Boy Time

One evening Kyle took Nora on a date, so the boys and I went on our own adventure to the Lego Store.

I love this brotherly teamwork!

I know it's well after his birthday, but I need to do an update post for our sweet 3 year old!

Kolter is:

25 lbs. 2 oz.

32.87 inches


a ham...he will do anything for a laugh

a great eater...some of his favorites include pickles and chips. He will eat sweets but never finish a dessert. He prefers salty treats. He loves stir-fry and lots of stuff mommy and daddy won't touch ;)

a lover of dinosaurs

a lover of superheroes (especially Superman)

competitive...if you present a request/command as a game he is always eager to complete it


a great talker...he speaks very clearly and has a great vocabulary

an ABC singing extraordinaire 

a blue eyed boy

a one cheek dimple boy

a blondie

a snacker...he would prefer to snack all day and not eat real meals.

a counter...he loves to count and can make it to 20.

Scroll to the bottom of this post to about some of his favorites in his own words!

Child Labor

After several years of neglect our new backyard needed a little TLC. After a lot of hacking, cutting and raking it's starting to be more functional. The kids were very helpful cleaning up their play space!

But some jobs they could only supervise ;)
