I cannot even stand how amazing these pictures are.  I seriously shed a tiny tear when I saw them.  A HUGE thank you to Chelle Cates Photography for capturing sweet moments of my kiddos!  
I thought posting these pictures would be a good time to write about what my "babies" are up to these days.
 Cole is 5 {he will turn 6 in November} and will start kindergarten in five weeks.  He is ready, I am not.  He still loves all sports.  He plays soccer and baseball, went to tennis camp and goes to the driving range all the time.  He loves watching sports on tv and talks about sports all the time.  He only likes to play sports related video games on the wii or his DS.  Occasionally he will play with Leggos, super heros or toy guns.

He is my sweet boy.  He is very sensitive but Touch is not his love language.  He has a hard time expressing his emotions but is caring and gets his feelings hurt easily.  He does not like attention when he is with people other than his mom and dad.  He gets embarrassed easily. 

He is smart.  I think he is going to be a math and science kind of guy.  He does addition and subtraction in his head.  He does not have a sense of time.  I mean ZERO.  

He is still a picky eater but is getting better every day.  He loves yogurt.  He loves Oreo's dunked in milk.  He likes raspberries, strawberries, oranges, red apples, corn and green beans.  Of course he loves junk food too.

Maybe he will be a lawyer some day.  He loves to argue.

He is a wonderful big brother.  He looks after his sister and gets upset when she is upset though he would never want you to know how much he really loves her.  They play really well together.  He is making her one tough cookie.

He has only gained 2 pounds in the past two years but he is very tall.  Another growth spurt is coming, I can tell by how much he is eating and sleeping.  He wears a size 6 in pants and shirts for the length but they have to be tightened for his waist.  He wears a size 12 shoe.

His favorite movies are:  Real Steel, Transformers, Avengers, Iron Man, How to Train Your Dragon, Despicable Me 1 and 2, Tarzan and Kung Fu Panda 1 and 2.

His will still watch "baby shows" because his sister watches them:  Henry Hugglemonster, Mickey Mouse, Sofia the First and Doc McStuffins.  He also loves Tom and Jerry re-runs.

He loves to swim and jump on our trampoline and help his daddy with everything around the house.

We love him so much!
Campbell is 2 and will be 2 1/2 in September.  Where do I begin.  She is a mess.  She is high maintenance, dramatic, funny and very sweet.  She is strong willed and smart.

Every thing is a very big deal to her.  She gets very excited and equally upset. There is no middle ground and she can turn the tears on and off like you have never seen before.

She is so funny.  She makes us laugh constantly.  Her personality is funny, her mannerisms are funny and the things she says and the way she says them are funny.  She is a cutie pie!

Her love language is Touch for sure.  She loves to give and receive hugs and kisses a lot!  She is very affectionate and friendly.  She makes friends where ever she goes.

She is strong and coordinated.  She loves her dance class, jumping on the trampoline, playing soccer and basketball.  She is tough.

She really loves stickers right now.  She will sit for hours putting stickers on herself, paper, dolls heads you name it.  She also loves and I mean loves chap stick.  She likes to play blocks, do puzzles, and color. She loves to take pictures with my phone and loves looking at pictures of herself.  She likes watching videos of herself too.

She has a good balance of being a girly girl and being rough and tumble.  She likes to have her finger and toe nails painted.  She likes wearing dresses, bows and is obsessed with shoes.  At the same time she doesn't mind getting dirty or sweaty, she will wrestle with her brother, loves to run, play with toy guns and thinks toots are hilarious.

She has become a picky eater.  She loves strawberries, bananas, grapes, cheese, hot dogs, grilled cheese, cereal, green beans, nutrigrain bars, pretzels and a few other things.  She doesn't eat much just a little bit here and there.

She wears a size 4t in clothes and a size 7 shoe.  She is short and stocky:)

We lover her so much!
