Around the Dillon house!

Big smiles from my handsome boy!!  Joshua is always smiling these days.  It is so cute, he wakes up with the biggest smiles and is such a happy boy!
Hanging out on the couch watching football with Daddy!
Handsome Old Navy PJ's!  (It seems like it was just yesterday that Michael was wearing these!!  I guess it really wasn't that long ago though!)

Sweet Michael always wakes up from his naps very sensitive.  He loves to cuddle and snuggle with his bear blankie and pacifier.   I love his cuddly mood because he loves to curl up in my lap and freely give lots of hugs and kisses!

The Coppala family was so amazing and made Michael and Jocelyn these AMAZING rocking horses!!  It was such a great surprise!   The kids loved them and Michael is always asking to ride his!  Thank you guys so much!!

Time with Family :)

This past weekend we visited my Grandma and Grandpa Cole at their mountain home in Newland, NC.  We had such a great time spending time with them.  Jay got to golf with my grandfather twice and I spent some great time hanging out with Granny!  They loved meeting sweet Joshua and seeing how much Michael has changed.  We enjoyed several wonderful meals and some wonderful weather!

Michael one year ago in NC!
In the same rocker this year!  (I could not get him to smile on demand!)  Look at how much he has changed though!
Grandpa and Grandma and their great grandbaby boys!

Grandpa and his great grandson!
I had to put this picture up because it captured Joshua laughing!  He has been laughing so much lately and it is just the cutest thing in the world!

Holding onto Great Grandma's finger
Michael watching Full House with his paci and bear blankie

Big sweet smiles!!
Being silly on the way home with blankie on his head!  We though he would fall asleep since we left at 6:30 and got home around 9:00 but he laughed and played the whole way home!
At the beginning of last week Mom and Aunt Marilyn came to visit!!  It was such a fun time with the girls!  We had so much fun relaxing together and enjoying the kids and some yummy meals.  I always have so much fun laughing with Mama and Marilyn :)  They are so sweet and always come bearing gifts!  Thank you guys so much!!

Michael LOVED his truck that Grandpa picked out for him!!  He has not stopped playing with it since the moment he got it!
Playing with Grandma :)
Michael is saying so many words right now it is hard to keep up with all of the new ones but he loves to race his cars and trucks and say "car" or "truck" and "vroom vroom."  He will say, "ready... go!" and race them towards us.  Toddlers are so much fun!

Fun at the Lakeside Tavern!

Yes, Daddy did teach Michael to do this!  I could not believe it!!  I told Jay I am going to wind up in the ER with something stuck up his nose now!!  Haha... but of course I had to take a picture!

The boys in their grey
I wish he still took this paci... Michael has loved his pacifier since day one and we have always struggled to get Joshua to take it.  As of today, if you even try to go near his mouth with it he gets upset... very upset.  Sad!  I am going to keep trying though!
The boys watching Praise Baby together :)
My precious little one.  It is amazing how much you can love both of your babies at the same time.  I love how God made it possible to love all of your children and your husband and your family more than anything in this world and yet never run out of love :)
It is kind of hard to tell but his new hair is growing in so blonde just like big brother... so cute!

Recent Photoshoot and a few others!

Joshua turned 3 months yesterday so I decided it was time for a photo shoot!  His smiles are just so cute I can't get enough!!  I know these pictures probably look similar to you but I had a hard time narrowing it down because I saw different parts of his little personality in each one :)  Pictures from our vacation will be up soon... there are so many I am having to narrow those down too!  I love pictures!  Can you tell?  Haha

Joshua is already so full of personality!  

Handsome big brother, Michael 

Checking out his toes!

Check out how intently they are both watching The Wiggles!
Sweet baby!
Silly boy!

Look at those long eyelashes!
Michael is really into dirt and trucks right now... all boy!

Vanessa, Courtney and Christine... three amazing girls who we love!!!
Fun at both of our pools!
