One month!

It's been a month since I had Hunter! Can you believe it?? I sure can't.. It's been kind of a blur. I've been taking pictures of some of our fun, but haven't gotten on to share. Here are some of the things we've been up to!

Tie dye cupcakes {directions HERE}
Xavier needed a little Mommy time, so we made some fun cupcakes! I was a little lazy and used box cake and store bought frosting with some bright colored sprinkles. We had a lot of fun making them, and even more fun eating them. We called them "Rainbow" cupcakes though since Xavier loves rainbows so much. :)

Every year our town celebrates the start of the cherry season with a HUGE parade and street fair. This was our first family outing with Hunter. The parade was great and Xavier probably got as much candy as he did last Halloween. After the parade it gets a little crazy downtown, so we ended up heading home a little earlier than we'd planned.

A firefighter gave Xave a little plastic hat at the parade, and when we got home we decked him out with all the stickers they handed out with a few extras too. He was pretty excited about the whole thing.. and apparently missing his pants! :)

Hunter shares his birthday with my husband's Grandpa, and a few weeks after we had a BBQ with some of his family to celebrate. (75 years!) While we were all talking Xavier wandered over to the food table and started eating the beans right out of the pan. I was a little mortified but everyone just thought it was funny.

Xavier goes to a play group with some of the kids from church every week, and they got to go to a local children's "museum" where they get to play and do some hands on activities. I was still pretty worn out so Grandma took him, but it sounded like a lot of fun! Once I get to feeling more active and motivated we'll have to go again.

So I didn't really crave foods while I was pregnant, but I've craved foods like crazy in the last few weeks. Fruit pizza was one of them. I made a huge sheet tray of it and was a pretty happy camper! This is something I've had since I was a kid and is a fairly common recipe, but here's the one I used  just in case your like me and haven't ever actually made it! {Fruit Pizza}

We had a beautiful Sunday morning a week ago, so we took some pictures with our little man after church. Isn't he sweet in his little sweater vest? :)

We're currently living with my in-laws and they're re-doing their front yard, so Xave's been having a blast helping out. Every day he's come in covered in dirt and happy as a clam. He looks pretty darn cute in Daddy's hat too!

And here's our little guy. Still can't believe he's a month old already. What a joy he's been so far. :)

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
