Sunshine Sunday - warmth, the final tri, and coolness

This week has been warmer, which has been such a gift.  We've had a lot to time to play outside.  The boys have been riding bikes, playing with their stomp rocket, and running around like crazy.

I'm past the six month mark now, which makes things feel a little more real.

And I'm excited to have a baby, to take my mind off the fact that my boys are getting old.  Rex in particular is growing really fast.  His personality is so different from Baden's.  Here is a real conversation we had this week.  I'm not embellishing it one bit.  This kid is only five, keep in mind.

Me: Rex!  You have your first field trip for kindergarten!  It says they need moms to come along and help.  Do you want mommy to come with you?

Rex: (after a deep breath)  Do you know how sometimes you like your space, mom?  You know how sometimes you do a girl's night out?  Well, I need my space too.

Really?  Yes.  This kid won't go anywhere without me doing his hair just the right way and he asked me to take a picture of him the other day when he thought he looked extra cool.  The pose is his own.  Who is this kid?

It's a good thing that this little guy still can't get enough of me :)

These boys definitely keep life interesting.  I'm so glad they are mine.

Thanks for stopping by.

So sweet! :) I love the pic of Baden! Rex is quite the character - hahaa!

And you - you're looking tiny and cute for 6 months! I think I'm maybe less than a week ahead of you in pregnancy but I look (and sometimes feel) ready to pop any second :D Happy Sunday!

Precious! Their personalities are just adorable! Enjoy all that sunshine and fresh air! Oh, and in your title "the final tri", with all your healthy eating I read that as "the final tri"athlon"! Clicked on the post expecting to see you decked out in workout gear and running a tri with that cute belly of yours ;) haha!

They grow so fast, don't they? I have 2 boys, ages 9 and 11 and they couldn't be more different in their personalities. They are so much fun. I wish I could have looked as tiny as you when I was pregnant! Your previous post about changing what you eat has inspired me. We try to eat healthy but could do much better. I'm a vegetarian and trying to find things my kids and hubby will eat is always difficult. It's great you have the support of your hubby, that definitely helps! Mine knows crap about good nutrition. We are in MN and are getting excited that Spring is just around the corner. Although it sounds like Old Man Winter might make another visit here soon. :-)

Wow! Quite the little personalities they have going on! Can't wait to see their characters grow once you throw a little girl in the mix! My son is a very protective and encouraging big brother, I love to see him with his sister. Enjoy every minute!

You are looking fab!

Boys are so great aren't they?! I am so glad you are writing down the memories of them.

When I give my 8 year old boy cuddles, I treasure them because I am well aware that before I know it, he will be taller than me and will be the one giving me bear hugs.

I can't believe Rex said that to you, that cracked me up! What a fun personality. I love his poses, too fun. Congrats on the 3rd trimester! You look great!

I am still following your nice blog and I can tell you, it's wonderful to have a baby again. My boys are 3 and 4.5 and already I feel they are getting old. My Babygirl is now 6 weeks and I enjoy every minute with her. And my boys are wonderful with the little one, they adore her. :)

Awww, Cheri you are looking awesome for being 6 mos. pregnant with your 3rd! And your little guy and his "cool" pose is adorable.

This was such a great post...I especially love seeing pics of your boys, since I have 2 of my own :) It's so much fun!!!

I die! Reminds me of George on Seinfeld when he had certain circles of friends he didn't mix. I get Rex, I so get it.

I think it's precious that Rex feels he can articulate his feelings about his growing independence. He does look pretty cool!
