Lil' P

Since today Presley is actually 4 months- I thought I'd snap a few photos :)

Where go?

The new obsession in this house is hiding.... Everywhere.... "I hide"....
Van loves to "hide" anywhere he can, but usually its in plain view with his face hidden.
He likes to put his blanket over anything and everything and say "where go??".
He, like many children, thinks that if he hides his face you can't see him. This is quite humorous when its time to go to bed, or do anything else unfavorable and he hides his eyes thinking he is now undetected.
Have I mentioned that I ADORE this boy??

These are the sounds that the animals make

Vander LOVES youtube. Usually it is "E I E I O" which consists of just about any video with a farm, or a horse or any animal for that matter. But today he was pretty darn thrilled about the "Animal Sounds" video. He is growing up so fast and I love watching him learn new things every day! He is getting very good at learning tunes to songs and actually starting to sing along at the right times. Its adorable and I love him :)

20 & 4- The crazys

Man oh man... It is craziness in this household! But truthfully, we wouldn't have it any other way. While Joel and I both try to juggle working full time and being full time stay at home parents at once.. These two continue to bless our lives and make it all the stress worth it!
The last 4 months have flown by! I can hardly believe that Presley is already 4 months! Where does the time go??
What are these little crazy nuggets up to these days?....

Presley Brooke-  4 Months

- LOVES to smile and flirt.
- Super ticklish and giggles like crazy
- Loves to goo, especially when you talk back to her while shes doing it
- Is always trying to shove both fists in her mouth

Vander Lee- 20 Months

- Thinks he is the funniest person alive- probably because we are always laughing
- Loves to be the center of attention- Always making sure everyone is watching him
-Loves "E I E I O" more than life itself. Any show with horses and a farm is considered E I E I O

- Starting to put together small  3-4 word sentences
- Any drink is "wawer" (water), doesn't matter if its milk, soda, juice... its WATER ;)

- He loves to sleep on the floor of his room with his blanket over his head
-Loves to hide and be found

We had the pleasure of watching Biko (Maddux and Reeses pet Betta fish) for the past week while Tarah and Drew went to Costa Rica. Over the week, Vander would ask multiple times a day to feed the fish. We would also walk into the kitchen to him balancing dangerously on any object he could find to boost himself high enough to look at the fish. He loves the fish and LOVES feeding it even more. So we thought... What the heck- lets buy the poor kid his own fish!
So last night we take a trek to Petsmart where Vander picks out his very own white Betta fish!
Talk about a cheap way to entertain a toddler on a Saturday night! Its like a mini zoo, but free! :)
He was in heaven looking at all of the animals and mostly the fish- and in the end, he got to take home his very own! As of right now, the fishie has been named "ssssss"- probably steming from the snake that he saw in the cage at Petsmart that absolutely TERRIFIED him.... Another name may be determined shortly.
I'm sure this is the first of many many fish in the Ingram house.

Hot and Muggy Saturday...

Today it is hot.. and muggy... and cloudy- But Van was adament about playing outside! Why do I live in this state?? Arizona is so friggin hot in the summer- ugh!
Anywho... We had some fun playing on the back patio with some bowls of water and kitchen supplies. Who would have thought this would have been SO fun?? Cheap entertainment on a hot muggy day!

 The face you get when you ask Vander to say "Cheese"... note to self.. this is not an effective way to get a natural smile for a photo :)
