Peace out!

In just a few short days, Justin and I will be toes in sand and kid free!  We planned a last minute trip to Cancun.  We are going with two other couples.  I can't think of a more perfect way to celebrate our sixth wedding anniversary and Justin's birthday!!


Max and Claire are going to stay with Grandma and Grandpa.  They will be in heaven! They have big plans to go to the Georgia Aquarium!
I will miss them soooo much but this trip is sooooo needed!

A couple of other things I have been meaning to document..

Things Claire says:
"How about that"
"Say please Max, use your manners"
"I'm a good Mommy"
After she finishes explaining something to us, she cocks her head to the side and says, "so..." with her hands on her hips!
There are a lot more, but I can't remember her exact wording...need to right it down.
-she is constantly bossing Max around and at times, tells me what to do.  Really trying to work on that.  She is very observant and mimics everything.  She knows her ABCs, counts to 14, and knows the words to "Jesus loves Me", "You are my Sunshine", "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star", knows colors
We have a secret kiss.  We each kiss our fingers then touch each others hands (does that make sense?)

Max recently came up to me and called me "his best" :) totally melted my heart!  He is obsessed with his new play guitar.  He makes the silliest funny faces.  He calls his big animals or toys, "the big guy"
He can also say his ABCs and count to 10 and knows his colors.  He sings "twinkle, twinkle", loves Move it, Move it song and "darcy's song" which is a song from Naughty by Nature.  Both are obsessed with that song and know how to find it on my phone.  He has the most infectious laugh.  He is a fish in the water.  He likes to jump off the side and go under and does belly flops when he's wearing his floaties!

Both talk in sentences and it amazes me what they know!


  1. Wow, have a wonderful time in Cancun!! That sounds wonderful. Oh little Claire, she sure cracks me up!

  2. Have a great time! Vacations with friends are the BEST!!!
