Pearce is 10 months!!!
Travis started talking about how that's double digits and quite close to 1 and that mildly upset me. 
Remember how I kept saying he was like a giant newborn? 
Welllllll apparetnly that's frowned upon. 
He was evaluated for ECI (Early Childhood Intervention) and qualified for two categories so we will start "excercieses" this month. 
He's been eating more human food and I've started weaning him because breastfeeding is for the birds. 
He makes THE BEST facial expressions and we all know he gets that from me. 
(I was once told I would make a nice cartoon character.)
Pearcey Pie we don't care if you never crawl, we'll hold your squishy baby body FOREVER!!!!

Full disclosure: I'm in an unhealthy relationship with a TV show and it's preventing me from blogging. 
I may be 14 years behind in Lost, but I AM SO IN. 
(I'm also into Pearce's facial expressions as of late, they are just too good)
My TV show addiction is slowing down my book progress for the year, but I've still got one a month so that's something.

Team Fire

There's a new soccer star in town. 
Well...probably not but she looks good doing it. 
Coach Daddy is back too. 
When Travis calls himself Coach Daddy I roll my eyes but secretly it's the best. 
Who knows what this soccer season will hold? 
Probably tears and lots of bribing. 

(Also I have a new favorite store and I got Ruth's soccer tee for 50 cents!!!)

Easter 2018

Easter was so good! 
We got all the kids dressed and out the door by 7:30. 
That's a record for us. 
Church, lunch, naps and cousin time. 
Hayes had a rough time (see picture above) but let's blame that on being two.
Also, Ruth's expressions below are everything to me.

new adventures

I didn't tell you much about our spring break and that's because it was incredibly uneventful. 
Only things worth noting: 
I had an unfortunate incident with self tanner and we took the kids to a run down amusement park near by. 
($2 admission! Yes please!) 
Kids don't know when things are junky and I love that about them! 
(I think G was sad because during her donkey ride her donkey pooped ... I suppose that can be terribly embarrassing...)

Whatever works...

When Hayes is acting up (which really is quite often these days...) we get out the lion mask. 
Mainly because he hates it. 
He'll require therapy someday for this and I'll apologize when that day comes. 
For now, the technique is very effective at getting him in line.

9 months of P

Pearce is 9 months!
20 lbs 5 oz. 
He's so squishy so smiley. 
Still not moving but sitting like a champ. 
Just started to actually eat the solids I've been giving him and just happens to think I'm hilarious.
(Those are all great things!)
This month brought another bottom tooth and a case of eczema. 
9 months ago we didn't even know about him, and now we don't remember life without him. 
We love you P!
