas. For the Christmas Eve church service they have a little bit for the kids where they get to dress up like a Biblical character, and then as they read the story of the birth of Jesus, all the kids get to come down and sit at the front of the sanctuary. Some kids dress up like Mary or Joseph or the Wise Men…Nate was a donkey. A Christmas donkey. He had this really cute blanket given to him by my mother-in-law, and it worked perfectly!
I’m sure this was probably taken at the same time as the donkey picture, judging by Will’s jeans and sweater. He went through this phase where he ripped off his socks and shoes as soon as we got in the car, no matter how cold it was. And then occasionally he liked to chew on his toes!
This was the day after Thanksgiving. Will and I are sharing a slice of cherry pie. For breakfast. Yep, that’s the kind of thing you do on the day after Thanksgiving!
Last fall my sister and her husband took us with them to a Cowboys game, where they have season tickets. It was so much fun, and Nate had a blast!
Probably taken a year ago, since Will is still crawling here. He is either trying to steal the ball away from Merchant or trying to share with him. There’s no way to know!
This was taken last summer, I think. We had gone to the doctor’s office, and as we were leaving Nate said he was tired of walking and wanted to get in the stroller. This is just our regular stroller, not our double stroller, so I just dropped the back all the way down and shoved him in there with Will. Problem solved!
Last summer…cute boys!!
Will is probably 5 or 6 months old in these pictures. We had gone to Chick-Fil-A, and while Nate was playing Will and I ate and took some pictures with my phone!
This was just last week. The boys playing so nicely together!
Nate jumping off the couch onto a pile of pillows!
The boys sitting on the end table (!) watching TV.
This was just a few days ago. Will and I took a little walk and then ended up at the park where he played and showed off his jungle gym skills.
Will likes eating watermelon wedges with a fork. He likes eating most things with a fork. If it can possibly be eaten with a fork, he will give it a try. He’s going to be like George Costanza from “Seinfeld” eating his Snickers bar with a knife and a fork if I don’t watch it!!
And finally, Nate looking oh-so-Nate with some sunglasses and a crazy pirate hat.
How thankful I am that I have my iPhone and am able to capture these fun, everyday moments!
