Backyard Play Date

The Saturday before Mother’s Day my sister, Wendi, and I had a garage sale. It always feels so good to get rid of stuff! We actually had a really good sale and made almost $600 combined!

After the garage sale some friends stopped by and we had an impromptu play date!

Our friends, Brandon & Brittany, have a little boy, Brody, who is 6 months older than Adelyn and 3 months younger than Hayden. It was fun to watch the 2 boys play together!IMG_1949

Brandon & Brittany are expecting their 2nd boy the end of this month!IMG_1950

Brody & Adelyn loved to play on the slide that Grandma & Grandpa Green brought up a few weeks ago. It was so cute to watch Brody, he would sit down a ways back from the slide and have to scoot to the edge before he’d go down the slide!

Mother’s Day Celebrations

The Monday before Mother’s Day we celebrated at my Mom’s house because my sister Stef was in town from Omaha for a few days. 411049_10150883799152348_586497347_9562815_1424622129_o

Stef made a delicious lasagna (Mom’s request) and we all brought a side to share.461194_10150883797342348_586497347_9562800_347688739_o

I put Adelyn in the bumbo on a chair since Hayden was in his high chair…does it make it look SO big??

And of course the kiddos had some good play time! I should say that Adelyn likes to play with Hayden…but Hayden is too busy for her!

Saturday night (before Mother’s Day) we met up with Kyle’s parents for supper at Sport’s Page, Kyle’s Mom’s pick. IMG_1985

And we finished the night with ice cream at a local favorite ice cream shoppe! (more on that in another post!)IMG_1988

Adelyn was so excited for Mother’s Day that she woke up at 5am Sunday morning! Daddy was so sweet, took care of our baby, and let Mama sleep in!

Kyle & Adelyn got me a very nice card, a gift certificate for 3 half hour massages, and I get to design a Mother’s ring (that can be added to). They certainly spoiled this Mama!IMG_1991

We were planning on going to Des Moines, but Adelyn was so tired after church we ended up staying in town for the day. While she was napping Kyle & I watched The Vow.

I wasn’t set on a certain place for lunch, but knew I wanted to eat outside, it was a beautiful day. Mineral City it was!

It was the perfect spot for an outdoor lunch with my two most favorite people in the world!IMG_1993

We had a low key afternoon and got Papa Murphys for supper (Yay for no cooking!). It was the perfect 1st Mother’s Day spent with the one’s I love most!IMG_1994

The Latest

I had to do a random update of a few little things that Adelyn is up to these days!

If she doesn’t get her way she will lay down and put her head down. Let’s hope this isn’t a sign of a strong willed little girl! We don’t fall for it either…in fact it kind of makes Kyle & I giggle (are we mean?)!

IMG_1917

We only have 2 pacifiers at home and are usually really good about keeping track of them. One day we searched HIGH & LOW for that silly little thing and couldn’t find it.

IMG_1937

Adelyn knew where it was the whole time! Silly girl!

IMG_1938

We haven’t installed the child locks on the cupboards yet and Adelyn takes full advantage of that!

IMG_1940

She loves to drag everything out of the cabinets, play with them, and leave a path of destruction!

Adelyn’s 9 Month Pictures

Back in March we had Adelyn’s 9 month pictures taken by the amazing, Ashley Wilkerson. I have loved getting her pictures taken every 3 months, so glad we did the 1st year package!

Thankfully we had a beautiful, warm Saturday morning to get them taken. Without further ado, here are pictures of my gorgeous baby (of course, I’m biased!).

We did take a few more, but I’m using them on her birthday party invitation so you can’t see them…just yet!

Which one is your favorite?

Peek-a-boo!

Before I get into Adelyn’s favorite game, I wanted to share a little about me and our family. Today I linked up with a blog, Kelly’s Korner and her “Want to make some new friends?” post.

I’m Darci, my husband is Kyle, and our 10 month old daughter is Adelyn. Kyle and I have been married for 7 years (this July). We live in central Iowa within about 30 minutes of each of the towns we grew up in. We love Jesus, family, and the Hawkeyes! Would love to know more about you and see where you blog! Feel free to comment!dsc01632edited-3-XL

Adelyn loves to squat down by an end table or the coffee table and then…

…pop back up for peek-a-boo!

Sometimes we even catch her doing by herself!IMG_1776

Such a funny little girl and so cute!

Too often I’m always behind the camera and not with Adelyn. So after church we had to get a few with Mommy!

Daddy is content staying behind the camera though…or Adelyn!IMG_1802
