Casen's Room

 I can't seem to find the post about Casen's final room. I'm actually thinking now that I never did one. Since we want to print books of our blog someday for the kids I want this to be in his book! The bedding is from the Baby Guy at the OC swap meet. Was so happy the way it came out. We got to design every element of it.

 His changing table along with matching changing pad print. I did a wall collage of mirrors and hooks that are guitar handles. However now that Casen is bigger he is trying to take these all down. Jocelyn never touched any of the decor above her changing table. Another thing that is different between the two of them!
 I bought $1 shadow frames at the Dollar Tree! Then I painted them turquoise! I cut some guitar fabric that matched his bedding and glued it inside. Then I got some letters at Joann's fabric and painted them white. I stuck a 1/2" thick foam between the letter and the fabric so it would pop off the fabric and not sit flat. I love how it came out!
I bought a black drum wall decal on amazon! It was actually easier to stick to the wall than I though!
We actually still need to put up some shelves but you get the idea of his room decor! We love how it turned out!

Memorial Day Weekend

 We started the weekend off by going to dinner with Grandma and Grandpa Davis! Great picture of Jocelyn and Grandma! I also love how Casen is leaning WAY back in the background. He saw some lights and just kept following them with his head! Too funny!
 On Saturday we made our way up to Northridge to go to my very good friends sons 1st birthday! My friends Cher is holding Caden, then me with my two kids and then Natalie with the birthday boy, Colton!
 Colton (1), Caden and Casen! The 3 "C"s all born in the same year. Caden and Casen are also 1 day apart! They were due on the same day as well! Too funny!! Caden lives up in Beverly Hills so we haven't see him too much but hope the boys will be good friends someday with their similarities!
 Then saturday night came and Casen started to sneeze......and had running, watery eyes......(see below)....
On no little man please don't get sick! So we layed low and close to home all day Sunday! My mom came over after church and kept Jocelyn very entertained so we could let Casen rest more!

 On Monday he still wasn't 100% so we decided to stay away from everyone and went to the beach with our family of 4! We got there are 8:45am and got an amazing parking spot! We went to Mother's Beach in Long beach which has a playground on one side! It's a really great family place! Jocelyn was done by 11:30! We went to pick up lunch and home for naps!
 Casen's 1st time at the beach! We put his toes in the water of course too! Soon after he passed out for his 9am nap! He slept the entire time! Only woke up a little when we put him in the car but passed right back out again!

 Come Tuesday Daddy had another day off. Daycare was closed as well so it worked out perfect. Casen perked up a bit in the morning so mommy went on to work! Daddy took the kids to the park for the day!
 They also played in the backyard a lot!

But then Casen started to fade again! He only wanted to sleep or lay on Daddy!

 When I got home he was not doing well at all. He didn't have a fever but mommy knew something was off so off to the baby urgent care we went! Yep-doctor confirmed mommy's fears-a double ear infection! She said it was just barely beginning but for sure was probably the reason he got worse yesterday! So only his 2nd time being official "sick" in his short 8 months! Not too bad I have to say!
He will be on the mend in no time!!

Two Clean Babies

 Jocelyn wanted me to take her picture after her bath. She thought her hair was so pretty and wanted me to capture it!
 But she made silly faces too!
 Then she did a few surprise faces too!
 Then came the hair shaking! She loves to do that after bathtime!
 Casen jumped in the photo after his bath too!
 She gave him giant hugs! But all he wanted to do was try and nose dive off the couch!
 She was copying him at this point! She thought that was pretty funny!

 She put her arm around Casen and of course he immediately put her hand in his mouth!
 Took her a minute to realize it!
 To her that was disgusting!! Ewww brother cooties! Haha!

 Back to copying Casen's every move!

Silly girl time for bed!!!!

Casen-8 months

I actually got a chance to take Casen's month photos on his actual 8 month "birthday"! Jocelyn's eyes got super big when I said, "It's Casen's 8 month birthday!" Do not use the word birthday around her unless you are prepared for a party with a cake and a bounce house! HA!

All done mommy!! He is of course getting more and more mobile these days. No official crawling but it up on all fours still, rocking back and forth. Also rolls and spins around to get where he needs to go-which is everywhere!!!
Oh books!!!
Jocelyn was helping me get him to smile! But then she said her baby had a poopy diaper.....minus the diaper I guess! She said it was a MESS! See her face below...."pee-youuuu" she said! HA!

No she is singing to the baby!
Casen didn't like the singing I guess....! But love that face that I could him making!
Happy 8 months to our curious boy Casen!

Duck feeding, Tree hugging, Getting Married Daughter!

 For a few weeks we have been saving the heels to our bread loafs to feed the ducks at the park. Jocelyn has been asking to go do this for awhile! After mommy slept all morning from still not feeling well we had to get the kids out of the house! So in the later afternoon we headed out to feed the ducks! Jocelyn loved it and threw the bread pretty well to them all. Until she wanted to eat the bread herself!
 So we moved on to the swings! Sometimes she wants to swing forever and other day you push her twice and she says, "Ok, all done!" Silly girl!

 She was in a super hugging mood apparently! She asked me if she could go over and hug this tree! HA! Sure honey-go give that tree a hug! So she did! She started to hug ALL the trees in the park! Such our sweet girl!

 Meanwhile Casen was busy trying to crawl all over the place. He wouldn't stay on his blanket unless he had his bottle!
 Which by the way he has been holding on his own for a few weeks. Well when he wants to anyways!
 Someone got tired and wanted to sit down! Guess she thought Casen's carseat looked like the most comfy! Time to go home!
 After we got out of the car we let her play in the front yard (and our neigbors yard) a little bit! She did something that totally caught me off guard. She bent over and picked up a dandolion and held it to her chest. Then she tilted her head, smiled and said, "I'm getting maried!!" In her sweetest voice and just stood there like I should be taking her picture! So I did! But first I laughed right outloud! I did NOT except her to say that!

 See that head tilt.....
 See that adorable smile with the smiling eyes too..............she just kept repeating, "I'm getting married!"
I asked her who she was getting married too! She said, "to me!" Typcial two year old response I guess right!? I still loved it! Just never know what she will say next!

I think because of our reaction she kept doing it over and over! I didn't care I just loved that look!!
